Got some bad news for you, the demo goes down tomorrow when the retail ships.
Yeah I realised this because the game goes Live on Steam in less than 15 hours time

Still, though. So stupid of them to take down the demo once the actual game comes out. I'd like more time to deliberate my purchase

I agree with you, I see no reason to take the demo down. It can only attract more people to keep it up.

I've already bought it too and I think they should keep it up.

Louis/Zoey. They both have very distinct and sincere laughs. They also have the best other random voice clips too. Leaning towards Zoey for the amazing work the voice actor did when she gets hurt too much. Specifically if she's getting pummelled by a tank. That's something you won't forget anytime soon if you hear it.
Did you notice the voice actor of Zoey is the same one who did Cortana in Halo?

No i've never heard Cortana.

Another thing about those 2 that I didn't mention. Their voice clips are clear. If you say thanks you hear thanks. If you say thanks as Bill you get the stupid line saying "You shouldn't have done that... but thanks". You never hear the but thanks part because by that time he's been interrupted by someone/thing else. I feel as though I should keep spamming the thanks key until he actually says it. Francis on the other hand is just too indistinct. Speak clearly man. Bill and Francis both need to speak up, and speak clearly.

Meh, I only use the voice commands to annoy friends (and strangers).

Otherwise I just use my mic.

Anyone who plays this game honestly needs a mic.

"Merry Christmas".

Of course I do.

I like Bill the most, followed by Francis, Zoey and Louis in a tie for second.

I just feel more powerful playing as a 'Nam vet.

I like all of them. Each one has their own unique quirks that makes them distinctive and likable (at least imo), especially when it comes to spamming laugh.

Lol at the 2 latest blog updates.

The first:
Less than four hours to go until Left 4 Dead goes live at the stroke of midnight (EST) on Steam, and that means the Valve Launch Box will be dragged out of its off-season home in Gabe Newell's tool shed.

https://www.l4d.com/blog/images/posts/006/launchBox.jpg

What does the Launch Box do? When its keys and levers are turned and pulled in sequence, it emits clouds of dry ice, fires off klaxon noises, and finally, when you press the red button, releases games. And, because it's kept in Gabe Newell's tool shed and nobody ever bothers to check it for bee hives, bees. (If there's one thing that makes those things angrier than klaxon noises, it's dry ice!)

Like the release of the Orange Box this past October, the entire staff will be here tonight to celebrate. Unlike with the Orange Box release, we're hoping, the entire staff will not be attacked by as many bees.
The second:
Good news on the Valve Launch Box test run! There was an electrical fire, and all the bees burned to death. The bad news: several employees also perished in the fire and the game will be delayed.

Just kidding! About the game. There were some burning deaths. But the game's coming out!

We've said too much. Who wants to see our second TV commercial?

You need to update your GTA4 part of your sig I think. I read it was delayed until 2009.

@ Spidery_Yoda - they had a whole thing on the launch box (well, a short blurb, but still) in GameInformer the other month...pretty cool.

lolno. L4D411 must be on an eastern server, Valve is on the west coast, so you've actually got 3 and a half. Theoretically.

Valve releases actually pop out at about 7 AM western, so the trend shows at least.

10 and a half hours.

I don't think they're pulling that this time. Everything I've seen has indicated at 12:01 EST, it'll be available.

Plus, the Steam site says it's available TODAY (monday), so that'd make sense for users on the west coast.
