[IGN] Aliens: Colonial Marines Requirements - Page 7

post #61 of 166
The game looks decent enough in DX9. Sure, it would have been better in DX11 but I'm more interested in cohesion of design and game-play rather than eye-candy. AVP 3 was a mess in this regard where they just mangled together bit and pieces from previous games and movies.

One thing that I'm worried about is that they'll try to shoehorn the action into a series of last stands: go with your team here, defend the room for 2 minutes, get to the hangar, defend for 3, etc...

Hopefully the story is top notch. Doesn't bother me that it's DX9. I'm just looking forward to a retcon (or nears abouts) to Alien 3 (not that i don't like Alien 3, but following Aliens, was a bit of a let down) biggrin.gif

Anything better than 60FPS at 1080p, Aliens coming out of the walls, Motion Trackers and good SP experience, I'll be as happy as a fly on a **** biggrin.gifthumb.gif

pretty weak requirements, must be another console port without any eye candy

Lets hope it's not anywhere near as lame as promethus (or star treks latest "mess" on the carpet)

its unreal 3 engine basically so directx 9 is expected.......games can still look amazing in directx 9, not that big of a difference.

I really want this game to be good, but I saw some gameplay footage and it looked a bit off......kinda weak character models in cutscenes and the blood when aliens died looked silly, could be an earlier build but it was underwhelming.

Agree wholeheartedly. Script for Prometheus (before Lindelof) was pretty good. Roddenberry would be rolling in his grave over the abomination that jj abrams and co came up with. They basically took a **** on the entire history of Trek, and retconned TOS + movies,TNG + movies, DS9 and VOY.

Too Much $$ + Lens Flares = Hollywood 'Prose'

I guess I won't be able to play, since I don't meet the minimum specs of an Intel processor. thinking.gif

Aliens is such a sick game...... and universe...... I love it so much.


The last alien game was pretty lame and just.... small? simple? The RTS alien game was a cool change of pace I recommend anyone to try it out if they can, its not a great game but if you love aliens its worth the time.


The old alien game from like 2000 or w/e AvP Gold edition, that game was so epic. Being an aliens sprinting around so fast clinging to walls......... oh man its so freaking awesome. All the classes are done well (lol classes), but there is just something so awesome about the absolute freedom and alien has in running up walls and jumping around like crazy.




Edit: Prometheus was pretty awesome. A lot of people wanted it to be something that it isnt. I think if you watch Lawrence of Arabia and Kingdom of Heaven it might give you more insight into Ripley, or at least the interviews surrounding prometheus. Prometheus isn't about aliens and science, its about man and faith. If you look at it through the former you will only be disappointed.

Also lost was terrible, yes, I hate Lost. BUT, this is NOT lost so dont put your hate for Lost on Prometheus b/c Lindelrofl worked on it.

Hicks was killed in the life boat crash on Fiorina 'Fury' 161. Apone was killed by an alien in one of the later ALIEN struggles and Drake died from their blood. There is no way to play them since this is set directly after the events in ALIENS and before ALIEN 3.
