    I did a search for Alien and didn't find anything, though if I'm mistaken, we'll just continue on that thread.

    I preordered this last night in addition to Mass Effect.

    EBGames.com - Buy Aliens vs Predator Hunter Edition - Playstation 3

    There is an image to the Hunter's edition. Dunno if I'll keep the preorder, but a Facehugger in my apartment would be awesome.

    ^ Yikes! Sorry to hear about that.

    I too can't wait for it to come out. I know I'll be getting it on PC.

    I don't think so. I remember playing it when I was at MS and that was in 2001, unless I am thinking of the sequel. I'm just glad it's Rebellion developing it.

    I hope you get to play more as the chestburster and facehugger. I loved when you had to punch out of a guys chest!

    Pre-ordered it last month, love the series.

    Fingers crossed that they haven't watered the difficulty down to accommodate the joypad crowd.

    I think because eyeballkids PS3 was stolen, his mate got one cheap...

    AVP has always been a sweet series, but if I'm not mistaken Sega have the publishing rights and well... their recent track record hasn't been great.

    Its developed by the dudes that did the first one and they've been at it for 2 years, so I can't imagine it being the same sort of arse up as pretty much every other Sega game from the last 5 or so years.

    yeah. Sega can put their name on it, but Rebellion is making it. Wish I could find my old copy on the PC

    Probably, I had that game on PC. AVP 2 was such a fun game. Really glad consoles are getting that type of game. I spent hours and hours playing it.....

    Now, if only someone would make a sequel to Alice.

    I am intrigued by the game, but not sold on it quite yet. Still need to see some good videos to make my final decision.

    There "was" supposed to be a colonial marine game, and if you add coop to that, I'd cream.

    That could have been cool, but I think it would have been too similar to all the other games that rip off Aliens, which is pretty much ALL of them. Getting to play as the Aliens and Predators is awesome. Wall climbing up behind a marine and chomping their brains out is satisfying. Hiding in trees and taking peoples head off with a plasma cannon is also nifty.

    Thats still on the way apparently, althougth Sega and Gearbox have a different reason for the delays every time they talk about it.
