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.

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.
As I recall those combat androids specifically couldn't harm humans - I remember the Perry novel mentioning the First Law of Robotics, and that having androids violate that was mega-illegal. So having combat androids shooting Aliens is totally cool, it's once you have them shooting at humans (like in AvP2010) that it becomes a Big Deal.
Incidentally I know you fought combat androids in AvP2 as the Predator and Alien, but I can't recall if you fought any in the Marine campaign. I think you did, but I'm not sure.

Would you say it was a positive experience or negative experience?
Definitely positive.

Is there any indication when the game takes place, other than a general "around the time of the Alien films" sense of things?
No specific year is given, but it's a beta.

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

What was wrong with AvP3?

Forgetting all the multiplayer problems, the single-player just felt repetitive and the plot was rather unmotivated.

Oh right, I forgot about Book 1; but as for Ash, I assumed that the remaining cables that attached his head to his body operated to some capacity.

I estimate $5 max, that's about how much Predators was when it came out, right?

I think I paid $7 or $8 for Predators when it first came out.

Omg, I wish I could play this game. Those side-missions sound like so much fun will be had!

This game just looks better and better I can't wait for it to come out. Will it be able to play on the iPad?

I would gladly pay more really. Part of the reason so many game studios are closing shop lately is the struggle to make a profit. If there were a way I could pay a company more than market price for a game I like, I totally would.

There's tons of "apps" that are legitimately great games in their own right, I'm not seeing the problem here. ???

I'd just prefer it been on a platform with trophies and achievements with possible online play, I can't see an App having all the qualities that I'd love to see in an AVP RPG, Real time strategy or any type of game.
