    First; Where can i buy NS2?
    Second; Is it at-all possible to use the retail version of Half-Life with steam so that i don't have to spend $10 for a game i already own in order to play NS1?
    Third; Hi i'm Johnny :) i heard about this game and i descided to go look for it right on the day of the alpha release!

    looking forward to playing it.

    You can put your Half-Life retail CD key into Steam to get Half-Life from Steam.

    Used to play this years ago, stopped playing when life started getting busy with university. I got nostalgic for the good old days while trading war stories with friends, thought I'd give it another bash.

    Very new to Natural Selection and I'm a complete noob. Found out about it from some friends and am loving the concept.
    I have pre ordered NS2, but am still learning the ropes through the original NS (when the servers are full).
    Hey all! Can't wait for the full release.
    I used to be addicted to soap, but I'm clean now.

    Hello NS,
    I'm Amber, an army wife. Just recently had a daughter also. :)
    I'm from Wisconsin and I live in Washington now.
    I've played natural selection before when I was 12-13, I enjoyed playing it.
    It's been awhile since I've had game play on the computer and just now starting back up. :D
    Anymore questions just ask!

    My name is Thibaut, I'm 25 and I come from Lille in France.
    I am very happy to be here today, I hope to make a place in the community. Sorry for my English which must be rotten. I attended today with my acquisition of a beta and I already met a lot of concern (my computer is not really new), but before I complain, I will try to find information about my problems .
    To meet the rules I discovered Natural Selection there for some time now, I played the first time when he was not on Steam. I really hope the deceloppement goes well, and wishes good luck to all the main actor of this beautiful experience.

    Hi I am new to Natural Selection 2 though I have watched nearly every video and I am trying to preorder the game with my $50 visa debit gift card so I can jump into the game but everytime I try to actually buy it the site comes back saying they cant verify the card and I was wondering if there was a way to use the debit card to purchase it another way if i could call the actual company or something along those lines. Any help would be appreciated as I really want to join in on all the fun of this game!!!

    I am sad.Clown. I'm not usually sad that often to warrant the use of it in my name, but I thought it sounds nice. Plus, it's a joke from Rocko's Modern Life.

    I heard about NS a long time ago, I never played it myself but I had a friend who was very fond of it. After getting quite tired of TF2 I started to look around for a new game to play and I remembered hearing about there being a NSII beta. So, I pre-ordered. I played my first game last night and had tons of fun. Today I'll be reading the wiki and all the info I can. I look forward to seeing the completion of this project.

    Guys this the the NS1 forum, for the old half-life mod.

    If you click Unknown Worlds Forums, it takes you to the root forums. The top forums are for Natural Selection 2.

    Hi guys :D name's Rawbone_saw, thought I'd make an account on the fourms while the mod downloads.

    I've been into PC gaming for a while, running on a refurbished laptop, so I'm always looking for something with low specs and an awesome community :D I came across some Natural Selection II trailers and figured the first one was worth looking into!

    I'm into lots of stuff! I love to gawk at the natural world, and scifi is a big part of my media interests, so natural selection seems like an ideal game to me. I also dabble in some TF2, Killingfloor, and Guild Wars from time to time.

    You'll probably see me hopelessly flailing around, desperately trying to adapt to a new gaming environment on a server near you! Be sure to never give me an easy time, I relish a challenge.

    And I'm not too hip on mods so I'll probably be combing the FAQs religiously.

    Glad to be here, catch ya later!

    Who are you?

    Where are you from?
    Central Florida

    How did you learn about Natural Selection?
    I found it along time ago looking for hl mods that were free. I played it a lot like 6-7 years ago then forgot about it. Found it again along with natural selection 2 and wanted to see if people still play it.

    If you guys have scheduled matches please forward me a link to a thread or something.

    I'm Giftand. From South Africa. I found out about NS a few years back but could never actually play it as South Africa comes with a mouth full of lag. Got decent net now though so I cant wait to finally give it a go again. I expect youl see me around and find yourself shouting NOOB! at me. :D

    Welcome guys. NS1 doesn't get too much attention anymore, but there's still a few players around on the servers. Enjoy!

    Hello! I am Haruko. I live in the USA. After hearing about Natural Selection 2 from Mr Totalbiscuit, i decided to give it a looksy. And because of my bad computer situation, i will only be able to play the original. Seems like it could be fun.

    It's been years since I have played since Half-Life started and would love to get back on with my son and daughters.
    Good luck!

    Wow, my old account is still good on these forums. Awesome! Hey everyone! I saw the pre-order for Natural Selection 2 on steam the other day. I LOVE natural selection! I haven't played in the longest time, but I'm extremely excited for NS2! I've got it ordered and I can't wait to start playing again! Too bad I missed out on the beta, but I will be playing the original up until the launch!

    Hello everyone! I pre-ordered NS2 in 2011 but I have finally decided that my computer is too bad to play it, so I will wait until I get money for a new computer, in the meantime, I can play ol' NS! :)

    Hello. I'm going to start off my introduction by saying... I'm a terrible, terrible player. I was atrocious at NS. I got NS2 quite a while ago, and earned the free copy these lovely developers decided to give out. But I got it hoping, someday to learn to play a game that manages to put together two of my all-time favorite genres. When you see the name Ceteral, you be better off just switching to the other team for a while. lol
