    It's only supposed to demonstrate the new heavily upgraded Source Engine with added HDR and new facial rendering.

    no it isn't

    it's an experiment in seeing if offering games bit by bit gets more money than full releases

    Yup, that's pretty much it.

    Now that you mention it:

    It's supposed to be a "trilogy", so each episode priced at $20 would generate $60!!!

    And who would pay $60 for just one big expansion?

    Farkin Steam Rshwholes.

    I have the pvn release anyways, it's not like I paid for it. Did have a couple of missing textures, but meh, it's free

    Tell me the setting you used to run the game and the fps you received using those settings.

    Way too freakin' short. I mean it pretty much is the definition of 'short but sweet', but there's no way i think it's worth the £18 i paid. About 4 1/2 hours gameplay of just single player content....hmmm...
