    Without question! It's because of Cameron we now get "bad ass" FPS games based on the Alien franchise. Imagine if Aliens & Resurrection didn't exist, and video game developers would be creative for a change, we would get outstanding single player survival horror games based on both Scott's Alien & Fincher's Alien³ where the played would need to solve environmental puzzles with multiple solutions to outsmart the creature all while attempting to resque your crewmembers/fellow prisoners.

    Instead this is what we get. The equivalent of fastfood in video game form. Yay!

    @-cerberus-

    I agree, Aliens is always the inspiration games sadly...but let's be perfectly honest here, Scott and Fincher made amazing films but when it comes to games most of us just want to shoot xenomorphs in the face with a pulse rifle :)

    I really loved the spectrum game Alien - the top down nostromo one.
    But I also really love shooting xenomorphs in the face with a pulse rifle. Doesn't have to be either/or.

    @-cerberus-

    Thing is if you look at other genres you'd still end up shooting them, the Aliens RPG looked good but it was still shooty, shooty, bang, bang.

    Saw this interesting tweet by Mikey Neumann yesterday:

    I mean that in terms of access and success. I did write a canonical sequel to Aliens, so… halfway there?
    Who said A:CM wasn't canon then?

    ;)

    Cant help thinking this has got that "7/10, fun for a while, probably worth a rental" vibe to it.....

    360 Limited Edition £29.99 at 2game.com (I know I haven't heard of them either, but the reviews seem glowing)

    Pre-ordered it, already feeling buyers remorse.

    I thought the multiplayer at the expo was fantastic. And I won a t-shirt. I'm in.

    Was really looking forward to this but my heart sank watching that trailer.This game is supposed to be all about tension.Not just constant action/shooting.I still shudder at aliens vs predator game on 360 it was so awful.The ps2 version nailed it why not just keep it like that with better graphics?

    Buying a season pass for this game is a waste, it will be long forgot before you even get your moneys worth..

    That is a daft decision by the devs

    Oh dear, was almost tempted to break my Steamworks sale fodder rule as it was aliens but so much DLC that they try to sell you it in bulk guarantees I'll get it for a fiver down the line.

    I prefer them infinitely though to the micro transaction route though, much easier to say no to.

    Yeah but both are for abusing silly people and should not be encouraged. I'm amazed people buy the pass things.

    I will be spending my moolah elsewhere, that's for sure. GOTY/Complete Edition for a tenner next year, maybe.

    $30 is practically the same price I've bought the PC retail version for (£19.85).

    I won't be in a hurry to spend any more cash.

    I've only just caught up on the recent trailers. I think I can actually taste my disappointment. What a fucking waste of an excellent IP.

    That looks like the level that was at the expo, in one round I played we all pretty much ended up back to back like that, it worked.

    Probably because the testers weren't trying too hard to take us out.
