Looks awesome.  But I'm gonna miss the origional four, especially my beloved Bill.  And Francis hatin' on everything.

It's be nice if they appear somewhere as a cameo in the story, or if you cna find a message by them scrawled on a wall somewhere.

I have to say, my first thoughts were 'Why? Do we need a sequel?' Then I read more about the changes. It's like they're taking everything that lacked in Left 4 Dead and improving it. The last doubt I had in my mind was if I would like the new characters. After watching the alarm panic movie in the OP what few voiceovers I heard seemed to have a more believable quality to them. I dunno, maybe it's just the fact that I live in Texas and I'm around Southerners all the day long. The fiddle-esque music is pretty nifty too.
Yeah, [Kishmond] came back from Africa, but the ponies have him now.

Did you see all those black zombies?

Racist.
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I'm sort of disappointed that they're putting in melee weapons. Well, that and now it's the Italian that's well off. Poor Louis, I shall miss you and your accounting or whatever.

Couldn't these two topics be combined like what we did with Half-Life and Portal?

Youtube was down for a few hours, I took the liberty of uploading all 9 videos there and they're now in the OP.

I hope they'll have a good deal on this game for people who already own L4D 1 :-\

I can't say the characters appeal to me.

The fat black man does, of course.

I want the old characters back :(

Overall it's looking quite nice! But they should add the screamer too ;)

Screamer was replaced by boomer silly. It was taken out for a good reason :P


Anyway, people are all like "Oh noes I miss the original survivors" but there's no indication they won't be coming back. If L4D1 maps are bundled with 2 then it would make sense to make updates that use the original gang as well as the newbies.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

And people are going to mod the original in the second maps anyways.

Because they are everywhere, and everyone.

I know it was replaced by the boomer. But I liked the concept, I've also heard that it confused the playtesters and that it just didn't work.
But they can give it another function, like making you deaf for a short period or something.

DD, where did you get the information that Ellis is Latino.

From one of the videos I'd conclude he's a regular old Southern Hick. As evidenced by this line:

 "Hey, ah found sum guns. Who ain't right in th' head naow?"(sic)
