    If not that then over in the corner to the rear right of the dropship.  As it stands, they somehow leapfrogged the depressurising airlock.

    Would've been more accurate (and funny) to find them wrapped balls first around one of the dropship landing struts.

    Best egg design: Alien.
    2nd is Alien 3 - seemed almost a replicate to Alien to my memory.

    3rd is Resurrection, but cameron's alien egg looked better and more like the original on the outside, lacking those round 'breasts' that the a:r ones have. however, as mentioned earlier in the thread, cameron's aliens egg's looked poor on the inside, noodle filled indeed. and i also don't like how 'thin' the actual egg appears in cameron's depiction. a:r's egg closely resembles the internal egg of the original, and looks more 'convincing' overall. not too disappointed.

    Nothing wrong with ressurection egg designs. Jeunet's take on it was awesome. Made them feel like they were an alltogether different creature alive and pulsating.

    But eggs aren't suppose to be alive.  The eggs in A:R reminded me more of the balls that pop out of Gizmo's back in Gremlins before they turn into little creatures.  It just didn't seem to fit...like the whole movie itself.

    Its not exactly helpful when people make comments right after something like this and blow it off into a hate thread of completely sided responses. Nobody wants to address anything, they just rip into an agreed side and stick. Then everyone thinks its a hate thread because it shows two sides. Of course if only everyone here wanted to post more elaborately rather than just to up their post count. Which results in absolutely nothing.

    They should, and about the video...I sure hope we get some f**king scary as f**k moments while roaming around the hive. I don't want lame as hell jump scares or scripted events of seeing some blips on your motion tracker only for the script to have it be that some Xeno has actually been hunting you and only appears at a certain point in the area to scare you. f**k that, give me honest to gods scares that are random each and every time.

    Its amusing how some people think scriped is bad, i mean most cinematic games where you try to achieve specific goals are scripted. The AI: might have unscripted events triggered but if the game was totally open-world non-linear and non-scripted it wouldn't be much of a controlled experience at all and thus not necessarily good at all.

    There are cons and pros to everything, its not black and white.


    You seemed to miss when I said this:


    They should only use scripted events when they actually move the story forward.


    Which goes to show you that I don't think scripted events as black or white as you think I do. And the post that you quoted me from should pretty much explain it as well. I was hoping I was specific enough in that first post so that no one would make the mistake of thinking that I meant scripted events in general are bad.

    Right idea. Wrong reasons.

    Regardless of designs, since they're painstakingly paying attention to such mundane detail as what panel the Queen lifted up when looking for Newt, the least they could have done was actually pay attention to the designs that are actually in your face, like the Xenomorphs, the Eggs, etc. God damn Xenos are a mix of all the different kinds, they aren't 100% the way they should be. It's insane. I bet we get to find Newt's doll's head, and Gearbox is going to f**king get all the details of the DIRT on its plastic head correct, and then the next day come out and show us an inauthentic-looking APC or something like that.
    Hopefully they get Bishops legs positioned the right way.  ;)

    If they were authentic, then those legs wouldn't be there- unless Bishop is secretly Spiderman, and can't be dislodged from any surface...without tearing it off with him. Stupid Gearbox. ::) :laugh:

    are the dorsal tubes sharper or thinner in the game? Well, really we weren't meant to have it in our faces that often in the movies anyway. I couldn't have foreseen it, but it looks clumsy while the xeno is running especially from behind. But either way, there's got to be some leeway here in keeping it and  making it work in front of us.

     My only MAIN beef is if they make all the xenos with toon animations. It totally ruins the feeling that these can logically exist in our world.
    For example, in AR where an xeno just jumps out of the water and onto a ladder with ease and precision. Some guy at Pixar is laughing all the way to the bank while we have that TOONISH crap installed in our minds.

    XENOs should move natural   like they were motion captured, if not for some slight modifications. They should move ever so slightly like a real man should. That would ultimately sell your xenos the best possible way.

    Its the sick feeling you get when it moves like a man but it looks like a machine.

    I am an idiot for ranting about the Xeno design when I didn't give a thought months back. Now I can't unsee it all.

    Its because you are being irrational. The xeno 'costumes' were fit for man. And...made to be filmed in complete darkness with light highlights. Well lo and behold, we get to see them in all its CGI glory in the game and THUS they need to conceal what would literally spoil the xeno's costume design by concealling all the crap that made it look like a bloody costume.
     
    Remember that the xenos feet looked like slippers or running shoes with toes. So they completely took that out for that reason alone and also because that I can describe it to you while i'm drunk. its that bad.

    I agree as well but you know developers these days.

    I haven't played too many horror games but are there any that have unscripted events that actually work? I've heard of Amnesia and Penumbra but I can't think of anything else that is mostly unscripted.

    Based on what we've seen so far - they're not.  Unless someone moved them.  Stupid thing is they seem to have gotten the position of his top half correct.

    Absolutamente.

    Add to that was the passive poo-pooing of Resurrection "While Resurrection is just random stuff..."  Obviously not random enough to not nick the egg designs as well as the cryotube designs.

    (Gee using the Resurrection egg design isn't going to piss anyone off at all...  ;D)

    Agreed, they chose the worse design from the worse movie...Specially this is following ALiens, why in tha hell would they change the egg design?!

    Seriously? It's an egg. Odds are you going to blow the thing to hell before you can get up close to it and inspect it and all its details.
    They still could have used one of the better designs.
