I CRINGED when they unveiled the charger Alien. Consolized, linear, scripted piece of shit.

Id love more than anything to be proved wrong but i know in my heart i am not ;)

Yeah, and the guy presenting was all like "Look at this awesome alien we came up with!", and I was like "Fuck this BULLshit.".

Another thing that stuck with me after watching the gameplay video was how often the presenter said stuff like "Look, it's just like in the movie!" as if to have viewers concentrate on that because the rest is sadly lacking in substance. When you have the setting of a movie for your game, everything being "just like in the movie" is a fucking GIVEN. Now where's the good gameplay? Because that seems to be lacking quite a bit... I mean, even the sliding under the closing gate was scripted, and the aliens were kinda not really scary. Graphic-wise, it's way behind AvP as well - which could be fixed with some color correction filters to give the whole thing a more consistent and atmospheric look.

I really, really hope they don't fuck this up, but I'm pretty sure they already have.

Quick preview by German games magazine GameStar.

God, videogame dudes sound smug in any language don't they.

I wasn't too fussed about this game really, till I heard the word Splitscreen used in a few previews that is.

He's just reading his script. It doeesn't really come across as smug in German, but rather factual.

I think the game is going to be alright, but that's it. Co-op is probably going to be fun for 2-3 playthroughs, maybe the VS MP is decent, but this will probably be played a lot for a couple of months and then collect dust. IMHO

oh dip dots, within the first minute of that review you can see the ship he's walking onto is the uss sulaco :o that's the ship from aliens. so i guess this game's timeline falls into place just after the movie aliens' timeline.

Yeah, you're a group of marines who're supposed to locate Ripley, and you're on the ulaco as well as on LV407 including the colony of course, which apparently wasn't desintegrated in that explosion at the end of Aliens. :huh:

I was excited in the past but the more they show, the more boring it looks

My biggest gripe: the xenomorphs move too slow, they aren't terrifying if they aren't darting across your screen at lightning speed

I'm making it a point not to buy games that have season passes.

Actually its not anymore. GBX decided to scrap the coop survival and they made it versus survival 4v4...... (no AI xenos of any kind). Pretty lame to promote the game as coop shooter but in the meantime it features just 1 coop mode. Here is the Live event from a few days ago

I am greatly disappointed. Its just another shooter. I guess I will cancel my pre order after 12 years of waiting.

When I look at these trailers I don't think it looks like a bad game, just not what I hoped for. "Another shooter" does sum it up quite well.

I partly blame the Unreal 3 engine as it seems no matter how different developers try to make games look with it/where they're set everything just looks the same, which when combined with the fact AAA shooters try to shoehorn in 'standard' features (like the way he runs/inertia) games on that engine can get very samey.

"Whoopty fuckin' doo" sums it up better. This reminds me of that game based on The Godfather where it was like "Now YOU get to be the guy...who put the severed horse head under the bedsheets. Now YOU can be the guy...who bought the cannolis and placed them in the ACCURATELY RECREATED refrigerator."

I'm actually starting to hate Aliens just listening to this shit.

I never played that Godfather game.

I remember when it was being hyped thinking it looked shit, like an impoverished mans version of Mafia 1.
