    Fuck I thought I could choose the new survivors, since I definitely want Rochelle to die. I have lost games because of FUCKING AI ROCHELLE. She is a zombie in sheep's clothing, I swear. She's working against us.

    Haven't had the games long myself (Perils of Summer steam sale $), but I know long-time fans just let out a huge "FINALLY!".

    Been looking forward to this, but why are they adding No Mercy to L4D2? Has to be my least favorite campaign from L4D1.
    (Actually, now that I think about it, it makes a little more sense. L4D2 added in defibs and adrenaline syringes, things you'd see more commonly in a hospital)

    I really think Left 4 Dead 2 could use a city level, since there's definitely a difference in level design between 1 and 2. The first was definitely more city for some areas and suburbs, probably due to its (presumed) location in Pennsylvania. Left 4 Dead 2 on the other hand was more rural and even the "city level" (The Parish) was still not as sprawling as No Mercy's high tops. No Mercy was a decent campaign though outside of all the cheap drops they could do with Smokers. And with Chargers added to it you can say hello to lots of rooftop suicide dives unless they change it up.

    Goddamn, agreed with her being a ninja zombie.

    She's the reason I lose so many games.
    One time during a versus as survivors, a guy dropped out and we were left with Nick, still managed.

    Then another time with Rochelle, we lose before we get even halfway.

    Just... AURGHROCHELLE!!

    No Mercy and playing original survivors in Left 4 Dead 2?

    WANT! WANT SO VERY MUCH!

    Anyways, I wonder if there'll be any huge differences between the L4D and L4D2 versions?

    The token black guy always dies in the movies. General rule of thumb is if there is a black character whose somewhat relevant to the film but still a minor supporting character is that he will die first.

    Is that what this really means? If so, enable them for all the L4D2 campaigns plz.

    If they start releasing all the L4D1 maps in L4D2, I may actually start playing 2 over 1 again. Maybe.

    Well I got the original survivors in L4D2 info from the news post of this on destructoid (which was a little more in depth).

    Here's the destructoid post: http://www.destructoid.com/valve-announces...ad-182039.phtml

    I'm fairly certain it's only for this campaign.

    Away from civilization.
    Zoey would be dead.
    She's a stupid AI when I play, but Louis is just as bad -_-

    I remember I shot Louis until he was incap because the jerk made me lose my achievement on "Do not Disturb". Everyone crouched and ninja'd past the witch, this fucker ran.

    ... or it ends how The Passing begins. 3 people get atop the elevating bridge platform, 1 person goes to restart the generator with no way of getting onto the platform themselves and gets demolished by a tank after doing so.

    Never! Bill is teh awesomest character in the entire L4D Saga [​IMG]

    Well, Louis has that pillz thing, you cannot seriously kill him.
    And Francis hates everything. That makes for golden comedic material. He's also indestructible.

    Well... and there goes Zoey [​IMG]

    Zoey is unique in the fact that she has a vagina though.

    Still, she's annoying and Valve seems to make female AI characters bad for some reason. Or they just love to put the bad players in the shoes of female characters.

    It's a conspiracy.
