MORE for you zombie lovers out there
« on: December 25, 2008, 01:27:54 AM »
Haven't tried it yet* but word is that Valve Software's Left 4 Dead is the "Zombie Apocalypse" action game.


* not in the market for new games, and my current system would probably choke on it, maybe even cough up blood.

havnt played either but yes, it is supposed to be the best.
I'd like to hear my options, so I could weigh them, what do you say?
Five pounds?  Six pounds? Seven pounds?

I don't have a gaming console but I played Left 4 Dead at a friend's house. It was LOTS of bloody fun.

I don't have a gaming console ...

You appear to have a PC (or are you one of those Mac people?) L4D is a FPS game, and therefore is best-suited to the keyboard-and-mouse control scheme.

I'm still running an Athlon 1700, with 1GB of memory, IDE hard drives and an AGP video card, so I doubt I have enough power to run the game acceptably.

My kind of game, if somebody give me the God code.

I'm more of a turn based gamer.

My son got an Xbox 360 for Christmas, with SEGA Superstar Tennis on it, and it includes a zombie tennis game (example video here).  It includes zombie moaning and groaning sounds.

Sorry, Left 4 Dead.
