Think nobody plays Left 4 Dead 2 anymore? You’d be surprised.
This past weekend, needing a bit of zombie killing in my life, I joined some friends at a local arcade to spend some time with Left 4 Dead Survivors. Honestly, I wish I'd just stayed home and played Left 4 Dead 2.
A few weeks ago, Valve's 2009 zombie shooter, Left 4 Dead 2, was reclassified under Australia's new R18+ rating. Previously, the game had to be censored so it could be sold under MA15+, Australia's then-highest rating for games. Now, due to the reclassification, an uncensored version is available to Australia.
Team Fortress 2's Pyro and Saxton Hale, and Left 4 Dead's Zoey are joining Super Time Force when it's released on Steam next week. See their adorable pixelated avatars in action below:
This weekend, a location test for Left 4 Dead's arcade game kicked off in Tokyo. While the idea of a Left 4 Dead arcade game might sound great, the reality of one doesn't seem like it.
Left 4 Dead is being released as an arcade game in Japan. None of the eight existing characters, however, are making the trip (despite featuring in the local releases of the console titles). Instead, publishers Taito have swapped in an all-new cast.
This project was announced a little while ago, but this is our first good look at Taito's licensed take on Left 4 Dead. As an arcade game. In Japan.
There's a Facebok group called Dead Mall Enthusiasts. It's a fascinating collection of photos people have taken of abandoned malls across America. There are all kinds of socioloical reasons why that's interesting, but what's really got me is how they look like a video game artist's portfolio come to life.
Valve wants to say "Merry Christmas". So everyone gets a copy of Left 4 Dead 2. You get a copy, you get a copy, you get a copy, you get a copy.
If you've ever watched Zombieland or played L4D2's Dark Carnival, then you already know that going to a theme park when the world is overrun by zombies maaay not be the best idea. ...or it might be the best idea. Especially if said theme park is Disneyland!
Left 4 Dead's Nick may be up to his eyeballs in the undead, but he's still got time to peruse the casual encounters section of Craigslist.
Now that's something that would chase zombies (and everyone else) away, Nic Cage, modded by Dr. Rinoncitos into Left 4 Dead 2, as a flashlight. I'm not sure I was ready for this. All those crazy mods from Grand Theft Auto IV and Skyrim can go home now.
Well this is certainly interesting. Tourists at Valve's Bellevue-based headquarters may have inadvertently leaked the existence of Left 4 Dead 3, a sequel that is not entirely unexpected, but still unannounced.
Literally years in the making, Dniepr is a custom campaign for Left 4 Dead that yanks the game out of its American setting and drops it right in the middle of the Ukraine. Including Pripyat, which as STALKER players will know, is the place a certain nuclear reactor blew sky high a few decades back.
Thanks to the efficiencies afforded by Linux, "we skipped Valve time," jokes Valve, and the Left 4 Dead 2 Linux beta is available right now. Access to authoring tools and a beta dedicated server come with it, if you own the game already.
I saw these pop up on Twitter a few weeks back, but you know what? I've been on vacation for a few weeks. So here they are.
As revealed last week, two of video games' biggest zombie-centric franchises will be bumping uglies when crossover content for the PC versions of Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2 hits in in two weeks. This video shows what it looks like when Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle take on the BOWs of Capcom's global…
Suddenly, the mother of all zombie apocalypses is about to happen. This just wound up in our inbox:
Valve just recently moved Steam Workshop out of beta, and we're already seeing a ton of great mods ready for your clicking.There are a of other maps, skins for the four playable characters, skins for enemies, heck, skins for the defibrillator and ammo packs. There are weapons, from…
