Cool. Missed a bit of this live

Posted by McDunkin

The best parts of both of these games were the Marine campaigns. The alien campaign in 2 is also pretty good as well.

AVP 1, what a great PC game!

Posted by beard_of_zeus

Hey, wasn't expecting this to show up here tonight! Didn't even know they did this stream! Nice surprise :)

Just seeing Drew's smiling face makes every video better.

Posted by dezvous

I cannot wait to watch this! I never played them when they were current so this is an excellent excuse to take a look at them.

that was quick

I can't be spooked if Drew is there to protect me.

Posted by NotValeriusCato

The first one was so much better! The second was just like a mushy shooter that lost the unique feeling for the different creatures.

Greatest opening to any gb video ever.

Man! This just makes me wish AVP2 was on Steam. Maybe I have the disks around somewhere...

Love this feature.

Posted by Marokai

When there's a guest, and the video itself is actually properly well produced, this is an enjoyable feature.

Posted by amlabella

Good stuff Patrick, I especially like the feature when you get a guest to join you. Hoping you can do that every now and then in addition to the broadcasts from home.

Posted by rcath

That game looks pretty good for its age.

Sexy Drew stared into my soul for a little bit i could feels it

Posted by MrBubbles

AVP 2 is one of the greatest games ever and i think the best video game sequels ever i beat all three campaigns several times and i sank so many hours into the multiplayer because it was a lot of fun.

I beat all three campaigns of the most recent AVP game and i thought it was a lot of fun it's a shame no one else seems to like it.

Is Patrick drinking out of an empty cup?

Trying to watch this video on fire fox is broken.

Posted by Pudge

Not to crap on Patrick, but I'm glad he or whoever else did it decided to record these in house rather than at his house on a janky XSplit connection. I appreciate the quality and another chance to watch a long video with Drew in it.

Posted by chrispti

Enjoyed all the Alien talk between Patrick and Drew. Drew is endlessly knowledgeable in everything that is cool.

The Alien Vs Predator Films may have been bad, but they did give us one of the greatest tag lines of all time in, "Whoever Wins, We Lose".

Posted by whatisdelicious

My text message tone is the alien sensor going off. I was constantly checking my phone during this.

Posted by Butler

@whatisdelicious: Send it to me! I have some much trouble finding a quality version of it. ^^

Really? I never played the first, but I LOVED the sequel.

I felt that the storytelling was top notch and I liked how different each of the species played.

Sounds like I missed out. I just recall the reviews of the day calling the first game too dark.

Posted by KlUMZeE

Awesome video! I love Aliens and I love Predator but I never played much of the games so it was cool seeing what they were all about. Also, Drew and Patrick made for an entertaining pair.

Lions. Tigers. Bears......Oh my.....

Man, such a good start... No sarcasm, that was fantastic!

Posted by scottygrayskull

Whoa! That totally is the voice of Cortana! AND Cate Archer! :O

Posted by jillsandwich

Hey, you guys, I don't know if you know this or anything but....

Aliens is dope as fuck. Seriously, if Colonial Marines really just is Star Tours but for Aliens, I am perfectly content BECAUSE I FUCKING LOVE THAT MOVIE.

Posted by bluntpencil

Patrick, I love you for doing this, but I got to say that videos like these would be a lot more enjoyable (to me at least) if you'd done just the tiniest amount of research on the games you pick or even just paid attention to the information the games give you onscreen - showing the games a bit of respect, I guess I mean. If you're going for immersion and getting into the proper atmosphere and getting SCARED, why do you rush into them?

Why do you skip any and all tutorial messages that tell you what you actually need to do, why do you not pay attention to the story (laughable as it may be in AvP, granted xD )? I'm getting a bit tired of "oh, I skipped that tutorial message too fast so now I don't know what I need to do"-mentality on Giant Bomb lately. On Quicklooks, alright fine, but this feature seems made for getting INTO these games, not just rushing to the next monster closet and missing half the controls.

And yes, I'm cranky because I looooove me some AvP and it hurts me to see you not play it to its fullest potential, also for your own sake - you're missing out, man. :D

Thanks guys, looking forward to the next episode of SwS!

: Have you ever played The Void ? I think it's something unusual worth checking out that you may find interesting, maybe not for a live show etc but I would be interested to hear your thoughts on it.

It's on Steam and has been in a few indie bundles this year.

Agreed. I liked the first AVP way better. The second game felt more like a standard shooter. It was brighter, the aliens were not as tough and not as fast etc. And the atmosphere was way better in the first game in my opinion. Still, AVP2 was good, too.

Further awesome things/random facts about the AVP1:

- you could shoot out every single light source. In MP, the map would be completely dark after a few minutes.

- the rocket/grenade launchers were freaking awesome with the dynamic explosion effects

- the vanilla game didn't let you save at all, they patched the feature in after release (with 3,4 or 5 saves per level depending on the difficulty level)

The second game was more about the awesome multiplayer I believe.

Now is the time. Take down that goddamned Nyan Cat. It's far overstayed it's welcome.

Posted by Kamylow

Don't bother with Hamachi guys, Tunngle does the job just as good and you don't have to do anything exept creating an account.

I really enjoy those spookin with scoops and i'm eager to see what you can come up with when you will have a formula and setup a little more clear. Just play around a little more with your options and controls (especialy) before or at the beginning of your streams.

Reminds of the NOLF2 level, Ice Station Evil made by the same guys.

Posted by ComradeCrash

I loved the first one! One of my favorites, never got my computer upgraded enough to play the second one when it came out.

Edited by Thiefsie

You guys finished too early... about 1 minute more and the best part of the whole game happens when you are a chest burster and you have to bite out of a human's chest... through their beating heart.... Seriously the Alien campaign started in the best fashion ever and followed the evolution of an Alien which was fucking awesome...

If you didn't madly skip the intros you would have known you were a face hugger...

Alien campaigns for both 1 & 2 were my favourites, with marines a close second while Predator was the more conventional boring FPS style... AVP 1 was brutally hard as an alien, but super fun taking all the lights out etc.

Also I endlessly LANed the multiplayer for the first AVP on the defence maps as the coop game where you are marines holding off alien attacks.. I think the Bunker level (?) was the best by absolute far, as you would run to the bunker after falling down a huge slope (which if you fell correctly would net you a shotgun) and then try to hold off the attackers from all the openings in the ceilings/walls, and then bug out and decide to make a run for it to another area with more weapons... I think I played that map solely for hours and hours with buddies.
