Guess what released today? ONLY NUCLEAR DAWN! Go grab a copy of this great hybrid RTS/FPS game here:
Then, of course, buy a massively expensive game server from us here:
Today I found this article on Nuclear Dawn. The Rock Paper Shotgun guys do a great job of summing up the game with fun mathematical expressions. They also give a spot on review of the game and capture the real reason why you should play it. It’s obvious that Nuclear Dawn is going to be a bigger game than most people expect. It’s just fun. Even with a closed beta that had a very limited number of players, there were still a good number of servers full.
When you’re ready, be sure to grab your own Nuclear Dawn game server from HGS here: http://www.hostedgameservers.com/game_server/nuclear-dawn-game-server-hosting
This marks the second real FPS/RTS game on the market and the best to date. We will have to wait and see what Natural Selection brings to the table near final development. I know I’m going to play both!
Believe it or not, HostedGameServers.com is run on a VM! A pretty big VM it is, but still, thats not normal for a hosting company. We’re ordering our 28th server and its going to be a dedicated web hosting box. The panel should increase in speed quite a bit and the website should load much more snappy. I expect this to be ready and going in about a week. There are a lot of legacy things that need moved over and converted. We’re switching to ubuntu server too, so that complicates things a wee bit.
Joesph has made some new videos(yay) about how to upload minecraft worlds to your server. This method can be applied to different games as well.
The Easiest Way (for smaller world files <50mb):
With an FTP Client (for larger world files >50mb):
If you have questions or comments post on the topic in the forums.
Finally its is up and running, but sadly it isnt on windows. We are using TDSM which is the linux one. We might switch over to windows once we get it running. Sadly windows will be a couple more months because we hit a snag or less depending on how fast we can solve the problem. It is $1.50/slot, up to 40 players. Get yours here.
We’ve gone ahead and added the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) game page up, even if you cant buy a server yet. When CS:GO is out, we will be the first to have you hosted! You will likely even have access to your server BEFORE the game launches!
The official CS:GO game server hosting page is here: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Game Server Hosting.
I am sure you’re all as excited for this release as we are. You can watch the reveal trailer below:
Wow! Nuclear Dawn is fun. I just got done playing this game and knew I had to add it to HGS. It’s got the tactics of an RTS game with the action of a team based FPS. This game is still in beta but is sure to make a great following. There hasn’t yet been a proper RTS/FPS until now… it’s a great one!
I’m sure you’ll be playing Nuclear Dawn at some point. Here’s what it looks like:
