I'm currently reading Alien Prototype
OMG the hell of a book to read during a pandemic - the novel features a Xenomorph that is the carrier of a very nasty virus.
Enjoying it so far.

Quote from: SM on Mar 27, 2021, 11:58:55 AMMass Effect takes so long to get going, that once it did I lost interest in what the actual point was.

To be honest the first game's pretty rough in general. The story and characters are there but the gameplay is mostly crap and often a real slog. The second one was leaps and bounds ahead of it.

Kinda reminds me of Uncharted in that regard.

Haha ya I re-read it last year right at the start of lockdown and it definitely hit different than when I read it upon release during "normal" times.  :laugh:

I have just finished reading Alien into Charybdis.
Brilliant read - no spoilers but there are curve-ball deaths that shocked me as much as the Red Wedding in Game of Thrones.
Look forward to see where the climax from this novel leads to.

White I think is the best thing to happen to the franchise in a while.

That interview solidifies Alex for me as the number one influence on the franchise, I do indeed hope he and Noah collaborate as suggested.

I have enjoyed reading Aliens Infiltrator.
Is it just me or do the Xenomorph specimens in this book put me in mind of Gremlins 2 the New Batch. Love the albino Drone variant.

I can 100% see what you're talking about

For me personally, I'd start out exactly when they were released and move up. There's several books in this series and going to the best ones will only detour you from reading the rest. Start with The Earth Hive trilogy and move up from there. If you're going to commit than it needs to be fully!

Thanks for the list. I started reading "Prey" and I am captivated. Learning so much about Yautja culture.

Gentleman Death

Alien Origins (2.5/5)

I didn't go in expecting much of this novel so I'm not surprised that it was just ok.

Foster set up a grim earth and I like that he developed more of a background with the company. Now, if him and Patt Cardigan could get together I think they'd make a pretty cool world with all these entities outside of the alien itself.

Gentleman Death

Alien covenant ((3/5)

So... it's been a long time since I've read a movie novel but I remember reading some when I was younger and liking them because they offered more insight and scenes to the movie, pretty much expanding on the source. (I could be wrong though)
But this did not do any of that, it's just a copy and paste of the movie and less dramatic. So I was pretty bummed about that....oh well...
