it's gone from giving the general public the bird to giving the public a thumbs-up...

I think I liked the middle-finger better.

RKRigney4118d ago

Heh yeah their logo definitely isn't as good but their stance is at least logical. The message is "just wait and see. This is a great bunch of game designers. Lets give them the benefit of the doubt, here."

Perjoss4118d ago

the idiots that start these boycotts dont realize that they are actually giving away free hype and publicity to the game they are hating on.

ThanatosDMC4117d ago

I bet valve people started this... or a bunch of ignorant 12 yr old kids that dont understand why people are pissed. They must be bored of L4D all ready... i mean, 4 campaigns and all.

I'm not a supporter for rip off! L4D is as short a game as it can get was promised to have more contents yet they came with L4D2 already? if L4D2 is going to use a new engine, yeah maybe that's ok but it will be the same fvcking game using the same fvcking ancient engine!! I'm no supporter for scamcom and I'm no supporter for scamvalve either! who ever support these scam business is STUPID! at least show some dignity as a CONSUMER not bow to every single fvcking scam just because you're a FAN!

The Left 4 Dead 2 Boycott is a group of individuals who have pledged to boycott Valve's upcoming release of Left 4 Dead 2 on November 17th, 2009. We have assembled a manifesto outlining the basic concensus of many members of our community. (Note: this manifesto is a new version, which we have recently posted to keep our manifesto in line with the middle ground of our members. This is the correct group for the boycott)

-Valve is a company with financial needs and cannot be expected to survive without the release of new games.
-Judgment cannot be passed on the quality of Left 4 Dead 2 until its release.
-Left 4 Dead was, and is, a quality game which deserves the praise of the entire gaming community.

-To holding Valve to its promise of free, continual updates to Left 4 Dead in order to build and sustain the community.
-To keeping the Left 4 Dead community together in order to improve the quality of online gaming.
-To supporting the model of continual updates Valve has set forth with its staple products like Team Fortress 2.

-The release of Left 4 Dead 2 as a stand-alone sequel will split the communities and decrease the quality of multiplayer gaming.
-The announced content of Left 4 Dead 2 does not warrant a stand-alone, full-priced sequel and should instead become updates (free or otherwise) for Left 4 Dead.
-Left 4 Dead has not yet received the support and content which Valve has repeatedly stated will be delivered.
-The release of Left 4 Dead 2 will make Left 4 Dead an obsolete purchase and inferior piece of software after only one year since release.

-That Valve honor its commitment to release ongoing periodic content for Left 4 Dead.
-That Left 4 Dead 2 not be released as a stand-alone, full-priced sequel but as either a free update to Left 4 Dead or an expansion with full compatibility with basic Left 4 Dead owners.
-That Left 4 Dead owners be given discounts for Left 4 Dead 2, should it be released as premium content.

Therefore, we - the members of this Left 4 Dead 2 Boycott - promise to abstain from the purchase of Left 4 Dead 2 until our requests are addressed.

Boycotting a game is just stupid imo. I've played left 4 dead 2. It was fun.

RKRigney4118d ago

I agree, Cain. I got dozens of hours of great fun from the first game, so I'm more than happy to pay for more. I don't DESERVE free content: I'm happy they're just making more of an awesome game. And it'll be even better this time, as well!

caladbolg7774117d ago (Edited 4117d ago )

If you purchased a game where the developers promise future updates but that promised content is never released, then by all means, you have every right to feel cheated, every right to complain, and every right to boycott that developer's products.

Many of those 30,000 individuals involved in the L4D2 boycott are there for well-grounded reasons. It's obvious that you haven't read their manifesto. Maybe you should check out their steam group? They are hardly a group of unappreciative whiners.

Unicron4118d ago

I like how you can only be a "real fan" if you agree with everything a company does.


RKRigney4118d ago

The definition of a fan, according to

Fan:  /fæn/ Show Spelled Pronunciation [fan] Show IPA
an enthusiastic devotee, follower, or admirer of a sport, pastime, celebrity, etc.: a baseball fan; a great fan of Charlie Chaplin.
1885–90, Americanism; short for fanatic

supporter, enthusiast, partisan, booster, addict.

The guys giving Valve hell after one trailer and a promise that they'd still support Left 4 Dead 1 FOR FREE are in no way, shape, or form fans.

thebudgetgamer4118d ago

we can be friends, but if i ever do something you dont agree with. i will cut you off, and call you a retard.


UnwanteDreamz4118d ago (Edited 4118d ago )

"enthusiastic devotee, follower,"?

I don't know a single intelligent person who would want to be described in that way.

You can admire something and disagree with it at the same time but you would have to be older than 12 to realize this fact.

thebudgetgamer4118d ago

so if youre a fan of someone and they pee in yor cereal will you still be a fan?


RKRigney4118d ago

Right, Budgetgamer, because not wanting to give away a game they worked on for a year is exactly like peeing in my cereal.

UnwanteDreamz4118d ago

LMAO maybe not but trying to shout down another consumer who it just making their voice heard helps us how?

thebudgetgamer4118d ago (Edited 4118d ago )

the point of the question was how much would you let somone shi on you before you say enough. im talking outside of valve to you. whats your limit?


caladbolg7774117d ago

Budget, just ignore this guy. Trolls like this are beyond recovery.
