No HL2 Ep 3 News: Ha Ha; L4D2 Movies

There's an Interview with Doug Lombardi on Joystiq talking with the Valve rep (who gets an assist from Chet Faliszek) about a variety of topics, including PS3 support and quite a bit on Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2. They kick things off by asking about Half-Life 2 Episode 3, the final installment in the episodic shooter expansion that was intended to shorten the wait for further Half-Life 2 content. Doug's response was to laugh and say, "Stay tuned! No news on that today." There's also an interview with Doug on Computer and Video Games accompanied by Exclusive Left 4 Dead 2 footage in the form of three gameplay clips.

did valve suddenly forget about all of that physics stuff they did with hl2?
Why can't i move chests and cupboards to seal off doors, hallways windows?
Why can't a choose if i want to carry an explosive instead of a med pack?
Why aren't there more co-operative objectives?
Why aren't there more puzzles as in hl2?
Why can't I explore more? (yeah dynamic maps, now that would be cool)
These are things I generally like to see in games but in L4D their exclusion is why it just works. Everything is kept as simple as possible so it's all down to the raw gameplay. That's why 4 random people can just jump into a game and decent enough teamplay is the norm, rather than the exception.
