Left 4 Dead 2 Catch All

In recognition of our group angst at not being able to play on time, I vote that the first jerk that actually shows up in Steam as playing L4D2 gets banned from all GWJ games!

BOYCOTT!!

where's the Steam event for the release? I want to see the crazy comments, always brightens these situations for me.

Certainly for "fake" L4D2 games. The only disappointment for me is that I can't let it download/decrypt here at the office.

...and it's stupidhaiku with the first fake game of the evening.

Oh new thread! I can't say I'm surprised, but no matter how many times Valve does this I still have hope that it'll be different this time. No? Maybe it will be different next time.

Actually I was the first fake, thank you very much.

Think they blocked the comments now though.

HAHAHAHAHA-- you guys thought it would launch on time!

Gonna try some other night.

No I didn't, at all really. It was worth a shot though, got nothing to do tomorrow.

once again, they always deliver.

Maybe they should start doing practice release runs.

every f*cking time...

Something is odd with Steam... Left4dead2 is showing as the top SEVEN new releases.

Steam just restarted it's self?!

The store, New Releases tab, its showing L4D2.... 7 times. Heh.

I should really go to bed but I can't...
Also, they could at least update the event with a delay.

Not too surprised really, although seeing L4D2 there 7 times is a good laugh

Which made me laugh.

EDIT: Seven L4D2 releases? I get it. It's a puzzle, a guessing game if you will. One of the seven L4D2 releases is the real one. Guess right, you get to play. Guess wrong and you go to bed.

OK, time to bitch.

I purchased the game and preloaded it today because I loved the first game, and I didn't want to miss out on the sale price for pre-ordering it. I am currently unemployed, so I don't have a lot of money right now.

The fact that the price is still discounted, AND I can't play it really pisses me off. Maybe this makes me a dick, but if they don't raise the price to normal, I'm going to feel double dumb for buying it today (the 16th).

While we bide our time you can watch this video of a 3yr old playing L4D. She is better than most of us.

Skip to 7:20 to see her fight the tank; or rather, cover her eyes in abject fear.

I'm trying to reload my Steam account, but it's not getting past the connection to steam account part. What a shame. Not only can I not play the game about zombies, I can't play any other my other games in the meantime!

Gaaah! VALVE!

If you read just the comments ... it's too funny, I can't explayne. Or spell.

Speaking of preloading, I can't seem to do it for some reason. Anyone else have this problem?

I preloaded it fine a couple hours ago. It's probably going to be tough now with everyone spamming their servers.

Already had it preloaded the first day it came out for preloading

WTF! Not only did the parents allow the 3 year old to play L4D, but did you listen to the audio? In the background you can hear what appears to be an audio-recording of an extremely raunchy novel.

About 1,800 comments were made at Valve's official L4D2 forum from 11:59 p.m. to 12:14 a.m.

Angry people there.

this is ri-goddamn-diculous....BUT....I am still impressed with the quality of games they make over most developers out there....
