Or at least watch him run around.

They also did an NS2 preview but...I'm not so sure they know what they're talking about as it mentions the alien team as not having a commander, when it's been repeatedly said that they are getting a commander in NS2. I even found this on the NS2 forums.

I'm glad they're focusing on the onos first. That class has the most stylistic problems.

And mechanically. It always seemed like they couldn't quite figure out what do with him in NS1, or it at least took some time to figure out.

I don't really like the look of the new onos. I always liked the idea of the man vs. beast thing, where one side uses technology and one side is just brute force.

Are you saying he looks too fashion-forward?

I think what he's saying is the the onos looks too much like a lifeform mixed with technology.

I, for one, like the look of the metal plating, but I wished it had a rougher and more natural look to it... as if the onos had evolved deposits of alloys to stymie the marines with their petty bullets. Details, details.

I dunno, I like him. The chitin armor on the front sells his "omg tough" thing a bit more than the original concept, where he had tentacles and other shit going on.

More like "Meet the Default Run Animation"... I was pretty dissappointed.

Yeah, I was hoping to see the Onos come in, casually sit down and say "I am giant space cow. And these, these are my giant space cow tusks. I weigh 1.5 metric tons and it costs 75 resources just hatch me." Then finish with him standing at the end of a narrow hallway repeatedly stomping a group of heavies...






Seriously, I think I could recreate the whole thing: Cut to the Onos running backwards from marines and coming to a dead stop when blocked by a skulk: "Omg, who touched tushy? WHO TOUCHED MY BUM!"
Funner then chuckin' rocks at a sign!

There is a brief Meet The Skulk sort similar to that brief Onos vid now too, just FYI.
Check it out! I finally figured out where to make a avatar that will fit on the forums! http://www.shrinkpictures.com/create-avatar/
