    Anyone know what time it'll be released for PC? Apparently it's already out on the 360 Marketplace.

    I'm looking forward to this now; any new L4D is a good thing. :D

    Versus gets pretty boring without some friends to play it with, I'd be up for some Co-op goodness once I get my eye in again - I haven't really played L4D in a couple of months.

    If like most updates, about 10pm tonight (GMT) of which then every man and his dog will be downloading it, however trying to find an updated, and empty server will be the tricky part.

    Looking forward to it none the less, just wish they would release the updates earlier in the day to give us Brits a chance to get downloaded, and servers restarted after updates etc, instead of leaving it to the very last minute late at night!

    Ive VNC hooked up to home pc, checking steam every 30-45mins for updates to hopefully be prepaird for when I return home late this evening.

    Damn. I downloaded it dead on release at full speed on my 10mb cable. Sorry it's slowed down (wasn't my fault I hope).

    Not a very entertaining campaign, doesn't tie into DT at all, where the hell does the van go in DT?

    The wall messages were awesome though, and I liked how they paid tribute to dawn of the dead.

    Other than that, incredibly short & easy campaign, bots are retarded as hell as usual though.

    The new dialogue lines are entertaining

    Yeah, I actually found the finale pretty easy, but got into some trouble earlier on when a Tank incapacitated all 3 of my teammates with a single car throw :(

    The AI does seem even more retarded than normal though...I had trouble even getting them to follow me from the start of the campaign, and it took all 3 of them about 5 seconds to get a Hunter off me even though they were right next to me :duh:

    Had that just happen to me at the finale. They did eventually save me though. Unlike another time when they just watched the hunter kill me :eyebrow:

    Anyone notice how if the AI run out of ammo, they will not pick up a new weapon and will only acquire ammo from an ammo container?

    Utterly retarded.

    I had Bill stand on a witch earlier too, was desperately trying to avoid her because for some reason as soon as a witch attacks, my game crashes.. and Bill just walks over next to her and says "Witch!" and then she triggers and game crashes.. Yay for the AI.
