I have a L4D2 Demo server live, London. If anyone wants to join in, sure thing! Just got to wait 2 hours and 16 mins! The demo is pretty good apparently, the new infected etc. are great.
Regarding the L4D/L4D2 situation, I disagree entirely. Sure, L4D could have been better but it was most definitely a full game. I played well over 100 hours of it and I base value on enjoyment, price and time had from it. I paid £25 for L4D, if I can get 25 hours for £25 that's a brilliant deal, there are a huge amount of shit games right now that cost >£30 and play for about 3 hours, Call of duty 4/5 being perfect examples.
A company has to make money, they can't spend an entire year building a brand new game only to release it as free downloadable content because a small group of whiney gamers can't handle a couple of extra £. The entire L4D2 boycott was ridiculous and I'm glad the people who ran it realised it and ended it.
First of all, LOL you think COD4 only has 3 hours of gameplay. I'm guessing you havn't played it.
I'm by no means boycotting L4D2, but I must just point out a few things which have really pissed me off about L4D. First of all, PC users get it cheaper and get all DLC for free. This to me is utter bullshit. Console users have to pay all the bills and PC users get a free ride, I don't see how that's fair in the slightest. I'm of course reffering to this Crash Course DLC, which is very shit, but costs Xbox users a few quid. Bullshit.
I'd also like to point out that due to PC users hacking the game, a lot of dev time is spent fixing things which only affect the PC version, and yet they still pay less...
L4D2, as far as I can see, is a major inprovement on the first, so it's by no means not worth the cash, the problem I have with it is the fact that PC users will continue to freeload off Xbox users. Bottom line is, it makes me angry when we have to pay for the DLC and PC users get it free, and if I buy L4D2 then I'm going to feel that anger again whether I like it or not, and believe it or not, I don't like being angry.
So that's the only reason I'd think twice before buying it
