Considering how they have an almost hive mind connection and the Nihilanth was mind controlling them, I actually don’t think any are.
That’s a good point and I’ve thought about that as well. It…
I had always assumed that the Vorts aren’t a fully constant hive mind. They’re connected no doubt, but they can’t read eachother’s minds. Or else verbal communication would be pointless to them.
They can assume direct commutation at will, but it may require quite a bit of concentration and control like how they had to all band together to heal Alyx. Also if they were all directly connected via a hive mind at all times the Vort that saved you and Alyx in Episode 2 wouldn’t have needed to call out to the other Vorts in the mountains.
It’s a better assumption that Vorts are connected via psychological and empathetic links. For example: say you’re out eating at a restaurant and you see a guy three tables down from you. To you, as a human, you don’t know that guy. He’s a stranger to you. He could be the best guy in the world or the biggest asshole. You as a human just don’t know. You can’t trust him 100%. If he starts acting crazy, you can only assume the worst. If he starts acting generous to you, you can only assume he wants something in return. Unless a person is apart of your direct family (who are people that can still surprise you) you can’t predict with absolute certainty what another person is going to do.
Vorts don’t have this problem. Every Vort knows the other Vort and they all trust one another. It don’t matter if they’ve never met that particular Vort before, Because they know they would never do wrong to another Vort therefore the other Vort will never do wrong to them. It’s sorta like a bee hive or a ant mound. They don’t fight with one another. They’re all sisters and they all trust one another and get impressive work done because of it. Vorts are all related and connected and have no desire to fight with other Vorts. So it’s safe to assume when one Vort feels a way about something (Combine bad, Humans good) They ALL feel that way.
It’s actually a rather peaceful society once you think about it.
I’ll bet the whole thing about humans lying to one another and not trusting all other humans must have blown their minds.
To the other day I was just doodling when I drew this masterpiece. My character (and by association, me) has very short arms and very tiny hands. Hands that can do nothing. There’s a common joke going around that I can’t touch my face, much less the top of my head, so someone said ‘PUT A HAT ON HER! SHE CAN’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT!’
Yeah. Well. MAYBE I CAN’T. FUCK YOU. I’M STILL A PERSON. WITH FEELINGS.
'Lest Zeebra likes my tiny hands.
I just want you to know that your art is absolutely marvelous~!
HI HI HI THIS IS ABOUT YOUR AWESOME AMAZING FREEMANCE ART Sooooooo would it maybe be possible for you to draw Alyx with female!Gordon and/or Gordon with male!Alyx? Even just a sketch? Queer, half-genderbends need more love.
I don’t see why not. Do you have a particular Male!Alyx/Female!Gordon you’d like me to draw or take my own spin on it?
Sorry for the out of the blue query but I was wondering if you had heard the Bioshock songs made by Miracle of Sound? I'd be more than happy to show them to you if you haven't.
You know honestly I don’t think I have seen ‘em.
When you want to RP as your OCs but yoU CAN’T BECAUSE YOUR OCS DON’T FIT IN ANYWHERE EXCEPT FOR THE UNIVERSE YOU CREATED FOR THEM
This is why you make OC’s out of universe :I
This speaks to me on a alligator interacting with humans level.

My only regret is I’m not able to contribute more.

The closest thing we’re ever getting to HL3
Makes no fret to me. I’ll fallow all the team members I do wherever they wander.
I find it truly amazing that a model from 2004 looks better and is capable of more emotion than anything modders have done to try to improve it in the last ten years. It takes less than ten years for complete from-the-ground-up remakes of games to come out, but attempting to change Alyx Vance results in nothing but horrific sex dolls.
To say nothing about the outfits.
The last photo of Alyx looks all like 'Why you do dis modders?'
