General
● Left 4 Dead - Co-op, Survival Horror, FPS
Platforms - PC, Xbox 360
Price - PC $50, 360 $60
Release Date - Nov 18, 2008, Nov 21 EU

● A virulent strain of the Rabies virus has started spreading throughout the country. (Cause unknown) Source

● Left 4 Dead will feature some new Source engine enhancements, not seen in any previous Source game. Physics based animation being the primary new feature. The Boomers jiggly belly, flowing hair, floppy clothing. There will also be a new particle system. Source

● The 360 version will include 2 player split-screen, as well as system link support. The 2 players can also play online together, much like Halo. Certain Affinity is helping with the 360 version of the game. 360 version has dedicated servers, hosted by Valve. This is no TF2, on that platform.

● System requirements
OS: Windows Vista, XP, or 2000
CPU: 3.0 GHz P4, Dual Core 2.0 or AMD64X2 (or higher)
RAM: 1 GB for XP / 2 GB for Vista
DISC DRIVE: DVD-ROM Drive
HARD DRIVE: AT least 7.5 GB of free space
VIDEO: DirectX 9 compatible video card (Video card must be 128 MB or more and should be a DirectX 9-compatible with support for pixel shader 2.0)
SOUND: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

● Difficulty Settings - Easy, Normal, Advanced, and Expert. The difficulty influences friendly fire frequency, as well infected attack power. In Normal mode, infected attacks are worth 3 health, in Expert they are worth 20! (That's nuts!)

● Players - 1-8, or solo with AI controlled survivors. The game has 3 distinct game modes. Single Player, Campaign, and Versus. Campaign is a 4 player experience, Versus is a 8 player experience, as 4 other players apart from the survivors take control of 4 boss infected. (The Boomer, The Hunter, The Smoker and The Tank)

● AI - The Director AI is a dynamic difficulty and pacing system. The Director calculates spawn placement based on skill, location, health, and various other factors. This allows the game to be different in each playthrough. The director controls visual effect cues, as well the games dynamic music.

● There are over 1000 lines of recorded dialogue for each survivor, for more than 4000 total. (That doesn't include radio broadcasts, etc)

● When you're low on health, you start to limp. Your movement speed is reduced.

● Each survivor can carry a single health pack, which you get at starts and checkpoints. You can also pop pills, which is a temporary health regen that gradually diminishes to your health prior to popping the pills.

● When you reach 0 health you fall to the ground (Last Man Standing), your health boosts to 300, and a bleedout timer begins. Your 300 health starts downtick at 3 health per second, until you're helped by a fellow survivor. You can still shoot while bleeding out on the ground. You can only be revived 3 times, and the last revival is only temporary. You will eventually die from one hit after the 3rd revival. The screen turns black & white when you're near death.

● You recieve merits and demerits based on your performance. You recieve merits for healing, saving your fellow survivors. You recieve demerits for friendly fire, and various other forms of retardism.

The Survivors (You don't choose who you play as, the computer does)

Bill - Veteran of the Vietnam War

Francis - Biker

Louis - Assistant Manager of an electronic convenience store (Best Buy?, Circuit City?)

Zoey - The daughter of a wealthy family.

The Infected
[IMG]http://i35.************/b8232a.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://i35.************/15nqae1.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://i36.************/2m76io0.jpg[/IMG][IMG]http://i34.************/2e21h04.jpg[/IMG]

All infected can see survivors through walls at specific ranges if the survivors are running, have their flashlights on, or are talking. (Voice Commands) The infected can see in the dark.

Boomer - Vomits, which is his primary attack. The vomit acts as a pheromone for other infected, which draws them to you. He explodes when killed which sends out even more vomit, covering anyone within the immediate area. He recieves points for all infected attacks. (His minions, if you will)

Hunter - Fast and agile, the hunter can jump ungodly distances, and climb walls. If you get pounced by a hunter, breaking free is impossible. Your fellow survivors will have to save you.

Smoker - Has a 50FT long tongue that can be used to drag players, or hang them. When The Smoker is killed, he leaves behind a cloud of smoke, which will blind and obstruct vision.

Tank - The strongest of all the playable infected, The Tank can throw cars and objects, smash walls, and overwhelm the survivors with sheer force. In VS mode, choosing the tank is not an option, rather the computer chooses randomly who will get to play as The Tank. When you spawn as The Tank, a frustration meter starts to fill for every moment you aren't around survivors. When the meter is full, you lose control of the The Tank. (He becomes fully consumed by rage, and is driven unconsciously)

The Witch - The she-bitch of Left 4 Dead. The Witch is AI controlled and non-playable. The most powerful enemy in the game, as well as the most rare. The Witch kills with a single hit, but will only show up once or twice in a campaign. She will only react if you shoot her, shine a flashlight at her, or fire your weapons around her. She only exists in difficulties above Normal.


Weapons
Uzi, Pump Shotgun, Auto Shotgun, M16, Hunting Rifle, Pipe Bomb, Molotov Cocktail, Dual and Single Wield Pistols. Ammo is limited, you must share to survive.

Dedicated server files will be released either tomorrow, or the next day. (Nov 4th, 5th)

Reviews
OXM 9.5/10

Zombie Books, Movies & Games 28 Weeks Later is nowhere near as good as 28 Days Later, but I included it for completions sake. These are the only two zombie movies with the fast style infected, rather than George Romero's Haitian Voodoo inspired slow undead ghouls. 28 Days Later reimagined zombie movies by having a more plausible premise. Humans were infected by a virus transported through a chimpanzee attack, a mutation of a inhibitor that regulated anger and control that had the opposite effect, uncontrollable rage. The virus was highly contagious, and could be spread through saliva, as well as blood. This is the style zombie that influenced Left 4 Dead.

Eh, random seems better than choosing, imagine the pre-game lobby bitching that would occur before each match. You know there's going to be one character everyone's gonna fight over.

You preorder at Gamestop and get early access on the 6th, or you wait until the 11th.

Yeah, I could get that, but if you're playing with a lot of friends, you could maybe decide beforehand or something. I have some friends getting the game, and we've all picked our characters we'd like to play as.

Ah, I see how you got confused. My bad.

There are over 4000 lines of recorded dialogue, not voice commands.

Only a handful of voice commands.

Wheel 1: Ready?, Thank you, I'm with you, No, Where Are You?, Sorry, *$@#, Yes, You're Welcome

Wheel 2: Look!, I hear a Tank, I hear a Witch, I hear a Hunter, Clear, Be Careful, Hurrah!, I hear a Boomer, I hear a Smoker

Wheel 3: Help!, Let's Go, Hurry!, Cover me!, Lights Out!, Watch Behind, Follow Me, Stay Together!, You Take the Lead

Few people actually seriously use the voice chat in TF2, the mic is much better. In CSS, the voice commands are pretty useful, different pace of game I guess. I think the mic will be much better in L4D, but there seems to be slower moments in the game.

Bigger releases you say? For those in the know, this is the biggest release :P. It's Valve for God's sake.

With the ATi 4850 pc gaming is cheap again. And the source engine doesn't need any tuning for it to run beautifully.
Pre-ordered the game off STEAM as soon as it was available. Can't wait, easily my second most hyped game of '08.

Pre-ordered the 360 version this past week and I can't freaking wait for the demo. I have no classes that day, and I'm off from work.

Can you set friendly fire to one-shot-kill? It would be cool to play with friends under this setting. Maybe even with setting damage by zombies to maximum.

Already pre-ordered on Amazon for 40 Bucks (PC FTW). Im hoping i can get good visuals on this like I can on TF2 and HL2.
My only worry is that ill be too scared to play this, or I wont like it - thank god for demos or I wouldn't have even considered pre-ordering this.

can't wait, but got a question. you say the Witch only exists in difficulties above Normal. Is normal and above or just the 2 higher difficulties?

I don't know how long you guys would be friends. There would be more betrayals than a soap opera.

Given how often you have to shoot zombies off eachother I can't imagine that being any fun.
