Just finished the game last night with the same 3 friends. I would easy give it a 9 too. Probably the best co-op experience of the year.

I'm becoming increasingly convinced that Valve are starting to bribe reviewers to say this.

Played the demo... will most certainly get the game.... though found the demo a little stuttery on a e6600, 4GB Ram and an 8800GTX, I hope the game doesn't suffer from the same annoying stutters, espacially when you're about to pop a boomer

I'd be pleased to hear what you think is better and offers the same breadth of titles with the same portability? EA Store? Heh.

i'm on 1GB mem, 7900gtx and core duo 2ghz on laptop and playing smooooth at 1920*1200 on med settings. Has any game ever got a 10 at Bit-tech?

yea!

Steam was really really pants a couple of years ago, but they've sorted it out fantastically and compared to every other alternative it's head and shoulders above them.

I was wondering if there was a dedicated server set up for the bit-tech steam group yet?

I play on highest settings @ 1680 x 1050, was playing a co-op at the time so I'm hoping it's just a bit of lag
Denis_iii 20th November 2008, 11:41 Quote
yea, plays perfect single player campaign but play online and add a lil lag and things go wierd

I just tend to wander down to Game, but call me a rampant traditionalist. I just like the idea that I can't be prevented from playing games I've bought because the publisher forgot/can't be bothered/got bored of supporting the activation servers.

How does the multiplayer piece work....

Do you have to host a server yourself on the same box you are playing on (360 style).. or connect to public server (are these provided or is it like jolt / multiplay etc ?)

Are 4 players co-op the max ?

Are there any other online game modes ... eg. like Hoarde on the 360 etc ?

My copy should arrive tomorrow. On Amazon.co.uk its £19.99 which is actually cheaper than steam due to the $/£ rate at the moment. That's just plain wrong. I would have loved to buy from steam directly, but Im not gonna get robbed !

I'd just like to say myself and three steam friends completed Dead Air last night on advanced without a single restart and all four survivors getting rescued :D It was quite possibly the proudest moment I've ever experiences in multi-player gaming - WOO!

Sure, I understand... many will want to head down to the local games store and that's fine. Steam is widely considered (just read the bit-tech forums, it's not just us saying this) the best digital distribution platform out there - I've certainly read a lot of "if only this was on Steam" comments recently, that's for sure. I think that speaks volumes about how well received Steam is.

I understand your worries with the activation servers, but that's the same with any game requiring online activation (which is a large portion these days thanks to Securom) that you buy from Game. I think the last time anyone had a problem with Steam's activation servers was in the HL2 era, where Valve just completely screwed the pooch big time... but even then, many weren't affected at all. :)

You can host locally or connect to a dedicated server which is automatically selected, although for co-op a local host on a decent broadband connection is more than enough for lag free zombie blasting fun times. The dedicated servers seem a little dodgy to us, as you;re never sure if you're connecting to a well run server by a company, or a 386 in some guys basement.

Yes 4-player co-op is the max, although you can play 8 player versus with 4 players taking over as the boss infected.

And in regards of hold out modes like horde from GOW2 - nothing in the game, but I'm sure it won't take long for the modders to sort something out. The finale levels are very much like it though, with you having to hold a certain location and tons of zombies attacking.
