Zombie fest� Left4Dead demo.

Left4dead suprises me, the first hour of gameplay of the demo on STEAM yesterday was like hell: servers were not working, bugs, etc. Lets say that personally I had a bad start with the multiplayer side of the game.
But a day later and probably more than a patch later the game is running fine.
I was on a team, we were noobs, playing the best we could but still we needed like an hour to make it trhought the level, finally learning all the aspects of this demo, the demo level itself, and starting to understand the tactics behind the zombie game.

The great thing about Left4Dead is that you can play it again and again, the experience is going to be different since you will be playing with different people and also the AI called Director will take charge of the zombies and the �special� zombies (like the tank or the witch), will never appear on the same spot. So you will never find youself in the same situation. Weapons and ammo with pills and medkits will pop up on different places everytime depending on how well the team is doing, also courtesy of the Director.
They will kill you, and maybe your teammates and you will have to start again since the last safe house if you are all death, but then you will not always find death, some team member can revive you if you are on your back, heal you with a medkit. If your team manages to move on even when you are dead they will be able to rescue you from a room and you will be back on track�. So you wont have to wait until they are done.

The best part so far?
Is fun.

I didn�t actually knew what to expect from such a heavy multiplayer game. And I know this is only the demo, I have to wait for the full game, but the impression is good, very good, very fun cooperative mp gaming.
If you don�t have it yet, don�t think it twice. The game is a blast to play in multiplayer.
Go, preorder it. If you are a PC gamer you may buy it for 45 usd on steam and start playing the demo right now.

About Veltone of us since 11:54 PM on 05.31.2007

Iam a gammer from the harsh uruguayan jungle (we dont even have a jungle down here, too cold, go and do some wikipedia of Uruguay). I used to do a podcast in spanish about videogames at Radio LevelUp but I dont do it anymore... anyway those guys are there still making it so you can give it a try if you understand spanish
And i can say "�aca �aca �aca" and i know how to pronoaunce it well since im a spanish speaker, so Im a superior race.
A couple of idiots may find funny that I dont have good english grammar, but again, they are probably idiots since they only speak/write one language...

Most of my time in the internet is because of games. I love videogames so much that i sleep with my girlfriend and my ds, at the same time... i call that a "threesome" and my humor doesnt get anything better than that.
Mostly im a PC gamer, i was going to buy a 360 but faulty crappy hardware told me not to since if it goes RRoD here I would have lost my money, and as a man Im entitled to the sweat of my brow. I want to fuck the Wii and I believe the PS3 is going to be the first console in space.

In the "real" life (come on, internet now is part of our lives anyway...), I study medicine (takes a lot of time and I cant spend enough of my time playing videogames). Is not what you would call a marriage made in heaven, if I wanted to game more I should have sutdy something related to pc�s, but I grown surrounded by computers and stuff so I chose the bio stuff instead. Anyway, little time to play video games if you dont want my biographical shit.

And the main reasson I play games for the story behind them. I love well written stories like Half Life series, of course Portal (kind of a Valve fan). Other great games include World Of Warcraft (not currently playing, actually I was never hardcore, but I enjoyed the experience a lot), and of course the classics like System Shock 2. Other great titles had stuck with me over the years, classics adventure games like Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Grim Fandango.

So, best game experiences:
Half Life 2 (and the original Half Life of course).
System Shock 2
Grim Fandango
Indiana Jones and the Fate Of Atlantis
Monkey Island
