More on Natural Selection 2

The Unknown Worlds Website has another of the reveals for Natural Selection 2, the upcoming online first-person shooter sequel. Today we meet "Gorge" the game's main "builder/healer" class that's a bit lacking in offensive power. They link to a trailer on the YouTube with some character animations, and describe similarities and differences between the Gorge in the first game and the sequel.

I liked the differing RTSesque styles between Marines and Aliens...

I agree completely. Its a shame they are doing it this way.

But I guess it was due to balancing issues. The last versions of NS1 were horribly balanced.
On the other hand I doubt highly that they are going back to the game style that caused games to last for hours and marines really had to wait quite a while before they got upgrades and started to plow through aliens.
They are prolly getting upgrades very soon and start owning aliens right away, like in the later versions.
That would suck.

However, its nice to see that they stay close to the old art style. It was perfect already. Felt a bit like youre in the Alien universe, and still was very funny without taking away parts of the atmosphere.

I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

While I like the new and improved role for the Gorge, I'm not so sure about:
Now there is an Alien Commander building technology structures, so Gorge-created structures won't unlock upgrades or abilities for other players.

I liked the differing RTSesque styles between Marines and Aliens...

Now they're both going to have commanders?

I know it's a small quibble.
I've already bought the special (read +$20) edition of this.

Lacking in offensive power??? Web and spit/heal has been the bane of so many hapless space marines!
