Another Anthony Go Bye-Bye Post

Fuck it. I spend a lot of time regretting things. Not super-cool consequential things like bungee jumping or quitting my job or going to France for a year or throwing off societal conventions. Dull, awkward, English stuff like making stupi...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Icycle. Mind. Blown.

I havenít done this in a while. Still a bit tender. A little unrefined. A game that makes you start writing again is one that you donít want to fuck up, so bare with me if this sounds a little off. Icycle is a short Flash game that you s...

 
 
 
 

L4D2 Demo: Play As Infected and Other Hacks

Edit: Looks like this came out two days ago, sorry if this is old news. It happened last year with L4D, and now it's happening again this year with another woefully insecure demo for public dissection. If you've played through the demo a c...

 
 
 
 

Left 4 Dead: Crash Course

Crash Course is good. Very good. I'd go so far as to say that, with the exception of certain moments in the other campaigns, it is the best versus campaign I've played so far. It combines the best elements of versus and compresses them. T...

 
 
 
 

L4D Crash Course Live Stream

Xbox 360 users can download and play Crash Course right now. For us PC troglodytes, we have to wait till valve feels like giving us the update. So to tide us over, here is a live stream of the game being played.

 
 
 
 

Riff.

Riff could be a really shitty game. You might refer to it as completely unremarkable and emotionally paralytic. I wouldnít even call it a great amount of fun, not compared to the standards that some free games have. You might also want to...

 
 
 
 

Left 4 Dead 2: Grenade Launcher (video heavy)

Tonnes of Left 4 Dead 2 footage here, the main one showing off the new nade launcher. Can't honestly see it's purpose in-game but who cares; it's a nade launcher. Maybe it'll be useful for clearing crowds of infected from an incapped surv...

 
 
 
 

Rohrer / Crawford Discussion Here

The full video is at the bottom of this post. A very nice German friend of mind and budding contender with Adam Dork for Loveliest Man Alive has recorded, synced and uploaded the interview with and discussion between Jason Rohrer and Chri...

 
 
 
 

Connections: Jade Empire to Left 4 Dead

What the fuck is this? Iíll tell you. Itís a thing where I trawl IMDB with the intent to link two games together via their themes, names, cast and crew. Itís not meant to be short or direct, itís designed to be exploratory; discovering weir...

 
 
 
 
 
 

5 Reasons Why That BG&E Trailer Could Be In-Engine

It would be naive to assume that this is in-game footage. Aside from the obviously scripted camera, the animation looks a little too smooth, the physics a tad too realistic and the vistas a bit too gorgeous. But scripted events can still ...

 
 
 
 

Maturity in Video Games (Podtoid Question)

I kinda feel a little self conscious writing this because it seems a bit self-referential, but whatever. I knew the question would come out wrong on Podtoid, so allow me to clarify. The question I asked boiled down to: When or how will th...

 
 
 
 

One Week Memory: Playstation 2 Rumours

Last time I said that Shit be unreal. Right now, Shit be dipping its toe in the waters of real, wearing gold plated armbands of respect and wearing jewel encrusted goggles of some other hip-hop term Iím not down with. Simply, this one is ...

 
 
 
 

One Week Memory: Left 4 Dead

I donít like games magazines at all. The price is a major off-put, they are slow - often weeks late with the big news and they are no better written than most online publications. The additional numerous mistakes and typos are like the fe...

 
 
 
 
 
 

A Fun Game

Arena Wars is fun, attractive and simple, yet infinitely replayable. Put simply, itís what Unreal Tournament would be like if it was an RTS. The true depth, however, is something you experience by playing it. It isnít a Triple A title, bu...

 
 
 
 

Seven Ways to Get More Fun Out of Left 4 Dead

A few weeks ago, I was playing through No Mercy on Expert for what was probably the twelfth time, and I realised I wasnít having any fun any more. This was probably because I had been burning through the same map over and over until my ey...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Beyond Good and Evil 2 Finally Greenlit

Beyond Good and Evil has been Greenlit after several months of delays and speculation. It has had a rough ride. The original was released in Q4 of 2003 to massive critical acclaim and poor sales. If you haven't played it, go buy it on Stea...

 
 
 
 

Skulltag

Studies have proven that you are all wanks. But enough about that, letís talk about something that could help you diminish your wankieness. Skulltag is an engine-port-mod thing for Doom. Iíve seen a fair few doom mods flying around the I...

 
 
 
 

Trine Looks Different and Amazing

It does. Trine is a PSN exclusive from the look of it, which means tough luck for me. But I want to post this trailer because the kind of person who frequents Destructoid should like the look of it. Enjoy!

 
 
 
 

Use Your Pain Pills

If Left 4 Dead had a soundtrack, that would be the title of the album. I will now provide an argument as to why you should put down your med kit and pop some pills instead. 1. 80% of pills go to waste Just think of those poor pills. Th...

 
 
 
 

The Valve Effect

Games, like life, cheese and Bill Bailey, are things that I will never really understand, but enjoy anyway while I make haphazard, self-centred guesses at why I love them. Well, not so much life. Right now, I am going to coin a phrase tha...

 
 
 
 

Shortblog: Left 4 Dead

I'm not doing an overly elaborate write up this time, just a brief summery. Mainly because I can't be arsed to get the filler pictures and make them funny. I played Left 4 Dead at Eurogamer a few weeks back and I was underwhelmed. I put th...
