Alien Swarm free on Monday
Well, Valve have just made it exceedingly unlikely I'll ever bother with Alien Breed, because new game. Free. Monday.

Those effects look pretty good.
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

Re: Alien Swarm free on Monday
indeed!
So as through a glass, and darkly
The age long strife I see
Where I fought in many guises,
Many names, but always me.

There are only 10 types of people in the world , those that understand binary and those that don't.

Full Auto - I've got a bullet here with your name on it, and I'm going to keep firing until I find out which one it is.

I've never heard of this before, but the gameplay video looks exceedingly like Shadowgrounds, which makes me very happy. :D

Alien breed is a lot older than shadow grounds though

Tried out the offline practice mission. Game needs a proper tutorial or manual or something so, I dunno, they'll tell you how to switch weapons and crap. :P

It's a lot of fun though.

All in all, having played through using the single-player option (via developer console) they don't want to admit exists, it's fun, sure, but only the last level of the mini-episode they gave us is actually impossible to complete without the assistance of another player.

Playing this game single-player is like playing Freespace 2 without Bosch.

You mean it removes a lot of unresolved plot threads that don't necessarily make sense? :P

Hey, I didn't want to play single, it wouldn't connect to anything in a reasonable timeframe. I just find it amusing that the supposedly rudimentary AI will see you that far.

yeah, it takes forever to connect, but once it does, you'll stay in that game for a loooong time.

We should maybe get together a list of steam users on the HLP forums, and friendsify each other so we have a large user base to play with.

Hey, I tried to play a match with you guys but you booted me. :P

That was the only game I could actually get to connect in a reasonable timeframe too.
