Looks like tons of fun. I think the concept is not original, but Vavle knew how to put it together nicely. For that, I need to give them some credit. Hoping this makes its way to the PS3 sometime year so I don't have to improve my PC's graphics card this holiday season with all the other games I need to buy. I trust Valve could make a good port, doesn't matter if it looks less detailed, things like that don't take the fun away, which is the emphasis on this game.

hey i dont like the keyboard for games at all, would a pc controller work for this game? i think the mouse is excellent for fps but the keyboard is garbage.

TheIneffableBob3321d ago

Left 4 Dead has native 360 controller support.

Bnet3433321d ago

Yeah, all steam games have gamepad support. Xbox 360 controller works great on PC.

Panthers3321d ago

PS3 controllers do to right? I think there is a way to get them to work.

Elvfam5113321d ago

yeah i use a ps3 controller for pc i use it for gears of war

this is all so weird... the things sony fans do to feel that they are not supporting Microsoft on any way shape or form... when is not waiting for 1 year for the game to come out on the PS3... or the PC... is buying a microsoft game on the PC and even using a PS3 controller... Why don't you guys buy a 360 scratch the name with marker and write Sony Playstation 4 on it... that way you do not have to miss out on the games you are going through all this hassle to avoid... and make believe is not an xbox 360.

STFU! with that fanboy sh!t? Besides why would anybody with a PS3 and a PC buy a 360 just to play this game? when they can just get it for the PC. Besides you know it will be much better on the PC. So fvck off fanboy! Dumb!

"hey i dont like the keyboard for games at all, would a pc controller work for this game? i think the mouse is excellent for fps but the keyboard is garbage."

I know what you mean, what I'd like is something to use with my mouse that allows for analog 'walking' in FPS games. Keyboard is not great for this, you are either moving or not. I remember splinter cell PC had a thing going on with the mouse wheel where you could have various speeds of movement, but its still not as nice as a gamepad.

Anyone who has played assassins creed will know how nice it is to have SO many different movement speeds just by using 1 thumbstick.

Hey bladestar, -->

thanks.

It's a little thing called value conscious consumers who don't want to deal with a potential 360 meltdown.

The 360 game library is strong, there is no doubt there.
But the console itself? I won't be touching it for sometime yet because a 3 year warranty isn't a selling point for me if the build quality is sub par.

That's where the PC comes in, It's not a hatred of MS (for me anyway). Many people here likely have a mid to high end PC that can run all of the software that is "Xbox Exclusive".

Keep in mind that this is not a fanboy rant, just the opinion of a well informed consumer.

EDIT: @ 1.11 - That's funny, I've had 2 friends that have had to put up with faulty Xboxs that weren't that old.
One for Disc read/HDD corruption and the other for the RROD.

You better tell them that the 360's problems are a thing of the past.
As far as me being a troll, you couldn't be further from the truth.
But have fun trying to continue this console war of yours.

Enjoy it on your PC, this game is made to be played on Xbox LIVE -- and with the new NXE, it will be terrific.

And, w/r/t '360 meltdown' -- thats nonsense. The heat issues were fixed in the middle of **LAST YEAR**.

You need to get some new FUD. You're old troll is worn out and broken.

Milky Joe3320d ago

How can anyone take offence at someone using a PS3 pad to play PC games? Seriously Bladestar, you're just looking for a fight, aren't you?

y0haN3319d ago

cherrypie Valve is a PC developer first, they don't even do the majority the 360 work in-house.

so, I'm okay with a keyboard, but I can understand why a controller would be more comfterable.

PoSTedUP3321d ago

because its easier and ive been using it for a very long time now ya know, the key board has too many spread out buttons for me to get use to (i dont have the time to get the hang of it, or i am too lazy XD) and i think the controller is better. but the controllers they have for pc can work for any game?

TheIneffableBob3321d ago

Left 4 Dead (and pretty much every other Valve game) don't use many keyboard keys. In L4D, on the keyboard, it's pretty just WASD, Ctrl to crouch, Spacebar to jump, E to use, Tab to show the scoreboard... and yeah, that's pretty much it. You'd need to have really small hands in order to have trouble playing this game.

Bodhi3321d ago (Edited 3321d ago )

Have none of you PC gamed before? You haven't been gaming right then, you have at least play on PC game before you can call yourself a basic gamer here people. I used to PC game, I got the Half Life 2 + CSS + HL2DM bundle and I played that a lot. Up until my video card started getting finnicky and started putting out less performance (I think my fan wasn't working fast enough) and eventually I couldn't deal with it anymore.

I picked up console gaming before PC gaming with the Sega Genesis and N64. I picked up console gaming again with the Xbox and the Xbox 360, the controller now has grown with me and I can play shooters better on the consoles now.

Left 4 Dead works magically with the controller, the only gripe with the controllers is there's no way you can turn around really fast without turning your sensitivity up which kills my aim. Left 4 Dead fixes this with the 180 degree spin on the RB, works wonders when 20 zombies are kicking and beating you down.

@PoSTedUP:

There's a possibility you'll be able to play with a 360 controller on your PC. If you have yourself a wired 360 controller, it's compatible with Windows and fully functional. I don't know if you actually need to install software for the controller or not, but Microsoft has installations for that if need be.

PoSTedUP3321d ago

true that, appreciate the info guys, now i wonder if my pc can run this game.... we will soon find out!

Sleebs3321d ago

@PoSTedUP:

Go to www.srtest.com and click on the drop down list, locate Left 4 Dead, and the site will automatically look into your hardware and tell you if you got the power for your PC.

PoSTedUP3321d ago (Edited 3321d ago )

iight i appreciate it, plus bubbles man.

You Have: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Controller) <---- this is my thing, it says i need a better video card XD. i might look into one, when i lived with my cuz he had a good one that ran gears of war, my computer is stock and i dont care too much about computer games.

mandykay3321d ago

Finally, an awesome zombie co-op. Boomer scared the bejesus outta me.
