@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 (188 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 (285 posts) -

#15 Posted by FakePlasticTree (449 posts) -

It's a little too expensive. I'll wait for a sale.

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

#20 Posted by Raakill (870 posts) -

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

#21 Posted by Slax (911 posts) -

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

#22 Posted by gamb1t (965 posts) -

#23 Posted by Webby (720 posts) -

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 (1880 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 (2001 posts) -

Sure.

#26 Posted by Raakill (870 posts) -

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

#27 Posted by CaptainTightPants (2834 posts) -

Its a free game so.... DEFINITELY

#28 Posted by Mechwing (265 posts) -

you know. before it said 2 hours. It said 1 hour. so the time is so iffy when it is released.

#29 Posted by Sjosz (485 posts) -

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

#30 Posted by Gamer_152 (14072 posts) -

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 (1098 posts) -
@creamypies: That wasn't free forever.. : /
#37 Posted by Jaserno (243 posts) -
@creamypies: True, but I brought The Orange Box so Portal wasn't free for me "/
#38 Posted by Creamypies (4060 posts) -
@Darkstar614: @Jaserno: Regardless. I doubt this game will be better than that.
#39 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 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 (1663 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!
