the Mac version of L4D2 is also coming this week.  I'm guessing this means it'll be the weekend deal too.

The nice thing about this is that you can actually pick who dies so it doesn't necessarily have to be Bill.

I have a feeling this will go bad for Louis.

Now I wonder who they're going to replace Bill with, he was actually a favorite of mine. Grumpy ol' war vet, who happens to be wearing my favorite color.

About the DLC, if you have both L4D1 and 2, are the DLC identical to each other? Is there an advantage to play the L4D2 version of the DLC instead of the one for the first game?

You know, there's just something not right about Bill using a katana.  Zoey with a chainsaw, however, is undiluted awesome.

Now, Bill with a machete makes sense.

And somehow, Francis with a golf club seems right because that's how I imagine Francis would actually use a golf club.  To bash brains in.

The only thing I could see fitting Louis would be an expresso machine.

I don't know, I could see Bill having a katana as a souveneir from his time in Asia.

maybe Louis could beat zombies to death with his iPad.

Except he's a Vietnam vet.  The machete, sure but not the katana.

Special Delivery

This Mutation is a variation of Hard Eight. Spawn timers have been removed and the Special spawn cap has been raised to ten. The changes sound subtle, but they really mix up the gameplay.

I played some this past weekend for the first time in ages. I think my team tried the last mission about 25 times before we finally completed it.

For whatever reason, the motion sickness plaguing me the last time I played some months ago seems to have subsided.

I skimmed through almost this entire thread of 6 pages and there were really almost no impressions.  Most of it seemed to be bitching about the price.  So what is/was the consensus on the game?  Did anyone play it solo?  It sounds like the bots were really poor?  Was the story good?

I've only actually played a few of the missions (mostly the DLC ones) but so far the story seems to be 'kill zombies'. The AI is OK, but I think most of the fun came out of co-op with other players.

    Playing with friends is by far the best mode, but I've played L4D2 solo a few times.   The bots aren't too bad as far as their pathfinding.  I've only seen one get stuck a couple of times on fan made maps.    If you do play a solo game you can count on having to take point the entire time as the bots will generally just follow you around, but are at least fairly good about sharing health packs and pill bottles when you reap the inevitable consequences of being allways out front . Their marksmanship is pretty good, so they can at least watch your back, but they will not pick up any of the thrown weapons like pipe bombs or Molotov's, so that cuts your groups killing power down by a big margin.   

The story is decent.  While the game is broken up into individual campaigns,  they follow a storyline that ties them together pretty well,  and there is an actual ending.

This site has a lot of great user made maps and campaigns.   Helm's Deep Reborn has to be experienced to be believed!    Plus there are some decent ports of the original L4D campaigns as well as some completely new campaigns (Diescraper Redux is nice)

apparently they are giving away Left 4 Dead 2 for free via Steam:

Quote
To celebrate the holidays in a special way this year, Left 4 Dead 2 will be free until 10AM PST 12/26.

It will be free as in, grab it now, pay no money, and it is yours to keep forever – FOR FREE!

To claim your L4D2 gift, all you need to do is install it.

If you don’t install, it goes back to its regular price and you miss out! The zombie apocalypse is more fun with friends so make sure to tell all your mates to install it as well.

Yeah, this deal has basically killed Steam, which sucks, because I wanted to actually get on their to redeem a couple gift cards.

It wasn't that deal, it was an issue with their UPS system which is... ironical.  icon_wink

LOL! I'd read elsewhere that was the problem and just linked the first bit of news I found that supported that without checking the date.  retard
