You, Redmask, are now aware of the global corporatocracy? Because that's what matters.

Because labor unions did such a good job transforming Detroit into a socialist utopia and the teachers union did such a good job in making sure our public schools aren't ranked among the worst in the world...

Ok but none of that is the unions job. And both issues are far too complex to be able to just say "grr unions!".

No it's easier to say "grr corporations!"

Union membership is at a historic low for a reason. They ran out their welcome with greed, bullying, and politics.

Funny how he got elected in 2008 running against this very thing.

I used to think lawyers were the worst of the worst. Now I know it's politicians.

You're in luck because our current president was/is both!

The NSA must be breaking alot of laws and wiping their ass with the Constitution.Its really scary actually. I am surprised its even close to being legal.

It's only "legal" because the Obama administration redefined what spying means. Funny how he got elected in 2008 running against this very thing.

The bad thing is once you get superpowers less than 1 hour into the campaign you never have to drive again.

That was kind of the point, the driving in SR3 was only an aside anyway used to ferry you from mini-game to minigame.

They'd really have to basically change the characteristics of the vehicles into extreme futuristic/fantasy to match the speed/crazyness of the superpowers they put into the game and tthat wouldn't have been a bad idea.

That would have been great. There's already some of it with the funky Zin cop cars and hover bike things. It feels like Volition is moving toward a full on cyberpunk setting.

Although the SR3 minigames are largely vehicle based, I can't recall a single one in SR4. They spent a lot of extra time refining the controls and upgrades for a whole section of the game you never have to use.

Very fun crazy game that successfully takes everything from SR3 and improves it immensely. They finally nailed down vehicle controls. The bad thing is once you get superpowers less than 1 hour into the campaign you never have to drive again. It's all running and leaping across skyscrapers like somekinda Superman/Flash/Spiderman hybrid.

I first thought it was a car combat game with some of the worst manufactured vehicles in the world totally falling apart when they barely scrape each other.

Is this what publishers seriously think works these days...taking pre-orders before you show anything of the game (especially a brand new IP)?

Sounds kind of like Kickstarter doesn't it?

No. Not at all when Kickstarter donations goes into developing a particular game. The money from preorders primarily goes to the retailer and publisher.

So they just took the Tank gameplay mechanic and rolled with it?? Very strange choice, I would have a loved a new (not Zombie) game in the same vein of L4D but 4vs1 seems kind of crap, at least on paper.

The concept has been done before with The Hidden: Source and the previous AvP games. Truthfully they are beyond concept since it's long been proven as fun and awesome when you have smart developers.

Nah, Brother None is a good guy. You could be thinking of Roshambo (Rosh) who hasn't been around in several years. He was a dumb fucker and a coward.

Like I said before, most of the people who post at NMA have always been good normal people. It's just every generation of admins seem to let a handful of scumbags get into position as forum moderators and drive the place right into the ground. Then it's inevitably rebooted with a new crowd. The Gearbox forums are way waaaaay worse and has no hope of redemption. It's part of their policy to treat people like shit.

Ah ... Blues News! What happened to you? You really have become to PC gaming what that bitter and twisted "No Mutants Allowed" people are to Fallout. Two and a half pages of whining and not one positive comment. Reality check: You all sound like a bunch of self-entitled little bitches. GROW UP!

Well all I can say is FINALLY I can get to play this game as I wanted to play. It may be late in the day, but at least I now get to play.

When was the last time you actually visited NMA? They largely embraced New Vegas and one of their admins, Brother None, currently works at InXile on Wasteland 2. Most of the people are pretty cool. The problem with the place now is a couple of the forum moderators/admins are confirmed bigots and huge racists from the Netherlands who unfairly target normal level headed posters while giving a free pass to the most hate filled anti-Semitic scumbags you'll find anywhere on the internet. Because of them the forum activity dropped off the planet in the last year until Brother None was forced to step in. Whining about Interplay/Bethesda/whatever is so 10 years ago.

2013 was the year of ruined franchises and some of the biggest disappointments I can recall in almost 2 decades. Aliens, Total War, Sim City, Lucas Arts finally dying, it was all a mess. Watching EA still trying to squeeze blood out of this thing is an embarrassment.

No offence, but you missed my point. In ANY Aliens game done before, there is always slow times filled with horror moments, and as well action times.

The action in the first (and best) movie was different from the sequel though. The original was far and away the scariest, and all the action was a terrifying culmination of the supremely crafted tension leading up to it. It also consisted only of violence inflicted by the Alien upon the hapless crew, yet it remains one of THE great sci-fi movies of all time. I don't want cannon-fodder aliens; that shit is old hat by now after tons of games. I want to feel the tension and the terror of the first 'Alien', and this game is looking to be EXACTLY what those of us who groan at yet another gung-ho-space-marine-with-a-pulse-rifle-gunning-down-aliens-by-the-truckload game have been wanting since FOREVER. I'll be tuning out the haters on this one.

Movies and video games are very different creatures. 10 hours of hiding from a lone xenomorph would get boring and few will stick around long enough to finish the game. Imagine if the first Alien movie was 10 hours instead of just under 2. The movie works because you don't get burned out on the horror aspect.

If they add multiple aliens to spice things up later on (imagine something like the Jurassic Park raptors or whatever) we might have a game. But right now, Sega and Creative Assembly aside, there is nothing here that gets me excited. To life-long fans such as Shataan and myself the alien and Ripley are like family members. The Nostromo is a second home. The horror of it has long since faded away and we want to see something new that somehow doesn't shit on the franchise we grew up with and love.

I'm calling it. Alien Isolation will be a 4-5 hour buggy mess at release with the worst AI since A:CM.
