Natural Selection 2 - Shameless Plug

6 posts in this topic

Just a shameless promotion for a game that deserves more attention than it gets.

 

Have you ever wished to be a unit in an FPS? The hero on the battlefield that gets down and dirty to capture territories? 

 

Natural Selection 2 is a team based RTS & FPS Hybrid. Two teams, the marines and aliens, fight against each other for control of resource towers. All players engage in FPS conflict. However, each team elects a Commander throughout the game to view the battle from a top-down perspective. (Traditional RTS perspective) The Commander must orchestrate the team to victory. The Commanders can drop gear, research upgrades or even place buildings that the "units" must build.

 

Really fun, so if you're in to this kind of stuff, come support the game! (And invite your friends!)

Natural Selection 2? Yeah, I think I have heard of that before...

I wanted to get into the game, but I was afraid of playing since I didn't know what the fuck I was doing.  :unsure:

Pretty sure I own it . . . . . only reason I do not play it more is because there are not a lot of people playing.

If you play starcraft, the RTS portion is EASY. It really simplifies everything for you. It will take a couple games for you to be an efficient commander, but provided you do the basics its very hard to screw everything up as long as you follow directions.

The FPS side of things is definitely different. I can't speak for everyone, but I found the aliens were much harder to grasp than marines so I played marines until I figured the game out.

Well that's not a very good excuse. :< There are two servers always full of players, so its more the atmosphere versus the player population actually affecting your gameplay.

I haven't tried playing the commander yet...

I could play 1-2 bot matches as the commander to see how it plays and such.^^
