I cannot wait for this game.

Using the Moon soundtrack is almost like cheating, because it's so damn perfect for this.

If it runs on my system, I'll get it.  I've been wanting a decent Aliens game since I installed a well-done Aliens mod on Doom.
 
2013-02-07 12:29:18 PM
Oh, I hope this is good.
 
2013-02-07 02:37:49 PM
Curious about the use of the "Sick" tag.  Mebbe I'd better wait and watch this from home.

Another video game trailer that shows no actual gameplay. Surprise surprise, 'Aliens: Colonial Marines' involves...aliens. And marines.
 
2013-02-07 02:45:18 PM
Still doesnt change the fact that the gameplay we've seen so far looks like ass.

Also: "Vertical explosion" excuse as to why the colony is still here after a nuclear explosion the size of Kansas. What the dicks.

Alien Quake was one of the scariest games I've ever played.
 
2013-02-07 02:47:08 PM
Well that was exponentially better than their last trailer for the game (a trailer with a voice over so bad, the game's writer went to Twitter to assure people that it's not from the game nor did he write it).
 
2013-02-07 02:49:49 PM
Never played the quake mod, but the Doom mod was Alien TC done by Justin Fisher. Back in the day we loaded that up in the college PC lab, and a friend and I played through on co-op, to this day one of the scariest game experiences of my life.

On the other hand, there's really not much you CAN do, gameplaywise, in a game like this, besides make it a FPS. And if they get the Aliens atmosphere right (like the 2010 AvP Marine campaign utterly failed to do), you've already got a pretty decent game.

If this does well, I'll keep hoping for a game that actually focuses on the Xenos. The Xeno campaign in AvP 2010 was by far the best, and would have been brilliant with just a little more polish.

/Predator campaign wasn't too bad either.
 
2013-02-07 02:54:29 PM
sadly, considering the development hell this game has gone through, i can't be excited about it. especially since the originally AvP and especially AvP 2 are still amazing. the bar is set pretty high

Wasnt talking about it being a FPS. More like the slow animations for the xenomorphs, or the "pounce" animations for the xenomorphs you cant knock them out of with that "gunbutt smack" move the marines you can do. Or the fact that it's basically directly taking Left 4 Dead's special infected design and making them aliens without being subtle about it.

Also, again: Why is it on the Alien's planet instead of making a new setting they can do original stuff in?

2013-02-07 03:03:36 PM
Because one of those games managed to wipe out my entire PS3 in less than 24 hours.  Do you understand?
 
2013-02-07 03:09:54 PM
The word 'trailer' tricked me into thinking this was going to be a movie. I guess game developers have hijacked the word to mean a bunch of cut-scene clips featuring graphics quality that no mortal will ever witness in actual gameplay.

I feel cheated. Like when I watched Prometheus.
 
2013-02-07 03:11:08 PM
I really really want this to be good. Some of my favorite multiplayer experiences come from extended AVP2 sessions as the little speedy guy from Alien3. Once you got a handle on the arc of the pounce and got used to the wall clinging mechanics it was like fish in a barrel. It was so easy to just crawl into a vent and wait until some sucker walked past then crawl along the ceiling and drop down right behind them and eviscerate the poor bastard. Aah, fun times.

As long as you don't have to fix any fuse boxes.
 
2013-02-07 03:14:39 PM
I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty excited about this.  I got to play a bit of the multiplayer at Pax last year, and it really works.  The Marine weapons are fun, and the way the Aliens are controlled in 3rd person is great.

I'm interested in how the story plays out, being a cannonical sequel to the movies.

I know the developers have said they're working on/want to work on a sequel to AvP 2010, and all the sequel hooks in that game pointed to the Xeno homeworld. Here's hoping they don't fark it up.
 
2013-02-07 03:15:27 PM
I've never seen the horror associated with the 'aliens'. It was somewhat scary in the first movie when it was killing a bunch of helpless unarmed people, but I just sorta go 'hrm' after that. I suppose that in the second movie they didn't know what they were dealing with which is why they nearly got wiped out...

But even a modern age group of soldiers could deal with those things.

That might be a reason to buy a Wii U.

On Xbox, you can either have the motion tracker up, or your gun.  Its terrifying that you can only know where your enemy is when you can't shoot.

The second was never meant to be a horror movie, persay. The third one went back toward the horror genre, with the fourth one still in production. Wonder if they will ever make it.
 
2013-02-07 03:32:45 PM
I own the pc versions of AvP, AvP2 and the AvP2010. AvP2010 just didn't click with me. I think it was the over reliance on melee attacks and weapons for the two other races. With the aliens,It just didn't have the nice easy climbing that the old games had. I wish there was a mod that gave the old games controls to the new game. Then I would play the shiat out of it.
 
2013-02-07 03:33:31 PM
I'm always nervous about a trailer with no gameplay, but at the same time, I generally trust Gearbox.  I'll wait for the reviews, but I'm optimistic.

LordJiro: Another video game trailer that shows no actual gameplay.


THIS! It is a concern that, five days before release, they aren't showing off what the game you're gonna play looks like.  Thinka bout the release of BF for example, the later trailers were practically nothing but gameplay.  IGN posted on Youtube recently about five minutes worth of outtakes from actual gameplay of the campaign.  Looks ok.

vygramul: well-done Aliens mod on Doom.


Gotta be Aliens TC, mentioned earlier in the thread.  That was a tremendous mod.

INeedAName: Wonder if they will ever make it.


I distinctly recall hearing that the fourth one will never be made and that they abandoned the project.

Also, while the cutscenes look good (duh, they're cutscenes), those faces looked pretty comical, like they belong in a Dreamworks movie, not a game).

I'm excited, but zero-gameplay trailers don't inspire confidence in me.

They say the Wii U version is the best-looking too. And the game pad will certainly enable other nifty functions and gameplay mechanics too. I imagine hacking into terminals and welding doors closed with the stylus. But they're taking their time with the port. Oh well, a late game is better than an unpolished game.

But what is that in Rhode island's, or Olympic swimming pools? With out those I have no frame of reference.

Or you can just play Natural Selection 2, which provides a much better and ABSOLUTELY AMAZING aliens v. marines experience (I've already put in 1100 hours).

Also good trailer music: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hp-4iaKXP68

Man, that mod was awesome.  Have you ever tried the Alien Swarm mod on UT?  It's 3rd person perspective and done pretty well.

I don't doubt that at all, but when the developer doesn't release gameplay clips in the trailers, it suggests to me that the developer isn't overly confident in the game they've created.  I hope I'm wrong because I really want this game to be great.
