I've been gone for a bit due to a move from Al to GA and it took a while to get the Net up and running. But that's all behind me now. I hope. Anyhoo, back to business.
Situation #1 Winner: HECU Marines. The way I see it, Adrian Shephard is on par with Gordon Freeman. And The HECU Marines are even better than the rebs from half life 2. So if, so far, the actual characters from half life are the Victors against the Combine, then I see the Marines takin' the Victory here.
Situation #2 Winner: Same as Sit #1. Adding the Black Ops just makes it easier for the marines and Shephard.
If there is anything I missed or you just plain disagree, post a comment to let me know or send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Until next time.
