    So the beta hits today, you pre-ordered Saz?
    Would much rather have a few games with folks I know from here as it is far more entertaining.

    I'm still in Waikiki at the AFCEA technet. Will be back in Austin by tomorrow afternoon so maybe hit me up during the weekend :D

    Btw, are you even on IM mr Punk? Matt's on my list but I never see you online :D

    X, it's about 49 bucks I think, was 45 for pre-order, its 4-way co-op so it would be awesome if we could get a few sessions as a group together :D

    Yeah I am always on messenger, although I am only on Steam if I am playing something which is not too often at the moment.

    I tried L4D online earlier but every server seemed to be both in the US (odd at 2am eh?) and then asking for a password so I didn't actually get to try it. Single player was kinda fun and scary though.

    I played it last night, when I got back.

    Played with 4 steam friends and finished the demo. It's FUN :D

    Can't wait for the whole thing.

    Yea I have finished it on Expert many times now, I find it quite easy actually. And I am someone who has issues with hardness in games. Still, can't wait for full version.

    Did you play it by yourself or with friends?

    It's much easier by yourself than with Friends.

    can it be played on the PC with only the xbox360 controller or do you also need a keyboard and mouse also?

    I use the Keyboard & Mouse to play it, but it supports the 360 Controller.

    Is the demo gone or am I crazy? :( Read some good stuff about this game but would like to try the demo before giving Valve $50.

    Well from what I have been hearing the demo is available to those who have not paid for the full game, those who have can't play it.

    Are you sure it's not the other way around? I've not paid for the game and I don't see the demo anywhere. I even followed a link for it and it dumps me right at the "home" section on steam. It's also not listed under demos. :(

    I don't see why it would be that way, maybe it's just messed up. They have had a busy week.

    from what i heard the demo was only to be around before the release, and has been removed since it's been released. in a way doesn't make sense.... and in a way kinda does....
