    Bit of blurp about the up coming Co-op Xenomorph infest that is Aliens: Colonial Marines....it's a Bug Hunt

    Game information

    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.

    Features:

    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.

    A what? Is that Kiwi for something?

    But come on, it's Aliens, it's how I got my name by wearing out the VHS tape from Video Ezy back in the olden days. Loved that movie!

    Well the premiss of the game is set between Aliens and Alien 3, basically it looks like You try and find out what happened to the Marines and Ripley, and I think the starting point is going to be on the USS Sulaco, before going to Hadley's Hope and LV426 (Yes, like Hicks, I'm an Aliens Nerd:D). things like no HUD and that distinctive sound of the motion tracker and how You look at it (This for Me was a bit dissapointment in the AVP game) will make (Hopefully) a true Aliens experience.
    Also You gotta love the fact You can set up the Sentry Gun:D.
    I've been waiting a long time for a good Aliens Game (My mind still has found memories of the Aliens game for the early PC).
    BTW that CE is a leaked version gotten by a French Mag, so no comfirmation yet from Sega yet

    Give me notice if y'all plan a AvP weekend. I have to load it back up on STEAM.

    BTW, the "how many fingers" skit on the vid is GREAT.

    Hmmmm, looks very similar to the last version of Doom all dark corridors, rooms etc with monsters jumping out at you.
    Think I'll give it a miss.
    If it was a movie then that would be a different thing. That I would pay money to see.
