YAY FOR COOP!

This isn't a valve game, its just made on valves technology. It will be interesting to see what turtle rock can do seeing their portfolio consists of Counter Strike, Counter Strike and more Counter Strike...

You've got to love it when developers use text speak in their game titles.  ::)

Seems to me like it wasn't just for the hell of it, since there will be 4 players cooperating to accomplish the objectives.  Hence the 4.

But yeah, this game could be pretty fun, but I was wondering if the AI "director" could also spawn Infected or just the regular zombies.  The way I read it, it kinda sounded like the Infected were already there, and the incoming players take control of the pre-existing zombies.  But it also left room for debate.

I never played any zombie shooters. The variety is always too small for my taste.  :P With Valve tech it could be really cool.

Sounds alright, but the idea of having the generic zombies as 'runners' doesnt sit well. REAL zombies dont run :3

That pissed me off too. It's bad enough when kids do it; having some "clever" link to the four characters isn't really an excuse.

Sounds fun. If the zombies are fast though, I hope they are very easy to kill, otherwise they would have an advantage in numbers.
