Love at First Sight

Survive a Close Encounter with a Facehugger  

When a facehugger (the tiny spider looking things) attempts to.. umm.. hug your face, you will be prompted to press  rapidly until you've freed yourself from its grasp. Once you've done this, feel free to shoot it because the achievement will pop. I unlocked this in mission 2 rather early on recruit.

@2 if I catch harassing other players on online I'll have your Gamerscore reset to 0 and that also applies to anyone else thank you very much. I'm save cause I'm working fro Xbox LIVE HQ when I play Black Ops II or HALO 4 and yes I have caught people using modded controllers and lag switch's along with the USB full of modds so that they can get the best K/D in game.

@4 - You are not an XBL moderator. Stop pretending to be one. Also, 'Aliens' is the second movie. Get it right.

@4 I'm pretty sure someone working for XBL would also have a basic understanding of grammar...

OT: I'm loving all of the movie references on the achievement titles, my second favorite movie next to Predator. Just hope the game is as good as there claiming it is.

@8: Keep on believing buddy, and when you're old enough to work you may well be employed as a moderator for XBL, where you can act like a tyrant exercising what little power you have over people you disagree with online!

Never stop dreaming Sunshine!

@8 - Busted for what? Correcting you? Well, you got me there.

@9- do you know how old I am cause I'm guessing you don't and I could crush your gamerscore by hitting the reset button and the block button on your gamerscore.

@10- you don't think I work for Xbox LIVE Support when i know both the terms and condition and the Code of Conduct. Not to mention I don't have say anything in relation to any games and such. SO please bitch somewhere else or are you to stupid to bitch else where. Also trolling someone that can report you is not allowed so i wouldn't be to happy about what your feeling right now cause XBL ChrOnIc StO is my boss and that is all I'm saying and oh as for busted try the code of conduct on both here and Xbox LIVE

@11 - If you know the terms of conditions and the Code of Conduct, then why are you using profanity againt other users on the forums? I would also like to include, Xbox LIVE Support members are meant to assist members of Xbox LIVE and are not allowed to threaten them by resetting their gamerscore. There is also no such thing as 'Xbox LIVE HQ' so stop acting like a 5 year old know it all, grow up and act like your suppossed age.

@12 - I know right?

I have the Alien move collection here, it clearly says here the films are called:
Alien 3
Alien: Resurrection

@9 lol I salute you sir.

@8 I'm pretty sure the achievement title is a reference to when they're in the med lab and the facehugger pushes against the glass scaring Burke then Hicks says "Looks like love at first sight" ahhhhhhhh... rant over.

Not for nothing but I read the back and forth early in this thread and was wondering "Is having your gamer score reset the end of the world"? I mean I love playin games and this game is something I'm lookin forward too I'm even gettin the 100$ GameStop edition but if my GSwas gone I wouldn't jump out a window it be annoying but I got more important things like my wife,rent,and almost getting hit by NYC cabs everyday not knocking people who do care about their GS more power to ya but shit if ya wanna mess with me than cut my nads off or something...

......just sayin

Lol at #4 comment. Silly person and he have no idea what he is real on about. He possible kid and he cryed because christmas is over before bashed here. I just read it when I enjoyed through achievements list for Aliens as I can not wait for it in few days for it's release. So just read stupid kid. Glad staffs here had banned him or her either.

And some of you that reset Gamerscore to 0 is bullshit. He or she behave like school time. Don't worry my friends, your gamerscore is stuck as I would smach him or her if they reset to some of you then I would press button on to bring back up your Gamerscore and press button to 0 for him or her. Lol

Funny. :D

you can get this during mission 2. When a face hugger is near, let it jump on your face, then it'll prompt you to mash the (X) button very quickly. so mash the (X) button and you'll through the face hugger off of you and the achievement will pop

Everyone, ignore comments #3,4,8,and 11 from user "silverbolt 5", gamertag "whitelion56". If you check his profile on here, it is banned. Just report him to for claiming to work for their company. If he does not work there, Microsoft can take appropriate action.

I find it entertaining that it took over 20 comments before someone had something legitimate to say about this achievement. lol
