[natural selection 2] Mini gc battles with aliens!

Post by dan1mall » Wed Nov 14, 2012 7:58 pm

Hai guys

So after fields told me about it, longbow, divine-sneaker and I have bought the game natural selection 2. It is an FPS and RTS mix, where each team has 1 commander controlling the RTS aspect, and up to 11 players who play the FPS aspect.

It actually functions a lot like gc, where 1 guy is "FC"-ing the other players. However, as opposed to GC the game has a lot more RTS elements to it. For example, there are tech trees leading up to better weapons such as shotguns, or even gadgets such as jet-packs. (Also it has aliens)
Having only played pubs so far, I cant really comment on organized play, however the pubs have had an extraordinary amount of teamwork, rivaled only by GC battledays, which is a lot of fun if youre into the organized team play.

The game is played on maps which are about 80% indoors. Each map consists out of seperate rooms which both teams must try and fight over. Once a room is secured, the commander can place a harvester there to acquire more rescources to tech up and give his team an edge over the enemy team. Some rooms also allow for a secondary main base to be constructed. Once 1 team has killed all the enemy teams main command structures, they win.

If you wanna get some more info on the game, I highly suggest you check out total biscuits videos. They are a bit old, but hes playing while also talking about the game with a developer:

Marine gameplay Alien gameplay Commander gameplay I highly suggest you guys check it out, as each battle is basically a mini gc battle except you're fighting against or as aliens ^^

I already got this game. Saw it one time when totalbiscuit showed it. It's a really fun game, especially when done properly.

Perhaps we should get a list going - I saw this on Steam the other day and almost picked it up, but I didn't know if anyone else played. I'd definitely go buy it to play with GC guys though.

Just picked this up for a couple of bucks during the summer sale. Anyone interested in joining me for a few games?
