    I'm pretty sure the least of an evil alien with mind control's worries is whether or not it's willy is flopping around. Vortagaunts don't wear loincloths, why should the controllers?
    Well it had the loin cloth in HL1 so I don't see why not.

    I saw a spray of something like that once.

    And now I don't play HL2DM anymore.

    For those talking about USS Darkstar I emailed Neil Manke about it a long long time ago and he said that there was never a story planned for Darkstar 2 and that it wouldn't be coming because they had all moved on from it.

    Haha, they kept the translation error from Half-Life, the EQ Lab with "Superbus Via Inscientiae" on its emblem. My friend said it means something like "Ignorance Through Science".

    From what I gather, that's an interpretation and not a literal translation because the actual choice of words is mostly a nonsensical mess.

    Yeah, inscientia means ignorance, and superbus can be interpreted as either "superior" or "arrogant". So it would be something like "superiority through ignorance" or "arrogance through ignorance".

    according to Google translate: "Proud of the way of ignorance." which makes sense, when you remember one of the signs (I believe it's towards the beginning of "Office Complex") reads "Work Harder, Not Smarter."

    Will people stop getting so uppity fuck about changes? Yes, there are going to be changes. Yes, the style will change. It's a different, and diverse team, and different people will want to make different decisions. Ram said that they changed it, not stormseeker. And for that matter, why don't you guys complain about the thousands of other changes, like Anomalous Materials and it's complete design overhaul from the first game.

    Bitchity-Bitch-Bitch, all day long, and not a single person wants to let them change their precious game in a Fucking Remake.

    That's not the point, they change some things, but they keep other things, even if they're actual issues for no reason.

    Guys, how about you wait until the mod comes out, then complain about the bullsquid's eyes while you play?

    I honestly can't imagine someone running through a level being attacked by a bullsquid on hard difficulty thinking "GOD those eyes are so out of place". And you can always make a skin for it if you really can't stand it.

    And you know, the eyes being there doesn't make the bullsquid not squid-like. The mouth still looks like a squid's tentacles.

    "DE EYEZ ARE SO OUT OF PLACE 0/10 WOULD NOT PLAY"

    The new eye placement for the bullsquid would make sense since it is a predator.

    It's going to be a huge part of Source history and the change will forever change the Half-Life spirit. I don't know if the sacrifice is worth it.

    Okay, mod dream over.
    I hope Valve pick this up to put on Steam. It would seem odd not to, after the fanfare the mod section revived, then nothing until the Steam Workshop.
    It would make downloading it easier. I'm with TalkTalk (strike one), with wonderful UK connection speeds that can download as much as 230kb/s!!! (strike 2) and I'm about 5 miles from the nearest phone exchange, and I'm sure a BT technician keeps pulling out my plug down there (IT'S OUT OF THE PARK!).

    why would they change the sign when the sign makes sense/is funny considering black mesa's view on its own work and workers anyway?

    there are a lot of gameplay design decisions in the original half-life that either dont make that much sense (prompting less of a "this is hard" reaction and more of a "what was the point of this?" reaction) or don't translate well today with this engine. these are, mostly, the things they changed for black mesa.

    makes sense to me.

    I don't actually get their reasoning for moving the eyes. They say it's so you can see what it's looking at and doing, but what about the rest of the head? It always points where the bullsquid is looking. Are you really going to see the eyes looking at you before you see the tentacles pointing at you?

    To be honest, for the longest time I didn't even realize the damn things DID have eyes. In Half-Life 1 I always mistook their eyes for giant pimples.

    Yeah, and Vortiguants went from rough, patchy, webbed skin to having featureless, smooth, almost slimy looking skin. Headcrabs went from being very small and thin with visible organs inside to roughly watermelon sized with a patch of skin inside. Barnacles went from being cone-like blobs of flesh with lots of teeth to having 4 teeth and an inner-mouth. Better go bitch at Valve for changing it so much.

    After it comes out, you can pretty much guarantee that.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we see BM snpcs as well, and the eventual BM Gmod coop mode, with a complimentary server to go with it.

    Is the BMS team going to change the vortigaunt up to look more like the original? headcrab? It just feels weird having a copy of the hl2 vortigaunt attacking me since they are all friendly, not as menacing looking.

    Nope. I guess since the goal is to make HL more in line with HL2 and its episodes they really have no reason to change them, since that would contradict that.

    They do have new slave collars though.
