    You're all a bunch of deranged nutters, and I wouldn't have it any other way. <3

            Once the infestation reaches the Command Chair, the process begins. One Gorge enters the chair to provide the necessary height. Another climbs on its shoulders to access the controls.

            A Gorge Lab is quickly established, staffed by microscopic Gorges who work tirelessly to unlock the secrets of Frontiersman Technology, stopping only to change their lab coats when they become dirtied. Once the research progresses to a certain point, the Gorgecom gives the order. Nanites are called into service.

            The armature forms. A chosen Gorge, tested many times in the field of battle, enters the machine.

            Servos whir; miniguns spin up in diagnostics; an Exogorge is born.

    Negative health on a lerk kinda makes sense. Damn things are made of pure evil.

    I liked the red screen of the lerk it looked kinda cool like it's got a berserk buff! Was that caused by the same thing that does the muted sound and reddish screen when near death - just going crazy because of the negative health?

    The more you shoot it, the more (negative) health it gets. The only option is to taunt it to death.

    Are you basing that estimation on that playtester video? All that footage was taken a while ago, in patch builds from the late 170s to the early 180's, so all those bugs have already been fixed several patches ago.

    Does anyone know what that first song is? The one before yakety sax. I tried looking it up but I couldn't find anything at all. Thanks for any info.

    Well next time any of you developers happen to be in communication with Obraxis would you please ask him for me? It's the first song. The one before the song played on the show "Close-Up Animals with a Wide Angle Lens Wearing Hats." I know it is a trivial request and it has nothing to do with NS2, but I need to have that song. The music is magical and her voice is enchanting... but 35 seconds of it is not enough for my purposes. It shouldn't take too much of your time to read this post and ask Obraxis whenever the chance comes up. Thanks once again!

    Oh btw, I know it is lame these are my only posts, but I have been keeping up with everything since day 1 and I love everything about this game (except the performance playability... I'm patient, it's getting there). So yeah, just wanted to say keep up the amazing work! Man I hope this thread isn't already dead... Look new comment...

    I'll try and slap em in the direction of this thread :D

    Hey guys, glad you liked the movie :-) The first song is by Vikki Carr, Album - 'Intimate excitement' (1967) Track: 03 - Toys. Thanks for all the positive feedback!

    If NS2 fails, follow my Nuke From Orbit Guide.
