Gr8 game and gr8 price. nice find. av sum heat

Just note the sequel to this game will be available on the 17th November this year.

On topic: Good game and good price if you haven't played it yet.

Is the single player decent? I've invested a lot of time in TF2 and don't really feel like playing anything else online much.

also new level has just (in the past 30 min) has gone live so new content to be had and unlike the 360 its free free free free

Heat and rep added.
Love the game, highly recommend it especially at this price!
Single is fine but it plays best with a good group of survivors. Once you play multiplayer, single player isn't as exciting. imho.

And thanks for the info on the new level too, lostboy. Downloading.... oops servers are too busy again lol.

It's pretty much a game where a microphone and online play is essential for the full experience

the single player is exactly the same as online, as the game is completed in campaigns online and offline except you dont have "VS mode" and you would be playing with A.I which doesn't quite feel as pleasing to play.

Its the same maps for both and there isn't really a story, its just survive if you can (which is a big challenge).

If you know 3 other people who want this you can get this even cheaper too as you can buy a 4 bundle pack on steam for £37.49. Just go through the normal checkout.

That could work out at £9.37ea. Perhaps ppl could club together on here?

Excellent find. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks! Been missing this since I sold the 360 version - think it'll be more fun on the PC, and cheaper too

good price but i perfer to have the dvd copy of the game rather than a downloaded one. If it was DVD i would buy it.

Are you joking the DVD version and this is exactly the same the only difference is the DVD version will put some of it on your HDD so you don't have to download as much!!

As soon as you register it which you do!!!! as you have to as there both steam versions the DVD becomes completely useless as it's then registered to a online account where you can re-download it anywhere you like exactly as this!!

Same with any Steam game you buy on DVD in a shop such as Team Fortress 2the DVD is useless after the first time you install it, it becomes worth less then the DVD case and cover.

Banned

awsome game worth the money

well worth the money,

as previously mentioned, this is probably going cheap due ot L4D 2 coming out in Nov.. so get in some good practice now

ok i changed my mind im going to buy this oncwe i figure what my steam account is.

Well, I've purchased it, installed steam and I get an error saying "failed to create key"

So I've paid for the game but don't actually have it yet :-)

The DVD doesn't become useless. If you reformat your HD you have to download your entire games collection off Steam which takes ages whereas a DVD lets you install the game within 30 mins. Of course if you can guarantee high speed internet access all the time then you have a nice little luxury.

Keep trying, the servers are stupid busy tonight with people downloading the new Crash Course campaign, took me ages to connect and then got sub dial up speed for a while whilst updating. Worth it though when it finished.

thats what i worry about, plus i have two computers that i can play it on. My internet is kinda slow for gaming, download speed of about 400kb/s.

I still love Day of Defeat the most - for a highly addictive version check out the gungame server at dauk.co.uk - server address 78.129.202.18:27025

First off, may I say, the new dlc is rubbish. I was looking forward to it, but it just feels like an ok user created pair of levels. Some friends and I walked through the level feeling bored. I'm amazed at its quality level considering it's valve :-( However, apart from that downer, the rest of the game is a real gem!

Anyway, here are some facts about the recent posts:

1. Yes, you can buy a dvd, but a) it'll cost you more unless you get it cheap deal (somehow) and b) as pointed out, you still have to download all the additional updates and content that has been released since the dvd's were initially pressed. And the last GOTY edition was in mid April.

2. Since it's a valve game, it will be tied to your steam account. And this means it will be available to download anywhere you have an internet connection.

3. For those worried about having to reinstall each time they change their system or want to play on another machine, try this...install on a separate drive from your system drive. This way, you will always have your games collection on a drive waiting for you to download the steam client software for it all to be reinstalled. That's it! So, download once and then store.

I have mine on a separate partition where it's safe for when I reformat my system, which will happen come October 22nd, hint hint! In fact, I moved my entire games collection (70GB), reinstalled steam and then put my games in the appropriate directory. They all work perfectly!

So, fret not! Even if you want to move to another system, you could physically move the drive with your games or simply copy the game directory files to the next machine. Then it will be available there without having to redownload!


Since February this year, I've really taken to steam. I used to hate it. But it really seems to make sense the more I use it. And hey, I still have store bought games. I'm just out for the best deal available.

P.s. Lookout for the weekend steam deals. Sometimes...just sometimes, they can be just as awesome as this deal :thumbsup:

I usually prefer to buy my games for my consoles, but the free dlc is a huge plus, unlike paying for it on the 360.

Id rather have the disk , paying for digital downloads is a rip off 99% of the time , your generaly paying more than the rest of the world to play a game due to the pathetic money grabbing of the publishers $£E are usually charged the same meaning the £ gets shafted plus you can usually buy the game from an online retailer cheaper than the prices steam tend to charge . Wont vote on this one but i wouldnt pay £1 for digital download.

For people that do not know,
You can backup ANY game on steam to hard drive, usb stick, DVD etc, using the INBUILT backup service.

The big advantage with this method is that it will include all the updates, maps, packs etc that have been downloaded.

Therefore, when you restore the backup, the install will include all the updates, so you don't have to update again.

STEAM is brilliant.

e.g. TF2 was originally a 2-3gb download.
Now, with all the updates and map downloads over the year, it has swelled to 6GB, but I have backed up the 6gb, so when I restore, I will not have to downlad the updates again.

Still playing this great game!

Still about £35 in stores.

Bought this a few months ago and it is a cracking game. Don't know how long it will last after L4D2 comes out but I think people have grown to love it and will still play it. Well worth £12.50.
However playing public versus may cause you to lose some faith in humanity, there are some real A holes playing this game. But when you get a good group there is nothing better.

Bargain

sweet been waiting for this

Sorely tempted by this... WIll flip a coin when I get back from work and make the decision that way. It is one of those games that I have been wanting to try for ages but always put off thanks to one thing or another...

Thanks very much for posting this. i've been tempted by this game for so many months as I have friends who rave about it. Downloading it now!

Still struggling. Can't find much help online either! Something wrong with my PC I think. It's exactly the same problem as this guy has: -

forums.steampowered.com/for…228

Paid for a game I can't even download or play!

Just to reiterate and respond to Frodo's post. You DON'T have to use the built-in backup for your downloaded games. But it's nice to have the facility. Especially for storing multiple games on one dvd disc.
I, however, simply copied the games folder from inside the steam folder to a separate drive. Reinstalled steam on that separate drive and moved my games inside that new Steam games folder. Easy!


Also, to respond to the argument about steam prices. Yes, in some cases, they are higher than retail. I don't buy games on steam unless it's cheaper than retail or I like having something online, i.e. was looking at Mirror's Edge at £11.75 on steam's 10% off. But I found it for £9.99 at play.com.
Another way to get good prices is to get games you want on the weekend steam deal or special weekly offers. That's where I've really built up a games collection from. So many great offers to be had. There are other online game stores that do similar deals, i.e. D2D, Gog, etc. etc.

As I said, I didn't like the idea of games being online and without boxes, but tbh, I'm happy to have the space. My bookcase is full of boxes and I'm getting tired of them. And hey, it's damned useful to have steam streaming updates to games directly when they're available. That's a time saver alone. The other day, 2 friends of mine wanted to play CoD:WaW. Myself and 1 of them had it on steam. The other guy had his store bought copy. He couldn't play at first cause he didn't realise the game had had an update recently. But we played for an hour before he finally downloaded and updated his copy. Very handy not to have to find out if games need updated or not. Good times

Again, hope this helps. And as before, Left4Dead is only playable on steam.

They did this at the right time, with L4D2 coming out in just over a month. Quality game but you wouldn't want to be paying too much more with the new one coming out so soon.

Any word on when this will expire?

Thanks youthinkitsfunny for the brilliant deal, your post has been featured on ]Dealspwn, the Hotukdeals gaming blog. Thank you for all the great deals!

Steams updates can be a doiubel-edged sword - I remember a few times when I've wanted to play a game of TF2 or soem other Steam game only to find its auto-downloading an update and made itself unavailable for a couple of hours

Generally not a bad system though...
