8 way Left 4 Dead Snail Versus Game

Post by chippy » 03 Dec 2008, 14:00

Say when you are free to do this please. Come on, let's make it happen.

I can pretty much do it any time I'm not at work, I have very little life at the moment.

Not this weekend, but pretty much any work night I'll be well up for this. Next weekend I'll prolly be free, but that's a long way in advance for me to be thinking...

I look forward to smacking some snailers down with my pimpin' 25 pounce damage.

Work nights are the best time for me, but weekends I'm generally busy, although Sunday nights would also be a good time.

Also, would anyone want to have a run through at one of the campaigns on expert? From reports elsewhere, unless you're twitchcore then it's gonna potentially take up to 5 hours (if we even finish it). The fun levels due to shitting yourself at even a small horde sounds worth it if anyone has an entirely free evening?

I'm well up for doing some expert campy. I've been a bit wary of doing it with people I don't know in case I'm totally awful and people get cross at me :(

I got sodding incapped ON THE BOAT on Death Toll last night and it didn't count :(

As usual, have zero life currently so will be free any time I'm not at work for the forseeable future.

edit: If we do it on any weeknight other than a Friday we need to start early. I get up half 6 every morning. I feel like shit if I go to bed any later than twelve. Also there's a cooldown period after doing a finale before I can sleep. So yeah, well early start unless it's Friday or weekend.


I dreamt about boomers last night.

You're looking at 1-3 hours depending on campaign with a good strong team that works very well together and communicates constantly.

Well turn good strong into average middling and communicates constantly into screams/giggles constantly then it's probably gonna take me a while longer :pigeons:

I'm guessing you've rinsed expert with the goons yes?

I got done on the plane on Dead Air, and was halfway through being revived as well, bullshit!

Unfortunately right now I can't plan more than a few hours in advance really. I definitely will not be available until Sunday afternoon and even then is in question due to my work scheduling being rather weird.
I do not have anything funny to say for my signature. So have this instead.

Exactly that really. Quite a good fun little platformer. Much better controls than you usually get with a 3D platform as you can control it FP style with a mouse and keyboard. I've read reviews saying it plays better with a pad but I tried it with my 360 and preferred the mouse option. It's the toss up between only having 8-way control using WASD, but nice fine grained camera control with the mouse (rotating the camera also change which way is "forward" also changes which way is "forward" so can essentially steer with the mouse). Or with the pad, you get nice analogue 360 degree control of the water drop, but camera control is done with a stick too, which is the gay in my book. Turns too quickly. X (yes, X) axis appears to be flipped compared to how I'd expect it to work, and neither of those things are configurable. Reasonably challenging and the physics interactions are pretty nicely modelled. Most of the levels are pretty open plan and with multiple possible solutions for the puzzles. For the price of a couple of pints it's good to have as a little chillout game in between blasting zombies and things.

The only real gripe I have with it is it keeps causing a BSOD relating to my graphics drivers. I think it's the game rather than the drivers though as there have been a lot of reports of it being buggy. I'm on 178.24 at the moment, I would move up to 180 series but apparently they causes stuttering problems in Left 4 Dead on 8800s, so I've been holding off until that gets fixed.

So, I have a hazy memory that some people including myself decided that we would be playing this evening? Does this have any foundation in reality; and if it did, does it still?
