Steam Update

A new Steam Message (thanks Frans) mentions the Red Orchestra free trail that's currently underway, describes Valve's plans to show off Episode Two, including TF2 and Portal, at the Leipzig Game Convention. The update also mentions the coming of a Steam Store, which is currently undergoing beta testing, and there is a link to opt-in to the testing for those interested.

The "big story" spans the three episodes, if I'm taking it correctly. Think of it like a chapter in a book... well, there aren't any chapters in your colouring book, bad example.

The story is more compressed, which may be what it needed - I personally felt vehicle sequences and such in HL2 were just there to meet some arbitrary requirement of length. In EP1 there's not really any filler. I also liked EP1 more because of the atmospheric elements - Alyx was very well implemented and felt pretty close to human, and thus it did not take much suspension of disbelief to get drawn into the game.


NAAAARF!
