Absolutely love Aliens. Sadly every game based on it, right back to the early 80s 2600 and Speccy games have been dire. It's always amazed me how you can take something everyone loves, knowing theyll accept less cos they love the theme, and still not even make a "decent" game. They even managed it with Star Wars with the Jedi Knight games and Star Wars fans are impossible to please.
This game looks like Quake4. Weirdly proportioned, slightly cartoony looking characters, dodgy gameplay and what looks like an atrocious framerate. Would love to be proved wrong but frankly I'd rather have Borderlands 3 set in the Aliens universe than this iffy looking arcade fps thing.
I for one will purchase this game and give it a chance. I do wish they would slow down on the sneak peaks..the best parts of the game will be old news buy the time it comes out..as far as graphics, if the game is good, then I can handle not so top of the line graphics.How many games of today have the best graphics yet are terrible to play or the story is rubbish...Hell, I still occasionally replay AVP2 the original and love it to this day..
Apone: All right, sweethearts, you're a team and there's nothin' to worry about. We come here, and we gonna conquer, and we gonna kick some, is that understood? That's what we gonna do, sweethearts, we are going to go and get some. All right, people, on the ready line! Are ya lean?
Apone: Are ya mean?
Apone: WHAT ARE YOU?
Marines: Lean and mean!
Apone: WHAT ARE YOU? HUDSON! Get on the ready line, Marines, get some today! Get on the ready line! Move it out! Move it out, goddammit! Get hot! One, two, three, four! Get out, get out, get out! Move it out, move it out, move it out! Move it out, move it out, move it out! One, two, three, four, five, six, seven! Aaarrrrr, absolutely badassess! Let's pack 'em in! Get in there!
Well, at least no-one can blame Gearbox for not trying hard to advertise this game. I've seen countless of diaries, trailers, ads and we still have 5 months for release date. I hope the game delives or Gearbox will face a huge sh*tstorm...
They are using the actors to sell more copies is all. This game can't stand on it's own as just a good game, it is going to stink when it comes out. It's a shame but it's true.There's something in every frame of every trailer where people go "wow i wish this or that was a bit different or a bit better". Nobody is impressed except fans of the movie and AvP games because it stinks.
Not ONE PERSON is impressed like people were impressed with a game like Watch Dogs wich only has one single video and barely even exists. The balls on these people to offer preordering on something on the quality level of a Half Life 2 MOD.
Well I'm going to get this game and I might just get the collector's edition as well, because I am a huge fan of films and the Aliens was my Favorite in the whole movie series so yeah I'm looking forward to playing this game in February and it comes out 3 days after my Birthday.
