    Installed and had fun with the practice mission. Hate conserving the ammo though but thats just me.

    Called a friend and told him about this freebie. His answer? "I'll warez it". Meh...

    Yeah, ammo conservation is a little teh sux, but it's not too bad if you choose a weapon carefully. Obviously the Autogun and various others aren't the best for ammo saving, but if you have a look at how much ammo each one has, you'll find a balance. I never run out of the shotgun ammo when I use that as a primary, but it is a little difficult to use when you get swarmed.
    There's always one.
    Added, I'm "[xkcd] sleepygamer", and I'm more of a Special Weapons guy (I.. am heavy weapons guy... and THIS... is my weapon...) so we should get along well in game. :D

    Hey guys, I have been trying to find a decent game for the last 20 minutes, and everyone I play with is just ****. Anyone fancy a game now? Add me (Skiddywinks) if you are up for it. Even if not now, I just need some decent players on my friends list!

    I hate these fixed camera angle games... can you set it to rotate the camera with the mouse? If not, I find these games unplayable. It was the same with the new Alien Breed. I just found that completely unplayable.

    There is no need, really.
    After 15-20 minutes it no longer causes any confusion.

    If anyone is online tonight, I'm going to be up for a few hours of Alien Swarm, as work has pulled me away the last few days, if anyone is interested.

    Seriously, I tried for hours with Alien Breed... I just can't play them. I hate them.
