Note to game developers everywhere: when making these videos, focus exclusively on in-game footage, stills of concept art, etc.. No one wants to see 2 minutes of artsy-fartsy cutaways of poorly groomed, pudgy middle aged white guys, nose hairs and all. Show us your product, show us your art and design work, and limit your personal involvement to a crisp, professionally done voice over. Hell, throw in a couple personal photos if you have to massage the ego a bit, but please please let the game be the star.

I'm waiting to be impressed Gearbox.

Instead of making this game similar to COD,  they should adopt more from the Battlefield games.  Everyone loves vehicular combat and then to throw aliens in the mix... just imagine the possibilities!!!

LUSTING after this game already... I'm particularly interested in the the PvP elements presented. I'd be interested to know more about the game types.

No wonder why the video industry is dying fast, thanks to these idiots who have no inspirations but just living off cheesy  franchises and rebooting flops in the past that deliver the same old boring themes and gameplay. Their enthusiasm is fake and melodramatic. Can't stand watching these clowns plus this sub par game anymore. Have a nice day!

We need some split-screen in this game. Otherwise, I probably won't get. I love games where I can sit on my couch with my pals, shoot things, and drink beer.

I always enjoyed playing as an Alien, I wish they would have tweaked that and made it less clunky, more streamline, it might just be me, but I find no joy in a plain old FPS in the Alien world. You guys have one of those coolest creatures ever, and your gonna make a game where all you do is kill it? SMH.

Being a huge Aliens movies fan, I really hope this game will be better than the garbage Aliens vs. Predator of two years ago. Gearbox guys are brilliant so I am confident

The Pulse Rifle still doesn't sound pulsey enough!

 @Seifer24 I'm going to be more than a little upset if it comes to that. I would probably never buy another game from Gearbox.

 @layhoma2004 Cheesy franchise? Go back to your shanty! Why are you even here halfwit? Did your Twilight DVD and Justin Beiber CD finally get too covered in your "manliness" to be playable anymore? Stop watching videos about games you hate from people you don't like and then complaining to people who don't care. If anyone is melodramatic, it's you. Good day sir.

 @layhoma2004 wtf are you even talking about?  This is a VIDEO GAME, not a film, you nut.  And "Aliens" needs a proper sequel anyhow, since the movies were pretty weak.  Stop being a negative nancy and grow up.

 @ChaosUndivided ever considered freezing yourself?? you could do that cryogenic freezing thing to yourself.. but be sure to set the timer correctly..... or you could end up millions of years in future like cartman

 I can't help but think exactly the same. The campaign will probs be really short and they will focus too much on multiplayer. I hope it feels similar to Dead Space though.

 @Subaru1980 im with you there, i love the Alien franchise but from some stuff ive heard i dont know if Gearbox is gonna do it anymore, considering ive heard them say they want to make it like COD so im worried

 @hyp3rknight Damn it, you're right! It needs to sound almost musical. ALMOST musical; like the barrel is sort of "ringing" as the pulses fire...

I am a huge nerd.
