FUUUUUCK!

I hope this means they could work on it more and make it perfect, if this is the case then I don't mind.

Did you guys see the leaked collectors edition photo?

Although this game is looking good,the originality is somewhat lacking ,mainly because these sort of Alien games have been done to death.
AVP1,2,3 and AVP on the ps3/360,all have the same vibe going through them.
Yes this game is concentrating more on the Marine side,but having looked through various vids on youtube of past AVP games and now this Marine game the whole atmosphere is extremely familiar.

AVP ps3/360 gameplay:Marine:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xb6Bxta9NMQ

Aliens: Colonial Marines gameplay:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUkVMlN2jhc

The only thing that stands out at the moment is the fact that there seems more communication within the C.Marines game,and the fact it looks more stylisitic.

Still looks like a promising game,but I think the novelty has weared abit thin for me.

That actually looks quite good, though I preferred having the motion sensor in screen HUD so it was always clicking away, rather than being forgotten when I dont have it equipped.

Graphically, that's much more impressive than the previous videos have been.

The lighting effects were nice. They might have even got the pulse rifle / Smartgun sounds correct this time. Maybe.

As much as I am sporting a semi about this at the moment, I feel the need to point out the distinct lack of any thing Vasquez shaped about the four names above! Hicks - yes, Hudson - yes, Apone - yes, Drake? For me - no!

That multiplayer footgage looks really good actually! Very Bf-y feel only with xenomorphs popping round corners at ya.


Can you play as Aliens at all in multi? Sorry if this has been asked over and over/=

You can go 3 types of alien, if I understood correctly.
I'm only catching up with news on this game now. Drake? Pah, give me Frost. Give me a giant playable alien/Jonesy hybrid.
Also, as a bonus there should be a hidden 8-bit game in which you play as Burke and run away from the aliens, with bonus points for sacrificing the rest of your team

Had a go at the mutiplayer at eurogamer today. It was really fun. Only played one game as the marines. the people playing the aliens were playing all day, so it was quite hard to get to grips with, but by the end i got a lot better in the short time of playing.

Definitely going to get this.

I was there too and was equally impressed with the miltiplayer demo, so now it's on pre-order...

What did you think to any of the other games at the show?

Im hoping this is good enough to warrant some Empire nights on a level not seen since BF3 or myself, Geest and Spek watching Hooch run off into the distance with an AK47 in L4D

Doesn't look good

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012-12-11-aliens-colonial-marines-preview-the-aliens-game-youve-been-waiting-for

I had a good feeling the aliens were going to be cannon fodder, but I hoped they would be smarter than the linear versions we saw in AVP3. Those guys had their routes so restricted it was too easy predicting where they were going and just had to line up my shots. I think the best option is not a straight forward first person shooter but instead a survival horror. A survival horror would make better sense because it's easier to capture the horror and survival aspect of the film series. Restrict the ammo, makes the aliens smart so they can use the labyrinth of the outpost and encourage the player to run. For example the aliens mainly stalk the prey and strike at the best possible moment. A lot of the encounters aren't straight forward charge attacks and it encourage the player to run when he is being stalked by multiple aliens at once. There would be moments when you encounter multiple marines and you stand your ground when multiple aliens strike.

Hmm, on the fence with this. It'll need good reviews and a decent price for me to get it.

Pretty excited for this one, looking forward to it more so than Dead Space 3 (to the extent, i'll be leaving DS3 on the store shelves this week).

I actually quite liked the Alien Vs Predator game that came out a coupla years back too.

Well, here is me now hoping that it is half-decent being as Shopto just charged my account and it will very likely be here by Saturday morning.

EDIT:- That will be Monday then!

I was unsure of getting it after gamers were saying avp2010 was better. I enjoyed AVP but I had to admit the game is only suitable for the fans of the series. Anyone else looking for their next shooter would be very disappointed after playing it. However I decided to stick to my pre order untill I heard about how bad the final boss fight was. I heard the AI was pretty bad but I didn't expect something on that scale. Watching the final boss fight on youtube was enough for me to cancel my pre order.
