Female Marines in Natural Selection 2!

Source: http://unknownworlds.com/ns2/the-female-marine/

 "The game industry has a history of depicting female characters inappropriately. Often, they are stylised to such a degree that they become sexual objects: While their male comrades are clothed, armed and armoured to fight, the female character is notable for the lack of any clothing at all. When female characters are granted equal protection, that protection often ignores basic laws of physics in favour of offering titillating form.

This is not good enough, and it’s not a trope Unknown Worlds will entertain. Games are legitimate cultural influences, and game developers are responsible for the message they choose to convey to players. The Natural Selection 2 female marine is first and foremost, like her male colleague, a soldier. Her armour puts function before form, while adopting the science fiction, melee combat aligned design ques that have made the male marine so uniquely recognisable.“

Unknown Worlds I cannot high-five you hard enough. Good job!

Was playing Natural Selection 2 marine side having a good fight

Had command posts either side of their main hive

Doing pretty well

Commander asks us what to do next because he’s new

One guy jokingly says “sell all our stuff”

He actually does it

All our command posts are lost

We can’t physically spawn because he sold the machines that spawn us

“gg”

Самая неожиданная покупка этой распродажи и пока что самая радостная.

Сейчас раскатали алиенов под командованием очень приятного шведа - pure fun. Начинаешь понимать, как чувствует себя юнит, которым хорошо играют в RTS.

NATURAL SELECTION 2 is the Aliens game Gearbox waved in front of your face before they spent all their dev money on yet another cash cow. With asymmetrical multiplayer battles between human marines and alien aliens, and the quirky addition of team commanders that direct the flow of the matches through RTS style controls, you’ll find dozens of unique ways to fuck things up for your whole team and get yelled at.
