“The Gordon Freeman Song”


Every Friday (well, I now tend to release Roundups around Sunday, because I’m not happy with the amount of articles or something), we have our top secret AI enter the internet and start searching for more stuff to write about. Because we are pretty lazy.

This AI is so secret and so astoundingly idiotic that I usually erase it from my memory, well, until Pinky places post-it notes on my desk each Friday saying “START UP AI”. I still don’t remember its name, though. Durandal, was it? Or was it AM? Or AC? It probably wasn’t V’Ger, and certainly not CABAL.

Oh, but today it finally found something.

The Alien Swarm 2010 Community Mappack


Alien Swarm is a great game, make no mistake.

The problem is that it has just one official campaign, which won’t last you any more than 1-2 hours.

Many community mapmakers have created community campaigns and maps, but sadly, the general playerbase doesn’t want to download these from an external site, for whatever reason.

It’s a shame, as some of these campaigns are really, really great.

However, some folks in the AS community have put together a massive 2010 community mappack, containing the best maps and campaigns of the entire year.
