[br]You can begin to preload your copy of Left 4 Dead 2 today and be ready to play the game the moment it's released on November 17th.[br]

If you haven't pre order your copy yet, it's not too late to get the 10% discount on the game plus a Team Fortress 2 hat..A HAT, there's no deal better than this.

Thank you for notifying me, Ahmed, but I've had this preloaded since last night. :)

I love you.

I suggest everyone goes and pre-orders if they haven't.

I don't have money for it yet. How long does one have to pre-order?

Wired thing, my computer have trouble running L4D, but the L4D2 demo is just fine...

I'd assume you have up until the release day to pre-order. That is, you'll have until November 16th to pre-order, then you can play ASAP at 12 AM November 17th Valve time.

I'll need to delete some more room off the HDD. this is gunna sound noob but can I play Steam games from other than the Program Files ---> Steam folder?? I'd love to actually use my external hard drive more with Steam instead of just storing old games because I'm low on space

What would be the point of having a L4D2 trailer with L4D2?

Well a year ago we were just getting L4D so I wouldn't be too surprised if we were getting sold on L4D3...

Something tells me that they won’t be annoucing any Episode 3 information at least until a month after L4D2 release. I say this because I doubt they want to “damage” the sale of L4D2 by getting people excited about their “next” game. Never the less if it were to be the Ep3 trailer I wouldn’t be complaining!

The most interesting thing I can make out of the game files is that Dead Center only has 4 maps, like Swamp Fever and commentary will take place in The Parish.

The New Orleans level was a HUGE turnoff. The map was too bright and lively. I loved the first Left 4 Dead because of the atmosphere. The levels were dark and you felt alone (except for your 3 buddies).

That and the fact that I don't have the money for this.

100% as of 20 minutes ago. I'm ready to go!

I'm pretty excited about L4D2, for 2 reasons.

1) L4D2 is out
2) Focused Valve advertising for L4D2 ends, they will move onto...

Well...you work it out.

What if I played the demo, and felt that Valve hasn't done much to address many of the more fundamental problems with L4D? There's a pretty extensive list of changes demonstrated in the L4D2 demo, very few of which have any non-trivial impact on the gameplay.

I'll pass until it goes on sale for ~$20 or so.

So, now that L4D2 has been released -- along with an unencrypted copy of the oh-so-mysterious trailer.bik file -- I'm sure that everyone but me has watched the EP3 trailer as of now...

Are you implying that it wasn't a trailer for EP3 after all?

No.. fucking.. way.

Now that was kind of stupid.
