The Inner Gamer,

217: World War Z, Left 4 Dead 2 and Avengers: Endgame

April 29, 2019

World War Z is finally here and it has all the right formulas to be a loyal successor to Left 4 Dead 2. Does it succeed? Brett talks about his experiences so far with the horde, the co-op mechanics, the progression system and more. In order to properly compare, we dive back into Left 4 Dead 2 to see how it holds up. There’s also a strong modding community around it now so we start modding the game to add a little fun.

In our news segment, analysts predict PC gaming is dying again but it very well could be if Epic Games Store keeps going down the path they do with essentially blackmail of Steam. Games as a service are also taking over with Titanfall 3 delayed even further due to the success of Apex: Legends. Finally, a game is developed that can detect Alzheimer’s faster than medical tests and it’s fun to play!

Avengers: Endgame released this past weekend and broke box office records. Last year, Marvel’s Spider-Man dropped and there are rumors a Marvel Gamesverse is being created. If this happened, what kinds of games do we want to see? We predict the best types of games using all the characters from the films and comics with a few movie spoilers towards the end.
