OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 2:31 AMI hope so. I havent really bothered with alien games since my amiga days. Hoping for a game with a great story to it, like halo had.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 2:51 AMSorry, but I refuse to give Gawker any site traffic. They are douchebags of the highest order. And I'm still waiting for someone to explain how the hell that place survived a 40 megaton blast with a blast radius of 30 kilometers. The place should be nothing more than a dirty glass hole in the ground. Nothing could survive a blast like that either, so where did the life forms come from for the Aliens to infest? LV-426 was a lifeless ball before the humans turned up, and after that blast there should have been nothing left alive at all. So it just makes no sense whatsoever

OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 4:36 AMAs Cypher said, the sheer fact that Hadley's Hope is basically intact and there are hints as to what might have happened to Apone and Hudson it makes it completely ridiculous. They could have come up with a real ingenious and brilliant solution, but as it is now I only see that they are ignoring the effects of a thermonuclear explosion.
Ridley Scott will eventually tell us how the Queen was born. Right now we have the Deacon; coming soon the Mercury, the May and the Taylor.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 1:25 PMThe game looks a fun blast...but I certainly agree with the above comments that the huge thermonuclear explosion makes it's setting/storyline a piece of illogical fluff at best, and doesn't make sense as something that can be taken seriously as 'canon' between the events of ALIENS and ALIENS 3. So personally, I'll just imagine this whole thing as merely being yet another 'bad dream' that Ripley suffers during hypersleep along with ALIEN 3 and ALIEN RESURRECTION, lol...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 1:28 PMI also include aliens as a "bad dream".


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 1:33 PMI'm with Shane on this one.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 1:41 PMYeah, that works fine too for those that only like ALIEN. Thank goodness ALIEN and ALIENS finished with shots of Ripley in hypersleep!...


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-07-2012 9:29 PMThe problem with sequels is that writers are getting less creative. Instead of coming up with a completely new location and scenario, they are returning to the old premise and trying to figure out a way to exploit it. For example, it would be hard for writers to make a "Darth Vader Returns" sequel to ROTJ without doing some serious explaining. In the same way, Hadley's Hope was nuked completely, and the writers of this game are hard pressed at finding a clever way of explaining how the colony survived the blast. In all reality, Hadley's Hope should be long gone. I find it sort of detestable that they've supposedly discovered a way to make it as if it somehow survived the blast. That's just too farfetched for me. This doesn't mean that I won't play the game, but I am truly interested in seeing how they've written themselves out of this one. Honestly, Alien 3 should have never existed. If anything, it should have dealt with the aliens somehow getting to earth aboard the Sulaco. That would have been far more intriguing than that prison planet debacle we had to suffer through.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-08-2012 8:14 PMThe one thing that has never been properly explained as far as I'm concerned is why nobody has bothered to go back to the derelict on LV426. Sure there was a 30 or 40 megaton blast at Hadley's Hope, but there is no evidence to show that the derelict was destroyed by it or that it was even within the blast range. In fact, the chances that the derelict was even anywhere near to colony would be too much of a coincidence. So I am hoping that this game (given that its canon) will explain why nobody has gone back to the derelict as a source for the aliens.


OvomorphMember0 XPMay-11-2012 5:55 AMthe game looked pretty dismal to me. and the obvious plot holes. flogging a dead horse this one.
