    I searched, but didn't find a real dedicated thread for this upcoming Source game.

    First of all, anyone trying the demo right now or planning to buy it? It's definitely a multiplayer game that I think I might be able to get into.

    Second of all, Circuit City is going to be selling it for $39.99 (U.S.) Available 11/19/08 – 2 PM, which is the best price I've seen for it yet. Even on Steam it's only on sale for $44.90.

    I'd love to hear comments from anyone playing the demo.

    I'm staying awake all night and into the day until the demo unlocks for those of us who are too cynical or smart to pay in advance. I've been anticipating this game for so long now and ith such high hopes.

    I know to stay objective and realistic but I'm going to mark out like such a fanboy for this as long as it runs on my system reasonably well!

    Ive heard nothing but really good things but im gonna wait for a price drop first. $45 for what is really a half-life 2 mod is a bit much.

    The demo for everyone comes out at 10am. Lets get some games going when that happens.

    You are wasting your time waiting around. Its not available until 10am pacific time.

    The game has got some issues with suddenly freezing, but apart from that it's perfect. If L4D is a mod for HL2, then Portal is too.

    I will get the public demo when it comes out later today.

    If it is good I will order the full game for the 18th.

    All of my friends who tried it say it's awesome. There was an early access possible for a few people.

    I couldn't and still can't try it because steam is blocked by my college firewall, but I should get a new home with a real internet soon. And then, no doubt I'll immediatly get it D:

    The witch is cruel. I was on a server and we had a total newbie with us. He shot at the witch and she went ballistic. Knocked over the idiot, almost killing him, but about 8 shots from the auto-shotgun, standing right next to her, got her down.

    That looks pretty bad though, Fuzzle. Are you running low graphics? My game looks way better.

    I'm not running AA and I have the film grain on. All other settings are max though except AF which I think is on 4 or something.
    Runs at a solid 60, but if I turn on AA it starts bogging down in the outdoor areas. I like the film grain effect in motion, but it looks bad in screenshots.

    Hm, I'm not even sure I noticed that. I will have to examine the settings when I get to my home computer, perhaps take some 1920x1200 screens :)

    I've already pre-ordered Left 4 Dead (physical copy, only £20 at Amazon UK). It looks so fun and is one of my "must-get" games this Winter. I'll definitely be playing the demo tonight when it unlocks.

    I remember seeing this booth set up at The Showdown LANFest 2007, in San Jose, CA. Since then, I havn't seen anything about it.

    Does it still have that annoying glow in the wall where your team mates are? Or a map with radar? That idea was very dumb IMO.

    This game looks pretty awesome but I will probably wait for the price to come down. I'll be too busy poopsocking in WotLK to play it anyway ;)

    Yeah, and it's pretty damn useful. Without it, the game would suck, because sometimes you will never know if people are ahead of you or behind you.

    Oh man I had no idea that it's almost out, nor that the demo is out. That's sick!

    So how difficult is it? Replay value?

    So far the demo is great its one of the best Zombie games i have played and is a really innovate FPS. I am definitely going to add this to my game collection. Its not to hard at first and gets harder based on how your playing or the difficulty level you choose I still have yet to beat it on Expert.
