Alright, some of you here have got to be zombie game fans. If you are, are you all as psyched for Left 4 Dead as I am? I've been looking forward to this game for quite some time, and now that we're nearing its approach, I'm overrun with excitement. Being a fan of Valve, I'm quite set in my mind that I'm going to love this game to death.
For those of you not in the know about this game, allow me to use Wikipedia's introduction summary. (I would've typed up one myself, but I just know I'd forget stuff or word it weird)
Left 4 Dead pits four human playable or AI controlled survivors of an apocalyptic pandemic against hordes of aggressive "Infected". The Survivors' goal is to help each other make it through various scenarios to safety. The Infected are controlled by an AI that dynamically balances difficulty and mood depending on the players' progress and situation. In an alternate game mode, human players can control up to four mutated Boss Infected with special abilities and cooperate to stop the Survivor players.
If anyone else plans on getting it, we'll definitely have to set up a time to play it together.
Also, an interesting side note, I saw a billboard while I was in Chicago last month with the game's cover art and title on it. It was awesome. :)
