    That's pretty awesome; not only that they raised $3000, but because Gabe/Erik will take time from what will inevitably be a seriously busy schedule atm just to fulfill a bit of a joke... :hehe:

    News like that just makes me smile. It's great PR for Vavle (plus if the $3k is all going to charity even better).

    Hmmmm. This wouldn't have anything to do with the L4D2 release issues?

    now now, we can't be killing things with stones, that could constitute melee and that would be 18+ so can't be "released" in Australia... ;-)

    I love developers who care about their fans. All game studios should learn from them.

    This is an awesome example of PR done right.

    Following this example, I plan to boycott future episodes of The Guild unless I'm taken to see Felicia Day....

    ... what? it might work

    This is becoming BS, Valve still shouldn't have released L4D2 as a standalone game. All of these distractions lately don't change that fact..

    Wasn't a lot of the original money donated by valve workers who wanted to get rid of them for a while?

    Whats your problem? The game is basically a new game, They added so much that you couldn't install this as an add-on to L4D and still play that the original way. Just be happy valve released this sequel to game withing 5 years.
