I am hoping they add a multiplayer to this game and hopefully its a lot better than Aliens vs Predator 2010!

They have to. It's gaming suicide otherwise. I think its just a case of waiting to find out (other than co-op), what sort it'll have.

What i dont understand is how did the Orbital Nuke of LV-426 go horribly wrong?It went ''Bang'' Didn't it.Even the Nostromo,i hope they tell this story well.After Duke Nukem im gonna be a skeptic,not putting all my eggs in one basket.

There was no orbital nuke.

People seem to forget this because of the exchange of lines between Ripley, Hicks and Burke. "Nuke the site from orbit. Its the only way to be sure"

Obviously a orbital nuke would have been more effective than the reactor malfunctioning, but for the sake of this game, Ripley and company didn't think of that.

For the purpose of the game, the reactor's explosion still would have killed all humans at the colony but who knows about the Xenos.

People, "Nuke the site from orbit..." means drop a nuke from orbit, not detonate a nuke IN orbit...

We know.

The only time you detonate a nuke in orbit is to disable a wide array of communications with your emp, which would cover a much broader area (it is actually what MI for the US is most afraid of, instead of terrorist detonating a nuke within a city since at a certain height even a tactical nuke could disable a huge portion of the eastern seaboard, or if you placed one high enough in the atmosphere the entirity of mainland usa).

To do damage to an enemy who needed no tech to keep coming after you however, a direct strike would be neccessary.

I read that the explosion of the reactor went mainly upward, so the colony was not destroyed, but heavily damaged, and that large underground portions of the colony remain unscathed. If I find the article I will post it, unless someone already has.

Not an article. That came from our Q&A with Sega and Gearbox during E3: http://www.avpgalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=39083.0
