Half Life 2: Aftermath = Half life 2: Episode One

 Thats right, valve have finally delivered on thier promise to make new episodic content!

Valve Software has revealed to GameSpot that Aftermath, the upcoming expansion pack to the award-winning 2004 shooter Half-Life 2, has been renamed “Half-Life 2: Episode One.” When asked whether the name change is indicative of a change in direction for the Half-Life 2 franchise, Valve marketing director Doug Lombardi replied, “episodic.” When asked the follow-up question of whether the new name meant that beginning of a regular flow of content, Lombardi replied, “yes.”

This is all well and good, as long as they are a reasonable price…and come fairly regularly and on time. Only time will tell if this is good or not.
