That's nothing to be ashamed of though. It's ok to like unpopular games. I enjoy playing Thor on 360 because my bloodline goes back to Norway and I can appreciate the concept of mythology as pop culture. It's like giving a Jewish kid a game with Jesus in it, except we Aryans don't murder our gods.

No, you should definitely care about the judgements of other people. If I learned anything from life, it is this.

I care about the judgments of people who matter. The others, I just have fun with.

While 2.5 is far too low in my opinion, around 4-6 is fair given what I've played so far. This game feels about as broken to me as Resident Evil 6.

And it's not like nobody's done a decent Aliens game before, so it's not like they can make the excuse that it's impossible to make a good Aliens game.

It's not the worst game ever it's just it isn't doing much new or different, certainly not in looks. The lag on co-op is the only thing that's really dragging it down for me and the fact that they couldn't introduce something extra when you play co-op. Instead of the same scripted character movements of each player.

The graphics don't look that bad as many "graphic whores" claim, the mechanics of the gameplay are just broken and the AI must be one of the worst I've ever seen in a videogame, at least it's one that I can clearly see it's faults and one that annoys me

The facial animations and variety are pretty shoddy though. You play as Ray Liotta and Bishop could be more defined.

I would like somebody to compare it to the DOOM 3 HD rerelease.
02-13-2013, 02:35 AM
Yo, this shit reminds me of DOOM 3 on the Microsoft Xbox 360 home entertainment console.

Yeah, it's a mediocre game given a slight lift by the license.

I'm liking it well enough though, it definitely could and should have been more.

It generally sounds like Colonial Marines is a game i'll hop on when Steam Sale season comes around.

Sounds like a decent plan.

I'm hoping the game can be improved a but through patches.
I mean I know they can't fix the story or anything but maybe they can improve the AI and textures and whatnot.
Hopefully they release some decent DLC as well, maybe even some single-player content.
02-13-2013, 10:21 AM
One of the devs (apparently) has said that they're hoping to improve the story through DLC. Might make it atleast a bit more fun to play in co-op.
02-13-2013, 10:44 AM
Yes yes fanboys give us more monies to get the real story.

Still responds to BLOO
I'll wait for the game to hit the
bargain garbage bin.
02-13-2013, 11:16 AM
I'll probably Gamefly two years after the fact like I did with AvP and not be surprised at how bad it is, just like AvP.
02-13-2013, 11:26 AM
More than I'll do for Blops.
02-13-2013, 11:28 AM
This? This right here? This is why I don't venture into the forums.
I think my biggest issue with every Alien/AvP game I've ever played is that the gunplay is so unsatisfying. I haven't played CM yet (?), but based on the videos I've seen it looks like you just aim your gun in the general direction of a Xeno and wait for it to fall over, same as it was with AvP (and even the better, older AvP games). Where's the damn feedback? When I shoot a motherfucker I want to feel like I'm shooting a motherfucker; in these games, I never know when I'm doing any damage.
Fix that and at least the battle portions would be tolerable.
And maybe the AI, too.
