Very rarely does the opportunity arise to say this sentence, so I'm going to take it while it's available...

I agree with Hitler.

Awesome, that post started a new page so I now look like a racist due to lack of context.

If it makes you feel better mate, I always thought you were racist so that post doesn't really change anything.

I guess I'm just looking more and more forward to NS2 now.

I joined the L4D2 Boycott Steam group. As much as I want a fixed L4D, I'm not willing to pay for it again.

Mmh, go Hitler! I agree with the general sentiment here. Honestly, they _really_ should have had the 4 campaings at the launch. Didn't they even say (in the dev commentary) that the versus mode was the original playmode? Might have been just me hallucinating.

What they've announced just doesn't seem worth it. L4D is a fun game most often, but it has some fundamental problems. Or rather I have with it. I guess the biggest issue is the lack of infected progress. The little there is, is often invalidated with medpacks. Given that there are still plenty of techincal issues, who's to say L4D2 will be any different? I certainly don't believe it will.

While good new maps are always nice, the SDK is probably more important in that respect. 3 new enemies and the mêlée weapons. Doesn't exactly sound like 50€ to me. And what with NS2 on the way, I can't really see myself buying L4D2 until it's dirt cheap and is a finished game.

I'm not paying £30 more to shoot clowns with a fat black man.

Still pissed at Valve.

£20 isn't bad, considering L4D was something like £35. I'd probably be in for that once I have a bit more money kicking around.

Snb - Last I heard, L4D2 has been banned in Australia... what the hell chance does Germany have ?

Censored version is 18+. It doesn't matter though if a UKer gifts me (which also has the rather nice side effect of me saving literally 50%).

Apparently that's because Australia have decided that L4D isn't suitable for children.... perfectly acceptable, it isn't.

But Australia don't have an 18+ rating for computer games because apparently over there computer games are only for children.

Silly aussies.


Also, I'm up for going in for the 4 for 3.. or whatever it is.

new game mode revealed

Scavenge mode challenges players to compete in round-based games of up to 8 players (Survivors vs. Infected). The Survivors must battle both the Infected and the clock as they collect gas cans to refuel a generator located in each map. Every can the Survivors pour into the generator scores their team a point and adds time to the clock.

On defense, the Infected team plays as the boss Infected (including the new Spitter, Jockey, and Charger). They must keep the Survivors from fueling the generator by attacking them, destroying the gas cans, or running out the clock. During a round, each team gets an opportunity to play both sides, with the round going to whichever team successfully delivers the most cans.

Perhaps only Jeff and Obraxis will get this... but...

THAT'S BEES !

I mean, it's fuel and zombies rather than energy and robots, but it's still bees !

If the petrol tanks start leaking as soon as you pick them up, I think we should sue. :)

'But, as we wrap up our playtime, David Ellis notices a mysterious option in the menu as we wait for a new match to start: "Realism mode." I ask Faliszek, and he coyly comments, "that's a special modifier that we forgot to hide for this demo." We then ask Valve VP of Marketing Doug Lombardi, and he quips that it's something for the super hardcore player, and slightly elaborates, "Take Portal for example: We had our best internal players who could blow through that game in about 30 minutes, but within weeks of launching it we had people on YouTube beating [the testers'] times by 10 minutes or more. Realism is for those players."'

Or maybe not, since they're finally making things for our level now... I expect this will just be something like "headshots only" and no hud, like that mod for L4D1, but it'll be something to play with.
