either way it does explain the how/what/when/where/why of another Queen

This is the best I could find for you: The directors cut of Alien: There is a famous scene (deleted from the theatrical release) which shows Ripley discovering a barely-alive Captain Dallas and the body of Brett. They have been cocooned by the xenomorph, and are both mutating into one of the original eggs capable of creating a facehugger. This shows that a single xenomorph can use a victim for food and/or to continue the egg -> facehugger -> chestburster -> xenomorph -> egg life cycle.

I see people saying that drones can turn into queens. I think that only happened in the AvP universe, I wouldn't consider AvP cannon, but that is just me.

Ive seen the trailer and it looks mediocre at best.

ah yeah cool, cheers for that thumb.gif

but nah its definitely canon in the Alien universe. its first mentioned in Earth Hive (Earth War in comics) which originally followed Newt and Hicks after the LV426 incident. but then they made Alien 3 which took the series in a whole new direction killing them off and landing Ripley on a prison planet, rather than having them all rescued and Newt's memory wiped.

so they changed their names to Billie and Wilks. but yeah anyway the Alien obviously resurfaces, this time on Earth. and yeah they learn that to survive the drone can form into queens or lay a specific queen egg if possible in order to ensure survivability and monarchy.

its pretty awesome, these things are the ultimate space monster haha. so looking forward to fighting them, i really hope they make the battles memorable.

It looks interesting, but seems a little odd to make a game about a movie that came out in 80's. Let's hope it turns out ok.

I wasn't aware the comics and books were actually canon, I'm pretty sure they have never officially been so. Actually with Earth Hive, as you noted, it was changed specifically so it would tie in with the universe, and was affected by Alien 3's events (which is touched on in a minute as to why this may not be considered canon) so clearly it wasn't regarded as any form of canon back then. I would regard it as faithful to the universe, in-universe, but not "officially" canon (though they do make for damn good reading and I love them all personally, even the AvP books and comics, I'm a massive fan). Ridley Scott, according to fan sources, stated that he only considered Alien and Aliens, along with Prometheus (obviously) canon. I wonder where that leaves Aliens: Colonial Marines in his point of view?

At this point I don't care much about canon. I mean, Prometheus is canon, right? I think it did more harm than good.
No, I just want a decent Aliens games and so far this looks like it, but while seeing the IGN demonstration I can say I'm not so happy with the pacing. You're either following someone or someone is in constant contact with you - you're just not alone against the Xenomorphs and that takes something away from the atmosphere.

yeah i get ya. i suppose i shouldnt say its canon, the books are canon with the "alien" universe, but more so the extended universe i guess you would call it. they are awesome though arnt they haha thumb.gif

im also curious where Scott stands on this game's story then, since this game is slated as a "true sequel" to the film.
