The SEGA Blog now offers a new trailer of the alien hive from Aliens: Colonial Marines, showing how this environment is realized in the game, contrasting their concept art with the finished level. Word is: "The Alien Hive is a dark, imposing place of fear you won’t soon forget. Bring your friends and enter the hive in Aliens: Colonial Marines on February 12, 2013."

These games should go one of two ways (but sadly SEGA always manages to make some disgusting concoction of both that's neither fun nor scary):
1. First Person "Serious Sam" style zerging and shooting, boom boom boom;
or, which is much more what I'd like to see..
2. First Person Survival/Horror, that's so freaking scary you shit your pants every step of the way.
Now, people like Jerykk might jump in and put to debate that games are never scary when you give the player a gun in their hands. Good point! But I argue that if you put a gun in the player's hand, make Alien encounters much more rare, make them move as quick as lightning as they should, and make them one-shot you once they're on you -- in other words make you indeed feel like a SHEEP among WOLVES XENOMORPHS!! -- now that's scary as shit.
