Back 4 Blood: Helped or hindered by Left 4 Dead's legacy?

This week on Gaming: The Podcast we're talking Back 4 Blood, Turtle Rock's spiritual successor to Left 4 Dead.

John Robertson and Stace Harman discuss where it sits in relation to Left 4 Dead's legacy, how well it balances its carnage, the nature of its progression and deck building systems and what our respective responses are emotionally and in terms of pure entertainment.

Definitely helped.

"Devs behind Left 4 Dead making a game in the same vein of it, but different".

B4B is a nice balancing act of new and old. Enjoyed the beta, and plan to play it tomorrow.

The game is tough in a great way. Playing to earn better cards is awesome and the game is so well balanced. The variety of the levels is great with purposeful missions rather than the linear run-through. All welcome additions and lend to replay-ability. It’s polished as well. Polished and balanced is an ancient art lol

I Just want B4B to do good enough to give Valve a nudge to get their asses working on Left 4 Dead 3 12 years too late for that sequel but I will continue to wait because I love Left 4 Dead.

The thing is, the guys who made those games great are now working on this.

We've seen what happens when Valve lets outside parties have free reign with their IP. The only time it wasn't abysmal was Black Mesa - the Halo 1 remake.

Haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but playing left 4 dead on the 360 with some friends was probably one of the funnest time I had in a co-op game.

According to some L4D2 is a "masterpiece" and can't be bettered, how ignorant can you get.

Anything can be approved upon, but millions of people have spoken, and consider it one of the best co-op/multiplayer experiences ever released.

That said, if simple comments on the internet gets you worked up like this, you should probably step back from the internet for a while.
