  1. Half-Life Lore Trivia Question
    Not this week, sorry.

    Here’s an unofficial one for you all:
    Marc Laidlaw once mentioned he had considered creating a son for Colonel Odessa Cubbage. What was his name?

    This is a really obscure one, since it came up once on Twitter years ago when I tweeted my comic at Marc Laidlaw. I’m fairly sure it’s on the Combine OverWiki and the Half-Life Wiki, but I doubt most people know it without going to look for it.

    Full disclosure: I was never sure if he was joking or not.

    1. WOW, that’s a super tough one.

      1. It does have the dubious advantage of coming from a Twitter conversation that doesn’t even exist anymore (since Marc Laidlaw deleted his original account), though I’m sure he would vouch for it if asked. But like I said, could even have been a joke by him.

        Mind you, the answer isn’t “Hercule Cubbage”, though it’s because of Hercule that I learned this bit of trivia way back when!
