  4. cock off, spammer ~cb

    • You must be lost. You were looking for IGN, no?

    • Eh?? mo level and been around since the dawn of the internet?? what??

  5. Jeebus, is this going to take over Duke Nukem Forever in the delayed stakes?

  6. Shame this is a awhile away although would prefer the quality

  7. Helps explain SEGA’s gamescom no-show. On the plus side it’s now got plenty of clear air between it and Borderlands 2 which suits me fine. (Only got time for one co-op shooter at once.)

  8. “innovative asymmetrical competitive multiplayer experience”

    uh what? o_O

  9. I didn’t realise you could play as the Aliens in the multiplayer. I loved playing as them in AVP, fingers crossed this game has a working matchmaking system!

  10. Booo, was really looking forward to this being released this year, at least it’s got some more polishing time!
