Let's talk about Alyx
I know that many people don't like Alyx, I understand why... (I don't need an explaination)
Anyway let's talk about her, like for instance, what might happen to her in HL3 or what DO any of you like about Alyx... I like Alyx quite a bit, in fact she is my favorite heroine... (I know this sound like horror to you, someone likes Alyx a lot) SO WHAT!

(Read at your own risk of any potential spoilers)
I think she will play an important part in HL3 though, don't know whether she is gonna go into some beserker mode or just stay behind because poor Eli got killed, and it's hard for anyone to get over, I mean you should listen to the commentaries, because I listened to all of them, some of them are actually by Alyx's voice actress, Merle Dandridge, and in her last commentary near the end before you go down into the chopper, it's just, I alsmost felt like crying because Eli is so important to Alyx, and at that last scene you see Eli die and Alyx crying over his dead body, I almost felt like I was going to die (as Gordon Freeman) for some measly second. :(

Another thing is about Alyx concerning HL3 is to most Alyx haters, that everything is going to change between her and Gordon......*yuck* :P

But if it's just like any of you to plot some demice against Alyx that she is going to die getting sucked into some Combine Universe, then I'm out.......

I guess the only thing that I like most about Alyx is her kind personality...
Yeah, lets also discuss about any funny stuff about Alyx too for instance, have you ever seen her do the Moon-walk? Or even better, the Running-Man? All of these things happened to me, ok not literally those break-dance moves, but they looked like them. Still I've had so many lol times while playing Ep2 in paritcular, Alyx has some how managed to make me laugh over 100 times already. Say I'm holding some piece of wood in front of her face, she'd just cross her eyes at it, or like some time were she went a head and got angry at the vortigaunt. (She pushed him away because he was standing to close to her, and came back next to me)

Anyway, post whatever you want about the topic, just make sure you don't post any hate comments about Alyx, you can easily keep that to yourself... otherwise, it's not part of the topic to just say how much you hate Alyx! This is about like.

You do know you can't report for people disagreeing with you? Doing so is more likely to get you temp banned.

On topic:
Alyx is ok. I like her personality enough I just don't like Alyx dates. I hate having an AI follow me around. Either they are invincible which ruins the realism, or they are not invincible and can be killed which is even more annoying.

This is why Alyx needs to suffer from what I call "Cortana syndrome" Alyx needs to be "present" to be an emotional sounding board. She sets the mood. However, I don't want her physically to be following me around.

In my opinion Bioshock Infinite is the only game that managed to do a companion well. They did that by having her avoid combat. Alyx would never avoid a fight so having her do this wouldn't work.

I have a theory that Alyx is literally going to be turned into an AI. This would make her present and relevant but remove her physically.

Now for no reason EMOTES!

I only partially agree with you... However, if this is the overall reason that people dislike Alyx then fine, I like her being around me in the game I find it fun sticking together with people, and another thing... I do not believe Alyx will be turned into a Cortana, if she does I may as well call it Halo instead of Half Life.... so sad :( Because in my opinion, Alyx RULES!!! Plus she high fived me in HL2 Ep2 making her believeable (flashing a light over her face will cause her to look like she is going to high five!

Personally, i don't hate Alyx, but she ended up being the "character that says the obvious things", and that is a bit annoying.

Alyx: "Did you see that?"
Gordon: "Yes Alyx, i did see the giant antlion that almost shredded me to pieces..."

She is like the Navi of the Half-Life series.

Then play L4D or make some friends to play multiplayer games with. Alyx is barely more than a 'chell'(PORTAL PUN) of a person. She isn't that interesting. Has the same lines and little reactionary observations.

I think there are more differences between Halo and Half Life than Alyx. Alyx is not Half Life. The original Half Life had no Alyx and is by far the best game.

Not trying to be rude, but it seems like you should be playing multiplayer games. Try Portal2 coop. That seems like the kind of game for you.

I smell a lot of fail in your post just because of that line. You can't report people for disagreeing with you, jeez. But anyway, I am not sure why people would "not" like Alyx. She's like one if not the only "cute" female of the serie... She's also a nice and fun character with a nice personality. For me, she's a great character to have around. These are only my opinions, that said.

I don't have the space on my PC to play other multiplayer games, second, I don't even have Portal 2 yet... sort waiting for one of my friends to give it to me for my B-day.
AND, here is surprising thing, how many males play HL2 more than females?
Obviously 80 - 90% of males play it in the overall, I mean, how many females does any of you know that play this great game? Well, now you know one more, yes thats right, I'm a female... :slapface: this explains the reason to me liing Alyx a lot.

And one more thing... HL1 came out a few days after I was born, does this mean that HL3 will come out when I die? (not a real question but have fun answering it if you want)

Or another thing, it explains why I love, love Half Life so much, I've heard about it my whole life, so it's important to me! one more thing, Alyx is in HL1 you just never see her, but she was there somewhere...If you've ever played the mod of HL1, Black Mesa, then some bit you press "e" on Eli and he'll say, "I've got to go find some place safe for Isaac, so I can find my family" I don't, however, know if this is in the original HL1, I've only played the mod version... :epicslapface:

And again, I looked through some English captions for Black Mesa and I found that there is a thing that Eli says as well, something about having lunch with Alyx and Azian.

P.S. I have a theory, now that I mention Azian, (well I sort of got this theory from my cousin) that Azian could still be alive, wasn't she "supposedly dead?" "SUPPOSEDLY?" Anyways I don't know, but if she is still alive and has been captured, then wouldn't it be emotional to see her in HL3? Just this one more thing to say then I'm done, I do now quite a bit about HL-HL2 ok? So do not bother to think I know little, I've done my research, and searchings. -VBX :D

I know I failed a bit but I ment that because I've heard so many hate comments about Alyx, I get sick of them, (trying not to read them) people wishing shed just die, :.( I ment for people not to post those kind of hate messages, this is to mainly talk about the goods things about Alyx... Not the bad things, sorry for my inconveniance, :) oh and want might happen in the future, lol
If I hated Alyx what would be like? Lets see, "DIE ALYX, DIE! You idiot you dare get in my way?" Noooo, highly unlikely... LOL
Sera May 25, 2013 @ 8:54am 
lol, well... Alyx is a character you can't really hate or you need to be a real jerk to hate her. She's friendly, she's rather helpful. Sure, she sometimes get in the way but who cares?

Agreed, there are more characters that get in the way besides Alyx. I would ask all you guys out there, "Do you have something against girls?" That's not a personal question, I'm assuming "Not really" it's ok I know, Alyx is probably just one of those characters that most guys dislike...

On the other hand, Judith Mossman, now she annoyed me more than anyone in HL2, I still like her, but she just annoys me a bit, gee, she sounds like my mother (figure of speech) or better yet much rather Alyx's mother... in quote of Mossman, "The Zero Point Energy Field Manipulator is not a toy, Alyx"

"Oh yeah? Really? Don't let this old lady spoil our fun, Alyx." -Gordon Freeman (a.k.a me, that's what I would say, lol)

Yeah, sure, like really, the Grav Gun is a toy, especially when it became supercharged and you got to throw combine soldiers all over the place, now that was so awesome. Hey guys lets go play with the Gravity Gun, and we'll just shoot boxes at each other, and declare box fights!! lol

Alyx is going to go absol-freaking-lutely APESH*T in Episode 3.

Plus if Gordon is going out with Alyx in the future, i'm just going to flip my desk while yelling, "♥♥♥♥ YEA"!!!!!!!!!!!!

YEA in a good way? Because my reaction to if marraige was concerned would be, :D, I would wonder what everyone would be like towards Gordon, the guy marrying them would be like,

"Gordon, do you take Alyx to be your wife?"

Gordon's reaction, :O

That Guy's reaction, "Gordon? Gordon? Your supposed to say something?"

Gordon's reaction again, O:

*Gordon just stares*

"Well, I guess we can't marry these two people because Gordon can't even say 'I do' "

Don't bother, if something like that was to ever happen, (not the bit Gordon not saying a word) they should make it cool, bring in an army of Combine to crash the ceremony or something, and then everyone pulls out some heavy machine guns!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Huh. I didn't really read forums and stuff back when HL2 and the Eps came out. I'm only now checking out the forums because I'm replaying them all. I didn't know people hated Alyx. I'm surprised by that. She's actually my all-time favorite female game character. I wouldn't enjoy these games even half as much if she hadn't been there. Also, don't take this the wrong way, Vortibugx, you're a little bonkers, lol.

Ok, I don't get what you mean by bonkers but, high five! Finally more people who don't hate Alyx, I'm happy.. lol
makaspaka May 28, 2013 @ 5:45am 
I was just kidding. I said you were bonkers because of your excitedness level. But, yeah, Alyx is great, imo. Gordon is cool and everything, but being a silent protaganist, he doesn't really add any emotional weight to the story. Alyx gives you something to care about and adds some personality to the story.
