    This GZDoom mod totally converts Doom, Doom II, and Final Doom into a full-fledged Aliens game. You must face Weyland-Yutani androids, predators, and xenomorphs in a celestial battle for survival.

    Modder Makes Aliens: Colonial Marines Actually Fun to Play

    For those who are unaware, the tale of Aliens: Colonial Marines is one of loss, woe, and hot messes. After over a decade in development, the rocky process resulted in what can only be described as a trainwreck. Needless to say, Aliens: Colonial Marines was not the game the developers intended to make at the start, much less does it do any justice to its source material. Thanks to the PC modding community, though, it just might finally be that game worthy of bearing any likeness to the science-fiction horror film franchise.

    TemplarGFX is a modder on ModDB, that has completed a total overhaul of nearly every facet of Aliens: Colonial Marines, from the cosmetic changes to the inner workings of the game’s core mechanics. Specifically, the artificial intelligence has received the biggest upgrade to really change the way enemy Xenomorphs behave, allowing for an actual intense challenge when playing through the game.



    Naturally, this also means that the game will become much more difficult, but Xenomorphs shouldn’t be easy to kill anyway. The game’s cogs have altogether been transformed to provide a more complex experience with enemies more easily adapting to various situations and quickly adjusting their tactics. Your allies have also had their health greatly reduced to increase the tension, and their own artificial intelligence has been reworked to more accurately be the allies you need them to be.

    Overall, substantial balancing has been across the board, from enemy and ally movement and abilities to the firearm mechanics turning Aliens: Colonial Marines from the game equivalent of Mean Girls 2 to possibly making it more of a Mean Girls 1, satisfying and memorable.

    I personally don't get why someone hasn't made even a modern RIPOFF Aliens FPS worth a fuck.

    All it is, is basically Left 4 Dead in space with Xenomorphs. Make it darker and scarrier, slow the player down 25% and up the amount of ammunition you carry by 250%. Add just 5% more effort and detail.

    8.5 / 10 Most played game on steam.

    It's idiotic to me that someone hasn't done that.

    I don't think that's illegal but we'll find out soon enough.

    Along with Todd, my problem with Randy is not so much who they are, but the fact that they have lost passion in what they do so they have to make up this whole ego about being a good salesman to justify their problems.

    How would any of you feel about a Aliens Survival Horror game?

    No. That's hide N' seek. I'm talking something like Resident Evil.

    I would assume it is a decent game but it is not exactly what you call a traditional Alien shooter with hordes of Xenomorphs.

    Think about it like that, Alien Isolation is closer to Alien (there is even a DLC which is playing on the Nostromo) and while that is good fun people would also want a game that's trying to be like Aliens now.

    It's pretty shocking that Sega hasn't tried another shot at it. Maybe they're still burned by Randy Hackford diverting funds into BL2 during development.

    To be fair when you look at Alien Isolation they are not very keen on a sequel either. It seems for some reason it was barely profitable despite all the good reviews it got and the positive opinions by most players.

    I guess the issue here is that it's not a brand like Star Wars which prints money but it is also to expensive to work with for a smaller studio to make any profits.
