I'd love to see some detailed shots of the figurine or some video of it (not an unboxing necessarily).

They show photos try google. I got preordered newegg 85 shipped the extras make it a must. The loader alone rules. :lol:

It should be a fun game for local-op through the entire campaign I presume.

I want this game to be really good but the more stuff that comes out the worse it looks. I keep thinking it'll be more AVP than we're hoping it will be. AVP was fun but it was still a let down


Agreed. I love the Alien franchise and I really want this to be good but I have yet to be impressed from anything I've seen. Gameplay looks mediocre, graphics look mediocre, could care less about multiplayer. Going to wait on reviews and go from there.

Friggin Nintendo. Anybody want to buy a Wii u lol


Good luck getting anyone to meet up with you to buy it with that psycho-looking avatar of yours. Not to mention your fantastic attitude.

As far as the game, I don't know what previews you all have seen, but I think it's looking good. The Left 4 Dead style multiplayer should fit well, fingers crossed.

My deepest hopes for this game have just dropped yet another notch. It wouldnt even be that hard to make this an excellent game but i fear we are going down the avp path again which itself was a straight rip from the old computer game which didnt do very well.

This is one game I am not going to be covering in my blog as this looks like it will kill my wallet for an instant failure. Just saying.

The sting of AVP is still fresh in my mind.

Already preorder at BB, otherwise I would be all over this. One of the few games this year I'll be buying on day one. Apart from some dated graphics, everything I've seen looks great

Saw this game in action at PAX East last year. I was really pumped to see it but was left feeling a little disappointed. I was hoping for a dark, creepy atmosphere like the films, but it came off kinda cheesy with the dialogue... Gameplay looked fine, but with a franchise like Alien they really should nail the atmosphere and it didnt feel that way. Hopefully the extra time this game got in the oven helped it be a better game. I'm holding out hope anyways.

Dunno how that's relevant, Gearbox didn't make that, and with their success with Borderlands I don't see how this can turn out as awful (people bring up Duke Nukem, but they were handed a rotting Frankenstein carcass that they were told to dress up and make it look pretty).

AVP1 and AVP2 for the PC are still the best Alien first person shooter games by far. Alien Resurrection on the PS1 is a close third.

AVP3 was dog crap.

Colonial Marines looks like it will be mediocre at best. When killed, the Aliens explode like a shook up can of Mountain Dew.

If these CE last a month they will be $69.99 to $79.99 on sale somewhere. I will bite on the standard release. The statue (toy) looks worser than the old kid toys from back in the day. I rather just buy a xenomorph figurine somewhere. imo still looks like a awesome game.


Those Kenner Alien/Predator toys from the early 90's were actually pretty well made. Sure, they created a 2nd series that diverted quite a bit from the original Giger appearance, but the original figures were a good representation of the film. The Queen in particular looks good.

Damn. I remember seeing a preview awhile ago that made the game look promising. Since the game is heralded as a sequel to the movies, the biggest thing I'm looking for is a narrative/experience that does the series justice. Although, from the looks of it, I'm not getting my hopes up too high.

Well, to be honest, it is a licensed Hollywood IP. Anything Hollywood has their hands in for some reason turns to shit. I will eat my words if the game actually does well, but I have absolutely ZERO faith in it as of right now.

I really really want this game to be good, but I don't have a good feeling when the set is discounted before release. It IS possible to make good licensed games. We are aware of this after playing games like Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and Wolverine. As cheap ass gamers, I'd bet 98% of us will wait for a $14.99 or lower price if it's just a 2nd rate shooter.

There's no need to rush this game because there's no movie tie-in in theaters. I really hope the developers put the time and effort into this game to make it great. If so, they will get my $59.99 or my $86.77 if the CE is still this price after reviews come out.

Does anybody remember when this game was originally supposed to be released? It was delayed quite a few times and I thought it was going to be another Duke Nukem.

No game is going to be like another Duke Nukem. Delayed 6 months or something is nothing like 15 years.

You'd think this game was one of the worst ever produced from reading this entire thread. Nobody's even played it here, I take it, yet...but judging from the consensus it's time to cancel preorders!

Well to be fair Aliens Colonial Marines has actually been delayed since like... 2004.

(The entire project got scrapped at one point I think, but it was like in 08 or something that it was reannounced under Gearbox's wing. And then it got another delay when they tried to push that unfortunate AVP game)

I'm getting the game for PC, and I'm thinking about picking up the CE for ps3. I'll hang on to it. I'll consider returning it if money is tight or there's a cheaper CE or whatever.

I'm a huge fan of the Aliens franchise, but I'm still sketchy about this game. With so many BB reward zone coupons, I will roll the dice on a pre-order.

Oh well, good job getting me to wait for a Steam sale price.
