Aliens: Colonial Marines

Post by DeadSockPuppet on Mon Aug 08, 2011 12:56 pm

Not sure what everyone else is thinking about this game, but from what I've seen it seems pretty sweet. I've read some previews from the post E3 issues of EGM and GamePro and both seem to really be looking forward to it. Both seem to think that it has the real potential to actually put the player in the movie environment. If that's the case, I can't wait to get 4 of 5 of us together and go pwning Xenomorphs with some sweet weaps.

From what I hear, the Alien fanboys at both the mags seem to think it's gonna be a perfect fit between Alien 3 and Resurrection and that there will be a multiplayer campaign with squads of 4 or 5 players... I can't wait if that's the case.

I need to look closer at it, but I do love the Aliens franchise.

This is finally coming out and I'm not sure if anyone was possibly still interested in it. Release date is 2/12/13 and it's made by Gearbox and sounds like it will play similar to Borderlands, just in the Aliens universe:

You and your friends against the deadliest killers in the galaxy. Another glorious day in the corps. Buckle up, soldier! Welcome to Aliens: Colonial Marines. Created by Gearbox, the critically acclaimed and fan-favourite developers of Borderlands and Brothers In Arms, this first-person shooter is steeped in the eerie, claustrophobic and terrifying atmosphere that made the Aliens films successful worldwide. You and your friends will become the most badass military outfit in the galaxy - the US Colonial Marines. It's down to you to not just survive but wipe out the Xeno infestation.

*Enlist in the Marine Corps
Bringing you a true sequel to James Cameron's classic Aliens, get tooled up with classic Marine weapons including pulse rifles, motion trackers and flamethrowers.

*The most authentic Aliens experience ever
Using authentic environments inspired by the film series including Hadley's Hope, the Sulaco and LV-426, you will be immersed in an eerie, atmospheric world where any moment could bring your death.

*Drop-in / Drop-out co-operative gameplay
The masters of co-op bring their expertise to the Aliens universe. Xenos getting too tough? Call up your buddies so they can drop in with extra firepower. The whole campaign can be played with a squad of up to four players, dropping in and out as necessary through self-contained missions within an over-arching narrative.

*Loadouts and upgrades
Create your perfect killing machine. An extensive upgrade system allows players to customise their characters to play the way they want. Earn experience to get perks, new weapons and new looks for your squad.

I was just kidding before, it does sound cool...but for some reason I'm thinking there are too many games coming out around the same time I'm interested in. I maybe mistaken and confused with my release dates, but I may have to pass on this one.

I know how that goes Klown. I thought this game would be good before I played Borderlands 2 and now that I have an idea how Gearbox works and what the gameplay and MP/co-op are like I can only imagine how much more potential this game has than when I originally read about it.

I don't know when I'll get to play any co-op/MP but it still seems like a good game to try out.

Was going to pick it up but unfortunately I got into Planetside 2 and 90% of my gaming time will be in that game for the next 4-6 months Sad.

I'm leaning against it, but will give it a look a week or two after it launches to gauge everyone's responses and long term interest.

The thing that's making me more interested in this is that GTA has been moved to September and that was really the only other game I might get this spring/summer.

I thought this was a cool vid-



I didn't get Dead Space 3 from Gamefly last week, so maybe I'll get Aliens this week. I'm going to buy either, but want to play them both. I am getting Crysis next week though.

Am I doing something wrong because the video is just a black box for me?

Well, this is getting terrible reviews across the board. Looks like a smart move staying out of this one. Anyone actually pick this up? How is it?

It's definitely getting crushed over on metacritic.com

I'll be getting it from gamefly but probably won't play it much until I get through Deep Space 3 (75% through now). Maybe later this week or over the weekend I'll get some playtime with it. This is exactly why I love gamefly. If it sucks balls I'll just send it back.
