Oh c'mon, you know exactly what I mean.
I'm sorry, how should someone take calling the Predator franchise an "irrelevant corpse" other than literally, and as an effort to be coarse and belittling?
It's a situation where Predator exists as a starter or side-dish to the Alien Franchise, and that's not a healthy relationship for either partner.
Disagree. And often in AVP lore, Alien is the sidedish.
Predator inhabits the world of Alien quite a bit, but because Predator has no universe to speak of-
Because Predator inhabits the world of Alien quite a bit
Its only natural and organic when your merging Alien and Predator lore to include major aspects of each. And since Alien exists in the future, and the company... aka Weyland-Yutani Corp.. is such an intricate part of the Alien world, it had to be included... considering no such company existed in Predator, other than the US military and special divisions of said military. It would only make sense to bring in that intricate part of Alien, from a writer's perspective, when merging the two.
The net of it is though, nothing can change each other's mind, but let's try not to be rude about it please.
