    A Hot Date With Banj At Mercy Hospital

    "I have a dream that tomorrow some of you will join me and rise up to live out the true meaning of this creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men like shooting zombies."

    I have a dream that tomorrow on XBOX Live! the sons of Destructoid and maybe some hot chicks will be able to stock up on ammo at a table of brotherhood.

    I have a dream that our four characters will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the amount of zombies they shot.

    I have a dream today..."


    - Martin Luther King



    Translation: I'm not at work tomorrow (Wednesday) and intend to spend all day playing Left 4 Dead.

    I very rarely get to play with any of you cats due to you all living in the bright centre of the universe and me living on the planet that is farthest from, however, I intend to be starting out about 8am so maybe some of you will be online and eager to peel some zombie caps back?

    My gamertag is Banj if you're not already on my shit list.

    What does 8am translate to in Eastern time? I'm way too tired to figure it out. I'm totally down though, since I have the next for days off work I can sleep whenever.

    I think I'm 8 hours in front of California.

    8am here would be midnight in La-la-land.

    I was planning on coming into work relatively late tomorrow, since I've got to be here until midnight. So I can probably get some zombie killing on with you. I usually get up around seven or eight Pacific, which would be, what, four PM for you?

    Yeah, I'll be then I'm sure.

    I have a few mindless domestic tasks to perform at some point during the day or poon will be removed from the entertainment schedule but I'll make a point of being on at 4 just for you.

    Much as I hate to bring a thread back from the dead, I'm doing this shit again tomorrow if anybody wants in. I'll be on from about 8am GMT.

    I should be there. Have you done much versus yet? Maybe if we get enough Dtoiders on we could do two full teams. Or if not, we could get one team together and destroy idiots who don't work together in random public matches.

    Played a bit of versus last week, it's fuck hard. I liked it but it's a totally different experience to playing co-op. It's a lot more hectic... plus I'm shit at being the specials.


    ...I'm up for either though.

    Versus really only works well when you have eight human players... If one of the survivors is being run by a bot, they'll take you down instantly like the fucking Terminator even if you're a good distance away. I've found targeting the bots first is usually the best bet, since humans are always slower to react to a pinned teammate. It also requires more teamwork & communication than co-op, especially if you're currently the Infected. Get on a decent team and coordinate you attacks though, and you can demolish the survivors. Use a Boomer to get a horde on the survivors, then hit the group with your Smoker and two Hunters simultaneously. If all goes well, the confusion will let you deal a nice amount of damage on all four. One or two more coordinated strikes like that, and they're down. It's even easier if the survivors are being played by retards who don't stick together and watch each other's backs.

    Best strategy I've found with the survivors is to hustle like hell through the level and stay together in a close group. Don't wait around for any longer than is necessary, that only gives the Infected more time to set up a strike. Even if you don't all make it to the safe room, you'll hopefully be able to cover more distance than the other team.

    What a coincidence, I'm working late tomorrow, so I wasn't going to come in until like three. I'm in.

    Mxy, the one thing I get frustrated about in multiplayer are teams of survivors that do THAT. Not that it's not totally legitimate, but it takes a lot of the fun out of playing as an Infected when you only get to spawn like four or five times during a round.

    Was it for poon? If so, totally acceptable. If not, you're a son of a bitch.

    I'd just like to say that I played through No Mercy and Death Toll last morning with Banj. It was an incredible, life changing experience. I swear, at one point, I felt the earth move. Then I realized that a Tank had just thrown a hunk of concrete at my character's head and I should pay attention to the fucking game already and get to the safe room.

    I think this thread is getting a case of the Banj effect.
