Not even a flame retardant suit will save you after making that completely unintelligent post.

Thanks for posting this Marin, I love the screenies. Hopefully this is what it will look like and not the below average looking videos we've been seeing. The source engine is great and I don't see why they wouldn't push it to it's full potential.

One thing about zombie games or movies I never understood is why do the zombies always go after people not effected by the virus? I mean why not eat each other or themselves first?

Good question. I really don't know. Maybe the virus makes the zombie attracted to clean blood?

coz, well....dude you're ruining the fantasy!

my guess is it is to do with the blood. although in the case of Left4Dead, they are not 'undead' zombies, they are infected humans. like 28 Days Later, they were referred to as the infected. maybe they have a more capable thought process that traditional zombies.

i guess they can just tell who was infected by smell or something, and either not worry about attacking them, or recognise them as potential allies.

While reading his review I felt as though I was reading one of the Demonata books by Darren Shan. And I loved that feeling! If this game is really as immersing as he makes it out to be I will be a very happy gamer! (Not to mention a very scared gamer as well! Doom 3 still scares the **** out of me to the point where I have to stop playing altogether!)

hahahah. i got that a few times with Doom 3. you gotta stop playing and take a break, its so intense and freaky it takes it out of you. one of the first games where i actually feared for my (virtual) life. you look into a room and you're thinking... **** that im not going in there.
