       Eli is dead!   
    I have no idea what I'd choose. I'd need to know more about that thing in the Borealis to make a decision.
    sure,    Eli is Dead     but we still have the choice.

    Anyone seen this? I think this will go good in Episode 3:



    For those who dunno what it is, its a Panther Eye, a HL1 Beta alien that was Scrapped for some stupid reason, but it was actually a good idea IMO. Maybe it could be remade in EP3 or HL3.
    I'd like to see them again. Antlions and headcrabs have been the only animal type enemies for a while now. The change in setting is a good excuse for them to add something new, too.

    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!

    Maybe a headcrab toy that jumps up when you squeeze its body or a Gordon Freeman figure complete with crowbar and gravity gun attachments.

    Still, you cant deny the Panther Eye looks awesome, if the Valve developers were going to reimplement a cut alien into the series, it better be either the Panther Eye or the Bullsquid.

    Still you cant deny the Panther Eye is probably the best out of the scrapped aliens, if the Valve developers were to ever reimplement a cut alien into the series, it might as well be the Panther Eye or Bullsquid.

    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?

    Its pretty obvious to everyone, unless its really a large migrational point (which I dont think it is, considering the plot hole of how the hell they got there)

    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.

    Episode 3

    The 9th class correlation is so obvious that it could be true

    but probably not because Valve hates us

    With six minutes left in the half hour and L4D2 + Dota 2's beta even beating that, I'd say it's a little underwhelming.

    Edited:

    HL2 overtook L4D2, but I still don't see how this will accomplish anything anyway.

    It's because of shit like this that I'm still in Route Canal, although it's the part I dislike the most.
