@2:28 - "Right now this video game is going in canon. This story line, all the things we put into this game are part of the official ALIENS bible.
You gotta be shitting me...
the stupid Spitters shouldn't exist in the first place because there's no need for them. For example: the Runners can spit acid. So I want to know why doesn't Gearbox have Runners?
Maybe they envisaged the runner to be too fragile for it to fit the role they had in mind.
If they truly think the Runner would be too fragile for the role, then they shouldn't be making this game. At least, not until they refamiliarize themselves with the films. It's a freak'n Alien for crying out loud. By default, that
makes it tough enough.
Speaking of which, why are the Lurkers suppose to be the fastest and most agile Aliens in the game when the Runners clearly fill that role?
Because the runners aren't in the game, not multiplayer anyway.
If they aren't in single-player, Gearbox should put them in single-player. Likewise, if they aren't in multiplayer they should put them in multiplayer. Not create a whole new Alien for a role that's already filled. Especially one with glowing "Hey, over hear! Shoot me!
" bull's-eyes on it's head. What was Randy and his team thinking? *facepalm*
The Spitters irritate me so much because Gearbox is always swearing up and down, "authenticity this, authenticity that
" when they're screwing up even the most basic Alien lore. I'm realizing more and more Gearbox wasn't the right developer for the job. The only thing they got going for them is the enthusiasm. Which, is starting to get annoying. I'm fairly sure we've all seen their interviews and commentary.
