What's with the sausage-fest? There were three and half female marines in the film! :x

EDIT: Does Ripley count as a marine? I guess not. Make that two and half then.
Now playing - Trine 2 Director's Cut, Dino Crisis 2, Devil May Cry, The Cave

ha, ripley's way badder than the marines!

maybe they decided that it was because there were women on previous missions, is why they failed? :lol:

i'm really excited about this game, being a big aliens mega-fan, i appreciate the effort that's gone into re-creating the actual locations n stuff. i hope the game is as fun to play as it looks.

when's it out again?

So wish i could have watched that video with the sound turned up, looks like a real team game where you have to protect the people unlocking and welding shut doors.

Cannot wait!!

1/4 of the playable marines is female I believe.

Hahaha, I love Flight of the Conchords. :lol:

On topic, this game looks amazing. I actually really enjoyed the latest AvP game, but this looks much better.

I enjoyed the Skirmish mode, or whatever it was called in the latest Avp game as it could be played offline. Looking forward to this (and my Limited Edition loader model and figure!).

:lol: loved the link. I think I remember hearing something about female marines in multiplayer. But anyway, I meant as marine NPCs. Seriously, who doesn't want a Vasquez-style NPC in this game?

Exactly. It'd be awesome if Ripley was in the game or Vazquez as you say, but it would break the storyline as the game is set after the 2nd film (or is that now 3rd film after Prometheus?) so I'm not sure how the dev team would pull that off without making the story seem really false.

Seeing as the Collectors Edition comes with MP skins for Apone, Hicks, Hudson and Drake i don't see why they wouldn't do some Vasquez or Ripley skins if the demand was there.
