    I really want this new content, but L4D2 will be released 2 months later :/ Here's hoping they integrate the two titles as previously mentioned.

    I never was too sour about L4D2, as long as it didn't mean L4D would not be dropped. This way i get even more content, i like it :D
    New campaign hooraay!
    I could see how XboX users will be miffed about the premium though.

    You mean Microsoft Points. Gamer points are not the currency of XBL MP, they're something totally different.

    Apparently this is the minimum charge that is forced upon Valve by M$, who takes a cut of all sales. The implication being that Valve would have given it away free otherwise...

    Glad to see them finally make L4D something resembling a full game. With all the little tweaks and changes that get introduced with every update, we finally have something that works well and has a decent amount of content. All I would ask for are more guns!

    Oh joy, 2 maps! Meh.

    I'd rather they push an update to fix the lobby system, their pathetic 2 map campaign will get overshadowed by the flood of high quality custom campaigns soon.

    At least it's something I guess.. either way, nearly a year and this is the first "real" content they push out.. :lol:

    meh - I like DLC of course, and love the game, but a 2 map campaign? Doesn't really matter if it takes you 45 mins to find a game that people don't ragequit after playing survivor side on first map , so i can't see how a campaign that is only 2 maps is a solution.
    All I really want for L4D/L4D2 is a damn matchmaking system. Get me the ability to look for lobbies that are 4 friends/clans and I'll be happy. Other than that, everything else right now for L4D is just. .. meh. I think they're saving all the cool stuff for L4D2 anyways.

    edit - Damn darklord, are you telepathic or something, I was just typing slow and posted my comment right after yours and we basically said the same thing. . . scary

    I call shenanigans. Two ~700MB map packs (Red and Black) were made available for Rainbow Six completely free of charge - and represent a lot more content than a single new campaign.

    So, why did Rainbow Six get free content and Left 4 Dead needs payment? There's something Valve isn't telling us.

    Left for dead is a very good game, and personally i dont think Valve are dont anything wrong by releasing L4D 2 as a separate game and i'll buy it most definitely.

    People whining about Valve should go play Star Trek Legacy, released by the now out of business MadDoc software. THAT was a company (and a distributor, Bethesda) who didnt care about their customers.

    Valve has consistently shown a great deal of care and creativity with their customers and their games.

    +2 to valve, thanks for your ongoing support of a great game!

    Yup, and battlefield bad company had a new game type and map that you could download for free. Valve obviously are charging xbox users for no real reason*. I never had a bad word to say about valve, I was not bothered about them releasing l4d2 so soon, but I am annoyed about this. Yet clearly this will get swept under the carpet, and people will keep moaning about l4d2 being released so soon. *sigh*

    *Other than to make money, I guess to recoup the cost of developing for consoles. But then it was their decision to make it for the xbox so they should support it the same as well.

    Still think it's a rushed DLC, just to make the L4D2 haters rest, because they have a new DLC coming...

    "Hey look, lets make a small versus mode that ends in 30min +/-, I'll make the levels thru the weekend and we call it a DLC to please L4D1 fans, that way they stop bitching"

    I have a L4D copy, and I feel the same way as other L4D1 users feel, I'm buying L4D2, but this DLC... it just looks that... "here, here's your DLC you were all bitchin about"...

    Seriously? What the hell do you expect? You bought a game, played the game and you want more free. They give you the DLC you were all moaning about, and you moan. Grow up.

    We expected that they give what they promised. Obviously that was too much to hope for that they would keep their word. Read the L4D2 boycott manifesto, etc, and you'll understand.
