Gamespot have huffed up their impressions of Half-Life 2: Episode Two. Here's an excerpt of the said preview:
"The final sequence of the demo saw Gordon facing off against a number of tripod walkers in and around what appeared to be an abandoned cabin. Choosing to use his gravity gun almost exclusively, Gordon was forced to improvise as he moved in and out of the cabin by smashing windows and jumping through them to evade the enemies' attacks. Objects that got hurled at the walkers during the fight included old tires, an axe, a rock, a large water trough, and some kind of sticky bomb or magnetic explosive that landed on the walker's head and stayed there until Gordon detonated it with another well-placed shot."
As always, the unabridged preview is a much more refreshening and filling read in indulging in.
EDIT - The YouTube user hot564321 has an onset of 5 new Episode 2 gameplay Flash videos, one new Team Fortress 2 Video, and one new Portal Video (all as seen at the Leipzig Games Convention, as showcased by VALVe Software, of course). up, which also can be accessed through in the user's profile. And then... in other news.... this may leave some registering a shock that may lump disparaging words of hooplah into the community: Half-Life 2: Episode Two has been delayed from the end of this year to February 2007.
