Welp... the game finally managed to find a server. It was fun, not that mind blowing as I expected but I's like to see the single player campaings, that's what I look forward to.
Habeeb it...

Agreed.

[EDIT]I just played two matches, I mean, one whole match and left the second ten seconds into it after getting myself humiliated twice in a row without being able to respond or see my attacker, a fellow Marine. I can't believe my 3 GHz processor and 1 GB RAM isn't enough to run it on the lowest graphical settings.

Serious optimization is needed. (somewhat playable at 800x600 with the lowest settings)

And the default controls kind of suck (Q is run? Seriously!?).

Oh, and I hate not being able to change my species outside of the match window. Because, you know, I join a game, and in a mere two seconds it starts. And that's without that whole 'game migration' nonsense.

The engine would take nicely to a Marines vs Tyranids type mod... ;)

 
Re: Aliens vs. Predator Demo now live on Steam
Dang, wish I could play this. It sounds cool.

But, I don't use Steam. And I won't.
Sig nuked! New one coming soon!

 
Re: Aliens vs. Predator Demo now live on Steam
So if its SM as Marines vs. Tyranids as Aliens, who gets to be the Predators?
17:37:02   Quanto: I want to have sexual intercourse with every space elf in existence
17:37:11   SpardaSon21: even the males?
17:37:22   Quanto: its not gay if its an elf

[21:51] <@Droid803> I now realize
[21:51] <@Droid803> this will be SLIIIIIGHTLY awkward
[21:51] <@Droid803> as this rich psychic girl will now be tsundere for a loli.
[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Aside from the taking heads part I'd say Mkoll would be the best Predator analog in 40K.  "Orks have been known to form Waaaghs just

There's also one that combines a FPS with a strategy game, though I've not played it:

Re: Aliens vs. Predator Demo now live on Steam
But who would want to play as a Tyranid?
Don't they die in the tens of thousands to the spehs mahrinz? How do you balance that? Maybe something like L4D?

Re: Aliens vs. Predator Demo now live on Steam
The promo screenshots look really fancy and all, but the gameplay videos I checked out on Youtube make this look pretty much like AvP2 with flashier graphics. I'm not really getting what the point of the finishing moves is supposed to be.

So are there any notable gameplay improvements? I don't think I've ever played AvP2 multiplayer, but all the three single-player campaigns and their distinct playstyles were very enjoyable.

Re: Aliens vs. Predator Demo now live on Steam
Well the playstyles are still there - so if you did enjoy AvP2 then you can at least look forward to more of the same:

Marine: Running about with your heartbeat thumping, shooting any dark corner because sooner or later something will be hiding in one.

Alien: Stalking around on ceilings and in dark places, striking when least expected.

Pred: Similar but with a cloaking device and some more high-tech weaponry.

Graphically it's definitely better, but that's expected. The demo doesn't really give any indication of how the single player will be,  it's multiplayer only and death match at that - so not best suited to give a good idea.

I'm getting the full thing based on game-play alone, I love the atmosphere and world setting.
