Gib Fest – M60 Madness on L4D2

August 8th, 2010

I wonder what friendly fire would do in Expert mode D:

Weapon spam comes back this week, now with The Passing’s new weapon, the M60. With unlimited ammo and no reload, this is the ultimate zombie sweeper for all ranges, even better with laser sights and frag rounds.

Just a couple of tips, don’t try to take down a witch from a distance by yourself (unless you have frag rounds) and also make sure to quit the match before you reach the finale on Dark Carnival, cause this mutation has a bug that hangs the game when loading that specific map.

L4D2 – Room for One

June 13th, 2010

dash!

This new mutation brings, for the first time, what no other L4D game mode has brought before: the encouragement to backstab your teammates at the last moment. :D As cruel as it sounds, it’s actually a lot of fun… as long as you’re the one to get to the rescue vehicle first. ;D

L4D2 Mutations

Follow the liter


Just like the series of the season, I keep waiting every thursday for a new Left 4 Dead 2 Mutation. For those who have no idea what a Mutation is (esco), it’s the latest game feature that came with the DLC. In this slot, a new type of game with its own set of rules is introduced by the Valve team every thursday.

The row started with Realism Versus, which is self explanatory if you’ve played both Versus and Realism mode; followed by Bleed Out where you never get a full health but keep on going just by popping pills (Louis’ dream). But this week’s one has become my favorite in record time: Follow the Liter, a modified Scavenge mode where you get one set of cans to pick up at a time, so the infected can tell exactly where the survivors are aiming to go at a time. Awesome mode that pushes teamwork to the limit for both teams.

Star Trek wins an Oscar for makeup

After 30 years of nominations, the Academy finally acknowledges a Star Trek movie with an actual Oscar. Too bad neither Roddenberry lived to see this day.

The Nameless Decade that was

January 1st, 2010

The 10s begin

Happy new year 2010, and happy new decade. I wonder if the previous decade will ever get “officially” named. For now, I rather stick with “the ohs”, even though that only works in english. I hope the media does end up calling it something, because for better or worse, it was a meaningful decade. At least the naming gets easier from this point on.

L4D2 Curiosities

October 30th, 2009

Thought of posting these 2 things I noticed while playing the demo:

Did you notice how you can now grab a fresh gun as soon as you shoot a bullet off the one you’re holding? No need to do a previous reload. That would make an infinite almost uninterrupted firing rate when you camp next to a weapon table (I predict it will be patched T_T).

Also a funny consistency glitch. You can now have a melee weapon instead of a sidearm, right? But did you notice how when you carry a machete/nightstick/guitar/etc and you get knocked down, you magically get a sidearm to defend yourself until someone helps you up, then you get your melee weapon back?

RIP GooSync

October 8th, 2009

At least as a free service. GooSync is killing the free version of their service, which was decent, since I could at least sync the next 30 days of my google calendar account. I guess too many people found the free version appropriate, or didn’t think the paid version was even worth it, so they resorted to this. Now to look for another way of keeping my Nokia and Google up to date.
