I'm broke... Left 4 Dead Too many others to count
Ripped from the forums:
I'm Paul, and I hail from a little state called Illinois. I'm currently a sophomore at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
I'm a child of the 90s and grew up on Nintendo, starting on an old SNES console before moving onto the N64 (r.i.p.) and Gamecube. I also had a Playstation, along with countless broken controllers (damned X buttons aren't built for mashing!) Oh, not to mention my old Game Boys and all the batteries I laid to waste. At some point I defected to the PC and Xbox 360, which I am currently playing.
I've dabbled in many games, but for some reason I always seem to come back to FPS and adventure games. I don't know why, and I don't question it much. If you're ever on any game like Counter-Strike: Source, I'll most likely be the guy getting my ass handed to me...and laughing it up.
I've got a thing for music, which probably explains why I'm so deaf now. Doesn't mean I'm gonna turn down the volume any time soon. I dig zombies and have gradually transitioned from the traditional Romero types to the HOLY-SHIT sprinters.
Unless you've been living under a rock, Left 4 Dead just got released on Tuesday. No doubt many of you are mowing down crowd after crowd of Infected as I type.
As we've already seen, Anthony called dibs on "not-Francis" Bill, Jim called dibs on "also not-Francis" Louis, and most recently, Conrad has called dibs on "not-Fran... er, not-Zoey" Francis. I have no clue who's going to get dibs on Zoey, but frankly you all can keep her and the other survivors. Know why?
I have dibs on the Boomer.
Yeah, I said it. So many of you are fighting over four humans. Humans! Go on and delay your death for as long as possible while I take a look at how the other half lives.
He makes obesity fun
Imagine this monstrosity charging down the streets at you. And by charging, I mean waddling. How is that not awesome? And take a look at that gut. Puts ordinary beer bellies to shame.
He'll puke all up on your face
The Boomer's primary attack is to vomit all over a survivor. This temporarily blinds a survivor, which could cause them to panic and waste ammo firing into empty air. Now this is one Infected that enjoys getting his hands dirty.
He runs the goddamn horde
What sets the Boomer apart from the rest of the Infected is that he has the ability to summon entire hordes by puking on a survivor. Kinda like a necromancer, only less emo and more awesome.
If he goes down he's taking you with him
Why else would he be called the Boomer? The Smoker may leave behind some crappy smoke, but the Boomer blows up in chunks, dealing damage to any nearby survivors and possibly covering one in vomit. And we all know what follows. It's one helluva "fuck you" to the humans.
He's not a filthy survivor
So why dibs?
Well, actually, technically I'm not supposed to be able to call dibs on a randomly chosen character. But I'm gonna do it anyway. 'Cause I said so.
Hey, if it's good enough for Anthony and Jim, then it's good enough for me.
