Left 4 Dead


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....


All Ashly wanted to do was have a family fun night, but Anthony had to be a prissy little b*tch. Look at Papa Burch! He's totally a team player, not to mention "sassy and fierce." Oh, Papa Burch... Heads up: beware the Tank! HAWP: Left 4 Dead: The Sacrifice [GameTrailers]


This week, I look at the recent running joke that has become the videogame boycott. I look at why it's joke, why some boycotts are stupid, and why we shouldn't treat the concept with automatic disdain because of the bad ones.  It took me entirely far too long to draw the ludicrous pictures that accompany this week's video.


Last week, Valve made a promise that if 20,000 people on Steam could get the "Stream Crosser" achievement that they would release the upcoming downloadable campaign "Dead Air" for Left 4 Dead 2 early. Players jumped on board ...


Dark Horse Comics will be putting out a 304-page comic book featuring a selection of "Steam-powered" stories this November. Left 4 Dead's The Sacrifice, a previously published online comic, will headline the book, and it'll b...


Valve has been up front about wanting to get players involved with testing the Cold Stream campaign for Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam. As an extension of this, the studio has issued a challenge to the community, complete with its ow...


I do so enjoy being the whispering voice in the back of your head, urging you to buy videogames because they're slightly cheaper than normal. Heck, you aren't going to play most of them anyway, but just think -- one day, you ...


While we were off doing what it is we do on Friday evenings, the Left 4 Dead blog broke news of a hilariously awesome mutation for Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam. The mutation in question -- an encore -- makes it so that all Special ...


Mac and PC players who own Left 4 Dead 2 have been given a little treat: Cold Stream. It's a new, free, work-in-progress campaign being made by modder Matthew Lourdelet. While this is still in the beta phase, it's shaping up ...


Valve is simultaneously pulling from the familiar and switching it up with its next add-on pack for Left 4 Dead 2. The first details have come out by way of a blog post: four campaigns, three of which are the remaining origin...


It seems like there was just a zombie-themed sale on Xbox LIVE not long ago. Maybe we've been so bombarded with zombies lately that I can't keep my head straight. In any case, all week long you can save on the following items...


Valve is marked for its consistent quality, but not its consistent scheduling. The PC powerhouse is notorious for unpredictable releases and lengthy delays, but the developer/publisher claims that it isn't schizophrenic, and ...


What's that you say? Swagtacular only gets rubbish like 3D glasses and bottles of water? I refute your claims, sir. I refute it thus! Valve sent along a box o' swag, including these lovely little Left 4 Dead plushies. I take...


Valve has revealed the latest members of the Left 4 Dead plushie family. Joining the Boomer and now available for pre-order, we've got the Hunter and the Tank! Both of them are adorable and worthy of a snorgle, in their own d...


Now would be a good time to take a break from your Dead Rising 2 kick to get high off a different zombie-slaying experience: Left 4 Dead's "The Sacrifice" add-on. It's out today on Steam for free, and on Xbox 360 it'll run yo...


Own a Mac? Love zombies? Want to shoot things with a gun? Valve's got the answer. Left 4 Dead 2 is finally coming to trendy computers tomorrow, allowing people with names like Chase and Dawson to jump into the co-op undead bl...


There's nothing like a good cinematic every now and then, wouldn't you say? When done well, they offer insight into what the designers envisioned but weren't able to fully realize in-game because of restraints in time, money...


The next chapter in Valve's Left 4 Dead saga, "The Sacrifice," will be available on October 5, we've been told today. It'll be completely free for PC owners via Steam, but Xbox 360 gamers will have to pony up 560 MS Points. "...


It's week two for The Sacrifice, and that means we get to learn more about Zoey's past. It also means plenty of additional fuel for the dedicated Left 4 Dead fanfic writers, bless their souls. The comic delves into the typica...


As promised, the Left 4 Dead comic "The Sacrifice" is available today for your viewing pleasure online. Valve does a terrific job at implicitly delivering character and plot details through its games, but after the Team Fortr...


Remember that Left 4 Dead comic book Valve announced awhile back? Well, the wait is almost over -- the first of the four-part comic hits tomorrow, September 14. Spanning more than 150 pages, the comic will shed more light on ...


Valve The Midnight Riders is looking for a few creative individuals to help put together a video for its upcoming track, "Save Me Some Sugar." The song will makes its way into the soundtrack for the upcoming Left for Dead and...


Portal 2 coming to the PlayStation 3 with Steam support was Valve's big E3 surprise earlier this year. It wasn't, to most gamers' dismay, the reveal of Half-Life 3 or even Half-Life 2: Episode 3. Hang tight, because there are...


Valve has announced a brand new downloadable chapter for both Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2, The Sacrifice. Set before the events of The Passing, it will details exactly how one of the original four survivors met their grisly...


Following Gaming Heads' Team Fortress 2 Heavy statue, another figure based on a Valve property approaches: the Tank from Left 4 Dead. Like its predecessor, this one is rad and mighty expensive. A cool $299.99 will get you thi...


[Update] You can buy the Left 4 Dead poster! Joy! Head here. [Original Story] We've come across two really cool gaming posters so I've decided to cram them into one post despite the fact that they really have nothing to do wi...


Back in the early days of Left 4 Dead, there was this sudden influx of announcements for ambitious custom campaigns. How many of these creations panned out? Either I'm looking in all the wrong places, or many of them are eit...


Not that I don't love chainsaw massacres -- really now, I do -- but the real reason you're reading this post stems from the video up there. To coincide with with last week's "Last Man on Earth" mutation, Valve asked players ...


No co-op teammates, no AI bots, and no Common Infected. Just you as the only Survivor left racing toward the safehouse before Special Infected get a chance to jump you. This is the newest weekly mutation for Left 4 Dead 2, "L...
