  • Vote for Alien Swarm on GIGA.de

    I got over this page on another website, and thought I should mentioned to you guys that you can vote for Alien Swarm in GIGA.de's Best Mod contest. I have no idea what the contest is about tho, since I can't read german. If anyone could enlighten me a bit, that would be cool.

    I'm just trying to register now, so I can vote.

    The introduction text above
    In der Ego-Shooter Szene entstanden, mittlerweile aber auch in anderen Genres zu Hause. Was sich fernab vom eigentlichen Spielprinzip kostenlos auf Game-Engines entwickeln lأ¤sst, beeindruckt die Spielerwelt immer wieder aufs Neue. Welche Modifikation ist die beste des Jahres?
    could be translated directly (Babelfish-style) as:
    "Originally from the ego-shooter scene, but meanwhile at home (common) in other genres too: The things that can be developed for free on game engines far away from the original concept of the game impress the gamers community again and again. Which modification is the best of the year?"

      No offense, but AS doesn't stand a chance in this poll.

      I guess DesertCombat will win by a large margin.

        I'd have to agree with tet here i'm afraid, while AS is a great mod, the community is tiny compared to DC.

        Although i'll make every effort to sign up and vote for AS anyway, you never know ;-)

          Nonetheless, it's cool they put Alien Swarm into the poll. It deserved recognition, that's why I posted it here.

          Thanks for translating.

            DC is a great mod, but it kind of not balance. I can kill two tanks with single life in BF and other variation of BF, but I don't even get a scratch on the M1A2 in DC. And I am not calling myself "tank hunter" for nothing.

            Anyway, my opinion is AS is more balance and better than DC.

            [EDIT] I am the supreme dual monitor canoner/rocketer in BFs as well[/EDIT]

              Comparing DC with AS is utterly pointless because it's two completely different games.

              I played DC for about 1 year before I switched to UT2004. I loved DC. I liked DC a lot better than the original BF and I think it had pretty good balance.

                Not if you see the engineer-M1A2 or engineer-BMP combo at the door of your base...just need one of that and you are toasted...

                Anyway, I am not saying that DC is not a good mod. I would just say everyone have his/her favorite/taste, right ? ^_^

                    apache eh? I have only seen three good pilots for the choppers in DC who can really toast the enginner-tank/BMP/APC combo, but not in their base tho. You can't really take off, with a BMP/tank near the flag(may be you can for one or two map ). I tried to do something to break that combo in DC, but no luck so far... (it is nothing for me in BF or other BF variations, just the DC give me headaches...)

                      This isn't a DC discussion board, but here's my two cents:

                      They sure put a lot of work into that mod to make it everything it is ...
                      More than 1/3 of the servers for BF are playing DC, and its also a reason many people buy the game. I haven't played any of the BF games in a long time, but DC still entertains me.

                      Alien Swarm is totally addicting as well in its own right, but doesn't have as much content or exposure as DC does. I don't think many people are buying 2k4 to play AS ...

                      Let's change this, shall we?
                      "Crack the panel!"
                      "Once upon a happenstance, I did myself connect to a game-hosting combobulation."

                        I, quite literally, did.
                        It's not my fault everything you like is terrible.

                          I bought UT2k4 for the mods more than anything.

                            Yeah I was bummed out when I found I had more fun playing the demo than the retail. ASw saved the day.
