I am a fan of Left 4 Dead, but I had to smirk when their weekend deal they just had listed the game for 24.99 and right underneath that gave you the option to buy four copies for 149.99, only 50 dollars more than four individual copies.

What a bargain!

Awesome. They took the Priestess of the Moon's attack from dota.

No doubt Icefrog borrowed it from somewhere else but that is where I know it from.

I am kind of surprised that subtlety didn't get any love, but combat was hurting pretty bad.

I am betting that 20 dollars is right for this considering that they are calling it a pack, as in expansion pack.

I am only paying for it if they put in some ability to filter non vanilla servers.

People are already coming out with tweaks to the servers that are completely off-putting. I cannot imagine how bad it will be once the SDK comes out.

Gratz to the Warriors. Tears of sadness for the Druids.

I looked over the druid changes and saw nothing that I thought worth crying over. What specifically are you referring to?

Oh man I am so psyched for this. I just hope valve finally implements a filter to be able to avoid customized servers. It was irritating to have to deal with when I played TF2 a lot, it is irritating in Left4Dead.

Nothing had ruined L4D games faster for me than to get onto a server that has music playing over the game that cannot be turned off.

Which is why it will probably be listed in the top 10 they have yet to release.

I hate cheesing in the one entrance rooms. Not only does it feel like it is breaking the spirit of the game, it can also be dangerous.

No pipe bombs in the group due to an extreme paucity of grenade drops, we huddled in a bathroom and waited out the zombie waves. We got slimed and trapped in the bathroom just as they were tapering off- and then the tank was blocking our only exit, cracking his ridiculously big knuckles.

Natascha is devastating against scouts. Against scouts as they currently exist, anyways.

Sounds like they are trying to legislate gaming back into the stereotype they originally formed of it- something to grow out of.

Bring back the escort gameplay to TF Valve! That was so much fun in TFC.

RTCW had the best fire effects for the flamethrower I have seen in a fps.

Haynes' passion for "waste not want not" extends to animals that have been cast out, and more frequently, abandoned because of a dire economic situation.

I was sure he was going to go the barbecue route.

I like Team Fortress 2 but I must admit, I liked team fortress classic more.

If I change my tauren male to a female will I still have dudeparts under the dress? What I am trying to discern here is whether I should be role playing pre or post op.

If you've only played the demo, then you really have no idea what you're talking about. The full game is very different.

I am going to have to take issue with this statement.

I have purchased this game for the pc, enjoy it quite a lot and have a small group of people I run through a co-op movie on expert with every couple of days or so. I also enjoy versus quite a bit when the people don't leave.

As of now, the majority of the game is co-op and basically the demo writ large. I enjoyed the demo, I enjoy the game.

As for the versus though, valve really needs to come up with some way to compel people not to play for 5 minutes or until they stop being infected and then leave, whichever comes first. I have had the majority of my versus games go south for precisely this reason. Someone plays the infected through a round, leaves and then no doubt finds another server to repeat the process on. If you press on and try to play through all the temporary people who shuffle through the game, you get to a point when no more show up.

With less infected popping up and the ai controlled survivors keeping up well it becomes less than fun for the infected since they are much less able to wreak havoc and arguably less fun for the survivors, as it suddenly stopped being nearly as challenging as it was with four infected.

If Valve can solve this sociological problem then I could be happy playing this game for a very, very long time.

Some sort of rating system that kept track of how you do and paired you up against people who are around your level would be nice. Oh, and put all the people who only stay for 5 minutes in games with each other.

I don't think the random witches are all that game breaking. I am used to playing on the more difficult co-op settings and so when I come across them in versus they feel like paper tigers.

If the game were scripted as far as where weapons were located as well as the witch spawns, it would in favor of the people who played the infected the first round. They would know the weapon spawns and go right for them, as well as stock up on molotovs for the tank they knew would be spawning. They could throw down the fire right where he popped, when he popped and book it. He wouldn't have a chance.

It would, however, be nice if the director noticed the scores and threw the occasional extra witch at the people who were winning, or even hid or withheld the random weapons you come across.
