Look boring as hell, it dont even matter if he cant play well. lol The aliens attack and run away, that is just awful and the beginning of what's wrong. Hopefully, it gets better but its publish by the low budget Sega so i dont expect it. As is I wouldnt even play it for free and i could.

MP looks like something I would attempt but I am more interested in the single player aspect.

only interested in campaign/co-cop campaign MP looks great but something i probably wouldn't enjoy much

Why do the people who demonstrate the game always suck at them? I don't think that guy hit an alien ONCE in the first minute...

Looks fun...Just not liking the scratch,scratch and dead thing going on, what happened to the retractable jaw death? One thing that seems like most games are missing is the way you die. Its gonna look a little lame to be killing a horde of xenos and then getting took out by an alien's scratch attack.

Looks good, fast.  Like the group feature and upgrades... Feb 12 2013... sweet

I dunno, I just hope this game is good.  Even decent.  Having xenomorphs pop out of nowhere could be great.. please don't fuck this one up, too.

When I saw the title of this video I though of that thing Hudson said straight away - "Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen" haha =P

 

I'm quite looking forward to the campaign of the game but this multiplayer really looks terrible in my opinion, another 'tacked on multiplayer' to 'please' more people =/

 

Should have used more time making the single player better.

They should stop wasting their time. Make an open world Alien RPG.

Not too shabby. This is simply TDM. This doesn't speak for the entire game. It's gonna be a survival horror/sci-fi game. Good time, but I'll wait to see a review.

hmmm, looks pretty cool, gives you a bit of a survival, feeling, but after all, this is Alien :)

Sadly this MP footage looks like a low budget F2P FPS.

 

Would have liked it that they didn't bother with MP and focused on the SP game, from what i've seen it didn't look too promising either.

 

I wont be fooled in to paying full price for over hyped games anymore.

Thank god for SP because the MP look weak and plus the guy talking does not help matters , sound like he does not know wtf he talking about.

looks fun.. the coop campaign will make or break A:CM for me though.. competitive multiplayer really doesn't matter to me on this one..

looks fun but they should really make a horror game out of the series

That looks soo cool!

This looks like an online multi-player that I think that I would actually play and I can have fun.

I can't wait to get Aliens: Colonial Marines!

Of course, this is still pretty early and that's probably why it doesn't look as great is it could. I suspect that they'll push it back to summer 2013 to polish it more. I just hope they add more xeno classes / upgrades and more weapons for marines. It actually would get old fast with only 1-2 game modes, 3-4 xenos types, and only 4-5 marine weapons; I hope they will do better than that.

This was a deathmatch vid folks, not actual gameplay of the game itself.

Not so exciting, actually, but maybe it was the sound with this video - massively overlapping monotone drivel.  Couldn't hear him half the time, couldn't hear what was going on... reality of E3 or not, this did not sell the game.  I'll be waiting for a better more immersive demonstration because this did it no justice whatsoever.

wheres the stealth component this looks like cod with aliens?  the whole thing about the aliens was they sneak up on you....they mostly come at night....mostly.

I want to be impressed by this, but I'm just not feeling it. That five and a half minute demo already seems repetitive.

Well the premise is certainly promising but I guess we'll just have to wait and see whether or not the developer hype lives up to the final product. Don't do a Prometheus on us and leave us hanging, huh Gearbox?!

I'm liking it.Stick together or die,if there or more modes to multiplayer I just may buy for that.

In response to the negativity: It's MY money, not yours. I know what I want, and I'll fork over that cash money to get it. If it turns out to suck in the end, It's my bad. Not yours.

"sigh". Must every FPS game have Multiplayer? This game doesn't need it, at all.

I think the first thing you notice in this demo is that the marines really are at a disadvantage. I say this because they have to rely heavily on point and shoot mechanics. This means there is a greater amount for human errors during gameplay. Where as the zenomorphs seem to operate rather quickly using simple melee attacks. I admit I love the genre, but where's the acidic blood of the zenos? Why do we not see the marines using melee weapons, like combat knifes, in this demo like other FPS's? I have yet to play AVP, and by the looks of it, I may just wait to play this one as well.

 @SunzyMan "Sadly this MP footage looks like a low budget F2P FPS" In terms of what? Graphically, the game looks fantastic. There are some animation issues, but that's about it. Gameplay wise, this is a single mode that's being shown. TDM is not exactly exciting and new, regardless of game.

 @naomha1So you are saying that deathmatch mode isn't actual gameplay??? Or you mean that this isn't the single-player mode?

 @brandonabe So the quality of a game in your eyes, directly relates to impact physics of shooting or mauling people? You'll need to elaborate a bit more if you want to make any sense.

 @DarthLod You would make Aliens.... Colonial Marines.... WITHOUT multiplayer? I'm glad you're not in charge. Multiplayer adds life and community to a game, plus it's a frikin FPS.

An FPS without multiplayer is like a driving or sport game without multiplayer (nonsensical).

 @JoshuaK1980 Pitchford said something about not having acid blood in the E3 demo, just for the show (it is in game, and deadlier than before- you have to use bleach to neutralise it before it eats through your armour and kills you). Combat knives probably not a good idea against alien ;3

 @vassago_ No I don't, can you think of a good FPS where enemies have no reaction to being hit? In the last 15 years? If you don't think this game is lazy, then you're one of the idiot fanboys I mentioned in my previous comment (which said fanboys kept flagging till it got deleted... lol, [proving my point)
