Valve showed Half-Life 2 and Counter-Strike: Source at this years G-Phoria Gaming Awards and of course several sites staff members that were present there wrote some great hands-on impressions of them.

First off, IGN wrote a nice article on Half-Life 2. The demo that was shown was the same as at the E3 of this year, but Doug Lombardi did share some more information about City 17:

This was especially highlighted in the town square area, which was ringed by cameras observing the citizens of the city as they walked through security checkpoints. I tried to approach one nameless guy sitting on a bench and was pushed away by one of the soldiers. Getting a sense that I shouldn't be near that particular individual, I figured I might want to try to follow some of the people entering the checkpoints. As they approached the force fields blocking off the exits of the square, they raised their hands and a light flashed green before they passed through the shimmering wall.

The full article can be found HERE at IGN.

Next up, 1UP wrote a great hands-on article about Counter-Strike: Source:

Regardless of how different the Source version is, we found it easy to recreate a few classic Counter-Strike style moments while playing. When we were hunting down one terrorist and he hid behind a crate, thinking he was too far away to be seen, we got him with a simple zoomed-in head shot. Later, when we were spotted, we jumped backwards into a darkened alley as our opponent ran by, which allowed us to pop out for an attack from behind. These are the same kind of tactics that work in any game of this nature, but few do it as effectively and realistically as Counter-Strike.

Read the rest HERE at 1UP.

.. And last but not least GameSpot also put online a article about Counter-Strike: Source:

One of the biggest draws at G4's G-Phoria this weekend was Valve's Counter-Strike: Source--a game that ironically seemed to overshadow the attention garnered by the company's own Half-Life 2, which was running on just a single demo station. Valve had a LAN set up so eager attendees could try out this new version of Counter-Strike, and a single map--the remade version of de_dust--was available. The level looked strikingly better than the original, but it still featured the same basic structure (trust us, we've played a lot of dust). Though GameSpot reported on this build of Counter-Strike: Source just recently, we're longtime fans of the original game and couldn't resist trying out the new version to form our own impressions.

The full article can be found HERE at GameSpot.
