Before I get on the subject of Killing Floor let me first state that I will go to any means necessary to make a Zombie Apocalypse possible in this life time. No not really but damn I want one to happen. I’ve been a Fan of the Zombie franchise for the majority of my life. I love the games, movies, and comics. Nearly anything Zombie Related. Just the thought of possibly surviving using wits and strength to fight or outsmart the oncoming horde of flesh hungry undead makes my heart warm!
Well now I shall get back onto topic. What is Killing Floor? Killing Floor is a zombie game that I play on occasion with friends. It’s a Co-op online 6 player game, unfortunately I don’t have 5 other friends to play with so I do play with some random people, most of which I hate, however the game is still enjoyable nonetheless.
Here’s a little background of the game. You’re one of many different people (You can choose many characters) who have been able to survive the on-coming waves of Zombies. Well they’re not actually zombies; they’re left over ‘specimens’ from attempted cloning of monster soldiers. They come in many shapes and sizes and use many different tools of which range from Invisibility to Chain guns. This makes everyone on your team work together to destroy the endless amount of these disgusting things.
Working together to survive can be a fun or hateful experience. A couple of times I have played with people who can’t speak English or know how to press the shoot button. Half of the people I have played with have shown the quality of having no brain and are just like the zombies they’re killing. A bit Ironic, isn’t it? In Killing Floor you can select perks. Perks are basically an enhancement applied to your person to make them better. Each perk has different levels which enable more damage, cheaper weapons and so on. Each perk asks for a requirement to be levelled up which requires you to kill, heal, and weld and many other different things.
Game play of Killing Floor is similar to that of a common first person shooter. Mindlessly killing zombies can be quite an exhausting experience upon oneself so I do recommend if you pick up this game, or any other similar game, that you also pick up a pack of Red bull and high in sugar candy. You’ll need as much of your strength as you can muster just to kill the many, many zombies who are just trying to eat a meal. I have gone through, an estimated $758.96 worth of Red bull in the last 3 weeks alone just by playing this game.
Some say my obsession with zombie games isn’t a healthy course to set my life onto. Well, we’ll see whose unhealthy course saves them in the event of a zombie apocalypse, I believe by over preparing I have more chance of survival than anyone of the 2 people who tell me to stop playing and to sleep. I’ll show them one day. Assholes.
