Left 4 Dead 2 images

EA and Valve released these images of Left 4 Dead 2. Some may be a bit old but since they were not on Gamersyde, we figured it was worth sharing them with you.

The environment here looks almost CSS quality graphics wise. Not that great... Still this game ain't about the graphics. Great fun.

I love that she's wearing a Depeche Mode shirt. Can't wait to hear which Depeche Mode songs will appear in the game.

A purely fun experience, if not one of the most fun games to be realeased for this gen. Worth another 40 brick, though? Hmmm. Maybe if they bundled 1 and 2 on the same disc for that price, then it's worth it.

first one was fun hope this becomes like that

I'm also disappointed they didn't bump up the graphics. It doesn't even look as nice as HL2 Episode 2. Ah well it's still great fun.

heh those shots made me glad that my course is using the UE3 engine over the source engine.
Commented on 2009-10-13 23:30:08
Yeah source engine seems to be completely outdated now. Did any other games other than valve games ever use the Source engine?

I would much rather get my hands on HL ep3 this fall. I know this franchise has a big fanbase, but I really can't seem to get excited about this game so far. I think it coming along the same time as MW2 is a really big factor in that. I don't see myself finding time for much of any other action game for quite a while after MW2 arrives.

Too many shooters release in the fall, why go toe to toe with MW2?

Hopefully the same can be done for MW1 and 2, Halo 1, 2 and 3, and Assassins Creed 1 and 2. Heck, just do it for all sequels!

You know what I mean, though. I don't know what it is, but to me these games don't feel worthy of the full price because their production value just seems a bit lacking for what you get out of the box. It's soley a linear MP experience, and this second game just feels like a hashed expansion rather than anything progressive. I felt the same way about Portal also. Would you pay the full bean for that? I wouldn't. I think Valve realized that and thus packed it in with the Orange Box. Something the same should be done here.

I dunno, the main character models are streets ahead, eerily realistic, but yeah, the environments and props have that flat, dead feel to them. There's no self-shadowing on the items either, by the looks of things, which I think adds to the problem.

No doubt it will a superb game, but the Source engine is really starting to show it's age when you see it in the cold light of day!

About the game

What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you're not gonna get good viewport performance in most 3D apps with a geforce chip (50 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and it not having a Quadro gpu limits its professional 3D software use. (51 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as i say, i'm a 3D guy too. (51 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the entry model is a bit short on ram, having the top gtx980m gpu is probably overkill for most use, especially if your working in the adobe package. (52 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog mainly though, as a 2D and 3D artist, a workstation is just better. i take power and functionality over style personally. but it's worked for apple, maybe MS have a success on their hands (53 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: as for price. i wouldn't want the touch, it's not worth the added cost. and it's 3000 for entry level. realistically any self respecting artist would be getting the 4200 version. (55 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: the dial looks quite impractical to me. but then i like having the cintiq remote on my lap. i don't like the arm strain associated with on-screen buttons in that situation. (57 minutes ago)
