Half-Life 2 "Off Camera" Secrets Shows Off More Than Just the Main Game

So no, it's not breaking news about Half-Life 3 (we can dream!) but it is an interesting perspective on a title that fans really did enjoy, the beloved Half-Life 2. In order to dampen the pain of what could have been, fans of the Half-Life series continue to dig deeper into the world infested by aliens with Gordon Freeman's crowbar once again at the ready.

"Wake up, Mister Freeman. Wakeup and smell the ashes..." opens up the video with G-Man front and center. The video is one episode of many available for the web series "Boundry Break" and this particular one goes beyond the walls of Half-Life 2 and digs a little deeper. By taking the camera "anywhere we want," previously undiscovered secrets are uncovered. You can even see what G-Man himself is up to in between in between his appearances in the game.

For those unaware, here is the official description of Half-Life 2 which made its debut back in 2004:

"By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviors even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

The player again picks up the crowbar of research scientist Gordon Freeman, who finds himself on an alien-infested Earth being picked to the bone, its resources depleted, its populace dwindling. Freeman is thrust into the unenviable role of rescuing the world from the wrong he unleashed back at Black Mesa. And a lot of people he cares about are counting on him."
