    Sounds reasonably cool, and at the price of free, it instantly hops onto my list of games to get. Gonna be the 5th free game I've got off Steam.

    EDIT: Just watched the trailer. Left 4 Smash TV much?

    On my computer, where else?
    I like how it says "Pre-purchase Alien Swarm on Steam" , then when you go to the link, it says
    "Available free of charge,"

    Anyways, can't wait for the game to come out, more free games for me [​IMG]

    I remember playing this when I had UT2K4. I also remember dying a lot. It's quite a surprise that it's free and that they were hired by Valve, though they do that quite a lot don't they? Can't wait to play it, as I like to Co-Op with the family and friends. The tile based map maker also sounds nice.

    Looks like my kind of game!

    I'll definitely be downloading and playing the crap out of this when it's available on Monday.

    Are we able to preload it?

    Edit: Looking at the trailer, it looks a lot like smash tv, so I will be downloading this.

    I'll give it a try but I'll probably not do to good at it.
    I see that this comes with the Source SDK. Does that mean people can use this to play Source mods?

    Nope, someone at Valve said that it's a seperate SDK, so it's not compatible with mods if they're not made with that SDK.

    I just started using Steam and, yeah, this game looks awesome! :0
    BTW, are there any other (decent) games free of charge on Steam? I saw something like Coil and Space Wars but they are nothing more than bad Flash Games ported to Steam. :\
