Natural Selection 2 has been updated again, and this time some essential parts of the game have been improved.
The latest update has improved the hit detection with better net code, so you could find yourself actually enjoying the experience a lot more.
It also now has a "Play Now" button, so you no longer need to waste time scanning a server list. Also a very nice addition. Although, it doesn't work all that was since every time I use it, it connects me to a server that demands 40+ hours playtime or it will kick you.
See the full update notes here. I love that they have a team working on it again, and I really hope it works out as I would love to play this more.
Sadly, on Linux it seems the experience right now is pretty poor. Every time I tried to properly get into a game it quit to the desktop. Sometimes it doesn't even get to the server loading screen, it just instantly crashes the moment I try to join a server. Not impressed. Especially since I came across this forum topic with people sending in traces using GDB, and it still hasn't been tracked down. From the end replies, it sounds like they badly need a 64bit version.
