    Technically my buddy bought NS2-SE for me because he wanted someone to play in the Alpha with him, BUT I'm the one that pointed him to NS2 in the first place because I was wanting to play it so badly for years and plan on paying him back HAHA.

    We both got the Special Edition because we both used to play NS1 and loved it for so many reasons, that combined with the fact that you guys built your own engine for the game this time, and judging from the videos I've seen you guys really deserve 40 bucks from each of us instead of just 20!

    I only ask one thing in return, I would LOVE to see a Linux port because A. Steam will be on Linux soon B. I'm so sick of windows C. I want the Linux gaming community grow and NS2 would be a great game to do so.

    Can't wait to start Alpha tomorrow see you guys there!

    I picked up the Special Edition a few days ago. I didn't mean to wait so long to get it, it had just totally slipped my mind and I'm glad I remembered before the deadline. I can honestly say I grabbed the SE to give some extra support to the developers, the black armor is just a bonus. I mean it's great looking armor and all, but I can't imagine it's going to be all that exclusive, as I assume a pretty good amount of people grabbed the SE as well. Then again, once the game hits Steam and explodes with players (as I know it will) it might be a cool little thing to have.

    I purchased the SE because I love NS and need to get it back into my system as quickly as possible. I fell out with NS1 after computer changes so to hear that NS2 was on the way was a trip.

    Of course you will, this was the exact point of the SE.

    Now let's hope we won't wait till 26th july 11.59pm before we can start to play :)

    How could I not buy the special edition?!! I have so many fond memories of the original, fades against heavy armours, mass migrations, vent crawling, being knifed as an Onos etc. Ah the good ol' days, met so many decent people and had hundreds of hours of fun. The original was so awesome that in a matter of days, it finally broke down my id zealotry bringing me all the wonders of Half-Life.

    Edit: Wow, I can't believe I joined over two years ago and never posted anything.

    Bought it on saturday when a friend notified me the alpha was this close.

    Only regret is we don't get a purple gorge skin instead. Didn't mind paying for the SE since I previously paid jack all for years of NS1 goodness.

    Bought the SE edition to get access to the Alpha's & Beta's.
    It's always nice to be there from the beginning, played NS1 yeaaars ago.
  • bruno.tvrsbruno.tvrs Join Date: 2010-07-26 Member: 72851Members
    Yay! Bought it a couple of hours ago, still 25th!
    I didn't really have the money and was saying to myself "I won't. I'll wait until beta comes out or something". But I couldn't resist! A shame I *really* didn't have the money for SE and now I'll have to wait until beta. Oh, well... Guess I deserve that!
    NS1 probably the best/most fun FPS I've ever played!

    Bought NS2 a few months ago, just decided to join the forums and by looking how you guys have 03ers I must be the scum of the earth 10'ers.

    Anyways when I saw that the game was going to be released at 9:00 I didn't read whether AM or PM so I assumed AM and I woke up extra early today to find out it's PM.
  • RicashiRicashi Join Date: 2010-07-26 Member: 72868Members
    Picked the SE last night. I am an orignal 1.0x player who quit playing about 4 years ago.
    Was waiting for an opportunity to play an alpha/beta before pre-ordering. With the release only a few hours away, I can say it is very exciting.

    English is not my native language, and maybe I'm too dumb, I don't know, but... What are "03ers" and "10'ers"? O.o

    I think he's referring to the date in which people registered on the forums.

  • FreyarFreyar Join Date: 2005-01-13 Member: 35377Members
    Bought SE at the last minute. Glad I got in, I was holding out till it would be on Steam, I didn't seem to get the note that that had changed apparently. Oh well, at least UW got paid right? :P
  • SM0k3SM0k3 Join Date: 2010-07-26 Member: 72938Members
    I bought it because I couldn't let you guys have all the fun. Oh and all black armor is sexy....that's the other reason. ;)
  • Br|mstoneBr|mstone Join Date: 2010-07-25 Member: 72791Members
    I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one willing to kick in a little extra for all the good times playing a free mod. The black armor is sexy, but not worth $20 on its own. The years of playing NS1, well worth the extra. Thanks, guys.
  • SpiderfaceSpiderface Join Date: 2010-07-26 Member: 72964Members
    Just got it from a friend! Going to have insane fun with it.
  • FenrirFenrir Join Date: 2010-07-26 Member: 72967Members
    How could I not buy this after all the fun I had in NS1, plus the black armor is snazzy.

  • KyodaKyoda Join Date: 2004-10-30 Member: 32531Members
    I bought, because of Black Armor and to help Flayra and staff to improve more and more, day by day and they also need to have something to eat. ^^
  • sethasetha Join Date: 2010-07-27 Member: 73095Members
    I loved NS, so why not get NS2?

  • levelelevele Join Date: 2007-08-25 Member: 61978Members
    I bought the special edition minutes before the time limit, but I won't be able to play until I get a new pc. I'm not upset tho, I get to play real life natural selection as I seem to have picked up a bedbug infestation from staying at a hotel o we the weekend.. anybody got any tips?
  • JakkarJakkar Join Date: 2006-12-02 Member: 58826Members
    Wanted NS2, had no money (literally, actually, no money at all, destitute and living on the kindness of family at the time), entered contest, won.

    Came here. Hugged Flayra's leg for a while, and intend to make up for my lack of material donation by doing all the Alpha testing and GetSatisfied feedback I can manage.
