So do you guys play both L4D and L4D2 on the computer? I've got L4D2 on the computer but never bothered with getting the first one since I already had it on 360, and the second is basically the same game but a bit better. Well, a lot better actually...what with guitars and frying pan weapons.
Armand, I don't think you're even in my Steam group of chums ... add me! Username's mboone
If you're all still on the first game I might have to wait until you graduate to the sequel.

We're on the cusp of graduating actually. We've got The Sacrifice to play through then I think we're ready to go. I'm most excited about the procedural levels with L4D2 because the set-in-stone levels of L4D were just an open invitation to arseholes wanting to rush each level in versus mode. Procedural levels should have (hopefully) stopped that or at the very least reduced it.
Ouch, ouch, ouch.
What was happening Fink? Do you know? Because I sure as hell didn't. We were a mess en masse. And I kept shooting you for some reason. Simply put, we either need to lower the difficulty (not happening) or come up with a much better plan.
I found that meleeing (knocking back) zombies as I ran for the petrol worked better than trying to kill the blighters. Dash while meleeing, pick up petrol, melee, melee, melee, throw down to lower levels, dash while meleeing, pick up petrol... etc. When you're cornered or there are too many then let rip and keep moving.
The kiosk on the ground floor looks like a good spot to hole up in because you're protected from all sides (including above) meaning that smokers and jockeys can't move you too far away, chargers can't get inside easily and tanks have difficulty climbing over the counter. Spitters and boomers might be a problem but they're bright green and fat respectively so they should be easier to spot. There're weapons and supplies inside it too. I've no idea why we haven't tried using the kiosk more.
There also seems to be a lot of useful items on the upper levels so sending one person up there sort of wastes them. Two people should go up, meleeing and picking up supplies and petrol, while two stay on the ground floor. And one more thing, puke is a great thing to use on tanks and to distract the horde. Puke will save us all.
It was my first time playing so I was panicky figuring out the basics while hell broke loose on my neck. And you shot me. Rather often. I did set you on fire. All is fair in spectacular failure.
On the second to last attempt I realized those piles of boxes were ammo. That was helpful. Middle of the attempts I realized I was supposed to fling the gas cans from the upper level and not waddle down the stairs like a UPS driver delivering himself to the zombies as the stuffed crust daily deal. With all the chaos I never really got the voices pegged so someone yelling coming with me resulted in Fink following the guy moving. Often not the correct guy.
I'll play a little single player on weeny to learn the basics. Still mystified why my mic suddenly stopped working months ago. It may be the input went kaput but I fear it's some dead obvious setting I changed while half asleep but can no longer find. You know, get stoned and set your TV to Spanish language and the next day unable to undo it.
It was a ton of fun. My favorite sequence was:
I run over to revive someone (forget who).
Jockey spawns and rides me.
The revived and other two kill the jockey and speed off for cans.
Smoker spawned behind us and roped my mute ass into a dark corner seconds after I was freed
Thirty seconds later, FINK IS DEAD? WHERE THE HELL IS FINK? OH GOD TANK RUN
meet at the car!
Everyone burns to death
Back to the staging area
There are pills in the urInal
grooowrrrr! [menace menace] rrrrowwwr!
You guys are bastards and I hate your being at home-ness and your schedules! Damn your British and Los Angeleno asses to hell!
If any of you are on sometime Saturday afternoon (MY afternoon-- the center of the universe afternoon: EST!) then I am cajoling you all into a long bloody round of L4D2!
If being wrong's a crime I'm serving forever
EST is the natural time zone. I'd prefer if all things were done EST, for my own convenience.
I'm thrilled I found a team that sucks at L4D as much as I do. No one yells at me when I shoot them, anonymous people (GREGG) steal my attempts to bandage up Armand, it's all perfect. No one even gave me shit when I exhibited my famous enthusiastic suicidal altruism. Now, Fink kept shooting me when he was supposed to be "reviving" me, but I choose to put that down to bad key mapping.
Life is the misery we endure between disappointments.
