Overwatch 2 - Everything You Need To Know
Post by trog @ 11:27am 20/04/10 | 14 Comments
The official Left 4 Dead 2 blog is carrying word of the new achievements that are soon to land when "The Passing" DLC lands later this week. There's also an intriguing hint about some cool new stuff, but more details are still forthcoming:
And of course, we saved the best for last: the "Mutant Overlord" achievement, which you can only get by playing six Mutations.

Right about now you might be asking yourself, "What in the hell is a Mutation?" "Why do I have to play six of them?" "Are there more than six?" "Where's that smell coming from?" All good questions. Look for most of the answers in our Wednesday blog post.
As always, more information about this title is on our Left 4 Dead 2 game page.

All of this achievement bulls*** is what made me stop playing TF2 and L4D, games I was playing heavily. When people refuse to play a normal team game, and instead try to grind their "Get X kills using Y without doing Z" achievement without giving a s*** that you're standing there DYING and need a f*****g heal ... that's when the fun stopped for me.

pretty much why I stopped playing games entirely when Battlefield 2 came out with its ranking system and awards. The absolute best thing about playing games for me was the competition against other people. Now too often it's a bunch of people playing against themselves to get stupid awards.

Didn't really have that prob as much in L4D because I only ever bothered playing if it was with mates, but playing on pubs etc ... zzz

Yeh, achievements should align to stuff you'd do to excel while pursuing normal game objectives.

Despite owning it, I could never get into TF2 because every time I started it up it was in the middle of some hat / class event and the game was all weird.

l4d isnt too bad with the achievements. you can get all of them just buy playing the game normally. however, some tf2 achievements take some coordinating.

Yeah they really dropped the ball I reckon keeping L4D1/2 interesting, I haven't played this year either.

To be honest I don't think Valve dropped the ball that much w.r.t. L4D2... the main killer was the way the game has to be played.

In other games, you don't rely on having a team full of non-nubs as much as you do in L4D. In other games a single awesome player can prop up / even out teams. In other games the team sizes are much larger.. but in L4D you're very much reliant on everyone having a clue, and the team size is so small that one dud player pretty much wrecks the game.

For this reason, joining a pub server will usually result in one or the other team getting creamed. It's not impossible, but fairly uncommon to find two teams that are pretty evenly matched.

In summary, I think L4D is a victim of it's own creation of small, very close-knit teams.

Oh, and I'd argue that any game that has players that have played 300 hours worth hit its mark... even more so if they got 600 hours :)

^ Pretty much.

Awesome fun when you hit the sweet spot but you don't hit it very often. Notched about 220 hours and I wont bother trying out this new campaign cause I am over it. Same thing happened with l4d1 when they finally put out versus modes for the 2 other campaigns. cbf'd.

I think the whole atmosphere was ruined by putting the game into daylight, totally ruined hunters and the lame jockey just makes me rage when I get it so I don't play it anymore apart from the odd campaign with mates. Unless w/e this DLC pack is is free I wont be playing.
