You're a sucker if you buy any VALVe game on a console, and that is the truth.

I find nothing wrong with playing L4D on the xbox where I don't have to convince myself and my friends collectively to buy 4 copies of a game and have 4 computers just to play with my friends online as a team. Plus, I have a 56" TV, I think I'd rather play on that than a computer that's a decade old.

It's a pretty simple and boring game in itself, IMO it's only fun if you play with friends and use teamwork.

Some achievements are just impossible to get when playing a public game.

I don't know... I just don't feel I want to try it. Sure, L4D was good. But L4D2, I just feel like I'd be getting the exact same game with new character skins and the ability to use melee weapons. I prefer range anyways. Looking at videos, it looks exactly the same as L4D1 too.

Anyone heard about the BS surrounding the AUS version of the game?

AUS does not have a rating above MA15+ for games - apparently we Aussies are all idiots. When L4D2 was initially released in AUS it was refused classification (IE:banned). Subsequently VALVe created a no/low gore version which satisfied the (pathetic) MA15+ rating for AUS release. Plenty of vids on the net showing how pathetic our version is in comparison.

I'd be keen to play the game (with SCL guys when I have time), but I'm not buying the AUS version.
The easiest way for me to get the proper version is for someone in the US to gift it to my account (and be paid back accordingly).
Any takers... PM me ;)

Patched, I'm afraid. There are ways to bypass it, but it is sadly not that easy.

WTF?! Even the gifted US version doesnt work now? How did that happen? Why can't my steam account simply be associated with a US address + someone send me L4D2 as a gift?

Heck, I'd temp change my steam account password, give u the login details, get you to buy it from your place, then grab the account back, change password and reemburse you.

The problem lies with the Australian rating system itself. The moment this bypass was discovered, Valve was legally bound to fix it. Either that, get sued, or not release in Australia at all.
Go the South African way. Blame your government

Yeah, I know that. But as long as they are seen to be doing something (sufficiently), they are covered. It doesnt require them to ensure that thrre is 0% chance than an uncensored game can be played in AUS.

Done. GIFTING still works :)
Finished the game today. Not bad, but I honestly had more fun playing Cysis:Warhead and COD:MW1&2.

I'm planning on this game being my lone game that I get this Christmas. I've heard good things. L4D was nice, but it got very repetitive after a while. Hopefully L4D2 has more variety.

Superficially it looks like L4d+ extra stuff, but there's more to it than that. Aside from the new weapons, items special infected, coding was drastically change improved. I would say that L4D felt more like a beta and L4D2 is what the first one should have been.

How come I haven't seen this thread before?

I'll be willing to play a lot after exams (which end in 4 days). I'm pretty sure I joined the SC:L community group, so...
See you all soon. :D
