I am at work so I cannot check this but curiosity has gotten the better of me...

Is there direct IP multiplayer in either title? Meaning that I can start a game and a friend can join my PC directly? Or do I have to start a private game through that hyperlobby thing.

As for hyperlobby, is the person that starts the game running the game on thier own PC? Or is it like Blizzards servers for Diablo and D2 where the game is hosted on the server?

Any info would be appreciated.

i don't use HL and i'm only guessing here so don't take this as solid fact....

there is an option to start a multiplayer game in FB and IL2 but i think unless you have a configured LAN connection you'll need to go through HL or UBI so your friends can connect.

if you start a game it will be your PC that the game runs on - if you like your PC becomes the "server"

i think...
