    Btw I also thought the PS1 Alien Resurrection game had tons of potential, if it wasn't for the botched controls and difficulty.

    But I'm so glad that a) It's not another Cameron-esque Aliens Marine wank-fest and b) not developed by Kwan cowboy developer.

    This has potential.

    That was never explained, and it doesn't matter.

    Is that daughter the old lady that died of old age that is mentioned at the beginning of the second movie ? Oh wow, if so, I just hope the game tells you about how she really died and you actually control whole game long a lady in her 80s. That would have made A:CM SO MUCH BETTER.

    Shit, as if Colonial Marines wasn't bad enough in the continuity rape.

    I'm calling it now, her mom will save her in this game. Somehow. Count on it. And how that will be possible will not be explained.

    Same. I get why people want the whole not shooter Amnesia style game but a Bioshock style Alien game would be super interesting if done right.

    It soundlike an improvement. Let's see if Sega's quest of aping every popamole in the Market and failing terribly at it will have a good ending.

    It won't be hard to be better than Colonial Marines, but that's such a low bar I can't get interested yet.

    This is just retarded. Maybe in some other game they'll make Ripley's cat a protagonist. What happened to him, BTW? We still don't know :troll:

    Well, it's not being developed by Gearbox, so that's automatic incline.

    I am, however, not very optimistic. It's one thing to claim to be inspired by games like Dishonored and Bioshock, but another thing entirely to make a game where that inspiration actually results in a good game. They might just mean you can sneak around and there are vending machines where you can buy ammo.

    but it's developed nuCA's console team, so that's automatic decline. so is it back on the old incline/decline level?

    I hope they'll keep her as an actual human and not make her some derp clone infused with alien DNA.

    Is Ripley's DNA now xenomorph magnet?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they work those midichlorians in there.

    Fucking retarded.

    I didn't say it would be massive incline or even good, but it can't be worse than the atrocity Gearbox shat out. That's a pretty low bar, though.

    I would actually prefer a survival horror game where you're stuck on a ship with a single xenomorph that hunts you. Oh, and it should be a commercial ship that didn't have any weapons or bodyguards, so that you have no way to fight back.

    But alas, such hopes are in vain because :popamole:
