This is what Obsidian's Aliens RPG might have looked like...

That's a shame. An Aliens RPG sounds awesome, especially if it was made by Obsidian.

an aliens rpg does sound good.

if they made it with a new set of characters (not the ones in the film) and referenced events in the films but did something new that would be awesome

Such a shame this was canned. As soon as it was announced it jumped to the top of my most wanted list

Obsidian are awesome, unique underrated developers.

Too bad the RPG got canned, I would've personally preferred buying it over Colonial Marines, just for taking the license and doing something different with it.

Oh well, Gearbox is making Aliens CM, so that will be enough of an Aliens fix, coupled with Ridley Scott's Alien-prequel film Prometheus.

Two words - Alpha Protocol.

An alien RPG might be good but not by Obsidian. They remind me of Treyarch. The best thing they ever did was a sequel with an IP that someone else created - KOTOR. Look at their titles. They are a compendium of Part 2 and sequel to this or that.

And is their anyone that doesn't know the technical status of New Vegas when it was released?

What's your problem with Alpha Protocol?
The game had some problems, but still a good rpg.

I wouldn't say anything about New Vegas technical status when Fallout 3 was just as bad or probably worse. Bethesda is suppose to be a better developer than Obsidian and they released a technical mess.

They could have just made it their own IP...I don't see the need for an ALIENS movie-based RPG...Have some creativity please!

it's better then another lord of the rings rip off

Aliens is such an awesome movie series

Obsidian are really really uncreative, all their games are built from a established franchise except Alpha Protocol, that's why I don't like them that much

EDIT: sorry morganfell, didn't see that
