Obsidian Entertainment has confirmed the ALIENS RPG is officially dead. Based on the above images from the game, I could not be happier!! If you do not understand why I feel that way, you're either new to JimSmash (welcome!) or haven't been paying attention (hmph, Ignorer).
Stop fucking with the designs!
Giger's version is perfect.... (and Stan Winston's).
I blame ALIEN 3. Some douche in Alien3 production introduced to the Alien biology that it takes the form/characteristics of its host. Imagine if a facehugger jumped onto a PLATYPUS. Yeah, thanks.
Time Travel destination #003: 1990 and stop Alien 3 from being made. The "Alien Saga" is then preserved with only 2 movies. "Dream weaver, I believe you can get me through the night!"
