    I could swear we had a thread before, but search turns up nothing.
    Killing Floor Co-Op Survival Horror -


    The short version, mix Call of Duty's Zombie mode with Left 4 Dead, add in some thick cheesy English accents, and you get Killing Floor.

    Game is a lot of fun, but you all but NEED teamwork to survive anything beyond Beginner.
    In addition to the Twisted Christmas 2 event starting on the 7th, there's also a free weekend running the 8th-11th, to give the game a try.

    Would love to set up some games with TFWers (since no-one else in our Steam group plays this currently)

    double-post / bump as a reminder that the free weekend has started.
    Also, the game's on sale during that time for $4.99 (I may pick up extra gift copies, if the store page for the game would load for me)

    Downloading now, for the free weekend. I'd buy it, but I need to save my cash for Christmas gifts.
    Unless, of course, somebody wants to trade a copy of Magicka for it. (And something else worth $5, prospectively.)

    so, when are good times to try and and play?
    I think form the TF2 thread, my general schedule's known, Sun-Thurs are tricky, but Fri and Sat I'm usually in front of the computer anyway

    Well, I've got the average student's MO of 'waste time all day err day', but I'm actually a somewhat proactive student, making week nights and (very) late Sunday nights sort of difficult for me. Otherwise, weekends are completely free for me.

    Yeah, Friday and Saturday (afternoon for this particular weekend) works just fine for me. Most of Sunday works too.


    Btw, you rock Paladin. I already said as much over Steam, but I'm gonna say it again. You rock. Of course, now I have two games that will completely eat up all of my free time (not even counting Skyward Sword Hero Mode, Link's Awakening DX when I get around to getting it, the Ambassador games when they finally get released, Mighty Switch Force when that comes out... This is going to be a fun Winter Break :D ).

    Tell me about it. Between this, finishing Skyward Sword, GTA IV, Mass Effect, Dead Space and Oblivion, Winter has its hands full. Too bad I have family coming over so they won't let me rot in front of my computer.

    somehow managed to solo Evil Santa's Lair on a Normal-Long set
    think I got lucky, only saw like 3-4 Fleshpounds the whole time, one of which spawned on my pipebomb, and died instantly.

    I thought I had enough of the first Twisted Christmas Achievements that doing so would unlock the Bad Santa skin, but I'm still one shy... damn
    it's that invisible bitch again
    *guess I'll do some Hard runs and try for Eggnog anyone?
    *edit*
    Aaaad, done

    reviving this thread, since I don't believe we ever really figured a time-frame, even with 2 months to do so. Also, I swear I've seen people i the 'what are you playing?" thread say they've picked it up, so maybe we have more TFWers that play now.


    I have recently developed a small hatred of kf_offices; a.k.a. STAIRS the level.....

    I'm down for weekend games, but that usually turns into TF2 until I go to bed. Definitely won't have enough time this weekend, though.

    *double-post/thread revival*
    Game is on sale today for $2.99

    pretty sure that's the cheapest I've seen it, so if you've even THOUGHT about it, nows the time. (or, ask me nicely, I tend to be crazy with gift copies of this game)

    so, no Summer Sale yet, but we do get a 2nd Summer Slideshow
    !
    New Map (haven't tried yet)
    looks like more new guns
    and a new DLC character (although he's $4.99 for one, instead of $1.99 for a pack)
    but he's based off of Harry Enfield, so he's worth the dosh
    Harry Enfield: loadsamoney - YouTube

    and this means I finally get the Punk'd achieve and Steampunk Foster (cleared the map after last year's event, so it was still locked until now)

    And, friendly reminder, when going for headshots on Summer Husks, aim for the tank on their back, not the robot's 'face'.

    *edit* Kf-Hellride's not a bad map, could be better, but it has the right atmosphere. Just avoid being in the 'tunnel' when a round starts. Having 5-6 ZEDs spawn on both sides of you, with no options for escape is not fun.
    Only tried the new Shotty, seems like a solid side-grade.
