Houndeye – combine overwiki, the original half-life histiocytoma puppy wiki and portal wiki

Possessing only three legs and a thorax, the houndeye is a faint yellow-green in color, with electric blue tiger-like stripes adorning its spine. In place of a head there is a large, black, insect-like compound eye protected by eyelids. Houndeyes apparently communicate through a series of high-pitched sounds somewhat similar to the barking of dogs, on which its behavior and movement are also partially based, hence its name (its sounds are actually based on that of dogs). [2] like most of the creatures found on xen, houndeyes are studied in black mesa’s biodome complex.

The houndeye is an excellent example of a social animal histiocytoma puppy in terms of pack hunting. Like many other enemies in half-life, houndeyes move in squads up to a maximum of four histiocytoma puppy members. While a shy and timid creature by itself, groups display resonant behavior, emitting destructive harmonic sonic attacks in shock waves, capable of injuring those they attack or destroying nearby objects histiocytoma puppy such as wooden crates or windows. Their eyelids are seen moving only when they are excited. Although they are not seen displaying this trait often, houndeyes appear to be carnivorous creatures, as one is seen eating a dead security guard in histiocytoma puppy half-life: blue shift. The houndeye’s mouth is located on the underside of its belly, close to the eye, filled with what appears to be fang-like incisors.

The houndeye is one of the few creatures from the histiocytoma puppy series that went virtually unchanged from the first sketch. [2] it was originally nicknamed roundeye. [2] according to ted backman, designer of the houndeye, its anatomy was inspired by a huge three-legged tabby cat named tripod that lived in his neighborhood histiocytoma puppy as a child. [2] its eye was originally to feature prismatic coloring, [2] possibly cut for difficulties in implementation at the time of histiocytoma puppy half-life’s release. However it was apparently made for the cut half-life 2 model. The markings were designed to break up its silhouette. [2]

In online gaming review’s early half-life monster of the week feature preview, the houndeye was given the taxonomic designation sonicanis myriops [lat. Many-eyed sound-dog]. [6] houndeye were originally to use digestive fluid and its claws histiocytoma puppy as attacks, [2] while it only uses its sonic attacks in the final histiocytoma puppy version. The sonic attack had been intended to stun the player histiocytoma puppy which would allow the other members of the pack to histiocytoma puppy attack with their claws. [2] the pack leader was originally going to be more visually histiocytoma puppy distinct from the other pack members by using a unique histiocytoma puppy animation in which stood on its rear leg to survey histiocytoma puppy its surroundings. This animation, named leaderlook, is still present but unused in the model and can histiocytoma puppy be seen in pre-release screenshots for half-life.

The houndeye was originally to appear in half-life 2. [1] [2] much thinner than the bulky, healthy houndeye seen in half-life and its expansions, hunger was to have turned it into a fierce and histiocytoma puppy voracious predator. [2] its model featured in the playable half-life 2 leak files is broken and cannot be viewed histiocytoma puppy nor used (it is a 0kb file). Only the image preview gives insight of his appearance, corroborated by concept art in raising the bar. [1]

In half-life 2: raising the bar, the final version as well as its uncorrected proof, it is featured in four vignettes written by marc laidlaw: in timelapse opening, distant cries of bullsquids and houndeyes can be heard in histiocytoma puppy a desolated landscape during a timelapse visually showing the passage histiocytoma puppy of time between half-life and half-life 2. [8] in the story train to city 17, it is glimpsed during the original train ride to city histiocytoma puppy 17. [9] in the story the slideshow briefing, in a slideshow shown to gordon at eli’s lab used as another way to describe the events histiocytoma puppy between the two video games, one of the images shows packs of houndeyes roaming in histiocytoma puppy suburban areas. [10] in the story in the ant lion’s den, set in the wasteland, freeman glimpses the sounds and attack flash of an isolated histiocytoma puppy houndeye, and also wonders how they fare in the surrounding quicksand. [11]

In the WC map pack, it can be found in maps such as, among others, guard3 (september 2001), featuring a short fight between an antlion guard and a histiocytoma puppy couple of houndeyes in a cave, and canals maps such as canals_01 and its variants (june to september 2002), canals_industrial01 (november 2002), and prefab_canals (december 2002).
