Trailer Released For “PAYDAY: No Mercy”, The Left 4 Dead-PAYDAY Crossover

Left 4 Dead

Last month, it was announced that Overkill’s PAYDAY: The Heist and Valve’s Left 4 Dead would come together, through a sort of crossover. Not in the form of a full game, but rather, in the form of some sort of DLC release – much like how the Potato Fools’ Day cross-game events played out (but with none of the glyph hunting and potato farming).

Well, it turns out that Valve and Overkill are not kidding around, as a teaser trailer has just been released for PAYDAY: No Mercy.

“A Call For Communication/Message To Valve” Movement Still Going, Now Has Its Own Steam Group

Half-Life

Despite what Valve plans or doesn’t plan to do regarding the next Half-Life, or how long they plan on developing it, there’s no denying that they’ve dropped the ball when it comes to communicating with the Half-Life community, and the gaming community at large. As a result, they may have inflicted a fatal injury upon the franchise and its community. There’s better ways to ensure a lengthy development time than acting like the franchise in question doesn’t exist, and occasionally annoying your fanbase by blatantly trolling them.

Whenever Half-Life 3 does come out, we’re all pretty sure it’s going to be monumental. I wouldn’t expect any less from a Half-Life game that’s been in development for nearly a decade. But I think we can all agree that Valve isn’t doing this right. At all. So what can we do? Can we even do anything at all? Well, there might be something. Let’s see what it is…

Gaming Heads Announces New L4D2 Tank Statue

Left 4 Dead

Gaming Heads, the merchandiser which has recently signed a deal with Valve to produce Valve universe-related merchandise, has just announced the first in their line of L4D2 based statues: The Tank.

This faithfully recreated statue of the Tank looks excellent, cast in high-quality poly-stone and featuring luminous eyes. Pre-orders are now live, so if you want one, hurry, cause there’s only 750 units worldwide, and they are released in Q1 2011.

The standard version of the Tank statue has a price of $299.99, while the “Exclusive” version (which is highly limited at only 300 units worldwide), which also features a to scale Pump Action Shotgun has a price of $324.99.

It is a bit pricey, but it looks really awesome!
