What is 'Left for Dead'?
The best goddamn co-op game you'll ever find, that's what it is.
First started as a project from Turtle Rock Studios and afterward lovingly embraced by Valve's touch of brilliance, it's a shooter that pits you and 3 friends (or bots, if you hate yourself) versus lots of zombies.
What makes it awesome however is that team play is not just recFommended, it is most utterly required. That means you need the right people to enjoy this game and you've come to the right place.


This game is so awesome but how do I play with you guys so I don't end up with terrible pubs?

    Man, I really tried to give Rochelle a chance, but she is bland as all hell.

    I think she's supposed to be the "normal" one.

  • NappuccinoNappuccino Registered User regular
    edited January 2010
    There wasn't really a "normal" one in l4d1... Unless you count louis I guess but he atleast had a lot of personality and energy with his character.

    edit: but yeah, Rochelle is the "normal one" I just don't understand why they thought there had to be one.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure they wanted Louis and Zoe to be more normal, and Francis and Bill were more from the Zombie Hell universe.

    In this case, I think it's Nick and Ellis who are from Zombie Hell, and Coach and Rochelle are the "normal" ones. But damn, they need to give Rochelle some lines that don't just seem to lead into good bits for Ellis.

    L4D1 has had it's SDK released, but L4D2 hasn't, and I've not read any news about it either. Perhaps maps can be made in the SDK of 1, and converting in a similar manner as the maps of 1, but how succesful that'd be, I don't know.

    Her dialogue can be really good, but her single lines less so.

    You can add me to the 'new to L4D1' list, if you like.

    I've had it for a bit longer, but getting my friends together to play has been touch and go - I've only done two of the campaigns (no other modes), each one twice.

    Steam ID is Jragghen. At work right now, so I can't exactly add people or anything.

    We were doing our usual campaign play on a dedicated server; Little did we know we were in for some L8D2:
    Spoiler:
    We had a fifth random player to begin with (he went spectator early on), even though we played 'friends only', and an extra bot so our theory is we connected at the exact time as this other dude. In the subsequent maps after the first the whole "extra party" spawned as bots. We upped the diff to expert after a while but didn't really notice any added resistance. The tanks in the finale go down real quick with eight people spamming them :D

    Another funny thing was the teasing of players that got kicked out of the various top lists by the horde of bots, between the maps.

    Wait so seriously. Just did dead center going for crutches. Pick ip an axe, then a katana, no other weapons. Do accidentlu pick up a bile bomb in finale, never use it. Picked up gas fans to fillthecar, none got shot. I did get downed by a witch while meleeing her, and fired one shot while downed. No crutches achievment :(

    Yeah fire one shot while down = no go.

    I believe picking up cans or cola isn't allowed either but I'm not sure on that.

    Throwables should be fine.

    I'd be really interested to hear the rational of "No Cola or gas cans!" to the melee only achievement when you can throw molotovs and actually do some dmg with them.
