I couldn't find the L4D thread.

Though, here is something cool. Who's up?

Hands on:D:

And gameplay videos:

http://media.xbox360.ign.com/media/143/14352241/vids_1.html

I am getting it, I just hope it's not too much like the first one (as much I love it), I just don't want them thinking they can add a few things and slap a $60 price tag.:p

Carbonek_0051

So soon?

I know right?

I'm still getting it but it's sort of annoying how they are already releasing a sequel on almost the same day as the first one.

Left 4 Dead: November 18th

Left 4 Dead 2: November 17th

If they don't do any major improvements I don't see why they couldn't release all this as DLC.

Survival
02-06-09, 06:06
Well from the teaser it looks bigger but I guess the engine will be exactly the same so I donīt see any reason why they release it as a sequel instead of an upgrade.

It feels like yesterday when I bought the first game. I will still buy it though... more survivors FTW.

After watching the gameplay videos wow, incendiary ammo, axes, frying pans, and levels that take place in daylight.:cln:

I am a happy person, I just hope they have more scenarios. That was my only issue with the first game. And can I please have some story thrown in this time.:p

I'm still getting it no matter what. xD

Survival
02-06-09, 06:24
I just hope it maintains the atmosphere of the original (Or even better... upgrades it) :).

I just hope that they don't forget about the first one and give us the story around the first game...
To soon for a new L4D


EDIT:
Just saw the gameplay
I'm sorry but where's the news?
Who will use meele weapons when u have infinity pistols?
How in the hell boomer, hunter and smoker can be the same ?
I don't think I'll wast my money for new weapons, characters etc...
SDk is out, and it will be possible in the normal left 4 dead but BETTER!
I know the game is good but, wtf? Make a mode using l4d name to get more money?
I don't think they can handle it
And promisses, it will be more cooperativ, OH REALY? It's exacly the same as the other one with some news features...
The girl looks so much like zoey, the way she speaks...
The big guy and the other one looks like Heavy and Scoult from Tf2
And the other guy is louis but white

Yay! I love it, my 360 will too. :D

02-06-09, 09:27
It looks fun. I love the first one. The meele combat will be nice (a frying pan? XD) I hope it has a bigger selection of campains to choose from.

02-06-09, 09:37
It looks pretty good, but I would have said it would be better if it was an expansion rather than a brand new game.

And I don't like the look of the new HUD (could be a beta one though), and I do prefer the original characters. But it does look good, I will defiantly get it.

And one other important question... When is Half Life 2: Episode 3 going to come out? :(

New scenarios and locations is all that's needed to make a worthy sequel... all the other changes are just icing on the cake. Seriously, all the arguments saying this is not worthwhile could have been applied to Tomb Raider 2... one year later, no real big changes except new places to go! (yet it was great).

Bad example for me, I didn't like TRII.:p

I am just hoping they have more than 4 scenarios for this game.:pi:

Still don't know why.:whi:

:p

But did anyone else notice the new Special Infected in the gameplay videos? His name is the Charger, I take it he charges straight at you. I am hoping they added a few more SI besides him.:D

I still think the incendiary ammo looks awsome.:cln:

I think L4D2 should include everything from the first game only updated to match the new maps,weapons etc.

It is a new engine - hence them releasing it as a new game and not a free DLC as VALVe usually does.

It has new weather effects and so and so - which makes me happy that they're updating the Source engine still. AND to think L4D is really just engine testers for the FAMOUS Half Life 2 - Episode Three. VALVe loves quality - and when it comes down to Half Life 2... you can't beat it. VALVe has a reputation to uphold and so taking ages to make Episode Three perfect - is perfectly fine in my book :p.

Thanks for the links. If the next installment is different enough with new innovations I will consider buying it.

So soon?

Seriously, its a bit off putting. The first one hasn't even been out for a year.

I have mixed feelings towards this game so far, the characters are pretty mediocre compared to the previous ones. Nevertheless after watching the gameplay videos my hopes rose again. The new weapons look amazing, so does the gameplay. Role on November.

Lara.Jolie7
02-06-09, 20:01
It looks just a mod...
they replaced the characters and the game more then ever looks like tf2.
The zombies stills the same 2 me.

And u can see in the gameplay video, pistols stils the same, so u don't need 2 wast ur time with meele weapons... :(

-DaNnEe..
02-06-09, 20:05
^ This won't be the completed version. They will change things and I hope that's one of them. Stuck with an axe with a horde of zombies chasing you would be so awesome.

Can't wait to see more gameplay. Those first gameplay videos were awesome.
I hope Valve doesn't change to much in this game like they did to the 1st game. L4D looks completely different in its BETA stages.

I actually cannot wait. The axe looks fierce.

I always assumed Left 4 Dead was a Series of Games so to speak. :p

Left FOR Dead 1
Left FOR Dead 2
Left FOR Dead 3
Left FOR Dead 4

Howcome this Game is so Bloody Violent more then the Half Life Series. :confused:

Because it's not Half-Life & it's a horror game with zombies. I don't see how you can compare the games besides the fact they are made by the same company.

07-06-09, 17:59
Half Life 2 is very gory & scary. It has both zombies and aliens! Also - if you have played Episode Two - you know it's alot more gory and bloody than Left 4 Dead!

The reason they replaced the characters is because it occurs around the same time the first one did and it's in a totally different place. It's a very early version considering they started developing it right after L4D1 was released and I'm amazed at what they already accomplished.

07-06-09, 18:35
Already is coming. Game looks interesting, I didn't play the first one, only reason because I don't have internet broadband now. This game is much fun play in co-op than single.
Valve should need to focus on Half-Life Episode 3 than on L4D2, imo.
This is too early.

Doubt Ill buy it. Looks nearly identical to L4D1. At least ad some new special infected.

They should call it Left 2 Die

-DaNnEe..
07-06-09, 20:03
They should change the skins on the Boomer, Smoker and Hunter atleast. Or make them have various different skins so they're not all the same.
The charger looks awesome but it looks very easy to kill... Well, I guess when you are surrounded with zombies then it'll be alot harder.
I'm glad it isn't all set in day-time too, but it does look interesting in day-time.

Omfg, I actually cannot wait for this. I'm still not bored of L4D1, I've played it like everyday since christmas. :jmp:

07-06-09, 20:14
It hasn't even been a year yet and they're releasing another one? Don't get me wrong i love L4D but we've had one update for the game when we were getting promised a lot and they're already focusing on another? Other then the weather effects, charger and 3 melee weapons its the same game. Same guns just all modified to look different. The characters are strange. A business/wealthy guy of some sort, a hillbilly, a guy who looks like Mr. T, and a chick. There needs to be more in this game than the 3 different things for me to pay another $60 to buy it.

Valve might make a game mode for L4D2 where the old and new survivors meet up together! :cln:

I actually agree with them. It's way too early for a sequel and if they take longer for development and not release it this year, then I will be very happy. :)

I might even buy L4D1 for the PC. :D

i played the demo a little while back and a friend recommended it to me recently. i was just about to buy it when i heard the announcement that there was a second one coming. i was completely shocked and disappointed. while i don't own the first one (and now never will), i can understand why so many players are incensed. i would be too.

-DaNnEe..
08-06-09, 21:18
^ Well L4D1 is pretty awesome on the PC. There is no difference what so ever in gameplay or anything but the controls, for me, are alot more easier to control. I've played both versions and I think that the PC version is the the best, IMO!

Haha, I actually convince mr friend that L4D was a sequel to Left 2 Die.

Which is proof why they wont choose that one, as some people may feel the L4D comes after L2D

Using keyboard & mouse? That's purely a matter of perspective, I think keyboard & mouse is an horrific way to play any game.

But anyway, L4D2...great news to hear about the sequel. I'm finding the story about thousands of people boycotting it hilarious though. It doesn't bother me that Valve have yet to honour their claims of DLC for the original, I don't own it. I've played it plenty though and it's enjoyable enough as it is, and the new stuff being heralded in L4D2 certainly looks good to me.

It's just a first person shooter where you are one of 4 survivors who is trying to escape area with zombies also kow as "infected". It's a multiplayer based game, so there isn't much story to it besides the characters backstories and them escaping.:p

Only 5?! Couldn't they have made more? Plus the new SI "The Charger" is the same thing as a tank except smaller.

I am still going to buy it, but Valve really needs to impress me more. I am a little ticked off that we haven't heard anything about Half-Life 2 Episode 3 but they are putting out a sequel to this already.

That's why I've been reading stories about people already boycotting the sequel. They believe the "improvements" don't warrant a whole new game at all, that what's been presented could feasibly be included as simple DLC for the current L4D, DLC that Valve promised but have yet to deliver.

But like I said before, none of that bothers me because I don't own the original L4D.

We can hope that those campaigns are larger than those in the original game... but I agree about The Charger; I don't get what's special about him?

Well, 5 additional campaigns as DLC would not be cheap... nor do I think people should expect them to be. So, putting them in a new "game" may not be such a bad thing... especially if it's a bit cheaper than the average new game cost. Maybe $40.00? One can hope.

Anyway, they said the campaign is going to be much longer than L4D1 and if you saw that 7-8 minute gameplay video, they had this special infected that looked like a fat ball like figure wearing what looks like a blue and green hoody. :D
