    The jockey. Jumps on peoples heads and tries to force them in a different direction.

    The gamemode looks pretty cool, there's a few videos around of the new gamemode, infected and even a female boomer :D

    I thought the infected you played as in L4D1 were 'special infected' and only tanks and witches were bosses

    If you watch youtube video's, you do get to play as these new infected. You could also play as Tank's in the first L4D, when the AI director decides to give you one. But you couldn't play as a witch.

    Boomer was female in L4D.

    Jockey looks a little too comical, its like they took the gritty, atmosphereic, post apocolyptic world they'd nailed so damn perfectly and thrown it off one of those seattle skyscrapers.... :(

    and YET again, the people they get to play for the video demos are the most unbelievably rubbish players ever. see how they split up instantly, one guy gets pinned and no one goes to his rescue? Game publicists need some kind of quality control over who they let play their game for video demos, it gives out a REALLY bad indication of what it's like.

    Also, lawlwtfxbawkssucks.

    This one too fills me with dispair.. where are all the millions of zombies? he kills about 4 in the entire 2 minute run... Teamwork out the window then if you can run off on your own like that for the whole time without fear of attack..

    What have they done to this game!! :mellow:

    But you do play as tank... And you don't as witch because it would be boring

    no their are videos of boomers so i would assume all can be played (also female boomer apparently)

    The "boss" and "special" infected apparently in l4d are the same. Even valve is not consistent with the names so at this point it doesnt make a different i guess.

    Hence the fail.

    Just pushing this out in the open. I probably won't have enough money to buy the game this year (I might barely make it by the steam holiday sale). The reason why it's harder is because I rarely get money and my parents are paranoid about using their credit cards online so I would have to buy a pre-paid gift card for 60$.

    get a debit card you only have to be 15 at least in Florida. Or give them 60 bucks and say can i use your credit card to buy something online or actually 45 bucks however much it is.
