Cannot wait to see it in action... Move over Skyrim because this is the game I want.

I'm awaiting a stage demo or something...

  I don't like the way they are handling the xenomorphs in this. It's too most AVPs and ADI inspiration in here. If they are going to directly follow Aliens then the designs and behaviour should match the ones from the films.

Jim Sterling just posted his thoughts on the demo: http://www.destructoid.com/e3-first-look-at-aliens-colonial-marines-203383.phtml

Must be getting shown behind doors at E3.

Sounds good, love that they'll be introducing new species and that 20th Century Fox will be treating it as an actual sequel to Aliens.

A quote from that link SPOILERS

"The ensuing slaughter is astounding to watch. As you run through what quickly becomes a rendering plant, Marines around you are locked in their own unique struggles. One is trying to fight a Xenomorph hand-to-hand as the creature attempts to pin him down. Another is lifted in the air by one hand before the Xeno eviscerates him. The whole thing feels like a Ghost Train full of setpieces that one can only catch glimpses of.

At the demo's final hurrah, the Marines are in a storage bunker where the objective is to protect a Power Loader. The Loader is burning Xenos away with a flamethrower but the monsters are able to scale the walls and jump on top of it, again with some lovely animations. Your job is to shoot off the Xenomorphs as they attack the Loader. It is incredibly hectic, and you never quite feel that you're getting the upper hand, which is exactly how it should be.

Oh ... and then there's an Alien Queen.

A freakin' FANTASTIC Alien Queen. It moves, hisses, and rips a man in two just how one would expect it to. It looks freakin' brilliant. Or it does before it stomps right over to the player, picks him up, and jams its biting tongue into his face.

That's when I came all over the place.

The demo did a wonderful job of showing a game that pays maximum respect to the Aliens franchise and is set to deliver one of the most authentic experiences you'll ever witness. I am more excited than ever for Colonial Marines and I have high hopes that this'll be the Aliens game we've been gagging for. "

The fact that you can use a Wii U controller as a motion tracker makes me want to buy one...

Good lord  - buying a multiplatform hardcore game on a Nintendo console?? What is the world coming to!

This is looking great! Finally, some concrete news, I remember this being announced 4 or 5 years ago and it was pretty secretive, but now that there's all of this info, i'm getting pretty damn excited!

It is true that every shooter today has ripped off of Aliens, and now it comes full circle that we now get a proper Aliens shooter.

The latest OXM has a feature on colonial marines with a couple of new pictures:

I like that there will be some new breeds of aliens in there, anyone remember the bull alien?

That looks shit, it would not blend into the walls like the ones in Aliens.
Prefer the dog-alien from 3, that was one fast sonovabitch.

DS version anyone?

I think it looks pretty cool myself. Very retro.



Out in September, it's the same concept as Colonial Marines, but a sidecrolling adventure game. Should be fun.

I drew that comparison as well. Probably why I'm looking forward to it!

Retro indeed. Love the art by Blancho. Great look and hopefully just a fun little game that's great to play! Love that it's looking so old school!

I saw a gameplay video over the weekend and it looks very good. The backgrounds are incorporated very well and the sprite animation is top notch.

Very much looking forward to this.
