Left 4 Dead Movie

The introductory movie from Left 4 Dead is now online for your scarification. The clip is the cinematic that sets the story for Valve's upcoming multiplayer zombie shooter, though it should be considered a spoiler for anyone who thought the humans in the game would end up making friends with the zombies. The clip is available translated into five different languages on Steam News, and downloads of the English version can also be found on ActionTrip, Gamer's Hell, and MyGameTrailers.

Claiming that there's "no AI" in the game because you're just fighting zombies is fucking retarded. It demonstrates that you don't know a single thing about what goes into creating games. Let me create a quick, incomplete list of what the Director AI does:

-Pays attention to your current state, pacing the game's spawns
-Controls post-processing effects on your system to help build the mood
-Controls the music based on all of the above factors
-Controls when and where the boss zombies spawn in addition to regular zombies.
-Controls how regular zombies move - that includes crawling over cars, crawling up buildins, and overall navigating a very complex terrain - not a trivial task for AI development
-Controls how each of the 5 unique boss zombies work - even more complex than the regular hoard zombies.
-Controls the hunter, climbing up walls and jumping to attack
-Controls the smoker, hiding in the shadows, and using his 40-50ft tongue to attack
-Controls the Tank, Witch, and Boomer as well
-Many other things I'm no doubt forgetting about

No AI in the game? Fuck that shit. Go learn a thing or two before spouting bullshit
