LEFT 4 DEAD! OH MY GOOOOD!

Postby Greetings » Thu Nov 06, 2008 9:18 pm

I just saw some live play of a demo/beta kind of thing, and I just about had a valvegasm.

Is it possible to 'love' something that is inanimate and...a game.

Why do decent zombie games have to be released on 360? Third-party developers should release multi-platform.

Because Valve does stuff with PCs too, and since most PCs run on Windows it only makes sense that they'd make them for the 360.

You talk as if this is a issue...

I take it that you are very happy with your discovery, Snaddict.

Discovery that I made nearly 4 months or more ago. Its just now seeing the demo played live really brings out the idea of its next week release date.

hmmm...in the steam thing it says there is a left 4 dead demo but when I click it it flashes white for a sec then does nothing.
One time when I was high, I thought I was in an ambulance dying. Turns out I was just eating sherbert.

I think you have to have pre-ordered the game to play the demo.

Before the 11th anyhow.
The official release date for the demo is the 11th, but those who pre-ordered on Steam get early access.

Since I'm not into this preordering nonsense I pirated the demo. Have to say it was pretty fun, the only thing I hated was the fact that the so called "Advanced AI," would just put all the zombies behind me. Can't wait to try the demo online on the 11th.

It is. X-Box is wholly flawed. I'm always hearing about ppl's X-Box consoles breaking down.

Personally, I think a Wii version would have sucky graphics of epic proportions. And controls would be whacked... Maybe.
PS3, I ain't gonna get any prettier than what you already saw on the PC, because it's originally made for the PC. And one of the reasons people get PS3 is because of the purty gwafix.

I dunno, the X-Box has been the FPS box ever since it came out.

11th? I thought it was the 14th? And why the fuck doesn't Valve ever show commercials for games besides the orange box? Never saw any for the HL games on TV.

So I followed some nifty instructions posted on the Steam Forums and got to play the zombies.

They are so fragile. Except for the tank of course. And the tank is shitload of fun because running full speed and just knocking people and cars out of my way makes me feel like a rhino.

Boomer to me, seems the most fun, simply because I get to vomit on people. The Hunter can get anywhere on the map, but vs. survivors I don't think it would do that well unless a. a person goes off completely on their own or b. they're busy getting overrun by zombies. Which shouldn't be that unexpected. Just means that people will have to be very patient and very careful.

Smoker seems most versatile because they can drag people away, so it takes survivors a while to get to him. And if the survivors are even the slightest bit busy, then the smoker can just drag one of them from far away and into a crowd of angry zombies.

of course, I couldn't play against actual people, so I didn't really get to try out the zombies too much or find their limitations, but they seem really fun so far.

Well, I'll say this about it.

One very nice commercial.

Then you have gotten your book on the 360 from the Sony fanboys who don't know shit about the 360 since they never had one.

This demo was truly epic. I freaked when I saw it in the ''new demos'' section. I love watching the smoker drag people off if people don't save said person before full hanging. Managed to finish it on expert with some friends after dieing a lot.

The first time I ran into the witch I hadn't noticed her laying there and she just popped up and gave me the bitch slap of death.

Maybe you just haven't played enough?
I've played through the demo at least twice, co-op, and seen witches in both.
Counting all retries.
