Left 4 Dead is a four-person co-op FPS about surviving a zombie outbreak made by Valve. Payday is a four-person co-op FPS about robbing things made by Overkill. The two similar games are going to get a lot more similar in Payday: No Mercy, which is also a Left 4 Dead prequel set in L4D’s Mercy Hospital. Destructoid says the heist involves getting a certain patient’s blood, which you can easily see going bad, especially during the chaos of a hospital-wide firefight. Silly criminals. If all you wanted was zombie blood, all you needed to do was sit back, grab a cold beer, and wait. The zombie blood will inevitably come to you. Thanks to SlyDante for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
