In game dialog and results:
"Your mother is ugly" = banned in australia
"Your mother is ugly and smell bad" = banned in germany

Banned in Australia AND Germany = I will surely buy it! :D

BTW, this is the AxP I currently have:

Played this at Eurogamer this year thought it was the roughest looking game there, it was only the MP side of thing but there seemed to be a lack of balance between the classes, the maps were poor too, hoping that by the time it comes out it'll be a lot more polished we used to like to play the old one at LANs

From these images and others I have seen I am not too impressed by the graphics... the humans and Preds tend to look well designed and solid. But the Aliens... well they look atrocious. Far too thin and jagged there is just no depth to them. Far from the lythe killing machines they are in the films.

As for the gore, how can you have a violent, killing game without it? To me it would be like having HD resolution TV and then removing the colour. Would you watch 24, Lost, Heroes or any other recent TV hit series in B/W? I know I wouldn't.

Heroes I wouldn't watch even in iMax!

Get your facts right its unbanned in Australia.

Also no dedi's fro MP = Fail.

Not much of a preview really, this article is all waffle.

I'm really looking forward to this game. I played the MP at the Eurogamer Expo and it was great fun. Still it does have a lot to live up to so I do hope it is as good as it potentially could be.

Saw the first trailer they released and was horrifically underwhelmed. It doesn't look bad per se, but it doesn't look great, and when it comes to AvP, anything less than excellent is terrible in my eyes. the first one was perfect. Especially once they released the patch allowing people to save (although I do take pride in the fact I finished the whole game before I even knew there was a patch).

I really hope it turns out well. Just the nostalgia has me getting more and more excited, but I have a horrible feeling I am just hyping myself up for a horrible disappointment.

Not. Banned. In. Australia.

Oh, look, it's a console port, already being discussed in terms of What's Been Made Easier For The Little Darlings.

Humbug.

It's about time Reballion got off their asses and made another one of these games. AVP1 was excellent but multiplayer was flawed. AVP2 was ok in singleplayer but the Multiplayer kicked ass bugtime! Survivor mode especially.

Can't wait for this game! Finger lickin' good!

You have to realize that this article was written sometime in nov or dec as part of a mass canning of articles so the Bit-Tech people could go get drunk on Xmas egg nog (considering their reviews of nov and dec they need the rest!).
I appreciate the effort they made to give us "new" content everyday, enjoy yourselves Bit-Tech staff and come back in 2010 with reviews worthy of this fine publication!

It is also worth mentioning that Aliens v Predator will be dx10/11. So all you lamers with outdated OS's like XP need to go get a copy of Win7 and a halfway decent 5000 series card, yes you, you git!

Yours in DX11 Plasma,
Star¤Dagger

P.S. Dont forget to try out Shattered Horizon after you get yourself into Gaming shape with a decent OS and GPU!

Haven't been looking forward to a new game since half-life 2 was due.

I really hope this AvP will have a decent multiplayer or co-op modes. That would be make it epic.

Looks ok to me. Just have to wait and see how it turns out.

I just don't get excited about games anymore. This year has been pretty lack luster in terms of game releases. Maybe we'll see some original IP's this coming year. Probably not.

I'm a bit confused as to how this article is a preview.. there's nothing there that hasn't been discussed and seen on other websites in the past 6 months.. :?

I have high hopes for this game, if they don't make something better than AvP1 and AvP2, fans will rip them to shreds.


I still play AvP2 on LAN, bloody brilliant game, specially the MP. I'm a bit saddened that they toned the Alien down, I loved how fast it was in AvP2, was part of the fun how incredbly fast-paced the gameplay was.

Quote: To that end then the trilogy of campaigns in Aliens Versus Predator - a title which is actually distinguished from the original by the pluralised Aliens, by the way :End Quote

Thats strange as my pc copy of the orignal game has the title of "Aliens versus Predator" and i know this because its still right in front of me on my games shelf. Im talking the original boxed copy here not the gold edition.
But one thing i know im hope is that they included the one feature that made the original special, that is the lighting system, i know playing as a Marine meant pure terror when you knew that the Aliens would be going round the map in multiplayer taking out all the spot lights.....
beep.........beep....beep...beep arrrrrr..........

i agree with Star*Dagger...

this game is going to use DX11 for the way its meant to be played! although it uses unreal crappy textures.. but am excited to use my GPU ATI 5870 on its full potential!\

guys get ur selfes a good GPU! this game and other hopefully will use dx11 and win vista /7

The competition for AvP: Natural Selection 2. They are admittedly running tight on their winter 2009 release schedule, in fact I'm sure it's going to be missed, but it does look rather interesting and it was heavily inspired by the original AvP figured it may be worth mentioning.

Teaser trailer (from May this year): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxfjfBeC6tQ&feature=player_embedded

No, I'm not involved with the mod in any way, but as it's something I don't know if others are aware of, it may be something to be aware of to compare/contrast if they had played the original mod back in 2002.
