I found most of the guys here from the NVnews steam group.

still haven't gotten a group invite boo hoo!


Anyways, myself, Magus, bunny? and some "boss luigi will knife you" guy ripped through the Parrish last night on expert difficulty. The tanks are obscene at that level...

step 2 for me is to hook up a mic as I was sitting there trying to type and play at the same time.. wasn't working out too well.

It was only on Advance difficulty.

Bunny is my GF and Boss is a friend of ours, neither are on nvnews.

Next time stop shooting car alarms.

Yup, Were trying to get use to the game before we go expert. Also we didn't have much time to play and wanted to finish the camp.

BTW, Anyone notice the really crappy LOD system in the game? I notice things pop into view all the time.

It's a limitation of the steam engine as far as I know... fakefactory somewhat addressed this with version 9 of his cinematic mod but said he would wait until EP3 was released to see how much (if any) major updates were done to the engine.

Im not talking about the LOD of far off objects, I mean like things 20' away just fade into view. This never happened in the original L4D, I'll post some examples when I get home from work tonight.

I have that with an HD 4870, but not so bad it's distracting.

Uhh there is about 20 people with the name Grey on Steam. Why do they let people have the same names? It's confusing. I had someone named Grey in my friends list but I guess it wasn't you. How do I know which Grey is you? What does your user pic look like? I tried to look at the NVNews group for you but I guess you aren't a member of it.
This is the first time I've used the friends thing with Steam and it seems a little more complicated than it needs to be with people having the same user names then 2 people sending me invites to the NVNews group and I never get the invites. Also not being able to find someone when typing their name into the add a friend box but then seeing them on the NVNews group then I can click and add them as a friend. WTF?

Unless I'm blind, that looks normal. Granted, I've not played the game yet so if something is missing I probably wouldn't know.

Betterdan- you're on my friends list. I'll invite you to the steam group. Also, check out my profile page, on their you can view all of my friends- you'll see Grey there and should be able to add him to your friend's list.
