The Natural Selection 2 Thread, Part 1

So it came to my attention that Natural Selection 2, a game that I thought was abandonware up until now, will be released by the end of October. I was a big fan of the Natural Selection mod for Half Life but was somewhat disappointed at how relatively little it was populated. I was also disappointed because I suck. And now that this product will be a standalone thing for 25$, I’m even more concerned that the community will be quite small. Hopefully somebody out on SRK has also dug this game and can validate my opinion that it rocks.
