Looking foward to this, always a sucker for alien games.

Looks good and obviously a bit of artistic licensing going of here, as Hadleys Hope was destroyed in a nuclear explosion at the end of Aliens!!!!

I love the Alien games. On this one, forgive my intellect if I missed it, where does it fall in the sequence of things? The site was "nuked from orbit" at the end of Aliens. I guessed this might be before Ridleys team arrived, but Bishop is in it (although he could be one of those evil androids (knew what Ridley was walking into)), I didn't get that feel from him.

the game is set 17 weeks after the Aliens film, it says so on the original trailer http://youtu.be/vAHXsCtTFVw


If you look closely at the trailer, you will see Bishop cut in half on the loading bar floor, but at the end of Aliens Ripley puts Bishop inside the ship in a hybernation pod/bed thing, where she also puts Newt into one & then herself, this ship is then found on Fiorina 'Fury' 161

he Colonial Marine spaceship Sulaco experiences an onboard fire and launches an escape pod containing Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) along with Newt, Hicks, and the damaged android Bishop. All four are in cryonic stasis. During the launch, the ship's medical scans of the crew's cryotubes show an Alien facehugger attached to one of the crewmembers. The pod then crashes on Fiorina 'Fury' 161, a foundry facility and penal colony

Maybe the blast we saw in Aliens did not hit Hadley's Hope, do not forget the Alien was wanted by Weyland-Yutani & nothing was going to get in their way, there was no proof the nuke hit Hadley's Hope, maybe all the weapons had a fail-safe in place, the thing is if the game had NOT been set (part of it) at Hadley's Hope fans would of moaned about a new colony that has somehow just been conveniently found over some ridge a few miles away that has never been heard about before, i think Gearbox have used a bit of artistic license that's all.

Maybe in this game all will be explained, maybe there is a part of the game where you interact with the computer & it says that Hadley's Hope was going to be nuked but (________________) happened thus explaining why it is still there to be explored.

Im sure sigourney weaver's character is called ripley, ridley is the alien from metroid and metroid only exists because of alien. kinda of kool that you called her ridley.

Im sure this game takes place after the period of time the marines were classed as missing. Is it not also true though that Hadleys Hope was not nuked from orbit, it was blasted to sh!t by the atmosphere processor going super critical and blowing up, this was caused by the damage the marines did during their initial search for the colonists and/or the damage caused by the dropship smashing into it. Nuking from orbit was discussed between Ripley and Hicks and that's when Burke showed his true company colours!!!!
Now an artistic way around it might be to suggest that the blast which was equal to 42 kilotons(from memory here)could have been fatal to life forms but structurally the complex could have survived with minor damage, but then again it's guess work, like everyone else I'm gonna have to wait until the games out!!! :mrgreen:

That's right but if the atmosphere processor blew up how can the marines in this game breath unaided whilst blasting xenomorph ass.

Very true, good point, might be due to the atmosphere taking time to revert back to unbreathable!!?? 8)
