    Sounds pretty clever to me. I'm looking forward to this game more and more tbh.

    It might be quite nice for the human campaign too, when you're critically wounded.

    Man that's a cool feature! You can imagine having no way out as a human being swarmed with aliens so you just pop one in your head :D hehe

    Sounds damn cool, if you ask me. (The game in general, not the suicide bit specifically).

    Slightly off topic, did anyone play a HL1 mod, Natural Selection?

    Although the topic is a little gory it is true to the Alien films where suicide/volenatry death was used by several characters when there was no chance of escape. To me that just makes it more realistic and challenging (plus this game is going to be an 18 cert anyway - there are far worse things than suicide in 18 cert films for example).

    I must admit that the more i hear about the avp game the more i think that rebellion is doing a very good job making sure the aliens and predators are as terrifying to civilians as they were in their respective films.

    You can't have an Alien or Predator move without lots of gore so you can't for a game either IMO.

    Yet again it's Sega who hapilly push the boundries of gore and violence. They definitely seem to be repositioning themselves as a very adult publisher, somewhat ironic given their iconic game character's status.

    Well I was going to be buying it anyway but this just added another reason to my purchase justification list :) The fact that they've put this level of detail in makes it a win in my book.

    The only question that remains is will we see a repeat of the Gorman/Vasquez grenade scene?

    Which is why germans either buy the austrian version (which is usually in german but uncut) or buy the english version directly from amazon.uk.co, which is a lot cheaper anyway...

    I know what you mean - it's one of those features in a game that'd just be a "Whoah, did that civvy just smother himself in his own cheesecake?" moment. :D

    One thing, there is never too much gore, well so long as it isn't there just to distract from how bad the rest of the game is, as has occured in the past.

    I agree, you can never have too much gore. I think there has been a distinct lack of the stuff in games in recent years.

    Mind you, im the sort of person who, using the HL2 Hammer Editor, would make a room full of harmless Combine police and then staple them to the ceiling with the crossbow when I run it.
