John of GamingNexus takes a look at the Left 4 Dead demo that's hit the scene on the PC and comes away wanting more.
I know that Left 4 Dead is all about the co-op, but it will have to really impress me. I'm currently playing 8-player co-op in Resistance 2 with 75 enemies in the area at a time and I doubt Left 4 Dead can top that.
"I think Valve has another winner on their hands here." Nice..Valve is great ..lets hope they deliver again
Wow, the same company created Half-Life, Counter Strike, Team Fortress, Portal and now this! They remind me of one other company... Blizzard; they're the best at what they do.
Actually CS was made by two guys in '99 as a half life mod. It later received Valve's support and evolved. Good ol' times with beta.
Damn it...November is an expensive month.
But it is also the best month for everything else think about it....
Pros for november: Obama+Left 4 Dead, cons: college coursework deadlines.. :(
i put it this way: id>>Epic Epic==Infinity Wars Infinity Wars>>>Insomniac VALVE>>>>>> >>>>>>>> ;>>>>>>id
Valve = King of shooters Blizzard = King of RPGs
Another AAA game exclusively for xbox360 this is definatly going to be a great year for all Xbox360 owners.
What about for the desperate N4G sony fanboys ? :( oh welp let them continue to watch BLU-RAY on their ps3 but they can play Resistance but they should just play halo 3 for that matter since you know... Resistance is one big knock off of halo.
lol, its for PC too so its not an exclusive and PC > 360 :)
Because playing games on my large TV is better than playing on a (relatively) small monitor. Plus, more of my friends have Xbox 360's than can run it on their computers.
Left 4 Dead is going to be another killer title for the 360. A lot of excitement is building up for this game.
I can't wait to play this on my new 26" PC monitor. One thing Source is great for, low PC requirements!
Ill be getting it for my 360.Whats most important is that we buy the game so that valve can keep providing us with more AAA titles.
Yeah Left 4 Dead looks to be a game that doesn't need crazy graphics cards and should work on most pcs but I rather play this game on my 50 inch plasma than my stuffy computer room.
this game is giong to be the sh!t...
Wow, talk about L4D.. Don't bring GoW2 or R2 into this.. damn.
why does it have to be a console war all the time? i have the best of both worlds and i never limit myself from playing games
Bubbles for being one of the only gamers on this site.
silly console fanboys, it's always the year of the PC
Fallout 3, Far Cry 2, Dead Space, Crysis Warhead, Spore ... you want more??
i love going to meta critic and 3 out of the top 4 games rated are all Valve titles. stupid Valve.... /sarcasm
if only this came several days before wotlk...well, guess will around to it eventually, plays very nicely, as expected of valve
...and am disappointed this is not coming to the PS3 as the survivor co-op mode sounds fantastic. I have yet to see the definitive zombie movie...although 28 Days Later came close the final act let it down somewhat.

I hate the bitter fanboy banter over this game because it's only coming to the 360/PC. Valve is, bar none, the gods of all thing FPS. Enjoy your dumbed down console FPS crap.
Valve king of FPS? there has never been a truer statement made in the history of gaming.
I will enjoy it. Have fun pointing and clicking.
We will scar, enjoy your autoaim.
im totally happy so far with the demo. i played thru it first alone with bots to get a feel for it, then went online with a friend and it was great fun. the game doesnt quite catch the atmosphere quite like HL2 does because of the friends being around, but its a great, intense battle against a huge horde of zombies. the PC matchmaking i believe will get a better browser fix then whats in place now. but overall....the experience has been worth it.
I've yet to get the online play to work...too few dedicated servers and the people that try to host do not have firewalls correctly configured. Played single player and it is a blast.
