The opportunity to work with the amazing people at SEGA and Fox to build a next generation video game in the Alien universe is one of those dream projects that is a perfect fit for our capability and our passion."

ok.. so they mod existing software.. how's that design talent?
(not saying that isn't difficult.. but I can probably name like 5 other studio's that would do the alien franchise much more justice.. ones that the word 'talent' would hold meaning for)

thats very different from creating your own game from the ground up

Gearbox isnt bad.

Brothers in Arms was pretty damn good game and pretty interesting to boot.

And Opposing Froce was an excellent expansion pack, probably one of the beter ones released.

I think they could easily pull this off. I wish it was Monolith but well, cant have everything.

And Why is it bad using an existing game engine that were used for Unreal 3 ??

BioShock used it and that did well better hate the people that used the engine for that roll eyes (sarcastic)

that was a total conversion.. thats like saying I should hate jedi outcast for using quake 3 engine.. the games are unrelated, whereas the 'expansions' gearbox did are very much unchanged from the source material roll eyes (sarcastic)

It still doesnt mean its not a good game, or that they dont have talent.

It doesnt matter considering Brothers in Arms was a wicked game.

Well my concern is now they are making a game from the ground up... right? (I dont recall reading this aliens game using any existing technology)

they haven't ever made a game from the ground up (to my knowledge), which is why I think this game is going to tank hard.. creating millions of sad pandas

Holy shit. FVCKING HELL!!!! Im so excited for this. I remember reserving a copy of this back in 2000 for the PS2. I was broken hearted when the game was cancelled. It was the only game cancellation that actually disappointed me a bit. Aliens VS Predator 1&2 were great games. The second game was an exceptionaly popular venture. I have been wondering when we would get another Aliens or predator game, other than shitty Strategy games.

I wonder if they will go off of what the original Colonial Marines was doing. I remember...,Colonial Marines made it to Beta stages before it was cancelled.

Brothers in Arms is their game, and it was pretty damn good.

I assuming their using an Unreal, or some other engine, or if they are not then probably using their building an engine for all the other new games they are doing.

But in the end, they have produce quality work so I dont see a problem.

I'm a little pissed off that they delayed the game and wouldn't show it at E3. I wanted to play the demo dang it! From what I have seen in the vids, the game looks like it's gonna be great but after seeing the vids, I'm even more pissed off that they delayed the game. Thanks a whole friggin lot Gearbox mad

Delayed usually means good.

Very often a game should be delayed but people get mad, they release earlier, and the game usually turns out bad.

If companies didnt delayed games, we wouldnt have great titles like Half Life, Half Life 2, every Will Wright game, every Blizzard game and pretty much any great developer.

Its annoying but it works out in the end.

Delayed videogames = Gamers killing themselves.

True that delaying might be good to make the game a little better but waiting for months and possibly years would just drive a person insane. Gearbox, release this game early so you can save a thousand lives from killing themselves.

Sure.

Who gives a crap about a good game?

Anyways, how is it delayed, they have released a date yet.

I dont really care about delays. I used too, but not now. So a game gets delayed a half year, I dont really care. The only thing I dont like is when the game is about to be released, and they delay a week.
