After all of Gearbox's utter fumbling of canon, I'm quite happy to have a game that can't even HOPE to fit! So Amanda Ripley met the Aliens eh, chaps? Of COURSE she did. (Rubs chin)
As long as its a good game, I'll take any old rubbish in the story department at this juncture. Oh, and the film wasn't up to much, but I though Mary Winstead did a great Sigourney Weaver in The Thing, so if you wanna get her on board, that'd be just dandy.
