Gone Gold - Aliens: Colonial Marines

The Gearbox Software Community Website has the news that Aliens: Colonial Marines is gold for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, saying the first-person shooter will launch for all three platforms on February 12th. Here's the announcement:

Exciting news -- Aliens: Colonial Marines has gone gold on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360!

When we first announced the release date for Aliens: Colonial Marines back in May 2012, Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford noted that the development had progressed to the point where we could see the end and be very confident in both our vision for the game as well as our launch date.

Today, we’re proud to announce that we hit every one of those targets, with the game's gold status indicating that all parties have examined the release candidate and signed off on the code as final and suitable for manufacturing, after which the game will be shipped to retail and propped to digital networks in time for launch on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 come February 12, 2013!

Now's the time to make sure you've got your pre-order locked in as participating retailers are offering in-game bonus content -- check with your local retailers and visit this page for more details.

Stay frosty, the next chapter in the Aliens story is almost here. Will you be able to fight the fear?

Reason for ridiculously slow aliens that need an entire clip to die = console (controllers). Needn't say more.

Happy that this is only a Marine campaign btw. The 3 campaigns in the AVP games made sure none of the stories were engaging, and you felt like all you could do was run and gun. Granted, the Predator was more interesting. Other than that, there was no reason not to just run to the end of the level asap, feeling miserable, without purpose and uninspired to explore.

Hilarious thing in A:CM is how the marine lifts up his weapon every time he's performing a special action like talking through his mic. Like he somehow knows there won't be any danger around the corner. Ironically, that's exactly the guarantee the player gets.
This game won't be scary.

And I trembled.
