Join me on the Bandwagon Jumping Party!

I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical for the past few months concerning one of the more hyped games coming out soon. No, not Mirror's Edge, I've not been interested in that, well, ever, but Left 4 Dead. While Mirror's Edge is an overhyped "let's put trial and error jump puzzles in an FPS but take out the whole shooting thing" game, Left 4 Dead revels in it's shooting glory. But having not played or seen any of it, I was left wondering, will it be any good?

So the demo came out a short time ago on the 'ol XBL, and seeing how I'm a whore for demos I downloaded it. As all of my friends were busy doing something else (i.e. :( playing the demo with each other) I threw my headset on, said fuck it, and loaded up a public match. That's right, I gave the opportunity to twelve year old homophobic racists the world over to join me in a game. Luckily enough, I got matched up with three people with headsets that were already post-puberty. And we started.

Jesus fuck, Left 4 Dead is a goddamn masterpiece.

Based solely off the demo, I'm hooked. I could play those 2 levels over and over, and, judging from last night, have. There's nothing quite like turning a corner, or opening a door, or looking up and seeing a stream of zombies plow through coming straight at you. The fear, the anxiety, the lack of health, the team aspect, it's straight one of the funnest games I think I've ever played. However, there is one problem with this game that needs to be addressed.

Assholes with no headsets. No, seriously, fuck you and the horse you rode in on you goddamn rambo attempting son of a bitch. This is a team based game, and communication plays a large role in it. If I can't talk to you, you can't hear me, and you decide that RUNNING AHEAD WITH NO BACKUP is a good idea, I have a nice fire over here that you can die in. Well, that and shy people. Me and Kryp were playing last night with Rambo Jr. and a guy that didn't say anything until half-way through the second level. Which is odd considering Kryp and me were having a conversation for the other level and a half, and not a word was spoken from said third party.

So yeah, basically, I've hopped on the bandwagon, drank the goddamn Jim Jones Kool-Aid and am super pumped for the retail version. For all the love Gears 2 has recieved, it's about to become a lot quieter on those servers, as L4D is poised to become THE game for the holidays. And for the "I can't play this game on console because without thuper precision and headshots the whole time I suck and die," I suck at keyboard/mouse set-up and have gotten quite adapt at the whole "contoller FPS controls", and in a zombie horde rush game, aiming is not critical, it's more of a "point and fire with rapid abandon" type of game, so :P

For Wiisucks:
Hi! My name is Jack Klassen.! I'm a completely ordinary teenage boy from San Diego, California. My interests include soccer, surfing, writing poetry, and luge. I am homeschooled by my father who fought in the Korean War and was exposed to nerve gas. He is kind of crazy but I still love him. We got the Internet two years ago and I started making new friends on Yahoo! messenger. Surprisingly, most of these new friends were older men who wanted to have illegal, underage sex with me. Needless to say, I got a boner like a rocketship and cybersex quickly became my favorite thing in the entire world. Wait, did I say boner like a rocketship? I meant my vagina got as wet as Lake Titicaca. I started saving all of the hot chat sessions I was having with the Pakistanis, lesbians, child molesters and other monsters who were instant messaging me all day and all night, and I decided to put them up here on this website so you can see exactly how disgusting the entire human race is. Since then, I have been in a waterskiing accident that mangled my genitals beyond repair, been diagnosed with cerebral palsy, brain cancer, and Crohn's disease, learned to speak Urdu and French, covered my naked body in superglue, went to French lesbian camp, made a Hindu eat a roast beef sandwich out of my vagina, and ruined perfectly good cybersex for at least one hundred people.
