This is the first trailer to really pique my interest. I hope it ends up being good.

I expect this to be really good. This, in my opinion, not DNF, is an actual display of what gearbox can do.

This is also the first trailer that hasn't been complete vapor for the past 2 years.

Been itching for this game for a LONG time. Huge fan of the Aliens franchise, glad this game is set in the universe proper and not AvP or anything like that.

Sweet it's a sequel to the movies, too.

This looks really good!

Hope it's still a 4-player coop game.

Since everyone is gushing over this I took another look. One thing I see really out of place is their use of the alien's acidic blood. The marines completely ignore it, and so does the game environment.

Too early to tell I think. You'd have to assume they're going to do something about it.

Nice trailer. To echo lockwoodx, I hope to hell they don't miss the details.

That scene with the two pouncing on the cargo lifter really stood out to me, because all I could imagine is a hail of bullets followed by ear deafening shreiking, a giant hissing pile of molten matter leaving a crater in the ground, and all the marines being eaten because they had to seek cover due to the fumes.

Gearbox is the kind of company that will cut corners for the sake of fun, so I don't expect them to pay any attention to the detail, and just try to make a scary fun game using a reliable IP with a scarred history ups and downs.

Mostly using resources from the previous developers. DNF is not inductive of Gearbox's ability.

This trailer is looking like they might have nailed it. I think it helps that there is no Predators.

Fail. They didn't make DNF, they just cobbled together the scraps and released it as precondition to owning the IP.
