Yepyep.
In the meantime, TF2 is only $2.50!
For the weekend, at least.

Actually TF2 is only $2.50 til like 2:00 PDT today...which I think already passed.

Unless Destructoid lied to me...but they almost never do that...almost...

I trust Jim Sterling, so let's just say he didn't lie. Also I already got the Orange Box so I don't really need TF2. What they should have done is make Left 4 Dead 1 $2.50, because I woulda bought that.

I sucked at L4D. When playing online, I am what you elite call a "noob." Nevertheless, I enjoy the game immensely and will try and play it when I get the chance.

When I played the free demo for a week I was at an average level. It really just takes memorizing the maps and the places a Tank or Witch could be.

Heh, I haven't sunk cash into it yet. Is the demo an online multiplayer demo or single player?

Have you tried using a chain saw? I look forward to that the most. :P

Nah, the demo only has...frying pan, machete, guitar...

I don't remember there being weapons like that in the prequel?!

Shadz
10-30-2009, 08:52 AM
There wasn't. Melee weapons was a huge addition.

Okay screw it, I just pre-ordered on steam. :P

Downloading demo now... looks like this might take a while. But I'm soooo excited. This and Modern Warfare 2 :P

Couldn't someone just upload the Demo?

DeltaBurnt
10-31-2009, 04:17 PM
No because you need to run it through Steam. That's like saying "Can't someone just upload Left 4 Dead?".

PharaohsVizier
10-31-2009, 04:24 PM
Damn my connection, I'm only at 8% :(

It's going to suck when the real full sized game comes...

Shadz
10-31-2009, 07:37 PM
Doesn't matter. And MW2 will be horribad. No ded. servers, no custom mods, no custom maps...

PharaohsVizier
10-31-2009, 08:20 PM
Finally got some L4D2 action, pretty awesome. The blood just spills when you use a machete :blackeye:

Quite a few guns too, pretty good demo. :)

--------------

MW2 is gonna rock period. It doesn't need dedicated servers or custom mods and maps. I'm getting it for PS3, so I suppose I never expected it to get custom stuff.

Shadz
11-01-2009, 12:21 AM
Yeah, L4D2 demo is epic, love just cutting zombies in half with a machete, or shooting half their body off with a combat shotgun. Nothing beats the sniper rifle though, that thing is a beast.

PharaohsVizier
11-01-2009, 12:49 AM
Is it just me or is the machete sort of overpowered?

I wonder what the chainsaw will be like then o.o

Wait machete was the wrong word, I mean melee weapons in general. Machete just looks so awesome that it came to mind first XD

Hah, wow that's pretty epic!

Shadz
11-01-2009, 01:39 AM
Not really....I mean, try meleeing a flying hunter with a machete...its hard to do. Same with alot of the other weapons, I actually managed to whack a tank to death with a guitar, but it was while he killed a friend. Same with a charger, beaten to death with a frying pan. But it requires timing, and you can get swarmed...

How many people here pre ordered the game?

Only 3 days left till release. I'm SUPER excited. :)

Same. im practically fapping. For me, its released 4pm Tuesday arvo.

11-14-2009, 08:22 AM
I just tried it today.

To be honest, I'm not too sure what's different, since I'm not a hardcore L4D fan. So far, the obvious changes: a new cast, the addition of melee weapons, and the syringe. I've also noticed some new zombies like the charger, and the jockey.

Anything else?

DeltaBurnt
11-14-2009, 12:54 PM
Ehh I'm not too excited, it's just L4D with melee and new zombies.

Both of you two, GTFO.

I've played well over 250 hours of Left 4 Dead and am simply amazed by Left 4 Dead 2. The AI director is an evil bastard, having the ability to change the weather (and visibility) as well as being able to dynamically path the map. E.g. Players doing well will have a longer and more difficult path, that players suffering. Not only this, but the dismemberment is wonderful.

I'm not saying that I'm joining the old boycott groups saying that it should be DLC. All I was saying is that I didn't see much to have an orgasm about in the demo. I honestly would love to get my hands on the full game.

11-15-2009, 04:52 PM
Heh, well to be completely honest, I had Left 4 Dead running on a private server, so I had to deal with a lot of lag. I'm excited more than anything that I'm getting the real deal and getting to use it on steam. L4D2 demo runs pretty smooth, no lag and stuff. :)

If you were an avid gamer or a fan, you would quickly recognise the numerous differences...

I don't know if I'm happy with the release date. It is 2 days before the day I have 3 midterms... It's probably going to single handedly demolish my Economics grade. XD

I finished school (forever) on....4th november, So i have 3 months of NOTHING to play it. I love life right now...Not only this, but yeah, can't wait for it. My school grades got ruined by HoN and Resident Evil 5.

Funnily enough, L4D2 comes out 364.25 days AFTER the original release.

Also - 26.5 hours

Sorry I'm not as much of a graphics revolved gun loving wannabe gamer as you.

I've played L4D and I have it and I'm a huge fan of Valve's work. All I'm saying is that there's melee weapons, new characters, new zombies, and that's all there's really to enjoy in the demo. That in no way says I'm saying the whole game will be bad.

I will have to agree with Delta, with the possible exception of the "wannabe" remark.

L4D was good, and L4D2 is probably even better. I've noticed the obvious differences, but perhaps, not the subtle ones. I'm happy you like it so much, but I think telling us to GTFO is a bit much.

Shadz
11-16-2009, 02:28 AM
I have my doubts, I see no rules about a person not being able to state their opinion. And my opinion is, if you don't notice the difference or aren't hyped about it, GTFO. It also amazes me as to how you 2 can't depict sarcasm or humor from a serious comment. In all honesty, how can 'GTFO' even be slightly regarded as a serious comment. Its essentially just 4 letters stuck to together as an abbreviation, no different from 'lol' or 'stfu'. Its just a comment left by trolls. You (both) seem to be unable to actually understand the concept of sarcasm...

As for the statement about new characters, there are rumors of the old survivors in the new game, but there are obvious differences, the subtle that may have gone un-noticed include those such as the AI Director 2.0, who is able to change the map, weather and other factors (given weather was not altered in the demo, but alternate pathing certainly was). As for enjoying everything in the demo, and correct me if I'm wrong, but it appears as if you saying everything you need is there in the demo? If not, then its phrased badly or possibly misread, regardless of that, in the full game, there will be an extra difficulty (Realism), Scavenge, Survival and Versus. There is MUCH more potential in terms of gameplay and replayability.

benjaminlibl
11-16-2009, 02:58 AM
No, you're allowed to state your opinion. It just didn't sound like an opinion. Anyways, I'm surprised by you, Shadz. You obviously have been around forums a lot, so you should know by now that sarcasm, unless very obvious or clearly stated doesn't work well online.

It wasn't funny, by the way.

AI Director 2.0 seems very cool.
