    Great, so we'll get a chainsaw that you can only use for two seconds at a time, then you have to let it "cool down" for five minutes.

    Yes! The only thing I wonder about is if it really could be excepted as major updates than an entire new game. Hopefully they sell the LFD2 as an addon for $20 or something.

    I'm a little miffed that it's getting released before any of the mods for the original will be available, tbh. Still :rock:

    I don't understand why this has to be packed into a brand new game. Why not just UPDATE L4D and make it PLAYABLE?

    Best news of the day. Although I do also wish they would hurry the **** up and release Episode 3 for sure!

    Ah, that's such a sucky piece of good news... now I have to buy that too... couldn't they have just made it an expansion for L4D?

    I'm annoyed that there isn't a new counter strike. CS:S is getting far too old, yet it's one of Valve's most played games. Sure, I love L4D and will undoubtedly buy v2, but why not update CS? The source engine has come a long way since the version that's used on L4D/TF2 and the hitboxes really need sorting, which could potentially be 2 primary selling points of a new version (hitboxes as accurate as TF2 would be much nicer!)

    I already thought the AI Director did all of that tbh. I swear Gabe states that it does do that in the engine explanation videos for L4D.

    Hmm...

    He might've suggested it did, but in-game? No.

    New L4D is always a good thing, although it is starting to sound like a whole new (or nearly) game, which is good.

    HL2-Ep3 won't be delayed because of this, they'll have completely different dev teams.

    Time between L4D and L4D2 = 1 year
    Time between EP2 and EP3 = 1 year 9 months (so far)

    Come on. Give us some tasty info on EP3. It's what we all really want.

    man, nobody is ever happy huh?

    I think that trailer looks insane and made me smile with the amount of mayhem I'll be doing when this baby is released.
    I hope they update the sounds though, the zombie moans feels old and tired all ready.

    Looking forward to this, but id like to see them can the Source engine, it is old and long in the tooth. I would like to see them make some DX10/11 offerings.

    S*D

    To be honest, I would say how amazing it looks, but to be honest.. it looks to be more like an expansion - a few reskins and new maps that will get them a cheap release for lots of money.. would much prefer them to work on l4d and then release a l4d 2 with an entirely new engine. =/

    1st game was mediocre to say the least valve has lost their touch already.
