Post Analyzing The Trailer/Screenshots Thread.

*Trailer*

*The NV Goggles actually are useful this time around.

*There are Land Mines(like from Telic/EFR).

*Animations for being knocked down and standing back up.

*Was wrong about Stims, a Marine gets 3 if they equip them in the "Extra Slot".

*If all Tech Marines die and nobody has a Hacking Tool, the game will give a "Mission Failed" because you can't proceed around a locked door(this is a good thing, no wasting time running around to find out 5-10 minutes later you screwed yourselves).
PROTIP: Look at it this way, every type of Marine is expendable except for Tech Marines like in Half-Life: Opposing Force; there is even an Achievement for protecting a Tech Marine as a group.

*You can Quick-Reload your Weapons(like in Gears of War).

*There is Melee Combat as a "Backup Weapon"(can be Upgraded as well).



*Screenshots*

*Medic now heals with a TF2 styled Healgun(possibly Infinite Ammo but requires waiting for it to recharge).

*Medic can do a Mass-Heal Bubble for a limited duration.

*Any class can take any "Extra Slot Item"(see picture with Sp. Weapons carrying Tesla Sentry).

*Many Telic+EFR Weapons made it through(Tesla Gun for example).



*Characters*

Top-Bottom: http://cdn.steampowered.com/v/gfx/ap...g?t=1279301460

Medic - Bastille
Tech - Crash(Flynn has 1 eye missing.)
Officer - Jaeger(Has a "punk look" and is younger.)
Sp. Weapons - Wolfe

http://store.steampowered.com/video/630

Officer - Sarge(way older looking, has that Arnold "Toughguy" look.)
Medic - Faith

*****

So correction, we have not seen Flynn & Wildcat(both part of original cast); or Vegas(new AS character) and Lt. Williams(was featured during AS2K4 Campaigns as a NPC Marine).



MORE TO COME... (just getting the thread started)









*EASTER EGGS*

*Big Momma (AKA Gonarch) looking Alien(<3 Valve).

Some of the smaller aliens also bear some similarities with bugs from Rising the Bar

Surprised not more people are contributing.

I wonder if you can take the Helmets off, I'm curious if there is an actual Human Model underneath all the Armor.

Basically I want to see Faith and Wildcat naked. :P

Possibility of third-person camera mode.

From the trailer Alien Swarm Gameplay Video, approximately starting at 0:46, there a little screen on the left side.

edit: Here's a screenshot:http://i.imgur.com/BBumc.jpg

Yeah, I think as soon as adrenaline is pulled out it shows a shoulder cam.

I believe you refer to "Over the shoulder" camera.

Could be, however, the game's intended to be played from a top to bottom perspective, seeing how enemies can go to higher grounds, not being able to see enemies waiting for you atop a high surface can mean death in higher difficulty modes.

Exact same thing happens in Swarm2k4 when you use stims, so that's likely what it is here too.

Updated with a few more tidbits.

From what I gather, we do not see the portrait of Wildcat anywhere, or Vegas(one of the new Marines they were working on when it was still called AS:I).

Vegas was suppose to be a Tech Marine, and Wildcat is a Sp. Weapons Marine.

Remember though, the store page says there are 8 characters, so there are still a few we haven't seen yet.

Besides, it seems kinda silly to cut fan-favorites like them.

0:03 Autogunner only has 1 extra clip of ammo (others have 5). Same as in Swarm2k4.
0:08 Medic deploys an AoE effect. Not healing (all marines at full)
0:18 Fumbled quick-reload
0:23 Spitter type alien
0:30 Normal reload, Vindicator shotgun has a clip of 14 (and 5 grenades?)
0:33 Melee punch, melee kick
0:50 Adrenaline-cam looks where the player is aiming rather than spinning around like in Swarm2k4
1:06 Mission automatically (?) ends after a timer
1:12 Pro-tip

Also, I'm pretty sure the crosshair has an ammo-meter on it, too. You can see it changing.

What did I miss?

e: Also, that tech in the screenie is clearly Peter Parker. And the Special Weaps. is Animal Mother Jayne.
