Game Description:Setting out to do for co-op gaming what Counter-Strike did for team combat, Left 4 Dead is an ambitious survival horror game. Running on the Source engine, Left 4 Dead leaves four armed survivors of a world overrun with zombies, and they must fight their way out to escape the outbreak. Designed for co-op play, the four players must work together to finish each stage of the game, lending each other artillery support, sharing ammo and rescuing each other when zombies are on top of them. In addition to the standard four players as humans, another four players can be amongst the masses of assaulting zombies, seeking to take down the other players. Zombie players might even find themselves become one of the four mutant "boss" zombies, who have unique powers that can be used to devastate, injure, tie up, mark and track, confuse, or even humiliate the gun-toting human survivors.

    Everyone's caught up with the holiday releases, right? No one's fallen behind? We've all finished Dragon Age: Origins and are contemplating a second run as an elf? Lies! All lies! But as the last week stocked with the year's biggest releases finally passes us by, the Feedback crew headed into the studio to discuss the latest news of the industry...

  • What Do You Think Of Left 4 Dead 2?

    Steam opened the floodgates last night. You probably snuck over to Best Buy to pick up a retail copy on your lunch break. Have you had a chance to pop into Valve's zombie sequel yet? I reviewed the game for G4 (and, as you might expected, loved it), which means I've already dumped many more hours into Left 4 Dead 2 than you have! Take that,...

  • Adam Sessler And Patrick Klepek Discuss Left 4 Dead 2

    Valve's decision to move forward on a sequel to Left 4 Dead 2 so quickly surprised just about everybody, but there's a reason people are so trustworthy of Valve: they're usually right. Patrick Klepek sat down with Adam Sessler this week to discuss Patrick's review of Left 4 Dead 2, which he scored an impressive 4 out of 5. The game's a little...

  • Zombie Fan Slowly Rebuilding Left 4 Dead As Old School 8-Bit Pixel Shooter

    Valve inspires its fans to do crazy things. Take Eric Ruth, who's made it his personal mission to recreate Left 4 Dead from scratch in the context of a top-down, 8-bit action game. So far, Ruth has finished the first campaign of the original Left 4 Dead, the hospital-based No Mercy, but he's aiming to release a completed product, spanning all...

  • Left 4 Dead 2 Demo Error Code Reveals Future DLC?

    Given all of the hooting and/or hollering that’s surrounded Valve’s Left 4 Dead franchise regarding downloadable content, it’s no surprise that, as Joystiq reports, the Internets are abuzz over reports that errors have been found in the code for the Left 4 Dead 2 demo that apparently reveal two future bits of DLC: the...

  • Left 4 Dead 2 Boycott Ending Next Week

    It has been a trying few months for a series of brave and levelheaded gamers who took it upon themselves to shun a highly anticipated title from one of the most revered developers in the industry, based on an in no way absurd sense of entitlement with regards to Left 4 Dead support. But as of October 21st, boycotters of Valve’s Left 4...

  • Sessler's Soapbox: Why Zombies Matter

    Everyone loves zombies. Well maybe not people getting eaten by zombies. But being gamers, there's nothing we enjoy more than splattering the soft, gray skull of a member of the undead with the butt of our shotgun. Such is the subject of this week's Soapbox. The Sess gets literary on your ass and explains in great detail why zombies are such an...

  • Gabe Newell To Visit Australian Gamer Next Week

    How fitting it is that, right now, the Australian government is attempting to work its way towards establishing a 18+ rating for video games (due in large part to the recent Left 4 Dead 2 ban), and in just a few days time, Valve head Gabe Newell himself will be visiting the country. Not for any official business (or to smack some sense into...

  • So What Do You Think Of Left 4 Dead's Crash Course?

    So everyone at G4 is talking about the new Left 4 Dead DLC Crash Course. I haven't had a chance to check it out (Too busy watching Sons of Anarchy last night.), but I talked to Jeffrey Kanjanapangka, Left 4 Dead fan, and he gave his first impressions to me. Jeff says the game is more about tactics than it is about aesthetics, so the two...

  • Second Left 4 Dead DLC "Crash Course" Coming September 29

    “Boo!! Left 4 Dead 2 means that Valve is abandoning us loyal Left 4 Dead fans, and will no longer be supporting L4D! Boycott! Boycott!” I still don’t understand this mentality, and I don’t think I ever will, and yet I can’t help but wonder how anti-L4D2 folks are feeling knowing that Valve will be releasing its...

  • Australian Gamer Raises $3,000 To Pay For Gabe Newell Visit

    The shenanigans that have sprung up as a result of a bunch of misguided gamers boycotting Valve’s Left 4 Dead 2 have just been ridiculous. I thought last week’s story about a pair of boycotters being given a tour of Valve’s studios was brilliant, but this latest story might be even better. As Joystiq reported last week, a...

    Microsoft appears to have little interest in making Xbox 360 an open platform for user generated content ala PCs or PlayStation 3 (see: Unreal Tournament III), but that isn't stopping Valve, a huge supporter of fan content, from making it work somehow. The latest idea? The studio told OXM it's considering porting the best Left 4 Dead content...

    The story that Steve told you yesterday about those Left 4 Dead 2 boycotters who ended up getting a personal tour of Valve’s studio is easily one of the funniest I’ve heard in some time. I mean, how awkward must that have been for those guys? However, a bit of welcomed news came out of the visit, with Valve revealing that players...
