The final battle was a bit too arcadey for my tastes. Oddly enough Ep 1 seemed to me to have better design in general, though the plot and environments of Ep 2 were better.

TF2 has good art direction but not really my sort of thing. Portal though... very well done. It'd be fun to do a "mage" sort of game with the Source engine. Gravity gun and portal spells as the only two weapons. Use the cinematic physics to make buildings and such destructable. A multiplayer game sort of like Magic Carpet:
Claim areas for mana which is used to fuel the spells.

Anyway just imagine uprooting a tree and tossing it at someone through a portal ;)

Ideally fluid physics and speedtree would be nice features. (opening a portal in a river and seeing it pour through)

Nope. Not if you buy it from a store.

Incorrect, you still do need Steam to play it, you just don't need Steam to buy it (you can buy it from a store, but if you install it on your computer Steam will be installed with it).

Can't, Steam is required to run the game, it's heavily built into the game's architecture.

Also, HLP does note condone the discussion of piracy (obligatory anti-piracy remark). :p

 
too bad it's $50...  I don't particularly have that laying around these days :(
Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!

Any chance they'll break it apart after some time?  I've heard good things about portal, but HL2 bored me to the point where I couldn't finish it, so I'm unwilling to spend any money on it.

You can buy them separate from Steam.

Speaking of Portal, Rooster Teeth just put out a HILARIOUS comic about it:


Could we with ink the ocean fill, and were the skies of parchment made
Were every stalk on earth a quill, and every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above, would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole, though stretched from sky to sky!
