Man... I recall a moment when I first started playing Natural Selection, a game in which the marines have more ranged weapons than the aliens and new players are encouraged to play marines...
.. so there I was, green as can be, running ALONE down a hallway toward the end of a game. Around the corner comes this biped alien about my size, and I'm thinking... I can shoot this thing from down the hall and it won't be able to do a thing!
All of a sudden, it hurls this THING.... (what I would later learn is called an ACID ROCKET) ... toward me... well, in my startled state, I actually physically leaned quickly to the left in an effort to avoid it, I guess kinda like physically moving the Nintendo controller to the right as you jumped Mario over a big hole in the floor....
... and that was on a 2D MONITOR... I can't imagine the potential of 3D monitors in gaming... wow...
Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.
