Anyone else excited for this title? I am big time.
Yeah, AvP and AvP 2 were great, but so far "guardedly hopeful" perfectly sums up my stance on this game.Walter said:I am guardedly hopeful. That AvP for PC game was really awesome, I thought. This one has potential, but ... I just don't know.
You can play as either a Predator, an Alien or a Space Marine.Oburi said:Wow this could be awesome. Is this the one where you get to play as Predator?
The "level of gore" in a game isn't really a factor of quality... It certainly isn't what made the first 2 games good. Anyway, here's a gameplay video that looks pretty nice:Proj2501 said:I was reading an interview with the lead developer and his response to the level of gore in this game. His stance: This game is for adults. End of story. Made me warm and fuzzy inside.
Indeed. That game had an amazing atmosphere. The music cd that came with it really improved the feeling of continuous tension.SaiyajinNoOuji said:First AvP was played on a brand new HP computer that had Windows Millennium edition on it!
I screamed like a girl on the first encounter with the alien...
I went up the elevator on the first level for the space marine and saw a blip on my motion tracker.
I looked around and didn't see anything but then heard the all too known sound of the Alien's growl. I looked and looked but couldn't see shit and the motion tracker kept showing something was coming straight for me. I went to night vision and didn't see anything still. Went back to normal and started to slowly look around in a circle.
Deciding that I had enough of this I started to go forward when all of a sudden the motion scanner went ape shit and I see this thing that looked like it was jumping from wall to wall towards me. I didn't know about the flare button so I just started shooting caps at it in the dark. It went somewhere and the motion sensor stopped. Thinking that it was a good time to make a run for the end of the hall way I ran when all of a sudden I hear the growl again. I spin behind me and there was nothing there, I go back to looking forward and I am greeted by this aliens gaping drooling maw. I scream and I launch my grenade launcher round right into its mouth which indeed killed it but myself as well.
A little? You're being generous. I've played for 30 minutes and it felt like 6 hours, I can't believe how they can fuck up the controls so bad on a 2010 first person shooter game. It' so stiff, it feels like you have no control over the character, the actions just take too long to happen. The marine feels heavy, handling the guns just felt weird and outdated, even the guns' sounds were bad. The Predator plays like a fat man that can jump a little, so damn slow and stiff. You start with the claws but can pick up throwable weapons, which are not so bad, but it's impossible to hit the fast Aliens with a lance for example. The Alien is the only class that I enjoyed playing as, but it just keeps dying all the time. It's very fast and fun to walk on the walls and ceilings, but it just dies so fast if you don't see the enemy. Actually, it's so easy to die in this game, with any class. Whenever you get caught from behind, just give up because you have no chance of survival, even if the guy doesn't use these finishing moves EndlessSky mentioned. The screen gets all distorted and you lose almost half your health each time you get hit/shot.EndlessSky said:However, I think the controls are a little clunky.
