BSPs?! In my AvP?! Hell no!

Gotta admit though, the game looks fun.

It is nice to see the BSPs once more integrated into the actual plot of the AVP universe; I was half expecting to see them only in Predator 4 and any possible Predator sequels, this is a welcome surprise.

I'd have to disagree with you there.

As far as I am aware, Rodriguez didn't want PREDATORS to be part of the AvP universe. The BSPs really have no place there. This is probably something of stand alone game rather than something which could be considered a part of overall AvP continuity.

Well, I like the fact that the BSPs are here cause it reminds us that the BSPs are a canon part of the universe, not something that can simply be tucked away in 1 small category; but I guess that's why you might hate it. :(

Depends on whether you've been following the A:CM development.

Good. A:CM gets a bonus just for that. I hate combat droids. Especially in AVP 2010, they were annoying as Hell.

"I'm here to fight aliens and predators, not robots."

Well, didn't AVP2010 state that combat androids were illegal?

If you want to get into a continuity and canon debate, PM me a message. Be it on here or on PSN. I would be more than happy to discuss it with you but this is a discussion about the game.

However, I wouldn't consider this game to be canon with the AvP Universe. Don't get me wrong PredXeno, I agree with you that a lot of the EU is canon and all of that but I also follow the Word of God trope too. So in this case... I just have to disagree with you.

But as for me playing the game... Yeah, I'd play it. I just have to get an IPhone or a Pad.

Sorry, didn't mean to start another one of those canon arguments; just wanted to tell why I'm glad the BSPs are in this game, but that I also understand why you're less than thrilled about it.

This looks really cool. Also the storyline is intriguing from what we know.

The link doesn't work for me. :(

Sorry - my fault.  Should be right now.

Maybe in video games, but that doesn't seem to be the case in comics.  Or some games for that matter.

Actually, I think those were regular androids; I think combat synths are specially designed somehow for warfare, that's probably why they can still walk with their heads shot off while normal androids can't.

There are two different kinds of combat synthetics.

I know the ones in Aliens vs Predator 3 were hinted to be made from corpses from the human staff of BG-386. The Audio Journals even mention that numerous staff members were missing and somehow more combat androids seemed to show up right when said staff members turned up missing. One staff member claimed that he saw one missing staff member being turned into a combat android.

Just saw this trailer like a minute or two ago, and it completely destroyed my low expectations. That was actually pretty cool.

This game looks awesome! Sad I missed the sign up for the beta.

Super glad the stuff from Predators is being incorporated into the larger AvP franchise, though a bit disappointed it looks that the Pred Hounds are going to be something associated with just the Super Preds instead of the the Preds in general.

I wish I could talk about this game since I've been a part of the closed beta, but I can't... :(
Is there any indication when the game takes place, other than a general "around the time of the Alien films" sense of things?

I also remember some conversations from the game indicating that it was against the law for combat synths to look too human and that they had to be recognizably synthetic from a distance if they were combat synths.

In which audio files did you guys hear about all this? I've collected all of them and don't remember any of this stuff. ??? ??? ???

Given that they're using a bunch of stuff from Predators in the game, does anyone know if there's any Prometheus inspired elements incorporated as well?

The combat synths not looking human conversation is between characters and is not an audio log. I believe that it occurs during one of the Marine campaign levels when you first run into combat synths.

Finishing kills, being able to summon facehuggers as the Alien, awesome plot; this is what AVP2010 should have been.

You might want to see my posts to PredXeno regarding on the BSPs being intergrated into the AvP universe.

Prometheus would work better in the AvP universe than Predators but... What I said about PREDATORS kind of applies to Prometheus in some small way.

What was wrong with AvP3?

Aliens Book 1 had combat androids as a major plot point.  Then they pop up again in Stronghold.

And Ash was doing okay against Parker with no head.
