New ALIENS game gets subtitle

ALIENS: Colonial Marines

Not big news, no, but it does confirm what I'd always suspected. Rather than try something new and interesting (playing as the xenomorph like in AvP and AvP2), they're going for the predictable "bug hunt." Oh well. Maybe it'll be good.

Wasn't there a Colonial Marines planned for the PS2/Xbox like 4 years ago that got canned? Looked like a over the shoulder 3rd person shooter.

Aww, by the thread title I thought they were going to reveal the entire game is spoken in Finnish but has English subtitles.

THREAD DOES NOT DELIVER!

A xenomorph once bit my sister.

You are correct sir:

Orignial Aliens: Colonial Marines

Sounds pretty generic.

KIERTEITTÄÄ EI ANTAA!

Fixed.

....oh.

The Gearbox Alien game, not the one I'm actually interested in: the Obsidian one.

&$#@ yeah, man, get the predators out of my aliens!

Yes, I dig AvP games too, but I've wanted a really, REALLY well done and focused Aliens vs Colonial Marines game for a long time, especially one that throws in some good multiplayer, which hopefully will be the case here. Now if only they'd do an Aliens: Colonial Marines movie where the aliens get to earth in the right timeline...

I get warm, fuzzy feelings on the inside when I picture a 4 player co-op mode, where you and 3 of your friends are slowly walking through a dark hallway, with your only light source being the shoulder mounted lamps. Suddenly, your friend who is carrying the motion tracker screams "CONTACT!" and you hear xenomorph hisses as your pulse gun flashes illuminate more than a dozen of them scrambling towards you.........

If that scenario does not melt your butter, I don't know what will.

An Earth Wars MMO... with squad based 64 player battles with AI bots filling in for marines and aliens until dropship "reinforcements" appear when players join the instanced combat.

Someone, start working on this today!

I was hoping that they'd adopted my suggestion, "Barely Released Disappointment in the Aliens Franchise XVI: The FanCrappening".

Their title's OK. I guess.

Looks like Game Informer will have the dirt.

As is evident by reading the article originally posted.

Which button makes a marine do something stupid like take piss and leave the cargo door open or freak out and hit the ammo bag with the flamethrower?

Yes, but now there's a picture.

Tabula Rasa?!

Hey, if they take the sounds of the rifles direct from the Aliens film, that alone would get me immersed in the game. Plus, if they somehow work in Sig. Weaver wearing only panties and a top from the first film in a significant way, I'll gladly plop down my $$!

I'm utterly bewildered that this thread hasn't yet disintegrated into a flurry of Aliens quotes.

GAME OVER, MAN! GAME OVER!

Whew, thanks QS. The world makes sense again.

No worries Podunk! We're in the pipe, five by five!

What the hell are we supposed to use man? Harsh language?

You can count me out.

I like to keep this handy for close encounters.

Maybe we should just count you out of everything.

Did IQ's just drop sharply while I was away?

Favorite line of the whole movie, except game over, "This girl survived months here with those things."

"Why don't we put her in charge!"
