This game is blatiant Pay 2 Win rubbish, which rewards you for using your daddy's credit card, rather than developing any skill.

AVOID! AVOID! AVOID!

Play FireFall and Defiance instead.

wtf are you talking about? For starters the game is ONLY PVE!

the game is a blast and I haven't dropped a single dollar into it. I would recommend waiting for the final release though since they haven't finished adding in all of skills and maps and guns etc, it lacks a little variety atm.

This is Xerxes. All personal report to the download site

BTW would anyone be interested in doing a graphical / engine remake for this?

I can map like a boss with the NS2 spark engine (unknownworlds.com) It seems like it would be a fantastic engine for it.

we could use the original voice recordings and sound effects possibly

And I think the post mortem on it is going to be fascinating (if anyone alive will ever admit to having worked on it).

I'd LOVE to hear what happened, but the silence from gearbox so far is hardly surprising.


I can't even come up with a reason why they have fucked this up so badly. They must know that now, they are burned in the industry, 20 century fox is probably unleashing the hell-hounds right about now. And the damage this travesty does to the Alien IP.. holy hell.

Anyone else think this is the 80s Atari ET of 2013? This might even cause a video game crash haha

Honestly, after seeing the difference in quality between the "demo" and the "final" I will never order a gearbox product until there's a clear consensus on what the final game looks like.

Well that is pretty amazing. I don't remember watching any of that, no wonder people are upset.

That is amazing. I kept thinking that "this game video looks worse than the e3 one, but maybe my expectations are just getting higher"

but nope, it was actually getting worse and worse.

So the question is, is this the patch that will make it look as a good as the demo?

I actually wouldn't mind the last 3hrs of the game being a boring bug hunt if it looked stunning every step of the way.

Just another example "game" riding the coattails of a beloved movie franchise resulting in a blatant cash grab. As long as people keep buying this shit, they will keep making it. Gearbox, TimeGate Studios, and Sega, you are all disgraceful. It's embarrassing. Don't buy it!

I especially enjoy the interview videos of Randy Pitchford from Gearbox saying how "they are not settling" and are not "milking a franchise." You are a fucking liar Randy Pitchford. Fuck you. I'm I angry? Yes, I liked the Aliens franchise and it's been fucked again. Randy Pitchford you are a hack.

Randy PITCHford is the used car salesman ever. He does game development in is spare time

Edit : Guess I'll be playing more Natural Selection 2 http://unknownworlds.com/ns2/

if feels much more like an AVP game than this ever will.

im really dissapointed with this - it feels like it was made along side AvP 2 about 10 years ago.

everything just feels old - almost like its a game designed for phones or something.

Let's expand upon this comment..

Name three 'faithful' and 'quality' game-related films. I can't think of two that I would actually want to re-visit more than the first viewing (meaning, low in quality).

Not saying you're not gonna be able to... I just can't think of more than one...

Silent Hill, Mortal Kombat, both Tomb Raider movies, Max Payne, Prince of Persia. You might not have liked some of them, but those were solid movies with solid actors and scripts. Some would add resident evil (not me), but I'd add Doom (loved it). I don't know if you'd count the recent Mortal Kombat web series, but these were awesome.

I'm proud of you for saying "Silent Hill" - that was my "one." Too bad Revelations wasn't that great - but it wasn't terrible either.

MK was cool when I was 12 - I re-watched it recently. Effects technology advancement ignored, it really wasn't very good. Good call with Doom though, despite it being 'not great' or very in-depth, it was reasonably honest with the material.
Huh? DOOM was awful IMO. I watched it over my Christmas 2012 break. :/

+ 1 doom was a terrible movie - i liked the first person bit though, but apart from that it was just terrible.

the story didn't even remotely follow that of the doom games. apart from being on mars.

event horizon's story was closer to the doom story

If anyone from hollywood makes a Half-life movie its gonna suck. END of story.

Now if someone that is creative makes a half-life movie, e.g. the guy that did District 9, or if QT tried a sci-fi movie, it could be great.

Do half-life 1 from 3 different points of view - like in the expansion packs.
1 point of view from gordon freeman
another from Shepherd (the soldier in Opposing forces)
and another from the security guard from the Blue Shift expansion.

that would be cool.

someone give me $50 mil and i'll make a movie thats awesome.

Ah, just like people with no acting experience that think they could act in a film, people with no directing experience could take 50 million and make a great film.

No.


Funny cause I was just thinking that there are people that have heaps of experiene either acting or directing, yet they hopeless - and there is a sea of them.

So... to sum up... if anyone in Hollywood does a HL movie it's going to suck, but these wo other guys who are also from Hollywood would do it well.

Riiiiiiiiight.


Also, QT doing a HL movie would just be Alyx and Gordon discussing 70s music and people they've made out with for 75 minutes, with the camera oddly lingering on Alyx's bare feet, followed by 10 minutes of action.


i'd prefer that over Half-Life: The Fast and Furious Dude Bro edition

or in JJ abrams case, lets take the cool bits from the previous movies and then write a really illogical and unbelievable script to make them roughly fit together.

this is one of those traditional games where each update and new video makes it look better and more fun than the previous video.

unlike those modern games, that seem to look worse and worse as they approach release lol.


the beta is a lot of fun with 3 friends or even randoms - its basically what mass effect would be like co-op but with better powers and moves.

Is this the same Gabe Newell that was saying that Windows 8 was bad because the store is a closed environment? And now he's saying that their own "pc" is not going to be as open source as a normal pc? hahah i think he's had one too many p0rtal cakes, and the icing has gone to his brain.

Thats a shame I find that amazing, people will buy the same CoD game over and over but will not play a superior free game

I've yet to see any real benefits to being in a squad in PS2.

  • Squad bonus XP
  • Squad organization and teamwork (waypoints; nearest deploy point near leader is Green; you can see squad members on the HUD; squad text and voice communication; etc.)
  • Squad spawn beacons
  • Squad/platoon-locked vehicles are open to you (and a number of squads do lock their vehicles, even if they're open squads)

  • You can solo, but it's definitely more rewarding when you're squaded.

    If you're just in it for the XP, then maybe it's not that much more rewarding, but then I don't know why you'd play this game at all.
    I played four hours solo and four hours in a squad and both ended up at the same level. I found solo to be more rewarding so far, both in terms of experience points and of gameplay experiences.

    Frankly I've done the squad leader thing and I know what to look for so I can position myself accordingly (in the thick of it with my heavy or flanking/supporting with my infiltrator). And with a majority of players (I have played with) in PS2 not communicating, zerging, and the way benefits are awarded, I currently find solo to be better.

    public squads don't work too well unless you have a squad leader or platoon leader coordinating everything.

    you'll realise that playing as an organised outfit is beneficial once you see 20 tanks roll into a base and surround it from a distance where enemy rocket launchers arent able to lock onto them. These tanks rain down fire as sunderers let lose troops that can safelty capture things in the chaos.
    Not to mention you have at least 12 or more aircraft domination in the sky and anything left on the ground.

    And then you think you are safe because the vehicles can't get inside the main facility. well, thats when you create a choke point on the small unshielded exits/entrys.
    But of course the other team being organised rushes in some invisible infiltrators through the front door and some light assaults are air dropped through the top of the facility. The light assaults start shooting people from the top and back, and the infiltrators take out the shields to let the vehicles in.

    Its all over pretty quickly

    Unfortunetly I was on the unorganised faction when this happened to us, but it was epic to see it working, we just could not hold them off, they working perfectly in unison

    wtf this has got to be a joke right?

    So now when your motherboard has a minor problem, you can't just replace the mobo, you have to replace the $300 CPU as well?

    AMD is looking good again.

    lol. fuck these newer generation games.

    back in the day, in the 90s, quake 1 was released and had a console and gave you all the commands you could ever want to configure it. guess what one of those commands was? yup. fov.

    people used fov 90, 100, 110, and 120. whatever they wanted.

    go fuck yourselves, next-gen developers.
    I generally agree with you, but the problem is not in all "newer generation games", it's solely caused by (shitty) Console to PC ports, because for consoles, a lower FOV is correct.

    the correct FOV is the one I choose to set. end of story.


    oh look planetside has a built in FoV slider. whats that? its also free? *runs away*
