[IGN] Aliens: Colonial Marines Requirements - Page 12

post #111 of 166
They lovingly crated details of the moive into the game going as far as to create a light filter to replicate the efect the chosen film had. I am realy hope full that this will satisfi my craving for new alien storyline unlike the AVP movies and Prometheus...(sorry I have a hard time counting that in there) . I know people smack talk 3 a lot but it wasn't that bad didnt touch alien or aliens but still better then Prometheus.

I don't think any of the films were "that" bad. Even the AvP movies. Personally, I have never not enjoyed any of them.

For those whiners who DISLIKE AVP really needs to THINK before what they say and do some research. The reason they are related is because they were in the comic books. The movie and the story could have been explained a bit better but the books and comics were much more detailed than that.

So stop complaining about it. It won't be long before we have an Predator game. There is talk going on with the devs they are considering a next better AVP game. At least maybe they won't "abandon" it like Rebellion did to AVP. That wasn't our fault. Just a broken game and broken animation and crappy system. While i think AVP is way MUCH better due to the fact it runs in DX11.

This one won't be ANY different but a console port and lower system requirements. So i honestly think AVP engine is way better since it has tessellation and it made the Xenos look very extremely realistic! But at least we have an Alien game that is based off the films which is good. Predators STILL play a role with Xenos. There is a lot of history with them in the comics and way before "Weyland's" time.

we hear ya man, but you may have misread. the distaste for AvP is stemming from the movie franchise i think not the video games. plus our discussion was more about the story direction regarding the lore of the Alien universe. we are just differentiating between comics/books/movies etc.

and really only the latest AvP game wasnt that great, i personally enjoyed it for a while but did get over it. the first 2 are awesome games, i still play them now. anyone who's ever taken on the Marine campaigns on Realistic knows the meaning of "fear" when playing a game haha. really hope they capture that with Colonial Marines.

AvP 1st movie - As much as I like Aliens and Predator movies, it was not great.
AvP 2 - Not nearly as horrible as the first.
Alien-Good
Aliens-EPIC
Alien 3 - meh
Alien Resurrection - I liked
Predator-EPIC
Predator 2 - Not bad
Predators - Great flick.

If my comment came off that way let me just sya I love avp universe had all the comics and toys as a kid. I love the AVP games even the latest. I was so juiced for the movie when I heard it was coming out I even went to midnight premier just felt that it didn't live up to the awesomeness I remembered from childhood even taken with the grain of salt that it was a movie adaptation.

haha i'll grab a suit and take your side mate thumb.gif im with ya there. except for me Alien 3 is upgraded from "meh" to "good". i liked it. as with the AvP movies i also really liked them, but simply as cool action movies with the 2 biggest bad arses in the universe.

will add to that AvP (1999) on PC is epic, AvP 2 on PC imo also epic. havnt had the chance to experince the console/portable games except of course Alien Trilogy on PS1.

GreenmanGaming ftw ay haha thumb.gif

ok so i just finished the first mission of the campaign, got it on Xbox360. and its pretty bloody awesome. its intense from the get-go, so far the controls and the fluidity of the game is definitely there. i mean it was a console game but didnt have that "console feel", if you PC FPS players get me. was fairly smooth. this game on a harder difficulty on PC, ooh man i cant wait.

the Aliens really do come out of nowhere. i had it on Normal so was pretty easy, like they get right in your face but are fairly easy to take down which is good. like in the movies, the Aliens didnt have God-health, just needed to shoot them enough and they popped. their strength is in numbers.

the game has "epic co-op" written all over it, although i could be getting ahead of myself. lets just say that whole first mission i didnt blink much.

and you HAVE to rely on that motion tracker, it only comes up with a button press as its a separate hand-held device, but it doesnt get in the way at all and adds a bit of realism to the whole thing, as well as increasing the intensity. if you have it up and get rushed just start firing and you will automatically lower it to engage as opposed to the frantic button mash to hide/change to wrong weapon/pull pin on grendade and self kill that happens in some games haha.

will play more soon and write a proper review. but im (clearly) pretty excited right now biggrin.gif
