    Yeah it was nice to see the official Alien channels much more active than they've been since 2020. But also was disappointed with the lack of a DBD chapter or audio drama announcement. Finally seeing something from the set of the new movie though was really cool.

    They've kept framing it so you don't see the window till the very end which makes me think it was very deliberate

    Also, poor hat guy. Guess that's what you get for tricking your way out of eating marmite covered branches with vinegar

    I mean, is there a better thing to do in your leisure time ?

    I watched this one so many times and it took me till now to notice a visual gag of there being a window in Mr. Bean's kitchen meaning his guests saw everything he was "cooking" there

    Might still be coming, I mean that evidence was there. They usually have the big licensed chapters for their anniversary which is in June. I believe their next livestream is in May when they'll be announcing that chapter so it's possible we see it then. Maybe they just want to keep the hype closer to release.

    Quote from: Cosmic Incubation on Apr 27, 2023, 01:45:42 AMDoesn't seem like we're getting the Alien chapter for DBD either. At least not today  :(

    I'm kinda surprised at that. Seemed like such a sure thing. I'm disappointed we didn't get the Audible though. :(

    I had a blast! Was great going to see Alien and Aliens again. Was another showing of the 4K Alien, and I've only seen that the once. I'm a peasant, I don't have a 4K TV. I'd gone with Shevvie, and it was his first time seeing Aliens on the big screen so that was great.

    I'm glad to see we got a little tease from Romulus, and the new pre-order trailer for Dark Descent. The Limited Run announcement was a huge surprise too.

    I played the new Fireteam map with some friends. Nothing special lore-wise (not even new voice overs) but the map was really difficult with Xenos coming from all directions. We got our ass handed to us on Intense.

    Happy Alien day all. Hope everyone enjoyed their time watching/reading/playing/listening. I finally fired up the Audible/Dirk Maggs Alien River of Pain audio drama. It's pretty fine for licensed fan fic, but there's one moment that took me by surprise.

    Happy Alien Day everyone!
    I think this is my first Alien Day as a non-lurking member of the site actually!
    Always look forward to this day that celebrates my all time favorite film series, especially among fellow fans.
    Hoping to see some cool announcements today!

    "Alien: Isolation modder Matt Filer has released OpenCAGE v0.10 allowing the import and creation of custom maps in Alien: Isolation"

    Community made content keeps gsmes alive. I cant wait to try this out.

    I really hope dark descent has community campaign/map tools.

    Fireteam elite could have been so much better if we were allowed to make our own content
