<div class="IPBDescription">...and we thought they were original</div> Sure, all strategy games have turrets, and even a few fps have turrets, but where do you suppose the turrets in Natural Selection came from? The "Aliens" movie of course! That is the second movie in the Aliens saga(the first one being "Alien"). "But Wait!", you say... "There weren't sentries in the second aliens movie!" Well I bought the entire series in a new boxed set they are selling it in, and the it turns out the film I speak of had 17 minutes of additional footage that wasn't shown when the film came out, or even on many of the runs it had on TV. About 6-10 minutes of that footage is of a series of scenes where the marines put up sentries that function almost exactly like the ones in Natural Selection. They even beep like the ones in NS as they turn! These forgotten scenes were very cool(lots of xenomorphs got messed up pretty badly) and I suggest any fan of NS go out and either rent or buy a NEW copy of the movie Aliens (especially if you have never seen this particular movie at all).
