I think some enemies were "cut" from HL1 (or HL2) because they were simply not interesting (in Valve's eye) to make it in the game...
So, don't expect to see Mr.Friendly, Kingpin, Panther Eye, or Stukabat, Cremators... in other places than some mods...
(Panther Eye appears in Azure Sheep and Point of View).
I mean, you know how work Valve : they can create a super "cool" enemy/boss (visually), but if they find their creation "boring", they just cut it up. That's their way.
HL2 : Raising the Bar + Marc Laidlaw Vault (on SPUF) are two interesting databases on how much content was completly scrapped.
We still have the "chance" to have the cut content in free access, at least -_-
(Personally, I still miss that giant "Antlion King"... That would have been a cool boss battle, maybe Gonarch-style... Since the HL2 era, "boss battles" are nearly non-existent, besides some generic enemy becoming suddenly "special"... (like the Strider in the end of Ep1, and the StriderS in the end of Ep2).
Now that the creator of the HL CFC has fallen into madness and developed a messiah complex,
here is the official website of the HL CFC (WTF...) : www.messagetovalve.com
And another poster :
Next time, don't miss the official HL CFC mug, T-shirt, and stickers.
There'll be also a McDonald's menu, with Gman-shaped french fries, McAlyx Burger, Breen-shake, and other goodies!
Press the button in his back, and hear such quotes as:
"-Is it really that, TIME again?"
"-We'll SEE about THAT!"
"-Prepare... For unforeseen... Consequenses!"

The Panther Eye really looks like it could fit if placed correctly, too. It feels very reminiscent of the Vortigaunts with its big giant eye. Maybe they both lived on the same planet a long time ago?
All I can say about Episode 3 is that Gabe took away my copy.
I wish there were more people playing HL2:DM.
Anyways every time I see this thread it makes me go play Half Life 2 for a couple of hours.
Get The Revolver Or Crossbow Before Others Frag Fest.
Pyro is the 9th Class
on wikipedia, Episode 3 would be Valve's 9th game.
Pyro is the 3rd class in the list.
Meet the Pyro is coming.
11.000 people currently playing HL2.
HL2 overtook L4D2, but I still don't see how this will accomplish anything anyway.
Currently playing through Route Kanal again. Love the music in this chapter!
Number 3 is to this thread what number 7 is to Bungie.
Just figured I'd post this: playing HL2 for the thingy. Underneath-bridge-scene is the best scene.
Speaking of cut enemies, this one is my favourite:
Just look at this happy face
event over, we didn't make it in the top 10 -_-
massive failure -_-
I'm so fucking happy that this event motivate me to play HL2. I finally beat the part with the two helicopters inside nova prospect on hard.
You know what I just realized,
maybe kliener is keeping lamarr as a pet so it can grow into a gonarch
