    Not sure if this is old news, but Valve announced Left 4 Dead 2 will be coming out Oct. 5th, when the new DLC hits. The wording doesn't say this directly, but read it for yourself. Could even come out sooner.

    Great, hope it runs well on OSX. Maybe we can expect more graphics updates from Apple shortly thereafter.

    Was playing L4D2 last night. This game should win awards, it is that amazing. I don't know how much motion capture is used on facial expressions (if any), but Source has the best facial animations I've ever seen. In comparison, Dead Rising is a joke.

    Source has always done a great job of what I call 'eye level resource focus'. When Half-Life 2 came out and you compare to Doom 3, Doom 3 had overall better graphics, but HL2 did a great job with the stuff you would naturally look at - so it seemed to look better! They have done wonderful things with the engine over the last 5 years, as you say the L4D games look fantastic!

    I think that left 4 dead and left 4 dead2 is the best zombie slayer game in the video game history. no matter what will be coming, there is no game to beat this. dead rising 2 or whatever? it can't match.

    I think L4D and Dead Rising are in two different camps. L4D is serious, while in Dead Rising, you can quite literaly mow down zombies with an industrial lawn tractor, bust their heads in with frying pans, and go zombie bowling; you can even assemble a mega man costume and go nuts. They're both great games, (looking forward to Dead Rising 2!) but I think it's really hard to choose one over the other. Depends on your mood at the time, I guess.

    I need to clarify, L4D and L4D2 have the best facial animations of any video game, but not as good as Avatar, the movie. :)

    Oh, come now. Honk 20 clown noses for an award. How serious can that be. ;)

    In case anyone didn't see this, Valve confirmed L4D2 for tomorrow (Oct 5th), but L4D1 isn't ready but should be out by Halloween:

    When they announce things, the release is 10AM PST, 1PM EST. So adjust for your time zone, and you will know when it is available.

    Is L4D2 acceptable playable only by trackpad/keyboard of macbook white?

    I don´t have a game controller neither a mouse.

    Would be fun anyway, or I need to buy a game controller?
