Alien Community Loses One of the Greats
Posted February 27, 2015, 07:34:43 PM by BlackWatch
Some sad new to pass along. A dear friend to the Alien community, the AxP site, and myself personally, Jay West, has died suddenly in Los Angeles. Jay's passion for film, specifically the Alien series, was second to none and inspired many great conversations in the time that I knew him. In fact, Jay wrote many reviews, interviews and articles for Alien Experience over the years and his contributions, as well as his friendship, will not be forgotten. Deepest condolences from myself, and everyone at AxP, to Jay's family, especially his two boys, whom he loved deeply. Godspeed, my friend. You will be missed by many. The world is a lesser place with you gone.

NECA Aliens, Series 2 - October/November 2014
Posted July 18, 2013, 02:27:37 PM by beckmen
NECA will be continuing their Aliens lines with the following figures coming late this year:

-Big Chap (improved articulation and sculpt)
-Sargent Windrex (*)
-Alien Warrior with Blue highlights
-Electronic Alien Egg with spring-loaded Face-hugger
-Screaming Hicks (with helmet) Versus Battle Damaged Alien (exploding head and chest wound)
-Screaming Hudson (with helmet) Versus Battle Damaged Alien  (chest wounds)

The first three figures are Series 2, the Alien Egg and Two-Packs are separate and will probably arrive at different times. No word yet on the MSRPs of the Egg and Two-Packs, but expect to spend 20 bucks a piece on the single figures. 

(*) - Who the fuck is Sargent Windrex? A new marine named after a NECA sculptor's brother, who is battling stomach cancer.

NECA also is planning something for the 35th Anniversary of Alien. An Alien figure and Jones the cat will be coming, though details of what will set the Alien figure apart from the Aliens, Series 2 version is not yet known. Nor is Jones' details.

On a related note: NECA is also continuing their Predator(s) line. Series 11 looks to feature three new Predators; either from Batman: Dead End, or more remakes of the Kenner figures, or something else entirely; also a Toys R Us Exclusive "Final Battle Dutch Versus Jungle Hunter" Two-pack featuring a bloodied, shirtless Dutch and unmasked, battle damaged Predator; and finally a Thermal Vision Dutch figure which I am guessing will be an exclusive for somebody. No details on the plan to release them, though.

On a less-related, but still scifi/action from the 80s so shut up note: More First Blood figures will be coming, and Robocop will finally be able to battle ED-209. This isn't new news, but I don't know if I ever shared it with the group.

Jack Paglen writing Prometheus 2
Posted June 17, 2013, 08:20:54 PM by dude
Things had been moving pretty quietly on the Prometheus sequel's development, aside from rumblings that writers where struggling to crack the story, but that doesn't appear to be the case any more.

Variety reports that Jack Paglen has signed on to script the sequel. Prometheus 2 (Or Paradise as it may come to be known) will be Paglen's second feature film, following next April's sci-fi epic Transcendence which will star Johnny Depp and is produced by Christopher Nolan.

It's also worth noting, according to that article, Ridley Scott has yet to commit to the film as director, but is currently working on it as a producer.

Noomi Rapace Says Prometheus 2 is Being 'Worked On'
Posted February 26, 2013, 11:00:28 PM by dude
Currently doing press for thriller Dead Man Down, Noomi Rapace spoke to the guys at The Playlist about her involvement and the progress they're making.

"They're working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago. I would love to work with him again and I know that he would like to do another one. It's just like we need to find the right story. I hope we will."

"And for me, if we do a second one, there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue."

When asked who 'They' are, Rapace declined to answer.

Thanks to The Playlist.

Win a Copy of Aliens: Colonial Marines!
Posted February 20, 2013, 07:43:00 PM by BlackWatch
Stop your grinnin' and drop your linen! We are teaming up with SEGA to give away two copies of the Xbox 360 version of Aliens: Colonial Marines!

Additionally, we are also giving away two copies of the Eagle Transporter ARMAT M41A Pulse Rifle poster that was released, and sold out, several years ago. I've been holding onto these copies for just such an occasion and will be mailing them out to two other lucky winners.

So, if you want to win a copy of Aliens: Colonial Marines for Xbox 360 (NTSC version only) or a very cool Pulse Rifle poster, simply post "Ooorah!" in the thread below. The contest will run from now until March 6th at 8:00pm ET at which point I will randomly pick four winners from those members who have posted in this thread. Good luck! And many thanks to Clumsyorchid, community manager, over at the SEGA forums for his help with this.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Metacritic Score
Posted February 20, 2013, 07:18:32 PM by BlackWatch
Metacritic has compiled it's score for all three platform versions of Aliens: Colonial Marines. The general vibe around the game is that it is lackluster in a number of categories. Here's how it breaksdown:

Xbox 360 49/100 based on 33 reviews.
PlayStation 3 44/100 based on 16 reviews.
PC 42/100 based on 33 reviews.

Certainly not encouraging. But I suppose, as always, you should judge for yourself. I've had the game since it was released last week but have only logged about half an hour total in both single and multiplayer modes combined. There are some cool nods to the films, but I can see where some of the complaints are coming from. All-in-all, however, it's far too early for me to pass final judgement. In the meantime, if you've played the game, I'd love to hear what you have to think of it. Post your comments below.

GT's Annoyed Gamer Rants on A: CM
Posted February 18, 2013, 08:47:54 AM by BlackWatch
Marcus Beer, better known as Annoyed Gamer of GameTrailers, has posted his latest blog video focusing on the newly released SEGA game Aliens: Colonial Marines, and some issues that have recently come to light in regards to who actually developed the game:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UREH62vNgiw" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UREH62vNgiw</a>

Developer accountability is something gamers have been demanding for years now, perhaps if the cause is championed by the media, it will be something we eventually get.

William H. Macy apparently auditioned for Alien: Ressurection
Posted February 12, 2013, 09:50:04 PM by beckmen
William H. Macy shared a story on Conan February 4th, 2013 about him blowing the audition for "an Alien movie directed by a French guy" (paraphrasing here). Based on the details of the story it can be assumed that the movie was Alien: Resurrection and the role was that of Dr. Gediman.

Not sure if this had ever been discussed prior to his appearance on Conan, but I don't recall it. An interesting alternate reality to imagine.

Stories of aliens and predators are popular among the sci-fi crowd. If you enjoy science fiction movies and publications, you probably also enjoy Halloween. This year there are more Halloween costumes options online than ever before. From Star Wars to Alien predators and everything in between, the selection is amazing.

What is your favourite spacecraft?
