Walter is American. David is British.

Thats because they wanted to create distinction between the two. Weyland-Yutani
probably have the largest cybernetic factory on American soil... :D

Which is a good idea. American Spock vs British Frankenstein.

Yay, something to look forward to.

I said Ridley will reference Frankenstein again...

Explanation of Victor's / Walters quote or perhaps Davids' :laugh:

QuoteVictor has tried to play God, has tried -- in fact -- to be like the Titan Prometheus, who stepped in to help his brother Epimetheus create humankind when Epimetheus mistakenly made all of the animals first, giving them all the "good" qualities (i.e. thick hide or fur to protect them, sharp teeth and claws to help them to eat, etc.).  Prometheus had to get creative to come up with qualities that would help us to be the best: he made us walk upright like the gods, and he gave us the fire that would help defend us from the cold and help us to cook the meat that our teeth could not otherwise chew.  Victor has tried to create a new human species, a species that he expected would "bless him as its Creator."  He wanted to perfect something that he saw as imperfect -- human frailty and fragility -- but he learned, too late, that human beings are not meant to create in this way: his creation turns out to be horrifying, perhaps in part because it was made by an imperfect (i.e. human) creator.  Thus, when Victor describes the dangers of striving to be "'greater than [one's] nature will allow,'" he also refers to the dangers of a human being who tries to play God. Victor's hubris results in tragedy for so many people, including himself and the individual he creates.

I think Ridley will again continue to play with this...
There is a certain possibility that many aspects of SCIFIED article could be correct.

Awesome. I guess this is going to be the footage they show at SXSW. I assume a short clip with Walter.

I think this one will be a bit ominous... because Walter is a straightforward robot...
After all he is the one to quote the lines from Mary Shelley's novel... Thats spooky by itself.

This is awesome. Im glad they are doing this sort of viral marketing. It was brilliantly done with Prometheus

Yeah, I don't want it to reveal to much about him.
