    im thinking this could either be a really good think or another way to get people's money...

    It might either be like a $10 DLC/and packaged with newer copies of L4D or it could be what everyone suspects it to be a $39 mod to the game.

    and the creators of counter-strike joined valve software, turtle rock also joined valve i believe and made CS:CZ along with their AI.

    Everything a company does is a way to get people's money lol. Even if this was free, it would be an incentive for people to buy the first one.

    You all have to admit, L4D is addictive as hell and the zombie physics are nuts. I was under some pipes the other day and noticed the zombies don't glitch when they have to crouch, they actually crawl at you. It's pretty creepy.

    Anyways, with as many hours as I've already put into that game, I have no problem paying for a second version. What I DO want though is for it to just be a standalone upgrade to what you have, allowing you to open one copy of the game to get everything from the second as well as the first.

    Oh and does anyone else notice the massive performance improvement when you disable multicore rendering and set the exe's affinity to 1?

    Oh I'm for sure getting it! I just hope it's not full price. If it is, I'll pay it anyway, L4D is my favorite co-op game :D

    well what i meant when i said that was they could just exploit the franchise to just get another $50 out of people, even though the game itself is just new textures (as we know right now).

    New weapons, zombies, boss zombies and maps aren't just new textures. I'd gladly pay 50$ for something with 100% more content!

    Lol, lose the anger and go be a perfectionist game designer. You cannot rush the greatest game of all time.

    I can understand what your saying, the original Half life was released about 5 years ago, and its been about 2 years since EP2, yet they manage to release L4D and announce L4D2 in the space of about 12 months.

    I dont want them to rush it, but come one! :D

    Left 4 Dead was a waste of my money, so I won't be buying this one.

    Let me guess, you're a CS player when you're not posting BS on Internet forums? Half-Life was the game that made Valve; the game that revolutionized first-person shooter development, the first game that combined shooting with thinking.

    Counter-Strike, in comparison, has no credit to its name apart from the fact that it was the first commercially successful mod.

    Yeah, it's been almost two whole f**king years since Episode 2 and still nothing. I understand that good game development takes time, but this is the second Left 4 Dead game they're releasing within a year.

    Episode 3 had better be the equivalent of the Second Coming or a lot of gamers - myself included - are going to be (a) very disappointed and (b) very pissed off.

    Left 4 Dead and Half-Life and made by two separate teams. L4D is mainly comprised of the CSS dudes and Turtle Rock for the most part.

    I loved the first one because it was really long! I don't see games today that had that many hours of gameplay. Not to mention an awesome storyline with plenty of action, suspense and puzzles.:cool:

    I will gift it only if you promise to play the whole game and LOVE IT!:D

    L4D was kinda a waste of my money. After I played through all the levels 5 times it got VERY boring and repetitive, I havent played since last year. I just got Killing Floor and that game is AWESOME!

    Killing Floor is what would happen if they mixed Counter Strike and L4D together with Resident Evil!

    I think the L4D was never meant to be a single player shooter, but more for multi-player co-op games. If this was true then I don't think it was worth $50. The good news is it's cheaper now.:)

    I wouldn't be surprised if Valve released the sequel at a heavy discount for people who already own L4D on Steam. Xbox users will get appropriately raped, though, I would guess.

    well just to reiterate some of what has already been said.....i do wish this was more DLC for the original game rather then an all new game we have to pay for. i mean L4D 2 sounds good maybe after two or three years for an online game like this....but 1 year after release of the original w/o almost any new DLC for it seems like a money grab

    which is fine....i just don't want to pay more for a game i already have, basically. so it better be as big as they are making it sound. and it better be GOOD

    and yes, if it is i will most likely have it on pre-order :banghead:
