Lone Gunman, Following L4D2, Movie Fan, Next Wednesday



Lone Gunman
You and your Magnum against the deadly horde and Boomers.
So you have your Magnum pistol and… well you do have your Magnum pistol. You better be counting bullets because four swipes by a common and you are dead. Getting boomed? Forget about it.

Following Left 4 Dead 2
How do you follow Left 4 Dead 2? It depends on your platform.

If you are on the PC or Mac:
Facebook Only4%
Twitter Only2%
Steam Forums Only36%
Facebook/Twitter/Steam5%
Facebook/Twitter1%
Facebook/Steam16%
Twitter/Steam4%
None of the above32%


Another way to look at it is 26% PC/Mac players use Facebook, 12% use Twitter, 61% use the Steam forums and 32% use none of those ways.


If you are on the 360:
Facebook Only22%
Twitter Only2%
Steam Forums Only9%
Facebook/Twitter/Steam6%
Facebook/Twitter5%
Facebook/Steam7%
Twitter/Steam1%
None of the above48%


That means 40% Xbox 360 players use Facebook, 14% use Twitter, 23% use the Steam forums and 48% use none of those ways.

If we combine the communities – they are about the same size - 33% use Facebook, 14% use Twitter, and 43% use the Steam Forums and 40% use none of these. These numbers do not include the non-votes and only include players who read the blog so the – none of these – option is probably much larger. We have some work to do…
