Well, there are a great many things that could go wrong, and a ton of things that are already rubbing me the wrong way about the game conceptually.

But the one thing I won't say is that it was "Rushed." We've known about it for, what, almost three years now? And still don't even have a name? :D

As you say, anything could happen and while 'ALIENS - Colonial Marines' was in development for six years, it was still "rushed".

I’m just excited there is an Alien game on the horizon. Alien isolation did an incredible job capturing the essence of Alien. I hope this Alien shooter will capture the action and intensity of Aliens. I hope this Alien game captures of desperation felt in Aliens as well. I want to be outnumbered by hoards of Aliens, low on ammo in a cramped air duct like Vasquez and Gorman. Think there will be a queen?

Putting the awful enemy AI aside, even just in terms of design and story I thought Colonial Marines pushed things way too far there.

I'd be more interested in visiting a lab that was experimenting on Aliens and yielding all kinds of weird mutations a la the Newborn or the Neomorphs or the various Prometheus creatures than I would be in seeing dozens of Aliens that just have these radically different builds and "attack modes" solely for the sake of gameplay. But then, the random Aliens in Colonial Marines are just one symptom of a much larger problem that all trickled down from someone deciding that it would be a good idea for Hadley's Hope to still be standing.

Utilizing the pathogen from the prequels in the game would be a good way to get some weird genetic offshoots in there and up the enemy variety, I think.

We already knew this was going to be a thing two years ago and there's not going to be much of a game without variation repetition.

Which is why I feel like this particular style of game isn't the right fit for this universe. I don't have anything at all against games like this. I adore Destiny 2. But that is such a far cry from the sort of experience that I want out of a game with "Alien(s)" in the title.

Any experience that I've ever had in an Alien(s) game that's ever really felt true to the series for me has played up the horror angle and has forced me into tight, enclosed spaces rather than an expansive, open world.

I would love to be wrong and would be so happy if this works, because I do enjoy games like this and I obviously love Alien. I'm just keeping myself reserved for now.

I imagine that's what we'll be seeing in this one. Seems like the best option to give them some more variety and also remain constant to the lore. Unless they do just go full Kenner.

As you say, anything could happen and while 'ALIENS - Colonial Marines' was in development for six years, it was still "rushed".

Well, I guess technically that game was only really in development for like a year of those 6 years.  :laugh:

That's my hope. But I'm trying not to expect anything.

That's great news . The possibilities are endless with a conceptual design like Destiny .

If the game is made right then it could make other games redundant .

Considering how many hours I spent with Destiny , then this would be a dream come true .

This is a second chance . I hope the don't screw this up

I like that they are going this kenner route,with wild life and that its going to be like a shooter BOrderlands style or even Destiny so you got realism elements along side a great number of UI effects..Maybe it will be like ACM but 2.0?

Hell no! Need to stand as far away from ACM as possible! Btw multiplayer in ACM was also poor. I also don't like the comparison with Destiny or BL - they are a looter-shooters for no-life people. It will be better if game will be more like Left 4 Dead or Killing Floor or Rainbow Six: Siege/Payday 2, but with aliens.
