In Other News – 30 September 2016

2 min read


Years back when arcades were still a thing, there was one game that I just couldn’t get enough: Aliens Vs. Predator. It was fan service to the max, a beat-em-up that allowed you to tear entire hordes of Xenomorphs apart as one of four badasses: The Warrior Predator, the Hunter Predator, Dutch Schaefer cosplaying as the Terminator and the katana-wielding Linn.

It was hard as nails in the later levels, but it was sublime stuff. It was Capcom at their licensed best, with a game that paid tons of homage to the source material. I must have spent hundreds of tokens on that damn game over the years, before it was finally removed and sent to Arnie knows where. You can grab it on other platforms of course, but the Arcade version will always be the best.
