    I don't see how it was; perhaps we can get some developer commentary on this point?
    I was being polite. The rage burns deep within my frame.

    Some developer commentary would be interesting.

    PS: DeepQantas is a goon. I was not aware of this.

    In any case, I hope the original cast returns with some new voice-overs!

    It's an undercover mission.


    Didn't notice at first but apparently there's a gameplay video out, too:

    Gratz to all involved. I'm sure that THN will have a server up before too long, assuming this thing still needs servers?

    "Two years ago Valve hired the talented team behind the popular top down co-op mod Alien Swarm (read: Dalai, Cythe and solaris). Since then they have been busy working on the Left 4 Dead Series, and now Portal 2. However, we never forgot about Alien Swarm and the team has spent a lot of time bringing the game to Source in between their contributions to the other Valve projects."

    So the new game has only up to 4 players? I guess that makes it easier to balance.

    Looks great. I've never wanted a weekend to be over so fast before!

    Awesome.
    Over 40 weapons and equipment with countless loadout configurations
    Complete game code and mod tools
    Unlock persistent items by gaining levels
    Tile-based map generation tool
    And it's free and doesn't have ridiculous system requirements !

    I loved the video esp the gameplay one and the way that the door collapsed and killed the marine

    btw do we have to post to the other forum now?

    If you wish to journey into the cesspool that is the Steam Forums, I cannot follow you friend.

    Now why would you pirate a game free of charge?

  23. #53
    I had the biggest nerd gasm ever. Thought I was over gaming but I CANNOT WAIT!. 2 more days for me!

    I'll tell EVERYONE I know about it and get them on board. Here's hoping Valve didn't ruin BCG's creative control!

    Some of us will be over at the Steam forums too, but these ones will keep running. Actually there's a sticky at the top of the Steam AS forum directing people here

    Wow -- I figured you guys were at Valve, but I was suspecting Alien Swarm had fallen by the wayside.

    Glad to see it didn't, and congrats on getting it finished. Can't wait to play; the original Alien Swarm beta test is still one of the best co-op game experiences I've had.

    I went to edit the "when it's done" release date in that FAQ I posted like five years back, but it was already unstickied. XD

    I've also noticed this version has potentially the worst/most humiliating acronym of all Source games, if one just tacks "Source" on the end since the UT2k4 version was the original. Alien Swarm: Source.

    I think I'll be calling it AS2010.
    Previously known as Exo. Yes, that Exo.
