This is how you communicate with a fellow intelligence: you hurt it, you keep on hurting it, until you can distinguish the posts from the screams.

It’s actually Beksinski vs. Giger, AVP style.

I really didn't like scorn. They were just aping a couple very great art styles but there was almost no world building and the levels didn't really make any sense. They just had one idea, the art, and beyond that put the most minimal effort into weaving any sort of game or story into it. I was hoping for something deep and mysterious, a lore hole to dive into and figure things out from environmental storytelling alone. But instead they just kinda went with what ever they thougth looked cool or gross or creepy and didn't put any thought in beyond that. There's nothing to discover.

I liked the world and story a lot and enjoyed thinking about everything it showed me. By the end of the game I felt like I had a sense for what this civilization had been and how it went wrong.

If you've never played the first Rebellion AVP, aka AVP Gold 2000 on Steam, this video ought to do you:

Same, it had some Giger here and there but felt about 80% Beksinski.

“During the excavation and research of the Derelict ship, we were going to find out it was made out of human DNA, created by Xenomorphs. The Xenomorphs were going to use their saliva and bodily fluids to take humans and rewrite their DNA into building a spacecraft, like the crashed ship we saw in Alien. So we come to find out that that ship was also made out of human DNA. It was described to me as District 9 with Xenomorphs, but emphasized not in a good way.”

That sounds cool and not 'fanservicey' at all. Starting to wonder if fans can be trusted to talk accurately about Blomkamp at all lol

In a way yeah, but at least acknowledge you’re opening the door to a future scene in some spin off film where the queen is flying the ship and how loving dumb that’s gonna be.

I'm going to make an Alien movie where the face huggers clamp on to people's butts and the larva explode out their balls, I hope Giger retroactively acknowledges the mistake he made

I'd argue the ship should fly the ship but yeah it'd end up as the Queen thing

Why should I? What a different filmmaker maybe does afterwards in a sequel has no bearing on the preceding film, and the first filmmaker has no responsibility for what comes later if they're not involved, how could they?

It wasn’t intended as a criticism of your opinion on the alien ship idea. More of a commentary about how a good number of fans respond to just about anything that makes the Alien more scrutable. Cameron took the eldritch space horror and turned it into a bug; now they’re building spaceships to travel the galaxy? What does that look like?

The joke was only the absurd notion that, taken to its logical conclusion, we could end up with a future movie where the queen is flying the ship in aviators and the subtitles tell us that, telepathically, she’s saying “In the pipe, five by five.”

"'Radioactive Flesh.' It's the latest - and the last!"
As silly as some of it is, it would be cool if the movies went back to Giger's biomechanical style.
