Leipzig: Portal, TF2 vids
Valve is showing off footage of the mods attached to Half-Life 2: Episode Two, expected on the PC, 360 and PS3 later this year. Team Fortress 2 is the grossly delayed follow-up to the Quake and Half-Life 1 multiplayer mods. Players switch between several different classes as their team tries to breach another team's base defenses. In Portal, players solve a series of difficult single-player puzzles by warping various objects (and themselves) through space. UPDATE: There are five videos of Episode Two itself (1 2 3 4 5). UPDATE 2: Valve's Doug Lombardi says that Episode Two has been delayed until at least February of 2007. On the plus side, the gun from Portal may find its way into multiplayer mods, or Episode Three.
