    Why don't you put her in charge?!

    I don't just love Aliens. I am in love with Aliens.

    That might make me a little forgiving for this game, but they do seem to care about the game they are making.

    You're in LOVE with Aliens?

    Ew.

    HANG ON. You're one of those people who WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALIENS RUNNING AMOK ON EARTH. They all had weird Xenomorphic fetishes RIGHT BEFORE A TRAPJAW IN THE BRAIN.

    Yes. Yes I will be. You know. That's one of the very few reasons I liked Resurrection. I like that they were already experimenting with the morphs. If continued, the story could have almost gone into Earth Hive etc etc.

    Because I'm a jerk, I'm going to correct you in the most obnoxious way possible.

    I loooooved the two "original" PC AvP games. The first one was pants wettingly difficult - It's pretty fascinating to hear the troubles they had with that game and the alien movements, but whatever it was they had to do, it was worth it. The combination of the random enemy spawns, their speed, and their ability to come from literally any direction... man.

    If this game can capture even a fraction of that, I'll be happy.

    would you Prowl? I'd like that.

    I know I got that wrong, I put it like that because Gorman got Hicks and Hudson mixed up.

    I figured as much. That's why I used your second quote due to relevance.

    This looks cool. I think they captured the tone of Aliens very well. I like how they are apparently retconning Alien 3.

    That's either going to be one highly polished game or a Duke Nukem.

    Absolute rental though.

    In Aliens someone always needs a Hug... From a Face Hugger.

    If that extra time means a single player campaign that grips me by the balls to terrify me, appreciate the lore of Aliens, get the feel of it right and deliver what I hope would be a highly polished multiplayer, then they can have my dollars in Febuary next year.

    Could be fun, but the graphics could be better.
