PC Gamer has a video podcast featuring Valve's new game Left 4 Dead.

http://www.pcgamerpodcast.com/video/?p=40

The actual game play looks awesome and I plan on buying the game, but I starting to question Valve's decision of incrementally updates to the Source engine vs. a total new engine. HL2 came out three years ago and based on the footage Lead 4 Dead pretty much looks the same. If they keep this strategy I would think in 3 or 4 years the engine will look rather dated compare to newer technology.

On a different note at around 7:40 in the podcast you can hear someone in the background ask a Valve rep if the source engine is "still ATI friendly" but I can't hear the answer because of the background noise. If anybody has better ears I would like to know what the response was.

In 3 or 4 years it will look dated? hmmm today is July 7th...... figuring closer to 2 months and 4 days and it will look ancient.

Um, its not be Valve at all... Its using the Source Engine but the Developers is Turtle Rock Studios.

Turtle Rock are the developers of CS for the Xbox, Condition Zero and Source.

Speaking of Counter-Strike for the original Xbox and Condition Zero. What the hell are the difference between the two games? Is it safe to assume that CS for Xbox is a port of Condition Zero?

Lots of info here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Left_4_Dead

The expected release date is Summer\Q3 2007... I kind of doubt that this will work out though. This podcast is the first I've heard of the game.

Thanks. You know what kind of history Valve has with release dates and actually committing to it.

Or Zombie movies in general (of which, 28 days/weeks later has no zombies, so I pray they wouldn't be copying a crap source that has nothing to do with the game).

You referring to the ****y 2004 Dawn of the Dead remake? I'm sorry but trash doesn't deserve the Dawn of the Dead name.
