News Comments > Natural Selection 2 Patch Next Week
6. Re: Natural Selection 2 Patch Next Week Sep 14, 2013, 20:20 bigspender
 
nice bunch of guys trying to do the right thing for gaming, but they've missed their chance several times since 7 years ago.... and they consistently focus on the wrong areas.

Since release they've made some really bad gameplay choices, some really important features missing for up to 3+ months, performance goes from bad to worse to great to horrible in every other patch.

And what this boils down to is having a decent amount of sales but a player population that sticks around for about week.

Oh yeah and this FREE DLC that apparently cost them $550000? A lot of teams could have made a couple entire new games for that.

I had high hopes for this game once, but I think they are beating a dead horse now.

They'd almost be better off using this engine to make a full sequel and start things the right way off this time.

Much as everyone loves the Huey it just isn't all that exciting in non-combat environment, particularly a non Nam environment to be specific.

You can always fly DCS Black Shark......

The performance was abysmal

Primary reason I stopped playing after only a few weeks. You CANNOT suffer framerate issues in a game this focused on precision aiming.

So this isn't just because the new expansion just released? Nmhhh.... anyway, for a First Impression this one was an epic fail. For me the non working Tutorial was worse, because the game seems to have become even more opaque for a new player.
No, performance was bad for a while, then it got better a few patches ago, then literally the day before this free weekend they released this new patch which DESTROYED performance. It's stupid and they're losing hundreds if not thousands of sales because of it. It's really sad. I love the game and I want it to succeed but they're shooting themselves in the foot and I don't know why.

yeah i take my last comment back, i gave it go but the performance is currently terrible.

still feels like you are moving in mud its awful.

these are good guys and they made a good effort. but they haven't made a good game. sorry folks


Its probably not as good as NS1, but sure is a lot prettier
With the last few updates the frame rate / performance is through the roof, nearly as good as Source games.

Plus if you pick it up at 75% off, then you're doing pretty well. Even if you only play it for a weekend, at that price its cheaper than seeing a movie.

Going into Battlefield 4 two years or so ago, we first explored a concept that we internally dubbed "Timeline"

We'll thanks for planning BF4 before BF3 was even released.

Right, Microsoft will want to allow continue the support of Linux and OSX gaming.
Right, Microsoft will want to allow continue of existence of a platform which they do not control when they invested $billions into xbox

You 2 are nearsighted idiots or trolls.

Go play consoles and stop coming to bluesnews!

Linux and OSX lol - why would I go to a pizza shop to buy a lawn mower?

EDIT : what I came here to say - I'M SO HAPPY IF GFWL will be Games for Windows DEAD! w00t. even at the expense of possibly never being able to play any old game again its worth the sacrifice of not tarnishing new games with it!

there are so many moba's coming out recently that I'm surprised there isn't a moba where the characters are devs of mobas fighting each other to release a moba.

MOBA.

" will feature all the trademark elements that are part of a Dead Island experience."

Terrible animations, repetitive unimaginative grinding gameplay, general low quality feel...?

Dead Island was OK in 4 player coop for a few hours, but it got stale really fast.

I was pleasantly surprised. I am a huge Castlevania fan and never bothered with any of the 3D ones because they are generally shit but this was well done.

Still waiting for a proper 2D sequel to Dawn of Sorrow.


you've got to be referring to the graphics, because the controls for this game are utter shit. This game didn't last but 5 mins on my pc until I removed it.

This game screams console port, and demands a controller to even play it.

A shame too, Patrick Stewarts narrating was kewl. but game play wise what a piece of shit.
its a beat em up - your ass must be crazy if you aren't using a controller

Agreed. But then I'd go further and say you must be crazy to play a console game on a PC and use a controller too. Unless you don't have a console, of course, and you really wanna play the game in question.

ARPG is probably my number one genre, and Torchlight 2 just doesn't have a hook. The entire game is well put together, but nothing is fresh or interesting. It's a snoozefest.
