The cries on the Steam boards of "not enough" and "too little too late" really annoy me. They promised free content and they are releasing free content... what they hell are you really complaining about?

When I mention that we have had tons of patches and a new mode, with new redesigned maps for that mode, people usually counter with "yeah well survivor sucks so it doesn't count."

I personally found survivor to be fun as hell, and it's basically all my best friend and I play now... I had some epic all nighters with that mode. Just because YOU don't like it doesn't mean it magically doesn't count as new content.

Same thing with this new campaign... it is built to be shorter, and they will likely release three over time to bridge all the main campaigns... sounds awesome to me, a short campaign when I'm not in the mood for something epic. But nooooooo... people complain about that too.

It just annoys me SO much.

It's like that one idiot that was in here a few months ago who was whining that the TF2 update was a few days late.

Yes, let's complain that a completely free update, which the company is doing for your benefit, hasn't been launched on exactly the day, although they don't even need to release it in the first place.

People act like such children. It's really annoying.

Yeah, that was a pretty lame attempt at a joke.

OT, really looking forward to this, but I do wish it were longer. No biggie as the community is moving pretty quickly.

Some fantastic maps already released, more coming.

It is annoying but valve knows what they are doing in terms of marketing their products. Every time they have dlc they also do a free weekend and sales jump by a crazy amount. 200% in some cases I have seen.

So it isn't completely for our benefit, and valve is making money. Which I am glad they do or there wouldn't be anyone left who didn't treat the pc community like an afterthought.

Well it works both ways.
Gabe had this talk at GDC or something showing significant increase in profit on lowering prices, since sales go up that much more.
So everyone wins.

And as always, you need money to make more games, and in Valves case, more content for existing games.. not everyone keep adding stuff like they do.
So, they get more money, we get more games and content.

Dont think they have much say in how DLC delivery on the 360 works.
Prolly cant release for free.
