|Gaming Corner: Left 4 Dead, Madden '09
Lately i’ve been playing alot of Left 4 Dead which I picked up a couple weeks ago…This game is a BLAST, as long as you’re playing with friends or people that actually know and understand how to play this game….Basically, stick together as a team and you will succeed at reaching each safe room along the level, but go off and deviate on your own and you’re more than likely going to be dragged off by a Smoker or pinned by a Hunter and be “Left 4 Dead” because you’re teammates are halfway across the map and dealing with zombies of their own. New DLC is coming down the pipeline and that should keep people coming back for Zombie breakfast, lunch and dinner for awhile.
I also finally picked up a copy of Madden 09..I own Madden 08, but i couldnt pass ‘09 up any longer after it went on sell at Target for $40. Now I’m a Madden nut, as i practically play Madden (mostly Franchise mode) year round..I have to say, some of the features they added in this game were worth the price of admission, but frustratingly some of the things they had right in last year’s version they changed and made worse in my opinion…The Madden 09 passing system basically makes it impossible to throw the deep ball unless you just tap the button and let go of a hanging air ball…While the new My Skill feature is a nice addition, it basically needs a bit of tweaking and to take more variables than game stats in mind when adjusting your skill level…Say you’re a great RB like Frank Gore and you rack up 200 yards rushing versus the Lions. This should not increase your Rushing offense difficulty as much as, say rushing for as many yards against a stout Run Defense like Minnesota. Hopefully they take a few more variables in mind and tweak this feature to perfection for next year’s version.
