Moving along in our PAX 2009 coverage done in cooperation with the fine folks at Left4Friends, we're taking a look at Left 4 Dead 2 (Xbox 360, PC), Valve's much-contested follow up to last year's Left 4 Dead.
Again we turn to Left4Friends as they let loose their armory on the zombie apocalypse and blast undead mutant murder machines into bits. Here's their take on the game.
Left 4 Dead 2 is the latest release by Valve and Turtle Rock Studios. Left 4 Dead 2 features a brand new cast of characters to duke it out in the remains of the world. The game features brand new weapons and introduces melee weapons as well as three new Infected.
The new infected goes as follows (beware, the following content may be bad for children under the age of 13 ):
- The Charger: The Tank's retarded cousin with the arm size of a drumstick. Not much of a threat, but does pack lots damage.
- The Jockey: Will hop on top of your head and you will lose control. You can try to get him off by moving and resisting but it barely works (in my case at least).
- The Spitter: Guess someone kept drinking some nuclear waste or acid before he became a zombie, much like the Smoker. Has a deformed face that reminds you of your grandma's thanksgiving dinner. Minus the tongue. (MY GRANDMA'S A GOOD COOK YOU *******!)
So far so good. There's a lot to say about Left 4 Dead 2, but the videos speak for themselves. See more below.
Left 4 Dead 2 is currently tracking a November 2009 release. Stay tuned for more PAX 2009 coverage from QJ.NET and Left4Friends.
