Brick Gamers 29 - Left 4 Dead

Click on the comic to open a larger version in a new tab/window. It was re-sized from the printed mag GameAxis, so it wasn't designed to display on the Web.

If you don't already know by now, Left 4 Dead, from the makers of Half-Life and Counter-Strike (that's Valve to the uninitiated), is one of the most recent popular games to grace the industry. It lives off the whole "Zombie world" premise (like Resident Evil), but thanks to it's killer features, makes it a successful gaming attraction. This made BrickGamers decided to do a comic on it! :)

It's so popular, during the Lego Apocalypse theme initiated by fans internationally, elements of the game were made by users! We posted an entry here in October 2008 so go check it out too!

You can also see more pictures of the Lego Apocalypse based on Left 4 Dead by visiting the game's blog here.

Sometimes You Just Can't Win

Gamer girlfriend result

Poor Joe. His plan to pacify his girlfriend backfired (30th August 2008). Now he has to put up with the humilation of being bested by her. While we've heard of the phrase "the student becomes the master", in this case, it doesn't really warrant it!

While we're not sure how many gamers out there have such bad luck as Joe here, it is a fact that some gamer boyfriends have regretted introducing a game to their girlfriends - only to find her being addicted to the game even more than him! Case in point - Sims! Or any puzzle-based games!

Hint: There's an Easter Egg in the comic above - see if you can spot it! For the answer, just highlight the area below with your mouse pointer!

Joe Vig is a Lego culture joke about a minifig (miniature figurine) who always wears a red top and is prone to bad luck - kinda like the jinx of the Lego world. Just Google to find out about him.

Too much Production or Protection?


When a software company's production is too popular, chances are they will start to take drastic measures like these to prevent pirated (illegal) copies of their game or application to run. However, there's also a downside to this for the legal or legit user. They're force to put up with hardships even though they're honest. Does that mean it doesn't pay to pay? We let you decide...

Here goes nothing...

Brick Lives

It feels like what they say "Any moment is as good as the next...".

2009 seems like a stumbling start. The economy, the mode of the world with a war to boot. How can we have all the "fun" to ourselves? Let the minifigs (Lego Mini Figurines) join the fray we say! That's the main idea behind BrickLives (, BrickGamers' sister comic series.

Don't we all...?

We're not sure whether it's due to the change of pace in life, an over-saturated gaming market, or too much unpolished software, but it's an established fact that the current trend of an average gamer is that they now have more unfinished titles on hand than not!

With seemingly multiple epic titles being released very close with each other, and current demands of real life, we gamers ourselves won't know who to blame either!
