hmmm..... gotta say its really hard to not get a little excited. Seriously what are the chances of severed dolls heads scrawled on with the name "rebecca" all showing up at several gaming reporters offices? Unless this has to do with the DS game coming out lol.

That isn't the way GBX handles PR. 

What if this thing was sent out by a fan who is fed up with waiting for more news and wants to motivate some sort of response from GBX?  Anyone can send a doll to press but only GBX can distribute real news (of which we still have none).

I'm just sayin...

If it was one doll then maybe. But the fact that its more than one doll and they all decided to put up their articles at about the same time makes me sort of think its all planned.

Post by: Ash 937 on May 27, 2011, 05:45:17 AM

If one guy drops off multiple doll heads in boxes at the postal service, chances are pretty good that they will be delivered at around the same time to the recipients.  GBX aren't the only kids on the block with the know-how to mail multiple packages at once.

I don't care about doll heads.  I don't think there is anything brilliant or original about this gimmick.  I just want more news and a release date at this point.

I don't know why anyone would think this to be a fake when video-game and film companies are constantly using such marketing techniques. You only have to look at the extensive mail marketing the Dante's Inferno publishers carried out, posting objects of each sin in the run up to the release of the game. Heck look at the examples over at Joystiq. There's no doubt in my mind that this is legit.

I thought Creative Assembly has been working on their side scroller for some time.  If it's the same game that was showcased in the footage that was leaked onto Youtube then it is actually quite old.

I'm not quite sure how to measure the scope of a stunt that simply mails a few doll heads to a few addresses in the United States...but I don't think I'd describe it as "big."  Like I alluded to before, the only thing worth paying attention to at this point is the delivery of real, actual news about A:CM.  Every other stunt, gimmick, and promise is pointless to me.  I've simply waited too long and my patience is too worn to get excited about a doll's head.

Creative Assembly is making the newly announced game that is supposed to have a Dead Space feel and be more related to ALIEN than ALIENS. They only just recently got the new space to start hiring a team to build the game so there is no way it is for that game.

Way Forward is making the side-scroller that may not even be released. We don't even know if this is being released plus its simply a side scroller on one platform, a handheld at that, and is probably not worth the money to do the doll stunt with.

It may just be ALIEN and avp though.
They never said anything about it and considering they haven't even hinted or mentioned the idea of a Predator only game I think its just avp and ALIEN. Then we all know Predator only games suck cause Predator is completely dependent on ALIEN.

Have you played Predator:CJ??

If they never said they'd consider a pred only game it's because they don't think it's going to be a success at this time, not that they can't make the game.

And no, predator is not completely dependent on alien. Or what ever.

Whoa whoa whoa there. Concrete Jungle was alright. In fact, it was pretty good. Flesh that idea out with a darker tone and Arkham Asylum style approach and ur good to go.

Well,thats not for sure.  I mean, the Sulaco is iconic of Aliens, and though this is a Syd Mead print, perhaps they just meant to show off the Sulaco, and not the Syd Mead aspect of it.
