lol, don't put AvP World down.

You know it was awful. xD I think I've still got the files on my PC. And my never-launched V3.  :P

QuoteI definitely was more into Predator once upon a time but now? I like the character more I guess but I like the Alien franchise as a whole.

But yes, the Predator will be coming back in the new design, definitely.

Really? When did this happen? You were always Predator guy in my memory!

Found this thread and went and listened to the first podcast. Absolutely loved it

"The only exclusively Alien podcast of its kind"?

I've tried listening to a couple of these and I can't take them seriously.  The latest one for instance towards the end they're talking about the various films and how it's just their opinions and people shouldn't take it personally - fair enough.  Seconds later 'Everyone agrees Alien Resurrection was dogshit and worse than both the AvPs'...  And they seem to consistently push the erroneous line that Prometheus was generally disliked.

From the point of view of our podcast being Alien and Predator, they have a point.

I thought that too - but they talk a lot about Blade Runner, Star Wars, one episode is devoted to The Martian, etc.

I think my issue is there is a tone of authority that isn't really born out in the content.  And if that authority isn't there, then enthusiasm for the series - the whole series - goes a long way, but that's lacking too.

Not that it's a bad podcast; just not my cup of tea.

AVPGalaxy is still the number one source for all things Alien. That's my perspective and why I keep coming back.

Definitely, there is no other source with so much depth and ease of use.

Yeah they do dislike Prometheus on that podcast but I don't take them too seriously lol. I'd rather that podcast exist than not, makes for a bit more entertainment.

That's fair enough. I'm sure they'd appreciate you dropping some feedback down on their page. I try to feedback as much as I can.

That will be never change, I can assure of you that.  :) In all seriousness though, I appreciate the love. Thanks guys.

I don't agree with everything the fellas say but I enjoy listening to them. It's interesting to hear some other perspectives. They come from a different part of the fandom, a different area (WYB Facebook group) and while I dislike Scified and how they operate, it's interesting to hear how that other area is different.

I submitted a request to join WYB on Facebook 'cos me old mate Darrell Curtis is on it, but after listening to the podcast, I didn't really think we were on the same wavelength and cancelled it.

I tried Scified as well, but visit less and less due to a number of the longtime posters being very precious about their (often intriguing) opinions and aren't very welcoming to other points of view.  I mainly go there now 'cos xeno_alpha07 moved the brilliant Weyland Yutani Archive there.

You dug AR and Promethus, but you didn't like either AvP?

I'm far from alone in rating Resurrection and Prometheus above the AvPs.

Nah, I don't think you'd really like it there.

Yeah, I've seen some of your exchanges with the denizens.  :'( I'd actually offered alpha some hosting space here for the Archive but he'd already accepted Scified's offer. I'm not keen how it's just looks a part of their usual template.

My first AvP website. Around the same time, Darkness, myself and The Ultimate Predator, all started our own websites. We all ran independently for a good few years until we all eventually joined up under the Galaxy banner to run this together back in 06/07.

It was an absolutely terrible looking website.  :laugh:
