Left 4 Dead


It's sad that Australian gamers are only now getting an uncensored version of Left 4 Dead 2, but at least we finally have some closure. After resubmitting the cooperative zombie shooter for classification, Valve is now able t...

Zoey. It was Zoey! I would have never guessed she was the third mystery character teased for Super Time Force Ultra following Pyro and Saxton Hale from Team Fortress 2, but it makes sense in retrospect. The Left 4 Dead star b...

What if Valve made their own Super Smash Bros. game, but with characters from Dota 2, Half-Life, Portal, Counter-Strike, and Left 4 Dead? What if?!

Left 4 Dead: Survivors is shambling to test locations in Tokyo today, courtesy of Taito. The Japanese arcade release sports a number of subtle changes to the classic zombie-shooting formula, including a strange new controller...



Remember Taito's "Project Z" and how it was revealed to simply be an arcade version of Left 4 Dead? There's finally a gameplay trailer to accompany the big announcement. It's full of zombies, broken English, and Japanese tex...

Left 4 Dead in Japanese arcades? It's more likely than you think. Actually, it's definitely going to happen. Taito's been teasing a "Project Z" for some time now for its Nesica arcade systems, but today the official site has...

Famed NeoGAF leaker CBOAT has posted a screencap of what appears to be a Valve slideshow presentation detailing Source 2. The PowerPoint shows Left 4 Dead 2's plantation level rebuilt in the new engine and one of the slides, ...

Yesterday's discovery of Valve's trademark of Half-Life 3 in Europe didn't do much for me. This latest story, however, is an entirely different matter. The company's JIRA database for project management was publicly accessibl...

That's Francis up there. Yeah. At one point in time, he and the other three survivors of Left for Dead looked ... how do I put this politely? Iteration is important, let's just say. Valve has graciously released the original ...

A great way to waste time is to Google any odd topic that happens to pop into your head and play a game of link tag until you strike pay dirt. My latest excursion led me to Sonic Racer 4K, a Java-based Sonic fan game. But wha...

In this latest installment of Office Chat, I'm joined by Jim Sterling and Jordan Devore to commiserate over Valve's seeming decision to prioritize Left 4 Dead 3 ahead of Half-Life 3. Plus, John Carmack has joined the team developing the Oculus Rift VR headset, but is anybody going to care anymore once the thing is actually in consumer hands?

Recent evidence has pointed to Left 4 Dead 3's existence, as if such a thing were ever truly in question. Of course there's going to be another one, eventually. A photograph of a change log that mentioned "L4D3" and "Source 2...

Hey everybody! Here's another episode of The Destructoid Show! Because Tuesday! Some sneaky Redditors have uncovered evidence pointing to the existence of Left 4 Dead 3, Bethesda has finally shown off The Elder Scrolls ...

Fans from the Reddit DOTA 2 community went on a tour of Valve recently and some secrets may have been spilled among the many photos that were taken. A picture of an employee's computer screen was captured, and upon closer ins...

Left 4 Dead 2? It's a fun game. It's made even better thanks to all the amazing mods the community has created. Enjoy this compilation of Teletubbies, raptors, Koopa Troopas, Storm Troopers, cats, Justin Bieber, My Little Pony, Aliens, and so much more craziness. [Thanks, Lucas!]

Day three of Xbox Live's "Ultimate Game Sale" has a few surprises. Or maybe that's just me still learning to accept that console deals are finally coming around. Today only, you can grab the following discounted games: The W...

At the NeuroGaming 2013 Conference and Expo this month, Valve's Mike Ambinder spoke about biofeedback experiments that the company has been working on, reports GamesBeat. Most notably, he mentioned that Valve put together a s...

Resident Evil 6 is out today on Steam and all I can say is, hey, points for trying. If you want to play this game, doing so on PC is by all accounts the way to go. Following up on its announcement of a crossover with Left 4 ...

Every now and then, I stumble upon something written by somebody else that I find interesting enough to share with you, my lovely readers. They needn't be written by developers or pundits, either. Take, for example, this humb...

The Lord of the Rings-inspired Helm's Deep Reborn map for Left 4 Dead 2 really was one of the highlights of my journey through the Steam Workshop. It's nice, then, to see a nod from the team at Valve -- the Survival mode-only...

Valve has released an Expanded Mutation System for Left 4 Dead 2, which will first be available with a beta release before wider distribution. Essentially, this is an improved scripting system that will allow modders "to go p...

Mods are hardly new for Left 4 Dead 2, but now that Valve has added full Steam Workshop support, it's easier than ever to find and install user-created content. Literally, it's as easy as locating a promising-looking mod with...

Okay, so this is a bit of an old mod but it's making a comeback now that the Steam Workshop is live for Left 4 Dead 2. Yes. Play as velociraptors in Left 4 Dead 2. So. Good. Velociraptors [Left 4 Dead 2, Via Reddit]

You have to love Valve. Not only does it empower customers with the tools to create unique content for its games, but the company also gives them an easily accessible means in which to share that content with others! True to ...

The cuts made to Left 4 Dead 2 on its release in Australia were another example of the country's inconsistent rating system before the recent introduction of an R18+ rating. Valve is now considering resubmitting the co-op zom...

Simon Pegg's love of zombies and indeed Left 4 Dead 2 is well documented, but it could be that his blessing will breathe new life into a stagnant mod. Left 4 Winchester was a mod started in 2009 based on the comedy zombie hit...

This is what I've been waiting for. Ever since the Source Filmmaker was announced, I've been anticipating some top quality animations. The initial stuff has been great, but you need time to learn the inner workings of such a...

That collaborative Mercy Hospital Heist for PAYDAY: The Heist is now available for free on Steam. The original reveal for this content was rather unexpected, but I've since grown to like it, conceptually. The fact that it doe...

Valve's Linux team has started a blog detailing what, exactly, it's up to. The first order of business was to port Left 4 Dead 2 over to Ubuntu. Currently, they are "getting the Steam client onto Linux with full functionality...

Valve has defended its policy of offering insane discounts during Steam sales, responding to Electronic Arts' hypocritical accusation that such discounts cheapen intellectual property. Business development boss Jason Hol...

Through magic, hacking, and ungodly trickery you can see Valve's Left 4 Dead running on a PS Vita. Well, kinda. One YouTube user, digitalarts001, has tweaked the PlayStation Suite to let him control Left 4 Dead running a PC ...

That's right, folks - I'm back in the studio after a week-long vacation, and I've got my party shoes on! You know, the orthopaedic ones with extra arch support? (I have fragile bones.) Anyway, on today's show, we've got a tr...

[Update: The official YouTube video was taken down, but IGN managed to snag it before it was hidden.] I've been looking forward to seeing how the whole Payday: The Heist and Left 4 Dead crossover was going to happen. Today, ...

[Update: It's not Monday, but here's Monday's show, which didn't get uploaded until late last night. Sorry!]Hey guys! It's Monday, which means Garfield is gonna binge-eat a bunch of Lasagnas and I'm grouchy.  Today's bi...

It's almost impossible to describe Payday: The Heist without bringing up Left 4 Dead. The crime caper is undeniably similar to Valve's zombie adventure, based as it is on four-player first-person co-op, providing challenging ...

After Steam's fairly recent launch on Mac systems, it did seem obvious that it would only be a matter of time before the platform would find its way onto Linux. Recently, Linux blogger Michael Larabel has been over to Va...

It's Friday again, which means it's time for me to break down for you the coming weekend of entertainment on Destructoid's Twitch.TV channel. I'm leaving Mash Tactics out of this one, as you can read all about the awesomeness...

I am bummed, you guys. Seriously bummed. Remember the trailer for that Left 4 Dead fan film from a couple weeks back? Looked good, didn't it? Well, shame on me for having any expectations. The full film, entitled Impulse 76,...

Videogame-related proposals are just so damn amazing. When you have great proposal scenarios like the one from Portal 2 involving the voice actor for GLaDOS getting on board, or the amusing Claptrap from Borderlands&nbs...

There are two things you need to know about this trailer for an upcoming Left 4 Dead fan film. It is sponsored heavily by Airsoft GI, a seller of airsoft paraphernalia, natch. It's even hosted on that company's YouTube page....
