  1. Was ready to double-dip, but £11.99 is a little bit too much. Will certainly rebuy at the first sub-£10 price. Looking forward to the next announcements though. Psychonauts 2 would be insta-buy!
  2. Well, no takers in my Trading thread for this last week so...who wants my spare Steam copy of Portal 2 for £23.99? [EDIT (04/04/2011) - It's gone!]
  3. Woohoo, full 100%! Now to get that aggregate level time down. Eventually I'll get the PC version and go for those achievements...
  4. Woooooooooooooooooooooo! Okay, I got the Achievement a bit early because of the glitch, but just got six more levels til true 100%. WHICH WILL HAPPEN EVEN IF IT KILLS ME.
  5. The latest meta-challenge I've set myself is perfecting all 10 remixes consecutively. I've come so, so close...
  6. Well I forgot that 360 updates go up before Valve Time kicks in, so I'll probably be on this mid-afternoon ish, after some decorating is done.
  7. Should be on, on Thursday....mostly on PC, but possibly 360 later on.
  8. Might be on, might be out. Dunno! The Passing is out next week, so it would be nice to resume things tonight somewhat. If not, next week! (which I can't make because I'll be in England )
  9. Was in against the Giant Bomb people for a couple of games. Didn't get to do much, which is just as well as I'm rubbish these days, but I was on the winning team each time As of 09:04....still online! [EDIT - Make that three times - got to do in Drew! (although he got me back!)]
  10. Giant Bomb's second, DOUBLED-UP Endurance Run of Deadly Premonition has started! http://www.giantbomb.com/endurance-run-dea...-vj-01/17-2281/ (Vinny and Jeff) http://www.giantbomb.com/endurance-run-dea...-br-01/17-2280/ (Ryan and Brad) Separate playthroughs, same game!
  11. Will put my name down, but might have to pull out as I could be going out to watch the baseball. 1. nathan 2. Michael J Glocks 3. giant_frying_pan 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
  12. Won't be able to play tonight, sorry! Maybe next week, unless everyone's busy eating Easter eggs
  13. MORE new info! And a sale! But hold on, 'cause we ain't done! Coming out this Spring for Left 4 Dead 2 is the brand new DLC "The Passing", which contains: A Wicked Witch Bride! A Gargantuan M60! A Slashing Golf Club! And Introducing The Fallen Survivor! Meet 3 Left 4 Dead 1 Survivors! New Game Modes! Was that a typo? Game Modes? Didn't we mean Game MODE? Did we mean to include that "S"?!?!? YES WE DID! http://www.l4d.com/blog/post.php?id=3634 * * * New modes plural! Awesome. £14.99 on Steam until Thursday and four packs are £44.99 (£11.24 each). gameplay, GameStation and Amazon still have boxed copies for PC for £14.99 as well.
  14. No worries, Vert. There's always next week! The Charger's definitely the hardest to get to grips with, with maybe the Jockey close behind. It doesn't help that the Charger is, in a way, broken as it is. They've updated it on PC so that close proximity charges work as you intend a lot more. Until they eventually roll those changes out on 360, it's best to charge when the humans are all grouped together so getting at least one is more likely, or when they're travelling down a tight passageway. I think you were doing fine! On levels three and four you were markedly improved already at that point, as both Survivor and Infected. On the finale, it's probably my fault that I didn't explain the structure of the level better. It's a lot easier to get left behind in that since you have to keep moving. In all honestly, having a survivor or two lag behind does genuinely help those ahead since the infected then have to spawn in the vicinity of the trailing players (or at least their 'ghost' state starts there and they need to catch up to the leaders without pressing X to warp!). Your general play and awareness were fine for a first-timer, it's only the layouts of the maps that caused you the most problems. Most people playing versus will have solid awareness of the direction they need to go. You're like me in that you wanted to explore every nook and cranny of every map and it was just bad luck that most of the time you took the worst turn possible! Versus is at its best when your whole team, either survivors or infected, all 'click' at once and pull off a great attack or defence against a horde and special infected. We had loads of those moments in the second half of the game, I think! * * * Seems like the DLC is still set for release this month. But it is Valve, after all. I would guess that the consolidated update would be included alongside that on 360.
  15. Don't think it affected any of us. Sorry for not kicking that random guy on our team, he wasn't a total idiot so I would have felt a bit bad about that. Plus, I think it would have put you on the other team anyway. We ended up winning the match We were pulling off some cracking attacks in map 4 and 5. I managed to slip through and run the bridge right to the end! It's tricky to get 8 together on 360 but maybe the bot patch/DLC will rally everyone again. Good games tonight all, especially our flawless scavenge victory, Glocks! 100% win record for me once again

  18. Just had a title update. Wonder what that did. Maybe enabled matchmaking...
  19. Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening on this thanks to my early code courtesy of the Rare CM So, so, smooth but it doesn't take anything away from the classic GE / PD 'feel' or gameplay. Wacky bot and remote mine combinations don't chug ridiculously either, although I suppose that was a little bit of the charm
  20. Yeah done for the night. Next week if I can play at 7/8, I'll see if I can stay on for further games afterwards. I had a 100% win record tonight
  21. Always up for games. 'Circumstances' dictated that I couldn't sutain the organising for as long as I wanted to. There were a lot more games going on on PC rather than 360.
