L4D: OXM Review scans 9.5/10

OXM - November 8, 2008

That idea of a world in crisis that quickly boils down to its brutal essence is reflected in Left 4 Dead's gameplay. Grab gun, kill zombies, and survive you journey from point A to point B by any means necessary. Even the controls are basic: Right trigger fires or attacks. You can carry only pistols and one other gun. The D-pad handles your basic gear - flashlight, homemade bombs, first aid, and pain pills. Valve has cut the bloated survival-horror game down to the bone."

Valve's Doug admits PS3 success, re-evaluating...

PS3 Fanboy - August 21, 2008

It looks like the continued success of the PS3 has the studio taking back some of his words. "We're always evaluating what's happening in the marketplace and certainly something that's happening in the last couple of months is that Sony's managed to sell some boxes," said Doug Lombardi to CVG. "So whether or not you like developing for that platform, if they've got millions of people connected to that platform and buying their games you have to take it seriously."
