Aliens: Colonial Marines
Aliens: Colonial Marines Story Trailer is Toothsome

View author's profile

Another trailer for SEGA and Gearbox Software's Aliens: Colonial Marines has dropped from an air vent during the holiday period, showcasing a little slice of the story, from the corridors of the decrepit, previously nuked Hadley's Hope on LV-426 to another day in the corps on the deck of the Sulaco.

As you'd expect, there's plenty of toothy Xenomorph action too, as well as some Smart Guns and Pulse Rifles blazing. Pretty much everything you could want from an Aliens trailer then.

Check out the latest story trailer below, then get your acid boots strapped on for Aliens: Colonial Marines' launch on February 12th, 2013. You'll find our latest hands-on preview here.

CANNOT WAIT! Please be a lengthy campaign, and please go all out on the survival mode so my friends can play this instead of BLOPS Zombies

Looks good, but not liking the way it's pooping all over the movie. Still a day one buy.

First day 1 of the new year for me, hoping some of the rumors I have read also turn out to be true, a space jockey cameo would be awesome.

Super pumped to play this game. Gearbox has been teasing for WAY to long.

@#4: Jen Taylor is in a ton of games. Pick any game in your library, and it more likely than not has her voicing somebody in some capacity.

As for the game, I'm going to wait and see. Gearbox will probably do a good job with this game; I just want to see how good.

I really want this to be good, but some of the early reviews have been rather lack lustre. I will be renting this first.

I wonder If they will include some nods to PROMETHEUS. Already saw a screenshot of the Engineer in the chair, wonder if they will include more.

I, too, want to get excited for this, but I'm just not sure yet. I'll probably wait until a price drop or until after release to see everyone's thoughts. I've been too let down with games lately to pay such a gamble again.

Prometheus nods shouldn't be too hard given their ship is crashed just past the colony

seeing as how the ship from prometheus is not the ship on LV 426 then we can all stop the relations because they have nothing in common to each other. in the Alien universe their are hundreds of Pilot ships all over the universe. they spread the virus they created. The Predators spread the Alien/Xenomorph species to hunt them for sport. Ridley Scott has stated numerous times he doesn't give two shits for any other films after the one he directed (he did not write it so he owns no claims on the story!) and therefore Prometheus and Alien exist in his universe not Cameron's. Now I guess the writers of this game were told to create their own alternate universe here because they have completely changed the story of all the films, books and comics with what they've done. Now I have preordered the collector's edition and another for my son. I hope the co-op is great.

@ Saft Und Kraft
You seem to be forgetting that it was stated Ridley Scott actually visited the guys at Gearbox with his original designs and storyboards for Alien, if he really didn't care about the sequels and wasn't intending in some way to have a few nods to the original and even Prometheus in this why would he bother?

And I know that the Derelict isn't the same ship as the Juggernaut in Prometheus, but that doesn't mean we can't be enlightened to what the original Space Jockey in Alien was up to.

Anyway, liking the look of his more and more, love the first shot of Bishop as well, wonder whether he'll be more obviously android in this one as opposed to the more sympathetic Bishop in Aliens.

@ 4, nah dude. Jen Taylor isn't doing any voice work in this game.

The graphics look extremely dated, not sure if this will be a buy for me.

Oh, now I get it.

Like Prometheus, this game is only utilizing imagery from Alien/Aliens and the attempting to co-opt the feelings that that connection conjures in the viewer. Whether or not having this imagery makes any sense is beside the point.

At no point is Prometheus or this game interested in making something that logically holds true to the stories told in these beloved films. That would be hard and someone might have to work - which costs money.

What they are most interested in is whipping up that sense of wonder the viewer felt from the original films and carrying him/her to the point of opening their wallet and purchasing the product hoping to capture that feeling again.

Then, on the non-fanboy side of things, is anyone else concerned that the game is due to drop in roughly a month and very little actual gameplay has been shown?

I'm getting it. I convinced my boys to get it. I'm stoked, but underwhelmed by the trailers so far. I grew up watch Aliens a ton because it was one of the two R-rated flicks my mom let me watch... The other was Major League: Jesus. I like him very much, but he no help with curveball.
