    I still consider L4D2 a rare misstep by Valve. Scuttled the longevity of the franchise.

    I think L4D2 is a lot stronger than L4D1, though I'm not sure it was anything more than a glorified character pack.

    I didn't say it wasn't better, I said they done screwed up by doing them back-to-back. Getting 4 friends together is harder when they're split between versions, and it caused the whole thing to fizzle when half of us upgraded and the others just gave up.

    That I will agree with. :) Your comment wasn't clear to me.

    I really should reinstall both L4Ds.... I haven't played them in too long.

    I ran into that the other night. Invited to play, wasn't installed :-/

    I installed L4D2 for this reason.

    It's pretty fun. I'm glad we're playing again.

    But if L4D3 comes out before HL3 I'm going to shit a brick.

    I think these two games have the most amount of my steam play time with 300+hrs on both, lol! The random pvp groups I've been a part of are just...ridiculously hilarious or a damn good amount of fun.

    ^That is the best part of the game normally for me. Spend an hour or two before team play/skrims pubin' around. The horrible jokes and wth moments with randos doing really weird things, oh the joys of VS rage quits.....going hours without finishing a full set.

    Will you then take that brick and beat GabeN senseless with it? Because I feel like he would deserve it.

    Only if that actually gets HL3 out. Going to jail for assault with a deadly weapon would be silly otherwise. Totes worth it if I finally get to find out what happened.

    Don't lie to yourself, you'll preorder it on day 1 once it's available. Just like the rest of us.
    I actually didn't buy Orange Box for a few weeks after it's release (I already had Ep1 and was peeved you couldn't buy just Ep2 at the time). So far the only games I've pre-ordered have been Bioware and Guild Wars 2

    L4D3 on Source2 engine. Leak from VALVe tour during The International prelims.

    @NiGHTS There's someone working on L4D3 just like there's been people working on Episode 3 the last seven years. Doesn't mean something like it does at other game companies. They march to their own drummer.
  • d3k0yd3k0y Loveland, OH Icrontian
    There is just one guy set up in an office at the back of a bathroom using a PC from 1999 trying to finish HL3, cry because nobody can hear him. Forgotten in his toilet office.

    Also, note the "product" is Source2, as is the prefix on those lines. It's possible L4D3 is just L4D2 converted to the next-gen source engine for testing purposes. Both items reference unit testing, not features.

    Left 4 Life Fortress 3

    Single player is continuation of Half Life series.

    Multiplayer has class based Coop including survival and team based Vs.

    At any time you can wear your hats.

    So I've been mum about this because meh. I love L4D but it's not what I want Valve to be working on, but you all knew I was going to say that anyways.

    I don't actually believe this, but what if L4D3 was Valve's codename for HL2E3/HL3? I mean, they're the kind of company that would totally do something like that. I remember when L4D2 was announced at E3, so many people were convinced prior to the announce that it was going to be Episode 3. By now, the whole thing is sort of a joke with Valve that they've acknowledged numerous times before. If they wanted to, they could totally codename HL3 as L4D3 to throw people off and troll them.

    but that's not what's actually happening, because they're never releasing HL3.
