I wonder if "Male and Female" is for humans only, if they're going to toss in some female Preds just cuz.

I believe "Male and Female" refers to Marines; at least that is the context in which Prodos posted.

More good news from Prodos:

In fact Steve Perry is our story writer

Ah, in that case not so much Space Hulk as Space Crusade, with the Aliens replacing the hobgoblins; can't hit shit and die in droves.

I think SiL's post was more of a cheap-shot regarding Perry's tendency to portray Aliens as ineffectual swarm/cannon-fodder creatures in the Aliens/AvP books he wrote. :P

I don't entirely agree with the sentiment, but it's certainly not without merit.

Hey, in the Hobgoblins' defense, I totally nailed a space marine with one of them once.

IIRC the xenomorphs took over Earth in Perry's trilogy ...

Q
There is a bit of a discord between how they behave on a plot level and how they behave as individuals/swarms though, iirc.

Having said that, I read all the Perry Aliens/AvP books as a kid and haven't revisited them since, so I'm not the best judge of such things.

I know. But I don't know why you're offering that distinction.

Q
Because Perry didn't have a choice in the matter, so it doesn't make sense to give him credit for having the Aliens achieve that.
