    Okay so how do I connect to the PA server since Left4Dead is using some retarded matchmaking service and not a server browser like a normal game

    Don't worry about it. Servers are not all that important in this game. Join the armadeaddon group, and hop into group chat. You can easily find four people to play there, or find games in progress.

    There isn't a real PA server. Job and Alabasterslim have one up, but your better off joining the armadeaddon chat and finding a game there.

    Man, I should really stop reading this thread at work. I want to play now. Was trying to get into a game last night around midnight EST but the group chat was surprisingly empty. There were like 3 people in the chat, one was away, one was in a full game and the other was playing something else completely. I tried to get a game going with random people, but every group I got stuck with didn't understand the meaning of the word teamwork. It's much more fun to play with the PA group.

    Can anyone recommend a good set of headphones/microphone for this game? I need one post haste!

    I use the old version of these, and they are incredible. Judging by the reviews, they kept the quality just as high with this new version.

    Do you have any surround-sound recommendations?
    I've got an old pair of Zalman ZM-RS6Fs, but don't have an integrated microphone or installation sofware, so are kinda tricky to set up right.

    Yea pretty much, except the crying part, i cry myself to sleep every night because I can't have costanza inside me 24/7.

    It's an addiction, I know I'm looking into it.

    But for real, I've always wanted to check out the 60s/70s.

    Roland: tis true
    Domnhall: You're probably right, but the country side is like.... west MA and Pennsylvania.. and I don't know any weed connections out there :P

    But the 60s/70s would also require you to go through the 80s.

    Trust me. You wouldn't want that.

    I am wearing baggy checkered pants as we speak. I'm not even lying.

    Oh hell yes.

    I must have a model of Louis in baggy MC Hammer pants.

    Someone get to work on this now!

    Both are good, but one you can connect with at work via Mibbit, and the other requires Steam.

    True, but the room offers a lot more mobility for you to dodge around him than a corner staircase.
