    360 or PC? And reasons?

    PC. He'll play until you hit the second saferoom and then down everyone and hide in the closet.

    If by second safe room, you mean the end of subway, thats legit. Team killing is acceptable after you clear the final room and the demos about to end.

    I can't imagine why anyone would get a valve source game on the 360 even if it runs at 4fps on their PC, you lose out on eleven million thousand maps, custom servers, mods, all kinds of crap.

    its really going against all my logic - including the fact that i love some keyboard/mouse over a gamepad any day. but my friends are definitely only getting it for the 360 and i really want to play with them. and i have a feeling the match making will be better on the 360 (just like it was for CoD4). but in the end i'll probably end up getting it for both for the aforementioned reasons.

    It's the quality over quantity logic. I sure as hell would sacrifice mods and maps to be able to have a game run well.

    Then just go over to their places and play split screen. And get the real game for yourself.

    He has to mean the one between maps. There's no closet in the second one.

    I guess the demo didn't come out at midnight :(.

    I would just pre-purchase the full-game to get access to the demo, but the Australian dollar is not so great at the moment, and if I wait long enough I could potentially save AU$10

    Heh, this thread moves so fast I check it every day for any worthwhile OP info.

    Added info on Alabaster Slim's server and also added the fact you can shoot a smoker victim to free them. From what I heard it frees them without damaging them.

    Some confirmation for that would be awesome. Don't want to fill the OP with bad info.

    Meleeing them works, and doesn't damage them. I think you can also shoot the tongue and it'll free them.

    Even though I agree the PC version offers much more re playability, if someone can't afford a rig to play it or if majority of their friends are on the 360, they should go for the 360.

    You can't damage a teammate that is in the process of being mauled by a hunter or toungued by a smoker. If you're right next to the victim it is easiest to melee them out of their situation. But if you're more than 10 feet away it is faster to shoot, SHOOT.

    Dear Valve,

    Ted is very skeptic. I pretty much hate zombies, vampires, and horror-oriented material. Every time I have to see a feral ghoul in Fallout 3 I am annoyed; its just ugly. Yes, the first time I went down into the metro and saw what looked like just another poor whastelander and he turned and looked at me and went 'PSHAWWWAEWERRRR' I screamed and ran right back OUT of the metro. That was kind of cool. But then I was over it.

    I had grave doubts about Left 4 Dead. Valve...oh Valve. I just watched the intro movie for the first time. That black guy...I love that black guy. And that old guy. The mean guy, I can definitely see some potential in that mean guy. And the girl; she probably still believes in God while she shoots all those zombies. I don't care about the zombies anymore Valve; I don't even see the zombies anymore.

    Love,
    THE Ted

    I realized today that Zoey is dressed quite similarly to Kelly, the main character of the British zombie mini series Dead Set.

    l_73ae4f7bf947416b8e89c3770095c756.jpg


    You can't see as well from this image but she has the same skinny jeans rolled up into cuffs with chucks that Zoey has, but a different colored jacket.

    Spoilered for size.
    l4d-steam-survivors-room.jpg

    It's more than likely just a coincidence based on the current style of the age group Zoey and Kelly both represent but, its cool none the less. Also, check out Dead Set if you can.

    Not sure if this helps, but when I first tried to download the demo it didn't seem to download unless I had the dialog box with the completion bar up (of course, if you don't even get the dialog box when you try to install it then I don't know what you could do).
