If you own Dow 2 and or Chaos Rising there is a nice mod under developing.. It’s about the Space hulk, Terminators versus Tyranids in huge floating abandoned starships, i wonder why thq relic didn t make this official easnted of proposing the last stand..
Well.. it seems that after (a lot) of bad movies, they are doing a (seem decent) movie in the Aliens vs Predator universe.. The last good ones were Aliens 2 and Predator, to be honest half the movie of predator imo was made by Arnold Schwarzenegger.. For me the stars are the space-colonial-marines(Aliens) and-or Special Ops(Predator).. not viceversa.
This movie is a remake or heavy inspired by the first Predator movie (no there will be no Arnold), with a twist.. there is a jungle.. but the poor humans this time are on an alien planet..
Last Note: i bought Aliens vs Predator (the new one) videogame.. and for me it was like wasting money..
The game is good, but multiplayer is empty, and bad made, plus i thought they did a 4 marines story co-operative a-la left for dead.. eansted just standard multiplayer.
Hudson: They’re coming outta the walls. They’re coming outta the goddamn walls. Let’s book!
The multiplayer demo will allow gamers the chance to play as all three species – the Colonial Marine, the Predator and the Alien – and pitch their skills against each other in Deathmatch mode on Refinery, one of the game’s multiplayer maps.
