View Full Version : Alex's tube in Area 51.

22nd Nov 2003, 16:24
Hey there. After reading through the DX:IW character profiles on PlanetDeusEx, it got me wondering: does anyone remember about several people claiming that they could walk straight through Alex's stasis tube in Area 51? It prompted many people to start saying that perhaps the tube was a hologram, i.e. not really there, and therefore Alex easily survived whatever happened to the facility.

I was wondering how many people here had experienced this 'ghost' tube? I'm thinking that it must've just been some bug or something, because after replaying the game recently, there was nothing wrong with the stasis tube. To me, it was just as solid as the other three. :confused:

So for you guys: is your Alex tube reality or illusion? :eek:

if i remember correctly there was a test tube with alex's name on it but it was empty. That would explain everything but i might be remembering wrong.

No that was JC's tube that was empty (because he was standing right next to it! :p ). Alex's tube was occupied. But what I'm saying is that a lot of people claimed that they could walk straight through Alex's tube, as if it wasn't even there. This caused many to start inventing complex theories. But for me, it was just as solid as the others. So I'm wondering what it was like for other people?

I too experienced Alex's tube a solid as all the other tubes. I am also curious... Any theories based on the assumption that Alex was in Area 51?

it was not the tube that was not solid : with legs aug, you could jump IN the tube, and inside Alex was not solide.

Hello everybody!
As far as I can remember, Alex´s tube was solid.
But gumrucker, I don´t think that Alex was in Area 51 before. His tube was there but I think he was born in a Versa-Life building or anywhere else.
Did I understood you right?

I rekon Alex was actually there, why would they have a hologram? Alex was destroyed in the explosion when JC took out Area 51, and was reborn/cloned again afterwards, by the powers that be.

My reason? I realise they used the same model for each of the clones, but I rekon he looked about 20 in the stasis tube. In DX2, Alex (talking to Billie Adams) mentions that they joined the project at fourteen.....far younger than the figure in Area 51.

The fact that Alex in Area 51 is intangible is irrelevant, its just a glitch.....a code typo if you must.

I just went through the room and you can walk through alex's tube and walk through alex. You can also walk through Page's clone and Simon's clone's tubes, but their bodies are solid. It's probably just a bug though, and doesn't mean anything.
