Wait, I paid 5 bucks months ago at GameStop as a so called pre-order. Was it for this or for the game that was gonna come out when Prometheus was gonna come out, I can't remember.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

There are plenty of videos of game play, but I cant find the one I originally saw a few months back. Some of the game play gets intense with what seemed to be endless Xenomorphs pouring out the walls, plus a massive one that's bigger than the queen. I think I'll end up getting it.

I'll probably get this at some point. Now I'm thinking I might wait for it to be out for a little while first to get some solid reviews on it for the co-op.

I watched the difference between the demo and the final release and that explains it. The demo's graphics where way better. Its pretty sad. I was looking forward to this. Its unlike Gearbox to release garbage.... another flop for Sega.

 

Just look

Whether there is a whole lot of truth in whats said in that article is question but it looks like Gearbox outsourced the majority of the game while they focused on their own title. Sad if you ask me, especially considering how long ago A:CM was announced to how long the turn-a-round on BL2 was. I wouldn't be surprised if Sega takes legal action against Gearbox if this all turns out to be true (I had no interest in this game but I thought you'd all find the above article interesting as you all seem to have been interested in the game).

I wouldn't be surprised if Sega still sues Gearbox for this. This game is a huge flop.

That is a huge difference from the Demo to the final product. I remember seeing that demo and that was what looked amazing to me.. the light effects and overall graphics made it feel like you were in a new Aliens movie.. but compared to the final gameplay footage. Wow. Such a let down.

lol. Even if they were able to fix it and make it a good game, the damage is done. It seems to me that Sega pulled what Lucasarts did to Obsidian on KOTOR II. Another game that could have been good, but the Publisher was rushing the developer causing them to take shortcuts.

      So much action.
      I'm glad Will Smith isn't in this movie.. his last couple movies really were't that good and if it was once again a Will Smith / Jaden Smith movie it would have sucked. *looking at you After Earth*

      I still have my Dreamcast games, but not the bass pro fishing. I'll have to use a controller instead of the original fishing rod controller, but I'll still enjoy it. lol. I hope Sonic Adventure 2 DX is added next week. I have both Sonic Adventure games on my Dreamcast, but those games had online properties to them. But these DX versions have all the online content since my Dreamcast won't be making a connection to Sega's servers anymore. I haven't been able to enjoy a good karting game in years since I don't buy Nintendo consoles, maybe Sonic racing will be decent.

      Anybody watching Z Nation? Its no Walking Dead, but this show is starting to make a fan out of me. Its like a Syfy zombie movie turned into a series with better acting and plots. The first 10 minutes of episode 3 got me laughing pretty damn hard after everybody on the road kept getting brutally murdered.
       
      If you haven't watched this yet, I recommend it. Just don't expect any kind of TWD quality.

      In a surprising move, Amazon has purchased Twitch, beating out the looming Google / YouTube acquisition.
      This should be a good move for twitch. Amazon definitely has the hardware to support the site.
