Was totally gonna order this, but apparently there isn't a PC Collector's Edition.

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

A Jason Terminator would be the ultimate weapon against those xenomorphs.

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!


I responded that it was nothing based on game reviews but solely that of collectors edition contents not being worth the extra money. No telling about the game itself

I canceled my ce after i seen this vid.. It looks like they went cod run and gun and has no alien feel to it like what they did to fear 3. I wanted to hold on to hope but ce will be 60 or less in no time... I really dislike gearfarts now. Run and Gun rambo style is the in thing... I think it reminds me of spec ops the line....

Actually, that doesn't look too bad. It looks like we'll see facehugger/chestburster action. I'ma wait for the reviews.

If you like action it will be ok but for aliens fans that love tense stuff this fails on it. They made it more cod/spec ops and left out what old school fans loved from the older movies. The feel of alone and when one will pop out freaked you out. This might be a decent mindless run and gun shooter with aliens but they seemed clueless why the older movies rule. It saddens me how they turned aliens into a cod type shooter. Oh well bargain bin for me unless the resin statue rules.

My opinions from these ingame videos. I hope i am wrong but people love these cod style games on horror movies which is a dying breed in games. AVP on pc captured the feel way back which is now a lost art.. Well close enough i seen yet. But hey 87 is pocket change right in this economy. I tried finding these expo pics of statue no luck any links?

This is based on Aliens though. People weren't alone in that movie, it was a squad of marines vs a shitton of xenomorphs.

If it was Alien: The Game then yes, but this is Aliens: The Game, which makes sense. It's a bunch of battle hardened soldiers going up against the xenomorphs. If it was Alien: The Game then you would be joe schmoe fighting for survival. The game would also be very short because you would die about 10 minutes in.

What were you expecting? RPG? It's called Colonial Marines for a reason. I think it looks good. It's a first person POV game where you control a marine within a group of others fighting along your side.

Not if you're Ripley. Just kidding.

I feel you. I'm not big on action for action's sake, and I genuinely want to feel like I have to fight for my life against the xenomorphs, Vasquez-style. Like, will there be scenes where the marines barricade themselves and will the power be cut in this game? (I'ma hoping, yes!)

Should be some scenes like that. A few of the trailers show the player welding the doors shut fps style. Im thinking this game will be more or less true to the movies (at least the first 2). I just think the game play will be more cod-ish rather than suspense and terror which is unfortunate.

Did you play the more recent Aliens vs Predator? Or the older ones even? The games have never really been survival horror in nature, and almost all of them have focused on the Marines. Short of basically making a Dead Space clone only with Xenomorphs it'd be very hard and not much fun to play a game where you had almost no chance of surviving.

Also, it's always different to be walking down those corridors in the game knowing a Xeno could pop out any minute than it is to watch footage of the game.

I have really high hopes that this will be the Aliens game we've all deserved for some time and that the lofty goals of being the Aliens sequel we never got will be accomplished.

That said, I doubt I'll be getting the collectors edition. Not at this price.

I'm still looking forward to the game, and am not cancelling my CE preorder. To me, it looks a great deal than AvP already, and the extras are still worth getting the game at release.

Wow people did not get what i mean by it at all... The tense horror feel is gone that was my point. It backs up another point i had about people love mindless run and gun and care less about other things. I guess i am to old school and miss the feeling of when am i going die. Even if with people it was just them alone and the odds are against them was huge this mindless killing hordes nonstop gets boring sooner or later.

This feels like i am on a government debate and i get smear ads. I will give my real opinion this game is for the average cod player and why i got all this hate. I see this day and age respect went out the door long ago. This game will drop fast cause gearbox is sloppy at code and will have to many bugs and its just mindless rambo i am god feel to it. Hell people these days hate hard games so maybe will sell good at launch then flop. My opinions deal with it.

The older avp i said had some feel to it and best it got so far. MP was amazing and felt intense ahhhh feel like the movies. I have no clue if it still holds up now i played nonstop on pc when it was new. avp on console zzzz marines side i enjoyed a little.

Done posting will come back when launched. I do not need another souless shooter even if killing hordes like l4d2 zombies. Ce will be cheap soon enough. MP will be dead fast like most games except cod/halo. Farcry 3 had soul which is rare these days. ACM might be a great shooter with mad bugs but this will drop fast so why I am waiting.

DS3 demo was cool as hell but the soul was shattered to add coop but a new soul emerged but is not the same deep down. I will wait for cheap price for that to.

Done posting in here most people on here are bored and are looking to bully people to make them feel better. Virtual Keyboard with mouse sucks to.

Have you seen Aliens? That's not a very tense movie, but it sure is full of action, and it's fairly fast-paced.

They were survival horror movies with action. The action looks there but survival horror does not. I love how people argue stuff that love to argue no matter what you say wrong or right they will argue. SD has more respectable people then here lately.

The cod trolls sure love me. Take a break from gaming and go outside to play. Tell the bullies picking on you i said hi.

have never used wal-mart to pre-order a game before usually do through amazon. I wanted to ask if they take payment upfront for the pre-order or place a hold for the amount or charge the final amount when the game is released?

I wasn't trying to give you any guff man, I was honestly asking what you expected? It's a group of marines going to secure a location with thousands of aliens running about. So I would expect the game to reflect that. Were you expecting something like resident evil? Puzzles and slow scares?

And how could you say the intense horror feel is gone by watching a 6 minute video? That's a little narrow minded don't you think? If you think about how long a video game is, 12 to 14 hours? You're making a huge judgment call on only viewing 6 minutes on a 720 minute game.

Also, you're wrong. I don't play COD. I play Battlefield. I've been playing every Battlefield game since 1942 was released. I'm more about simulation and strategy and less about team death match. I wouldn't make assumptions so easily or else you'll go through life being wrong about people.

Again, what horror was in Aliens? Alien and Alien 3 were horror movies, sure, but Aliens is not. The only time anything could be considered "horror" in Aliens is when characters didn't have weapons at all, like when Ripley and Newt are stuck with the facehugger.

Not that anything I say matters, I'm a "cod troll" right?

I just looked on my card statement and saw the charge as "pending" but not added to my Total statement amount due. So I guess it's---they place a hold for the amount and then finally charge that hold once the game is released.:oops:
