Natural Selection 2 Beta OUT! (v If you pre order)

http://www.naturalselection2.com/buy

Anyone else interested in this? I'm about to pull the fucking trigger on this. NS was so good it pulled me away from CS and league play back in the day. I have this feeling this game could stay with me for years and I need a game like this.

Gameplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2FFviGycYE

Preordered a while back when they had a deal with the Overgrowth guys to buy them bundled.

Haven't put much attention on it since

i preordered so i could goof around in the alpha, but then my video card took a crap so i haven't been able to play. it has been interesting watching the game develop and the approach they take to funding.

give preorders early access to alpha/beta and use the money to fund production. even if it ends up being vaporware, its money well spent for all of the time i spent playing NS1

That's why I pre-ordered back in May 2009.

Anyway, it's come a long way since the first alpha. To be honest, it doesn't run so well--it looks okay graphically, but the frame rate's pretty bad on good hardware. Also, it's got that annoying mouse-lag thing going on. Hopefully this stuff can get fixed.

$35 is too high imo. I don't mind paying for it because I played the shit out of NS1, but I can't see the masses being too interested in this at that price point. I've bitched on their forums about it only to have internet white knights say "this game should be $100 for all the content you get, and i'd STILL buy it" and admins locking the thread.

So did you have to previously pre-order to get into the beta or could I get in if I pre-order now?

first 10,000 to pre-order get in, so you're alright right now.

just pre-ordered after watching a 20+ minute beta video. it looks amazing

although the video didnt explain much

what are those hovering drones the marines have?

are there new buildings as well?

do they still have the "dynamic infestation"?

The drones are build bots, AFAIK.

although its only beta, its still laggy as hell, and grenade launchers are op by far. its almost game over when the marines get them.

i cant wait until this is polished (looks a far ways away)

Need a lot of work for sure. Recent patches have really fixed a lot of gameplay issues, but the netcode needs a lot of work.

Grenade launchers were OP in NS1 as well, but they were pretty hard to use. In NS1, you had to have fades/onos to even recover from them.

God DAMMIT this game angers me even more now. These guys vastly underestimated what it takes to make a game from scratch. They are so far from being done it's not even funny. What they have right now is barely an alpha let alone a beta. RAAAAAAAAAAGE.

Dammit! And NS1 was sooo good. I wish Valve bought this IP and did NS2 in Source =/. Vaporware incoming.
