Q
As I understand it, my life is the sum of a remainder of an unbalanced equation inherent to the programming of AvPG.  I am the eventuality of an anomaly, which despite Corporal Hicks' sincerest efforts, he has been unable to eliminate from what is otherwise a harmony of mathematical precision.  While it remains a burden assiduously avoided, it is not unexpected, and thus not beyond a measure of control.  Which has led me, inexorably, here.

The launch trailer with that sound track from Moon is in my top 3 video game trailers of all time. It's perfect.
The visuals in the game; they got the look of the USCM just about perfectly recreated from how they looked in the movie.
The soundtrack
The motion tracker mechanic. I can't emphasize how much I loved this.
The Raven and the Crusher.
The multiplayer USCM customization, the weapon customization and the new weapons that were added because they felt like natural extensions of what we'd already seen.

The multiplayer as a whole I loved, but specifically the Escape! mode. This was probably the most intense game mode I'd played in a while (especially when you had two good teams) and brought me back to the Dead Space 2 multiplayer which I really, really enjoyed.

The Legendary Weapons and mostly everything about the weapons.

I hated that Hudson's pulse rifle was burst fire. I downloaded the mod that changes that to full auto and it was the main weapon I used on my play through.

I've tried to play through ACM 3 times but I never get much past the Derelict. Its just so unenjoyable that I can't take it anymore and go back to AvP'10 or Alien Isolation.

You only missed the worst ending boss fight in history.

I'm not saying it's *good*, but conceptually it's actually a lot like the final boss fight in the Marine campaign in AvPClassic.

The Raven and the Crusher.
I don't know how you feel about action figures, but have you seen the figures of the Raven and Crusher that Hiya Toys released recently? Because they're goddamn fantastic.

The shop I get my NECA stuff from has them in their Alien/Predator section and man, is it hard to not buy these things. They do look great and I think about it every time, but then I know I'll need to pick up some of the marines to go with them and then that might lead to trying to get their APC and I don't think I want to open the door to a 4th hobby  :laugh:

I found it really easy to pass on the Marines and APC - the Marines really don't look that good, and the APC is massively overpriced. Heck, I'd love to get the powerloader that Hiya Toys made, but $80 is just way too much (especially when the Crusher and Raven are roughly the same size and half the price).
