Co-op should be great fun :) I like these sorts of games so might mess around with the mod tools too

Don't know why the links says pre-purchase.

Alien Swarm is a game and Source SDK release from a group of talented designers at Valve who were hired from the Mod community. Available free of charge, the game thrusts players into an epic bug hunt featuring a unique blend of co-op play and squad-level tactics. With your friends, form a squad of four distinct IAF Marine classes.
Sounds good and looks like a lot of fun. Interesting to see a non first-person game coming out of Valve. It's also great to see Valve hiring modders and releasing the work they do for free.

Automated code.

For me, it's a good thing it is free. I've always been one saying I would purchase anything Valve put out. I probably would have passed on this ...

I used to play the original (UT2004) mod. It was the first non-FPS/sim game I played that I liked.

I'm definitely getting this one :)

Easily said when you get all of their games for free anyway.
