this was on the front page even though it is set for a october release.

could this be the big secret game Gearbox is working on?

"Developed by Brothers-in-Arms creator, Gearbox Software, Aliens: Colonial Marines is a squad-based first-person shooter which recaptures the tension, horror and combat of the movies that created the sci-fi action horror genre. In the game, players battle Aliens using a variety of awesome weapons including pulse-rifles and flamethrowers, plus brand-new equipment and skills. Aliens: Colonial Marines will retain the atmospheric look and feel of the original films while leveraging next-generation technology to create an entirely new interactive Aliens experience. Claustrophobic environments, a brooding soundtrack, and a multitude of surprises and shocks will take the tension and action to unparalleled levels. Game modes include a single-player campaign plus four-person multiplayer player co-op, plus many more to be revealed in future months."

Personally I am excited about this, I love these movies (atleast the first 2).. and I would love a new experience similar to AVP2 on a next gen system.

This probably isn't Gearboxes big secret game, since it's been known for quite some time now that Gearbox was working on a new Aliens Game.

I will say this tho, I'll probably go and pre order it. Just finished reading the story on it in gameinformer, and it looks very very cool!

I haven't heard anything about a new Alien game. Shit, can't wait for it, though. Hope it'll be good, and hope we'll get another movie with Sigourney Weaver (it's not an Alien movie without her).

The first film is the only one that has that claustrophobic feel though? At any rate, I can't wait for this. The first three Alien films kick my ass in awesome-ness.

It seems to early to make that assumption, I think gamestop just threw something together for a little visual proof..I don't think Gearbox would skip out on the multiplayer.

I doubt this is the secret game Gearbox is working on.

Either way, it looks like it'll be good.

Yeah a standalone Alien game probably won't do that good.

Jesus! That would be amazing! I'm definitely already looking forward to this based on the title/front cover.

Haven't played a good Alien/Predator or Alien Vs. Predator game in a while. Hopefully it'll realize it's being released on a next gen console and include everything it should. :p

Yea that better be the final cover because its bad ass. But I think this is Aliens only I dont see anything about predators.

No, I'm aware of that. I was just saying it's been a while since I've played a good game of either of them.

I've already got the feeling that this could end up being a disappointment. Hard expectations to live up to.

Sorry to tell you but I seriously doubt Ridley Scott , how great he is , will make a new movie based on a video game.

I liked the early alien games on PC. I hope this one tops it.

Haven't seen the movies, but it seems like it'd made a good concept for a game.

There's a huge article in March's Gameinformer about Aliens: Colonial Marines. I'm super stoked about this game, I've loved everything that has to do with Aliens since I saw Alien when I was like 6. I use to have tons of Alien books and comics as a kid, I liked Predator vs Aliens a whole lot when it was just the books and comics. The movies don't do the series justice.
