    Doesn't seem very sporting. The Preds should go 'bow hunting', per se, and limit themselves to their claws and spears and such- plasma is pretty overkill.

    Maybe it's a youth safari.

    Arnold killed the first predator using entirely archaic equipment that he made with his own hands after being forced to abandon his big, loud modern guns.

    Calm down, it's not like you'll get cooties from watching it.

    Well, that wasn't much to go on.

    I'm looking forward to it. After how terrible The Predator was at least they are changing things up a tiny bit, setting it in the past instead of the present.

    As for how sporting it is, well, honestly if an alien invasion happened today we'd be much more fucked than if one happened a few hundred years ago.

    Our present day weapons would be just as ineffective as bows and arrows but at least back in the day we were decentralized and knew how to survive in nature, and wouldn't pretty much all die when the power goes out:shrug:

    That could have so rocked once upon a time, but probably not now with Disney in charge.

    After the macho man stuff in the other movies, it'll be nice to get a bit of girl power added to the franchise.
    And I don't mean this as a rip of the franchise, I enjoyed the first two and Predators, but it's still a very manly man, macho franchise.

    I mean seriously, this

    tell you pretty much everything you need to know about the tone of the earlier movies.

    And as for how fair of a fight this will be, it is 300 years ago, so there's at least a decent change the Predator's weapons might not be as advanced as their have been in the other movies.

    To me The Alien movies should always have a female protagonist and Predator a male. Part of the tradition of these franchises

    I am finally starting Alien Isolation... What should I expect? I've never seen such mixed reviews. From game of the year to total garbage.

    I really liked it after the start. The beginning, when the Androids are invincible, is pretty frustrating. But it passes fast enough.

    It’s a good game but it does drag a bit. I like that you can use the mic in the PlayStation so if you make a noise you can attract the alien.

    AvP is a different beast since it features both creatures.

    I always maintained that THAT should have been the original AvP movie. I still have the original Dark Horse comics with that original storyline.

    The Rage War would make a good movie trilogy
