Alien Swarm Free on Steam

Forums - PC Discussion - Alien Swarm Free on Steam

Just downloaded it. I'll try it tomorrow.



Around the Network

So after 2 hours of alien swarm I can conclude:

Very addicting
Great Co-OP (i like more than l4d)
overall fun :D

Thank you valve for a free great game that I would have probably paid a few dollars to buy



Picked it up, played it briefly, albeit offline.  Can't wait to play it with real people as opposed to bots.

See the original AS came out in 2004 and it was amazing. Then the team started to do AS:I but all of the sudden they disappeared around 2007. Many were-a-speculating and it turns out that the ones who said they went to Valve were right. They probably had some hand in L4D as well. I also agree, I have always loves AS more than L4D/2.

On another note, this game crashes at the weirdest times so eh.

It crashes for you?
I've been playing 5 hours and no crash for me :P
Didn't they say some of the team working on some of valve games now? (not sure which but assume l4d)

When I alt tab, or when I join some funky game. It seems to happen only once in a while and now it seems to have stabalized. I know I wasn't the only one either too.

Ahhh... "free" and "game". Two of my favourite words put together! Nice find Vlad.



Gonna dl this when I get home!

I remember reading about this back when it first came out, but didn't even get into it.



Alien Swarm is currently the most played game on Steam. It's probably bringing a few thousands new members to Steam.

Now it only needs to be released to the game-hungry MAC owners.
