MCP: Aliens Versus Predator Returns! - Page 4

post #151 of 289
I'll be getting the pc flavor for sure, for LAN games at home with friends.
post #152 of 289
Same here, provided the news is positive.

Please don't joke about a NEW AvP movie...

I keep getting more and more excited about this game.
post #156 of 289
Predator hunt sounds cool.

No Alien lifecycle multiplayer this time? Facehugging, chest-bursting, and eventually evolving into the queen was my favorite part of AVP2's multiplayer.
post #157 of 289
When did I miss that there was going to be 3 separate 1st player campaigns? I thought it would be one campaign just done from 3 separate perspectives. Wow. No wonder it took so long to develop.

Infestation trailer- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZscVvFF4XA

Going to be playing this today! Article as soon as I can get one up.

Looking forward to the Demo tomorrow. Shame it's only Multiplayer but as least it lets you play as all three species. It's a shame there's no single player demo, because really with a game like AvP the biggest thing, for me, about it is the tension and atmosphere of single player.
post #160 of 289
That looks really fun.

Is it just me, or do the models and textures look pretty bad in these recent videos?
post #161 of 289
Yeah, I've remained pretty unimpressed by the visuals.

I'm still pretty leery of AVP, given Rebellion's track record lately.
post #162 of 289
Sniper Elite and Dredd vs. Death give me hope that Rebellion can pull this out of the bag, but the stuff they've been making recently has been so boring it's hard to hold out hope.
post #163 of 289
I also think the graphics are pretty weak but at least they seem to be paying attention to the MP which is probably where the real value of the game will be since the campaign mode is supposedly quite short despite having three species to play as.
post #164 of 289
The original AvP wasn't exactly attractive either. It was just the atmosphere and surprisingly satisfying ability to decapitate and maim your enemies.

Sniper Elite was pretty hideous to look at. They're just fun games.

Saying that, the recent videos have made me temper my expectations a little. It'll all come down to the multiplayer which sounds like it'll be yet another balancing nightmare. Especially the Predator.
post #165 of 289
I have fond memories of Survivor mode from the first AVP. That's the mode I'm most pumped for here.

post #166 of 289
Yeah the co-op from the original was blinding. Especially that little bunker at the end of one level out in the open. There'd always be one new guy who'd lock himself in only to find the roof could collapse and much hilarity would ensue as the predaliens swarmed inside.

Saying that though, it was never really that scary. That video looks pretty terrifying and fingers crossed there's plenty of accidental friendly fire and acid blood spray!
post #167 of 289
Oh god, the bunker level! I hope we get a remake of that or something similar.
post #168 of 289
Predator has much more of a melee fighter feel to him than I expected. Saw the tutorial level and some of a marine in Survivor mode. I like what I see so far, but hope it doesn't get repetitive. Noticed a lot of the same death animations and saw the same finishing move three times in about five minutes, so...
post #169 of 289
Kill the messenger!!! Don't be dashing our hopes sir.
post #170 of 289
Making the Predator more of a melee fighter's gotta be their attempt at stopping people just sitting up in the trees using the speargun and shoulder cannon until everyone's dead.

Repetition's something these guys know very well. I'm pretty sure the latter half of the marine campaign had you only killing 3 different kinds of enemies.
post #171 of 289
Well, at least they understand the deep underpinnings of the Aliens franchise, then.
post #172 of 289
They did "drab grey corridor" better than anyone else at the time too.
post #173 of 289
Hey I liked what I saw! The multiplayer's going to be kickass too, that's for sure.

That demo is official confirmed for tomorrow, too, so we'll all be able to try it out.
post #174 of 289
Man is everybody turning against every game coming out this week or what?
Dante's Inferno, Bioshock 2 and AVP are getting cold treatments all of the sudden.
Did Mass Effect 2 affect you so much ?
post #175 of 289
It can't be worse than the PSP Predator game.
post #176 of 289
Dante's Inferno has been getting shit for months, Bioshock 2 just doesn't look very interesting, and this is coming from a developer that last set the world aflutter with ROGUE WARRIOR.

Not exactly a bumper crop.
post #177 of 289
excellent news on the multiplayer demo coming this week.

Anytime
post #178 of 289
Plus Brad hates fun.
post #179 of 289
No really, Rogue Warrior was shit.

I'm really looking forward to this, but I think tempering expectations might be sensible.
post #180 of 289
No way I'm totally hip and with it.

I'm not even saying this is gonna be bad or anything, just I haven't seen anything particularly exciting from it yet. Plus I'm not really that into Aliens or Predators and I think the Colonial Marines are boring.
post #181 of 289
I actually want AvP to be bad now just because Alex likes it. Will have to see what the Demo is like.
post #182 of 289
Hahaha just when we thought you couldn't get cuntier.
post #183 of 289
Blame the aspergers.
post #184 of 289
I dont remember you two having a feud. Is this like the opposite of what's going on with Trevor and Overlord?
post #185 of 289
The same really. Spike just hides his affection with the anger.
post #186 of 289
well, this is all very disappointing indeed. I guess it gives me more time to finish my GOW collection play through........
post #187 of 289
What's disappointing? It sounds like the best Alien Versus Predator game we've had in years.

Demo tomorrow! Cannot wait for this, and hope to see some of you online!
post #190 of 289
PC demo is getting really slagged just about everywhere. 360 seems to be faring better.
post #191 of 289
Goddam!!
post #192 of 289
So they actually managed to overpower the aliens this time around. I must have got insta-killed about 20 times in one round, any time I walked anywhere I'd get the little *grabbed from behind, head chomped* animation. Doesn't help that the pulse rifle is a real piece of shit.

Predators surprisingly easy to take down provided they don't leap at you and use their claws which pretty much stun you long enough for them to finish the job.
post #193 of 289
I was watch a stream of some guy playing the marine. He did some kind of block breaker move on the aliens and kicked their asses. However, I think it was still a no-win kill if an alien got the marine from behind.
post #194 of 289
I don't know why they made the demo deathmatch instead of species deathmatch; can't even hang out on the ceiling and try to learn your alien controls/wait for passing marines without getting insta-killed from behind by the other aliens running around.

20 minutes and I'm pretty much done with AvP online.. I don't think this game will be a purchase after all.

Yeah, same here. I've kind of lost interest with MP for this game which is too bad. Guess I'll be spending my money on some other game.
post #196 of 289
Downloaded this for both the PC and 360. Both times I spent more time searching for a match than actually playing. Basically all this consists of is just stalking someone so you can one hit them from behind. Just hopefully another player isn't doing the same to you.

Its unfortunate that this is the first taste of the game that we get. I would have preferred no demo at all.
post #197 of 289
Well, after 4 games of various results. I'm rather digging this.

Sure it was just straight up Deathmatch (of which I have no desire to play in the full version), but I got a handle of the mechanics for all 3 species.

Teamed up with a fellow marine as we got stalked by a alien (I hope the motion tracker shows your team, for extra paranoia)

The Predator is alright, and the alien is sublime.

Impressions from the event, and multiplayer- http://chud.com/articles/articles/22...TOR/Page1.html
post #199 of 289
The one good thing the horrible Demo did was free up my purchasing schedule for the next few months. Without having to buy that I can take a risk on Just Cause 2 and BioShock 2.
post #200 of 289
Downloading it now just to confirm my suspicions, but I gotta bad feelin' about this...
