I think I'd like this better if they weren't going back to the same place and the same storyline. I'll probbaly play it anyway because I'm a fan of the series and it looks fairly soild, but I relaly hope it doesn't suck.

I know, but I think the franchise could benefit from staying within "the canon" and going with truly fresh ideas instead of the Sulaco and LV-426 again. The game itself looks respectable though, so they get the benefit of the doubt for now.

I agree... I played AvP2 for almost 4 years, I really hope this game is good.

Man they've been working on this game for years. It was supposed to come out in like 2010 IIRC. At least it looks good from those videos.

Anyone else check out the IGN livestream? 2 hours of live single and multiplayer gamplay with the developers; I watched a few minutes and it looks pretty solid.

Will be tough. I will be holding it up to the standard set by AVP2, which, like Arsen said, I played for years until you literally couldn't find enough people to fill a 16 person game room.

I'm very optimistic. And I love the idea of a Alien canon storyline. The one thing that really bums me out is the invention of the new aliens. Of course I understand why, but AVP2 was a thrilling campaign with 5 alien species, only one of which wasn't in the movies. When I see a head-butt alien, it just kills the Alien thing for me. Hugger+Human= Alien, Hugger+Dog=Runner, Hugger+Predator=Predalien, but these new species, where the hell do they come from?

Gearbox mentioned something about species perhaps being determined more by hive composition (queen vs. no queen, etc.) than just host species alone. Will be interesting to see how these changes are implemented and, perhaps more importantly, if they're able to do it in a way that isn't ridiculous.
