That would be annoying, and IMO is why the episodic model doesn't work. Or at least, it will never work for a company like valve.
Personally I am getting it mainly for TF2, as I really liked TF and TFC. Portal looks fun as well, but I don't care much about EP2. I'll probably play it just because I have it, but I mostly lost interest in HL2. Valves implementation of "episodic gaming" really screwed that franchise up.
