You might as well wait for Left 4 Dead 2 if you're buying for it for the 360.

you cant really compare those two... Just because they both have "zombies" in them, doesnt mean they're in the same genre

Yes the good RE games (Back when it was zombies, not mutated spaniards and africans) were more Horror/puzzle games (Still fun though)
L4D is just a run N' gun, kill everything and get to the checkpoint.

versus got old quick, and survival was a waste of the time it took to download it. Sure killing people as the tank is fun, but other then that versus is old news.

But versus is the best part of the game!
If you deny that then you have no friends.

Either that or you have no friens that play L4D, which is my case. Random parties of 12 year olds got old, and with only 3 friends that played it on a sub-normal basis, versus got old. (Especially when we go to join a group and get kicked in the lobby for being the infected team.)

The players take on the role of Special Infected (Hunter, Smoker, Boomer, Tank but not the Witch)

it's fun, but it does get old after a while...

lol, Asmo...

I've gotten ten 25-damage pounces in Crash Course and NO FUCKING ACHIEVEMENT. I've done it FOUR TIMES in a private game. FOUR.

What the fuck?

Same bloody thing with Smash Hit...

oooh new stuff

kotaku wrote:Valve says the sole purpose of Left 4 Dead 2's new multiplayer mode, Scavenge, is to provide the game "quicker, even more frantic gameplay" than the versus mode has to offer.

That's hard to imagine given the blinding speed at which us games journalists tore through the normal versus mode while waiting for the developer to set up Scavenge matches. But two lightning-quick rounds a lot of incoherent howling later, the whole thing had gone by so fast that I almost didn't grasp what had happened. Luckily, I wrote it all down.

What Is It?
Scavenge is a new multiplayer mode in Left 4 Dead 2's lineup. It still pits four Survivors against a zombie horde dotted with special class Infected. But the catch is that the Survivors have to gather as many of 16 cans of gasoline throughout a map to fill up a generator while the zombies do their best to stop them, kill them or destroy the gas cans. The whole thing is timed and each gas can fed to the generator adds 20 seconds to the clock. The mode plays to three rounds with victory going to whoever got more cans total (and if there's a tie, it goes to who got the most in the least amount of time).

What We Saw
I played two matches of Scavenge on the Xbox 360 in a noisy club with a slew of other games journalists.

How Far Along Is It?
The game is out November 17.



What Needs Improvement?
It's WAY Too Easy to Generator-Camp: The map we were playing on had the all-important generator planted in the bottom of a drained pool at a motel. There was absolutely nothing to prevent an Infected from climbing into the pool and camping the generator so that the survivors couldn't successfully fill the generator (which takes about as much time as executing a heal or reviving a partner).

The Spitter Is All-Powerful: Gas cans are vulnerable to gunshots as you might assume they would be. However, they're especially vulnerable to the Spitter's saliva after they've been picked up. I don't mind that the Infected can rain on the Survivor's gas parade, of course, but I think it's not fair that the Spitter gets to have all the satisfaction of exploding a can of gas in a Survivor's arms with a well-aimed expectoration. Also, the Spitter can camp the generator without actually being there just by spitting in front of it to block a Survivor from getting close enough to pour the gas.

What Should Stay The Same?
Strategic Gas Can Placement: Aside from camp-vulnerable position the generator was in, the gas cans were spread out in a perfect way to challenge Survivors. Here and there, there would be clusters of three cans up on a roof you could throw down to waiting Survivors for a quick run back to the generator. But eventually, the cans come down to singletons spread out so far from each other you have to split up to get them in a timely fashion.

It's Fun And It's Frantic: I didn't think it was possible to speed up the experience of Left 4 Dead's versus mode – but there you have it. Scavenge goes by extremely fast (hence the three-round setup) and it's all the more fun for it. You're still getting all the weapons and desperate give-and-take of switching between Infected and Survivor factions that you would normally have. But at the same time, you're savoring it in an entirely different, gas-soaked way.

Final Thoughts
The katana is your best friend. I'm just saying.

The easiest way to get it is to go up to him, throw a moltov, and tell your teammates to keep running, never looking back.
One time when I was high, I thought I was in an ambulance dying. Turns out I was just eating sherbert.
