    The story being non-existent? Implying there was a solid story in L4D1?
    When did I imply there was a solid story in L4D1? This is part of the problem I'm talking about. No story, no intricate gameplay, maximum repetition.

    It's really more about the versus aspect, the competitive nature that drives the enjoyment for me. L4D2 is still my favorite Valve game
    A game should never resort using the human element as an excuse for the story being non-existant and having overly simple super-repetitive gameplay in every level. L4D [and L4D2 were] stand-alone full-price games, not versus-only-oriented $20 Orange Box components.
    Also some people bought into the series based on the developer saying it was fundementally a co-op "survivor-experience".

    Well verifying the game cache didn't do shit. In fact, it made it worse. At lease before I could play the game, now it just crashes on launch.

    Like two weeks ago. It's fine though. I completely reinstalled the game and now it's all good.

    Weird shit happens in 16 player servers.

    How do I M60


    I got blinded by being raised from incap. Funny thing is, I managed to reach the safe room all the way from the tunnels by following the auras nevertheless.


    Louis is tired of life or accidentally took Depressants instead of Ibuprofen

    Man, I forgot this dude existed. He did Super Smash Bros. machinima for awhile, and all of the sudden he does a L4D one.

    Okay, for those who don't like this kind of stuff, there's pairings involved here. This is your warning.

    Pointless and useless bump, but would anyone be game for trying to find or recreate the L4D1 beta sounds? Become a lot more interested in them for some reason. I realise most of the sounds can be directly ripped from CS:S but some of them seem to be edited or completely different.

    Reference:

    EDIT: I mean weapon sounds, sorry for the crap elaboration.

    There are some sounds that leave trails from the Beta, they are just unused or cut out because they didn't seem either of the following: Realistic, logical, well-recorded etc.

    It just came to my mind that Zoey's arrive$rescuevehicle lines and radioused$rescuevehicle still have her old voice actor, it was when I playbacked them in Audacity and heard them in-game


    I wish they never took out the I Hear a TANK lines, I would even want the following:

    Reaction Apprehensive
    Answer Lost Call
    Emphatic No
    Francis's Generic56 & 61 because they seem related to Friendly Fire and Dead Center (just met up with each other)
    Grief$gendergeneric (where $gender is the gender of the Survivor, Female would be for Zoey & Rochelle while Male is.. basically for the six male Survivors. OR they could be for seeing a dead person the Survivors might know or recognize) for mourning a Survivor without knowing their name, but, no wait, Source CANNOT detect the gender of a model by itself! It needs the global_actors.txt to explain everything!
    Swear Coup de Grace for killing a Special/Player Infected who recently or just killed a Survivor just before you deplete his/her health
    Team Kill on Purpose for trolls or extreme griefers (Did you know that the old L4D1 intros had Francis's teamkillonpurpose05 still used? It's listed in the Closed Captions)
    Uncertain, which could be for when hearing a Special Infected and not recognizing/knowing them
    Vocalfidgets? They're in the closed captions but I don't know what they sound like, should we ask Valve to give us the cut lines?
    Sawsomething, such as seeing something in the dark with the "Look!" command without the flashlight or seeing an SI/PZ (Special Infected/Player Zombie) when not familiar
    ZombieGeneric$Length (where $length is the length of the dialogue, short or long. Could have been used for the Elevator chatting in No Mercy or something?)
    SelfUseHealth for Zoey only, in case you'd want to play as her in Last Man on Earth (Mutation1). NOTE: Zoey said she was not interested in Francis's improvement if Francis was The Last Man on Earth in the Beta Intro!

    And then there's the removed lines for the NPCs, from SmallTown (Death Toll) to Farm (Blood Harvest). You guys should know that Crash Course seems to have some very small things restored from the L4D Beta, why can't they just put in everything mentioned in the subtitle files?

    Content is content. Whether or not it's good or bad is an opinion of the content. Granted, most people might agree on an opinion, but there are still others who like the content and regardless will post it.
