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)

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.

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.

Yeah i think the view is part of the charm - takes some getting used to but its a nice change.

Not sure its a game that's going to last though. Seems that these 4 player coops are really fun for a few months and then rapidly drop off :|

Was reading some info on Alien Swarm, when I came across this:

With that in mind, we've added "Onslaught" mode, which introduces an AI Director that dynamically generates swarms of aliens based on several factors, such as the squad's stress level. Onslaught works with any difficulty setting and ensures no mission plays the same way twice.


Sounds like it's trying to imitate L4D, which isn't a bad thing if I am honest. If anything it seems like a good idea for a game like this. After all, it can get boring killing zombies now and again, so why not go kill some aliens :wink: They've also added some new difficulty levels as well. Just in case the game wasn't hard enough for you

Game is probably dead that's why you are not getting any servers.

Actually this looks like a good new game from valve and it is free to play. I just need more time to have a copy of it. I need to download it completely until midnight.
