    It's all the rage on the front page. Even had a few defenders in the comments. Bloody loonies :)

    18.85 delivered for the Limited Edition on PC! Buy buy buy!

    The comments are really quite amusing, and give some insight into what kind of "gamers" frequent HUKD, IMO. :p

    I'm sure some people are enjoying it especially if they went in not expecting much from the game. Good on 'em. Have fun, lads.

    It's a clusterfuck of a release and gearbox have been as dodgy as Silicon Knights about the whole development but hopefully a decent game can arise out of this turd after some patching and TLC not DLC.

    Actually it seems like it is. Still hate it though.

    I'm holding out for the best version (Wii U) the only problem is the Wii U version will cost 49.99 while the Xbox 360 and PS3 games will be around 10.

    The Wii U already has the best version, one you can't waste money on because it's not out.

    i hate it so much that i want to punch through my screen into the corpulent, pockmarked, repugnant approximation of a face of whomever typed it and scream maniacally down his elephantine auditory receptacle, 'ADDICTIVE!!!!!! YOU IGNORANT FUCKING FUCK!!!!! A!!!D!!!D!!!I!!!C!!!T!!!I!!!V!!!E!!!!! ADDICTIVE!!!!!! AAAAARRRGGHHHHH!!!!'

    i must say, it does agitate me somewhat.

    I don't think 'addicting' is a real word. I think it's a bullshit made up Internet Americanism. I bet the OED wouldn't accept it.

    @Triggerhappytel


    you're right it is, but it's passing over into their mainstream and soon it will spread like a cheap whore buttering a slice of wildfire.

    before we know it it will be everywhere like the extremely irritating word 'guys' and there will be no escape. entire civilisations will have to expunged, mankind recapitulated, reproduction controlled, language reconstructed and formulated so that no man or woman can bastardise it again.

    only then will we be truly free. innit.

    It's a real world, but most people use it in places they really mean to use addictive. For example, you'd say horse meat is addictive. It is so tasty, it is addicting a great number of people. As I understand it at least, I'm probably wrong it's MY wrong and I'm sticking with it!

    I still fancy this game. Looks a bit broken but if I can get it cheap one day I probably will. Don't think I'm a big enough fan of the series to get the most out of it though.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    The most unforgivable thing is the whole hype and lies surrounding this game, all the footage and demo's shown isn't from the actual game they were planning to release, and all those bullshit interviews where they sit and lie.

    It's difficult to enjoy even with the authentic atmosphere and fan service, because Mercenaries are your biggest enemy, the 2nd and 3rd level in the campaign is ALLLLL FUCKING HUMAN ENEMIES, no Aliens at all!! and this continues throughout the game, 70% Mercs, 30% Aliens..I'm serious! Hadley's hope is by far the best level, it's enjoyable and oozes atmosphere, there's plenty of tension.

    I played Alien V Predator 2010 just to compare and the Aliens look and act fucking AMAZING compared to this shite.

    I used a pre order Shift code which gives me an Upgraded Gear Boost. Anyone know what this actually is?

    Well, I've been enjoying it. My expectations were so low that when I finally got around to playing it.......I could see past all the glitchy shittyness and last gen graphics. I'm actually enjoying the story and the suspense!

    Even with the lowest expectations i found this to be an absolute shitfest. Ugly, unfinished visuals, a gameworld that doesn't react to your presence at all, enemies that are borderline retarded (when they aren't getting stuck in the scenery), invincible friendly AI that you can actually walk & shoot straight through, coupled to a story that's the worst kind of fan-fiction.

    Even if this was patched up & fixed, it'd still be a poor man's Doom 3 at best.

    Bearing in mind how shitty the ending of Borderlands was, and how uninspired HL Opposing Force was, and Randy Pitchfraud's lies about DNF and his 'hilarious' comments about the review graphs looking like "a pair of tits", mayhap I got my hopes up too high for A:CM.

    The stupidity of the story is what I can't forgive. It's like some desperate orgy of retconning to please the weenies who wanted Alien 3 to be 'moar guns and moar mareens', but too lazy to move the setting on to anywhere like a new location that would require an imagination.

    Your tune has changed so drastically it's akin to a dubstep dj suddenly going full on classical.

    So what exactly has triggered such emotional changes may I ask? Why is the game "shite" all of a sudden?

    He's right though, the Xenomorphs in AvP2010 move a lot more like actual xenomorphs. Until they get in that locked on hard attack thing where they look like a cutout on a stick.

    Among everything else, save possibly the E3 lies, the absolutely horrible fan-fic story is the absolute worst thing about the game.

    It's a phrase that's bandied around far too often nowadays, but it feels entirely appropriate here. It really is an insult to anyone who previously cared about the franchise. It's the ultimate example of "fuck you all" selfish writing and retconning.

    I think a lot of people were just taking Borderlands into account and forgetting about the rest of Gearbox's catalogue, which is... hit and miss, to say the least. Personally, I didn't even like Borderlands 2 very much.

    As Fox had final say it's final, conclusive proof that Fox doesn't give a shit about the IP. They've been whoring it out for years now.

    Maybe Disney could buy the rights? Ha.

    Completed Total Badass Difficulty last night with some random from France. I enjoyed it, hoping for single player DLC. Now to multiplayer stuff.

    Thanks to all the negative reviews my expectations were rock bottom. If you are a fan of the films there is enough in this game for you to like. Hudson....
