If it lives up to even a *tenth* of the awesome of the original... absolutely. Despite being merely a mod with a small, unpaid team, it was one of the greatest achievements in multi-player gaming ever seen, successfully blending RTS and FPS gameplay in unprecedented and unreplicated ways.

I actually liked that other one for Quake 2 a little more despite it being outdated. I forget the name now... It had little spider-like critters that shot webs (adaptation of the grappling hook)

Haven't played it. The only other FPS/RTS hybrid I'm aware of is the Savage series, which pales in comparison.

In NS1, however, one of the more common meta-mods was an alteration to the Gorge's web power to allow him to use it precisely as you describe.

>> No.11372546

Cut this avatar faggotry out. If you aren't posting a relevant picture, don't post any picture. This thead is a prime example of why. If you see X pictures omitted, you will be more likely to check out the thread to see some screenshots of the game. And instead you get some asshole taking pictures of himself that nobody wants to see.

You do contribute to the board sometimes, so I think your status as a tripfag is almost justified. But dumping pictures of yourself is unadulterated faggotry, and no good comes of it. Even worse, every thread you post in turns into assholes like me telling you to fuck off. You seem like a fairly reasonable person, so drop the avatar and you might notice the board get a little less shitty.

What good can possibly come of having an avatar? I ask this as a serious question. I think you can contribute to /tg/, but as of right now you are just hurting it.

I can see using it as a reaction image, but spamming reaction images sucks too. And you tend to post with images more than you post without. I don't think many people will object to the occasional reaction image, but half of the pictures in this thread are of you.

Just remember that the board isn't about you, be sparing with the reaction images, and be very very sparing in threads where people are going to expect relevant pictures. That will really cut down on the drama. I'll stop posting after this, and sage because this post obviously does not merit a bump.

I can't make a thread about Jazz music on /mu/
Does that entitle me to make one here?

>> No.11375340

>>11375307
sure, we could discuss jazz music's in influencing different campaigns where the music might enrich the gaming experience or what music you really like to wargame too. wow a jazz music thread sounds awesome...brb going to start a jazz music thread.

>> No.11375347

>>11375307
Try it and see what happens. If /tg/ wants to have a jazz thread they'll bump.

>> No.11375351

>>11375307

Absolutely.

Just don't expect a lot of informed response, or do it regularly if it's obvious no one gives a shit.

Sorry GNB but this isn't even tangentially related to /tg/

>> No.11375472

>>11375454
You are posting it in such a way that it is directly /tg/ related.
This is a video game

new here I see.

It's not bad, the game will be constantly changing; you'll see the game as it evolves from an initial idea to a fully finished product.

Stop being a bitchy little kid. This is internet; it's okay to let things slide.

Not to mention being able to give your feedback.

I wish I'd been more active early on in the development of the first. I never liked how they sort of removed the dedicated structure-placer gorge, forcing gorge players into either combat support or combined roles.

>> No.11375588

>>11375547
yeah, I agree with you, I believe they changed it because people were going gorge to res whore to go onos. what was your old id in ns1 GNB?

>> No.11375603

>>11375521
I usually do.
But because of golden neckbeard, threads that are actually /tg/ related are dying

>> No.11375650

>>11375603
wow, what do you seriously believe golden neckbeard is some sort of /tg/ deity. . .wtf man. its summer, at least i haven't seen an edition war thread today, there probably was one i might of just missed it.

various things containing the tag "imso," if I recall correctly.

I said no such thing.
I'm just saying this thread (150 posts) and the thread complaining about him (270 posts), while threads like
>>11373634
get 1 post, and die off

>> No.11375701

>>11375603

From reading that, I get the impression you somehow think he's solely responsible for this occurrence

>> No.11375715

>>11375603
You're problem is that you make Golden Neckbeard out to be a bigger deal than he actually is. This is strange given your obvious dislike of him. He has no power in /tg/; everything that is shit is other people's fault.

I know he has no power.
But if he simply had not posted, it'd be 400 posts on other friends.
Which would certainly help

This thread is about Natural Selection, not Golden Neckbeard. Inb4 "not /tg/ related" because it is. I don't know why, but it just is.

You know, it's entirely your fault (and other people like you) that GNB has received so much attention. If you would just stop being such a drama whore none of this would ever be a fucking problem.

>> No.11375793

I believe "fatty" was one moniker I used from time to time, yes.

The Vampire thread isn't relevant to my interests. I haven't played a White Wolf game in more than 10 years and have no idea what they're talking about. So, no, I'm not going to post in that thread. Others will likely do the same. I doubt a lot of people post replies to a thread solely because GNB posted to it.

I've started boardgame threads in the past and it dies off. No big deal. Post again another time to see if there's any interest with folks in a different time slot. Shit happens.

>> No.11375819

yeah, I'm pretty sure i saw you around quite a bit. the internet is a pretty small place it seems. do you remember like runaway woodchipper and impy the lerk by chance?

>> No.11375863

At this point, the only bumps are responding to sagefags.
Sagefags, can't you just learn to ignore? This would have died before 100 posts had you not provoked people.

>> No.11375872

>>11375819

I played as Crotalus and I remember both Fatty and Impy.

>> No.11375880

Neither of those ring a bell, sorry.

I bump your implied sage through suggestion of ignoring.
