But Skaarj? I don't quite see the ressemblance.
Skaarj are more like a mix of a saurian (skin/tail), boar (tusks) and the XMan character Wolverine (claws).
Armclaws, tendril/dreadlocks are similarities, in addition to a somewhat 'advancecd barbarian' style (ie. Tribal painted Skaarj with spaceships, tech. advanced Predator with similar markings under the armor, if I recall.) Plus, the face design of the Skaarj is somewhat similar to what's underneath the mask of the Predator. Finally, the body builds of the Predator and Skaarj are far more alike than that of the Gen Mo'kai and the Predator.
The similarities aren't as obvious in UT2004, and if I started UT2004 as my first Unreal series, I probably never would have made the connection. However, the Skaarj Hybrids in UT were far more similar to Predators than the Gen Mo'kai or the UT2004 Skaarj, in my mind.
heh, thanks the the wallpaper, definitely a keeper. As for the movie, i don't even give a damn about acting or anything just so long as i get to see plenty of Predator vs Alien action (and no not in the sexual sense...that's just wrong), in fact i wouldn't be surprised (or disappointed) if every human in the movie got killed...kinda hoping they do, a happy ending in a movie like this would suck IMO
as for the Predator's resemblance to some of the aliens/monsters/freaks in UT2004, i'd say the predators resemble the skaarj more then the Gen's, mainly cause the skaarj have the extendable claws, and the face is similar in that the tusks are kinda like the mandibles (not sure if that's what you call them) on the predator, also the skaarj aren't reverse jointed like the Gen's are....

aliens are gonna woop the preditors ASS'es!!!! hehe
actually, i could go either way on this one (if i had to choose who i wanted to win)... aliens look cooler.... predators seem a bit tougher (but w/o any weapons who knows?)... i *might* go w/ aliens just because they were created by giger hehe
