First off before this seems a tad rant-y let me just say that I am impressed so far with the quality of the Alien Rpg. The book is a treat on the eyes, the rules are stylish and compliment the setting incredibly well. I find myself making this post because of the 40th Anniversary edition book.
I have pre-ordered and gone for the anniversary edition, because honestly this is a franchise I adore, and this game so far impresses me to the point where I want to splash out. But honestly, the 40th anniversary cover edition just seems so underwhelming. The art by Martin Grip is amazing and looks so good on the standard version of the game. Now I know it's on par for normal anniversary editions that they have a simple yet stylish front cover, all the WoD re-releases were the same, as were the 5th edition specials for D&D, but the single face-hugger emblem on the front, to me, is incredibly underwhelming. I hope that this is just a stand in for something more elaborate, something that will make this book worth been the iconic 40th anniversary landmark.
How do others feel? Am I alone and does everybody else adore the look of the commemorative book? Am I the only one that would probably like to see a stylized xenomorph over a face hugger?
