Left 4 Dead
Two Million. That's how many copies of Valve's Left 4 Dead 2 have been sold since the game's release just two weeks ago. Can you imagine collectively how many zombies have been slain? Staggering!
The zombie horde is back and in full effect, and four more survivors have risen from the carnage to help gamers across the world combat these walking pus-brain bags of shit. We've got the skinny on what you can expect during this latest zombie apocalypse.
What with Left 4 Dead 2 now on store shelves and taking up the majority of our free time, have you ever wondered what this maniacal game would have looked like if it had been for the original Nintendo Entertainment System?
Valve Software announced yesterday that a new DLC pack for the original Left 4 Dead is due in September. ‘Crash Course’ is a new chapter to the game, set between the original ‘No Mercy’ and ‘Death Toll’ campaigns.
Since the announcement of Left 4 Dead 2 fans have been in a bit of an uproar, and understandably so. While amazing, Left 4 Dead is a bit lean in terms of content, and consumers haven't been shy at all letting developer Valve know how they feel.
Fresh out of the Microsoft E3 press conference comes the news that last years best horror game is going to get a sequel THIS year. A short trailer shown revealed a New Orleans setting, and our new cast of survivors will be grabbing pots, pans, and yes, power tools, to help them in their escape from presumably the same zombie crisis we saw last year.
As you well know, the best damned zombie game on the planet is getting an upgrade soon in the form of DLC (that's downloadable content for you non-gamers), and the lucky bastards at IGN.com got to preview it.
It's no secret my favorite game of the past year is without question Left 4 Dead. Lots of folks have been complaining that it was on the short side of the fence, but to me? Killing zombies never gets old. Still, for the complainers out there Valve is set to deliver.
There's no question Left 4 Dead is my candidate for Game of the Year. It provides hours of zombie-killing mayhem with, for me at least, an endless amount of replay value, but according to developer Valve, we've got lots of goodies coming to enhance an already great game via DLC!
More video has surfaced from the video game that I can honestly say is my most anticipated of the year, Left 4 Dead. This is the game zombie fans have been waiting for, and if you have any doubts just spend a few minutes playing the demo that's available right now!
For a lucky few of you, tomorrow is a good day to be dead; that’s when Valve releases their public demo of Left 4 Dead, their new co-op zombie game which hits stores November 17th. To celebrate, Valve has release the first 15 minutes of gameplay, which you can feast upon below!
We’ve talked before about the option to play as the boss zombies in Left 4 Dead, but it was starting to look like that might not happen. First of all the option was removed from the co-op mode to prevent anyone from coming in and ruining the fun of the survivors. Then a new competitive mode where you took turns playing as humans and zombies was talked about, though it wasn’t guaranteed to make it into the shipping version of the game.
Well Sony and Nintendo didn?t really have much for us horror fans at their conferences, which is a shame since both have high profile horror titles heading to their systems, but that doesn?t mean that we don?t still have a stack of stuff to update you on.
