Legendary Encounters already had incredibly inconsistent artwork, but now that Firefly is released and even worse and more inconsistent artwork is displayed here, is anyone else worried that the expansion will make more of a mess of this wonderful Alien game as well?

I hope for a good artwork.

But if it's bad I can't do anything but not buying it.

I don't care about artwork, I care about gameplay. So far we know nothing about gameplay so I don't care about this expansion at all.

I'm curious what reasons could be for all the release hold-up... First it had to come out in May, then July, end of August, now it appears like November. Whether they are purely marketing reasons or they still make some tweaks of gameplay or maybe they decided to improve used artwork after the criticism of Firefly...?

We know you can play the queen. Good enough for me.

I actually cancelled my pre-order last night - not because of art concerns but because I'm not seeing much around what's in the box other than 4 new characters and play-as-Queen. I have no interest in playing as the Queen, so with 400 cards, thats a lot of cards I don't expect to ever use.

I feel like Firefly was rushed to be done by Gen Con, and that is why the art was so bad. I can't think of a single other reason that would justify the artwork in that game. Since this one is coming out later, without a definitive time frame to meet, I'm hoping they will take the time needed to keep the same thing from happening. While the art in the original Legendary Encounters was not always amazing, none of it was as bad as the trash that ended up in the Firefly version, so hopefully they'll take whatever time they need to make this one right.

I recall that people said some of the delays were because they were focused upon the Marvel Civil War expansion.

That's nonsensical, since there are different development teams/ designers.

Just because they have different designers doesn't mean there aren't other shared resources that would slow things down.

Art is pretty important for me to immerse myself into a game especially someting like Alien. The first Alien game was fine. A little inconsistent with the design but ok and sometimes great.

Firefly on the other hand was just as bad as it gets. Cant remember a game that looked that horrible. Was a must buy for me but now its a not buy at all.

They really destroyed the game with the atrocious art. Really hope the expansion is more in the line of LE Alien.

I dont get how you can sabotage your own game with a tested gampelay like this.
