Aliens: Colonial Marines
« on: February 11, 2013, 03:20:57 am »
So is this game going to be shit? Because I think it's going to be shit. I watched a bit of a video and it looked shit.

It looks like it's a cowadoody with Aliens, rather than the squad based methodical tactical shooter I was hoping for.

So, I guess this is just a general thread for talking about how this game looks shit and we aren't buying it and why the fuck did they release this but not Yakuza 5 in English fuck this gay earth.

If semmie says it's good, is that proof that it's shit?

Is the game even out yet? When did you buy it? It looks so, so bad.

i dont know if games are all about action only. but i prefer the action in alien vs predator tho. also the graphics on a vs p are way better. but i love colonial marines for it special surprises in the story so far. tho i have to admit it has something of bioshock it gave me that feeling when i started in campaign where suddenly that tunnel was colapsing. same like bioshock innit?

Man, I gotta say, it looks terrible. It's walking through corridors while paper mache aliens run at you slowly so you can shoot them with a gun that sounds like a water pistol. There's no tension, no strategy, no horror just shooting weak-ass aliens.

Remember when this game was meant to be a survival-horror strategic shooter? Where you were supposed to be shitting your pants in fear because that killing machine with acid blood was making it's way towards you through the vents? Now it looks like some castrated mindless shooter. The AI companion is even just an invincible dude that spouts directions.

The graphics look bad, the gameplay looks worse, hell even the box art looks bad. How did they fuck this up so much?

The game has always looked terrible.  I don't know how anyone was excited for it.

It sounded like a great concept when it was first announced as being a squad based shooter with survival horror stylings. Where you had a tech guy that would need to man the radar motion sensor and a weapons guy/engineer etc. Early concepts were built around the idea of working as a team to survive the aliens and needing to be strategic and careful. It actually soudned really good and different. Now it's devolved into something... entirely different.

Ummm, are you sure you're not talking about Alien Trilogy from the PSX/Saturn days of gaming? Because that's how it reads to me. LOL!

The graphics look fantastic and it looks exactly like the movie, even going so far as to match Adrian Biddle's lighting. The sound effects sound as if they were ripped straight from the movie. The presentation so far looks and sounds quite faithful. From the gameplay footage I've watched - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3R8rek4WU1s - there is some strategy to it. It's just that the marketing and a lot of these online critics are trying to push the action, thinking that's what everyone wants to see.

The only complaint I may have, though this may have something to do with the difficulty setting, is that the Alien A.I. looks too simplistic. In Aliens vs Predator, those fuckers will stealth your ass. Often times, I felt like they were pulling the raptor trick from Jurassic Park. It was irritating, but scary as Hell.

Two SOLID complaints I have as of now are 1) It's another fuckin' FPS! Seriously, between Alien Trilogy and countless versions of Alien vs Predator, from Jaguar to now, it's little tired. I would have liked it had they made a third-person survival horror/shooter. Think Uncharted, but with fuckin' ALIENS! 2) The story erases Alien 3 and Resurrection from the narrative. Granted, Alien 3 is flawed and Resurrection's an atrocity, but they still count. It's revisionist history bullshit. It's like H20. "Well, Halloween 5 and 6 were shit, so we're gonna' forget they happened and pretend it's a sequel to Halloween 2." I dug H20, but that's just lazy writing in my opinion.

 there are four difficultys  the hardest has good AI.
the graphics are lesser then avsp but thats because it is supposed to be. it fits with the theme.
mademan and the media are misjudging the game too early

to mademan:
look yeah im always honest even tho being a hardcore segabilly
but this game is good and it will make u like it. in the beginning your isolated in rooms like in dead space 1
but then after it becomes wider. your not playing doom1 LOL
i watched the trailer today and even i admit it lloks garbage. lucky tho i never watched it. just got the game cause there is sega written on it. and i was just hoping in my mind sega wouldnt mess up the deal.


and guess what?

ITS A BAD ASS KILLING BITCHES GAME

...

Anyway, I'd be willing to try a demo, but there isn't any. Let me know if one comes up so I can say 'TOLD U SO' or 'THIS IS A BAD ASS KILLING BITCHES GAME'. If I morph into Semmie for the second one.
