Left 4 Dead 2 Details

The Left 4 Dead 2 Interview on bit-tech.net offers a chat with Chet, talking with Valve's Chet Faliszek about Left 4 Dead 2, the upcoming multiplayer zombie-shooter sequel. The conversation covers the game, as well as the initial backlash that surrounded its announcement, which is also covered in a blurb on VideoGamer.com where Chet says that "I once joked that we could put $20 in a box and charge $10 for it, and someone’s going to complain." The bit-tech.net article also offers hands-on impressions of Left 4 Dead 2, and a first-hand account of gameplay can likewise be found in the Left 4 Dead 2 Preview on IGN.UK. Finally, a blurb on IncGamers indicates Valve is toying with a fourth boss for Left 4 Dead 2, which will contain at least three new bosses, a post on GameDaily indicates Valve is looking at creating cross-game play between Left 4 Dead 2 and the original Left 4 Dead, and IGN unveils the cricket bat as a new L4D2 weapon, the second such Shaun of the Dead homage (after Hellgate London). Thanks Dagok.

Personally I enjoyed L4D when it first came out but suddenly it became very very uninteresting. The gameplay is very simple without even much variation in the weapons, and making people play the boomer has to be the single most disgusting idea ever borne from the mind of humanity. The game itself is grim and unrelenting and while this initially makes for very fast-paced gameplay, at some point it inevitably becomes the same old stuff over and over. More/longer campaigns and more weapons would have helped, but, eh, ultimately it's just another horror survival zombie game.

L4D2 does look superior to L4D, but I'm burned out on horror survival games.. still, I'm sure Valve or whoever made the actual game made lots of cash, because I can't imagine L4D was difficult to make on any level - oh, and it's still buggy months after being released.
