You No Longer Have An Excuse NOT to Order Left 4 Dead 2

   Valve announced today on the Team Fortress 2 Blog that they will be, for the first time ever, crashing two Valve universes together.  

  This is  not  fan fiction! This is  not  a dream sequence! The characters from  Team Fortress 2  will  team-up with Bill's hat from  Left 4 Dead 1!


   That's right, Bill's Hat has found it's way into the Team Fortress 2-niverse. Adding to the list of awesome deals like a free and exclusive baseball bat, 10% off, and early demo access, Valve has announced that if you pre-order Left 4 Dead 2 for PC, you will receive the hat of iconic survivor Bill for all your characters in Team Fortress 2. 

   Now if only we could get Team Fortress 2 characters to run the Left 4 Dead levels. Come on home-brew, don't fail me now!
 
   Anybody out there recently participate in TF2's holiday event? Wasn't it awesome? Exploding pumpkins make every game better.

Yeah, I saw that when I closed one of my steam games. I'll probably do it for the baseball bat.

Ey, cool! I was gonna buy this game anyways. But this makes it even more tempting.

Posted by JoelTGM

wow.  I guess it was a good thing that I bought TF2 for $2.50 on Steam that one time.  It's an awesome game, and now I get to take full advantage of my L4D2 pre-purchase bonuses.

Yeah I noticed this earlier, when I launched TF2 to play some more of the Harvest Event(which I also got a hat in :P) pretty cool little cross game thing Valve did.

Posted by DrRandle
@pause422: Indeed, indeed it was. I'd love to see more cross-Valve promotions. Perhaps a medigun in L4D, Zombies in TF2, Gordon Freeman as the10th class. Let's do this.

I was hoping that they'd brought the Left 4 Dead characters, in to Left 4 Dead 2. I was disappointed.

Posted by DrRandle
@FlamingHobo: Who says they haven't? : ) There's still plenty of game not revealed and downloadable content in the future. Don't give up hope! If enough people ask for it, we just might see it!

TF2 characters in L4D would be pretty comical.
 
And what was his hat was it a beret?

Posted by Liber

hmm ... so they expect me to pay 50$ for a game that should have been a DLC for L4D in the first place ... because they give me A HAT ?
 
TY Valve , but I don't buy your games anymore.

I agree with you. Valve has given us so much for no money plus they never said the were done with L4D 1.

But does Bill's hat has a character page?

Posted by Hero_Swe

Actually, I still do. It's L4D with a skinpack

Actually I do have an excuse. I don't have Team Fortress 2, and I don't have a PC capable of playing games.
 
So yeah.

Don't see why a "hat" would make me want to pre order L4D2.
Posted by jakob187

I've got a good reason for not pre-ordering or ordering Left 4 Dead 2: 
 
I work at a place that is going to buy it anyways, so I'll end up playing it for free.

Posted by demonbear

I own L4D and i wish i didn't paid for that. And i don't care about team fortress at all, therefore my reason not to order L4D2 is still very valid.

Posted by Fallen189

"Fuck pre-order deals"
"Pre-order deals are so good!!!"
 
Make your minds up.

Posted by Kowbrainz

Yeah, I have an excuse. Seen the Australian version?

MW 2 . . . I'll wait for the review and a sale. 
 
L4D2 . . . don't really have the money to shell out right now.

Your impeccable vocabulary has floored me, good sir.
 
On a serious note: I still see no reason to get L4D2, especially after the waste of money that L4D1 was.

The demo did not impress.

Posted by Randolph

I have an excuse, I just don't like the new cast.  Gimme my Zoey, Louis, Bill, and Francis.

Posted by Cube

Except for not wanting it.

Hats are stupid. Nothing on this earth will get me to pony up 50 bucks for L4D2.

Posted by SXBIG

Must get now... must have hat... cant stop me from buying this... must get now...

I did not read any of the rest because the first sentence you said WAS COMPLETE AND UTTER BULLSHIT.
Posted by mordukai

Frankly I don't really care for valve games. My money is best spent on games I'll actually enjoy. 

Edited by SJSchmidt93

Actually I do. It's called $$$$$$$. 
 
The hat thing is pretty sweet, but not worth $45.

Posted by Origina1Penguin

Much like almost every other pre-order deal, that does not seem the slightest bit interesting to me.  Still going to buy the game though.

Yeah, umm... I don't play TF and L4D nor do I intend to, ever.

I guess a few people actually care about a few pices of superficial bullshit that makes your character  "LOL SO UNIQUE"
 
I, however, am not one of those people.
