I think the last good game using the IP was Alien: Isolation. Good but not great.

I wouldn't mind another like it provided that the Xenomorph wasn't omniscient and gimmicky.

There's probably a mod to fix that.

There is. It makes the Alien actually bugger off to other parts of the map randomly. Playing at the middle difficulty (forgot what it was labeled) still had it hanging around near me enough, but it did feel way more fair.

"(Erase ALL canon after Aliens, BTW.)"

At least he got that part right.

Prolly would have been better than Colonial Mariners.

I can -accept- Alien 3 as actually having happened (the workprint version). Mainly because Alien 4 came out and it made 3 look like a masterpiece in comparison.

BTW, were's the goddam Aliens Director Cut 4k..??

Best SINCE T2. Trust me, I'ver seen a bunch of Dark Fate reviews, they all echo that it's the best SINCE T2.

Yes, non-Cameron. I only saw T3, of those. Enough to give up on the franchise. It has nowhere to go, anyway. It said all that it could say.

Oh, missed the non-Cameron mention. Gotcha.

T3 wasn't great.. but I did dig the ending. Anyways, back on topic. I'm out.

First 10 or so seconds of this trailer, Beamer.

I mean, yes, what it boils down to is bad writing, so we're sort of in agreement. But it's part of a recent trend of topics that get categorized as "woke". Is it over emphasized by some critics? Yes. Do the alt-right overly lean on pointing to it? Yeah. But as someone who just enjoys good cinema it does pull me right out of a movie because I know it's trying to cater to this recent trend Hollywood thinks it needs to cater to (and I liked the original C'sA remake back with Bill Murray).

[but T2 is also pretty women centric, and the general consensus is this was a lame movie but still the best Terminator sequel

General consensus was it's a lame movie?? What?? T2 is considered one of the best sequels, and / or action movies of all time in most of the circles I've ever paid attention to. And yes, another great example of a female lead where it wasn't an issue that she was female because the movie was written like she's just another character. Not something with a huge spotlight pointing out the fact.

Give examples. Maybe you just don't know how to pick movies?

Previous Ghostbusters movie, Terminator: Dark Fate, recent Charlie's Angels movie. It's a term referring to movies which suffered bad writing due to over emphasizing gender and / or racial politics. Basically just bad writing.

In 1986 we got Aliens and no one flipped out over a female action movie lead because it was simply a well written movie. When done right gender, race, etc. isn't an issue because it feels like you're watching something you can buy as actually happening in it's fictional form, instead of feeling like it's trying to carry a message instead of tell a story.

Him and Randy Pitchford should start a company together.

Boneworks is pretty cool but people really need their VR legs for it, I had a few friends get queasy at times. Probably should've started them off with Beat Saber or Elven Assassin instead haha.

Did you see the Into the Radius VR game mentioned further down on the Jan 29'th news feed? STALKER inspired VR survival shooter. Looks intri gueing.

I'll have to agree to disagree with KX. If Alyx is canceled I'd love to hear how it's referred back to as the killer app for VR in a few years.

Highly recommend the Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners game that just came out. Its flying under the radar but is an excellent game. Really fun/tense gameplay, lots of replay value and a decent story.

I saw this listed, but scrolled on by. I'll check this one out. Glad I got in on the Index before it became a unicorn.

I hope you guys don't turn this into another bicker-back-and-forth session. There's no gray area here. It doesn't matter if people like the game. It doesn't matter if the buzz is strong then dies down, and it doesn't matter if the game is even released. It only matters if the game pushes the sale of hardware. That's it. Go look up the Killer Application page on Wikipedia. It very clearly defines what condition has to meet for something to be officially identified as a KA. Half-Life: Alyx has met the condition.

No. All "killer apps" are remembered post release as such. If the game flops it will be referred to as something that drove sales pre-release and nothing more.

From wiki "is any computer program that is so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology,", it wont be proving anything if it's a flop.

It's not a killer app yet, because it isn't an app yet. It's not released. Everything so far is pre-release hype driving sales.

Sometimes sequels are designed with an 'everyone played the first one so lets just expand the game play instead of retread anything' mentality. Like a, what if the first game just kept going approach. So just as the levels became more vertical and elaborate in the first one, this one just acts as if the levels here are levels 17 (or w/e it is) -> onward from there.

Though also I agree with Quinn to some degree. Hopefully these new levels aren't too "video gamey" and are still grounded to some extent. That's more a preference though, this still looks fun either way.
