So I can't take credit for this, but wanted to share. Some Prometheus spoilers here. I've been watching a ton of Alien theory videos lately. I'm extremely excited for Covenant.

We all know LV426 from Alien. The planet visited in Prometheus is LV223. Check out Leviticus 22:3 and how it coincides with the creation aspect of the engineers:

"Tell them that whoever among your descendants throughout your generations approaches the sacred things that the Israelis had consecrated to the LORD while still remaining unclean is to be eliminated from my presence. I am the LORD. "

LV is a common abbreviation for Leviticus. Pretty interesting that the descendants sought them out and were eliminated.

Noise, your taste in unique & classy gaming continues to amaze me. You're like the Dos XX most interesting man in the world... for gaming.

Any one see Covenant? No spoilers please :) just curious where you rank it in the overall series.

I liked it better than the movies that weren't Alien and Aliens.

Don't lump me in with the haters Noise.

Well I didn't read spoilers so my take was just that you didn't like it. I'll read more after I see it though.

I don't think Popo ever suggested any dislike. strangenova and I weren't too hot on it. It's more Prometheus 2 which isn't totally what I wanted, but on the flipside I would say Prometheus is better than Covenant, even though the main cast of Covenant was more tolerable. I really enjoyed the slower first 30 minutes or so but then it was just kind of downhill from there to me. Ridley Scott basically retcons everything, but he can suck on some big Alien Queen eggs, cause Alien and Aliens is still my main canon.

Did you beat RE7 yet? Alien Isolation is like 2-3x longer. You'd probably love it but it would maybe take you a few years to finish...
