@TheSeductiveMoose: That makes just the two of us so far.

Well, it's free. It's also made by Valve. They're pretty good at making games, right? 
 
Did I mention it's free? What can go wrong?

#6 Posted by Vitamin_Dei (199 posts) -

Pretty much a no-brainer. I love multiplayer, I love the PC, I love Steam. Looking forward to it. :)

It's free, isn't it? So why even bother considering it; I'm downloading it as soon as it''s released.

@Bear: Along with the other 2.5 million people on Steam. I can see Steam having problems tonight. (Today, depending on your part of the world) :)

I was waiting for them to finish this when they got hired by Valve (2 or 3 years ago?).  Pretty stoked that it survived at all.  Even stokedier that it's free.

#12 Posted by Shibbxyz (289 posts) -

Why not? Free is free. It also happens to look interesting .

#20 Posted by Raakill (850 posts) -

I don't get why they didn't allow anyone to preload it.

Yeah I am. It's free, why not.

Was getting ready to play it, stupid timer. Guess I have to wait a few more hours.  
Can't complain really I mean it is free.

#24 Posted by ISuperGamerI (1972 posts) -

I'm actually excited for this game, cause it looks like a 2D version of L4D but with aliens and it's FREEEE!

#25 Posted by Meltac (2000 posts) -

Sure.

#26 Posted by Raakill (850 posts) -

Now it's back to two hours. I think Valve is fucking with us.

#27 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2829 posts) -

Its a free game so.... DEFINITELY

#28 Posted by Mechwing (271 posts) -

#29 Posted by Sjosz (489 posts) -

I will get it, delete it, and then get it again just for the heck of it.

Going to go ahead and say that the quality of this game and its price is the undisputed "Best Value" for a video game in history.

Better than Portal for free? Really?!
#36 Posted by Darkstar614 (1123 posts) -
@creamypies: That wasn't free forever.. : /
#37 Posted by Jaserno (255 posts) -
@creamypies: True, but I brought The Orange Box so Portal wasn't free for me "/
#38 Posted by Creamypies (4154 posts) -
@Darkstar614: @Jaserno: Regardless. I doubt this game will be better than that.
#39 Posted by BraveToaster (12636 posts) -

It's free. 
It's a video game. 
During a recession . 
 
A free video game, during a recession. Hell yeah, I'm going for it.

I was thinking the same thing.
#41 Posted by NekuCTR (1710 posts) -

only reason I wouldn't get it is because valve makes some crazy hard achievements and I don't want another D staining my record. But hey, I already have like 50 of them what's one more!
