# Two is company, three's a crowd

Should the northern wall serve beer
The first of me and the last of a beloved voice
Dark and flat on high
A popular Dino and hard metal senator
The beginning of a life without meaning and a song of a nation
Lloyd Banks and change minus one, with a Y chromosome

All of the lines/clues are related to a single thing.

What is that thing?

Edit: Here are some more lines that might help, but mostly for more fun:

I see the end ahead and lateral scuttling
If Isaac Newton and Samuel Colt had a child, maybe

• Looks like you've got everyone stumped – Beastly Gerbil May 4 '16 at 19:36
• @BeastlyGerbil I will add a clue if no one has figured it out or made a good attempt by tomorrow – Gordon Allocman May 4 '16 at 19:47

I think the answer is

Half-Life

Should the northern wall serve beer

Wallace Breen (Wall N + ace + beer, all mixed up)
or Crowbar (as revealed by Gordon Allocman)

The first of me and the last of a beloved voice

Gordon Freeman (First part of the asker's username, Gordon Allocman, plus last of Morgan Freeman, a beloved voice, thanks to Patrick Roberts)

Dark and flat on high

Black Mesa

A popular Dino and hard metal senator

Barney Calhoun (Barney the dinosaur + John C. Calhoun, nicknamed the "cast-iron man")

The beginning of a life without meaning and a song of a nation

Nihilanth (First parts of Nihilistic + anthem)

Lloyd Banks and change minus one, with a Y chromosome

G-man (Thanks to Dan Russell in first answer, G-unit minus unit plus man)

I see the end ahead and lateral scuttling

If Isaac Newton and Samuel Colt had a child, maybe

Gravity Gun (thanks to question_asker)

All of them

Appear in the series of games Half-Life

Two is company, three's a crowd

Possible reference to the much publicised delay of the third game. Thanks to commenters gannolloy and question_asker for bringing this up.

• Does the title relate at all to that show? – gannolloy May 5 '16 at 16:13
• @gannolloy insofar as people have been clamoring for a third and it hasn't come – question_asker May 5 '16 at 16:15
• The last one is ROT13(tenivgl tha) – question_asker May 5 '16 at 16:16
• This looks like it must be right, though I would've had no chance, not being familiar with the series. Shouldn't this question have a knowledge tag at least? – Dan Russell May 5 '16 at 16:30
• Yup, that is it, your interpretation of the first clue is not what I had intended but it ends up working! I didn't tag this video games because I thought it would be too big of a clue – Gordon Allocman May 5 '16 at 16:42

Possible partial answer to get the ball rolling:

Last line:
"Lloyd Banks and change" (50-cent) make up G-unit
"Minus one" could mean take away "unit" leaving G
"Y-chromosome" implies male, so G-male or Gmail or G-man (related to OP, Gordon Allocman? G-man!)

Mail providers or Google services

• I may have gotten the second one: SPOILER, though I'm not sure about the connection... – paste May 5 '16 at 2:03
• @paste Post as answer. It helps others solve the puzzle. Nice one, by the way. – cst1992 May 5 '16 at 7:05
• You are very close with that clue, but you missed the mark with your conclusion – Gordon Allocman May 5 '16 at 12:39
• The first of me [(G)ordon] and the last of a beloved voice [Morgan Free(man)] => (male) = Gmail? – Patrick Roberts May 5 '16 at 13:32
• @PatrickRoberts I think you might be missing the forest for the trees there – Gordon Allocman May 5 '16 at 13:55
