Left 4 Dead 2 Release Times Clarified and Demo Patched

Steam News has word of a new update for the Left 4 Dead 2 demo that's available the next time you log in to Steam, and a separate announcement says the Steam client has been updated with additional Left 4 Dead 2 support. There's also an update on the Left 4 Dead Blog clarifying exactly when the game will be available next week based on "an ongoing debate in the office and online as to whether '12 AM' means noon or midnight (for the record the answer is midnight). Word is:
When L4D2 will go live:

     • Tuesday, November 17th, 12:00 AM (midnight) Eastern Standard Time
     • Monday, November 16th, 9:00 PM Pacific Standard Time
     • Monday, November 16th, 10:00 PM Mountain Standard Time
     • Monday, November 16th, 11:00 PM Central Standard Time
     • Tuesday, November 17th, 12:00 AM (midnight) Eastern Standard Time
     • Tuesday, November 17th, 5:00 AM Greenwich Mean Time
     • Tuesday, November 17th, 8:00 AM Moscow Time
     • Tuesday, November 17th, 2:00 PM Japan Standard Time

Also, if you were interested in learning a bit more about the Survivors you'll be playing as this Tuesday(ish), check out our Survivor pages for Nick, Ellis, Coach and Rochelle with character, weapon and item details.

Still playing GH3, GH5, RB, and RB2 (haven't even cracked the seal on Hand Hero yet).

Hand Hero sounds a little dirty, Bats. You been shopping at the adult stores again?

I will be at work.....oh well....I will get to play for 10 days in a row (unless Assassin's Creed 2, Borderlands, Dragon Age, or any other new games get in the way) on my days off to burn up my Holiday time that is "use it or lose it".

Still playing GH3, GH5, RB, and RB2 (haven't even cracked the seal on Hand Hero yet). Just touched the tip of the iceberg on those recently. Hands get too tired to play more than 2-3 hours at a time though. Sucks getting old.

Just hope majority of bugs/issues are worked out of L4D2, maybe that 2 day lag of me working will have some updates thrown in.

What the fuck? How in the goddamned motherfucking hell could there possibly be any debate as to what 12AM means?

I can believe droves of idiots on the internet not knowing the difference between AM and PM, but "in the office?" Maybe by that they mean "we are busy laughing our asses off at how incredibly stupid you people are." >_>

classic off by one error

12am isn't pm when it comes after 11pm because 12 isn't actually 12 at all, it is a simplification of 0 resulting from the construction of the 12 hour clock based on the 24 hour clock as we know it, do you understand

the time spent on 12 oclock is in fact the time spent going from zero to one

"I have more fun watching the commercials for this game than I do playing the demo... I want that game!"

I feel the same way, except I'm happy sticking with the commercials. I spent my money on 3 copies of L4D. Think I'll save my money this time around. My friends an I lost interest in less than 2 months, and didn't get the support or dlc promised, but we've gotten tons more in 5 months with killing floor for a fraction of the price. I might check it out in a month or two when it's half price.

Maybe on easy mode, but in the demo its certainly not 1 shot, unless he's talking about the melee weapons.

Edit:
One of the character pages talks about the magnum 8 shot pistol being a 1 shot on commons WHEN incapacitated. Because I've used that gun and it was kinda crap (didn't seem much more powerful than the normal pistol), but I never tried it when incapped.

Zephalephelah:
You know there's a new realism mode where you need to get headshots?

"kill zombies with just 1 shot" What!? is that legit? Is this all weapons excluding pistols? I don't know the the details of L4D2 because I did a media blackout on the game to be surprised. Shit if this is true I'm pissed now, this is game of the year for me:( Until AvP or Lost Planet 2 which ever is out first.

Anyone that thinks 12am is noon needs to go back to kindergarten and learn how to tell time.

And who let Zeph out of the rubber room?

This should be the official time for ALL STEAM releases!

Seriously. I can't wait until retail is completely worthless to PC gaming so Steam can finally start releasing games at 12 all the time. Only retail agreements prevent this.

This game is worthless. It's more like an expansion than anything else. I see no real step in technology. Just more of the same. Also, it's ridiculous that you can kill zombies with just 1 shot... I mean unless it's a headshot.

It's all good, he's entitled to his opinion. I for one DO get what's fun about the game.

I just want to wait for a sale of some sort.
