"By the way, i still think xenos must be ABLE to slay humans down by using their speed and strength, and that's something i can't see in the new game, so i still think the original AvP has the best alien-feeling..."
Do you mean that they're supposed to be able to kill armed Marines simply by running head first? Because that's what you were able to do back in AVP1 and AVP2. Certainly nothing of the sort has happened (or even have the potential of happening) in any Alien movies. So stealth based approach for me is still more true to the Aliens.
"I guess you think of them in a different way then i, but i assure you, i don't preffer the Aliens xenomorphs to the Alien xenomorph. I always argue FOR the idea that the xenomorph is a very intelligent being, capable of learning and understanding much better than any human or predator, but the way i see it, they use that knowledge to kill. Everything else is optional."
I never said that if you prefer the Aliens version, it means that you think of them as unintelligent. Far from it, as Aliens does have its moments that shows the Xenomorphs capable of learning (like being able to cut the power, Queen using the elevator etc).
The difference I'm talking about is in behavior. Where Giger's Xenomorph is stealthy and stalks its prey by blending in with the background of the Nostromo, slowly waiting for the right moment (similar to how they play in the new AVP2010); the ones in Aliens are quick, relentless and charge straight in without waiting (similar to how they play in AVP1 and to a certain extent AVP2).
"Oh, don't worry, i love Starcraft, first time i heard this theory i thought of the Zerg too. If you were here during the few RPGs i took part in, you'd have been able to make a slight connection between my character and Kerrigan. Just like she used Zeratul to kill the Overmind so that the Zerg could grow stronger free of his will, so do i think that without a Queen, xenomorphs would pose a much greater threat by following their own minds."
This is going so off topic but screw it. The Zerg is a race of different species, brought together because of the Overmind and his Celebrates. Without them, they don't become stronger, they fall into complete disarray. Remember when one of the celebrates died and his hive can no longer be controlled. They became useless, a liability and had to be wiped out. Kerrigan can kill the Overmind because she herself has the ability to pick up control where the Overmind left off. Under Kerrigan, they were no more free than they were before. In essence, she's no different than an Overmind taking human form.
