Didn't what's-his-name who did the Nostromo schematics (that got lifted for the recent 'Alien' movie book that came out last year) also do Sulaco schematics? If they'd used his schematics as the Sephora that would have been pretty damn awesome.

Hell yeah, that's the one. :) If they'd included a high-quality print of that similar to the Nostromo one that came with the Alien book, I don't think anybody would be complaining.

Mikey Neumann in a recent interview has stated that Aliens: CM and Aliens Infestation are not related. At one point I think Aliens: Infestation closely resembled what A:CM was going to be in its early stages, but I think there is no longer a connection besides some of locations and names. Not saying it isn't somewhat confusing, but that's just what on of the developers official statements.

Interesting.  And flies in the face of the interview ikarop did.  I wondered how they were going to tie them together since they both seem to cover similar ground and timeframe.  And Infestation leaves the Sulaco clearly not in a position or condition we find it in CM.

Obvious proof that someone really has a strong hand on the continuity...  :laugh:

Not really... one is a side scroller, and the other is the official canonical sequel. They both happen in the same "time-frame" (the time of the colonial marines) but they aren't really related other than that.

Despite the makers originally saying otherwise.  The type of game they are is completely irrelevant.

Gearbox also worked with Ridley Scott but we aren't going to see anything from Prometheus in the game. The interview is a bit ambiguous, honestly.

Yeah.  They've been giving blatant hints there'll be some Prometheus content in there.

Whether they have the license to do so, I'm not sure.  Maybe that's contributing to the hold up.

Speaking of which, I wonder if the ossified Jockey will be identical to the 1979 version seen in Alien or be remodeled with the new Prometheus Engineer Chair Suit design.
