    1. Outrageous fun, but I’m sure ready for a DLC campaign, or any new content at all.
      I’ve played through “Dead Air” about 30 times.

    4. Valve has promised info on updates will be available very soon. For 360 as well as PC. Sit tight, we’re being accommodated!

      In the meanwhile, I suggest getting 4 xboxes system linked and sitting down with 7 of your best friends for some serious fun. We do split-screen LANs every weekend and it’s incredible. You know it’s fun when we all lug our flatscreen TV’s, XBoxes, hubs, cables, and snacks over to our buddy’s house once a week in the middle of a snowstorm.

      If anyone wants to play a campaign or versus with me, I’m on after 9pm almost every night. Gamertag is Suicyd King.

      I bought a second Xbox for the same reason.
      4 dudes having an old school game session, and not having to split one screen 4 ways? Just epic.

    6. Hells to the yes. Reminds me of the folks who would have 4 TVs set up in their basements for Halo LANs on the first-gen XBox.

      Honestly though…4 campaigns, 2 versus maps. All we got. And yet I still play this game constantly. I can’t wait for some DLC. Even on the same maps, versus is always dynamic and exciting. Getting that rib-shattering pounce with a hunter from 3 stories up, catching the straggler at the last possible moment with a smoker, or hitting RB while spewing as a boomer to turn yourself into a lawn sprinkler after dropping in between all 4 survivors. It never gets old!

    10. Amazing, but I really wish there was more of a plot – I was hoping there’d be a cinematic for every campaign like the one from the demo. Can’t wait for updates.

    11. Valve knows how to keep its fans interested in its games, unlike EA. Look at Team Fortress 2, we get updates and expansions all the time. Valve will milk L4D out for the good of the players. They watch server traffic, when it starts to die down a bit they’ll drop a bomb of an update on us!!!

    12. Your all suckers for buying what is basically a Company made zombie mod.

    13. @Casemods so do you have a free version of the game we all can get and play on valve servers? Didnt think so..
      Most games for retail sale are mods built on the same graphics engine. EA exploited the hell out of the Unreal 2 graphics engine, most of the early Medal of Honor series were Unreal, same as alot of the Star Wars games, and the 1st Call of Duty game. Dice did such an awesome job with Desert Combat mod for Battlefield 1942, they were commisioned to do BF:2, BF:2142 (even if most of the original Trauma Studios devs didnt stick around) EA has let BF2 wither and die.

    14. @Naked:

      Using a graphics engine is different than a mod. A graphics engine is what enables you to play a game in full 3d rasterized or ray traced glory. A game mod is when you either add on weapons,items, vehicles, missions or quests or in the case of Elder Scrolls new lands. You don’t destroy the core game and just use it’s graphics engine from the ground up and call it a mod. You actually modify the existing game. When you use a graphics engine from another game WITHOUT using the core gameplay structure you are creating a new game. For example Fallout3 could technically be considered an oblivion mod because you have taken all the game mechanics from oblivion and rebadged them and presented them in a new way. Where as with Gears Of War or BioShock you are using the UT3 engine but almost every single game mechanic is completely different than UT3 hence the game is not a mod but a brand new game that is using another games graphics engine. From there they’ll add on other physics engines and AI scripts and all those other juicy goodies.

      Left 4 dead doesn’t have anything out of common with halflife. All they did was take the half life SDK and create new missions and characters and left the core game mechanics present in half-life in. They didn’t take the source engine and create a whole new style of game like they did with Portal where the only thing it had in common with half-life was the black mesa and aperture science background. It is a completely different game. So in a very huge way Left 4 Dead is a half-life mod. The only reason it might not be one technically is because it is not an OEM or player made add-on that you use in conjunction with the original half-life 2 game. It is essentially the same game play only with a new story line and UI.

    15. @Naked: Valve doesn’t host the servers, people do. They might have a couple servers up but I doubt it.

      I have non-steam CS:S, full online. Been playing it for years. And I will do the same with left for dead tonight. It’s 6 gigs but I’ll leave it on a couple days and viola L4D 4Free

    16. @thelotuseater725: New UI? That’s all mods basically are. That and weapons, vehicles, skins, maps, etc.

      BF2142 was just a mod for BF2 and people still bought it because they are stupid as hell. The sam e has just happened with L4D. It gives people a sense of belonging. “hey i just bought l4d, have you played it?” etc.

      Those aren’t true gamers. Or at least not broke gamers like me muahaha

    20. I do believe the “@everyone” would cover “everyone” in the thread, that I was admitting the lack of knowledge that I thought I may have had on the topic….looking for my fat crayons to draw a picture explaining it.
