Amazon

 

Gamestop (Xbox 360)

 

Gamestop (PS3)

 

(NOTE - Even though it says "Online Only", my local Gamestop had the games marked down to $5.99 in store)

 

Not a great game, but it is only $5.99. Not a terrible price for the curious.

It's playable but games like this have so much potential and the fact it falls so short is sad.

Although I have been constantly warning CAGs about this game, but at this price, it's worth a go if you are remotely interested or have some prospect of playing it in co-op.

Must be flying off the shelf at amazon. Now says in stock, but may take 1-2 days to process.

Great price for a fun game. Buy 2 copies and play co-op with your friends.

Actually what DNF was released as was mostly 3D Realms fault, Gearbox just polished it up and salvaged what was there and pieced it together. Granted, NEITHER product should have released for $60, but DNF wasn't really Gearbox's fault completely.

 

Just wanted to say that.

 

GS actually dropped Aliens to $5.99 a month or two ago, but it's still an alright deal for people who didn't get in on the times Amazon Digital had the PC version for $1.99. The main campaign's dialogue is practically unbearable, when i re-played it for achievements I turned the voice volume all the way down and that alone increased my enjoyment by 1000%.

 

FYI: the Stasis Interrupted DLC, while not excellent, is miles better in terms of level design and plot delivery compared to the main single-player campaign.

Heard lota good things about this game from CAGs. Bought the CE version for $10 at GS weeks ago and didn't regret one bit. Crazy not to get it at this price.

And for those who don't know, it has full campaign couch co-op as well, so you can save a few bucks by buying one copy.

Not a bad deal, especially since the DLC vouchers in the collector's edition have already expired :bomb:  

To the pound you go.

Eh, I'd just as soon put him down.  

I'll never understand why people want to pretend to be fictional characters (or a dog?) online.  

Though I did admit I did get a chuckle the first time I saw him  ;)


well i asked whether you stood behind your opinions and you said "Always" so i offered up the same bet that i gave to Fire Thief. You think the price of the xbox one will drop to $300 + 2 games by end of year? Let's put a bet on it.

Yep, had a blast on co-op wonder where all the "used" copies from all the $10 CE`s went.

Thanks for the heads up, OP!  I can confirm that it's in-store, too.  Grabbed a sealed ps3 copy at Gamestop while I was out.  Was stickered at the $5.99 price.
