Pre-Load Your L4D2 — Because It's More than 6 Gigs

Left 4 Dead 2's feeling kind of left out in all this advance game-havin' madness. So for those who've ordered it on Steam, remember you can pre-load the sucker and let it sit on your hard drive until Nov. 17.

The option to pre-load became active on Friday. Why would you want to do this? Well the download is 6.37GB, which is an overnight download. Clearly, doing so now means you don't have to spend a ton of time waiting on a download on release date, when the rest of normal society is bumrushing the servers, too. Of course, the rest of normal society could be bumrushing the servers now, how should I know.

If you haven't ordered it yet, remember it's 10 percent off via Steam. And you get Bill's hat for Team Fortress 2.
