Man I can't wait for L4D2. I've been pining for new official campaigns ever since I started trying to play 3rd party campaigns and somehow always wind up with a slightly different version as my friends. Valve needs some sort of process for 3rd party mappers if only for version control.

Also I heard the L4D2 campaigns are going to be longer, and have a story, which are benefits in my opinion.

So, in conclusion, this is the thread to talk about L4D, L4D2, and how awesome they are/going to be (except for Australians, who apparently have the worst government ever).

    I am also excited for this. Played Death Toll and No Mercy with my buddy the other day and it is still as fun as it ever was.

    I still prefer KillingFloor to L4D.

    Much more Oomph in the guns.

    I love how Australia banned this game not because of anything obscene, but because it was "violent".

    Oh shit, I heard about the Fly Gabe campaign, but hadn't twigged that it was LaCabra. D'oh moment.

    The guy is really talented. Like almost convinced me to try working with him talented.

    Well this is somewhat dumb, so just after the whole LaCabra getting Newell to visit Brisbane/boycotting thing, seems like Joe won't even get to play L4D2 anyway, so it's all a moot point!

    They haven't deemed it unfit for adults. They've deemed it unfit for 16 year olds.

    Australia has this loopy system where there's no Adults Only rating for video games, despite there being one for film. It means if a game is more violent than an M15+, it's illegal to sell.

    But get this loophole: it's not illegal to own or import, provided it would not be objectional to an adult. So if it would have earned an R18 rating (if such a thing existed), you can buy it from an online store in NZ and get it shipped to you, perfectly legally, and customs can't interfere. Which is pretty much what people do.
