haven't had much of a chance to get back to this until tonight, and I'm about to say fuck it. I just lost 2 characters:
one due to zombie appearing out of nowhere in areas I know were cleared, in this case the bastard was suddenly behind me in a dead end alley where there was no place he could have come from unless he walked through a wall; I was dealing with another zombie in front of me and suddenly I'm getting hit from behind.
second while I was running from a horde and went to open a door only to discover that the game decided it needed to spring the 'loading' notice on me instead of opening it up to an area I had just been in. apparently it is something that can happen randomly, as I found out on GameFAQ's
In some instances, trying to open that door results in a loading time, which
means you have to wait for the loading to finish before the door will even
open. This is frustrating as hell, but if it happens, quickly equip your pistol
and get your back to the wall. Pick off the zombies from afar until the door
comes open. It may be a waste of ammunition, but it's a necessary waste if you
want to survive.
great going devs, nice way to randomly screw players over using the game engine.
and seriously, and electricity spewing zombie? I was assuming this game was going to have a bit more 'realistic' zombies and not Left 4 Dead rejects......
