Where's the bioshock infinite vga trailer on this site?

Mediocre graphics but at least it's an old fashioned FPS where you need medipacks and shit. Hate the 'auto health replenish'-feature in most shooters these days.

Too bad NS2 likely shits all over this game

Can't be the same derelict ship, I mean, The Derelict - on screen#3, can it?

Maybe I would prefer to be more dark and less saturated colors, more rain and destroyed stuff....just more Aliens like. But still looking forward to play it. Maybe its only by those screenshots.

on AvsP the aliens all moved like locusts, here they seem like fat dogs.

These are really bad bullshots with uninspired art. Anyone remember this crap, when it was developed for PS2? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIeLGifENbI Reminded me fate of Duke Nukem forever. After neverending development still shitty game.

I'm hoping for the best, but after watching a recent interview (along with game footage), I have a feeling you may be right. There is just nothing I've seen of this game that gets me even the least bit excited.

hope the game has AI as good as that. Nothing about this game gets me excited for it anymore..but if they broke into saturday night fever poses then i'd give it a go

Thats right you would know the quality of the game since its out, right? the game looks nothing like the prototype. It is bull to sit here and say that the image quality is not there. The game looks gorgeous. the game looks just as good as any of the games in the genre. It might end up being a good, so how about, I don't know wait until it is released. But I forget that we have a lot of time travelers on this site.

ronroul: look at this longplay video http://youtu.be/xulEWbAyv3k I see only generic overscripted tunnel with boring gameplay in mediocre graphic. I will rather play AvP remake on Cryengine 3 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GmD3-sVCbnY

a predator game on cryengine 3 could be pretty cool

I'm still waiting for a decent predator game tbh. I'm surprised no-one has got it right. The predator game on PS2 and xbox had the right sort of idea, but man was it clunky.

The only proper Predator game close was the last AvP were you could decide human, Preds or Aliens.
They really nailed down the Predator section perfectly IMO, just a shame they cant do a proper IP Predator with that stuff but flesh it out, would be great.

thing is they'd over do it.. throw aload of preds at you to the point where the fact they're these ultimate hunters becomes meaningless as you're getting rid of countless of them. I'd like a max of 3 in the game. Theres supposed to be two species of predators right? so have the end boss the higher ranked race. Make the rest of the game between encounters like a vietnam game..so theres an active human war going on...throw in a decent crew you can get attached to, some alien dogs, and some actual tactical elements to each predator encounter, and you might be on to a winner. Or..... have you play as the only predator and take down all the humans. But then you're basically playing crysis arent you?

I don't wat to fight the predators...blergh.

I want to BE a predator...as i said, the ps2 game had the right idea. It kinda followed the second film a little, with the "fucking voodoo magic" guys. Then some sort of special group that could see through the predators cloaking (take note crytech..lol) and had automated guns that again, could track the predators movements which made it quite difficult. you could move around the city rooftops, stealth around, use your gadget etc, if it was raining, it would screw up you cloak... it was just a bit "budget title" for it to work that well.

As for the AvP games, I've not liked the predator sections much either. Its gotta be difficult making a creature so powerful not become TOO powerful, but thats kinda what the avp games did, the predator was just too damn powerful. It wasn't even a challenge. Its not exactly a franchise thats in the limelight anymore though, so i doubt we'll be seeing one anytime soon.
