Rise & Stream: Nathan The PlanetSide 2 War Correspondent

History Is Streamed By The Winners

If you haven't already heard, we're at war. Eternal war, truth be told, but of a friendly, (typically) only virtually fatal sort with the PC Gamer lot and also everyone else who's ever played PlanetSide 2. You can enlist right here for a giant community play session that's kicking off at 12:30 PM PT/7:30 PM GMT, but if you'd rather not risk life and level one limb, there's another option. You can watch me, a person who has never played PlanetSide 2, attempt to be some kind of war correspondent. On the docket: witnessing spectacular catastrophe firsthand, stumbling around and dying a lot, and then probably interviewing key players on all sides after they've emerged from the carnage. I honestly have no idea if this will be any good, but let's find out together, like a big, argumentative family on a Sunday picnic - only with more, you know, war.

Update: We're done! What an insane, nearly overwhelming game. Absurdly strategic and fascinating, though. You can watch the whole thing below.

If you want to go straight to the post-war interview (which is really interesting), skip to 1:08:00 of the second video.
