Love these podcasts, keep them coming!!
I actually only played AVP 2010, ACM and Alien Isolation recently because I took a pretty long hiatus from gaming to get my college degrees and start a family.
I am back into gaming a bit now and was really devastated when ACM came out and I saw all the horrible reviews that said it was the worst game ever. I bought ACM Collectors edition recently for dirt cheap on PC, and I was honestly pleasantly surprised!! It seems some of the major faults have been patched and some mods really improve the game play. Love the fan service, weapons, motion tracker and iconic locations & bug hunt! (wish there were more bug hunt maps!). Bull#@%& boss fights and story but I don't play games for a story, honestly. ACM is a keeper for me I have really enjoyed playing it.
I than purchased AVP 2010 after playing ACM and was expecting a superior game. I was a little disappointed, specifically in the marine campaign. The marines just seem to generic, like they are generic space marines rather than the iconic colonial marines I was expecting. The predator and alien campaigns are a blast. Overall a great game, just let down in the marine campaign and prefer ACM over it to play as a marine.
Just started playing Alien Isolation and I am very impressed, its epic in every possible way. Really hope there is more aliens games like this to come.
I really want to play as a colonist in Hadley's hope and see the alien infestation occur a la Alien Isolation style!!!!
Just my 2 cent!
