I would love to play an Alien game that is more in line with the movies in terms of horror and suspense. I mean Aliens as a concept is PERFECT for shooter...But, as we all remember in the movies those tough-big-talking-cocky marines get their asses whoped by the Aliens in couple of minutes. In a game where you go around shooting tens, maybe hundreds of Aliens really take away from the experience that is Aliens. A more intense, survival type of game where you try to escape from the facility while it's over-run by the creatures would be awesome.

Obvious bullshots, but still shows the general concepts and designs we will be playing.

Looking sweet.

My thought's entirely! I want this game to capture that feeling of being trapped and enclosed in small areas knowing that the Aliens are out there, probably won't get that though.

Don't know if they are bullshots, because it doesn't look that impressive. Maybe they're from the PC-version with a good amount of AA.

This game has been in development a little bit to lang, and it's still almost a year before it releases. That worries me. I hope Gearbox has it's best team on it, because I don't care for the new BIA.

You're right! I can't believe nobody's thought of that already. An Alien survival horror game would be great! :D I don't know if you've played and/or remember Enemy Zero on the Saturn but it could have aspects of that.

This screenshot http://images.gamersyde.com/image_aliens_colonial_... totally gives me flashbacks of making Alien Trilogy at Probe! It reminds me of the Alien Queen boss fight.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @AndreasZ94: for consoles 3d gaming (with a few exceptions) started with the 32bit era. for people playing on computers they's been a steady stream of 3d games from back to the early 80's (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. NPCs in single player games should send you hate mail, like real people ;) (2 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (4 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (4 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (4 Hours ago)
