The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

It's supposed to be a "squad-based, single-player action game." And from 3/4 top down screenshots I've found, it makes me think of Starcraft.

Heinlein wrote starship troopers, inspired starcraft, warhammer, alien/aliens.

So saying starcraftesque, not an inaccuracy at all honestly...

So long as they have the original weapons in the game and don’t go too bad with stupid damned exaggerated variations of fantasy super weapons that look utterly rubbish and out of place I’ll be happy. I mean they’d be able to do variations of some of the stuff seen in the weapons racks of the dropship and the SULACO and make a decent game…

Best as I can tell from the trailer ... the SG, helmet & armour, shoulder lamps, even the marine's watch (I think), all look true to the movie props. (+ some new stuff, of course).

Can't wait!

Only thing I saw different on the sg was the motion tracker screen mounted between the motorcycle brackets.

Part of that is probably due to the fact that folks here and elsewhere have made stunningly accurate 3d files that could be imported into the game.

True, and the SG looks a little smaller in front (everything forward of the chamber), which oddly, doesn't upset me at all.

I can see a Comms Marine backpack build in my future at some point in 2023 ... :)
