Looks like a lot fun:

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 16 2010 8:06 PM EDT

I'll be playing on Monday...

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 16 2010 8:15 PM EDT

We should try and get a CB group going!

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 July 16 2010 8:22 PM EDT

I'm down

spydah July 16 2010 9:00 PM EDT

Hey, my cousin is in that!

All over it.


FailBoat[SG] July 16 2010 10:33 PM EDT

I'll be getting it when it comes out.

sebidach [The Forgehood] July 17 2010 1:48 AM EDT

Cool! A 3D incarnation of that zombie flash games. Now if my internet connection would be stable for more than 1h I'd be playing it.

AdminShade July 17 2010 5:33 AM EDT

looks cool!

TheShazbot July 17 2010 6:02 AM EDT

What's the cost, ya know?

FailBoat[SG] July 17 2010 6:28 AM EDT

Coulda sworn it said it was, well, free.

TheShazbot July 17 2010 6:40 AM EDT

Oh, nice. Guess I need to learn to read.

FailBoat[SG] July 17 2010 6:45 AM EDT

It said it in big text in the video too... <.<

BadFish July 17 2010 3:28 PM EDT

looks sweet. i'll be picking it up but it's anyone's guess if I can actually play it... my computer is moderately powerful but as it's a laptop the video card never lets me quite play the games the computer could otherwise run just fine.

Phoenix [The Forgehood] July 17 2010 4:10 PM EDT

guess I'll be getting it too. :3

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 19 2010 7:22 AM EDT

"This game will unlock in approximately 8 hours"

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 19 2010 3:56 PM EDT

1 hour left! Feel free to add me on Steam, fellas. My name's phonsc.

{cb1}dyno July 19 2010 4:06 PM EDT

My steam name is dynomite_ - do we have a carnage blender steam group? If not I can make one... may make it easier for everyone to find each other.

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 July 19 2010 4:16 PM EDT

steam name: xannihilusx

Dyno: group it up!

Zippy July 19 2010 4:20 PM EDT

Steam name: Zippy
Probably take me a while to dl though. Invite to the cb group if you made one. Thanks

{cb1}dyno July 19 2010 4:47 PM EDT

Group is "Carnage Blender!" - invite only, but send me a steam friend request (dynomite_) and i'll invite you right away!

Game is available for download, I'll be free at 11 est to play tonight, as well as tomorrow morning/afternoon.

ScrObot July 19 2010 5:03 PM EDT

What was wrong with Verifex's existing Carnage Blender group? (=

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 19 2010 5:07 PM EDT

It's more awesome than Slayer

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 19 2010 5:18 PM EDT

Yeah, you should join my CB group if you want to team up online. We have a few members already. Or you can make your own group, if you're a control freak! ;)

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 19 2010 5:21 PM EDT

Here's my group:

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 19 2010 5:23 PM EDT

Or join them both!

AdminShade July 19 2010 6:04 PM EDT

Tried downloading but server is too busy. Will download soon.

Also joined carnageblender group :)

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 19 2010 8:08 PM EDT

This game is unspeakably fun.

Demigod July 19 2010 8:10 PM EDT

Spoke Marlfox

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 19 2010 9:01 PM EDT

mmm M11x

"Yeah, you should join my CB group if you want to team up online. We have a few members already. Or you can make your own group, if you're a control freak! ;)"

I'd prefer to collaborate - didn't get an invite to the cool kid group ;(

FailBoat[SG] July 20 2010 1:27 AM EDT

Steam Name: SilvaGaidin

I know, original right?

AdminShade July 20 2010 1:39 AM EDT

downloading - ETA 15 minutes.

Lochnivar July 20 2010 1:44 AM EDT

50k says you can't guess what my steam name is....

shooting stuff is fun

FailBoat[SG] July 20 2010 1:52 AM EDT

This game is surprisingly fun.

{cb1}dyno July 20 2010 2:16 PM EDT

Anyone up for gettin a group to play tonight? Did the off-line singleplayer this morning and will need some repetition to get the hang of it :p Post times you'd be interested in playin and let's see what we can put together!

(Sidenote: Joined your group verifex, can you give access to regular members to post comments? Would make it easier to coordinate playing times so we don't have to post here every time).

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 20 2010 2:21 PM EDT

I thought I did that already, I'll make sure that works.

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] July 20 2010 2:23 PM EDT

Dyno, put you as an officer, also let people comment and stuff! :)

AdminShade July 20 2010 3:10 PM EDT

did the training few hours ago, might be up for a game tomorrow :)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 July 20 2010 4:37 PM EDT

Message me on Steam if you want to play, I usually have a group of 2 or 3 and need a couple to fill it out.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] July 20 2010 5:55 PM EDT

Just DLed, not played yet. Steam name is Talhearn

zev July 20 2010 5:58 PM EDT

I've finished downloading it but haven't played yet. At work, so perhaps tonight.

AdminShade July 21 2010 11:58 AM EDT

trying to connect now

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 July 21 2010 11:59 AM EDT

What is your steam name Shade? I'll play a couple rounds with ya.

AdminShade July 21 2010 12:04 PM EDT

if you mean profile name then it's Shade.

for some reason I can't add any friends... ?

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 July 21 2010 12:05 PM EDT

I sent you a message through the CB group

AdminShade July 21 2010 12:06 PM EDT

How can I read it?

FailBoat[SG] July 21 2010 12:57 PM EDT

Don't worry Shade, I have no clue what I'm doing on Steam either.

AdminShade July 21 2010 2:21 PM EDT

That was a fun session, let me know through cm when someone plays again :)

Marlfox [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 21 2010 8:21 PM EDT

Yep, it was.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] July 22 2010 12:26 AM EDT

"PCGamer's website provided a video to play Valve's free game, Alien Swarm in First Person. First you have to enable developer console by going to OptionsKeyboardEnable Developer Console. Then hit the ~ to show the console. Type in the below commands to enable First Person perspective!

asw_hide_marine 1
asw_controls 0

I joined the CB group as, you guessed it, smallpau1. Im up for playing anytime, just message me through steam if you're on, If Im on, Ill msg you back right away with whether or not I can play, =)

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 22 2010 12:35 AM EDT

Tried that out last night... ended up turning off show marine since I couldn't see a thing. Did you find any online servers that would actually allow it?

AdminShade July 22 2010 12:48 PM EDT

I cannot seem to be able to join a public game, why? :(

AdminQBnovice [Cult of the Valaraukar] July 22 2010 1:56 PM EDT

Did you switch to first person view?

AdminShade July 22 2010 1:59 PM EDT

No, I've been able to join a few games now.
Must have been games I tried to join with many people trying to join them?

Demigod July 22 2010 2:59 PM EDT

Maybe the game doesn't like Holland.

BadFish July 22 2010 3:48 PM EDT

I'm having Shade's problem right now, gets stuck at establishing connection to games, but I was playing just before. Does anyone know if I can have my own friends list and stuff without buying anything off steam? I'd love to support them but I don't have the money to spend on video games and I wanna play some AS with some CBers.

{cb1}dyno July 22 2010 3:51 PM EDT

Did you need a purchased game for a steam friends list? If so that's news to me (I have CS:Source though, so perhaps that's why I never knew).

AdminShade July 22 2010 4:03 PM EDT

Yes, I need a purchased game for those friends options and such...
