I seriously lol. The AI is amazing.


1. That's a Boiler Alien, and they don't attack unless they know you're there. The game informs you of this.
2. It's not made by Gearbox

Stupid gif, is simply stupid.

laughing at me for hyping a game for myself?

I couldn't give a rats ass if I bought the only copy that sold.

Man, I miss the days when gamers decided for themselves.

Huge fan of the Aliens movies so I have little doubt I'll eventually play this...but it'll be when I get off of a Gamefly used games sale for $7.

I don't have a problem enjoying crappy games sometimes if I have a reason to play them (They are a sequel to a series I've enjoyed in the past....they've developed a cult following). I liked Ninja Gaiden 3. I LOVED Deadly Premonition (Both sub-70 games). Same goes for crappy movies. I don't expect Friday the 13th to win any academy awards, but i'll be damned if I'm not going to watch every installment that comes out.

That said, I wouldn't get online try to defend these games as the greatest technical achievements ever made. They're bad games out of which I'm still able to derive some entertainment value. I don't see why certain people feel the need to embark on a hopeless campaign to convince random internet folk the game is good when 95% of the the people reviewing it and playing it are saying otherwise. As long as you like the game, it should be good enough

Also if a game rates lower than a 70% it has some major issues. Below a 60% and it's likely garbage. Whine all you want about the way VG reviews work...its gonna stay that way.

Funny how an IGN review is only "accurate" when it mimics what people want it to. Remember that incredible amount of crying when -popular game A- was rated half a point lower than it "should have" been?

@CammyApple

Funny how people still generalize everyone as either liking or disliking ign and then using that as an excuse to call random posters flip floppers/hypocrites.

This. SO much this. People who've not played the game are lining up their 'smackdowns' based on nothing more than what they've heard. REGARDLESS of what you think of the games or their reviews, base your 'attacks' on what you know.

wow, seems like review is bad across the board, btw, average imo is 6/10, 7/10 is considered good and usually just critics being overly critical

Im on the way to pick it up! So excited!


Does it bug some of you knowing someone will still enjoy it, that few here still have minds of their own....that not everyone is part of the mindless collective hive mind that is called GF?

I'm wondering if any of them have played it.

It's a decent shooter. Just make sure you play on Ulitmate Badass, because i'm stuck on a bit and i've died so many times, since a few quick strikes kills you on that difficulty.

it's not a bad game by any means, it's just a nice use of the aliens franchise and a competent shooter. They way these review scores are being waved around, you'd think it was borderline broken or something.

Hmm. I really want to try this game, but, being a Sega game, it'll drop in price like a rock, so I'll wait.
