    Ah i hadn't heard an official list on the new zombies.

    The clown and Hazmat ones in the trailer looked kick ass.
    Any list of the new weapons... though the Axe is enough for me.

    Roll on Tuesday 27th 8PM GMT+1

    Can we keep this thread for actual L4D2 news/info, etc
    We already had the 'booo' discussion & most of us don't care.
    Thanks.

    Skold - So buy it in a store & miss the first week of the demo.

    Crap balls I'm late.

    I woke up this morning checked steam and got all excited. Rushed here to post about it, but haarg had already done so.

    Also Borderlands is up for pre-loading.

    I still think we can do realism with HP's only.

    No big deal.

    Realism mode sounds pretty cool. I wonder if it will be available in Versus this time.

    Why? In the current Versus mode the survivors are like olympian gods.
