    Re: Natural Selection 2 Free weekend on steam!

    NS2 combines FPS and RTS. It's a great show of gameplay diversity.

    If you don't give this game two or three sessions this weekend, I -- no kidding -- feel like I've done you a disservice by not persuading you to do so.

    The game is published by Unknown Worlds Entertainment, who've released this trailer for the weekend:

    Natural Selection 2 Free Weekend (quick trailer; youtube.com)

    That trailer does a good job of capturing the game's adrenaline and pace. It's very fast, and teamwork is absolutely essential. I play it happily on my 2007 box (SSD, Q6600, 8800GTX, 8GB RAM).

    If you like the feeling you get when you and your teammates accomplish something that never would have been possible without listening, feedback, collective decision making, and pushed determination marinated in fear and uncertainty, then you should play this game. If you like playing it with really nice people, you should play it here, at Tactical Gamer.

    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

        Also give us a hollar if you are new to the game. I have been busy with wedding stuff so it is hard to tell who is old TG playing a new game or new TG playing.

          It is extremely important to be an SM in NS2, as without it, you're going to quickly be displaced. I still haven't gotten a full round in on either of TG's servers.

            Thats not entirely the case. We have multiple ways of helping people stay on the server. While being a SM is obviously the most surefire way to avoid a reserved slot kick, you can also read and agree to the server rules and follow that up by signing the primer thread in the NS subforum. This will grant you a great deal of extra immunity from the slot kicker.

              I might give that a try after the free weekend is over. I actually haven't even bothered joining TG's server in about three weeks, I recall my shortest time on the server was around forty five seconds before being booted for an SM. When was the faux-reserve system set up for people who sign the document?

                It's been in effect for quite some time, months, in fact. It's a carryover from a plugin that we had on our NS1 servers many years ago.

                  I missed the free weekend. Barely checked right now. I was just here sitting "OH! Natural Selection free this weekend! Wait... only till Sunday. That's today..."
