Oh, that Wii-U version is going to be the best looking console version huh? Gosh I know I'm looking forward to seeing it! Oh wait...
Why there has to be a hit marker?? :o
And why the reload animation is wrong? In the movie Hicks just shows that u put a new magazine in "...and you are ready to rock again"
Or the sights on top of the rifle...wtf? there were no sights.
Motion tracker is too slow too :P
If they are so accurate of the authentic stuff, why do something like that?
sry for whine :P
I'm kinda exchillerated that I think the same as him, l4d is not only the last good "asymatrical" game between monsters and humans, but the ONLY one. The ONLY flaw that l4d has is that it promotes individualism. headshots and skeets shouldn't be in A:CM ever!
I just hope the game is fun... I don't care how long the campaign is as long as I feel I got my money's worth out of the entire game. I just got AvP (new one) and I'm enjoying that so I hope getting this isn't a pitfall from that. We'll see as more comes out though but this is on my wishlist for the time being.
And to honest , the producers are talking tooooo much about how good this game are , BUT sorry, the graphics looks just average and the texture don't give the ambience looking real world but a CG world , now what really worry me is the gameplay time for campaign , if at least no 10 hours game ..... gear box will loses all my respect ! and please , change this art cover color .
PLEASE change this ART cover , this half white HAVE NOTHING to do with Aliens World , IT'S UGLY ! what a POOR SENSE ! The first black art concept was far away better .... COME ON , who say love the Aliens movie and want to keep the atmosphere in the game , the Art cover it's a very IMPORTANT part of IT , and this HALF WHITE contradict ... start from there ! .....
What a great interview :) and Randy Pitchford seems like a really nice guy and passionate about what he does, CANT WAIT!!! :)
I am so baffled by this story, I thought it would be all over every website on the planet hat the Wii U had finally been confirmed by a named dev (that's actually working with the darn thing) that the machine is more powerful than current consoles (and that's better graphics too, btw!!!). Isn't this the exact question everyone has debated for so long? And yet, here we have the closest thing yet to official confirmation from Nintendo themselves and nothing but a few minor blogs seem to have picked up on this.
Also, the AI seems very slow and unrealistic, that is one thing that CANNOT be present in an alien game...
I am following this game, so far so good. The Wii U is not my thing, I am PC. As far as the game goes, I need alittle more.
I've been looking forward to this game, I love Aliens (movies/games) and I'm hopeful that since the last Aliens game (Aliens vs Predator 2010) had DX11 option this will too, though admittedly, I've not heard a lot of news about this upcoming game, but in watching some of the videos, what little I've read, I've not seen/heard anything to make me 'psyced up' yet. Actually I'm kind of worried for the game. I really couldn't care less about wii-u so long as PC doesn't suffer because of it.
I watched that video where aliens attacked the base and they set up one of the turrets and nothing I saw on that video made me eager for the game, even though the guy talking on the video was saying good things about it - I was wondering if he was trying to conveince himself or us? -lol.
***Hoping*** it turns out o.k.
this game looks good well, ok.. and this guy certainly talks the talk but something just doesnt feel right, almost like im listening to a car salesman.
also the pulse rifles fire 10mm explosive caseless ammo, so why in every gameplay footage ive seen half a clip needs to be pumped into each xenomorph? 3/5 shots max should take one of these down. wheres all the ammo going to come from? this better not be a mindless shooter where endless fields of xenos get churned out to kill you. even tho to get one xeno you need one human? isnt that the whole reason why they left the sentry gun scenes out 2000 rounds of ammo 150 colonists? ok familys so what 300/450 xenos max? also isnt hadleys hope a little.... completely wiped of the face of lv426?
i really hope this is good but im not gonna hold my breath.
This guy is keen on making people hiped abouth a game.
The fist thing I noticed in this intervew is- THIS GAME NEEDS BETER AI!!!
AI is one of the most important thing in a game like this!
The aliens need to be faster, smarter, more agile and more challenging!
Take more time in the AI and graphics, other than that, the scene that is also one of the most important things in a game like this, seems to be prety good rigth now!
And of corse I didnt forget the GAMEPLAY!
"most worst" or not, it's a developer who's speaking, not a random fanboy found in a local walmart. I have high expectation for nintendo's future, for once!
He is a "sheep" a nintendo fanboy..........lol.WiiU controller is the most worst controller for FPS games.
Love the choice of wording and timing when he says, "its the best shooter controller I have ever used.................................................................on a Wii"
Everyone likes to point the finger at duke nukem, but if people remeber that game was suppost to come out like 10 years ago. Yeah gearbox could have updated the game and changed it up but if you read the intervies with pitchford he stated they put the game out more to have it put out. not to reinvent the franchise or to get it going. Yeah the game wasnt the great however if it would have came out when it was suppost to it would have been a great game. These guys have been putting out great games and you knock them for putting out out duke nukem to just plan stupid. Yeah dnf wasn't a game changer but it was never suppost to be.
ya know im on the fence about this guy....Borderlands, absolutely awesome.....Then he sells the shit out of that horrible game Duke Nukem Forever..
I would imagine it's more of an inconvenience to look away from the screen to check the scores, rather than just quickly press a button and see them flash on screen...
I've kinda lost a lot of respect for Randy Pitchford since Duke Nukem Forever.He claims he doesn't want to milk a franchise, what is his excuse for the awfulness of DNF?
I just thought if they really wanted to make this good they should give multiple paths of story mode play, like go this way you see these set pieces , maybe you crawl into a vent and go another way leading to other set pieces :O
I wonder if there will be a DLC for another race like the Predators, or the cryptic Pilot aliens from Prometheus?
Developers milking a franchise and not putting 100% in to the game. WTH ?? Like when has that ever happened. This guy is so cynical.
Game is looking good but even as a total alien fan I think it might be a few years too late.
Alien Trilogy was a good game, the aliens pretty much hunted you but this - Aliens: Colonial Marines, from the videos just looks like any other FPS game out in recent years but the enemies that would be human in those games have alien skins in this game.
I would rather a survival aspect to the game, this just looks little boring and doesn't stand out as something new.
@OneMoreJedi Just reading your post there makes me sad. Have you played it yet? Its utter, utter garbage. Randy Pitchford has been lying through his asshole the whole time.
@billlabowski 8:25 there he said ''best looking out of the console versions'', you should watch the whole video before making comments.
@billlabowski Well, they are probably speaking about consoles, because what you said is common sense. BUT the PC doesn't offer quite the same experience, the Wii U has the tablet like controller, which, according to countless devs, changes the game immensely.
@parkurtommo I don't know, would you continue to run at somebody while he shoots you a couple times? I don't think so.
@deano2096 very true, and is it me or should Bishop's legs have been sucked out of the airlock with the queen? I cant remember if it shows them after that scene.
@AtariKidX "most worst"... Hmm, seems like that is the 'most worst' grammer i've seen. :P
He says you will have the option to do it, it you prefer. He does, and he has played it so...
@giancarlod sounds pretty convincing to me, I'm pretty sure he has been green lighted or told to say this to clear it up by Nintendo ahead of e3.
I seem to remember that sold rather well even if it was bad that doesnt make him anyless of a skilled speaker.
Man your dumb if you listened he said to him he said best looking on a console.
@blackwing55 of course it did ,there were millions of hyped duke nukem fans which thought that was good most of them probably pre ordered it ,i stick with my pirated ways ,nowadays most game are shit and not worthy of my money ,i'd have to be filthy rich to play all these massive amounts of games which aren't that special every single one copies each other ,they wonder why all this piracy ,well at least console players are forced to buy the games ,long live the pc ,these games pirated are worthy enough of my time but not worthy of my money .
Yeah "long live PC", I'm going to continue to pirate and send us down this trend of bad console ports, crappy drm, and less and less dev support. Yeah, go pirates...!
