I believe for awhile now that there was a 'Project Z' game being worked on for the Taito Nesica arcade systems in Japan but, now the official site updated with a teaser revealing that it's a Left 4 Dead game.

http://nesica.net/news/detail/?nid=138



Site: http://zombie.nesica.net/

There should be more info on it in the near future.

So while Japanese devs/pubs are starting to expand on Steam, Valve decided to take its place in the Japanese arcade market.

Half Life 2 Survivor could support up to 8 players for its deathmatch mode so probably

It is glorious.

I'm pretty sure there was another licensed Japanese CS thing on the HL1 engine as well.

I'd actually like to see them do something with CT: Neo.

Or maybe i'm just hungry for more Binary Domain.

That's a great question. The original's opening cinematic was so iconic for my kids and I, I can't imagine replacing it.Sadly, I can't imagine it making the transition unscathed. This is going to be such a different experience.

Presumably because prior efforts with Valve games were successful. If they weren't then either there's special interests involved or someone's kind of dumb.

Well, the P250 can kill with one headshot even if the enemy is wearing a helmet, so it makes sense that female Robocop would want to fellate it.

Why can't we get Survivor on Steam? Would be neat.

The name would be written in katakana (as seen in the OP), so there would be no play on words.

Yeah, it's one of the models in the game. It also has a few more neat combine designs in it as well.
