Well, I guess he meant that he will be checking out the game with his buddies in LAN shops, while waiting for the price to drop.

All the new modes in L4D2 sound crappy, especially scavenger mode. Realism mode doesn't really work either, because the whole concept of dismemberment to kill a zombie is for zombies (this means slow moaning undead), L4D uses rabies filled fast moving infected (which arn't technically zombies).

Overall L4D2 is not as glamorous as the original, but for the price of $35USD, who could resist?

"All the new modes, especially scavenger" is exactly one new mode: scavenger. And it sounds awesome, mind you. What do you dislike about the concept? To me it sounds like fast and frenetic action which forces the survivors to split up for a bit in order to get a good score.
And I wish Valve wouldn't have called the new difficulty "realism" as people tend to get hung up on that word and think the mode will supposed to be realistic. It's just going to be more difficult than expert, that's all.

All in all, the more that is revealed, the more I believe that L4D2 will probably be my favorite multiplayer-game ever. All major faults which prevented the first game from taking that spot will be fixed and we're getting a whole lot of new content. I can't wait!

One thing :

If they add the electric guitar, why didn't they add the electric bass, drumsticks or keyboard? A Korg Triton Extreme would have made an excellent weapon.

And there should be a SDK for people who want to rewire weapon meshes to look cool their way.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

The achievements have been revealed.

I agree with Mueti when he says that it's shaping up to be his favorite multiplayer game ever. My only complaint is that there won't seem to be the option to play as the original four survivors. I know it wouldn't make any sense story-wise, but I just can't imagine playing Left 4 Dead without Louis.

Oh, and the fact that they really did decide to make a female Boomer is kind of scary too.

Actually , if you pre-orders in Steam , you get -10% for the price . So instead of 49.99 $ (or € yeah i know with the conversion , they don't give a damn for EU ). , its 44.99 $ (€) and you'll be able to play the demo before the others who didn't pre-orders and you'll get an exclusive american's baseball .
Well , i feared that there'll be less players in this opus but after watching all the pre-orders , ow .. they should prepare a lot of servers not like the first opus .
Honestly, I think you're just in a state of denial, because that's the only plausible way I can describe your strange attitude and behavior. I found the protest against Left 4 Dead 2 silly from the get go, but they've already proven without a shadow of a doubt that Left 4 Dead 2 has more than enough content to justify itself as a sequel rather than just an "expansion pack". Besides, Valve did say that they plan to continue updating the original Left 4 Dead along with Left 4 Dead 2, so if you really are unsatisfied with the idea of the sequel, then no one is stopping you from staying with the original... yet then you go and say that you'll buy the sequel anyways. I am curious as to you what you think can be defined as a sequel, rather than just Left 4 Dead 1.5 though.

Besides, unless you're planning on getting both the PC and 360 version like myself, then I don't think there's any room to complain money-wise.

I really like the idea of Realism mode, especially since it seems to be a separate option that you can toggle on or off along with the difficulty of your choice. I'm expecting more obviously realistic changes to the game elements when it's on, such as a the removal of a three strikes and you're out incapacitation system when you run out of health, and replace it with just death after you run out of health once.

Personally, I like the idea of Scavenger mode more so than I did Survival mode at least. I like the whole general idea of getting rid of sitting in a corner and spamming/glitching your way to victory that Valve is seemingly trying to take with this game (changes to the finales and now the addition of this new mode). A major improvement, in my opinion, and it sounds a lot more fun.

Imo, a Survivor band type thing like that would be pretty amusing. Maybe one day...

He's probably thinking of K-On X L4D. Ritsu with a shotgun gets my vote, and Azusa with a Molotov is priceless.

News videos who introduce the new campaign "Hard Rain"
Seems good with a dark atmosphere .
The videos introduce the use of the bile bomb and the chainsaw .
So you can use the bile bomb on the tank then the horde will attack him .

http://www.l4dmods.com/index.php?opt...news&Itemid=13

Edit .

You can now dowload the demo .

Watching the prerender intro video made me realise that this game all about content, and not based on what made the original so good: methodological combat that each have weaknesses and perks.

Specifically I want to bring up, that at the end of the trailer you will see the mechanic dude holding what can only be described as a LAW (rocket launcher). Now how can this game fix the whole "tanks are pathetic as tanks" issue the first game had if you have a launcher that can either potentially 1-hit KO or stumble the tank leaving shotties to ravaged it.

Unrelated to what I just said, Hard Rain seems lame, not going to spoil what its about, but lets just say it involves a bit of deja vu. So technically there really is 4.5 campaigns rather than the advertised 5.

Edit: Just realised its a M79 granade laucher, but same thing applies.

Mugi should be getting a cake to throw. One hit kill on any monster it hits.

It takes alot of teamwork and patience to inch through every area. One way would be to sit near an ammo dump and keep putting down fire, then subsequently luring enemies to that ammo dump and repeating.

Ever heard of RUN? I once played a match with a couple of girls. My friend died defending his girlfriend (who got squashed anyway), and her best friend and I just ran all the way to a safehouse with a smoker and tank hot on our tail.

Quote:

If the special melee weapons do extra damage, I don't see why not. "Look that tank is alone! GET HIM!"

Well with all the new challenges and mods, I think it is needed. Otherwise it would be impossible to complete a few games.

Can we use them as bombs?

I forsee someone making a map with Ronald Mcdonald zombies.

Probably someone you have to chase throughout a stage. Something easy, like catch him and beat the heck out of him.

Wait, so there is a funfair map?

Just saw the new L4D 2 trailer and it is a must buy on my list, I always find it funny to see the stereotypical black coach and black girl especially because most of the time it is true and they say the funniest things sometimes. Like Louis in the 1st L4D "DO I LOOK LIKE ONE OF THEM?!"

Why isnt there a L4D 2 thread?

- Well , in one of the latest videos , they showed a survivor who throws a bile bomb who is boomer's vomit on the Tank . Then , the horde will attack him .
In my opinion , this item will make easier to kill the tank . Horde on him , he'll be busy to kill them , and you shoot all on him then end .



- Maybe yes .



- Dunno , don't know more about it .



- Well , you can talk about L4D 2 in this thread too .
