This game looks really interesting.
I bought the game a while ago, and I must say it's really fun and intresting. But my computer is pretty trash so I cant play it on high graphics
I'm actually curious about getting it now. The main thing about the first one was that you relied too heavily on your commander which tended to decide matches way too quickly. The ability to manage yourself seems like a godsend.
I fee like this game has been in development forever.
[QUOTE=MILKE;37036261]I bought the game a while ago, and I must say it's really fun and intresting. But my computer is pretty trash so I cant play it on high graphics[/QUOTE] It's still unoptomized as fuck at this stage, it is much better than it used to be however.
I might have to reinstall this. Looking really good now, it was properly buggy when I first played it
looks cool, might buy it. Is it on steam?
[QUOTE=Vasili;37036959]looks cool, might buy it. Is it on steam?[/QUOTE] Not now, but it will be.
[QUOTE=Vasili;37036959]looks cool, might buy it. Is it on steam?[/QUOTE] not yet you should buy it now so you don't have to pay full price iirc
[QUOTE=Blueplastic;37036970]Not now, but it will be.[/QUOTE] It is, kind of. You pre-order off their site which then activates on Steam.
[QUOTE=Vasili;37036959]looks cool, might buy it. Is it on steam?[/QUOTE] You preorder it and it gives you a key to activate the beta on steam, and then when it releases you get the full game on steam as well. It isn't listed on steam stores though.
I got this with Overgrowth a couple years back. Totally worth it.
Whats with the dumbs?
[QUOTE=Niklas;37037487]Whats with the dumbs?[/QUOTE] People don't like TotalBiscuit for varying reasons. Honestly, I think his videos are nice, but people have opinions etc etc.
cool I preordered it
sometimes his voice is annoying
[QUOTE=KlaseR;37038155]sometimes his voice is annoying[/QUOTE] its a fake accent he puts on for views
[quote] "Pre-orders of @NS2 are going crazy today! @totalbiscuit video has been up all of 2 hours and we're already at 300% normal!" wow amazing to see how much total biscuit can* help a game <3 mshadow1994 21 minutes ago [quote]More importantly than sales, he has really lifted morale here in the office and given us* a jolt of energy. We are very grateful. unknownworlds in reply to mshadow1994[/quote][/quote]That's awesome!
It really deserves more attention
I would buy it but I am low on money and my laptop won't run the game in a million years. [editline]1st August 2012[/editline] If my computer would run it I would definitely buy it though. It looks very good.
Natural Selection 2 is a really great game, but communication between your team is needed way more than your average team based game. Your commander needs to know what's going on from your POV as much as you need to know what's going on in his. Really immersive and intense when you get a good team and the game last an hour and 20 minutes. Everybody is so focused and competitive by then, it's like everything is at stake :v:

If your commander didn't rush turrets the marines were usually fucked a minute into the game cause the aliens would always skulk rush.
[QUOTE=Kiq;37037506]People don't like TotalBiscuit for varying reasons. Honestly, I think his videos are nice, but people have opinions etc etc.[/QUOTE] People around here used to love his videos, but I think they've grown tired of him; I have. The problem with him is that sometime his acting is was too forced. I love his videos where he sits down and does an honest play through with the devs. This video was ridiculously informative and provided clear clips of the gameplay. It also has some nice insight with the devs.
This is mindbogglingly similar to Tremulous(a Quake 3 mod). [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tremulous[/url] Im not sure if the developers of NS2 took inspiration or something from it but you could call it a sequel to Tremulous. Nevertheless I'm looking forward to this.
Sales up 800% and still climbing. Amazing what YouTube can do. [URL="https://twitter.com/NS2/status/230720726880116736"]Source.[/URL]

And so Tremulous is mind-bogglingly similar to Natural Selection
And NS1 is a Gloom or whatever Rip Off. Seriously, WHO the fuck really cares who did Rts/Fps first?
