Good morning my loyal Painkillers, retro gamers, and newbies to the site. Welcome to another edition of Grab A Buddy Monday. Since it’s October, I wanted to give you a cool retro multiplayer horror game for you guys to enjoy. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of older games that fit what I was looking for to write about for this series. I did find a game from 2008, but I’m sure that many of you have played this game before. If not, what the fuck is wrong with you? Anyway, time to grab three of your buddies, hook up a couple of XBox 360s, to a couple of Tvs, and let’s play Left For Dead.
After a flu outbreak in Pennsylvania turns people into mindless zombies, four survivors that were immune to the flu, band together to get the hell out of this madness. You get to play as one of the four playable characters. Green Beret, and Vietnam veteran William “Bill” Overbeck. An outlaw biker named Francis. An account manager name Louis, and a college student named Zoey. Doesn’t sound like a group of people that would go to a dinner party together, but when you are trying to survive, you take what you can get to help you out.
This game is loads of fun, especially when you are playing with the right people. This is a game where you need to rely on the other players to get through it. Because of this, I would suggest to try to find three others to play with, because let’s face it, AI can be dumb as hell! If you can’t find this game, try to find any game from the Left For Dead series, and have fun! Until next time everyone.
