Free alien swarm! Is it a source engine game only? So do you need HL2, Left 4 Dead etc, or is it tottally free? (I have source games, but I want to play with others) It doesnt say the normal "needs half life" shenanigans
Are the EVGA codes working again?

EDIT: Actually I don't know if what I said below is accurate, sadly my home computer is currently down or i would remote in to test.

You will need a game that gives you access to the Source SDK such as HL2 - Ep1-2 - L4D1-2, sadly the free Lost Coast/HL2DM do not qualify.

Grabbed Alien Swarm, but missed out on Cryostasis. Looks like they really had a limited number of codes.

People need to change their steam region in settings. I am from the west where I was getting 40Kb/s or so to over 450Kb/s just by switching to east. Still a lot slower than what I get though, maybe another country might help but I am in no hurry to play.

Phoenix worked for me. Downloading the game. Measly 166 KB/s but that's ok - I still have way too many games in my queue.

I had to use IE to get a code, Firefox would say no code available. (Cryostasis)

I think so. I got bored on the scavenger hunt after finding 4. zzzzzzzzzz Boring. EVGA's site is full of so much trash that doesn't have any relation to their own products its pathetic!

Ok heres the Cryostasis page, that no one mentioned lol. I don't have elligible card, but if someone does, and is registered at evga, and could spare me a code, if they own the game and or don't want it, I'd appreciate it. Here's the page.

http://www.evga.com/articles/00471/

Edit: They may have been giving codes without the need for a card before, but that seems to be done now : /, as I can't find it, thats the only Cryostasis page, I can find.

Keep trying, the busy server warnings gives way after a while.

Alien Swarm is worth it, REALLY fun game with a group of friends.

I order COH TOV, COH GOLD which is supposed to include Opposing Fronts. Well they sent me links for Two TOV and Opposing Fronts. I don't even have a link for COH original. Thats pretty crappy. So I sent support a message and I'm awaiting a reply.
