Thanks for posting. I'll hold out until L4D is $5 again, though.

Was it offered for $5? Whatever the case may be, I'm totally waiting for the Holiday Sale, at the very least. These are certainly nice prices, though.

Steam is making my "skimping until the Holiday Sale" plan difficult, though.

Yes. But on relatively low settings. So don't expect to get smooth gameplay with a high resolution, especially with that GPU. But it should still be able to run it.

how bad does it look on low settings? should i go for the deal or wait??


i was also waiting on some deals for the xbox 360 on these games but 7 dollars each for both sounds good.

If I were you I'd invest in a better computer. But here's how it should look like: Low Res Shot
Notice how the gun looks bland with no detail. That kind of stuff is what you'll get at Low resolution.

It won't look much different than the 360 version. I was surprised how bad the 360 version looked compared to the PC version. PC FTW :)

I'd wait until one of the holiday sales though if you are unsure, as it is almost guaranteed to be just as cheep and probably cheaper.

It'll run really poorly, if you don't mind like 800x600 resolution low settings, then I guess.

Yup, $5.09 each if you bought the bundle last time around. I bet they'll hit around the same price during the Christmas sale.

Still though, these games are awesome! I recommend picking at least one of them up for $10, then waiting for the other to go on sale again.

Given that the games have never been that low before, I wouldn't count on it.

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

I think I'll bite on 2. I'll make up the $5 I could save by waiting by skipping a trip to subway. This is a double dip for me cuz I already have it for 360, but after playing for a while I remembered ho much I hate the xbox live community. Long live steam.

Looks like those who said it would be perfectly playable at low settings are right.

Why isn't this listed under cross-platform play? I want to grab it to play with my friend, but I want to make sure him being on a PC and me being on a Mac won't be an issue.

I'd assume cross-platform play refers to 360 and PC, like Shadowrun.

You can play on your Mac while your friend plays on PC.

Though I haven't personally verified this, according to the L4D blog and other internet sources, they are cross-platform compatible:
