However, Turtle Rock stressed that the game is not — at least in an official capacity — Left 4 Dead 3.

Back 4 Blood is our own brand new, original IP,” the studio said. “You’ll be able to shoot up a lot of zombies like in Left 4 Dead, but there’s a whole lot of new stuff in Back 4 Blood which makes it unique.”
The studio that developed the original Left 4 Dead is developing what sounds like a spiritual...

Are the issues I had with origins prevalent in Odyssey?

OK, so finally got through origins last week. Took an epic 70 hours spanning many weeks. I actually really liked most of it. So I have odyssey and am debating whether to launch into that as my new single player game. It's been well received so I'm just wondering if the specific issues I had with origins are the same worse or improved.

1. The map: Weird complaint, but I found it lacking to say, Syndicate. I found the colour scheme awful and the colour...

Games you got turned and burned on?

You know the deal – the internet puts you onto a game that is absolutely hailed as the next ‘Citizen Kane’ of gaming. A game that’s new to your radar, you read impressions and they’re all overwhelmingly positive and describe things that sound awesome. …

You know the deal - the internet puts you onto a game that is absolutely hailed as the next 'Citizen Kane' of gaming. A game that's new to your radar, you read impressions and they're all overwhelmingly positive and describe things that sound awesome. You eventually take the risk and buy it and then it's just a complete disappointment to the hype and what you was expecting.......

Right now, that game is 'SOMA' for me. It's not bad and I got in while in the PSN offer so I don't feel too...

The A.I. of Horizon: Zero Dawn (AI and Games)

OK, so I'm no veteran of the turn based JRPG and honestly not that much of a fan of turn based combat in general. However, I read and watched enough and decided to download the demo.

Do you know what? I actually don't mind it. The aesthetic is nice enough, the story is solid enough so far and even the combat isn't as bad as I was expecting. The only thing that is annoying is the fights seem like interruptions. I think in 90 minutes of play, I've probably traversed five screens but bang out...

Hey GAF, first time I've ran a time-spanning voting comp. Really, it was a dry run for the Gen 8 poll. So do feel free to feedback as well. My own thoughts are:

- People saying 'x' game was missing. The criteria was it had to place in the top 20 for the previous years. If it couldn't force itself into top 20 in a particular year then it had to be cut. The results are meant to be face offs between the absolute cream of last generation. For Gen 8, I...

I remember spending enormous amounts of time in CS and then GOW2 Horde and L4D. I remember feeling something different when you were on a shared team against AI enemies. Players seemed to play in tighter groups and be more co-operative and altruistic in their approach. And sure on teams like CS, Battlefield etc. you are on a 'team' as such but even in squads it's rare you have the same sort of focus as a unit. Raids in Destiny 2 were fun for me personally as well. I think there's just more...
