My fingers are crossed very tightly for this game, but i am going to wait till its actually out, the money i just wasted on Aliens:CM and the broken Borderland 2, both pre ordered, have left a sore taste for all pre orders now which i suppose is a good thing in the long run.

Lets hope this game can get the gaming franchise fired up again.
Interesting. Both Borderlands 2 and Aliens: CM were made by Gearbox Software. Aliens did suck, but I thought Borderlands 2 was pretty good. What sort of issues did you have and did you play on PC, 360 or PS3?

I reached a certain part of a mission and that was it, could not complete it due to game killing bug and there was no way to redo it at the time.

Then i could not get the DLC i had payed for, simply would not work.
The PC version was such a pain in the backside at launch that i ditched it and went onto the xbox with it.

I don't get it, why do the Gorn look so much different in this game compared to their TV show counterparts? This game is canon. So how would Nero going back in time have any effect at all on what the Gorn look like?

The game is postulating that there are several Gorn... races? species?... above and beyond the Gorn commander seen in "Arena".

I don't remember the specifics of the Gorn appearance in Enterprise, but that approach seems compatible with canon to me.

This.

We've seen two Gorn in live-action and they both were quite different.

Just think of the Abramverse as an another Mirror Universe. It makes your life easier.

Or just accept that the original appearance of them was in a show that had a 1960s TV budget trying to do funky stuff on a weekly basis and that media made 40 odd years later don't want to be visually bogged down by the limitations of said era. Hard to suspend one's belief I know, but there you go.

Here are some of the upgrades that are worth grabbing in the game.

Looks promising. Kind of like Tomb Raider's upgrade system if it had a baby with an RPG's skill/progression.

Yup (posted a few pages back). But it's still hilarious.

TrekCore has a little preview with a few more videos of gameplay.
