Ships Ahoy - Left 4 Dead

Valve announces that Left 4 Dead is now showing up in retail stores worldwide, following the digitally distributed debut of the multiplayer zombie shooter earlier this week via Steam. In case the game's well-publicized $10 million marketing budget has missed you (I actually haven't seen many mainstream ads for it yet myself), here's a bit on the game: "Set in a modern day survival-horror universe, the game casts you as one of four survivors in an epic struggle against swarming hordes of zombies and terrifying mutants. The four expansive campaigns offer single player and co-operative game modes. Left 4 Dead also features a Versus mode that allows players to take control of one of four types of 'Boss Infected,' with each 'Boss' possessing a mutant ability instead of traditional firearms. In addition, Left 4 Dead offers gamers the chance to go 'behind the scenes' of the making of the game via the 'Director's Commentary' mode."

I've been on a couple servers where my friends and I want to play on Advanced, but the server's set to Expert. So we do a vote and change to Advanced. But every map change, it switches back to Expert.

I have encountered this! Very annoying, my friends and I are going along thinking everything is going a well and then realize that it is only on advanced.

I am completely digging the random things people say every once in a while. I would repeat the memorable one for me, but don't want to spoil anyone's experience.
