    All this talk of L4D made me go play it today.

    First attempt at joining a random versus game was interesting, as I found a server with one guy on it, who started applying god mode and slaying me when I tried to play, when I questioned this I got told I was an idiot because it was a roleplay server.

    I am so confused right now. :(

    This is why you must always use the buddy system when playing Left 4 Dead.

    Also, join lobbies not games in progress.

    It'll have to wait I gotta put my computer back together

    Brother gave me his old graphics card which is way better than mine

    But I put it in without realizing it needs a 6 pin pci express power cable. My old power supply only had 4pin molex connectors.

    So now I guess I gotta get a new power supply

    This game has made me realize that I'm now complete shit at FPSes. Like I used to be able to roll back in the days of Doom and Quake and such, but now I can't manage to put a crosshair on a moving target to save my damned life. I'm really hoping it's my mouse or something because otherwise it means I'm getting Old and my usefulness during a zombie apocalypse has been reduced to "guy that can fix things." And we all know he usually gets killed in Act III. :/

    Also totally say something if you are new to the versus thing so we can help you out and give you pointers.

    Cause I usually take it for granted that everyone has played as much as I do and knows all the tricks and gets upset when you do something wrong.

    LIKE RUNNING AWAY FROM US DURING A HORDE WHEN ONLY ONE PERSON GOT KNOCKED DOWN

    I liked it better when everyone was a panicky beginner instead of an expert that knew all the tricks.

    I just get frustrated really easily when something horrible happens to me in this game. Unless it is also hilarious.

    Also I loved that during the game last night someone had pinned a survivor with a hunter pounce and, as a tank, I punched a car up into the air that landed right next to them, and slowly tipped over and crushed both the hunter and the survivor.

    edit: and it isn't even "knowing all the tricks" so much as some basic stuff. Like, a car from a tank can incapacitate you instantly. Don't bother chasing after green guys if you are a tank and there are yellow or orange people to punch because you can't chase green people. Boomer bile has a deceptively short range and the boomer is really slow so never spawn behind the survivors and other important stuff.

    Really, the most basic thing you need to know in L4D is to stay close to your teammates and keep as many of them as possible in line of sight at all times. Or, when you're playing as infected, you need to know a) where the survivors are, and b) where your teammates are and what class they're spawning in as. Always move as a group and always act as a group, because one player acting alone is fucked over pretty easily, even if that player is the Tank. In L4D, communication is far more important than being a good shot or knowing the layout of any given map.

    I am out of date in my knowledges of the games, and especially the maps, some of them I look at and swear blind I've never seen before.

    So, a touch of guidance would be appreciated, and try not to get too pissed if I fuck up because I am El Rustino, King of Forgotten Skills.

    That said, I am around and willing to play right now, grab Fyndir on steam if you don't have me already and let's see if we can get something going.

    I need to pick up L4D2 one of these days. I bought the first one forever ago and then never quite got addicted enough to be interested in getting the sequel.

    Versus in 2 is miles better than in the first game, imo. Realism even more so.

    With that sale that just happened there are probably a bunch of 50-75% off valve coupons floating around, or free copies from the Gift Pile that people can't give away because it seems like everybody already has it

    I would love to mic up with you chaps, but generally by the time all you Americans are playing it's REALLY late here and people are trying to sleep.

    I played a whole mess of L4D on the Xbox, so I have a basic understanding of what I'm doing. What gets me killed is that I don't know the new maps and I'm still figuring out how the new infected play.

    I love the jockey though. I had a few good runs the other week when I was in town, driving people to their doom.

    help a fellow forumer meet their mental health care needs because USA healthcare sucks!

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better
