So whose getting this?

#1 Posted by nailmon (34 posts) -

and (if you are getting this) for what platform?

i'm gonna get it for PC and play co-op with my friend at night.

#2 Posted by FourWude (2274 posts) -

Me. On the sexxybox.

#3 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (4010 posts) -

Me also on the treesixtee. I've dutifully played (almost) everything Aliens and Predator related to date, sure as hell not gonna stop now. God I hope this game is good. Please be good. PLEEEEEASE.

If I did get it, it would be for PC.

I may - actually, I'll probably - own it someday, but when that day is depends entirely on its reception. I'm not so sure that it's going to be a good game yet, or if it's just going to be a generic shooter with an Aliens coat of paint.

I'll also hold off if it's a sound game but the narrative re-uses half the dialogue from Aliens. I do not need to know that they mostly come at night and I definitely understand when the game is over.

If it's good, I will absolutely pick it up for my computerbox. I am such a slut for Alien that a new Alien game coming out nearly gets my panties to drop.

I love the movie Aliens, and just the idea of a game recreating that movie makes me giddy... but I've never liked a single game Gearbox has ever done (sorry Borderlands fans, but I just don't get the appeal), and considering all the delays and lukewarm advance press this game has had, I think I'll wait for the reviews.

#7 Posted by GunstarRed (5792 posts) -

Yes, I kinda have to, I love Aliens too much. I have my fingers crossed it will be good... I'm not convinced it will be.

@believer258: Every single achievement name is a quote from the movie... ugh.

Getting it on PC. Been waiting for this one for a long time.

#10 Edited by I_Stay_Puft (4591 posts) -

If this game has Ryo from Shenmue in it, then yes!

#11 Posted by Ryanmgraef (243 posts) -

I'm not even sure if its a co-op capign.will probably pick it up this summer on the cheap.

#12 Posted by WarlockEngineerMoreDakka (452 posts) -

Colonial Marines is one of three games that has immediately got my attention in 2013, the other two being MGSR: Revengeance and the US release of Pandora's Tower. (Finally!)

So I wouldn't be surprised if I ended up getting Colonial Marines- but given that I tend to be skimpy on early-year game purchases, I'm not holding my breath for it.

At first I thought you were joking, but I had to make sure.

You weren't joking.


...still, if the game itself isn't full of them then it won't bother me.

#14 Posted by MikkaQ (10296 posts) -

I'm waiting for the critics' verdict on this one, when a game goes through dev hell, I tend to be cautious with it.

#15 Posted by amir90 (2243 posts) -

I probably won't buy it. I will be too busy with Dead Space 3 and DmC

#16 Posted by RandomInternetUser (6805 posts) -

Depends on the reviews, but it'll definitely be a while before I pick it up if I do (Would buy it on PC.) I still have XCOM, half of FC3, half of ACIII, Dishonored, and Sleeping Dogs to play and I plan on buying DmC and MGS:Rising Revengeance. So, kinda got a lot of games to catch up on.

#17 Posted by Deranged (1919 posts) -

Yeah I'm getting it! Most anticipated title of 2013! Getting it for the 360!

#18 Edited by Funkydupe (3441 posts) -

No preview or indications whether this is going to be a good game? I'm hoping for some replayability for the co-op, but I'm not sure how that'll go without a more open world experience; it seems this has a lot of story/scripted scenarios. That means it could be awesome the first time you play but you'd remember all the scares the second time through. Maybe I'm wrong but that's where I'm at with this. The screenshots do not impress either really.

#19 Posted by Hugh_Jazz (403 posts) -

If I end up getting it it'll be for the Wii U.

#20 Posted by Sterling (3149 posts) -

I'll be picking this up on the Wii U bitches.

#21 Posted by Morningstar (2321 posts) -

If the reviews are good or after watching some quick look action here at the bomb. If it's just ok, I'll buy it later for half the price or so.

#22 Posted by Cold_Wolven (2352 posts) -

I'll be getting it for the PC day one.

#23 Posted by Poppduder (477 posts) -

The more I hear about it, the less excited I am about it.  I don't really have an explanation for that, I guess it's not the first time its happened to me and I've still enjoyed a game, though. But I'll get it... Either 360 or PC, I haven't decided, as I don't think there have been any comparison shots out yet.  I'm a sucker for Aliens and Alien related things, and as Hicks was the most badass character in the series and I thought he was rumored to have a part in this story... I'm sold.

#24 Posted by Redbullet685 (6184 posts) -

If I get it, then it'll be on PS3. I'm really hoping that it turns out good, for I love the Aliens franchise.

#25 Posted by GiroMindTricks (74 posts) -

Already pre-purchased on steam as a valentines gift from my girlfriend. I built my new PC for this game, so it was gonna be a day one purchase for me anyway.

#26 Posted by BillyTheKid (535 posts) -

Not really planning on it but if I do get it, it will be the WiiU version.

#27 Posted by stryker1121 (1761 posts) -

I love the Aliens franchise and would get this on 360 depending on the response it gets. Some of the gameplay footage I've seen is worrisome, i.e. scripted funhouse moments and the combat seems a bit slow. The addition of gimmicky new enemy types is also a little off-putting. We shall see, but so far Aliens CM does not pass the eye test at least.

#28 Posted by Ramone (3071 posts) -

If it's good and some friends get it then probably.

#29 Posted by BigBoss1911 (2652 posts) -

Yes, getting it on pc.

#30 Posted by Levius (1298 posts) -

I think I'll be waiting on the reviews, its a busy spring for games and some of things I've heard in previews are mildly concerning. I'm guessing it will be of the level of Binary Domain on terms of overall quality, as in it will be a solid B tier game.

#31 Posted by HeyImPhoenix (175 posts) -

Just preordered it for the Xbox :) going to co op with my girlfriend :)

#32 Posted by trickology101 (35 posts) -

Well considering I have only ZombieU for my Wii U, I'd like to have a reason to play that damn system again... and probably get it down the line for PC on steam.

#33 Posted by RawknRo11a (555 posts) -

interested in it but probably wait to make sure Gearbox hasn't screwed up the co-op as much as they did with Borderlands 2 (at least on the 360). Nothing ruins a co-op experience more than random freezing and not being able to play together because a "compatibility pack won't download...

It bodes badly for the game's writing. Sure, a small reference here and a little nudge there is nice, but if the whole game constantly references Aliens and the other movies, then it won't be very good as far as story goes. There's "fanservice" and then there's annoyingly going "HEY LOOK WE'VE SEEN ALIENS ALMOST AS MANY TIMES AS YOU HAVE!"

#36 Posted by TheSouthernDandy (4010 posts) -
@believer258 ah its just achievement names. I don't think it says anything about the game other then at some point somebody thought it would be cool to go with that as a theme for the achievements.

I understand this and I'll of course wait for the game to come out and for me to play it to pass final judgement. I'm just expressing annoyance at the achievements list names and a bit of apprehension for the actual game's story.

#38 Edited by Sooty (8195 posts) -

I am actually a bit jealous of the Wii U version, even if it'll have half the framerate and look worse than PC. The gamepad stuff actually makes sense.

#39 Posted by Vinny_Says (5907 posts) -

Only if word of mouth is good.

And I don't mean the "It's great if you love Alien(s)" because that means nothing to me (haven't seen the movies). If it's genuinely a great shooter then maybe I'll get it for 360.

#40 Posted by dutch42 (538 posts) -

If it's better than the last one then most certainly.

#41 Posted by ToxicFruit (1884 posts) -

I got burned by the new AVP game when it came out so i am at least gonna gold out until the reviews come in

#42 Posted by joshthebear (2704 posts) -

I really need to see this in action, and what the word is on it before I make my decision. Although, love for Aliens is making that a hard proposition. GAME OVER MAN.

#43 Posted by Yanngc33 (4551 posts) -

I'll wait for the reviews, I was burned pretty hard by the last Aliens game. But if I do get it, PS3 for me

#44 Posted by The_Laughing_Man (13807 posts) -

I am wanting this but a bit worried about the last Alien game.

Can anyone reassure me?

I'm trying to decide between this and Dead space 3.

P.s. I love the alien moves. ( not as much alien vs predator)


#45 Edited by SeanFoster (898 posts) -

I have it preordered on Steam. I'm too much of an Alien/Aliens fan not to check it out and see it for myself.

#46 Posted by DarkTravesty (333 posts) -

pc for my friends who do not have a console and the 360 version for the ones who do.

#47 Posted by Village_Guy (2756 posts) -

I'm waiting for some raw video and opinion on it (give it to me raw baby!) before I decide. If I decide to get it, it will probably be on three-sixtee.

#48 Posted by obcdexter (715 posts) -

I'll get it at launch most likely. I'm intrigued to see if they were able to pull off a game that even remotely resembles the atmosphere and general high points (in terms of suspense and action) of Aliens. An all-time favorite of mine.

But am I actually confident they were able to? Not really ...

They'll most likely let stuff explode left and right three minutes in and have you and your buddies decimate legions of drones like they're cockroaches throughout, because: video games ...

#49 Posted by Stimpack (941 posts) -

I don't know, man. I think this one is a wait-and-see. When I first saw it at E3 it looked great, then I saw their COD-esque gamplay trailer that they put up a few months later. Now it's kind of looking worse and worse. I'll probably wait for a QL.

#50 Posted by Joeyoe31 (848 posts) -

Nailmon is my favorite digimon. And yes I hope I can get this in the near future.
