Well, Zombiephiles, the day we’ve all been waiting for (or, at least, the day this Zombiephile has been waiting for) has finally arrived – Left 4 Dead 2 was released about six hours ago (following a brief delay for God only knows what reason), and I’ve been knee-deep in zombies for the last two hours. Say what you will about how quickly Left 4 Dead 2 was released, and moan all you want about the fact that most developers are going to abandon the first Left 4 Dead game in favor of programming mods for the second one – all of that is true, but the simple fact remains that Left 4 Dead is an absolutely fantastic zombie video game, incredibly fun, and a significant upgrade over the original.
There’s just over 15 hours to go until the much-anticipated Left 4 Dead 2 is released, and this Zombiephile can hardly wait! With new gameplay modes (Scavenge, Realism), new weapons (including the much-vaunted melee weapons), four new characters, and all new special zombies to slay, Left 4 Dead 2 promises to be a substantial improvement over the first Left 4 [...]
When the much-anticipated Left 4 Dead 2 demo finally became available on Wednesday, fans of the popular zombie game didn’t waste any time getting online and trying it out. This Zombiephile has been playing the Left 4 Dead 2 Demo for the last three days, and he’s got a first look – and some hot Left 4 Dead 2 Demo [...]
The much-anticipated Left 4 Dead 2 PC Demo, which was scheduled to be released on Tuesday, 10/27/2009, to pre-purchase customers, has been officially delayed until Wednesday, 10/28/2009.
Well, if you weren’t already crapping your pants with anticipation for Left 4 Dead 2, you’ll probably do so after seeing this Left 4 Dead 2 gameplay video – it’s the Bayou Cabin level.
This new Left 4 Dead 2 trailer (supposedly a leaked Left 4 Dead 2 trailer) is quite possibly the best video game trailer I’ve ever seen. Without a doubt, it’s the best zombie game trailer of all time.
The demo version of Left 4 Dead 2 will become available for gameplay on October 27th…for those people lucky enough to have pre-ordered the zombie game.
Well, Australian zombiephiles, you can breathe a collective sigh of relief. Apparently people at Valve and the Australian game classification board have been reading this zombie blog, because they’ve gone ahead and approved a modified version of Left 4 Dead 2 for sale in Australia.
Fans of the wildly popular zombie game will recall that the Australian game classification board had refused the game for classification citing realistic, high-impact violence. Not to be deterred, Valve developers quickly got to work modifying the game, removing some of the elements that the game classification board cited as among the most inappropriate, including “decapitations, dismemberment, wound detail, or piles of bodies lying about the environment.”
Valve released this week a new campaign for Left 4 Dead, called Crash Course; it was the first new campaign released for the zombie game since the game was released. Still, though, Crash Course may not be enough to satiate Left 4 Dead fans who worry that Valve will cease development for the first Left 4 Dead game once they release Left 4 Dead 2.
