I'll probably pre-order it too. Of course, I work for Microsoft, so they'll hand me a copy a week or so before it hits the street anyway. (Best Buy vs Microsoft = Really? lol)

...I think I will go ahead and pre-order it. On the plus side, I'll get it at a discount, I work for Best Buy.

I probably would, but sadly Left 4 Dead was such a pitiful dissapointment, basically made me lose faith in Valve games, not that any of them were ever actually good, just the common place linear shooter with a brain dead protaganist, nothing too special.

Boycotting for two reasons:

1: I do feel a bit screwed over after the whole L4D1 thing. TF2 gets DLC out the rear, and L4D gets next to nothing, and they cost the same amount.

2: I'm in law school and do not have time anyway.

I did not say there was NO DLC, just that there is a lot less than for TF2. There has really only been two sets of dlc: The new Crash Course pack and the original lSurvivor Pack DLC which enabled survivor mode. The enabling of custom maps was just a continuation of the SDK which released with the game. Furthermore, Gabe's promises from E3 have been somewhat hollow. I mean, he said something hinting at more content in the "coming months' and the Crash Course is the first we've seen since, nearly 4 months ago. And the promised interoperability has come and gone from favor several times since his comments at E3.

 Compare that with expanded weapons assortments, earned upgrades, drops, maps, new campaigns and types and fun hats in TF2, and it's just not the same.

And keep in mind that I love ALL Valve game, L4D included, but I'm using my wallet to show how I feel. The same as I have with Ubisoft and the SHAFTING they gave PC buyers of Prince Of Persia, and denying them the DLC while giving it to consoles. This, as opposed to just moaning on some steam group.

 

And what's with your caps? Is that supposed to mean something?

Eh, I'm going to buy L4D 2 because I know its going to be a great game to play; However, I wish that Valve would come out with HL2:EP 3 already. Personally, I think it could of held off for quite longer on making another L4D game, but I am not running Valve, Gabe Newell is running the show.

You have this game with no real storyline or plot... you realize that you can change the models, keep everything else... and repackage it as a new game.

OR

 you can spend all this time creating a storyline, scenario's, new creatures, puzzles and waste alot of man ours... which one is more cost-effective and generate revenue in an ailing industry (PC Gaming).

I'd rather wait for the inevitable half-off weekend sale. I don't care how long it takes, the original L4D didn't hold my interest for very long, so I can wait.

word up. i remember buying L4D around Xmas, to kill some time during the long holiday, and a few weeks later, boom, half price.

 

i don't buy ANYTHING from Steam unless it's half price or less now.

The 10% off also applies to the 4 pack.  The L4D2 4 pack costs $149.99 normally, you get it for $134.99 which comes out to $33.75 each if you've got 3 others to split it with.  Very sweet deal.
