What about it? is L4D free to play? does it have Hostage Rescue and Bomb Diffusion among other PvE stuff? a Crafting system?


l4d2 was free to play. If you bought it when it was free.

so basically for those who don't own l4D2, this will just give forumites another choice of a game to try to play together

Well at least l4d2 has real graphics :3

Nobody wants to play games together anyway. Or at least with me.

I would play games with you. Just has to be something I like or at least can stand without having to go far out of my way to access and play.

Not really the same though. Didn't mojang want it on more platforms so they put it on mobile and Xbox and ps or something?

I'm more scared for the fate of the Modding community. We were supposed to get the entire source code released at some point but I am doubting we will ever get it.

Wow. The article ends by talking about how Microsoft sucked the soul out of Bungie. :( That's not encouraging to say the least.

:( For some reason I think I'm going to go out and finally buy Minecraft on pc.

God why did I even browse those comments. Just more evidence that humans suck and should be destroyed.

Some feminist potato that said games were sexist. Then every male player said "widbchfisjx shut up and die we like our half naked women and jiggle physics" and then stuff.

I'm paraphrasing a bit.

essentially. anita sarkeesian is the woman who does like a series of video essays on sexism in video games, funded by kickstarter. she used to do shorter video essays before that on media in general? i remember seeing one about straw feminists in media, but i think she now focuses on video games.

anyway, in this article, anita sarkeesian was slated to receive some sort of award or recognition from some gaming thing and someone sent in a bomb threat.

Sounds dumb.

I mean, I'm all for jiggle physics if they help sell a game, but there's obviously stuff in video games at times that is blatantly sexist. It's called 'fanservice.' Women are objectified, men are objectified.
There's obviously a double standard, where we can point out that the characters in Dead or Alive, with insanely large breasts and impossibly skinny bodies are portrayed, is sexist, but we cannot point out that the insanely muscled bodies of Kratos from God of War or Pantheon from League of Legends (could easily go on, but those two stand out) because 'that isn't the issue at hand.' And that's fine. Let's campaign for stuff we feel strongly about.

But you know what? I don't really care about any of it. I just wanna play fun games. I don't really care about jiggle physicis and whatnot. They aren't really my cup of tea.

What bothers me is that there are some people who care too much. The crazies and whatnot.
