    I think it makes a lot of sense if they wore the dog-catcher suits since they're basically catching xenos at Hadley's Hope and in the Derelict. And the suits worn by the commandos look like good defense against firearms as well.

    Seriously, the WY commandos have such an iconic look. They look awesome - why not going along with similar designs when designing other types of WY armor? The only answer to that is that they don't want to pay any tribute to Alien 3 whatsoever. They've made that clear.

    And ditching the Runner is just unforgivable, especially when they do it in favor to introduce the uninspiring and cartoony looking Spitter xeno.
    Did they say they didn't want to pay tribute? I love me some Aliens, but the attitude over there seems to be the worst kind of fingers-in-their-ears fanboyism. Alien 3, for any of its faults, had some truly great, great stuff. I love the WY commandos, even though they arrive so woefully unequipped for the Runner (collar on the end of a stick, anyone?  :laugh:) and Bishop II was enigmatic. Just great.

    I belive you've missinterprited the "collar-on-a-stick".
    It wasen't for the adult Alien... it was for the queen inside Ripley.

    Bastards... They better give us a Runner skin as compensation to the fans of Alien³. What's next? They gonna delete ALIEN from Canon and say that only Aliens and...*disgusted look* Prometheus exist?! >:(

    No ALIEN is canon to them, just because without it Aliens wouldn't exist. Honestly hardcore Aliens fanboys don't give two shits about the masterpiece known as Alien...
    Reminds me of Angry Joe... "You can't have aliens without colonial marines!!!"  :laugh:

    It would be against Hicks' character to survive and allow Ripley to die on Fury 161 without attempting to rescue her.  Ripley saved Hicks twice during the course of Aliens.
  7. Predaker
    Yeah it does seem like FOX forced their hand on including Alien3 in their "canon story."

    When Hicks and newt died, it was sad but so were the deaths of everyone else in the first two movies. Except for Burke, lol

    I don't hold it against them for killing them off instead of keeping them in the third movie. That's the direction they decided to take, and the movie as a whole stood up on its own. I loved Alien3 back when it came out in the theater. It was a solid movie.

    I think its fine they change the W-Y mercs to wear real armor instead of the dog catcher suits, but the pulse rifle should shred them with the armor piercing explosive rounds. It would seem a bit unrealistic for a human to just stand there and take it, even with futuristic armor.

    I miss the runner from Alien3; wish they had incorporated it into the game. Maybe the lurker can be customized to look like the runner from Alien3? That would be cool.

    Anybody hazard to guess what WY soldiers look like? Or did that 4 seconds of screen time in Alien 4 garner enough attention to put them as a frequent  adversary? I'm sure someone who is writing a review of the game finally has something to write about? Its canon he'll say!!!!!It's legit. 4 seconds or 2 it don't matter. So long as its canon bible scripture newspaper printout.

    It just goes to show you something thats meant to be seen for a blip of second in the movie is likely to play an important vital role in this game. Horrible design and all. Baseball cap anybody? Mickey Mouse ears darling? CANONBIBLE!


    Gonna call a few things right now:

    Weyland Yutani are gonna end up being responsible for the mysterious egg inside the Sulaco... Hicks is gonna be found alive at some point... the unrecognizable dead body in the cryotube in Alien3 just belongs to some poor Company dude that Hicks threw in there while trying to escape from the ship.

    We are gonna fight a space jockey-Xenomorph... and it aint gonna be  a fully grown Deacon.

    And the story is gonna be hated by most due to it being terrible fanwank.

    (Interesting to see how many of these i get right when the game is released.) :laugh:

    Except the hard core "alien 3 isn't canon they killed hix'n noot" crowd. Hicks surviving is just lube for them.

    Of course! I mean, so far they've done everything to remove and erase all traces from Alien 3 so far. They pay no tribute to Elliot Goldenthal's superior alien movie score from Alien 3 (which according to me is one of the best scores ever no matter the movie). The W&Y Soldiers don't look like the ones from Alien 3 and the Runner xeno seems to have been exchanged for the utterly stupid Spitter xeno. Claiming that Hicks is alive is just the last nail in the coffin and the ultimate revenge for the little fan-boys out there who have been butt-hurt for over 20 years now.

    Weyland Yutani are gonna end up being responsible for the mysterious egg inside the Sulaco

    It was Bishop, He was a company droid anyway, He probably had time when Hicks passed out and Ripley rescued Newt... Thats probably why he left when he said it was "becoming too unstable"

    Thats my theory ;)

    I really hope it's not this - it would really undermine the whole point of the Bishop character. But if Gearbox do go down that road, I'd be very interested to hear what Mr Cameron thinks of it.

    The game is looking beautiful and everything, but there's one thing that annoys the tits off of me... and it's how bright the blood misting is, and how incredibly long it lingers. Every a human is shot, bitten, or clawed, there is just this awkward starburst of blood.

    that's what devs do when they have no time or resources to make wound textures or model correct mutilation.

    i call it "The Expendables" effect.

    The co-op has been mentioned in several interviews from NYCC, so I'm not sure what you guys are getting at. If you are worried they are removing it from the game, I don't see that happening.
  16. Bio Mech Hunter
    Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that GBX has distanced themselves from advertising the 4-player drop-in-drop-out co-op as a selling point for this game? 
    I have and it's begun to concern me. We all know what it typically means when a dev or pub starts going mum on a particular mechanic or feature they previously touted... 4 player drop-in/drop-out co-op was one of the things I was looking forward to most, too.  :-\ They better not...  >:(

    I can already hear Pitchford clamoring for another delay to remove ALL of this from the game.

    Yeah the Pulse Rifle sounds way better than it did in the earlier videos, it wasn't a deal breaker but it sounded like a toy gun before but not anymore.

    Hope to see more footage and hopefully singleplayer, if I have to watch any more off cam multiplayer videos or interviews with old footage I'm going to scream. :-X

    It occurs to me after seeing Bella in the first few seconds of the video how completely out of place she looks.
    From her Princess Leia mickey mouse ears  to her lanky unimpressive physique.  too comic bookish. She should be muscular, with a few scars. I mean she's not wearing anything under that chest plate or something? Give her a jacket.
