I've got a bad feeling about this plop.

Feature: Aliens versus Editor

Hands-On: Aliens – Colonial Marines

Recently, I had the chance to play Aliens: Colonial Marines and I'm going to try and write more than one thousand five hundred words about the experience without quoting Aliens once. Will I manage to describe two varieties of multiplayer from the perspective of both alien and marine without once using the words of Hudson or Hicks? Will I convey my thoughts about the small…

Gorman-Shooter: Colonial Marines Survivor Mode

Gosh. A trailer just fell out of a vent in my study and upon inspection it appears to contain footage of yet another multiplayer mode for Gearbox's Aliens FPS, Colonial Marines. Along with aliens vs marines deathmatch and a co-operative campaign mode, objective-based team combat has also been promised, and Survivor, along with the already announced Escape mode offers just such a thing. One team…

You Can Pre-Order Aliens: Colonial Marines If You Like

Here's a good idea for a game. There's this giant alien, like, the size of a suburb, and it's eaten all the locals. You are a member of an elite squad of marines, and you must enter its intestines to save them. It's called Alien's Colonial Marines. And that, ladies and gentleman, is the difference an apostrophe can make. Another joke I would like to…

Sulaco-operation: Aliens – Colonial Marines Multiplayer

I have fond memories of Aliens vs Predator 2 multiplayer, in which I most often played the part of a terrified marine, a coward really who should never have signed up, abandoning my team and shooting wildly at shadows whenever anything resembling an alien jittered across the screen. Shown at PAX Prime, Colonial Marines is bolstering its multiplayer offering with a mode which is inspired…

Clench And Watch The Aliens ‘Tension’ Trailer

It's impressive how effective the ping of the motion tracker from Aliens is, even after all these years. It tensed me right up the moment it hit in this trailer, but then it showed that the tracker was actually pinging an Sega logo and it all drained away. I'm not scared of corporate logos. Then a man with a beard appeared and told me what…

Great Scott – Gearbox Talk Aliens: Colonial Marines

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…

Have A Randy Old Time At Rezzed

Excellent news, troops. Reinforcing the ranks of impending PC games show Rezzed - orchestrated of course by Eurogamer and this here website - is lord of the Borders Randy Pitchford. The Gearbox head and former magician whose surname isn't but should be Pitchfork, veteran of Borderlands, Brothers in Arms, Half-Life: Opposing Force and Ukeday Ukemnay Oreverfay, will take to the stage in Brighton on Friday…

Aliens: Colonial Marines Incubating Until 2013

Back in February 2008 when Kieron first wrote that Gearbox were working on an Aliens game, you'd have had to be the sort of maniac who believes Prometheus is a sensible name for a hubris-invoking scientific expedition to propose that the game wouldn't be released until February 2013. Today, any such maniacs can be released from the padded cells that hold them because it turns…

Winter Is Running – Aliens: Colonial Marines

Gametrailers, who insist on putting trailers before their trailers, have some footage from Aliens: Colonial Marines, as seen at PAX 2012. Dubbed 'First Contact', it shows a series of moments in the life of Winter, a marine: he slips on blood, sneaks through a mossy chamber, barely manages to mind the celestial gap and sees a shadowy alien or two. I've got some theories about…

Aliens: Colonial Marines Gets Shooty Footage

Good morning, Internet! I've been off having adventures, but I suppose I'd better try and put together an entertaining Saturday. Let's kick off with the latest Aliens stuff: after that CGI trailer it's good to get at least a few fragments of game footage, which is what you can see below. This latest emission from the developmental innards of the Gearbox creature show a bunch…

Aliens Coming Out In Goddamn Fall, Trailer

I sure hope that's the “RPS Release Radar” (patent pending) pinging, and not the “Approaching Alien Xenomorph Motion Tracker”. Why did we program them to sound the same? That was my mistake. I'll take the blame, but there was a two-for-one sale at “Stock Sounds For Imaginary Devices”. Hmm, I think it's RPSRR and not the AAXTM, as I'm also hearing that Sega's and Gearbox's…

SEGA’s Aliens: Colonial Marines Presentation

This was shown in private at E3 earlier in the year, but the eleven-minute presentation has just turned up on SEGA blog. It shows off a bunch of game footage and is narrated by Randy Pitchford. He claims that the aim of the game is to creating the Aliens movie in videogame form. It's not looking like a bad attempt that, either.Watch it below.

First Aliens: Colonial Marines Trailer

EDIT: Ah, it's from Gamespot. There's nothing official from SEGA, but it looks like this might be the new trailer for Gearbox’s Aliens: Colonial Marines, below. It has come skittering out of the darkness on YouTube, but there's a good chance SEGA will set the flamethrowers on it if this is a leak. Regarding the trailer itself, there’s plenty of frantic shooting and yelling but…

Feature: Another bug hunt?

First Look – Aliens: Colonial Marines

When I was over at Heatwave earlier in the year, checking out Gods & Heroes, a huge bug cropped up during Scrum. The team stopped gabbing. The silence of clever people racking their brains filled the room. From the back came a lone grunt, followed by "nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure." That's how pervasive Aliens is, especially in…

A Pulse (Rifle): Colonial Marines Lives

Could these be the worst screenshots ever? Well, no. PCG still talk about the time Kieron handed in a review that included a shot of some sand, with the caption "The game has a lot of sand", and I once sent a review with a shot of the game's loading screen. Also, Kotaku poster Stephen Totilo has an excuse other than laziness- he took these…
