    Left 4 Dead 3 when?

    • ffboi7

      Valve doesn’t know how to count to three :/

  • Charmchar

    I wonder if this game is going to even matter outside of Japan, in the sense of its story. Will it continue the story, will it just be its stand alone story, or will it just forgo the story for just shooting random zombies in existing maps with old characters like Bill or Louis…hmm…So many questions that need answers!

    • DyLaN

      I hope its a stand alone story tht takes place in Japan since I doubt arcade gaming is still alive in the west, but that just me. Don’t mind them cameos though.

      *joins the so many questions train*

      • Charmchar

        Maybe the characters in this game will have cameos in Left 4 Dead 3 or at the very leased mentioned in some way. That would be a treat to see.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Bill is dead

      • Charmchar

        I’m aware of that, I’m just saying they could place the story before his passing or if they forgo the story; they’ll just add him as playable character.

    Nowadays… Valve seems out of touch with their consumers. Just like the old political parties with their people…

      True, funny and at the same time sad. Other company’s started to get more invested in computer online cloud stores and making great progress in their own way, Steam refuses to change with the times. Not to mention steam’s customer service is really bad (From what I hear)

      First it was GOG. Great site all around. I have no issues with them. Though they certainly got even more involved when they started putting new games up as well as old ones. What is Valve doing to counter them? Adding old games as well, but putting them up in new game section and started to add really REALLY crappy games up and just flooding the whole store. There is no quality control, and all the great games that deserve the top spot (Which helps sales; because trying to find games in Steam is already hard) are losing much more because they don’t get the spot light’ as much.

      Then Origin came around. Granted, I don’t have much to say about the store. But there is something I can say for 100% CERTAIN. Origin is amazing at returns. You can return a game after buying it after finding out that it doesn’t work. Steam does not do this. Steam’s return policy is so old that the only thing they changed recently is that you can return a pre-order and that’s it.

      To be honest, I think Valve is a bit hubris after being “the one” after so long. They are so jaded that the gaming community is starting to see them as such.

    • DyLaN

      I doubt Valve is developing the game themselves though.

      Or maybe Valve just want to take a go at Japanese arcade market since arcade gaming is still alive in Asia region.

  • Raine

    Just skip the 3 and bring us the 4 Valve.

    I know you can’t count so just slap “Forever” or something.

  • DyLaN

    I’m interested in what form the L4D arcade game will take. Consider me hyped. I don’t mind it being a shooter game since I am terrible at FPS but I can play shooter game well.

  • MXC

    Lol call me racist but all the zombie actors look american or at least from the western hemisphere. And wasn’t the ending with the zombie playing at the arcade a jab at something?

  • fairysun

    That’s was a sick advertisement.
    If I see people dressing like zombies in broad daylight or elevator, I will grab the heaviest object near me and start hitting them on the head. I watch too many zombie movies and play too many zombies-themed video games to consider that kind of prank is funny.
    If you want to act and dress like zombies, do it on halloween, gaming/anime convention, or other similar events.

  • Phantasos

    Gotta love the skepticism of the comments. You people probably think that Valve releasing Counter Strike Online in China was also something that showed Valve was “out of touch with their costumers” when terrorists and counter-terrorists came in sexy Chinese lady form. Meanwhile it’s the second Valve game that’s in the top 10 most profitable online games of the last year. The other being Team Fortress 2, of course.

    This is exactly the same thing. Valve tapping into a foreign market in a way that makes sense for it. This is for Japan and Japan only. And only shows how versatile and dynamic Valve is when it comes to tackling countries with a different gaming culture with their IPs.

    That said, I’m curious to see the juggernaut of an arcade that will have 4 guys playing at the same time.

    Fake advertising, real L4D zombies would be running at 100 km/h and performing parkour.

  • Andrés Ortiz Ozeta

    As a L4D fan, i am quite intrigued on how well this game will fare out in the market, in the general opinion’s eye and to the L4D fanbase… I’ll be expecting more of this

  • Anthony Birken

    As a person loving all things L4D, I’d love to get the chance to play it.

    Trailer = invasion of the Americans~
