Well I've started getting into Left 4 Dead
! It's a game by VALVE
Left 4 Dead is a co-op action horror game for the PC and Xbox 360 that casts players in an epic struggle for survival against swarming zombie hordes and terrifying mutant monsters. Set in the immediate aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, L4D's survival co-op mode lets you blast a path through the infected in four unique movies, guiding your survivors across the rooftops of an abandoned metropolis, through rural ghost towns and pitch-black forests in your quest to escape a devastated Ground Zero crawling with infected enemies.
This game is a heap of fun ;] Online and LAN are great! There is a singleplayer mode which is ok but coop & mp is where it really excels in my opinion. To add to the game there's a bundle of achievements you can go for. Here's a list of them all and the percentage of world players that have them - link
. As you can see, some of these would be quite hard to get (legitimately). I've been slowly working at mine. I've been keeping track of them chronologically - here
I've already had a play around with the dedicated server pack and it ran well. I've only tested it via LAN so far. When my server eventually
gets a dedicated connection again I'll run some test nights where while testing the server I'll organise some achievement goals as well.
Stay tuned ;p
