SlapStic.com owner Ryan Rigney runs into a game-ending glitch on more than one occasion in Left 4 Dead. We must demand a patch now! Skip to about 4:30 in the video to see the problem.
Oh dude. That sucks.
LOL Xbox 360 games are riddled with glitches and frame rate issues!!
Lol okay. *coughlaircough* WHATWHOSAIDTHAT?!?
this is his christmas present, NICE TO KNOW!
game looks fun, only on xbox360... oh wait...
Final Fantasy 13 tekken 6 will be fun, only on PS3...oh wait... lol silly dr0id
of course they will be fun, they were ps3 exclusives silly wabbit.
Oh wow. That must have sucked. If that was in versus mode then that was about EIGHT whole levels in. All wasted..
I read somewhere that the infected can actually push those trolleys like that... I wonder if that's what happened?
It was fixed in the PC version very shortly after the exploit was found. Expect a 360 patch in 2010.
yea it's done by a hunter just attacking the trolley. i witnessed it while my cousin was playing a couple days ago. he was infected and this other person was up there doing it from the very beginning. the survivors got stuck there for like 10 mins or so then my cousin decided to move it. not a glitch but very cheap exploit of hunter's ability to move stuff.
OOOO that sucks. I hope they fix it up before I play...even if it is 'not a glitch' it isn't fun gameplay...
Huh? a high scoring xbox 360 game with a major glitch that didn't cause the reviews to slip? no way?
Still jealous I see
He wants l4d bad.
@ arrrgh... you hit it right on the money. its the same with patches/fixes that are the norm for developers nowadays. when you put your product in the hands of smart gamers they do things you could not have ever imagined as a developer.
I'm not dogging your point, which I do agree with in terms of things that can happen. Maybe you mean that the zombie that pushes the cart can get killed before the cart can be pushed away.
just a never ending zombie type of thing? whats the incentive to keep playing? is there leveling/abilities? from what i have seen and the demo, its just go to saferoom, kill, find safe room, kill. A fairly shallow game. Why do it feel like your a window on rails? is there no weight or physics to this game? the appeal must be the co op
Quoting the first comment on Slapstic, "get the PC version that has been patched 3 times already to fix little bugs. Anybody who bought the 360 version of L4D are going to get the same support from valve as the orange box... NONE." You're playing with fire purchasing non-PC versions of Valve's titles.
I thought it was just the PS3 version of The Orange Box that remains unpatched. I guess Valve really doesn't care about consoles afterall. No biggie, though. I have STEAM, so I'll probably get this soon.
Am I misinformed? Could someone name the problems for the 360 Orange Box? I cannot think of any.
I don't get it ? They were stuck in the elevator for a few minutes then the zombie moved the trolley because it entered the elevator and that was that'' ?? Am i missing something ?
this happens in every match i play in now, easy to get out of thoe. just make sure 1 of your team mates has a pipe bomb on them. Then get them to throw it on the floor next to the generator blocking the elevator( inside the elevator) then stand back, it should blow it out the way. believe me iv had to do every bloody time i play this level!
That guy is a sucky ass shot, he shot his teamates more than the zombies. He also waisted like 20 rounds in one zombie, and never helped his team out.
Is it game ending as far as that one particular day or do you always get stuck there? If It's a freak occurrence I wouldn't hold your breathe for a patch. Still crappy don't get me wrong.
Another game with a major glitch. Isnt this the Company that bashed the Ps3 for being hard to develop for? Maybe they are just stupid.
How is that a major glitch? Nothin really happened that stopped them from playing. They eventually got out, so no biggie, really. Although, it'd be nice to see that kind of thing be fixed.
I have played this game a 100 times through the first campaign which this vid is from and never, ever seen this glitch. I do want to though because I am sure you can shoot past the obstruction which will help get the 53,000 kill achievement without threat of attack from zombies.
Players can move the box. Its not a glitch just a cheap trick.
played it on PC and it was good. only play a few lvls cause my hands are made for PS3 controllers.
i swear i can hear a tank in that video....like a tank can block doorways with cars....which isnt a glitch its great strategy.
This happened to me once. It's a cheap exploit but it's not easy or quick to set up. Honestly if you giving the other team enough time to do this out and your friend might want to move thru the level quicker. However, a patch would be appreciated.
Just a "cheap" tactic that can be used to block the entrances....and guess what, I know of 3-4 other areas where the hunter can move an object to block an entry point. Guess what though, the players can eventually move the item. The OP of this video that thinks it is a glitch is a total noob. Most of the people I have played with online know of these objects that can be moved and most people choose not to do it as it makes the game boring.
Basically, as your playing as an infected, if you quickly run all the way up to the area outside the elevator, you can hit that engine thing in front of the elevator. It takes some time but it eventually gets there and you will have lost all of your chapter privledges e.g. points from downstairs. And it isnt a game ending glitch, it can actually be moved. If a survivor has a pipe bomb, they can blow it out the way or, if an infected starts trying to hit it even further into the elevator, this triggers some form of map error, in which then the survivors can also move it. So basically, the survivors have the ability to move it but only when an infected are, so you have to be quick. Its a pretty funny glitch however pointless. Ive done it many times and had it done to me many times also. I really dont think a patch is neccessary. People complain about how there arent enough levels and stuff, this little strategy just alters the chapter a little and makes it more fun. Its not as if its easy for the infected to kill you anyway because your in such a confined space, so the majority of people wont bother.
HAHAHAHA thats so lame!!! How can this be a game ending glitch??? That object and any other obstruction(Ive yet to try it on Forklifts though!) for that matter can be easily moved with a well placed pipe bomb. Man i tell you some of these peeps now a days are a bunch of drama queens!
I don't really understand what glitch were supposed to see in the video i went to 4:30 i don't see anything what am i supposed to seeing?
Sorry for the late reply BUT the SO CALLED game ending glitch is where they blocked the elevator exit with a Generator.
all infected can do it tend to find its the levels on the NO MERCY campaign that have the trollys and forklifts that can be pushed. played a game last night and on the rooftop bit when you go up the lift theyd pushed one infront of the door. then also two more infront of doors its getting annoying coz its happening in every game now
And this is where you have to use the good old noggin, fuuny thing is that the exact same people that B&$^ and moan about this little problem are the same ones that like to use the Smoker instant kill trick in the last stage! NOW that is a problem they have to fix.
