Maybe I need to start getting more hours at work. Haha. PSYCHE.
I played L4D2 on the PC again today, trying to get through Dark Carnival. MY FAVORITE CAMPAIGN. <3 Since I'm a wuss and I'm afraid to play on Steam, I just went ahead and started up a single-player campaign with the EVER SO AWESOME AI. Ugh. I guess I could try and play on Steam, but I don't want to give my husband's account a bad rep or anything like that. ^_^;; Oh, and thanks to everyone's tips and such, I now have an Xbox 360 controller plugged into the PC that works like a charm. :3
I breezed through the first 2 levels, no problem. Witches, Tanks, horde, piece of cake. The third level with the rollercoaster was a little tricky, though. Mostly because of the fabulous AI. I was cruising along on the rollercoaster, and halfway through a Hunter pounces me. As sexy as it is to have a Hunter on Ellis, I got incapped. D: STUPID AI NOT SAVING ME FAST ENOUGH. Somehow by this point, I was in black and white, and I was smacking Nick around trying to get him to heal me. HEAL YOUR MAN, DAMN IT. Finally he did, and I kept on going on my merry way. I get through the tunnel and I'm about to go down the hill to where you turn off the rollercoaster when Mr. Smoker grabs me. And drags me off the tracks. D: The AI finally saved me, but I had to get back ON the tracks and go around and through the tunnel AGAIN. By now I was in yellow and going a little slower. Ugh. One thing that made me laugh when I was going through the tunnel was that Ellis said "Chicka-chicka-chicka-chicka" like making little train noises as he was on the tracks. IT WAS SO FUCKING CUTE. I was grinning like a madwoman. :D Eventually I get to the booth to turn off the ride without getting raped too badly by infected. Somehow one of the AI found a medkit and healed me, and we made our merry way to the safe room.
The fourth level. FUCKING A. I hate the Barns sometimes, I really do. Just for that crescendo at the end. D: URGGH. I went through it about 3 times, epically failing at the end for some stupid reason or another. One of the times I was pounced by a Hunter and the AI didn't do shit about it. Or I'd just get swarmed and run out of ammo or some shit. I think one of the times the AI got boomed and couldn't see me, so I was left there to die. URGH. Finally, on the fourth time, I managed to get through and I was like, "All right! Safe room's ahead, I FINALLY fucking did it." Until I see the FUCKING TANK IN THE SAFE ROOM. WTF? WHAT THE FUCK? FUCK YOU AI DIRECTOR, FUCK YOU. Needless to say, it didn't end well. I got incapped by Mr. Tank, and I was hoping that the AI would take it out so that I could get pulled back up and everything would be unicorns and rainbows. Nope, the Tank decides to take his 'roid rage out on me and kill me. D: So then I ragequit. XD *sigh* I really need to play with actual human people on the PC I think.
I've been playing 1 vs. 100 on XBox Live a lot, and I went to the web page to look at what kind of trivia they were having tonight. (Nothing special, unfortunately.) They have a "Host Bios" page, so out of curiosity I clicked on it. Just to learn more about that douche Chris Cashman I suppose. XD Turns out that the blonde-haired host whore, her voice is done by the same chick who voices Zoey in L4D and Cortana from Halo. Her name's Jen Taylor. Interesting. :3
