I saw a USP in the trailer.

Also, maybe it'll get boring in 2 days instead of 1.

At first I saw the trailer and was like, "Sweet! New Left 4 Dead I loved the last one!" But then I thought, "Why can't it just be more download content like GTA4?"

My exact thoughts aswell. Seems like UT04 -> UT3 to me, a graphical update with some new maps.

So, what the hell happened with HL2 Ep3? D:

Just because Valve announced another game doesn't mean they stopped working on their other games. Especially HL2EP3. Large companies usually have several dev teams, so they're working on HL2EP3, L4D2 (that doesn't even sound right in my mind) and prrobably Portal 2 simultaneously.

Nah I didn't like L4D in the first place, it got boring after the beta for me. I still bought it for some reason...Oh Because i'm retarded.

Valve's staff at a roundtablemeeting:

"Hey, lets simply re-release our previous half-finished game for another 50 bucks while adding ridiculously uncreative meeleweapons like an axe or chainsaws and some recycled HL2 sounds and shotgun-models, carried by some totally stereotype crude characters!"

"Cool, but how do you plan the persuasive advertising?"

"It has chainsaws and 2.0 written on it!"

"Fantastic, lets do it!"




Screw you, Valve, you really fucked up big time!

Still hoping the whole project is:

I didn't even buy it, somebody gifted me it.

I enjoyed L4D, tho, it was new + creative, requiring people to work together..in theory. *glare @ Wesker* It plays decently, rarely laggy or broken, well balanced. L4D2 is, literally, more of the same. Except now there's a fat black guy with a chainsaw... (While we're on that topic, did anybody look at the teaser + say "black Heavy Weapons Guy with a chainsaw"?). And they're still using that goddamn Anger Core snarl from Portal.

/rage

also lol @ Red Slug.

That fat black guy remind anyone of Michael Clark Duncan from The Green Mile?
 At least in the trailer he looked like him. ;/

I bet it turns out to just be a free DLC or something, this doesn't seem like valve at all.

That would be the perfect description for it. Those weapons are way too used in all zombie games,and once again, the game became more for cassual gamers, just like happened with tfc and tf2
