SDCC: Chatting about New Orleans in Left 4 Dead 2

So as many of you already know, I was born and raised in New Orleans, and despite the fact that it’s dirty and rundown from that whole hurricane thing, it’s still near and dear to my heart. I’ve been curious about the city’s inclusion in Left 4 Dead 2 ever since I first got word of it, and I had the opportunity to chat with Doug Lombardi and Chet Faliszek about these new levels and what inspired them to include so much of the good old South in their popular game series.

Lucky for me, they were more than willing to answer my burning questions, including which of my favorite bars I can expect to see while I blow zombies away and whether or not I can stop to sip an Irish coffee. Hit the jump to check out our interview. I have a feeling I’ll be exploring my beloved hometown in a whole new way very soon!
