MGS08: Left 4 Dead gameplay

MGS08: Left 4 Dead gameplay

Left 4 Dead was playable and most importantly filmable in its Xbox 360 version at the Micromania Games Show this year, and we got this kindy blurry video of that.

that gameplay footage was very underwhelming and slow.

Seriously, people are such drama queens. It's not even like the original character models were super iconic or anything.

Haha, I know right?

I mean, it wasn't just for the heck of making changes as well, they did it so that the designs were clearer. Now in the heat of zombie battle you'll be able to more easily recognise your friends from foes.

After all, this is a game, not America's next top survivor.

^^^ fantastic book wasn't it! anyone into well written horror books must buy this ultra realistic story of the Zombie Wars.

Anyway this is going to be a must buy from me, and did any1 watch Dead Set on E4 this last week?

Guys, seriously, I have been waiting for this ever since Turtle Rock showed off the A.I-Director for the first time and man I`m stoked for it!!. It`s graphix may look dated compared to the likes of Crysis, but with 200 zombies running at you, I hardly think you`ll be taking in the scenery lol.

In my opinion, it looks stunning and you know that it`ll run as smooth as butter anyway. What`s better than saving your friends lifes, zombies, guns, blood/gore in a FPS??....not much!!.

Buying this on pc and 360 on launch day!!!!.

Don't worry, they'll probably charge you for the original character model as DLC after the release

The old character models looked more realistic and less cartoonish (facial expressions remind me of Team Fortress). I don't mind playing any of the characters now honestly, although the african guy clearly rules over everyone

(the four look REALLY generic and stereotypical)

Much better and more original
Commented on 2008-11-02 15:16:21 In reply to bleachedsmiles
I don't think they'll do it. It's Valves game after all.

I have to say I like the new characters more. The old ones were not that bad either. That one character is a bit like Bennett, I am not sure if that is a good or bad thing :P

better? yes. more original? yes. best choice for gameplay? not so much with valve. ever since Turtle Rock merged with Valve they have added so many techniques used in previous valve games, and a big part of that was the character models. they said they felt that the old models were hard to spot from hordes of infected and didn't really give out an obvious silhouette.


now if u were to open up the dev commentary in Team Fortress 2, half of what they talk about is giving each character model a distinctive silhouette that stands out clearly. for Left 4 Dead, the new character models have brighter colors that really stand out from the rest of the setting; comparing that to the old grittier models, you may like the look of the old ones but i think you would prefer to play with a teammate you can actually see clearly. it was their choice to re-do the character models for the sake of better gameplay, and since its valve i trust that their judgment is for the best.

Yes. It was good - very, very gory.

It was excellent ! Heard they will bring it out on DVD very soon. Maybe even this week? For those who haven't seen this zombie movie (or should i say short tv serie), it's definitely worth a look. Zombies invading Big Brother show on E4 :)
Commented on 2008-11-03 01:44:28
A bit of a surprise ending. I thought at least one of them would survive. The DVD is out this week I believe, and only for like £11.

Definitely worth the purchase. It was very good indeed.
Commented on 2008-11-03 06:30:51
Looks very frantic. Zombies coming from every direction.

That's why you play it on PC. It'll look and play much better. This post better not get bullshit timed, because it's the truth.

No, every game looks the best on a 42 inch plasma, regardless if the actual resolution is lower or not :)

But i have a question, why did the dude playing constantly look at, and shoot at, the ground?? lol.. When there were zombies at the other end of a hall, he shot at the ground in front of his feet. lol
