Alien Swarm from Valve [FREE GAME]

Given our kin-ship with HalfLife 2, here is a separate forum to discuss anything related to HalfLife 2 and the various Mods out there (eg, Gary Mod, Zombie mod etc)

Since the tools are out the community will make up some more content, and I think since the original mod team that created the game made the Source conversion in thier spare time I doubt they will simply drop it now, plus the TF 2 Hat tie leads me to speculate that Valve may have plans to run with this for a while... it is after all a relatively cheap source of positive image boosting (free game + free updates).
Sometimes keeping an eye on your stats is not a good thing :P

There do seem to be custom maps out, but you can't download from the client host, not surprised given how little the average upload rate is for connections in general

I wonder how big a typical map or campaign would be :S

Now one medal and level 24 after a day's acclimatisation and hammering.
This kinda game just strikes such a good balance between casual and intense. Don't need pinpoint accuracy, then again still need to be aware and just can't go on autopilot. Love it!

Not sure how I feel about doing insane runs, tried one at the end of last night and ntoiced first level before the dual tech doors are immediately parasites and they're no fun. It'll up the intensity which I love but with unsyncronized people will just be frustrating.

Now speedruns, they're always fun!

It's awesome. I hope someday UKCS will get a couple AS servers up, especially if Valve supports it with additional content.

Also don't underestimate the PDW as a burst/secondary weapon.

Hmm when you get to 27 you have the option to be promoted (up to 3 times) and start off at level one again but not if you were lvl 8.
Yep, UKCS should deffo get some servers!!! Brilliant game!!! <3

I like Alien Swarm. Its a good shooter. Pity that it wasn't made a First-Person-Shooter. If it was, it'd be a lot easier to aim, turn etc.
