I loved this game back in the day, and recently replayed it on PC. The new PC version by Nightdive Studios is fantastic and worth checking out.
With the recent release of the massive Unearthed Update and the sale of the game on Steam, I have seen a bunch of new players getting into Natural Selection 2. I brought the game up to a few of my friends, and they didn’t really know what type of game it was. So I figured I would take the opportunity to post a bit of gameplay (one round on each team) to give people a better idea of how it works. Take a look at the videos below if you are on the fence about the game.
Here is a quick overview so you know what you are looking at
Here is some Aliens gameplay:
Here is some Marines gameplay:
Westwood Studios co-founder Louis Castle talks about the development of the classic RTS, Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun.
This is actually pretty old, but I realized that I never made a post about it. Adam Sessler serves as host for OtherSide Entertainment and guests including Ken Levine while they play and discuss System Shock 2. There is a lot of great anecdotes around the design and development of the game, but unfortunately the audio quality is all over the place. Someone really should create a KickStarter to replace Adam’s dollar store microphone. At least Paul Neurath and Ken Levine sound good.
The Resident Evil 2 “1-Shot Demo” was released the other day, and I finally had some time to sit down and check it out. Its called the “1-Shot Demo” because you only get to play it for 30 minutes, which is enough time to finish it as long as you don’t sight see too much. I managed to finish the demo in a little over 20 minutes, and I have to say I really like what they have done. I played Resident Evil 2 multiple times through back in the day, and I was worried that there would not be a lot of new stuff to see here besides a fresh coat of paint. Based on what I was able to see, the police station was greatly expanded on, and I kept running into new puzzles and gameplay mechanics. If the whole game has been expanded on in this way then I think it is going to turn out to be pretty awesome. The
link to download the demo is below (the demo is no longer available), and you can check out some of the screenshots I took as well. If after playing the demo you want to pre-purchase the game, Green Man Gaming is currently selling it for up to 26% off.
