The only game I'm excited for is L4D.

I am so glad we have Steam this day in age.  I had overlooked Left 4 Dead, but it wont matter because I will be able to push a button and it will magically teleport into my PC.

I've been looking forward to Left4Dead since sometime before the Orange Box came out. Well done co-op is probably my favorite multiplayer mode in any genre I can think of, and L4D looks to bring that Valve polish to the concept. Can't fucking wait.

Left 4 Dead

Just reading the Wikipedia entry shows me little ways that Survivor players can mess things up ("problems" being they fall to the Director's drones before I get to them), but Lawd does it sound meaty. Infected aggro sounds... Vaguely cute. The Tank seems designed to keep the game going more than anything, so I don't know if it'll be my favorite role, should I get an X-Box 360 or better PC. I could be an all right Smoker, I think. I'd need to work at being a funny Hunter.

If I wait several months before I buy Left 4 Dead, is it likely that I won't be able to find anyone to play with me?

If the game is good and doesn't require some kind of paid account, then just ask around. Stragglers inevitably remain after the initial predatory rush of the collective nerd herd has mashed the proverbial Funkotronians to death. I can at least say that I'll probably get access to the title the same time as you, and I have to play this one because of some geeky, instinctual draw.

This won't be released proper for a few weeks, but theres a multiplayer demo for preorderers starting November 6.

I look forward to the possibility of being sick of this game before it's released, but being a Valve title this seems unlikely.

This game is going to be the shit.

For the record, the opening cinematic came out recently, and it only further cements this into my "MUST BUY" pile.

I'm really glad they changed Zoe's model.  She looked as fucking ugly as Chell does at first.

Damn it Valve!!!  I tried to preoder it 10 times last week (as well as buy Fallout3) and they wouldn't accept any of my credit cards!!!

I wanna play the demo too!!!
:sadpanda:

Note: Saturn has complained to them.  So we're on our way to a solution.

x1000

except that the fucking matchmaking system is a load of balls right now.  it seriously automatched me to a passworded server earlier.

anyway the demo is amazing and the AI director is fantastic at surprising your ass.

however, going through just two stages and then having to stop is like getting a blowjob and then he stops and says "hang on there are too many dicks in my ass" and you're like "OH GOD DAMN IT"

also you can't beat off because your hands are tied behind your back
