    Well, that would be awesome! Been playing the demo all day and I really like it :) Was gonna buy it, but now I'll just wait to see if I get it with the pack. Thanks!

    That it does! So if it pre-loads, you have the game :) Well, kinda weird to just "get" games like this, hadn't used Steam a couple of days when TF2 came out, it was just there all of a sudden. Seems I'll be playing some L4D tomorrow, w00t :) Can't wait, awesome game :)

    Ordering from Amazon seemed like a good idea, cheaper than steam. Not anymore! It wont arrive for like a week past the Steam release date, damn it.

    Same problem. Run L4D through Steam, it tells you to buy the game. But you can still run the game from

    c:\program files\steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead demo

    Although it seems that Steam has discontinued online support for the demo.

    Anyone got any news on this issue??

    Steam has discontinued the demo all together. Seems two randomly generated levels were "too much game", and now Steam wishes demo users to now pay. And, no, you can't play single player... ffs.

    C'mon, Steam! I don't get payed 'till later this week!

    I saw L4D retail at a store today. Too bad it was $99.95AUD (~$65USD) :flame:

    Would've picked it up at almost anything below that, but no... they HAD to super-inflate it to the maximum RRP. Guess I'll pick it up over the weekend when the more price-competitive stores decide to stock it... or maybe buy through Steam and forego the sexy box/packaging.
