Quote from: SM on Sep 17, 2016, 10:23:01 PMWriting in video games is generally neither here nor there for me, and while I don't dispute it's always fun shooting Aliens, this was quite possibly the worst written video game I've ever played.(Also, as an aside, CMTM was published in 1995)

Quote from: windebieste on Sep 18, 2016, 10:06:40 PMQuote from: Local Trouble on Sep 18, 2016, 08:29:57 PMWas it your ideal sequel to Aliens?Given that it's already got a sequel, then it's still open for one. At least one in spirit, but let's take it in an altogether unexpected direction.After events of 'ALIEN 3', the crew of the Patna discover the location of the Sulaco. They go and investigate. A boarding party of 5 APE suited WY enter the ship and explore the empty vessel. They recover the ships closed and encrypted security recordings. On the return journey to their boarding craft to return to the Sulaco, they discover a few eggs - 2 are open, one is sealed. One of the Mercs gets face hugged and the other 4 have to drag him back onto the boarding craft and return to the Patna.Back on the Patna, the WY personnel are trying to break the encrypted recordings and discover how the eggs got aboard the Sulaco, which they find out by watching recordings of what happened in the dropship bay with Ripley battling the Queen. They find out that 3 proto huggers had been drop from between its legs and they hastily sped into safer places amongst the cargo. Other recordings show them growing into eggs and 2 of them opening. Meanwhile, the Alien inside the previously face hugged merc dies as expected and an Alien is loose aboard the Patna. The armed crew go searching for the creature not knowing that it has since grown by the time they find it. Having abducted several WY personnel and egg morphed them, the Aliens slowly begin to outnumber the pulse rifle wielding WY personnel. Even fully armed, they fall to the growing numbers - in desperation, some fire fights with the Aliens results in loss of life as acid blood creates hull breaches. APE suits, pulse rifles and Aliens; all fighting in cramped locations aboard the Patna - a nice fresh take that retains all the established concepts and adds a few fresh ones. Eventually, the Aliens take over the ship and Weyland (not played by Henriksen) is finally confronted by them. He is abducted and cocooned, the ship is now a hived up hulk, lost in space. THE END. -Windebieste.
Quote- It's WHY it was "late" to pick up Ripley and Newt from the processor, not because it had to "circle around because the platform was getting unstable".
