Kotaku Matchmaker: Alien Swarm

Aussie online gamers know that any online game is best enjoyed with, well... other Aussies. To ensure your weekend online gaming is as lag-free as possible, every Friday we'll be hosting the Kotaku Matchmaker, where you can meet new friends online!

We'll be theming each Matchmaker around a specific game, but you can check back in the archive of older titles below. And feel free to suggest a totally different game in the comments, if that's what you're planning to play this weekend.

This week it's the turn of Alien Swarm, the totally free co-op shooter from Valve Software that's best described as Left 4 Dead but top-down and full of face huggers.

All you need to do is leave your Steam ID in the comments below. Mention a bit about yourself, too, anything that'll help other players decide if you're really a good match.
