I guess the game leaked from some retailers a few days ago, but I'm gonna wait and pick it up after work Tuesday. Have the next two days off strangely enough, so I plan on plowing through it and posting my thoughts. Hopefully it doesn't suck. Really curious what the Prometheus connection will be, if any. Or if they even address the Space Jockeys outside of a level taking place in the Derelict. Stay tuned

I enjoy shitty aliens games, so even if it's not great I'm still going to pick it up. Two days to finish dead space 3...

I really hope it doesn't completely suck. A few issues here and there I won't mind, but if it's not fun that'll just be awful. I've wanted a game like this for a long time, got my fingers crossed.

I've spent more time playing this game over the last week than I care to admit, and I can completely confirm that it is indeed awful. If it weren't for the connection to the movie series I'd have given up already. Honestly though, I'm starting to lose my drive to find out how the game ends because of the boring, sloppy gameplay, so yeah...

I've actually payed 0 attention to this game. Is it a typical FPS? Something more? Inquiring minds that don't want to Google it want to know!

Yup, it's a generic FPS. No gimmicks whatsoever. You play a Space Marine sent with a unit to find out what happened to the unit from Aliens (the movie) and you end up uncovering this whole thing with Weyland Yutani. It's really poorly written and there's nothing interesting going on. If it hadn't been so long since I've seen the movies I doubt my attention would have lasted as long as it has. I think you guys are better off just revisiting the first and second film.

So does GearBox have a shitty games rescue team where 3 guys finish the shitty game they bought from some other developer without making any improvements to it whatsoever?

Apparently you can beat the game (or some levels) without firing a shot.

This game has been getting bad reviews all around. I kinda wanted to play it too. Maybe when it's hella cheap on Steam.

To people having trouble redeeming their Aliens: Colonial Marines pre-order bonuses, check out the following link:

http://forums.gearbo...d.php?p=3680324

 

EDIT: I guess I can't redeem one of them until I sign up for Gold. Whatevs 

 

----------------------------------

 

EDIT: So the opening cutscene... not impressed. It looks fine, but the lip sync is about non-existent. Not to mention they didn't do the typical fade-in of the Aliens logo. [/nitpick]

 

EDIT: This guy is giving chest compressions... to the floor :headinhands:  Another guy is doing the Peter Griffin knee thing lol

 

Great job Gearbox. I can forgive some glitches and whatnot, but my god man. I'm not even 5 minutes into the game. 

 

EDIT: I already knew this going in, but I'm don't understand why Ripley and company didn't take Bishop's legs with them. Or why they didn't get sucked into space. Yeah yeah I know, easter eggs and all that [/nitpick]

 

EDIT: More nitpicking. Hicks and Vasquez have multiple lockers?

 

EDIT: Found what's left of the egg from Alien 3 and... my dude makes no comment. I can't even seem to damage it

 

EDIT: Doesn't take long to find some real evidence of the xenomorphs. Time to whip out the spoiler tags soon

 

EDIT: My first encounter was tense. As soon as you have a co-op buddy though, the game becomes somewhat comical. Really a piss poor job of setting the mood.
