Great Scott - Gearbox Talk Aliens: Colonial Marines

It'd be good if the game was just marines getting killed and eaten all the time.

I have to admit, I do default to somewhat ignoring Aliens-based games these days. So many ploppy ones in a row hasn’t done the license any favours. But of course Aliens: Colonial Marines is Gearbox, and if we just rather quietly forget about Duke, they make splendid action games. I should probably catch up a little. A good way to do that is via their first edition of a rather overblown developer diary, that along with high-def shots of developers adjusting their glasses as a computer readout from 1989 scans them, shows some in-game footage. Also, they were going to make a Bladerunner game?! I WANT THAT ONE!

There’s lots of emphasis on how this is a direct sequel to the Aliens film, rather than a remake. And they also seem incredibly keen to make sure you’ve noticed that they all draw on their monitors with laserpens.

It’s perhaps a little unfortunate that they’re describing how their direction and design matches James Cameron’s, as the camera awkwardly rotates above a room filled with crates.

It’s currently set for release on the 12th Feb, next year.
