Looks like purchasing Borderlands 2 for 50% off was the better choice for me.
Hah yeah. They are on totally different levels. BL2 is awesome. BL 1 is awesome. Brothers in Arms is great...and then gearbox buys DNF ... and drops a turd. Says "we're sorry" and then gearbox buys aliens and drops a turd.
Ok, from now on I will see that pattern a mile away.
P.S. And how the HELL do you make UE3 look WORSE then UE 2.5 0_o
Am I the only one that really bought it for multiplayer? I don't really care about PS oto much...I wanna blast aliens away with friends.
No, you're not the only one. Too bad there are like...2 survival maps -_-
I know they are very different games but this game just reminds me of natural selection 2. It really is just the alien vs marine theme.
Except NS2 is a good game
If I had any talent I would be all about making an Aliens-mod for NS2, considering the engine is fantastic, and has a lot of the tools already in place.
I will take you on your word for that. I do love ns2.
It probably would not be that hard. Some one made a hidden mod for ns2. It isn't as fun as the hl2 version but one day it might be.
I read somewhere that an ex gearbox developer stated that the game was outsourced to TimeGate Studios and Gearbox only did the multiplayer part (which coincidentally, was the only thing positive based from the reviews). Sega however intervened the statement, and told that it was all Gearbox.
Doesn't matter. Will wait for it to go $3 3 months later.
im glad i saw some early game footage and then it looked like a consol port.
I did get the game and DLC for $50 which is a lot better then the $120 steam wanted in australia.
for me the most lacking part is the High pings in co-op, my brother and i were getting 4/500 pings where most things are getting 4/50.
personaly im glad i didn't follow the hype so i didnt have that far to be let down after playing it
unless you want fox breathing down on your neck
I believe as long as it's not monetized you are fine.
btw any one is capable of changing there headgear for female marines??
becus i can only for males..
fox could make money off it and they wouldn't so it would be a problem
Holy S#!t that was funny!
No I will get it for the single player co-op. The survival maps will be nice but I like co-op with plot.
I think one well know line will sum up this game...
"Game over man!"
The PC version is averaging 37/100 on GameRankings, 42/100 on Metacritic, with Meta user scores being only slightly higher at 43/100. Even GameTrailers, who's given a lot of overly glowing reviews lately, rated it only 5.9/10.
Over indeed, it was over before it started.
I just uninstalled it. Wish there was a way I could unlock the game from my account. I'd happily give it away.
Really, WDF were they thinking??
Check this Demo footage vs. final product
What the hell happened to Aliens: Colonial Marines...
Im a huge Alien fan, but I sure wont be buying this mess, even AVP2010 looks & plays better.
Let me guess, short campaign that's mostly an action corridor shooter vs horror game, twitchy AI, poor use of the movie actors for voicing, cheesy action game dialogue, aliens always running at you vs sneaking up on you, ridiculous boss fights, and a story and setting that nowhere near represents the feel of the movies?
Word is the game files on the PC version are pretty much like those of Dishonored, so at least it can probably be edited to look a bit better. Try setting bloom to False (looks overly glowing) and bumping Detail Mode from 2 to 5. I hear it also has an in game FOV adjuster, which is kinda surprising really.
That's an astonishing change
I played past the first campaign and then got bored. It's just so dull. And yes, it is just going to A & B while shooting aliens or mercenaries.
I played this last night and I agree that the visuals are behind the times but they aren't that bad. I have seen a lot worse. Knowing what everyone were saying about this game I went in expecting terrible graphics. It's nothing special or even good but it's decent.
Gameplay so far is fair but nothing exciting. The game doesn't grab me though at all so I doubt I'll play through it.
For someone that just has to play another game based on the Alien universe then by all means play it. But wait for a big sale.
Wow... just wow.
Gearbox need to apologise. Seriously if I messed up a project this bad in work I'd lose my job.
The differences between the Demo and the Final product are simply stunning. Its like they gave up on it in early development and palmed it off (outsourced) with only one instruction, get it out the door in any state by the deadline.
What a shameful mess. Anyone who bought on the strength of how the demo looked has been defrauded.
I hope that since the reviews aired that sales for this rubbish have fallen off to nothing. Maybe then then the publisher would get the message.
No matter what they show in that comparison video, it still would have been a crap game even if it looked like the demo did. Nothing can fix horrible gameplay.
They're going to have to drop the price of this game to $20-$30 soon, as it's really just a value game disguised as a AAA title by false advertising, and even if they do, it will probably be hard just to break even. They'll most likely lose money on it.
can't believe I bought this game man, its more like starship troopers to me.
