Live show: Aliens: Colonial Marines multiplayer
My big mouth + The Steam summer sale = Another round of ACM

Before you start to question my sanity, allow me to explain. When Aliens: Colonial Marines was first released, I did a live show where I slogged through the entire single-player campaign, and damn near wanted to rip my eyes from their sockets after completing it. Afterwards, I figured since I had already put myself through what I considered to be gaming hell, that I may as well showcase a bit of the mulitiplayer, before sending the game to it's fiery grave. But to my surprise, the multiplayer wasn't that bad, in fact, it was quite a bit of fun with a group of friends.
At the end of the show, I opened my big mouth, and announced that if the game was ever on sale for less than fifteen dollars on Steam, that I would pick it up purely for the multiplayer portion. Well, guess what happened? That's right, the Steam summer sale happened. So here we are, about to play a game that I had condemned to the void forever, again tonight on Mash Tactics. Feel free to join in on the action with us if you somehow managed to keep this on your hard drive for this long, or just come by and hang out as we play one of the most controversial titles of this generation over at Dtoid.TV!
QotD: Speaking of lack of self control and impulse buys, what game or games did you get during the Steam summer sale, that you would have never picked up otherwise? Setup email comments
