A New Alien Game: Should We Bother Hoping?

It would be appear this particular dead horse is still holding together just enough to beat on some more. The recent news rumor mongering this week is that not only is there a new Alien game on the way, it’s a) a first person shooter, b) an FPS being done by Creative Assembly, who are best known for real time strategy games, and c) is going to feature Ripley’s daughter, Amanda. (Aliens, Aliens: Colonial Marines, Culture)

To be honest... even if Creative Assembly was making this game as an RTS I feel like I have already played the best "Alien" game and that game wasn't Alien but rather Xcom Enemy Unknown. I am pretty done with the "Alien" license now. Better IP and ideas are out in the wild vs this stale IP.

I'm a Aliens movie fan and i welcome another Aliens game, despite the criticism the Aliens:Colonial Marines game got i still enjoyed the game when i played it....I believe with the more user friendly hardware the PS4 has the next Aliens game should look amazing.

I think a lot of developers who approach the franchise in the mindset of making a game seem to completely misunderstand it. They want to make action games but Aliens doesn't really suit that style. A tense third person survival horror game with a small squad of marines would be much better. Ramp the tension and release in controlled bursts of action. I don't think a single game beyond the first AvP has caught the essence properly. You can't just throw endless swarms of Aliens at us for an entire game.

Lol, i'm HONESTLY playing A:CM now whilst i'm waiting for my dinner to arrive (15' pizza) I've been playing it on/off for a couple of months, it's honestly not the worst game i've played this gen, like Resident Evil 5 or Prototype was

The soundtrack and sound fx are cool, "some" of the scenery is quite cool aswel

It's REALLY easy though, even on super soldier, dunno how far I am from completing it, it's just a quick pick up and play game

I think in the right hands this license could do really well...they should take a different approach and not have it be entirely a first person shooter.

if they make it and it's similar to the first Dead Space it would be dope.
