A First Look At LEFT 4 DEAD 2

Egads!

E3 has kicked off hard!  While other sites will give you indepth coverage, I thought I’d just highlight the things that I dug as they come about.

The first of which…Left 4 Dead 2.

Scheduled for release on November 17th, exclusive to XBox 360 and PC, this sequel to the amazing first person shooter that’s pretty much been glued to my disc tray since it released, takes the setting to New Orleans, features a brand new cast (seen in the campaign poster above), and adds melee weapons like chainsaws and axes to the mix.

I’ve embedded the debut trailer below. Watch and get excited!

Reminder: THE STRAIN Hits Shelves Tomorrow!

You know, it’s weird to be excited about a book that isn’t Harry Potter, for once.

But tomorrow, the much anticipated Vampire novella The Strain hits your local book retailer.  Written by one of Blast-O-Rama’s creative forces, Guillermo Del Toro, with assistance from Chuck Hogan.

Part one of a sure-to-be-exciting trilogy, The Strain is a book I featured here before, but I thought was worth mentioning again. I mean, really, does anyone need another Twilight book taking up a spot in the New York Times best sellers list?

If the concept of Del Toro writing a gritty, no-holds barred vampire book isn’t enough for you…how about a trailer? Maybe two?

I can’t recall another book series that has featured trailers before, but these two videos should have you nice and ready to read The Strain when it releases tomorrow, June 2nd.
