11 min and 30 seconds of Aliens: Colonial Marines. Don't like the new breed of Alien..but there enough here that I'm stoked about. I already spotted a continuity error though.

Looks like a bad rehash of the human campaign in the newest AvP.

The new Aliens game for the DS just got a fantastic review on Arstechnica:

Yeah, August. That's old news, this is the new hotness so your "but" is completely unwarranted

I can't believe they used the score from "Moon". I hope it's good!

If they could make this as entertaining as AVP2 for the PC was with just the marine campaign I would be happy. Its Gearbox so I have hopes. All these delays are starting to make me wonder though.

From over at the TeamXbox site....

Aliens Colonial Marines Delayed

The game has slipped past its intended April release schedule into the back half of the year, Fall to be more precise. Here is what the developer had to say to Edge Online:


“Aliens: Colonial Marines is a process of creativity and invention and those don't necessarily follow the structure of an assembly line. While setting clear goals, deadlines and predictions is helpful, they are often subjective.

We don't want to sacrifice the creative process just for the sake of following a blue print. We prefer to have the creative discovery shape that blue print because our goal is to make a great game, and we are prioritizing this goal over the previously targeted date.”

I really REALLY hope this is good. I still have the fondest memories of AvP 2 multiplayer on the PC.

And I just ordered a used copy of Aliens: Infestation, so thanks for pointing that one out.

I actually still have the PC version of AVP2 and it was downright good and scarry. It played almost just like the movie Aliens. It was dark, rainy with those flashing red lights and sometimes too quite. The sound efects were right on. All I can say this better be worth the wait. One more setback and delay and I think it's less promising we'll see it. Right now it's like a year behind from the original release date from the now projected one.

AvP 2 will always be one of my favorite games just for the level where you play a chestburster.

Interview with Randy Pitchford of Gearbox talking about the game and lots of new footage. This game if anything will be scarry and full of suspense. It has the look of Aliens: the Movie down....

Looks cool but, I'm a little concerned about limited enemy types and repetitive environments. Seems a lot like Dead Space to me in the alien universe (not a bad thing). I'm curious to see what they show at E3 with it running on the WiiU.

Looks like they've done a pretty good job. That WiiU controller sounds pretty cool for this game too.

The Gearbox Software-developed game was previously given a "fall 2012" launch window, and was planned as a Wii U hardware launch title (the game is also planned for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC), though no hard date was ever given before. In fact, despite the February 12 date announcement, the game's Wii U version still doesn't have a date. "A release date for the announced Wii U version will be revealed at a later time," the press release reads."



I'm actually cool with delays--anything they need to do to make the game better and all that. But the two games I was looking forward to the most. . . Ah, well. There's still Borderlands 2, right?
