That Alien model/skin is beautifully detailed, and I don't care what the explanation is, I love that it's so huge.
I do hope the finished product will be considerably more gooey and dribbly, though. And in my opinion, even the first set of teeth shouldn't come out from behind the lips until it's closing in on prey. Think of it as a huge black uncircumcised penis from hell and you can't go wrong.

The Alien in this reminds me so much more of the alien from the 1979 film than aliens from previous games.

This is a good thing.

Only Nemesis during 12 hours...mmm, wont work



Not completely true, there are hints and clues in the articles that provide more information that suggest there will be other enemies.

Yeah, more WY merc-droids  8) 
Nah, 9/10, story wise, it'll include one of the teammates being an android much similar to ash in the first film. If this is the case, it kinda takes authenticity away from the game truly being canon, no matter how relateable to the source material it is. I mean c'mon, both mother and daughter being attacked by a WY android that just happened to be there for the sole purpose of retrieving the alien?

Isn't the main company in this game someone other than Wey-Yu, though?

Which, by the way, I'm very happy with. There's other corporations in the Alien universe. I'm glad someone's finally been able to grasp that concept.

Unlikely, all of the release character images released so far show the original Weyland-Yutani logo on their uniforms.

Yeah it's Seegson corp. I guess one of WY primary competitors.

I too like the idea of conflicting organizations.

This! Would love the see the alien with it's lips closed, always thought it's very slow teeth reveal in Alien was one of the creature's finest moments.

And lol @ huge black penis from hell!

Those characters from WY just go to the station owned by the other company because it may lead to info on Ellen Ripley's dissapearance.

Btw really cool they kept the old style logos. Did anyone else notice the cans of beer with either WY or the other company's branding on it in some pictures?

I like the idea of multiple corporations too - I always imagined Weyland-Yutani as one of several companies that controlled the space trade.  Like in Ron Cobb's concept art there were references to one of the crew member's former employers called Farside Lunar mining or something.  I hope there's references to that or the Third World Empire/United Americas in this game!

However I must admit it kind of annoys me that Sevastopol space station belongs to Seegson.  Yeah, I've heard in the news articles that Seegson corporation is a wannabe Weyland-Yutani. But why would the architecture and design of the station be identical to Weyland-Yutani's Nostromo interior? That's like downright sue-able plagiarism.  And the game is basically saying you're not really walking through a Weyland Yutani spacecraft, it's actually a knockoff by some other company you never heard of.  Maybe we're meant to assume a third party manufactures all the ships and space stations? Ehhh....

Xenomorphine

It's often upheld as a film series which shows a darker side of Capitalism, but if just the one company has a monopoly on so many things, that's not really the same kind of economic system. Capitalism thrives on competition.

That kind of makes sense though, wouldn't it?

The spaceship manufacturers of the future would be the car manufacturers of today.

I suppose that does make sense. 

I just feel like the Nostromo being a product of Weyland-Yutani, and not some third party manufacturer, works well enough.  The Nostromo has many Egyptian (the rounded corners or tan ridges) and Japanese elements (the space suits, most prevalently), which goes right in hand with the Weyland-Yutani winged sun logo or its Japanese heritage.

I guess they wanted another corp from the beginning and if they changed up the architecture we'd all be complaining about not getting to see a truly ALIEN inspired set.  I'll probably get used to the strangeness of Seegson owning Sevastopol.
