Natural Selection
« on: August 21, 2004, 12:16:45 pm »
Anyone else play this great Half-Life mod?
http://www.natural-selection.org
Interesting cross between FPS and RTS.  Worth a look if you've never heard of it.
I've been playing it since 1.04 (long while ago).  After a bad clan experience *shudder* I stopped playing for a few monthes, but have since picked it up again.
If anyone wants to look me up on Steam and play some time, my nick is Turtle, real name Isaiah Glatz.

I used to play it a bit, it was great fun but only if you got into a decent server. It has potential to be a classic but it's let down if you don't have a decent commander as the marines. Infact... I might have to start playing it again at some point...

Funny you should mention steam <.< (evil!) I haven't used steam for about 1 1/2 months, right after my DVD player broke down (I cbf replacing it).

Getting to the point, I have played NS for a bit and I didn't think it was my scene. It was a really nicley made mod, I could play the game and I did enjoy it for a bit. I don't know what happened I just stopped playing it. Much like TFC, I'll still play that if I have a chance.

Damn, I thought this was a thread about the delightfully underrated (IMO) game Unnatural Selection. Silly me. :P

Beta 5 came out.  Many many changes.  Going to play now.  If I'm not back in a week, send a rescue party.
