    Re: The Sacrafice

    Meh, not too fussed myself :S The art keeps flipping from gritty realism to more cartoony, and the blood is far too overdone, even for when they're killing zombies. It blocks the line of sight too much.
    The writings better, but still let itself down at points.

    It got better for me around page 24, maybe it's just because the first bit is what we've all seen before, dunno. Enjoyed it in the end I guess

    I did like the heavy weapons guy miniature lying around

    This one was way better than the first i think, much more action and serious insight into the story.

    If you have not read the comic these spoilers may spoil it for you. Spoil.

    Yea, that sure was a twist. I would bet the l4d2 croud are carriers aswell.... ORRR they are immune and in the end the doctor uses the l4d2 characters immunity to create a cure for the l4d1 survivors!

    Re: The Sacrifice

    awesome stuffs looking forward to the next parts, also steam forums are rife with conspiricies about the woman soldier wearing a gas mask that bears a striking resemblence to tf2's pyro gas mask, therefore pyro=girl, personally i think just the mask was a little hidden reference

    but that particular one has the big round eyes (the other masks had more squarish eyes) also as far as i remember that particular one had the filter on the same side as pyro's

    Re: The Sacrifice

    part 3 = getting more epic

    Spoiler: Reveal
    i think bill was pissed off at the military for locking them up and probably would have poked and prodded the survivors to try and find a cure, so he left them behind, also in the last page i think it was where it shows the train leaving theres a few smokers and a tank not far behind, can't blame him for not stopping for people who wanted to keep him locked up, or maybe hes spent too much time with francis and now hates everything except vests too

    Anyone else wonders if you'll be able to play as one of those gas mask soldiers in the Sacrifice?

    Re: The Sacrifice

    i think they might be the new uncommon commons maybe? immune to bile bombs because of the gas masks perhaps? would be cool if they did a spin off campaign where you got to play as 4 military personell, maybe a last stand type of thing at echo base, where the finale is nwinnable for survivors, its just a suped up survival
