It's like Christmas Eve.

With Half-Life 2: Episode 1 due to launch on Steam tomorrow, Valve's released a couple more teaser trailers to get you in the mood.

Both focus on the delectable Alyx Vance, showing her somewhat at odds with the zombie populace and getting Gordon's back respectively. Both are on Eurogamer TV now.

They join last week's teaser, also available on EGTV, and give you an idea of just how much of a part Ms. Vance is set to play in Gordon's latest trip through City 17.

As we say, the game's due out tomorrow, and available to pre-load on Steam in the meantime. Those of you who'd prefer a boxed copy will be able to pick one up on Friday - EA's distributing it in Europe on that date.

Obviously we'll have our review up there as soon as possible to coincide with the release. Early buzz is distinctly positive, so if you get the impression we're on an extended lunch break tomorrow, be sure to post horrible threads about how negligent we are.

It won't be the truth though - yours truly's in a meeting most of the day and then babysitting for the bloody editor, under strict instructions not to subject his newborn to the tortured screams of the undead. They're stifling him, you know. I bought him a headcrab toy and they refused to let him have it. Bastards.
