    I've been waiting for this for so long. I loved AvP game so much so I'm going to assume I'm going to love this one too.

    If this is half as good as Borderlands series it will be a very very good game.

    .....LMAO. I don't even know how to respond to that.

    I too have been watching and waiting for this game for years. Doesn't look like it's going to disappoint.

    Really excited for this game, I LOVE the Alien franchise, amazing movies, the universe is fantastic. Prometheus was also amazing. I really didn't like the AVP game though with the 3 separate storylines. Felt pretty shitty and the gameplay was rather clunky. This looks like a huge step up!

    I agree, been a while since a Aliens game looked this good.

    Yeah, that's why I'm going to love this a lot. We saw Ripley's side and hopefully we will see the Marines' side.

    I am expecting a lot from this game.

    I played this at eurogamer last september , managed to grab loads of goodies too , bandana/t-shirt/ poster etc etc and all you could do was play as marines in multiplayer (sega staff played as aliens on the other side of the stall).
    All im going to say off first impressions was 'Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!' just wait everyone when you play multi and you manage to find the smart gun nostalgia to the max, everything was so authentic to the movie sound wise. Granted they wouldnt show anything else of the game due to it being under lock and key but i had to go back and have multiple goes at this game, was awesome. The only gripe i had is that the aliens take you down in like 1 or most the time 2 swipes, they can insanely jump long distances too so im praying it all balances out on release.
    Been waiting for this for a a couple of years now. Collectors edition box purchased....hurry the fuck up febuary!!!!!!!!

    edit- i have a load of photos of a guy dressed up as a marine and a guy in a full on alien suit that was there advertising the game but the quality is proper shit due to it being quite dark inside and camera flashes are frowned upon in that place. so ill refrain from posting them up :P

    I got to play it at MCM London in May and as you said got to play marines and Sega was Aliens. The tactic is to group up as marines and use your superior range and fire power to kill the Aliens.

    I have some pics of myself from it.

    Looks great, I've been told I'll have a copy waiting for me to review on release day but I would have bought it any way, free is just even better :P It looks good so far and I have a lot of confidence in gearbox at the minute. Hope I can convince a friend to play with me though.

    The Graphics wont be up to much since Xbox/ps3 are coming to the end of cycle. The Wii U version should be pretty good.

    i doubt we will see anything amazing until its built from the ground up for wii u and even then it probably wont happen in the first bunch of games.. just like 360 and ps3 (even the pc game doesnt look massively different).

    you have to admit the wii u controller is perfect for aliens and its tracker device.. hell its just like zombie u and its tracker with damn rats / birds setting it off freaking you out.. will be worse with fast moving friggin aliens.

    I hate how Aliens turned from the ultimate cosmic horror into your regular space bugs/lizards cannon fodder. Though I guess it was inevitable once firearms were introduced to the franchise.

    But I've yet to see a good Aliens game since AvP2. I can only hope Gearbox won't fuck up this one.
    That's why you need me.... Need someone to punish you for your sins.
