MORE frequently. You've gotten an episode every year and a half or so, which is arguably a lot faster than you'd be getting non-episodic Half-Life content.

Is Left 4 Dead going to be launched together with Ep. 3 like the case with TF2 and Ep. 2 in the Orange Box?

I thought that HL2 was goodish. EP1 was okay. EP2 was pretty good (Bugs were annoying as all hell. End battle was just ridiculous, why the hell would I use some new weapon when the old ones are just as good? They should have replaced the gun on the car with a multi-rocket launcher.)

I personally thought Portal beat out every other game (I'm a serious conceptual Einstein's universe geek, so it was godlike.)

I don't think so as it is being developed by Turtle Rock and not Valve, also I am guessing Left 4 Dead will be finished before Ep3. We haven't seen anything on Ep3 yet.

I'm looking forward to it.

I thought that episode one was very much below par compared to HL2 (though still enjoyable), but that episode two was fantastic - espcially the climactic battle against the striders. Valve has a unique and enjoyable style to their games.

The thing is though, in both episodes I was longing for more time to play individually, away from Alyx and the other characters. In HL2 I felt the balance was about right between playing by yourself and with other characters, but in the episodes it was far too much. They get in the way, they say stupid stuff, and inevitably when they are around the game feels far more linear than when you're free to do what you want. Unfortunately I doubt this will change much in ep3. Please let Alyx die...

Yeah, I was playing through Episode 1 for the first time during the school year. I got bored and could never finish it.

I know, episode 1 wasn't half life quality gaming...

Episode 2 is pretty good though, I'm looking forward to whatever bundle 3 comes with.

I'm hoping the bundle will consist of... Ep3, L4D, Portal 2... Counter-Strike 2?

edit: And by CS2, i don't mean cs:s

and DNF will come out tomorrow. Seriously, at most it'd be EP3/Portal2 or EP3/L4D. I doubt that though, the bundle probably won't include L4D. CS2 is just a dream >=(
