Now Playing - Natural Selection 2
Maxwell McGee is joined by Charlie Cleveland and Hugh Jeremy of Unknown Worlds to show off some Natural Selection 2!
Frigging sweet FPS and RTS mixed into one. Fast paced combat and awesome strategy elements even for the "grunts!" My most anticipated game of the last 3-4 years! Woot!
Aussie Aussie Aussie! What happens if the commander is killed? How is the commander chosen? Or do people vote on the commander?
this game looks pretty fun but I can see it being really dull if the maps stink though I wouldn't mind checking this out if my pc could handle itl..
@cboye18 maybe you are not aware the original NS was a conterstrike mod and was always a fps with some strategy...
@cboye18 I'm guessing you are not aware that this is in fact also an RTS?
@Vitex2003 Then don't watch it then...
@Vitex2003 This is in fact almost nothing like Quake. There are no powerups in the level. You do not find weapons laying on the ground. You play as a team, not deathmatch.
Using resources earned by the team you buy weapons and equipment (as marines) or evolve into different lifeforms and upgrades (as aliens). Both sides have a commander that plays from a top-down view that places structures, issues orders, and researches upgrades and improvements for your team. Each team is fighting to destroy the other team's main structure (command chair for marines, hive for aliens).
In other words, almost nothing like quake.
