Alien Swarm FREE 4 player co-op from Valve

Recommended Posts

I've got it. Only played it once though. You basically need to have Skype running in the background as there's no chat in the game and type talking is just a nightmare. Quite like it from the quick game I've had.

It's the same engine as Left 4 Dead so you use the 'C' key for voice chat. You might need to make sure it's been binded to that key in the options though.

I only played a bit but liked playing heavy weapons dude. Ony problem is unless you're defending a position you end up blasting the shit out of your team. So I ended up just defending our rear (arf).

When you're in a slow motion bit heavy weapons guy own though, between my turret and minigun.

To be honest, I reckon the heavy weapons should always take up the rear (arf!). I was getting really pissed off playing with some guys online where the heavy was just firing forward into everyone, leaving me as the medic to deal with the rear, which is fucking stupid.

Also, people who don't protect the tech when he's hacking terminals. Fucking idiots.

I played with 3 friends so it was pretty easy to help the tech/medic. Lots of screams of "defend the tech"/"heal meh!".

My personal favourite, "I saved your FUCKING life there!".

Bit like left 4 dead really. :up:

This game is decent - reminds me of Smash TV mixed with some L4D and the developer's love for Aliens is pretty obvious. You can't go wrong seeing as it's free, but I have hardly played it that much because Starcraft 2 has consumed me.
