Merging with 'Advanced Knee Replacement' Page?[edit]

Maybe this should be merged with the Advanced Knee Replacement page? They are essentially the same thing, as they both protect the test subject from getting hurt, and they both have the metal spring in the back. Shaprepenr 20:03, April 14, 2011 (UTC)

That sort of feels like if we merged the HEV Suit with the Powered Combat Vest to me. Which name would the merged article use? SteveZombie 20:23, April 14, 2011 (UTC)
I disagree. The two armors are different as they are not used by the same person and do not have the exact same function. The boot and the heel replacements are basically the same, as they share the exact same function (protecting the test subject from long falls by illiminating impact force and keeping the subject upright when landing) and are both used by Chell. I would probably stick with "Advanced Knee Replacement'" but within the article, state that it is also known as the "Long Fall Boot." Shaprepenr 20:55, April 14, 2011 (UTC)
I couldn't think of a better example. I think it's made more complicated by virtue of the fact that both pieces of equipment (referring to the footwear again now) are very much officially named and distinguished from one another. The way I see it the most we should probably do is have some sort of equipment category (if there isn't one already) and lump them in together that way, but I could be wrong here without a doubt.

While they serve the same purpose, these are different items, and from different eras. One are just boots you can put on and take off, the other is embedded in your body. Valve purposely parted from the original item, so it's important we keep them separate. Klow 03:29, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
