Happy Halloween, N-Philers! I've put in some time with the early Left 4 Dead 2 demo for all good little girls and boys who reserve their video games, and I've got a spooktacularly long and tangential gob of impressions for you. Plus, pics from Gareth's run through the demo!
Now, I needed no boner fluffing for the game's Nov. 17th release. I've been on board since it was announced, but playing through the two stages of the Parish scenario has put aside any doubts I had that this game would swallow all my free time in 2010 and beyond. By now, interested parties have had plenty of opportunity to find out what's in the game. As far as how well new ideas are implemented, there's not much reason to worry. In fact, the only reason I think people should even play the demo is because it's fun. There shouldn't be much if any doubt that this is a game that deserves some attention this holiday season.
