I don't really care what logo we get so long as the story's good.

Although I'd argue the simplistic, spaced out "A  L  I  E  N" logo is every bit as iconic as the Aliens one. Even recently, Life basically ripped-off the former on it's Blu-ray cover.

I like both logos.  Aliens had a lot more exposure over the past 3 decades, so it's arguably more iconic.  Even as it's own font, it's unique.  If you spell something out in the Aliens letters it is instantly recognizable where it's from, not so for the Alien font.  They're just blocky letters with no distinction worth noting.

The last three decades correct, but the future is now old man and it's the future of A L I E N.

No it doesn't really impact things in any way.  What it really comes down to is that there are for the most part, 2 camps of fans for the series.  There's the Aliens fans, and then the Alien fans, and they will be arguing ad infinitude over which is the superior and definitive Aliens film.  As an extension of that, they will prefer one logo over the other.

I think you forgot the biggest 3, people who love both Alien and Aliens....

I really love Alien The Cold Forge, Isolation, Alien, enjoy Aliens and Alien³- and appreciate Covenant and even Prometheus retroactively on a good day, I really love the whole franchise regardless of my often frustration with Resurrection, Prometheus and particularly the EU.

And I really look forward to Alien Phalanx.  ;D

It's all the Alien franchise,  after the first they are all incarnations of the original.

That said, if Ghost of Walt can find that Aliens inspired movies make more than Alien ones you can guarantee that is where the franchise will go.

I just happened to read Dangerous Prey a few days ago. It was pretty good.

Synopsis is up.

It's Medieval carnage meets Alien as a pre-industrial society fights against extinction brought about by a massive infestation of Xenomorphs.

"Ataegina was an isolated world of medieval castles, varied cultures, and conquests, vibrant until the demons rose and spread relentless destruction. Swarms of lethal creatures with black husks, murderous claws, barbed tails and dreaded "tooth-tongues" raged through the lowlands, killing ninety percent of the planet's population. Terrified survivors fled to hidden mountain keeps where they eke out a meager existence. When a trio of young warriors discovers a new weapon, they see a chance to end this curse. To save humanity, the trio must fight their way to the tunnels of Black Smoke Mountain--the lair of the mythical Demon Mother."
