It looks utter shit from the previews I watched. It's still on alpha though. 

 

I'm hoping it's fun gameplay at least. Also hoping it appears on Gamepass day one.

The IGN preview there highlights a few different elements at play (the upgrading, the different kinds of enemies) that could potentially keep the moment to moment gameplay fresh and emergent, but then unfortunately do say that wasn’t their experience, and that their sessions were a bit repetitive and by the numbers. 
 

Even if the latter proves to be the case I still think this will be fun for 5 minutes. The camera movement is a little jerky for my liking, but I can see myself playing it with friends, a cold beer perspiring on the table beside me, quoting lines from Aliens at each other and having a good time of it. 
 

Also, Working Joe’s are back! Everybody loved them, right? :unsure:

Looking forward to this, I managed to enjoy Colonial Marines even with all its issues so I cant imagine myself not liking this one. My only worry is because its online multiplayer only that the game will be dead after a few months.
 

Also thinking of picking up the predator game as well as thats currently on sale, whats the active user-base like on that game at the moment?

Saw this was £34.99 for preorder on the Series S today so i thought i would see if any reviews are out.

 

https://uk.pcmag.com/pc-games/134866/aliens-fireteam-elite-for-pc - PC build review says it's ok.

 

https://www.ign.com/articles/aliens-fireteam-elite-the-final-preview - IGN liked what they saw. 

 

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2021-07-21-aliens-fireteam-elite-is-actually-very-fun - Another we like what we saw.

 

It's hard to know if I want to set the money down for it as what concerns me is that if it's dies online will single player with bots be enough!

 

I think i'll wait and see if any decent reviews drop before Tuesday before i take the plunge.

There's a 5000 points reward for this. 

 

It's in the summer games showcase. (spend 30 quid on viable games I think?) 

 

I'm tempted to pick it up but it looks clunky as hell. If it has no public matchmaking I'm out as probably shite on my own

I've just ordered the PS5 version from Simplygames.

 

That Pulse Rifle sound is sooooo good and faithful to the original, i just have to try it out for myself.  :wub:

 

Anyone else on PSN, add me for coop shenanigans and girly screams of "get it off me!" when those Prowlers jump outta nowhere.

Yeah, I had to adjust the sound levels to get the guns meatier and turn the volume up. Second campaign is pretty impressive visually, if you are fan of the franchise you’ll love this but I do wish it was first person. Surprised by the level of customisation .
