The Icrontic Gaming crew played through the Left 4 Dead 2 demo, with one question on all of our minds: Is there enough content here to justify a sequel?
oh man. I wanna try the demo out after reading this. Looks like L4D2 definitely has alot more content. When does the Demo go live for everyone?
I think it goes live for everyone 1 week from the 27th. I played it last night, both with a friend in split screen and some online. Game was fun as heck, I love smashing zombie heads with my guitar.
It was fun but honestly, I hope Left 4 Dead 2 has more of a back story to the events that lead to the outbreak. I want the semblance of a story to tie it all together.
Cola stated “The melee combat alone is enough for me to consider it a new game.” -_- I can't understand this mentality at all. Adding Melee weapons are enough for people these days to spend $50/$60 on a game? It's another full priced DLC. I know I'm going to be a hypocrite and buy it, but come on.
Holy you didn't play the demo did you, I Loved it, its 1000 times better then L4D1, the melee weapons, theres also changing areas, I ran the first level and both times I had to change my route due to either the door being blocked off or a bung of crap in the way, not to mention the new special infected are a blast to try and fight, and the witch also moves around the map now instead of just sitting still. That and all of the new weapons changes things, I had the scar, *three shot burst* the AK which had more power but bad accuracy. The game itself is just so much more polished then the first game. Worth a full 60$ price to me. If you want to argue against a game not worth the price go to the sport games sections, leave great games like this alone.
The demo is awesome. I love how Valve reward their customers that pre order their game by giving them early exclusive access to the demo. I will be playing it up until the midnight release :D
I'm way more excited about playing L4D2 now. The melee stuff sounds awesome.
Takin gross to a whole new level.
I actually really want to buy this now. Win! I love Steam.
I'm kinda looking forward to this game now. I love zombie-ass-fxcking!!!! LOL
I'm going broke here. With this, Forza 3, Modern Warfare 2, Uncharted 2, Demon's Souls, Ratchet & Clank, God of War Collection. Seriously, stop this already
Ya the demo is so much fun!
Is it on live yet?
I love how quickly it happened. So many people complained that L4D2 would be rehash and garbage, and not a true sequel. And then they played it. Incredibly, opinions shifted rather quickly.
I doubt that the ones who had pre-ordered it were the same ones complaining. You don't generally buy things you don't want.
