If you're like me then you've probably devoted some thought to what you'd do in the first moments of a zombie apocalypse. My friends and I plan on heading up to a cabin -- whose location I am sworn not to disclose -- where we'll hold out with all the guns and food we can muster from our parents. Heading to a military base is also an option for us, but we've all seen how that ends up in the movies...
Still, the common thread that runs through people's zombie apocalypse plans is that the defensible bunker is usually somewhere close to home -- especially if they already live in a remote community. Yet after my recent time with the Swamp Fever and Parish campaigns of Left 4 Dead 2, I'm beginning to wonder if wilderness is any better than the city after all.
The premise for the Swamp campaign is that the survivors head into a bayou in order to find refuge within a community which has refused aid from the military and outside sources. When you first arrive it seems hopeful, like perhaps their isolationist attitude could have held out against the outbreak. However, after a short distance you realize that you're in the f**king swamp -- aka no walls -- and that these people were really just sitting around waiting to get surrounded.
