ugh, thought i put AS behind me all those years ago... though it's hard to come back when there are no servers going... anyway, heard about the release when i noticed a friend was playing it... surprised the hell out of me. So played a bit, found a bug... reloading ammo satches.

Oh, and I can't even begin listing all the improvements in usability and so on... There aren't even any platformer sections! Just have to once more thank you for the awesome work this is!
I miss being able to platform.

Only bug I encountered 'other than the intended kind' was getting knocked above the height of the walls and then down into some wall deco mess. Got stuck, but a flyer bump later unstuck me.

Pretty fun. Original was necessarily more novel and therefor holds the crown, for me.

Welp, got to mission 5 on insane and unlocked Armory Access achievement (max level and all weapons). I guess it's time to call it a night... or a morning. For today. More!

(PS. The freezing sentry rocks!)

Edit: It's probably not the maximum level but unlocked all weapons anyway.

It would be good if the DEV's puts in an infinite crate of ammo pile because when I was playing on the offline practice mode my team and I always ran out of ammunition.

Afraid it didn't outrank CS overall, but for a while


(Captured by DQ)

Seeing this with 30K players has put an immense smile on my face.

Now that's awesome timing... three weeks of downtime (relocation related) I'm back on the net, only to discover the sneaky bastards released it just maybe half a day early behind my back.

PS: just got it off steam and gave it a whirl. Looks mighty good at first glance. Had to remap a few keys to feel comfortable, otherwise it's a blast. Weapons have a very nice -ooompf-.

See you hunting!

The new bugtypes are getting... colourful nicknames.

Previously with Swarm and the likes I pleased my co-habitants at 4 am screaming in the mic OH SHIT INCOMING, MEEEDIC! ARRGH and so onwards.

Now, some gems have been stuff like SHIIT TWO INCOMING TESTICLES FROM ABOVE BURN THE DAMN THINGS! Perhaps this time people will be too weirded out to send angry notices.

Also, managed to execute a "last survivor, last corridor to exit, ditch the heavy autogun and just run through" on insane. It's still epic

Chillin' in the data files it seems. I took a look around the model list and there appear to be a couple of creatures not in the official campaign.
If you browse a little bit the different config files, you will notice that the map #5 is missing... Maybe an update? Maybe the "Uplink" map of ASI?

i've noticed it's much harder to rambo now on insane. can't really run circles around them too too easily.

Heya, just played through it all. Good stuff!

Controls and gameplay felt almost exactly like the UT version; very easy to transition to. Also, where did Flynn run off to?

edit: seems like no one uses the flare/rifle combo anymore, which is still rather effective

I'm using those almost all the time. It benefits whole team nicely if someone keeps lobbing flares around, and rifle is very versatile; it can deliver just the needed amount of firepower without wasting any bullets and I find it especially good for finishing off flamed bugs.

Me? Felix is your best bet as Rob and him are the admins of that group and only ones with invite rights. I'm not really affiliated with Alienswarm.de, just tagging along

And yeah, the general BCG group is a solid choice and should be free to join.
