Im very dissapointed. What is it ? Some kind of CoD spinoff...with all those poping numbers, killstreaks and cheesy BADASS kind of things. Where is the atmosphere that should be a huge part of Aliens games. GFX looks like shit as well.

completely agree. That overlay crap doesn't fit AT ALL. It's even more jarring because the environments are so dark. It's distracting. Still interested, but it'll be a no sale if I can't turn that hud off...

Yeah was looking forward to this game.

But not so sure now.

I hate COD with a passion.

Graphics i think were the 360/ps3 versions sadly.

I want survival/puzzle/adventure game in the vain of Telltales Walking Dead set in the Alien universe. Brand new story and setting with new characters.

"It's different. We're approaching this game completely differently to any other first person shooter...something, something...blah blah *farting noise*!"

Yeah, sure you are, four eyes. *looks at footage* Nope. Why are you lying to me?

I agree with that stupid HUD and XP points coming at Your face during gameplay. But still if there is gonna be option to turn that off, it can be really good multiplayer. I would also prefer to have that smart-gun HUD more as a monocle that it would have some blurred edges to feel more like You have only one eye covered. Maybe Im just too much into details. But sounds got much better from the first videos. Anyway....I LOVE THAT HEAD STATUE that guy has behind him. WANT IT!

Okay, so, some guys here don't like how ACM vs. multiplayer looks like. Couldn't care less about it. What's with the Story Mode? Personally, I see no big deal with this video and still I hope the game SM will be decent enough to play it in co-op with my friends.

Well unfortunately... certain game devs only care about money... and gamers only seem to care about CoD which is a type of 1999 era FPS dressed up in last gen graphics so you have so suffer.

Meh , big Alien(s) fan here but that video doesn't make me want to buy it. Looks pretty average to me.

About the game


What's up?

    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Well the Gears 4 rumours are rumours... so (0 minute ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts For XBO owners it's a no-brainer. I just wish Microsoft extended the Alan Wake plus all DLCs for the pre-order of the PC version of Quantum Break. But we can't have everything. (0 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX New IP like Gears of War too :P And they do need more cross-play.. but as long as they're so bullish about how it works it will never be as convenient to the gamer as cross-play stuff on PSN :/ (2 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The Quantum Break deal is really great, you get both PC and XBO versions plus Alan Wake and all of its DLCs (X360 version through backwards compatibility) if you pre-order the game. (2 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane If indeed they end releasing Gears 4 on XO and PC simultaneously, I say have cross platform online play and the IP will grow even more. (2 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am not saying that's MS's plan but that's how I see it. One thing they need to do is have cross-platform online play. (3 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane To be honest, I can see the point of publishing a new IP like QB on PC. Maximise revenue on a high cost, high risk project, build a fan-base then make the sequels exclusive. (5 minutes ago)
