I wish they'd give us actual numbers :C

Obvious hypocrites are fail.

#1 - Left 4 Dead 2.

Pandamobile5172d ago (Edited 5172d ago )

Do you even know what hypocrite means?

They opened up L4D2 pre-orders this week, so yeah, there's going to be a lot of people ordering it.

"Hypocrite - a person who acts in contradiction to his or her stated beliefs or feelings."

I'm sort of wondering if you even know what I'm referring to.

I'm deciding if I should get this or not, as well. Loved the first one. I own it on both 360 and PC. The problem, is that I don't know what platform to get it for, first. With the Xbox 360, I have achievements and a pretty well structured community to play with. On the other hand, PC has the best controls, mod support, better performance, etc., but I only have like 2 friends who use Steam regularly, which would defeat the purpose of playing L4D2 on it.

Pandamobile5172d ago

Oh woops, misread your comment.

And L4D's fanbase is a lot more than the 43,000 "boycotters"

Arnon5172d ago

lol... silly boycotters.

evrfighter5172d ago

i was boycotter #200 something. Just waiting to see what they're gonna do about split communities as they stated themselves before I decide on a l4d2 purchase. Don't get me wrong I love me my Valve and Steam.

OFP2, Borderlands, MW2 and pc gamers are gettin a real nba2k this year (finally) which I'll probably play online for awhile means I won't miss L4D2 until it gets its steam sale.

They sold me a bunk copy of Bioshock and they never fixed the problem for me. Screw them.

Arnon5172d ago

There's a reason why it's digital download. You delete the local content and redownload it...

Pandamobile5172d ago

So, Bioshock not working on your computer is Valve's fault for selling it to you, rather than 2K, the company that can actually patch the game?

Raf1k15172d ago

I bought the Aion collector's edition and it gave me the North American version which for some reason was in Korean even when it was set to English :S.

Had to then redownload the normal version with the NCSoft Launcher.


Left 4 Dead Writer Explains The Drawbacks Of Releasing Games In Early Access

He wants to launch all his projects initially through close beta.


Valve Made Left 4 Dead 2 Because The First Game Was A Broken Mess

Left 4 Dead lead Chet Faliszek describes the original Left 4 Dead game as "such a broken thing that nobody wanted to touch it."

And then couldn't be arsed to make a third game.

If they can add a lot more stuff to a 2nd game in just 1 year why didn't they make a third game a few years later with tons of stuff extra? Because that shows they could've.

I know Source 2 was kind of broken and was a reason they cancelled L4D3 but it seems wasteful to just toss it away.

Don't know what Valve were thinking.. it's like nobody wanted to fix the issues to get going. They certainly aren't the Valve of 2004 that released fun games with pretty cutting edge graphics.

Valve is allergic to number 3 it seems. It would be easier for them to release a Left 4 Dead 2.5 enhanced version instead of releasing a game with "3" slapped on its title.

rakentaja4d ago

They stopped making games a long time ago. Steam brings in so much money that it's really not worth the effort. Nowadays, people only look for faults in games, and spend more time whining on Twitter/X than playing the game anyway. Valve says a big fat no-no.

anast5d ago

Value is the Blockbuster of video games. They have no need to invest in deving a game, when they can make handfuls of cash renting them.

-Foxtrot7d ago

What are they talking about? Seemed pretty alright to me at launch it just wasn't supported the way Valve promised us

They should have just worked on a revamp / massive update to the game but they didn't they jumped straight to a sequel with brand new characters despite having some sort, if small, story about where the original survivors were heading.

I didn't care for the direction they took the sequel, the original games tone and atmosphere was missing in the second game and is still unmatched. Daytime levels, more whackiness, melee weapons where you could attack a Tank with a frying pan...just wasn't the same to be honest and the new survivors just didn't hold up the originals.

Here's my speculation. I think they did a sequel because they didn't want to update a game co-developed by Turtle Rock, they wanted the franchise to be known as a Valve game only and knew if they updated the first one Turtle Rocks name would still linger on it.

shaenoide5d ago

I want broken games like L4D all day long...

GhostScholar5d ago

Well the first game was by far the best
