Happy Alien Day to all of ya!

Even though it was quieter there was still some nice artwork and shares going around.

Hicks' Alien Trilogy stream inspired me to mess around with some emulation for the game, and I must say I got it looking pretty good! Hopefully a 'Let's Play' for that one is in order.

So.... no Audible audio-drama announcements?  Not even a whisper?

The Fox licensing department looks very different to how it did 12 months ago.

As SM says. Until they rebuild after the merger, I wouldn't expect any big stuff. What's being announced now is that was already in place.

Even though it was quieter there was still some nice artwork and shares going around.

I was pleasantly surprised! Without any official announcements, it was still a very busy day! I was glued to the Twitter feed and it was always active. It was really nice to see it trending. Alien still makes some noise!

Yeah, the footage you sent me was much nicer. I was always keen to just do it "authentically" but I just think better looking is more preferable now.

I hope everyone had a good day, whatever they were doing!

I hate to be negative, but I tried listening to the AVP Perfect Organism podcast and I couldn't get through 15 minutes.  Not only do I not agree with their opinions, the other guys on that podcast are pretty annoying to listen to.  Hicks, you gotta make some more on your own.

I think Hicks is doing his best. As usual.

As for PO guys: I haven't listened this commentary yet (there was surprisinhly a lot of content yesterday) but I found the first episode of their so called Shit Show about AvP to be fun and engaging. I guess, I just enjoyed their more light and positive approach 'cause whenever I hear someone talk about AvP lately It's mostly giving the movie shit about how dissapointing it was.

Did an Alien Day YouTube collection video. HUGE Alien, Predator, Engineer, Marine, & Weyland Yutani armies. INSANE ARMY BUILDING!


I shot 2 videos, one shorter version (8 minutes)


One longer version (24 minutes)

I totally agree. Hicks was just a special guest on this particular podcast, and I thought he did great.
The other guys were annoying.
Hicks' own AVP:R commentary was much better.

Um, who're you agreeing with ? Nevermind.

I don't think they were annoying, they just didn't took it as seriously as people here do because they're not fans of the initial premise ( Alien versus Predator, I mean). At the end of the day, site's called AvPGalaxy so AvP as a concept is taken into consideration as well as Alien and Predator while their show's called Perfect Organism which implies Alien, only Alien and nothing apart from Alien. So when they eventually get to talk about something else they just don't hold it to such high standarts. I had a lot of fun listening to them.

To be quite honest, AvPR commentary that Hicks and Co did while was quite enjoyable and fun left me a bit pissed off at the end when RidgeTop tried to evaluate the movie saying that it at least better than The Predator with what I just cannot  agree. Sorry, RidgeTop, nothing personal, just difference of opinions.

But I agree that they need to do more of these.

Did this quick little sketch last night in (belated) celebration of Alien Day.


Thanks also to AVPGalaxy for liking the post too  ;D
