  1. Seems like a delay is a good thing,no point bringing out a game if its half assed,like AVP 2010.

    personally, i think this announcement reeks of PR spin for "it`s SO broken that we just wouldn`t get away with it... so we`ll wait until it`s at least passable(and will make some money back)"

    .... and THEN they`ll rush it out and immediately drop support for it" ;)
  2. Yeah, we're more likely to get a beta code in another 2K game, rather than another gearbox game.
    Maybe Bioshock Infinite or something, assuming that comes out first, we know a lot more about it.
  3. Im a little concerened with Aliens CM going up against Borderlands 2. If they want Aliens to sell more, i think its best they spread out those release dates. Plus, i dont want Aliens to fall behind on the marketing side of things. People want BL2 bad. Not many know of ACM like we do. We'll see i guess. Either way, that trailer is sweet.
  4. This sucks, a month or two delay is one thing, buy we could possibly be waiting until 30th November.. thats 306 days, the earliest original spring target (March 1st) is only 31 days away... that's a POSSIBLE 275 day difference! There must be some big problems on this project. =(
  5. I wonder if the delay was so they could release it on Wii U since Nintendo plans to release the Wii U in November?

    If that's true then that's good for me since I'm planning on buying one and now I have a game to look forward to when I get it. Also this is probably the only game aside from RE 6 that I'm really excited for during the autumn time frame. ;D

    I'd still suspect that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game would be better and more impressive, tho.
  6. What's AVP 2011?

  7. I have no respect for Sega.  Not after AVP 2011.  That game had so much potential, but they cut support for it at the first sign of trouble.  f**k Sega up the ass with a combistick.  This game wont be any different.  They've had more than enough time to get this game polished and complete.  Someone is dropping the ball, and I bet it's because of Sega being complete dick wads.  Gearbox may be doing their best to make a great game, but if Sega doesn't just shell out the cash and shut the f**k up, the game will be damaged goods before it's released.  That's exactly what happened to AVP 2011.
  8. I will get/download this game in "that" way, just because they are using the consumers like toys. I`m waiting this game since 2008 and the only thing i see so far is DELAY DELAY DELAY!

    ! I hope they do a awesome/perfect game in my point of view, that will be the only way i get this game in "the good way".
  9. I'm a WEE-BIT torqued off about this...  For the last HOW MANY YEARS we've been strung along with supposed release dates, screen shots, interviews and trailers.. we were PROMISED early 2012.. and as a result, I built a brand-new badass gaming computer - something I've been putting off for 3 years waiting for this to come out - only to be told that I will have to wait even longer...

    If the end result is a better product, I'm all for waiting; but don't string me along just to keep interest high, because that's bad business - and now I have to spend MORE $$$ to upgrade my computer in the autumn.  I wish these guys knew how hard it was to afford things like this when you have child support to pay, and college savings accounts to fill.  In fact, I think they need to pay me a bit of interest and royalties on this product; I've been INTERESTED for 25 years, and I've been a loyal fan of Gearbox's, and who's products I've recommended to friends many times over the years.
  10. having just got in and watched the trailer .it realy is just the old game put in the marine world....nice cut scene advert of what the story sequences will be like
    cos i is gangsta for a 50 year old
  11. The new trailer seems to confirm an Autumn release date.

  12. Hi,

    I'd be interested to know if the multiplayer plays similarly to Left 4 Dead versus mode, where the opposing side play as aliens trying to stop the marines from reaching their goal/destination.

    Also, will the game be heavily scripted with monster closets or more randomly generating like AVP1 on the PC. Personally I like a more flexible approach, where a hive will be constantly pumping out aliens and marines will have constantly to be on the move and conserve ammo. Staying put= certain death eventually.

    Thanks Gearbox, I wish you strength to work hard on the game! It will pay off.
  13. Wow quite a few people losing it over the delay and calling it the next AVP, good to see some levelheaded people here still.

    Im just standing with 2 feet on the ground and i dont get my hopes up...so if the game gonna nothing more than just an avp im not gonna stress but if it will be a lil bit cool i will be suprised and happy. But its my choice ;) wich not recmmended to follow.
  14. LAME!

    Too much waiting too much hype! Thats why this game gonna sucks big time! It will not come up to our expectations! Waiting 7 years for a game much more  like the latest AVP...it will be nothing more im afraid but this waiting makes us belive that "whooohooo they are just want to make it perfect", yay...no, its just a shooter, im afraid it wll not have a great story, not have great characters, only graphics, gore and MAYBE excitment but honestly after horror games like silent hilll and after live action games like modern warfare....what the F are they doing with this because stuff like these in ACM WILL NOT BE INCLUDED. Its just a nice shooter.

    Oh there was loads more i could fault but your previous post was so full of miss-informed gibberish that calling you on your gangster/text lingo was just too easy.
  16. bet its the same skins n engine as the avp2000 nonsense one . riding on the shirt tail of the movie release , a quick copy paste inside job...........the bar they have to fire above is skyrim bf3 and mw50 from grfx to gameplay they couldnt even limbo past bioshock on the last one

    ill have £10.00  bet says you still cant get over a knee high box or under a half closed door


    lol, i don't even know how to respond to that.
  17. Canceling my pre-order for something else. Of course I'll pre-order it again once it gets close to when it will actually come out. But I'm tight on money and other things are coming out that I wanna get.

    Anyway, I'm equally bummed and happy about the delay. On the one hand, I want to play it NOW. On the other hand, I was worried about the game being a total flop since there's been no real promotion thus far. If they use this time to improve the game AND make the general public aware of it, then we might have a great game to look forward to, as opposed to a mess.

    Personally, I don't think that AVP2010 was a bad game. But I'd like to see ACM do even better, commercially and critically.
