Here's a new video (NSFW) showing off multiplayer tactics in Aliens: Colonial Marines, the first-person shooter in development at Gearbox Software (taken from the Xbox 360 edition). Word is: "Showing a select number of special abilities on both the Xenomorph and the Marine side, the trailer gives you a glimpse at the various tactical choices that players need to make when playing the game’s competitive, asymmetrical multiplayer."

Supporting a game you know is extremely bad ergo a bane for future games if the publisher gets allot of money out of it anyway, is almost unethical. But hey! The game has "Alien" in it, so who gives a soddin' fuck.. yea?
Pretty much. Hey, I was 12 when they shot Aliens, and I love every fucking minute of it. If this franchise is to die, I will go down with the ship. Who hasn't watched that movie and not wanted to be a marine shooting bugs in that colony?
In any case, calling this game "extremely bad" is a bit of a reach. Certainly nobody in here could know that for sure, and I don't think anyone ever deliberately pays for a game they know they won't enjoy. That's crazy talk.
End of the day, I imagine most of us have franchises we're more loyal to than others. I pushed myself into Star Trek Online for much the same reason. Unethical? Hehe... how will I ever live with myself?
