-Hey bro, our shooter here is really generic.

-No problem, brah. We'll just produce a flashy dev diary.

-Wow, great idea, cuz.

Posted by VoshiNova

I laughed at the self serious transitions. So fucking lame.

Posted by Liquidus

I'd like to hear what Kid Rock has to say about this. Being the expert in the field of authenticity and all.

Edited by Itwastuesday

In some aspects it seems like the perfect franchise for a game (heck, it was one of the progenitors of the space marine image that games seem to love so much.) Then you realize that in any Aliens game, you're probably going to end up standing on top of a pile of a thousand alien corpses that you just mowed down DOOM-style. Where's the authenticity to the franchise there?

Hey. Another time, another road. Later man...

@VoshiNova: I have to imagine these guys think it's just as ridiculous if not more so hahah. I've made plenty of videos that end up being way more funny to me because of things that go on behind the scenes with everyone involved than the end watcher. Does that defeat the purpose of the video? Maybe. But I guess what I'm getting at is just... lighten up man.

The whole close-up introductions really felt cheesy to me, but it did make me feel a little better for enjoying the game overall. I feel that this won't be a Blockbuster (anyone thinking it will doesn't understand the title) but a great, enjoyable experience.

where are the kid rock references coming from?

Posted by Yummylee

Considering these are the guys behind Borderlands, I have to assume that this is an entirely tongue-in-cheek sort of trailer. Though it's also so much funnier to imagine that they're legitimately trying to look 'cool' with all that rubbish :P

Game looks like it will be fun when it goes on Sale during the 2013 Steam Christmas sale for $10-$15, but I wouldn't pay full price for it based on what I have seen so far. Also, the transitions in that video were so bad...

@Top8cat: Because no one is more authentic than Kid Rock

Posted by big_jon

Looks like it could be fun, but man all that cheesy camera work and effects made that hard to watch.

Posted by TheHT

LOL fucking authenticity again.

Posted by GunstarRed

The thing that worries me about this game is that it's just going to be a collection of "oh this is like that bit in Aliens" moments. That was fine for the Gearbox/Wayforward DS game, but a supposed sequel to a movie I don't want that at all. I have my fingers crossed that it will be a good game, it definitely looks spot on. The moment I see someone say "Game over, man" or whatever i'm going to be massively disappointed.

Posted by StriderJ87

That was a bit rough. Transitions aside, the game still looks clunky and scripted. When the hell are we gonna get a solid game based on this franchise?

Edited by Bummey

It's not an Aliens story if you have a plucky cast of squad members. Aliens isn't about space marines being badass soldiers fighting through a gritty campaign and mowing through hordes of aliens, it's about genetically engineered killing machines murdering the everloving shit out of every living being they come across. It's about us humans being totally outclassed by something almost completely beyond our ability to fight. That said, it wouldn't make for a great game if they followed the theme of the movies that closely.

Alien vs Predator 2 is still one of my favorite games. I hope they don't mess this up.

Posted by UndeadPatPat

The way that alien dropped from the ceiling was hilarious.

I didn't know that you could get backwards 360 controllers(1:38).

I really hope this doesn't suck.

I don't know, man, Randy Pitchford is the guy who actually thought Duke Nukem Forever was the best game that came out last year. I don't think I can ever trust his opinion again.

They SAY the Aliens are authentic but it doesn't LOOK like that when I watch their videos. They are far too slow and non-lethal from what I'm seeing. Sure, it's not possible to really represent the creatures from the movies in a gameplay environment but still... AVP1 (the first one on PC, not the Jaguar game) did an impressive job. The aliens in that game were deadly and fast as hell, the face-huggers meant instant death and in the vanilla version, there was no save option (alleviated by the patch which gave the player 3-5 saves per level depending on difficulty). It was actually frightening to play that game. But the handholdy, casual-oriented design philosophy behind modern games won't allow Gearbox to really make this game terrifying. And no, a few QTEs and scripted sequences won't help.

Short version: the aliens in this game look like they are about as dangerous as dogs.

Posted by DragonNinja789

Nooo! not the atmospheric processor!

Posted by Zleunamme

Just a thought but the game looks rough because it is not finished and won't come out for another seven months. Give Gearbox the benefit of the doubt until reviews come out. I'm intrigued where they will take the Aliens license. I'm hoping the game doesn't spend all it's time recreating the movie frame by frame. Now time to dramatically put on my glasses.

I guess that nuclear explosion wasn't that powerful... place looks remarkably intact.

If all the top game company's combined to make this game valve, bioware, blizzard, ect.... and said half of what this guy just said i would still doubt they could pull it off.

That said the only way im buying this game is if it gets 5 stars from the bomb anything less not worth my time. Plenty of shooters out there that look just like this one for free so i hope they dont plan on making profit.

mabe kid rock as the main character might change my mined....for the authentic part.<---anyone that dose not know watch this


Posted by Tylea002

If I didn't fucking hate Aliens, and the Marines from Aliens, I'd probably have expectations.

Edited by Bourbon_Warrior

If it's really authentic when you die you get Bill Paxton yelling "GAME OVER MAN!! GAME OVER!!!"

Please be good. PLEASE be good. PLEASE BE GOOD!!
