The Tyranids are so blatantly modeled after the Alien it isn't funny, as are the Zerg from Starcraft. Offhand I can't think of anything else that well known that is based on the Predator and yet I do know why that is: the alien is made of pure win.
Heh, I came across a scale model of the Alien once, damn thing was nearly 7 feet tall and completely detailed, almost as if it was real and just froze in place for all time. Was one of the coolest things I have ever seen and it was up for sale. Supposedly one of the original alien sculpts from Aliens was used as the cast for it. However the over 10K price tag prevented me from taking that thing home.
one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
