It's like an ancient Lovecraftian cosmic god and wanted to indoctrinate humanity to its coming arrival...

In all seriousness, I wonder if that painting has Veronica Cartwright's likeness because of being based on test shots/concept art, from when she had been cast as Ripley.

Forgot to add: "which they refuse to milk"

So true

That was ment about bioenvironment of host. Embryo takes host's DNA to turn off organism's security and abruption. As other effects of this action, future drone's abilities are changed (some positive, some negative, depends on host DNA) and host-like look.
Runner's (A3) streamlined look is usefull for fast speed growing. In movie situation good speed is prior to drone to keep pace with Queen bodyguard duties, that is why Runner was so aggresive. If there's no Queen like in A1, than drone's behavior would have been standard. In games situation Runners perform scout functions.
The ridged head it was just molting process. As we know from AvP2 game, when there's enought time, drone molts to Praetorian. It changes pheromones and summons hive agression. Only few how was able to leave the hive before being killed they finish molting "at street" and return to hive. How old was Kane's son? One day? And how old was Hadley's Hope hive? Much longer (time to start expedition to LV-426, time to fly, plus 3 days when contact lost in the beginning). So those ridges just signs of started molting processes.

If I remember rightly the intent is that the embryo actually changes the host DNA so the host's body doesn't fight it off.

Absolutely vice versa! How small cell is able to change the whole body? It's too expensive, much easier is to change itself (one cell). If no, then there's no meaning in drone variations such as Runnners, Predaliens etc. That is why embryo borrows host DNA - only to hide. Other abilities like extrastrong or extrafast are consequense of that borrow.

Life example: When you run away from killers, you will hide in garbage can and dig into it, but never change the whole street. Maybe you're able, but they are running after you and you have no time.

So is here. Embryo is growing too fast to change whole environment, much easier is to hide behind host's security systems.

General Film/TV Discussion / Re: Texas Chainsaw 3D sequel
« Last post by Darkness on Today at 08:30:55 AM »
Poster has been released.



A prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre which will explore the origins of the horror icon in the 1970s, the story will begin with the Leatherface character in his teenage years. He resides in a mental institution until he joins a pack of fellow patients who all break out and go on the run from the authorities. The film will mark the eighth overall entry in the franchise, which currently includes, in addition to Tobe Hooper’s original, three sequels, a remake, a prequel to the remake and a modern-day “direct sequel.”

What is the purpose of its life though? It's not to gather pollen or make honey. It creates only in order to destroy. It is purely destructive. And in most cases things that are destructive in nature are also self-destructive. So it's not completely out of line that it would curl up and die once there's nothing left for it to do.

I'd disagree with that allegory. Nature doesn't really have 'destructive' life. It has predators and prey. Neither of which is ever really self-destructive, outside of a few examples of reproduction.

Humans.

Music / Dark Ambient

Anyone here a fan of this music?  I personally find it incredibly inspiring for my writing:

HuDaFuK, okay! Shure, you're right about Clemens, I forgot about that moment, my Humanhumanalien theory is a little diferent, but the main idea is the same as yours. I understand that Queen was a mutant. Okay. BUT! How the hell alien DNA got in Ripley blood?! Alien Embryo can consume host's resourses and DNA, it adaptates to be biologicaly invisible to host's organism until chestburst (when it becomes just too big to hide). Human embryo never changes mother, any embryo never changes host. If no, than Ripley, Cane and all facehugged become mutants already? What a bullshit? If you have one blood type it's no guaranty your mom has the same type. The law of reason and consequense.

Predators: The Lost Tribes. Yautja descendants have been stranded in Skyrim for thousands of years hunt on the edges of Tamriel, and live on the fringes of the harsh Nord wilderness.

Play as a Predator, or as a standard Skyrim race. Rediscover Yautja artifacts, weapons and armor lost in Skyrim. You can mix and match a lot of clothing and armor in Skyrim to create your own character and roleplay story.

Predators have stashed cultural gear in hidden locations. Drop pods are concealed or abandoned in the landscape. A Book found in the Helgen Keep Tutorial, outside of Helgen's keep and Dragonsbane castle will start you off and add points to your Map where camps of Yautja have settled. Beware, the Berserkers, Savages and Badblood Yautja are hostile headhunters and not friendly to outsiders. Fear not, civilized Yautja live far to the North East. However Yautja have also brought deadly Xenomorph species to the land as well and have established training temples and concealed communities hidden about the land.

OH MY SHIT! Is it real? I know what I'll do first when buy new comp :-)

It was a pre alpha footage of the Morrowind total conversion. It was awesome.

Meanwhile take a look at this



Never heard of Enderal :-(

I have completed all 75 achievements in original Skyrim - now it's the first and only game yet in my collection with all achievements! What a shame for AvP fan :-)
