Those pieces with the cars, indicating that the street above the facility has collapsed, are really nifty.

It could also just be from the parking lot above it you see at the end of Portal...
I cant help but notice what looks like soft-edged realtime shadows the seem to be using in the screenshot used on the frontpage...
Maybe they finally switched lighting model for source on Portal 2 and ep3?

Going off some of the shots from Gameinformer, they've gone with a much better dynamic lighting model. Whether it'll replace or supplement the pre-baked lighting model they use now remains to be seen.

Can't wait to play this. I just got Portal 1 two days ago, and I already want the second one.

This is the most life-like piece of artwork on Source technology I have ever seen!
I do hope such cutting-edge innovation will be available both in OpenGL and Dirext3D in the game.

TBH I wasn't all that interested in Portal 1 (at the time I bought OB it was for Episode 2), but I've gotten more into it and I like what I've seen from Portal 2, here. Looks great.
