Natural Selection was one of THE BEST mod for Half Life - I say it was better than Counter Strike and as good as Team Fortress Classic.

I just found out they're remaking it and it looks just as cool. The premise is one team is alien, one team is human. Both teams have to kill the other teams main base (the hive for the aliens, the command post for the humans).

The aliens have no real command and control element but can individually morph into upgraded classes as they accumulate more gas and also can detect human pheromones to see them throughout the map.

The humans have a player act as a commander who drops buildings, researches upgrades, drops health supplies for his troops and gives orders to his team (which can be ignored, but probably shouldn't - since the commander has a pretty good HUD of the map and team work for the humans is absolutely essential).

Along the way, both teams harvest gas which are used for upgrades from control points - and a big part of the game revolves around point control as upgrades are essential for victory.

The game is kind of like Aliens Versus Predator mashed with Starcraft and it was pure awesome.

I'm pretty pumped about this :)

Found this gameplay trailer...

This is looking pretty sweet. I might have to make a trip to the States to pick up a new computer to play it :)
