Re: Alien Swarm free on Monday
Free games don't count since that was the point of the discussion. You have to have paid for something in order to add friends to your steam account.
Portal would have counted, though, since it's a retail game, and the free promotion was only for a limited time.

And I concur with the consensus: if there's nothing on Steam that interests you, you have no place calling yourself a gamer. :p

Portal didn't count.  My brother got a steam account with free Portal as well as HL2: Deathmatch and HL2: Lost Coast.  He still can't add friends to his friends list or join Steam groups, he has to pay for something first.

Yes, because you're so likely to get it for discount anywhere else. Like the whole Summer Stay Indoors sale that discounted practically everything on Steam.

...oh wait.

Finally just decided to force (redid Cargo Bay over and over on singleplayer) the Tesla Cannon Achievement.  Ridiculous, expecting anyone to get it otherwise.

Oh, and:


Solo perfected Landing Bay on hard difficulty using the flamethrower and tesla cannon.  :D

I had it long before that. :P I think I did it before the other weapon achievements.

I don't think the Tesla cannon was nerfed, just the trap.

Quote from: Alien Swarm News
The major changes include:
Fixed ammo usage on the Tesla Cannon to properly decrease 4 times a second instead of 2 (doubled clip size to account for this).
Rebalanced Tesla Cannon’s damage to encourage it to be used more as a support weapon.
Tesla Cannon will now use ammo slowly even when it isn’t damaging something.

I nearly one-manned the cargo elevator on Hard with the PDWs. Right as it parked, though, I ran out of ammo.

And there's one more wave while the side bridge drops.

Onslaught is fun. Liberally peppers the levels with parasites and shield bugs, at least on hard, and then throws in enormohordes every so often for good measure.
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.

Dunno. Could be that I'm SANE.

I think the rest of reality would dispute that. Particularly since Portal was free for awhile.

Never tried Portal. Don't have the time or inclination.. Prolly should tough.

I suppose he'll crap all over his beloved SotS too? That's available off Steam. Along with a crapload of other stuff that wasn't made by Valve. I haven't used it to purchase a single Valve product myself.

I do have the SOTS complete collection...bought off gamersgate. F'course I don't play multi much.

Apparently no one has finished the campaign on Brutal Onslaught yet. Can't say I'm surprised :D
