Left 4 Dead Demo = Awesome

Oh ho ho ho, the demo came out at 3PM and as it reached that time I was getting as much of my report done as possible.

So the time came and it started to unlock, took ages and for some reason my friends beat me to the unlocking despite the fact I have 20 MB and they do not.

Anyway we started a game and couldn't even launch it, some error about no dedicated servers and what not and if we wanted to LAN but a LAN means "Local Area Network" so we never tried that.

But eventually we couldn't figure out why we couldn't start an online game so I tried the LAN thing and it worked, we were playing together :S

So we've all seen videos and knew what to expect and since it's on the Half Life 2 engine + improved L4D exclusive tech, we felt used to it.

We thought we'd try the hardest difficulty because an old interview said "The Witch" would only be in hard mode. Well we got raped the first time, we shat ourselves as 50 odd "infected" ran towards us from all directions.

To sum it up, I haven't laughed so much in ages, I danced next to the Witch to which my friend then shone his light on her causing her to jump on me and rip me to pieces. Oh good laughs.

The full game is out Nov 18th but if you pre-order you can play the demo so I'd really suggest it but you really need to play with friends as from what I read, there are a lot of people who don't work well together.

Here's a pic of my friend on the toilet:

P.S - I want to add I was glad we could choose our characters, I wanted to be Louis (the black dude) cause he reminded me of Obama. OBAMA APPROVES.

I can't wait to play this! But the demo wouldn't install for me, it just took me back to the same page.

Perhaps you didn't reset Steam :S You did pre-order it right?

Oh wait, I didn't realise it was for pre-orders only. Hehehe.

Heh yeah he seems like a nice guy. I mean I don't judge someone unless I have met them in person :D So I don't get the whole supposed "Red Necks" hating him.

Great game though! The full version came out a while back and I completed it with friends. I plan to record it on YouTube sometime if they can get their arses in check.
