Looks like a simple umbra/penumbra 2 pass thing with some blurring on that flashlight shot. I like it a lot. I was starting to wonder if valve was ignoring shadows and hoping they would go away or something...

The pics do not do the shadow effects justice. You really need to see them in action. Really cool stuff.



LOL These guys rock!

Well since I don't care to buy "Orange Box" and get two games I already own, and get two more I don't care about, I just purchased Ep2. BUUUUUT, thanks to the greatness that is Steam, it wont even download saying the "Servers are too busy". GREAT, I bought a game I can't even play. Sigh.

Ok, Portal and Hl2:Ep2 seem sorta slow and boring.

On portal 19 in 2 hours. Maybe I'm a slow mofo, but it's been fun!

Wow. Amazing game. Starts off a little slower than Ep1, but it picks up pretty quickly. Lots of Atmosphere. Does Lou Gosset Jr. Still do the Vortigant voice? Sounds different. IMDB credits him as doing the voices.

EDIT: Fixed First shot

Look at the little guys.
