Wow. I don't have a console but I want to buy one just for this game. I like how they're trying to make it the sequel most people wanted after ALIENS.

I thought Aliens: Extermination looked like a really good game, but I think it was just a shooter. This one looks like it will have a good story.

Yes it is. The developer said it would factor into gameplay.

Get ready for a delay. No chicks in multiplayer. People mad.

No shit. Vasquez wasn't a character but Drake was. People are just now putting this together?

Don't know why anyone cares. Game has bigger problems than a lack of tits in dudebro multiplayer.

Why don't they just cut their losses and dump this shit out already? The game is a failure. Just move on and focus on the next, hopefully better project.

To be fair, the Alien series is kind of known for having strong female characters, although I'd be more up in arms if the campaign was lacking in that department. Doesn't seem like it matters much for multiplayer.

I dunno, it looks okay, I guess. Graphics look terrible, so are the animations. Gameplay didn't look like anything too amazing either. If it wasn't for the license, I don't think I'd even be interested in it.

Comes out 2/12, anyone preorder it?

I'm on the fence and not sure if I'm gonna preorder it or wait for reviews before picking it up. Also Walmart has the CE for $86.77 beating Amazon/BB's $99.99 price.

I really hope this succeeds and does well. for such a well known and followed franchise and popular movies we've should've had a "Aliens" game decent long ago. It'll be interesting with Gearbox in charge to see how this does.

For me I'm on the fence mainly because history hasn't been to kind to "Aliens/Predator" in the video games part though there was success in the PC end. On the plus side from what is at Co-optimus the game supports up to 4-players, has co-op story but no modes as of yet and like Borderlnds has drop-in co-op play. The MP modes look pretty intersesting as well. Here is the latest "Storyline Trailer"...

I really wanna get this but I'm gonna have to see a couple of reviews first. I hope we can get some reviews before release so I can pre-order.

Same thoughts here. I thought Aliens vs. Predator (2010) was decent albeit not what it could have been. This one will probably be at least a rental for me just for the story i.e. how the hell is it going to fill in the plot holes between Aliens and Alien

Got an unexpected bonus this week so if the reviews are decent I may go ahead and pick this one up.

They finally stumbled upon a decent piece of advertising.

I find it more than a little troubling that the most recent trailer is nothing but a pre-rendered cutscene.

I am really looking forward to my Collector's Edition to be delivered Tuesday. The game is going to have to be really terrible for me to complain too much.

As long as my power loader statue isn't broken upon arrival, this game gets 5 out of 5.

There's already a spot on my shelf next to my iCade, Portal replica gun, and Minas Tirith jewelry box.
