The Queen could see Newt because you could see somewhat through the grills.

That and the Queen saw where she went.

So that isn't strong evidence of alien telepathy?

It wasn't even that the crew was ill-prepared. They had freakin' laser guns, which according to the Ridleygrams, would have been able to damage the alien.

The problem for the crew was solely that the Alien had acid for blood. It forced them to take on a very dangerous game of flushing the creature to the airlock.

The unstoppable menace thing is one element people really need to let go. The Alien was never, ever, intended to be regarded as "unstoppable" outside of the fact that shooting it would have killed the crew via decompression.

However, denying that Aliens didn't trigger an outlook change on the Alien is also false. People misinterpret the "bug" stuff in Aliens as anything but a foil. The comics were horrendous about this. The Aliens in Aliens were much closer to an oncoming storm. They attack en masse, and in huge waves that utterly destroy their target. They will over come whatever you throw at them, they will bypass your barriers. They will cut the power. Firepower doesn't help you, because there are more aliens than you can ever hope to shoot. You are outmatched, and help isn't coming.

Aliens is still a very tense movie. The fact that people took the macho aspects and ran with them instead of understanding what was truly going on in the film, is not Aliens' fault. Every firefight is a desperate fight for survival. The aliens are definitely not "just bugs."

Either way i'm glad that they're going back to basics and making a genuine horror game. It's long overdue.   :)

Well said!
