HL2 started to become more of "Hey look what our engine can do" than the story, but I still enjoyed playing it.

I don't think thats the case at all... heck if anything I think the story has become stronger then it was from the start. I think HL2:EP1 has a far better story then the original HL2.

I'm torn on if I should get EP2 on the PC via steam or on the 360.

I paid $8 for it only two weeks after it came out. The retail stores put new releases on sale often, especially when there is an upcoming holiday. You don't ever get this on steam.

I think I'm gonna go with the black box, ep 1 and 2 since I don't have them on PC yet. Unless the PS3 version has a good amount of extras I don't have a need for it.
