Phoronix: Valve's Giving Away L4D2 As A Christmas Present
While ardent Linux gamers have likely already heard and own a copy, for those that didn't hear yet Valve's latest kindness, the Linux-friendly entertainment company is giving away their very popular Left 4 Dead 2 game today and tomorrow as a Christmas present to gamers...
Well it was nice from Steam. Only that their servers couldnt handle the load.
I was about to buy Day of Defeat and for a few hours wasnt able to complete the transaction because the connection timed out. Eventually i was able to get both DoD and L4D2. They should have planned for this more thoroughly. Letting your whole store go down in Christmas because of freeloaders is bad for business.
What you are waiting to get DOTA2 and Team Fortress 2 ?!?
They are also F2P for a long long time
Thx Valve and Michael...excelent Xmas gift
BTW; if we have Net traffic limits and are reaching limit for this period, fear not, we don't need actually to download it today.
Just hit button in Store to get L4D2 for free...the actual download won't start right away and you can install it later
No, it's just been a long time since I've gamed, and all of the titles I own on Steam are old and made by companies that are unlikely to ever port them to Linux. That is, until I added L4B2 to the collection.
