    Yea, I'm looking forward to getting this game as well. :toast: I'm hoping it captures me like L4D did when it came out. I couldn't put it down. :toast:

    *watches the trailer* TBH it's quite disappointing. Looks like an FPS full of action and big guns, not scary. Primal Hunt and Resurrection were scary with 5% of FPS and 95% of survival. Times changed I guess.

    Graphics look rubbish. It's all to edgy and feels like a cheap console port from 1999...

    Hmmm, I was eagerly anticipating this game, until I saw that. I agree with some of the comments. Seems to send a vibe of more action than horror, and if that chessy narrative dialogue and voicing is indicative of what we'll be hearing from NPCs throughout the game, I'm not looking forward to the acting either.

    Well - made it home from work and wathced the trailer. Sadly I have to agree with those that are saying the graphics look pretty sad and that the narrative is terrible:(
    Still have my hopes that the game will be scary and fun:)

    I bought a copy for me and a copy for my brother.
    I have very high hopes for this game.
    Never thought I'd see the day.
    This game is going to kick so much ass.
    I saw HD gameplay and it looks much better than some of those ugly videos.
    It could look nice and run nice.

    there is the ending for the game already up on YouTube (pre release), i don't know if its the full ending (8 min) but if it is the full ending i thing many will thank its a shitty ending.


    i'm not going to link to the ending because i don't want to spoil it for any one, but it is easy enough to search for if you are interested

    **edit** to help those who want to see it the YouTube channel is MrGlennDK

    I agree but its not gonna get much better man. Not until we have another industry crash or a new player enters the ring.

    I can only guess what a proper Aliens game would look like as a PC exclusive with something like the Frostbyte.

    It was left open for the DLC. This is a "saga" style game.

    I've been reading about some early game play on ps3 and Xbox "*cough* *cough*"..

    i really want this game to be great but some of the comment back were that it was not what it was hyped up to be. i really hope they are just trolling.

    needless to have i have pre purchased and will play it through with mussels and a few of his friends.


    Mailman,
    After watching the ending again it does explain one of the DLC's with "extra campaign missions"

    I expected this.. Unfortunately, this may be the last Aliens game ever made.
    Because the developers continuously shit on the game and try to milk it with shitty story and shitty graphics, add shitty game play and you have..wala...
    Shit..
    I hope someone slaps these devs in the face for ruining the aliens franchise.
    They better have this game fixed with DLC or something or it's the last aliens game I buy..
    Unfortunately.
    My name is Bishop in every game I play.
    I am that much of an Aliens fan..
    A Sad day..
