deviantART member Botjira makes amazing collages of video game, TV show, anime and other geeky characters. Even though the individual pieces that are patched together to make each work are not that small, they’re still quite detailed.
The thing about zombies is that they’re kind of hard to get rid of, and it seems like the same is true of zombie-fighting survivors. The first DLC pack is already scheduled for Left 4 Dead 2, and the cast of the original – Bill, Louis, Zoey, and the everything-hating Francis – are set to make an appearance in the new campaign.
The new campaign, fittingly named “The Passing,” is described as the most important in all the games, as it’s the culmination of everyone’s struggle for survival.
I can’t think of much that’s less appetizing than zombies, but maybe that’s just me. Maybe painting gingerbread men as comic versions of the baddies from Left 4 Dead 2 can impart a sense of empowerment, a reversal, a sort of “in Russia, you eat zombies” kind of deal.
Okay, I know. Bug fixes aren’t the most exciting thing in the world, but bear with me on this one. There are a few essential updates to Left 4 Dead 2 on Steam, and if you’ve been victim to one of these glitches, you’re probably jumping for joy.
Left 4 Dead 2 is bringing all sorts of new zombie mayhem to the table. No more is the apocalyptic experience just about running from point A to point B (where the transportation is!); the sequel is bringing mission-style multiplayer in a new game type called Scavenge.
So what are you scavenging?
If you’re one of the folks not convinced by the necessity of Left 4 Dead 2 when there’s a perfectly good Left 4 Dead game already around, released just last year, then next month’s demo may help you ruminate further on the possibilities of zombie-hunting in New Orleans.
Valve isn’t really known for pumping out sequels at lightning pace, like a lot of game companies, so despite all of the bigger news coming out of E3, this is certainly one of the surprises. Not only are they preparing a sequel to the wildly popular zombie game Left 4 Dead, but it’s coming out this fall–only a year after the original.
Only a year?
