JC Gaming Corner #1: Left4Dead2

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey »

Would any (well, three) of you guys like to sync up for a game of Left4Dead2 in co-op multiplayer mode? It's currently $9.99 through Steam and should run well on all our PCs.

My thought is that 4 of us set a time, we cap it at most at 2 hours of playtime and run through the game. Those of you that stream, go for it. Anyone interested?

Thanks for sending me a copy for my birthday. I don't know what it is but the older I get, the more these games give me an instant headache. I watched about two minutes of gameplay on YouTube before having to turn it off. I appreciate it regardless.

We got one streamer who will be available to bail us out of jail if collectively we switch to swatting!

Hadsys rc17s was only for 93 EX SE accords, so I'm not sure if it'll fit in my 92 LX.The best I came up with was this: https://lousyspammers.com/. It was a loittle more than I wanted to spend, but the car looks much better overall.

A] true
B] ...unless it's the 1st level of No Mercy in which case ABSOLUTELY Leave Everyone 4 Dead because everyone needs to experience that once.
C] [tdarcos]actually what you do is traverse the map. You only kill zombies if you HAVE to. Killing too many zombies will cost you the game![/tdarcos]

Sounds wonderful, Jonsey. Really, at the current, low-low asking price of $1.99, how could you go wrong? It's positively Cheapo-Beepo.

I'm curious, is it that the player who commits that crime uses IP location techniques and is able to get their address through on-line lookup services, or is it that the person makes the mistake of giving out their personal information, like home address and telephone number, to random strangers on the Internet that they don't even know?

WRT me, if anyone remembers, when I was living in University Park I never exposed my street address either here or on Caltrops. Plus, I never played on-line co-op or competitively. As for now in my case, first I'm in a secured building, second, if cops showed up the front desk would point out that none of the residents could have weapons sufficient to commit an attack on others of the kind requiring a paramilitary response team. There is no way someone of my physical incapacity could even use a rifle, let alone get it in the building. Third, everyone here has known each other in excess of eight years, presumably we're all friends here, and you don't do that sort of thing to people you care about.

I think that sort of thing is on the level of people who do things without realizing the consequences. Like a vindictive woman in divorce proceedings who claim her soon-to-be ex-husband sexually molested their daughter, then discovers to her shock and horror that Child Protective Services (by whatever name it's called) has no choice, and must investigate, by having the child forcefully restrained, sedated, and subjected to vaginal and rectal examinations to determine the validity of her claims, and once she has made them, and discovers the horror she is about to subject her daughter to, even if she recants, the law doesn't allow them to stop the procedure.

Young people who do that think it's funny, until they discover someone is injured or even killed because of over-aggressive police response. "It's all fun and games until someone loses an eye." Or in this case, Left4Dead, 4Real.

Shit, I think I've been lurking here since at least 1999. Kinda sad I never joined Straw on one of your in person Rochester game parties (think I'm right you all brought over computers and hooked them together and played games, sounds fun now).
