Left 4 Dead 2 is now backwards compatible on Xbox One, Microsoft announced today. Rumors of another Left 4 Dead game have been floating around for ages, but nothing’s surfaced.
Think nobody plays Left 4 Dead 2 anymore? You’d be surprised.
On today’s Highlight Reel we have impossible GTA stunt landings, realistic touchdowns, Bloodborne wardrobe malfunctions and much, much more!
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.
Gamers 4 Croydon were a political party that helped Australians turn the tide against archaic ratings laws. In appreciation for their efforts, Valve will be honouring them with a little shout-out in 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.
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.
Is this... The Valvengers? The Hulk, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Nick Fury, Black Widow, Captain America and Thor (poor Thor) all transformed into Valve characters. With the Scout and the Soldier from Team Fortress 2 and a zombie from Left 4 Dead, teaming up with Gordon Freeman, this team probably wouldn't function smoothly.
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!
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.
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.
Soon, mods for Left 4 Dead 2—like the one that turns zombies into cats—will work in Campaign and Survival modes.
Valve just recently moved Steam Workshop out of beta, and we're already seeing a ton of great mods ready for your clicking.
You may remember that, nearly four years ago, Australia's classification board refused to classify Left 4 Dead 2, effectively banning it from sale in the country. At the time, Australia's ratings system for video games topped out at MA15+, which basically means suitable for teenagers. Valve released a highly sanitized…
I finally saw Wreck-It Ralph over the Thanksgiving break. It was heartwarming, delightful, charming. It nudged at some big-name titles in ways that made me giggle and nod in recognition. It covered the bases of a handful of video game tropes. It made jokes in the form of clever puns and cute character behavior.
I feel we haven't hit our weekly quota of Things Tina Likes, so here's a mash-up image of Adventure Time and Left 4 Dead 2, which, yes, I still play. In between Halo 4.
L4D2 is free to play for one weekend (starting this Thursday). New achievement added for long-time players.
Halloween is on its way, and while ghosts and ghouls may have been the undead horrors of decades past, here in 2012 it's all about the zombies and their ilk.
What better way to get in the mood for spooky doom than with this weirdly lovely, thoroughly instructive image from Left 4 Dead 2? See zombie, apply…
