    The announcement of the free L4D2 actually crashed Steam for a bit earlier in the day. At least it did for a couple of my friends who were trying to get it.

    Yeah it went out right when it was announced.

    I picked it up. I never bought it for PC because I had already played it a lot on Xbox.
     
  8. Ha! This is amazing. I didn't see this deal advertised anywhere on Steam and I've been browsing a couple times per day for the last few days. I only saw it on this TechSpot page utterly by accident.

    You see I have 300 browser tabs open (but not loaded) in FireFox, and I was finally getting around (after a couple months) to going through them and closing any I no longer need open. Well... I came to this open TechSpot page, let it load to see if there was any info I needed before I closed it, and wouldn't you know it... this article mentioning the free Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam, was at the top of the list.

    LOL. Thanks TechSpot. :)

    That's very kind of them and appreciated but I much prefer single player games, and on a physical medium.

    You sir, you have a disease. Fear of losing relevant data. Same one I do. So I can relate.

    Jeez, you ever heard of bookmarks? You know, you can delete them later if you don't need them. Much more practical than leaving 300 tabs open. Good lord.

  16. Having a boat load of tabs is fine if you have a vertical/side tab add-on.

    I'm not sure I'll play much L4D2, but I grabbed it anyways. It's pretty cool to see a game spring back to life so easily, over a hundred thousand concurrent players atm. And that's up from like five thousand normally.

    Who has time for games when they have 300 tabs to sort through?
