Valve's co-op zombie shooter has made quite a few references to Simon Pegg's classic Shaun of the Dead in the past, from Louis' costume in Left 4 Dead 1 to the cricket bat melee weapon in Left 4 Dead 2. Today, Pegg himself been getting to grips with the latter game, and he seems to like it!

"Left 4 Dead 2 inserted. I have not come this far, to die now. Yo zombies ... Let's go," Tweets Pegg. "Using the cricket bat. Feels right."

Pegg's initial impressions are glowingly positive: "This game is all kinds of awesome. Love the Zs too. Somehow fast is OK here. Good combo of Romero lethargy and 28 Days beserker rage. Sweet!"

So there you have it. Simon Pegg is an authority on all things undead, and he approves of Left 4 Dead 2. In case you needed any further proof that this game is terrific fun, you now have Pegg's seal of approval. He even likes the fact that they're the fast-style "Infected" as opposed to his preferred shamblers. 

Now all we need to do is work out his Gamertag and stalk him ... uh ... I mean, not stalk him.

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 ...more

Before Minecraft, Notch made a crappy Sonic fan game

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...more

Carmack's Oculus rift and Half-Life left for Left 4 Dead

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?more
