I preloaded mine already, got some work to do at the moment so I'll give it a whirl later on.

I thought it was supposed to be the 10th?

The demo is already out and playable to anyone on Steam/XBL, EVERYONE (I guess there will be a separate download?) will have access to it on the 10th and the game releases on the 17th. If you pre-ordered the game you can pre-load the demo so you can play it on the 17th without having to download it.

Uh, I'm on PC, been playing the PC demo for a few days now. And I have not pre-ordered, so it's open to everyone now.

You know it's funny. I played a ton of the PC demo yesterday, then watched Zombieland... so this night I dreamt I was in a truck riding around the city and malls killing zombies with three friends, what a shock ;P Great dream too

It's ridiculous how many zombie dreams I got after playing left4dead xD
Gunna play the demo later on, as mentioned earlier. xD

Going to try and get a decent amount of play in before the pre-order time is up. If I'm going to buy it I wanna get the Team Fortress 2 hat and the in-game baseball bat. xD

Jesus Christ, not true at all. Would it kill you to actually read what they said, instead of read what fat obnoxious bloggers lied about for the sake of hits?

There's an inherent contradiction in boycotting something because you like it too much. What he said may not reflect the facts, but it represents the popular conception of what happened, the boiling down of the meat into that laughing phrase to dismiss the boycott as having any substance. It should never have been a boycott, the facts are more in line with a petition, IMO.

- It's funny, I had never played L4D before, and so coming into the demo I first reset the key bindings (all you people who still use AWSD are fools :P I use WEDF) as I do with every game, and because of the way the menu is setup on the demo it looked like the single-player campaign was the first thing on there.

So, I just clicked the first option and ended up in an online quick-match! So, my first L4D experience was online, with people. We won. I didn't embarrass myself ;P Though I had no idea how to turn the flashlight off and mistook pushing zombies back for a melee attack :P

Yesterday I did a couple 'expert' level games with random people, 1 out of 3 attempts are successful. One thing I like quite a bit is that you don't seem to be horribly ammo starved. I've always hated that 'horror game' trope. And melee is stupidly powerful, and that's fun! During the tower alarm sequence, on expert, I've often just backed into a corner and swung the machete wild and survived wave after wave Game really could use a samurai sword though Sword > baseball bat.

That is indeed the one flaw they made. It's not a boycott. And since they called it a boycott, the entire fucking world refused to even read their intentions, and just mocked them instead. 100% of their intentions were entirely understandable and I definitely believe that the later L4D1 patches would have never come out if it werent for these guys. L4D1 was completely stagnant until the boycott, and then suddenly valve went back and actually released a new campaign, new mode, and all the sdk tools. It sickens me how the group got absolutely zero thank yous from the players for this.

So they achieved a great victory but failed to present themselves and their cause properly. They needed a PR guy. Still, that's far better than having a good PR guy and achieving no results. So, I think they're happy.

You really think that these guys were the reason that we got that stuff? I'm dumbfounded. Correlation does not equal causation.
