    immersion?
    it's a zombie killing game that you play with friends who are most likely yelling profanity the whole time. it's not supposed to be immersive. it's supposed to be fun :p

    sluggish animations will depend on your computer power and connection speed.
    L4D sound effects? who cares? it's just a mod.

    Operation Flashpoint was one of my favorite games ever. There was NOTHING like it at the time.

    Then came ArmA which was an evolution on Operation Flashpoint, but a lot of the magic was lost. Probably because it was no longer original and I had grown older and more cynical. Still a great game though.

    I bought ArmA II long ago but I must admit that I kind of quit after a day because I saw nothing new. Same clunky controls, same bugs, same awful fragmented voices "ALL.... MOVE TO TREE.... SIX OCLOCK".

    I kind of wish they would completely rewrite the game engine to make it a more polished and fluid experience. Bring it up to date!

    Hopefully ArmA III addresses some of my complaints. The fact that it has diving and submarines makes my pants wet, no pun.

    To each their own I guess, I am personally not convinced after all the videos I've seen of it.
    I play L4D on a pretty much daily basis, it feels like a downgrade to the core.

    I know this mod is about the fun with friends, but fortunately I also have that in L4D.

    Fully agreed on the "ghetto-rigged" descriptive. I'm dying to try it out again, but I REFUSE to log in only to be told to go scramble around DLing more files to match up with servers, finding fully loaded servers, ..with no players on them... or 1 out of 346873000 files out of sync or misnumbered.

    Not to mention the couple nights I DID get to play were horrifyingly short and brutal. No hope, no ammo, no stealth element to assist in hiding from zombos.. just spawn in to at least 3 looking directly at me... fire off the bare minimum of "save my ass from being eaten" shots and attract 89685746734769790560 more zombos.

    Totally pointless to bother with this until it's out of Beta.. IF it ever gets there.

    Lots of DLC in the past couple of days, but since my last update:


    Dungeon Defenders DLC - Lost Eternia Shards Complete, Series EV Hero, Summoner Hero - finally a sale on Lost Eternia DLC!

    Shoot Many Robots - looks like a real fun co-op shooter

    Stacking - Double Fine... 'nuff said

    Dead Rising 2: Off the Record - holy cow... Capcom finally has it at a reasonable price

    FEAR 3 - I have the first two. This may be the weakest, but the set is complete

    Total War: Shogun 2 - Limited Edition DLC (Hattori Clan) - looked interesting. Ninjas!

    I dunno, FEAR2 is a pretty good contender for "weakest"
    Yea it is screwy that upgrades to health/BTmeter are acquired via level ups versus searching for vials/etc
    I also prefer the feel of the weapons in 3 over 2

    Not so sure about that.

    FEAR 2 actually had some pretty legitimate scares while FEAR 3 is nothing but run and gun. The supermarket wasn't even that frightening to me

    FEAR 3 has some pretty massive muddy textures going on compared to the overall crispness of the last game. The graphics are not really that good. 4x AA is broken causing the game to tank to 30 fps or below while FEAR 2 enjoys a solid 60 at the same setting.

    Honestly if FEAR 3 didn't have coop, it would have been one and done for me.
