    I love that this game isn't JUST some Alien game but a true survival horror game that is completely dedicated to the first films atmosphere filled with dread, terror and true horror. Haven't played a game like that in awhile since Silent Hill lol.

    I can't help but agree. for a long time the only alien games we ever got were FPS games. I think this will be good to breathe new life into the alien gaming franchise. this is why I hope the game comes out good, and does great. I can see Potential in the direction this game wants to go. I HOPE this game is good. I WANT to hype for it. but I have to hold restraint and wait and see what the reviews say.

    Aside from that I will get this game. it has alot of potential and I like the direction this game is going because it's an alien game. the franchise was MADE for Survivor horror, as Aliens is made for FPS. Perhaps if the game is good enough we can see a Survivor horror game for Predator? just imagine that!

    But did they have people test the Rome series?

    That's reason enough for me, we've got proof of people actually playing the game.
    Well people played the Dark souls 2 demos at conventions and said it looked fantastic but when it got released it didnt look that good anymore, going after demos/gameplays/videos and pictures is a bad idea. Ever since the 80s game producers and developers has used many tricks to fool one to buy the games, in the 80s they often showed pictures from the arcade edition and not the actual game, in the 90s paid reviews and rendered pictures, in the 20s and to now hype and false videos etc, its pretty normal for those who have been in the industry a long time :)

    I know that PCs will always trump consoles in sheer horsepower, but connecting my PC to my TV really isn't an option. My PC is upstairs and my TV is downstairs. :P
    Meh, monitors have better picture quality than most TVs.  :P
    I don't see how that changes anything I said. :P

    I'll deal with inferior graphics if it means I get to play on my couch with my surround sound system.

    Yay, they have added lips and saliva!

    Wut?

    Isn´t this the first clip of the game where alien can be seen salivating and there is also a short peek at of the xenemorph with closed lips?


    Screen it, because I don't see it.

    I just replayed the video again and the alien doesn't have lips.

    I know that PCs will always trump consoles in sheer horsepower, but connecting my PC to my TV really isn't an option. My PC is upstairs and my TV is downstairs. :P

    But you do have stairs right
    Yes, and I'm not going to thread a 800-foot cable out of my computer room, down my stairs, and snake it around to my TV.
    Or even more ridiculous, drill a hole through the floor of my computer room and through the ceiling of my TV room, just to snake a cable through.

    And even if I did either of those, how would I control my computer (which is still upstairs) while sitting on my couch (which is downstairs)?

    Valve's apparently looking into a cheap version of the Steam box which can stream processing power from your main PC. Not sure if that would be possible wirelessly, or if you'd need a long arse ethernet cable.
  8. Erik Lehnsherr
    That makes sense but I can't afford to do that, I just connect my PC to my TV.

    And I've got to advise you considering the specs of these new consoles PC is going to steamrole them.
    I really mean it, I'm not even being bias as I only just got my PC.
  9. Xenomrph
    I actually recently did that, but I prefer console gaming because I get to play on my mega-huge TV while sitting on my couch surrounded by my surround-sound system. :)

    I buy a good number of PC-only titles, but if something is available on consoles I'll almost invariably get the console version unless the PC version is drastically better in some regard.
  10. Xenomrph
    This game (combined with a couple others) might be what pushes me over the edge and gets a next-gen console. If I'm going to play this, I want it to look as good as it possibly can.
  11. Ultramorph
    We'll just have to wait and see. I'm just personally not buying their hype. I was really unimpressed with the " Creating the Alien" video. I just think we should manage our expectations.
  12. Ultramorph
    That point is true, but they do have something of a history of over-hyping games and then shipping them out broken, as has happened with almost every Total War game the last 5 years. Also, the stuff in the "Creating the Alien" video about its AI just rang hollow after CA said similar thing about Rome II, only for the AI to ship completely broken.
  13. Ultramorph
    This video really makes it seem like Creative Assembly gets it. This could very well be the scariest Alien game since AvPClassic (which scared the bejesus out of me, and still does).

    I hope so, but having just looked back at the mess that was Rome Total War II and how much CA had hyped up what a great game it would be (great AI, etc.), I can't help but be cynical. Companies, whether they're making comics, movie, or video games, have gotten so good at using buzzwords (CANON! ATMOSPHERE! THE GAME/MOVIE/COMIC FANS HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!) and blowing smoke up everyone's rear ends, especially when they know that their product is garbage, that I tend to take everything with a grain of salt these days.
