    Unfortunately the trolls killed this game before it ever even came out. I got hundreds of hours out of this game with friends. Just can't make some people happy I guess.

    Just an update: I officially change the closing time to Thursday night, hopefully by 7, but we all know how I am with that :p

    Keep the entries coming as well as the discussion about the Alien franchise, which has to include Prometheus :D

    I've only seen Alien and Aliens. Are the others worth watching?

    I recently rewatched Alien 3, and while it offers neither experience Alien or Aliens brought, it wasn't soooo horrible. Granted, I did watch the extended version which has changes and additional footage.

    Alien Resurrection is one I need to see again, but I recall not really liking it all that much. Not much tension or adrenaline.

    Prometheus, while not really an Alien movie exactly, is a nice addition, a prequel of sorts that sets up the universe in a way. I highly recommend.

    I will only watch the extended version of AVP, which has some more footage, which allows the movie to be more sensible or believable. I do love Predator and Aliens, but I think this could have been better.

    In AVP:R, while the movie wasn't too awesome, I did love the Predator. I think he was close to the original in style and look, which is the best

    Honestly I love the original Alien movie because it introduced us to the world of these Xeno's and their horror and insatiable appetite for death, destruction and domination once drop of acid blood and skull shot with secondary mouth at a time. And I mean...come on, blowing out through the chest for the first time or when the cyborg goes bad...awesome elements and a movie I watched dozens of time as a kid, I'm gonna have to go load up the DVD now! Thank god I have it on DVD I wore several VHS tapes out and I was always careful to rewind after each watch and would make sure to do a slow rewind at the end to ensure no tape breakage. Aliens is much more entertaining to watch! One of the few times where for me the sequel is more fun to watch than the original, but without Alien, there wouldn't be the rest, so Alien takes the cake!

    Aliens 1992 (Directors Cut). It helped explain Newt and what happened to her family much better.

    Count me in!!

    Count me in...

    I think it was the 1st one when the android gets ripped in to 2 pieces, although i thought the 1st introduction to face huger when they pop out of human bodys was kinda cool.

    I always liked the original Alien. For its day it was a heck of a spook movie! And of course it stared the awesome Segourney Weaver! I remember the very first time I watched that movie; made me jump more than once LOL

    With that said, put me in the drawing!

    Not too late. As it always happens, crap comes up and prevents me from ending and drawing when I had planned.

    Drawing will be later tonight!!!! Til then.......... :toast:

    But... I'm a little surprised that Alien 4 was your favorite ;)

    Awww, I'm like less than 10 minutes late. Oh well, I have too many games as it is lol...

    I feel dumb, but I didn't realize till just now there was more than one movie. I saw the first one, so it was my favorite. I think it was the first one. Favorite part was the concept of it, being at the top of the food chain technologically the predators had to create something to keep themselves entertained, something tough enough to give a real challenge, a fight that could be lost


    Congrats stinger, and manofthem is awesome!
