Zombie Killing (Left 4 Dead)

Did anyone pick up Left 4 Dead for half off this weekend? Actually, it looks like it's still going on at the moment. Sale's over folks!

Downloading it now. I meant to decide whether I wanted to get it last night but I forgot so I am lucky the offer is still going. One of those games where I wanted to try it out but didn't want to pay full price, so this was a perfect deal for me.

I dunno. It looks really fun, and that's a great price, but I don't really think I want to drop any money on a game right now.

If there's anything I'm going to buy in the near future that is game-related, it will be a Nintendo DS.

Yeah, I posted about this in the Very Good Things thread, and also on Twitter. I haven't had a chance to play it yet though.

Got it last night too and got to play it a little bit before going to bed. It's like Half-Life mixed with old school Resident Evil. I can definitely imagine it'd be a blast to play with other people ;D




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

While you're at it, join and share your steam names.


So far, I've completed the No Mercy campaign. I haven't tried the others or versus mode.

Definitely worth it. Or you could go for the premium-priced DSi coming out soon.

I'll have to hook up with some of you later for L4D, just finished downloading but I'm in class for a few more hours. Should be fun if we can get a group of four.

Hmm. I was just looking at the DSi. I'm interested in it, for sure, but it would cost 80 dollars more than a DS Lite off of Craigslist. It has some neat functionality, and I like the idea of the web browser, but I was planning on getting an M3 card with a DSlite, so I'd already have the mp3 player functionality, and I was told you can install Opera on it. If that's true then I'm not sure the DSi is worth it.

Been playing since the release, and it's great fun if you're playing with people around your skill level who are interested in working together. I suggest that you get a microphone if you're planning to play online though, since it's a pretty integral part of the teamwork.

I've got it on both systems sadly. But I'm definitely preferring the PC version at the moment. Steam ID is tie23, add me why don't you?

Going the I don't pay for games route, eh? No, but seriously I already have a DS and I probably would have gotten a DSi, but lack of GBA cart port is an issue with me, I have lots of GBA games. Back on-topic, I'd get L4D, but I'm tired of killing zombies and I don't like Steam.

I gave in and purchased it.

The opening cinematic was ****ing awesome.

I only got the chance to play it for a few minutes last night, but hopefully this weekend I'll really be able to try it out.

My steam account is TheSeeker417, if anyone is interested.

Played through the No Mercy campaign today, and I have to say, the game kicks ass. Very glad I got it for half price. I'm willing to break my Steam annonymity to play some co-op with you guys (as long as I get to play as Zoey of course ). My Steam name is kelly087.

Remember that in campaign, if the tank incapacitates one of your teammates, you can melee it in order to make it chase you instead. Then someone else can help the incapacitated player up, and your chances of survival increase dramatically.

Also, set the tank on fire and try your best to avoid it until it dies.

I played some 4v4 verses last night. I sucked at it, but it was definitely a lot of fun. I'd be in for it.

A few of us had some Versus going yesterday, and it was pretty awesome. Then we started getting disconnected from servers and it went downhill.


You people should log into steam so we can get some games going.

Oh yeah, the ending on Death Toll was sad. Only one of us got away. I believe one died during the finale from a Tank. When the boat came I got jumped by a hunter and got saved with 1 hp left. As I was trying to heal a single common horde touched me and I went down. I believe it was Anthony who saved me from that hunter ran off as I said "leave me!" He got taken down also while the last survivor got on the boat. Twas a sad day.

Happens often and is still very epic. All in all that seems more fun to me, but I maybe just be a weirdo :P

Yeah, I have been vote-kicked as soon as I join on occasion, and that was with only two other people on the server. Did they want to play or not?

Dunno why but TF2 is so much better on public servers than L4D (unless they have instant re-spawn or other stupid rules on). Of course private servers are clearly the way forward.
