the Make-A-Stand mode promises to be exactly like that.

I don't know guys... I'm trying to stay optimistic, but despite some very awesome stuff in the previews, screens, etc., I'm still seeing the same problematic patterns that have plagued Alien, Predator, & AvP titles for the past decade.

It's looking more and more like GB either lied about "doing their research" to make this the authentic "Aliens" title, or they just plain changed their minds. For crying out loud, there are basic in-universe details that are still getting overlooked. Or worse, ignored. >:( At least it's not coming out 'till 2012. So they still have time get this right.

I'm still gonna' buy it, of course. ;)

While its fun trying to keep up with ikarops rapid-fire updates (I'm sending you some beer, it will be in a Huggies box, don't panic) the Kotaku preview was extraordinary.  That's what I was really wondering about, the gameplay and the aliens themselves.  The story can fly out the window for all I care, I just want it to be realistic, scary, and infintely playable in the end.

I have to say my expectations are back up to the idiotically giddy level.  I'm glad they talked about welding, and it made it sound like you can weld any damn door you want provided you beat the mini-game.  Awesome.  The turret outline made me think that turrets can only go in predesignated spots, but that could be wrong.  Also scripted deaths are cool, but I really hope the aliens can have those awesome kills without a cut-scene :/

But... things are looking great.

That holographic alien at 3:15 is so siiiiiiiiiiiick.  Special edition should come with a mini card of that or something, such beautiful work.  The website appears to be up as well a random fan site? http://alienscolonialmarines.net/

Pitchford also talks about the improvised exosuits, with pulse rifles and flamers welded on (nice) and the importance of competitive multiplayer.  Sweet nectar.

Thats not the official A:CM site. Even though an magazine incorrectly called it one.
