    Alien Swarm looks pretty interesting, and I love top-down shooters, co-op moreso.

    I would love to play with you guys.

    33%, good job I already live here. Some of those questions seemed a bit silly, like population numbers.

    It's complete shit and if anything like that ever became official I'd sit down every MP and make them do it and then punch them right in the face if they got less than 80%

    I spent 4 minutes and got 46%. And I usually consider myself fairly well-educated about politics and history

    BB, aren't you studying something like politics and economics? I am not surprised you got that score.

    It's a demo of the citizenship test they're considering implementing

    Try it without asking the 'net for the answers and tell me what you score

    Seriously? That quiz is a nightmare. Or rather, I can't see how those questions could be answered by someone not living in Britain without studying for them beforehand.

    59% - I can not live in Britain. Oh course, most of that was just guessing/ based on what I know of Canadian politics.

    Mm, mm, Mexican Town is just about the only redeeming feature of Detroit, Michigan.

    Anyway, if you're having trouble getting the game to download, go to Files> Settings> Download + Cloud and change your location to a non-English speaking country (because they're probably not as interested in this game) to start the DL and then change it back so your speed doesn't suffer.

    Thanks to Orik for that tip; didn't even know that was an option. Did they add that in with the new UI?

    Crossposting from the G&T L4D thread, because I know this could help some SE folks who I'd heard complain about "invisible walls" before:

    For those of you playing on lowered-powered PCs, you really should turn your effects setting under video options up to medium if you want to actually see where you are. For comparison, here's the roof of the Burger Tank in Hard Rain maps 1/5 with the effects set at medium:

    amkqe.jpg

    and the same spot with effects on low:

    U1VXp.jpg

    Yes, it really is that bad. And that second shot still has shadows enabled - with other graphics settings at minimum, you won't see any indication that those vent units are there at all.

    After a cuople of days with alien swarm, I gotta say it's pretty fun.

    The class and item set up is interesting. I usually stick to a single combination, nearly to a fault, but I keep trying out new things and it's so much fun.

    I hope they release a new campaign soon.

    Wow, whose bright idea was it to have geometry tied to the effects setting? How is a vent an effect?

    Reminds me a little of GTAIV

    Way to prioritise, game

    You just render that hooker and hilarious bilboard and keep that gigantic concrete pillar invisible until two seconds after I've crashed into it
