At first i thought Wow! then more into it like hmm ..gotta wait and see i guess, i'd say at this point the hype meter for this game is around 6.5 \10 -Gearbox must be keeping things close to their chest, the art direction looked good, no douibt there'll be surprises in store.
*haha i got aN Aliens: CM 12th Feb ad. from the forum ads in this thread there before i logged in, got screenie was pretty neat.and again top page hehe

Brilliant!
Have a few older Alien games for the PS2, but this looks as though it be a real kick-a$$ game.
Just love all that gung-ho marine-type enthousiasm.

I have faith in Gearbox, this particular trailer is rather bad though.

The voice over gives me the impression that they're trying to add the goofiness and not to be taken seriously nature of borderlands and have marines with really big guns killing aliens. Not an AvP fan, not at all hyped up by this trailer.

I like em cheesy... Duke Nukem cheesy..

"If it moves, kill it! If it's not moving, kill it again!"

"You don't die, unless I give you a direct order!"

LOL!! But, although I like cheesiness, NOT in a dark and moody game like Aliens etc. No sir.

I would just prefer dark, scary and moody atmosphere among other things. It doesnt suit it. But well, lets not assume for the worse. It might turn up to be good game.

The alien movies that featured the marines were always cheesy tuff guy stuff mixed with moments of tension.
I think if gamers go into this expecting to be scared from the moment you reach the main menu right through till end credits, are going to be disappointed. Aliens never had constant fear, it was a sci-fi thriller after all, bit of action, bit of fright moments and some slow burn tension which is what made them so good as they're so well paced.

Cant wait.

Oh I forgot to add. What were that they fight for? For the title of the "baddest mo********ers in the Galaxy"?? Oh, PLEASE. Ecco the dolphin looks more badass.

You want badass? Look at GOW Soldiers. Now those are look badass and I never played them. Sorry guys, I'm just saying.

Take a look!

Well if you enjoyed it then lucky you, but if i have to skin a xenomorph just to increase my ammo pouch size then Gearbox will be dead to me.

Lol, how many traffic cones you got so far dude. Traffic cones, that is the most disgusting and pointless thing ive ever seen a developer put as a collectible in game item in all my years gaming. Cant blow up a hut but i can find a **** ton of traffic cones on island in the middle of nowhere. the only game in the world where can sell godamn traffic cones to buy ammo.

feckn traffic cones in treasure boxes at the end of a cave, coulda been something usefull but noooo. Wasnt aware fc3 was traffic control simulater. Oh no look out indigenous island citizen, that there is slip hazerd....wait here, i'll just go to my cave a grab a hazard cone.

Well then +1 for FC3 then for following and abiding traffic rules.. It's good to see a game being a good example..

P.S: I get your point. I just collected all the statues and letters. I barely collected any chests. No, way I was even gonna bother with them.

To those that think this looks cheesy, have you guys watched Aliens any time recently? That trailer seems to represent the ultra cheesy caricatures in James Cameron's sequel pretty well, which is what this in turn, is a sequel to. Ridley Scott's Alien was the one that was more atmospheric and spooky.
