Most Pokemon aren’t terribly frightening. Take Pikachu and Weezing, for example. One is a tiny yellow rodent with a goofy smile and Nutcracker-esque red cheek circles and the other is a pair of dull looking floating orbs.
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.
YouTube user Chubzdoomer is creating a Super Mario Bros. map for Left4Dead, and its not for claustrophobic people.
I get that this map is a first person view of a side scrolling game, but the design leaves almost no room for evading enemies.
So did you know that Portal and Left 4 Dead actually came out back in the 1980s? Yeah, me neither. But the guys at Gamervision claim to have dug up these “lost” 1986 commercials for the two 21st-century games.
Haven’t played Left 4 Dead yet because your computer is ancient? Well now you can!.. sort of. Just download Eric Ruth’s 8-bit version of Left 4 Dead. It’s the same maps, the same monsters, and the same characters, except in glorious 8-bit!
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.
Next month, Left 4 Dead may just take a turn for the retro with an unofficial 8-bit version. The video of the NES-style Left 4 Dead has been kicking around for a few weeks – and like any good zombie, it has risen from the dead for us to admire and then blast with a shotgun.
Plain ol’ holiday cards can just be so bland: stars, snowy evenings, cultural or religious imagery… eh. You know what I like in my holidays? Co-op games and zombies. All the better if I can get them all on one little piece of paper which I can then send to all my friends.
This wouldn’t be the first L4D + Xbox 360 combo we’ve featured here on technabob, but I think it’s my new favorite.
Modder Tjpitbull decked out his 360 with a complete Left 4 Dead inspired look, covering the entire case with a distressed military green paintjob on both the console and controller.
You know what goes well with guns and gore? First aid kits. And thanks to the ThinkGeek folks, you can keep yours close. So close, in fact, that it’s two dimensional.
I’m pretty sure a picture of a first aid kit isn’t going to help you much, in the event of a real zombie apocalypse, though, so as cool as this t-shirt is, please, prepare accordingly.
This is how you raise the bitchin’-ist child ever to toddle across a living room floor: give ’em zombies from their first days in the cradle. Come the apocalypse, the kid that slumbers under a Left 4 Dead mobile is gonna be one prepared little zombie hunter.
Four brave survivors must stand against the tide of an undead minifig army. Armed with few weapons, two unfortunately bald heads, and a bag full of snappy one-liners, they will repel the brick zombies.
Alright, take a moment to admire the beauty and detail.
Halloween-party-throwing foodie gamers – is that a demographic? If so, folks, it’s your day. If you have been dying to suck the sugar-force from a gelatinous Metroid, don’t worry. You’re covered.
Strawberries, green jello, apple… and no strong stomach required.
You know what goes really well with Left 4 Dead? The Mushroom Kingdom. It’s genius! How did it take so long?
Bright colors, blocky environments, and hordes of raging infected running around among the zombie-like goombas.
“First aid here!” And by here, I potentially mean in your house, stashed somewhere convenient for grabbing in the event of zombie apocalypse.
Left 4 Dead fans are pretty industrious, but replica first aid kits is definitely on the more creative end of the crafty spectrum.
The bloody hand of Left 4 Dead is one of those images that sticks out–partially, I’m sure, because of the wonderful atmosphere of the game itself, in which those bloody handprints are so often wielded to chilling effect.
