Has it been said anywhere what the deal is with the place being nuked at the end of Aliens? Because if this is 2 weeks after the events from 2 then i'm still confused at how they are happily walking around there and everythings untouched... Did the nuke not get launched? Curious if any of you have heard.
Aliens Colonial Marines
It (most likely, if Hicks wasn't bonkers) took the rescue team 17 days to get to the planet, so, that's maybe more than enough time for the area to "cool down". What I'm more concerned with is ... wouldn't it be a huge problem for the marines to survive on that planet with the damn atmospheric generator gone? Or maybe they already blew more than enough shit into the air to keep the atmosphere stable on its own for a long time - I'm sure that will be referenced in some way. As far as the supposedly humongous explosion is concerned: Guess it'll be revealed it wasn't as devastating as expected (the prognosis did come from an android, though, guess Bishop leaned more towards literature than mathematics :P)
I could've sworn I saw some footage of gameplay near the derelict alien space craft (where the eggs are). I don't believe that's very near Hadley's Hope, otherwise they wouldn't have had to wait decades for Burke to send them coordinates. Maybe the LV-426 parts of the game take place at some smaller facility the colonists setup before venturing into the derelict. That's all I got.
@GetEveryone"In 17 minutes this place is gonna be a cloud of vapour the size of Nebraska."
Yeah, didn't Bishop mention that the blast was equivalent to 40 megatons.
I'd imagine there would be nothing left of that place.
I'm interested in playing the game, merely for the fact that it gives me a chance to fire pulse rifles at xenomorphs, but I'd take the whole canon aspect with a pinch of salt.
