Looks like Walmart is the culprit selling the game early, been seeing a ton of pics showing it there. Just might have to stop by and take a look and see I can snag me an early copy even though I've already paid off the CE from GameStop  . Also I don't give 2 shits about all the negative fan reviews, I'm still stoked about this game.

The intro looks very cinema-esque.  I like it.

Still not sure if I prefer the way the xenos move in AvP2010 to this game though...

And why do the xenos seem to only attack one-at-a-time?!?

I'm gonna hold my breath until the PC version is available. This doesn't satisfy my expectations in term of experience (being 720p and xbox quality and all).

I'm totally stoked to pick up my copy at my local GameStop on Tues. And by the way IGN had a 2hr special with the creators and they played single player, multiplayer and they talked about the game and answered live twitter feeds. Check it out.

disappointed with 3 things:

the motion sensor does not appear to go off or make a sound unless you are actually looking at it.

aliens appear very week, the guy killed an alien by butting it in quick succession with his gun twice. seems like ammo isn't a concern if you can just tap the melee button over and over.

melee at best hsould be able to buy time for team mates to shoot the alien off of you and delay its time to tongue-bite you. and you should not be able to out struggle an alien easily, but with much difficulty, again to buy time not out power it.

(Parker vs ALIEN anyone?)

3rdly, the guy who blew himself up in the umbilical suddenly was really cheaply played out.

one, he only suddenly starts to grap his chest, nothing dramatic. then without a second thinking of his team mates, he calmy reaches for a grenade which happens to take too long since the thing bursts anyway.  just seems like a big TOOL moment.

surely it couldn't been written better.

maybe he shoots himself with a pistol and the bullet exits his head and ruptures the umbilicle making it unstable to the point of the story - forcing oneal and winter back onto the sulaco.

surely there couldve been better way..

Not so. It makes a single pulsing sound to alert you there's movement in the area. If you want to keep a track of it, then you have to bring it up.

Bit strange, really. Should keep the increasing/decreasing warning sound or get rid of it entirely. Doesn't seem logical for it to only give a single audio warning if it's already on.

11:20 shotgun to the face execution move ::) :laugh:

But the music is rather nice, lots of Horner cues in there, and those sounds sure are delicious. Rifles sound great and they nailed the Aliens too, from what I've watched so far.

Still... it's hovering in the meh range XD I bet multiplayer will be some fun as long as f**kers keep playing.

The no acid damage really is ridiculous. It kind of makes them... not very Alien. Go figure!

Kind of like having Vampires that aren't affected by sunlight *coughdawnguardcough*

I agree, there are some things I'm disappointed about (Graphics, though the lighting system makes for it, and Alien Warrior and squad mate AI) I can still see myself having lots of fun with this game. And a big round of applause to Kevin Riepl for the score! Sounds very "Alien". Facehuggers still scare the crap out of me.

Five minutes into part 8, major bug with two AI characters not being where they're supposed to be. Lol.



And holy crap the Warriors ARE TINY. Really damn tiny. I've sorta noticed it up to this point, but they are really short when they're running at the player. Their mouth seems to come to the players chin.


Looks like the lurkers decided to glitch too. One just hangs on the ceiling. The other two congo line and do a grab attack. Haha!

So far from what I'm seeing Avp2010 got the Aliens AI so much better along with the models. In AvP the Aliens actually climbed around on walls and ceilings to get to you before you could even see them and once you did they took a hell of a lot more ammo to kill. It looks like AvP did a better job at realistically portraying the Aliens including acid damage.

My main issues are the dialogue (which is trying way too hard to emulate the original movie's and failing at every turn), the voice acting (mostly just for Cruz... I mean, what the hell? The temp actor was better), and most of all, the facial animation... because it's non-existent. The mouths barely move, the eyes rarely blink or move, and I haven't seen an expression go beyond default. In this day and age, that's really bad-- last gen bad.

On the plus side, I like how the Xenos move and act, particularly the lurkers (except for when they just stand still on the ground), the score is fan-f**king-tastic (properly emulating both Alien and Aliens), and the environmental design is squee-inducingly great.

Hell, just go watch the Half-Life 2 E3 videos from back in the day. Games have come a long way from static faced characters. That's 2003/2004 stuff.

Getting conflicting reports from the people who've already played it. Is the Runner Dog Alien in the game? I'm still incredibly optimistic about the overall quality, in spite of the early reviews, but my unabashed Alien3 love is overpowering any other curiosity I have about the game so far.

No, there's no alien that matches the one from Alien3... you got standard Aliens Drones, Lurkers, who look a lot like the one from the first movie, and the Queen. As for totally new alien types, there's Spitters, Boilers, Crushers... and the very creepy Raven, which is basically a Praetorian sized drone with a skull face and a ridged top.
You can alter the color of your MP alien though, so maybe you could get a Lurker to look like the Runner by using a brown skin.

To be fair the Exosuit fight could have been awesome if it was more fluid and the alien wasn't so full of glitch by teleporting. The game doesn't even looks like as a BETA.

Well, it's cool that they build a section of the game around the Raven. It's not nearly as comic-booky as I was expecting. Nice usage of the power loader too. The only iffy thing there was the random teleporty bull, and some dehinging of animations.

To be objective here though I am noticing some of these players behind their walkthroughs to just simply be rushing through the game, for example in part nine of "Leeroy712Plays" walkthrough he completely misses the part where Hudson is hanging dead in the "Raven's" hive, it happens around 03:30 of part nine. I also checked out someone elses walkthrough that gave a preview of the derelict spaceship level of the game, and he basically rushed right on through it not even finding the time to mention the space jockey in the center of the room, or even taking time to notice it even, within twenty to thirty seconds he blasted straight through and continued on.

So that WAS Hudson! I was wondering but it was too hard to tell, since he moved by so quickly. That makes sense, meaning all the dead husks and boilers are basically survivors from ALIENS.

That part of the game actually looked tense (that and the run through the vents with the aliens bursting out of the ceilings...why didn't they chase after Winter though?) All the white, crouching dead xenomorphs made for a creepy setting.

All the rushing is too be expected, these players aren't the biggest ALIENS fans it would seem.

Can you provide a link to the derelict gameplay?

Everybody go to 1:25 in this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5sQl9_VMF4#ws (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5sQl9_VMF4#ws)

The Lurker is the best designed enemy in the game, bar-none. It actually feels like an Alien (aside from it's constantly give-away heavy breathing) and having to hunt for it creates a tense moment. This is probably the best example of its behavior I've seen so far, particularly impressed at how it tries to attack primarily from behind and then flees when you turn.

After seeing the god-awful waves of endless mood-murdering moronic Wey-Yu mercs and congo-line Alien warriors, this is a breath of fresh air.

I read your comment as someone thats intimately fed up with how every f**kin bastard that gets thier hands on this franchise just trashes it - 30yrs and it STILL takes Ridley to give it any credibility at all. I mean seriously. Watchin Alien as I type this, Ash just got his ass handed to him & god but I still can't stand Lambert.

Anyway, fuk this fanboy rant of a wannabe game. Just like Cameron, in one fell swoop Gearbox have screwed with 30 yrs of enjoyment. Anyone that gets this game is just supporting bad behaviour, though I hope people make up thier own minds

Agreed, although I'm not someone has is fed up with how the Alien franchise can't be taken in a good direction anymore, I don't think I'm that old, or that passionate about it to be in that mindset.

I will end up buying this game, but I'm not going to give any money to Gearbox and such, I'm planning on buying this game used and for cheap...that way, I'm just supporting my local retailer instead of a developer and publisher that clearly had no idea what they were doing. This is the first time I have ever done this willingly right off the bat.

The Let's Play of the Century has begun!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfoB8Z6vJyM#ws (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zfoB8Z6vJyM#ws)

Me and my friend did this with the comedy of the game's errors in mind (I've played through the game once, he hasn't). This is merely part one; we've recorded the whole way through. One the second mission we gain one more player, a friend of ours, and he sticks with us for the rest of the journey. My friend did the recording, which is why he comes through much clearer; I'm being picked up over Xbox Live. It only really dips when in cutscenes, but that's fine. After a while, it all kinda blends together. It would be awesome to give my friend a Subscription; he's finding a feel for the videos and aims to do some of the more popular FPS games; he's begun a FarCry 3 compilation as well. Again-- more subscriptions would really make him (and me) happeh to release more content. There's some really quite funny stuff to be seen...  :laugh:

Is there a way to swap out the "legendary" weapons in the campaign? Like I've got Hudson's pulse rifle but it completely replaced my regular pulse rifle, and I'm kinda out of ammo for it. Likewise, Hicks' Shotgun replaced my regular shotgun, and Gorman's Pistol replaced my sidearm. I'd kind of like to ditch those so I can use regular ammo pickups, but I don't see a way to do it.

Dude, I did the EXACT same thing. And guess what? Hold down the Y button (triangle if on PS) and ull see that u have access to EVERY GODDAMN GUN UNDER THE SUN lol. This whole time I thought it was only 2 mains and a pistol and I had all those others magically taped to my ass  :laugh: Such a shitty way of weapon carrying.

Ive read up on the whole "shoot the jockey in the head to see the engineer space battle" thing but Ive tried it every which way and nothing. Ive cleared the room, tried it on different difficulties and emptied clip after clip into the guys skull and nothing. No light show. Anyone have any tips?

Hey guys, awhile ago after I updated the game I lost all my progress in challenges and ranks, my abilities and appearances are back to the beginning does anyone know how to sort this out? Or is it permanent?

I have to be honest here, but there's just no way I can take the storyline of this game at all seriously; it contradicts too much. I mean, come on, Hadley's Hope is still standing after being at ground zero of a thermonuclear explosion? No freaking way. I can just about accept that the Jockey Derelict might have survived, but the colony? Absolutely not, that's just insane.

If Weyland-Yutani personnel were already onboard the Sulaco when it was passing near Fiorina 161 and the EEV containing Ripley, Newt and Bishop was launched, why did it take the Company so long to send a ship there to pick up Ripley?

And then there's Hicks' apparent survival. Are we really expected to believe that it wasn't really his corpse in the EEV in Alien3; that it was some other guy who coincidentally had the same injuries as Hicks, and was conveniently placed inside Hicks' hypersleep chamber by the Company when they boarded the Sulaco? This ain't likely.

It's total complete utter nonsense.
