Stupid power died right when I was downloading...

For those of you who are reluctant to download it, you get a free TF2 hat if you finish 2 missions.

I will have to get that when high-speed internet I will download that. I have to wait for 4G to come to my area to even get broadband

Just thought I'd share this with you guys, mainly for those who haven't seen this yet: Play Alien Swarm in 1st person mode.

Awesome free game. Add me on steam, it's the same one as I'm using for the forums.

Downloaded. My M11x's tiny screen makes some games hard to play. Meat-and-potatoes shooters are no harder, but some where is important to see small details or where distances are important make it harder, such as this game (and any racing games). But it still works and its wonderful on my 25" 1080p screen.

the game supports eyefinity resolutions, but hacking terminals and reading PDAs make for a cumbersome experience in those insane resolutions, because the cursor disappears in the stretched out hacking/PDA windows. however, it is nice to be able to see around corners and look a bit ahead of your path :)

Just finished it last night with 2 friends on Easy, hopefully we can go through Normal mode for more unlocks.

Wow this sucks. Alien Swarm updated, and now it crashes to desktop on my computer. I haven't tried the M11x yet, lets see if it shares the issue.
EDIT: Nope, works fine on the laptop... just CTDs on the desktop. blah. :cry:

I've been getting a lot of crashes lately too since the update. About half the games I try to join put me right back on the desktop.

That's pretty cool .. thanks.

I prefer 3rd person .. 1st looks like a bad Doom clone .. but it is fun to see how easily you can transition to 1st person.

It's a pretty fun game, me and my brother played through the first mission, but since it was just the two of us, whenever I died (the tech), it was basically mission failed since he couldn't hack the terminals :p

The Steam name is Wolf18.

On a side note, I noticed that it was downloading the dedicated server for Alien Swarm, so I paused it and the game itself finished and I was playing it. Well, today I decided to clean up my Steam downloads section so I went to Tools, and on the Alien Swarm Dedicated Server chose to delete local content... and it deleted the game and the dedicated server so now I have to redownload the whole game :( what the heck?
