How about we get a demo before release for AVP? That is all I give a crap about right now regarding that game.

Works for me

I'm hoping this game will be worth the kind of play time that L4D has given.

I like how you act surprised people like it when it was a massive hit.

Anyway, this is good news in a lot of ways, I like Steamworks for multiplayer and DLC support. I kind of dislike the idea of Steam DRM now, but I guess I can live with it.

It's a massive hit everywhere except AU. Where poor Valve had to butcher it so much. CORPSES DISAPPEAR BEFORE THEY HIT THE GROUND FOR CRYING OUT LOUD :: **** you Rudd. **** you.

I'm trying so hard to not over hype AVP to myself. I really hate let downs, but I love the first 2 and love the movies...*Please let it be good!*

I am going to be real careful about Napoleon...bought ETW with so much anticipation and they never fully fixed the bugs and now I dont think they ever will...got enough suckers buying the game to worry abt losing money on that title!!!!

You are talking about the Predator movies and the Alien movies and not the actual AVP movies, right? RIGHT?!

Aliens = best movie of all time.
Predator = awesome too.
AvP = ok
The rest = meh

Except for the first Alien. Excellent horror flick for its time.
