Q
That gun image seems familiar, almost like it's an amalgam of the Lacrima-99 from Resurrection and one of the WY weapons from 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' or something.

It's straight out of ACM. It's the Wey-Yu assault rifle with the flamethrower attachment equipped.

Do let us know if they eventually worked out what the Pulse Rifle looked like :laugh:

Will do.  :laugh: I'm hoping that was just a slip-up in the details, though.

I've been reading more on the publishers and the concept of an Augmented Reality book. I know some of Marvel's comics toyed with them but I never bothered with them. However, I'm curious to see how it's implemented here.

I checked out some of their other AR titles and they seem to review well.

Augmented Reality can be legitimately super cool if it's handled well.

I received my review copy yesterday. I only had a quick flick through but it looks like they sorted this. Will double-check later. I had a go on a few of the AR things too. There's videos that play "on the page" through the app and there's a bulk of about 8 AR "activities" in the middle of the bulk.

I had a go on the egg analysis which was fune. And I tried one where you had to land a dropship. Controls and perspective were a little hard to get the hang off but still kinda cool.

Well, well, well.

So the artist used my ALIEN Egg untextured sculpt picture: http://www.zbrushcentral.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=271906

Can anybody show me further scans of the book. Would like to dig there after.

Thanks.

I checked and it's been replaced with a section on the Assault Rifle. The Pulse Rifle gets a bigger spread later on.

Bonus points for that then :laugh:

Without your knowledge? Is that not... theft?

Saw the book and the egg picture today the first time. Super lame actually.

Yeah. I donĀ“t mind if I get asked, at least that should be possible, as the picture which is used is only on the web with my signature.

Here a comparison gif:

I believe that may even be the model used in the AR video.
