Dash Text: For centuries the Kavussari and the Forsellians have waged war. They have a fragile truce but due to their seething disgust of each other they still pit their warriors against each other in arenas rather than on the fields of war. Those episodes of lethal combat are now broadcast throughout the galaxy, as entertainment… a spectacle known as… The Nexuiz Competition: An arena based first person shooter where you can alter the rules of the match and laws of physics while you dominate opponents in ever-changing hostile environments bleeding with hatred.

    I would buy it but it will be dead in 2 weeks, as with every other online fps baring Bf1943.

      Hey now, if you don’t buy the game because “it’ll be dead in two weeks because of a terrible availability heuristic” then the chances that I’ll get my money’s worth are just that much lower.  And being from the internet, and prone to judgements that are without any sense of proportion, I too will not get the game, which will affect the next player on and the next player on in a cataclysmic wave of pre-emptive apathy which will doom Nexuiz to only a short few weeks of life.

      You see, as we see all the time in Sci-Fi, predicting the future has destroyed it.  So just go with your gut this time and play the game you want to play.  Regardless of what happens in a few weeks, months, or even a year out, if you’ve enjoyed yourself that’s all that really matters.  And hey, as with UT there’s always bots.

    First time loaded, press start wouldn’t work. Second time loaded, kicked with a message the service isn’t available. Not very impressive.

    I do not wish to purchase this, even though it will be free due to buying the other 3 games in the promotion.
