    Alien Swarm - Free Steam Game = Awesome!

    Just downloaded this freebie from Steam, awesome little game, if quite difficult!

    Reminds me very much of Alien Breed on the Amiga, but the graphics are lovely and the gameplay quite well done.

    Apparently it was a community effort.

    Worth checking out if you have a Steam Account.

    I've been on Steam for a while, and just discovered how deep IL2 is. Awesome bargain for $10. Luv me some freebies, though.

    Also, Plants vs. Zombies is silly great fun!

    I downloaded it because BeeVee reminded me that it was available. Haven't opened it yet, still getting into Borderlands on OnLive.

    Downloaded and gave it a quick blast earlier. Much fun indeed.

    Didn't work on my ancient home computer. It's got an FX5600 or so.

    Played this the other day -- great game (and FREE!) but there's some getting used to, for me, on the controls. I kinda wish it was more of an isometric view that could spin around a bit.

    I know what you mean, when it gets messy I lose my cursor in the action and end up shooting walls!
