Don't miss out this holiday sale! (+ Free copy giveaway)
That amazing! This 2.50$USD price like it was on November 9th daily deal IS BACK.
Seriously, I doubt any other game on Steam can provide a better quality/price deal than this.

It's giving me some present ideas.

So if you like FPS, strategy, teamwork, I truly recommend getting this game RIGHT NOW.
For those of you who like being the lone wolf on top of the scoreboard with the best K/D ratio, well, you can also have that :)
But be warned that's not how the game really is oriented.

And because I'm such a marketing *****, I'll even give away a free copy just so people click more often on this thread.

I'll give the free copy to whoever manages to blow my mind in a single reply. It can be Nuclear Dawn related or not. As long as it is impressive/moving. I'll select the winner when I come back from holidays, which should be around the 3rd of January 2013. If the world doesn't end that is.

Happy holidays and see you on ND in 2013

Well, It seems like good game. So let me try to blow your mind away with something Nuclear related.
Everybody knows about the two bombs that were dropped on Japan in WW2. Little Boy and Fat Man. Little Boy was the second artificial nuclear explosion by Mankind. In the very first few seconds of detonation, 130 thousand people were killed. Little man is assumed very weak compared to other Nuclear bombs, the nuclear yield EQUIVALENT of a detonation of 16 Kilo Tonnes of Trinitrotoluene (TNT).
Now the Fat Man which was also dropped on Japan, was about 21 Kilo Tonnes of TNT. It killed around 30 thousand people (although it's been said that it was alot more than that, but US doesn't agree).
Now there were a lot of other nuclear and hydrogen bombs test though out the history, specially during the Cold War.
But there's something that can make all of the other nuclear bombs look like FIREWORKS compared to it. It's the Tsar Bomba, made by Russians and I think it's safe to say that we are VERY lucky that only 1 Tsar was ever made. It's also known as the King of the Bombs. The bomb's weight was 27 tonnes, and its dimensions were: 8 meters (26ft) in length, and 2 meters (6.5ft) in diameter. It was tested in October 30th 1961 as 50 MEGAton device although it was really designed as a 100 Megaton device, not a 50 Megaton device.

Quoting Wikiepdia: "The initial three-stage design was capable of yielding the power of approximately 100 Mt, but would have caused too much radioactive fallout. To limit fallout, the third stage and possibly the second stage had a lead tamper instead of a uranium-238 fusion tamper (which greatly amplifies the reaction by fissioning uranium atoms with fast neutrons from the fusion reaction). This eliminated fast fission by the fusion-stage neutrons, so that approximately 97% of the total energy resulted from fusion alone (as such, it was one of the "cleanest" nuclear bombs ever created, generating a very low amount of fallout relative to its yield). There was a strong incentive for this modification since most of the fallout from a test of the bomb would have ended up on populated Soviet territory."

The blast yield was equal to that of a blast of 57,000,000 Tonnes of TNT.. .or to put that into context: The weight of 270 Empire State Buildings worth of TNT. This makes the Tsar the most powerful nuclear device ever detonated in history. Think of the destruction at Hiroshima. The Tsar was 3800 times more powerful than Hiroshima.

I want to ask is htere any online community in this game ?
Tallahassee 21 de Dic, 2012 a las 5:46 
A 35 km radius of total destruction eh? that's a very good start!
I wonder what the guys who made the bomb thought about when they worked on that thing.

Btw I forgot to mention, it doesn't have to be something tremendous, or real, or serious. Dang it, could even be one of those damn lolcat videos. As long as the reply causes the distortion of my normal face expression, its good.

Whatever makes my face distort the most wins.

WARNING: <--- APATHY LVL > 9000

And for the sake of sanity, decency, and to prevent scarring forever the mind of an unwilling child, please refrain from posting anything that would make the discussion go 18+.


To answer Tricky's question: It all depends what your question really asks;

Is there an online community for the game?: Pretty much yes. There are a couple clans too. http://forums.interwavestudios.com/ (Where you can find most hardcore fans)

Is there an active player population for the game?: Meh, it also depends.
I'd say, if there's not some special event like a free weekend or a sale on Steam, there's an average of 1.2 full servers every night during the week and 1.9 during weekends. The value can range between 0.5 and 3.2 full servers at extremes, but you can often find 2 full servers during the weekend. Of course, those are current averages, they fluctuate alot depending on sales.
(1 full server = 32 players)

And most players will tell you: The only drawback of the game is that not enough people play it.

If you play the game during the right hours then you should have no problem getting a nice match.

I'm really interested in this game, because I've played Natural Selection 2 so was looking for more games with RTS + FPS, and I was sooooo excited to find that there were more games that combined the genres <3<3

Okay, blow your mind in one reply? Then here's something you may or may not know. The imaginary number i when squared is -1. A squared number is -1!?
LegendsLord 神手 1 de Ene, 2013 a las 23:56 
2013 is the first year since 1987 to have 4 different numbers.

The Rhyme 'Humpty Dumpty' never mentions that he was an egg!


He was originally thought to be a tortoise (a kind of battering ram) or a cannon (there are lots of theories). This only changed when Martin Gardner in The Annotated Mother Goose said that it was a riddle, the answer being an egg. And thus the legend was born!! :)

oh, one more if I may

The lighter was invented before the match! :D

Lighter in the 16th century and the match in 1827.

Hello again forum folks,
I just came back from holidays, and darn that was fun. Hope you guys had fun too.

I was quite eager to check out what kind of insane stuff would have been layed by participants.
Thanks everyone who participated, I enjoyed my reading.
Not as mind-blowing as I would have expected though.

As I said earlier, the winner would be the person who would manage to difform my face the most in a single reply.

AND THE WINNER IS: LegendsLord 神手 (that guy with the canadian flag as icon)
(and yes, that decision is totally subjective)

And because I like blowing the mind of others, not just mine, here's a couple things which would have distorted my face.
1. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRlNOyxWWf8
2. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIa06Y_vZ4E
3. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqeqW3g8N2Q (not impressive but still mind blowing)

And to all of you who want to try out ND, you still have some time to buy it on discount!
Hope to see you hang around, I might repeat that contest sometime, possibly, eventually :P
