The demo is available if you pre-order as of yesterday.

This game spells the end of my social and academic lives. See you guys in a few years.

Cuh. You don't have to be antisocial to be a gamer.

Anyway Jen's not a gamer, she plays WoW.

mila kunis is addicted to warcraft, apparently, which means it can't be that bad. i'd eat a yard of her shit for a sniff of her knickers.

What is it like in terms of system raping? Is it going to be all good on a Core 2 6600, 3gigs RAM, 7950 512MB?

Average source game specs. I've got everything totally maxed on my system (8800GTX, QX9650), so you prolly can too.

Also, it's fucking wicked.

In fact things I'm reading suggest that you'll get better framerates in Left 4 Dead than in TF2 because the engine's been properly optimised for multiple cores now.

Only have internet connection over phone, although tried it with Joe the other night and it was fairly playable despite a ping of about 140.

Ordered a connection off Sky yesterday though soon :D

Snail4Dead would be awesome.

I've just realise you can get this off Amazon for about £20 (a fair bit cheaper), and you get a physical copy to boot. What are Valve playing at?

Will you get on the preorder demo if you get it through amazon though?

I'm becoming more and more tempted by this game. It's been about... 3 years since I actually bought one :spank: .

Well no, but the demo goes on public release like today anyway, so it's a moot point really.

And either way, I'm sorry but good as it is, early access to the demo is not worth about £14.

Could have been worse, could have spent 14 quid on a Kid Rock album.

s'about £5 cheaper tops, and doesn't take into account postage. Also Valve games are supposed to be bought on steam :colbert:

Erm.. Price on Amazon, with postage: £21.96
Price on Steam, with 10% pre-order discount: £34.48

That's £12.50 in my book. Less money, plus you get physical media, and you can still whack your CD-key into Steam and do it as if you bought it off there. That doesn't make any sense to me. You are basically paying £12.50 for early access to a demo that's now public anyway, and the ability to play it the instant it's launched. They're taking the piss if you ask me.
