  • Alien Swarm Source Release on 7/19/10

    This isn't exactly a first person shooter, but I couldn't find another suitable place to post this, so here it is :D The long awaited version of Alien Swarm for Valve's Source engine is being released on Steam for free on Monday 7/19/10.

        My Resume includes Pirate, Mercenary, and a Devil Dog, what else do you want.

        When you can't run anymore, you crawl and when you can't do that, you find someone to carry you.

                I'm up for getting some Hard-mode games in.
                There's quite a tactical element to this game, especially in harder difficulties.

                Make sure to check the mission briefing (you can get to it in the lobby, the button in the lower right) which will tell you certain things about the mission like that you need a tech who can open the doors, or that you'll be stationary for an extended period at some point in the level...

                Also suggest that we actually make use of the "Officer" class and have that person actually lead the team, and have him decide the load out appropriately for the mission. He can also draw his plan out on the map for everyone to see, once you're in-game. :)

                        This game is an awesome shooter that requires team play to succeed! Friendly Fire is always on so running around trying to dodge aliens can get you killed by your own people. The aliens also come from every direction so you have to have people guarding your back. Ammo is limited which really adds to the tension of the game.

                        Also, it is 100% free of charge on Steam. Just go to Steam, go to the Alien Swarm page in the Store section and download it! Happy hunting you guys!

                          I have trouble keeping track of my cursor with all the effects and have lost interest due to other games, but it is quite entertaining and I had a blast playing the games that I did!
