    Top ten reasons what happens, when Doom 3 and Left4Dead marries and has alien kids. :/

    Please don't get your hopes up too high. This just looks like a visual/map update of Doom 3. Of course, I haven't played it so I don't know for sure. But seriously, does anybody have any major plans for blind purchasing this game before reading/viewing at least 3 reviews? Doubtful. Look at the track record of disappointment in last 15 years.

    I'm defitively hoping it turns out good. Specially after that awful AVP game that came out a couple of years ago. Although it would be cool if the Predator has a cameo at the end of the game.
  • Vohaul86
    The last thing this game should have is a Predator cameo. As this game should be canon bringing than guy would be only fan service that kills the atmosphere (like using Pyramid Head outside Silent Hill 2). Yes, it might give satisfaction to some immature fanfic writers, but in the end it's just f***ing stupid...

    Eh,it's a game. I don't take the whole "canon" bullshit too serious when it comes to games. I'm probably the only one who loved playing as Yoda in Soul Calibur 4.

    This game looks damn awesome, definitely will add it to my FPS collection :)

    oh yeah! this is canon because Fox say so! hey Joe! you know what else is canon ? Alien Resurrection and before ridley scott made prometheus so it was the Avp movies..oh by the way prometheus takes out of continuity Aliens and Alien 3 so I would go so far to call it canon also
  • Malidictus
    So does that mean Alien 3 is now non-canon? That alone would make Colonial Marines awesome.

    I don't think you got me
    Prometheus makes "Aliens" make no sense in the time line and by eliminating Aliens from the time line you eliminate alien3

    I don't like these speculative videos, they're pointless. I'd rather a review of a product that actually is on the market, not fanboy expectations.
  • Enyaw
    avatar
    I agree. It gets all the more annoying when Joe goes on to bash those very same fanboy expectations from other people in other reviews, then goes and posts crap like this.

    My god this shit is so redundant, stopped watching at Loader Suit section. Stop wasting my time.

    It looks awesome...

    But has everyone but me forgotten the excellent AVP games from Fox Interactive in the late 90s early 2000s?
    Every time a new Alien franchise game is announced it's like people forgot those ones even existed. At least that is what I hear from the reviewers.

    The movies would have been soooo much better had they stayed within the time frame of the Alien movies and added Colonial Marines to the mix.

    Oh, like Sword of the Stars 2 kicked ass Joe?

    So have they mentioned how they are gonna work around the fact you can visit Hadley's Hope in the game, even though it was THERMONUCLEAR EXPLOSIONED out of existence at the end of Aliens? This has bothered me since they said you could visit, and I've yet to see anything outside vague handwaving as to how this would even be possible.

    Also Gearbox suck. Too much PR and spin for my tastes.

    A nuclear explosion does not completley annihilate solid metal and rock - several of the harder buildings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki survived the blasts, and I imagine Space Future building materials are a bit more durable than WWII-era Japanese structures.
  • Enyaw

    Dude, the explosion occured around 10 stories underground, centrally located right underneath the colony. Even in the film they say when it blows everything for 10 miles will be crater city.

    I don't know why people are bitching. I really liked the 2010 AVP game (And Doom 3 too, for that matter) and if this is anything like that it's nothing to complain about!

    The biggest flaw of AVP2010 was how short it was (even putting the three campaigns together), so a more fully fledged Marine campaign - which is, in essence, what this is - is more than welcome.

    Avp 2010 suck..not as Avp game but as a game..that thing crush after I walk around corner in the first marine level

    from Guy that has been Re-playing AvP and Avp2 for more than ten year I can tell you that AvP 2010 doesn't come to be close to be as good as does games

    I'm not into horror, but this game looks interesting. Don't get your hopes up too high, Joe, or you might jinx it.

    Still, I'm hoping that the game will turn out to be decent for the fans.

    ...you have me hooked Joe. I will pre-order this game.
  • Atticus23
    I'm not a gamer since I am too poor to afford any new system. But this game really makes me want one just to play this game.
  • shoggoth8852

    So...if the 360 and PS3 version of A:CM features split-screen does this mean the Wii U will feature 3-player local co-op? Two people sharing the TV while the third uses the Gamepad alone? Doesn't really matter to me one way or another since I'm more than likely going to be playing this solo anyway but I really like knowing that option is there.
  • Michin
    This series has always disappointed, not looking forward to this one either.

    My first thought: You mean Top Ten Reasons how Aliens: Cm Will disappoint Joe...
  • Stultiloquy
    I wouldn't hold my breath for a Ripley skin, Joe - Sigourney Weaver is pretty notorious for withholding the license for her name and likeness from 3rd-party merchandising.

    Man, you are really grasping at straws for reasons to get hyped about this game.

    Honestly, this looks a bit pants to me; way too scripted, clashing strangely with the established Alien storyline and overall not very Alien-like. Mind you, I'm comparing it to the fantastic Marine sections from AvP (the early-00s version, not the recent shitty one).
  • patlefort
    Meh... another console shooter. I can haz proper mouse + keyboard support that doesn't lag, or have retarded acceleration or smoothing? Just something that doesn't insult the skills of those who play FPS with a mouse. See Serious Sam 3 for an example of good input programming.

    I didn't pick it up, but I've been hearing rumblings now that it's been released.

    Instead of kicking ass it sounds like Aliens: CM sucks ass.

    Shame. Can't wait to see how Joe feels after playing it. In the meantime I'll fire up AVP 2 and enjoy a GOOD Aliens game...if I can just remember what happened to the disc.
  • Satalin
    Ok, i've played the game...

    Wow, just wow. This will probably go down as one of the worst games of 2013, if not one of the worst of the decade.

    Seen number of reviews today, and man its not looking good. Looks like those 10 reasons might not help this one joe.
  • fox_metro
