still not even close to the e3 demo they showed. the e3 demo just oozed quality. especially in hadleys hope, the lighting and and lightening is superb, it feels like a movie. but not even close in the actual game.

randy pitchford should spend less time being randy and more time being productive

Updating their graphics or just tweaking the AI won't fix this game. I bought ACM thinking it would be a survival-horror, but its not. They completely missed the point of every alien film, including Aliens. Its basically a disservice to fans and borderline insulting. The story is on par with a 12 year old writing Fan Fiction.

+1

its an action game, and the action itself is terrible lol

A little more structure, especially for unaffiliated loners, would be welcome. But over all it should still be up to the players to determine what they find strategically important, while perusing some kind of overarching goal.

playing the game with a good outfit and really good platoon leader makes all the difference.

a lot of leaders don't understand what makes the game fun for players - some will have you capture almost empty bases for hours if you are unlucky - there is strategic value there sure, but my god its as boring as euro truck simulator.

My number one criticism of this game is that it was atrocious for newcomers. Thrown down in the middle of a fight with no clue how to even control their character made many people say "screw this" and quit immediately.

That's because every single first person shooter for the last 15 years or so has had the same default WASD and mouse aiming controls.

If you have never played a first person shooter fair enough, but the game spawns you at the warp gate where you can't die.

Still this VR training is a very nice addition since you can give all of those new weapons in an easy manner and with all of their upgrade options.

I gotta say, the graphics, animation and effects leave a lot to be desired.
Blind much?

Thats what I ask myself with people like you. I think its simple fanboyism, if such obvious things are not seen...
Animations often look far cheaper than before. Especially the generic ones. I could leave that as subjective, but looking at trees and ground textures, even someone as blind as you should see how shitty they look. Also bullet impact dust clouds are huge. Almost cant see your target anymore because of them. That auto eye contrast effect also sucks again and is only annoying. And the ancient scope effect is hated in the community already.

Just to name a few...


the animations are ok, but there is no animation blending like in some modern games so the transitions between them look stiff

edit i really hope the audio gets a make over before release too it's terrible in the alpha

The narrator is from ShackTactical they are a serious group of players. Very difficult to get into their group. Also all super cool guys!

This was an OUTSTANDING video!

Yeah but i wish he would stop talking in manner that makes it sound like comma's are full stops

Game looks super cool though. I will be raining death from the skies on release day!

I was very pumped to play this, but unfortunately after trying the BETA, I found the gameplay very underwhelming. It gets old REALLY fast, too.

The graphics are pretty sub par as well - although the smoke, explosion and blood effects are top notch.

yeah it's certainly no magicka

btw paradox are soon to release leviathan - which kinda looks like magicka crossed with navy ships and gratuitious space battles. - that actually looks fun.

does anyone know if this game has a dedicated "shout" button like in chivalry? nothing like running down a hill with 10 people shouting slogans and such

WAAAAAAGGGHHHH!!!!

I'm not buying those comments from "people that have connections to the game"
Especially about the graphics. It wasn't just coding, lighting and texture quality that are different between the e3 demo and real thing. You levels themselves are entirely different layouts with different art assets etc
The e3 demo is defs a "This is how we want the game to be" scripted/orchastrated or even pre-rendered sequence. And then they tried to make the game that way and failed. miserably.

I also don't buy the "SEGA and the two developers couldnt agree on the type of game they were making" you're telling they didnt have things planned out?

Its all BS - you can tell that the game only started development after the e3 2012 "gameplay" "demo" was shown and its a rush job and turned out as such.

"Hey guys, we need to stay in business and keep making money. So, even tough LoG was just released, and some of you haven't even tried it yet--well, we don't care, and we're going to--regardless--shove another game down your throats this early in time, because it's all about us and staying in business even though that negatively affects you by the fact that we'd be shoving another game down your throats already."

"Creating a DLC would not have felt right." You mean, not have felt right to your business in the form of profits? Ahh, yes, that's what I thought you meant. Okay.

I'm confused by your post. You obviously have a different perspective on the game and/or the developer, but the game was released nearly a year ago for $14.99, and even less during a promotional launch. LoG II probably won't be release until the end of this year, or first part of next, so how is it they shoved either one down our throats?

I'm just curious, as maybe I'm missing something. HAH, wouldn't be the first time.


How is it you feel that the lifetime of a game should be only 2 years? Why should someone move onto LoG 2 just because your business needs to survive constantly? Not our problem the business needs to keep 10 people employed with salaries or whatever.

If LoG is so great, then it's the kind of game that goes for 10 years or more. ESPECIALLY SINCE A LEVEL EDITOR WAS RELEASED.

I MEAN, C'MON.

fucktards.

so you know, just don't buy the new one?
nobody is holding a gun to your head and making you buy it.


And yes businesses do exist to make money.. but some of them are actually proud of their products and do actually put in real effort rather than just being out to be purely profit focused.


i found the first game a little bit shallow in the combat as well, but was still quite fun.

i think devs have lost sight of what Alien is all about. why not do something like a survival/escape style game more in line with original film. allow the player to use the environment and available tools to plan and execute their escape. in the original film the crew only had weapons that they created themselves and they didn't know if they would have any effect at all.

mowing down waves of aliens with a pulse rifle effectively neuters what is arguably the most terrifying movie monster of all time.

idk just an idea..

Yeah exactly. The Aliens in the films are not bro fodder, they were smart and worked around obstacles, constantly outwitting the humans. Only one of the AvP FPS games has really nailed that feel and Colonial Marines goes so far out of bounds with established information it's not even funny.

I'm not sure an Alien RPG even makes sense necessarily, I just don't see adapting the universe well with the kinds of RPG mechanics most people expect.

+1

RPG could work, but not in terms of skills but upgrading weapons and equipment to meet new puzzles and threats.


but having aliens stand right next to you and attack you in an almost turn-based manner is just nothing like aliens at all.

i know it probably makes for better gameplay, but it seems really silly how enemies from a room or warehouse next door don't join the fight, or at least they shouldn't pretend I didn't just kill about 20 of their friends in the same facility - don't tell me they didn't notice shooting, explosions, broken glass and that helicopter i shot down :S
