A new trailer from Aliens: Colonial Marines shows off some "kick ass" footage from Gearbox Software's upcoming first-person shooter. Word is: "In anticipation of the upcoming release of Aliens: Colonial Marines, SEGA and Gearbox Software are excited to debut the new Kick Ass trailer. Revealing exhilarating gameplay, stunning visuals and pulse-pounding action, this new glimpse into the Aliens universe shows US Colonial Marines doing what they do best – kicking some Xenomorph ass."

I've begun to become kinda sick of the whole Alien setting. To be honest, it has been "on its honour" for quite some time now. Maybe it's time to just let go of nostalgia and admit the time of blind praise for it has long.. long been flown.
Yeah well, Aliens as a movie franchise has been dead and buried to me since Alien3. Though I actually liked Fincher's movie and dont get all the criticism about it, its the last one that I consider canon. WIth that said there is no reason why they cant still make a good game in the setting, it might not be original but it sure can be good. Im not saying Colonial Marines will be good, that would be a longshot but hope always dies last anyway.
If the PC port of this game turns out to be a direct port, with no enhancement to the Alien's movement speed for example I doubt I will be getting it. Apart from the BL franchise Gearbox has yet to release a quality title, or even an average title. The last AvP was a piece of shit of the worst variety.
