Natural Selection 2 was released in 2012. It is nearly 7 years later and the game is still getting substantial updates. This update contains a remake of a Natural Selection 1 map called “ORIGIN”, tons of balance changes, dropping DirectX 9 in favor for DirectX 11, new Temporal Anti-Aliasing options, and various other tweaks and optimizations. The full list of patch notes can be found here. If you are not familiar with Natural Selection 2, check out some gameplay videos here.
A new System Shock 3 trailer is out. For some reason I am having a really hard time getting excited for this one. OtherSide Entertainment’s last game was bad, so my expectations are fairly low right now. I am way more interested in the System Shock 1 Remake and System Shock 2 Enhanced Edition. This System Shock 3 trailer looks like a budget version of Prey. Now that I think about it, Prey was awesome so can we just get Prey 2 please?
I could listen to John talk all day, so I was pretty excited to see this 2 and a half hour interview.
