The Ten Commandments of L4D(2)!

While we wait for the next batch to hit, here's a little peek into what's on my F1 to F10 keys: The Ten Commandments of L4D(2)!

Re: Left 4 Dead rules of combat

[Essay-Rant] Today I was playing in an expert campaign with a team that wasn't quite up to the challenge. They did a good job of highlighting four things "expert" players ought to have down : Area clearing , Situational Awareness , Contact Reports and Areas of Responsibility . So, I need to vent a l...

Re: Left 4 Dead

Some thoughts on difficulty and online play for the newer players: IMO singleplayer is really just tutorial mode. Once you've got the basics down, there's not much reason to go back to it, with the exception of earning a few achievements. Normal is a walk in the park, advanced is usually a lot of fu...

Re: Left 4 Dead

I said i was going to be patient for DLC, but now its starting to wear on my patience, it's long overdue. Oh, I can definitely see your point, but I've been playing Valve products since 2000 and as a result I've grown used to waiting an eternity for their updates. :P I still remember the long wait ...

Re: COZS Food Drive

I'll spot you Madwolf - I've seen NOTLD enough times already, would hate to miss REC tho. :)

I'll give you a call a few hours beforehand to iron out whatever details may exist.

I can also act as backup transportation in case we're hauling chairs and whatnot.

Has anybody got Nothing Special and if so would you like to help me get it sometime? PS: Is there a post where people post their XBox Live names?

Re: Left 4 Dead

True. Rushing (or more precisely, "event surfing") can work well if done intelligently. Therein lies the problem. :roll: And that was epic, MeatshieldChris. If I'd been on the other team, I would have told everyone in public chat in no uncertain terms that you were the only worthwhile player on the ...

Re: Left 4 Dead

Safety First is easy. ... Just punch things. If you use only pistols (and no pipe bombs or molotovs), you'll get the Akimbo Warrior unlock, too. Technically speaking, to get Akimbo Assassin you can still use grenades. You just can't fire bullets out of anything besides your pistols, and that includ...

Re: Things I learned about zombie survival from Left 4 Dead

Learned something else, it is possible to not anger the creepy little girl within about 5 feet. The Director was being a mega dick to us (we were going for Do Not Disturb) and in Blood Harvest, before you get in the train car, there she is, dead center in the middle of the bridge about 25 feet from...

Re: Any advice for a first time writer?

As much as is possible, stick to what you know. The trouble is, writing any kind of story - especially one like yours! - will take you outside your own sphere of knowledge more often than not. This means you'll need to do a good amount of research, or just be willing to pull something out of your as...

Re: Left 4 Dead

I find just hosing full auto is a bad idea.. it does not do much good and your accuracy goes down. the only time it works well is when you have narrow field of fire with a lot of people <Zombies> Coming at you down it. Then yes, it's awesome. But most of the time I stick with burst fires and pick a...

Re: Things I learned about zombie survival from Left 4 Dead

One lesson this game has taught me, if a demonic little cheerleader girl is crying to herself in the corner, GTFO. No, srsly, your dumb ass can run up and attempt to shoot her if you want, I'm not taking the risk that it MIGHT actually be a little girl, and the bigger risk of it being a demonic lit...

In the words of Denzel Washington in Training Day, talking about his shotgun... "I'm surgical with this bitch!" What he said. ;) If you take the autoshotgun and use it to defend teammates, please be surgical with it - I don't like losing more health to your poor aim than the zombies you're "protect...

Re: You know it's getting serious when...

Ammo goes into the magazine or cylinder. It doesn't take an engineering degree to figure out which way. Point it towards the target, line the sights up, pull the trigger. Repeat. Don't poke it at shit you don't want to poke holes in, be it the cat, the kids, or the TV. Don't let it lay where your k...

Re: Good survival book wrapped as fiction, Patriots:

Read the book, liked it, (and loved the descriptive Amazon.com phrase, "Doomer porn" :lol: ), though I had many of the same reservations that have been mentioned so far: You can practically see him checking off his list of gear. This made some of the dialog feel pretty forced. It's definitely preach...

Re: Things I learned about zombie survival from Left 4 Dead

Sometimes you gotta run, but in general, "slow is smooth, smooth is fast." 8) A balanced weapon loadout works wonders. Play nice with others. Share your healing items, call out any useful items you find, watch your teammates' backs, and they'll (probably) do the same for you. Apparently one cannot ...

I can easily hand out and/or post flyers in the downtown denver area. Any funky legal restrictions I should be aware of regarding that, BTW?
