I think it was, it's fixed now. The demo is pretty nice, but I doubt it's anywhere near as fun as being the zombies will be. That's what everyone wants to be.




I bought it for the co-op :) Though the versus will be an added bonus and it'll be a blast with friends.

The game is not about being the zombies, it's about surviving cooperatively, and that's where the fun is.

You don't think it would be fun to play as a zombie for a change? :|



I can't decide whether to get this for the 360 or PC. Argh.

Playing as the zombie take the survival horror out of survival horror. You want to be the zombie, Get Stubbs the Zombie. Valve doesn't want you to get infected on purpose just to be the zombie.

I think I'll have a lot more fun being a zombie than a human. Not that that won't be fun too.

You know, the first time I ran into a witch I was thinking "Hmm, I wonder how scary they are? Everyone seems to think theyre pretty awful." so I be clever and (bearing in mind im playing single player so I dont wind anyone else up) I decide to shoot the crying mess on the floor.

Holy jesus. [bleep] damn [cabbage] [bleep]s.

Why did I do that? Not only did a small house appear under my seat after I had pulled the trigger, she'd also managed to rape my whole team into submission. Seriously.

So I learn. I keep thinking that if I see a witch again, ill just leave her alone. Walk around the side, just so long as I dont startle her. And then;

Very funny, Valve. Veeeery funny.

So, I took the smart option: lobbed a malotov at her and legged it like the limey coward I am.

It didnt work (I hadnt expected it to), but it was great to see my whole team be terrorised by a flaming, screaming banshee.

you need to get the whole team geared up with hunting rifles, point blank on her head, and shoot on the count of ten.. FLAWLESS VICTORY!



well



theoretcially..



most times we attack her, and she kills one person. only to run off and show her cowardice afterwards :mrgreen:

Pah, ive yet to play online since its acting up whenever I try to connect. But the AI arent quite as smart as that, they just decide to shoot her some more and agitate her to come back for a second round where the surprise is that she wins every time.

Ive also found very little use of the hunting rifle, ive only used it once or twice down the subway for the entertaining POP of their heads as they fly off the shoulders they were once so attached to. And it fires too slow to be of much use in the melee where you might as well be fending off these zombies with a wet flannel.

And is it just me or do the AI love jumping in front of you when you begin to fire? So many times ive blown that WarVet's brains over the zombies in front of him and yet he just keeps coming back for more. And they arent too good with dealing with a horde while im on the floor since they seem more engrossed in trying to lift me up so I can be thrown straight back down than dealing with the task at hand.

But pipe bomb + large horde = huge lol.

hunting rifle is kind of worthless, unless you are like cleaning the basement thing after you get through the metros, the one with all the pillars, though when playing online it is way too annoying for your teammates. i'm really looking forward to the full game :D

Witches are pretty easy if handled correctly, I'd much rather see a Witch on expert rather than a Tank. Molotov her and then all 4 concentrate your fire onto her. Aslong as everyone does their job, she should go down. Unfortunetly sometimes she gets startled while you're trying to clear.. The best option then is to say a prayer, then start running and shooting and hoping she goes down. Tanks on the over hand... Gah! Buggers almost always ruin our almost perfect runs on Expert :(

I find tanks pretty easy, as long as you arent complete berks about it and youre not in a disadvantageous surrounding [i.e. closed space] all you need to do is make sure to keep a safe distance and pelt him with anything and everything. He makes mincemeat of anyone who has fallen at his wake, though, so its pretty much an instant death should he down anyone. Witches are just "OH GOD WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS JESUS CHRIST" and highly erratic.

Played it on Expert (hardest difficulty) yet? That's where tanks become a BIG problem if not handled right, and they're damn hard to handle usually, never killed one without losing a man. Witches on the other hand, not so bad usually.

Yep. But of the 3 times I have, ive only ever run into a single tank. So maybe its just the figures dont match up, since ive had less encounters ive therefore had less failures, but I really didnt find him too taxing. Like I said, it really depends on your surroundings when you do bump into one. But ive always found witches to be overly angsty.

Well yea, if you can get them in a good spot they're not too bad, but all depends what your team mates do. We once got him into a train car, 2 people on either side, when he ran at one pair, they ran back while shooting and the other pair chased and shot, when he turned around to chase the other pair, they also ran back and shot. Worked pretty well.



Witches though.. Get some high ground or be ready to run. I don't think they're too bad at all, some times though.. Bad things happen and they kill all of you. Oh and if you ever meet one in the last room in the demo, the minigun/turret will do some serious damage on her very quickly.

She only goes for the person who startled her first, so people say getting team mates to block the witch can work.
