  1. Keeping its promise, Valve has pushed out new downloadable content for its popular zombie shooter, Left 4 Dead. Called "Crash Course," the update brings a new campaign, which falls between the events of "No Mercy" and "Death Toll," and features fresh locations, dialogue, refined item spawning and more. As we've noted in the past, the DLC is available to PC gamers for free via Steam, but owners of the Xbox 360 version must cough up 560 Microsoft Points -- about $7.

    I'm not into L4D but based on the commentary you see everywhere (including some TS staff members), there is no doubt Valve has a knack for the perfect gameplay balance, starting with the original Half Life and basically every single title they have released from then and on.

    LOVE THIS GAME! Just sent this link to some buddies that have been waiting for the price to drop. They better get it now! Really is the best use of teamwork I've seen in a Co-op game in a long time.

    I'm with Julio, while I don't really fancy L4D myself Valve sure seems to know how to make successful games

    Saturday is the 3rd

    Think I will be picking this one up myself. I've got friends that have been telling me to buy it and I just didnt want to spend the money, half price makes it much better.

    Haha, you're right Eddie. I got that date from Shacknews without looking at a calendar myself. I've fixed it now, thank you.

    Steam's servers buckled from the load last night! When I found out about the DLC, it took me 20+ retries in Steam to get a complete download at 5:00 PM Pacific Time. Once ready, the servers lagged and bounced me out a few times in the game. Which is something unusual in the past 6 months that I've played L4D. I think that does a pretty good job of expressing how popular this game is.

    Very disappointed compared to the other campaigns
