Quote from: HuDaFuK on Sep 09, 2019, 10:19:52 AMI've always said I'd really like to see a straight up war story featuring the Marines fighting human opponents sans Alien. Gritty and realistic in the vein of Private Ryan/Band of Brothers.I was hoping at least one story in Bug Hunt would go down that avenue, but alas they didn't.

QuoteWell, by that logic maybe people should stop making stories all together?

What sets Aliens apart is the fact the marines are shooting at Aliens. Having Saving Private Ryan with space marines means we're seeing the same story - but with space marines. You need Aliens in the story - Xenomorphs or something else - or you might as well be watching a contemporary Earthbound war story.

Quote from: SM on Sep 10, 2019, 12:05:51 AMBut marines are popular. And if you're going to have Colonial Marines - or the army for arguments sake - fighting other people in the Aliens universe - why bother? Just make up some new IP.
