Q: I have seen a lot screens, but where is videos ?
A: As some features are still in beta stage, we will make some videos as soon it will possible.
Q: Damn, i don't wanna download Alien Swarm to play mods so how to solve this situation ?
A: Well, at the first i can say that Source 2010 (Alien Swarm) have A LOT of new graphical features
and secondly it is a free game, it means no more needs to buy and install a HL2 EP2 and Source SDK Base 2007 to play our mod, just install Alien Swarm and Arctic Adventure and play :D

Yes! It always falls down to the "You try doing it" defence...
The most incorrect, pointless and useless defence in the world, invented by idiots who think they can freely tell everybody there opinion, but they themselves are flawless and make everything perfect.

Listen to me and listen good:
Think about a game that sucks and you hated playing with it. You got it? How dare you say it sucks?! Are you a game developer?! Do you work for that company?! NO?! Then stop trying to tell us that game sucks! You have no right to do so!

What's that? You got poisoned by the staff in a restaurant? You got minutes before you die? How dare you say it is the worst restaurant in the world and there food sucks?! Are you a chef? Have you ever tried making that food they served you? No? Then don't complain! You have no right to do it!

You obviously have no qualification to tell that food or game that you have before you sucks so please shut up, go away and never come back because we are perfect! We make perfect things in perfect ways. It is your fault you got poisoned by the food we made.

... and this concludes why this defence sucks balls, although there is a high chance I needlessly wasted my time writing this because whiny teenagers are not people who would listen to other people's opinion because they are "oh so perfect".

The original comment was an ignorant rude comment.

The fact that your here to rush to the defense of that comment shows your an self important ***. Yes, MAKE YOUR OWN MOD IF YOU HATE THIS MOD. If you took the time to first, find this mod, then download it, play it, return, and then post something rude, you are a miserable human being. These guys take out their time to provide us with a free content and a free service where they have to spend THIER time and THEIR money to bring us this mod. They didnt put a gun to anyones head and demand we play it, and like your ignorant poisoned restaurant example they dont charge a damn dime for this mod which makes a HUGE difference.

Yes, you hate this mod, make your own. You think you can do better?

That is what people mean when they use that "defense". Also its not a defense, its god damn common sense.Plus if you dislike a mod with such intensity you HAVE to say something productive, Like changes for this level, i noticed glitches/bugs etc., Things id like to see in your next update!

Get the picture? or am I already deemed an incompetent teenager?

I have realized that comment is from a troll running amok (a bit later), ironically it's still correct.

And it's not called common sense. It's called irrelevant conclusion combined with guilt by association. This mod is free, and free thing are sometimes good, but that does not conclude that all free things (and mods) are good. Did you know this was called Half-life 2 Episode 3 before the admins/moderators forced it to renaming? I'm 100% sure that when Valve released there SDK they didn't want people to do there own games instead of them.

I have no problem with people continuing Some(!) storylines or making fan made content/mods for games that (and this is important) sure as hell won't get continued by there original developers. Even Valve put that Awakening mod on steam at one point which had Adrian Shephard as the protagonist, and that wasn't a high quality mod either...
But please, don't tell me that people are so desperate that they can't come up with original ideas anymore. If I would start making a "Human error 2" mod or "1187 - the second chapter" everyone would go apeshit, right? A total ripoff of Episode 3? Yeah, sure, no problem with that.

And that is why I'm really bashing this mod. Not because it has some bad mapping or bad models. It's because it's not original, it has no respect for Valve and no respect for Half-life whatsoever, free or not free. I can say that due to my opinion, not because I'm a "self important ***" as you slandered me.
I have my right to speak/write as well Cybertrance.
The only constructive thing I can say about this mod is: "Stop developing this, you are wasting your time."

On a different note: I don't make own games because I don't have time for them. I wish as hell I would, but it's not the case.

But you know what. You are right in one thing. I really shouldn't bother with this. If some of these deeply impatient and depressed people are so looking forward to this "Run-and-gun, no puzzle, no real Half-life drama, no real voice acting." mod with it's genius "Going back to (nuked to dust) Black-mesa" storyline on the Episode two engine (where the real Episode 3 will be on the new one, I guarantee) then who the hell am I to stop you from enjoying it. I'm going to just wait for something that makes sense, like the Black Mesa mod.

As for this... Well... I really, REALLY hope Valve will be faster to come out with the next episode/Half-life 3 then this... mess/bad excuse for a mod.

Because obviously a "go-and-shoot with reskins" fps, with no new content, puzzles, voice acting whatsoever, made by a one-person-only team is much better than ANYTHING Valve can ever come up with.
How could we be such fools to wait for a quality game...
