yes killing zombies does get boring. i played co-op on l4d for about 2 hours and then shut it off, because i knew what was coming, endless co op of the same levels and then retarded dlc's that i shouldnt even have to pay for.

the idea of expansion pac's if they cost any more money. It seems like a lot a companies just want to keep their hands in your pocket forever. That's why I'll never play a MMO with a monthly fee. The fee's add up to hundreds of dollars.

You see this is the thinking I don't get.  If you mowed lawn for a living you would expect to get paid everytime you mowed that lawn.

 If you add content to a game why should the entity that created the game not get money for the content they added?  After all you only bought that game.  I swear I think companies would be better off putting out a game and then just leaving it as it is.  As long as it worked properly when they sold it to you, they really have no obligation to add anything to it.

IMO, Valve kind of put themselves between a rock and a hard place.  They charged full retail for a game that obviously had limited replayability.  Even the AI director can do much to broaden that.

Now if they charge for new content they seem a bit greedy, people will complain, but if they offer new content for free they will set a precedent, and if they charge for subsequent content, people will complain.

I would pay for new content.  But unlike the unwashed masses I believe you should pay for peoples hard work and imagination.  This content does not build itself.  Now lets not charge like its a new game ala BF2.  After all the game engine and modeling is already there.  But I'd pay 10 - 15 bucks for more content.

 I thik more people would play MMOs and the like if expansions were cheap. Fallout 3 DLC is a good example. It's about 10 dollars US, twelvish if you are Canadian like me, even though you gotta butcher your money into microsoft-useless-frakin'-points.

I don't remember exactly how many, but at the store I work, when Wrath of the Lych king was released, we had a bunch of people mad because they needed the previous expansion at about 35 bucks to run a 44 dollar expansion for a 25 dollar game at 20 bucks a month. If the expansions were cheaper, no complaints, no headaches, no-one whose Corn Flakes were pissed in.

Will the survival pack be free? The information stating itll be included inthe L4DCCE leads me to think other wise. I sincerely hope Valve is releasing it for free.

I'm guessing not free.  The impression I am getting for the most part on the various "DLC" articles is that it is the new catch phrase for "Corporate hand in your pocket".

No info on price, but Valve would be idiotic to randomly start charging on this -- let's face it -- anemic piece of content. I imagine we'll see a TF2-style pricing structure here. That is, free.

I have always said the only thing that could be more fun than killing zombies would be killing nazi zombies!!  Way to read my mind.
