Quoted from PoMC:
Wondering how many people are canceling Alien to buy Ghostbusters? Both are great themes, but GB is here and has blown away all expectations and is flat out gorgeous to look at.
Or how many people are canceling TH pre-orders? Or TBL pre-orders?
For some (that can't afford to simply buy every new release - Im jealously looking at You Banker), new titles will always cause folks to reconsider and cancel (or sell existing machines).
That aside, I just don't get all the comparisons between GB and Alien artwork. The two are thematically worlds apart (literally).
GB is a whimsical, colorful theme. Whimsical, colorful art is the perfect match.
Alien is dark. If they tried to replicate the GB style is would look like ass and just not fit (see Predator for an example).
Im looking forward to PLAYING both (before deciding anything).
