Alien Swarm: Infested 
Friday, 16 January, 2009, 23:57 - >Games (PC)
Posted by ned
Alien Swarm started out as a mod for the FPS title Unreal Tournamnet 2004 but not as an FPS! This Alien Swarm mod is an overhead view tactical squad-based shooter. This game was the first non-FPS/sim game I played that I liked.

It was looking to be a dedicated game and it deserves it in my opinion!

AS:I is built upon the Source Engine from Valve and will be available as a competitively priced commercial game!

Alien Swarm: Infested is an upcoming action strategy game featuring a unique blend of co-op play and squad level tactics all in an overhead view. As a Commander in the Interstellar Armed Forces, your job is to guide your squad and successfully complete their mission against the ravages of the Swarm infestation, a threat which plagues mankind across the breadth of colonized space. it's looking to be a Half Life 2 mod

Many of you know my server hasn't had a dedicated connection for quite some time due to moving house and other interuptions. Well, it looks like I'll be setup again soon connection wise... maybe 2-3 weeks. In the meantime only certain games can be played on it online.

I'm looking forward to stress testing my server upgrade :)

Stay tuned ;p

I've decided to set up a server for the Deathmatch Pro mod for Serious Sam 2. This has some nice features both for the players and server admins. Test nights will be coming up soon.

Some things of interest for the test nights:
new maps
force everyone to be Sam server setting
modified weapons/hud/scoreboard/death messages

Unfortionately development on this mod had ceased, at least for now. It does however appear to be solid enough to play.

Any problems contact me via this blog or xfire ;]

Stay Tuned!

In case you haven't noticed I'm moving all of the forum content over to the blog. I've decided to work on the Enemy Territory section next. It's the largest one to do and I was going to tackle it last but there have been some Fritz Bot mod updates over the last few months that I'd like to have a look at. The latest update is from TomTom. He's made a waypoint pack for the map Warehouse (final) by zig-zag. Details - here.

I'll be working on the ET section in groups. More details soon!
