Valve Announces...

Alien Swarm. Yeah, that sure got your attention.

Before you slay the messenger, at least hear me out: Valve's returned to their pastime of amalgamating mod teams, with Alien Swarm being a UT2004 mod. Basically, it's a top-down tactical shooter, and plays kinda like Diablo, I guess. This release is, however, unique for two reasons: the source code and all of the tools that were utilized to make Alien Swarm is included with the game, including the Source SDK, promising a more user-friendly modding experience for burgeoning, would-be modders.

The second reason? It's free.

Normally, I would usually not pay attention to this kinda stuff, but seeing how it's being developed by Valve, (one of the few remaining "good" developers left in the gaming industry) I probably will give it a try.

Hey, it beats having Team Fortress 2 updating every single hour; constantly.

That's nice and all but it doesn't hold my interest, UT2004 love notwithstanding. Now Valve handling a new version of Unreal Tournament - that would be music to my ears.

Gives me all the more reason to get all that TPB stuff off my machine...though I downloaded it publicly and saved it to a flash and sorted through it BEFORE it touched my machine.
