Fingers crossed. I'm part of the problem, but I'll buy any Alien(s) game that I can get my hands on.

If this means that Alien(s) will then be a more terrifying enemy, then this could be good. Like, it/they pop in while in firefights and cause general chaos or provide tension in-between those encounters.

Certainly better than the mindset that you should just destroy waves of aliens because they are merely fodder.

How do you even fuck up something as basic as enemies in Aliens?

It's not hard. Hint to devs : it's on the title.

Maybe you will have to "use" the alien to get rid off the enemy that annoys you while trying to avoid getting in direct contact with it, lot's of enigma and puzzle to find a way out or getting rid of ennemies, and a bit of gunfights (but not much please)...

Not expecting much but who knows.

Yeah, pretty much all of this.

The alien encounters should be few, with good build up and tension, and of course hard as fuck, those things must be lethal killers not just mindless grunts who die in a few shots.

More "Alien" and less "Aliens" this time, please.

Yeah I gotta say just from that artwork i'm down for this.
Even if the enemies are humans and cyborgs. It'll make the xenomorph appearances all the more special just like in Alien. Not to mention that means we'll get some 3 way conflict's which i'm a huge fan of. Hell those were my favorite part's in colonial marines.








I didn't think Colonial Marines was that bad on PC after the patches and for the cheap price I bought it for.

I totally agree that one or two aliens in the whole game IS a great idea. I want that game.

However, the alien void doesn't NEED to be filled with combat against soldiers, like I could get in any other game. I really, really, hope the rumors about it aren't true, and that we can have a game focused on actual sci-fi horror, other than childish, "PEOPLE WILL GET BORED IF WE DON'T DO GUNS ALL THE TIME GUNS GUNS GUNS!"

How about this. Dead Space but instead of Necromorphs it's Xenomorphs. It's not hard!!

It's by an entirely different developer and seemingly type of game. It's just a name after all.

That is what Isolation was originally rumored to be. Somewhere along the line, however, rumors changed to more of a shooter vibe. Which is a shame.

I like that first shot with the alien silhouetted in the visor. Nice touch.

Could be ok if it's not modeled off a shooter like Call of Duty or something else that's brainless and dumb, and more like Butcher Bay or the old Thief games....something with a semblance of taste and tactics.

Yeah, i agree, i would gladly take an adventure game with some action sections and more puzzles and actually exploring instead of straight action tps/fps again, we already had several of those, and sadly few are really worth the time.

What idiot goes "You know this horror series with an iconic enemy? Let's make it LESS of that". I guess cause it worked so well the last time. -_- I hope the rumours false.

"Dishonored meets BioShock" was how it was described to me.

Dunno if that artwork is real, but it certainly looks like Ripley's daughter. I legit hope 2014 is the year of female protagonists.

Positive thinking is all good, but if its published by Sega, the game is probably cursed.

I knew Colonial Marines was too good to be true long before if came out because Sega.

Playing Devils advocate, they're actually pretty boring and generic for a videogame and thanks to Cameron...just cannon fodder to be thrown infront of pulse rifles, flamethrowers and turrents.
A 10 hour game of shooting cookie cutter black beasties crawling around would soon grow tiresome.

I actually think Telltale's style of storytelling and gameplay would suit the franchise better than a shooter. Pull it all back to a bunch of characters who are vulnerable and isolated, have just one or two aliens attacking them and let the player worry and grieve for the fate of these survivors.

Depends on which version of the film you watch -- the theatrical cut doesn't mention her fate at all. It was added in the SE to contextualise the strong attachment Ripley develops with Newt.
