Left 4 Dead 2: Silent Hill: Otherside of Life Ep.1 Part 1

Today Active Variety bring you another Left 4 Dead 2 custom map. This one is called Silent Hill: Otherside of Life according to the map developer Leafo said that the map is based on various events, real life locales and other weird random events from games and movies.

The map so far is pretty damn long for being a custom map, I wasn’t able to keep the video short enough to fit it all in one video unless I just skip through most parts, first initial impression of the map: awesome custom audio and texture of the campaign it self, even the characters have their own custom outfit which I find it interesting.

The map maker said that the map is meant to be played as single player campaign but as Nick and I continue with the map we find the AIs to be a little hard to work with.. The custom map is 90% done, so far he updates it pretty often which is good. Hope you guys enjoy Silent Hill: Otherside of Life, to be continued..

One Step At A Time

Getting back into blogging after being away for a month is hard, I was away for a week with some of my favorite people in the world; some friends and my boyfriend for Electric Daisy Carnival at Las Vegas. Click here and check out a little clip Nick recorded at EDC.

Nick and I didn’t really know what to record so we decided to chill out and play some mini games like Uno and Draw My Thing from OMGPOP one step at a time right?

We have a Left 4 Dead 2 video that we’re working on, it’s another custom map called Silent Hill: Otherside of Life, eventually I hope we can cover all the default maps.

Left 4 Dead 2: Dniepr Ep. 4 and Left 4 Dead Trading Cards? Yes, Please!

This is episode 4 of Left 4 Dead 2’s custom map Dniepr on Active Variety, overall Nick and I enjoyed the custom map, I was afraid it might be short like most of the other custom maps but it was a good decent length.

Did you know Left 4 Dead have their own trading card game over Steam? If you are in the beta you can view them in your profile, you will receive 4 cards for owning Left 4 Dead 2, there are 8 cards total. To complete 8 cards you will need to trade with friends or even just people you come across. Hey, another way to meet new people right?

When you complete collecting all 8 you can craft it into a badge and earn emoticon item, profile background, chance to get a discount coupon, and 100 experience points for your steam level.

How do you guys feel about trading card games? It reminds me of back in the days when people used to trade Pokemon cards or Magic cards.

Will be glad to do more Left 4 Dead videos when we get back 🙂 we might do more custom maps or default maps in expert mode. Will take any suggestions of what other games to play multiplayer or single players as usual.

BLARG on another note.. Cleamie’s brain isn’t working at the moment, having to wake up super early to do inventory at work and so much to do for the past week very overwhelming will send my love to you all this weekend 🙂 On hour 21 of being awake. Goodnight all have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Left 4 Dead 2: Dinepr EP. 3 Part 2

Bill The SacrificeHere is Left 4  Dead 2 : Dinepr Ep. 3 Part 2 on Active Variety.

Did you guys know they have a comic? I’ve always wondered what happened with Bill in the map The Sacrifice, well the comic answered it for me, it was very entertaining to read. They show parts of the survivors’ history right before the infection started.

Once again, feedbacks, suggestions, questions and criticisms are always welcome. Or tell me a joke, that’s always welcome too.

>_< After long frustrated, exhausting week of being missing I still have so much to do but so little time. I finally got around to editing and rendering our Ep. 3 of Dniepr from Left 4 Dead 2! I decided to split it in 2 parts so it wouldn’t be so long to watch and it won’t take as long to upload either. I apologize for the inconstant blog post and uploads, I’m trying to catch up on all the things I missed too. *Including Stress Free Dance Party*

How are you guys been this whole week? Summer is fast approaching, you know what that means.. yes Steam Summer Sale! Every year when summer rolls around I always get excited and at the same time stressed out, lots of events going on, and of course lots of games on sale and lots of games are also coming out after summer. Means my wallet is going to hate me 😦

This is Left 4 Dead 2: Dniepr Ep.3 Part 1, Part 2 is being rendered and uploaded now as well!

Left 4 Dead 2: Dniepr EP. 2

DnieprHappy June 1st! I hope you guys enjoyed Ep. 1 of Dniepr on Active Variety. If you missed it be sure to check it out here.

Today I’d like to give you guys a little overview of the Dniepr mod it self, Dniepr is a Left 4 Dead 2 mod that took place in Ukraine as well as Pripyat, this mod was in development for 3 years, they have their own original textures, models and soundtracks.  The mod  was released on May 20th of this year, 2013.

Here is a trailer:

Like I said in my last blog post, I’m really impressed with this mod so far, it’s fun, it’s not too easy like many other custom maps I’ve tried and it’s a really thought-out map only thing is that the map only has 4 stages not like many other maps out there that has 5.

Here is EP. 2 of Dniepr! As always, enjoy, leave me a comment, feedback, or suggestion!
