This new trailer from Aliens: Colonial Marines shows off the "Survival" multiplayer mode in Gearbox Software's upcoming sci-fi first-person shooter. Here's word on the clip, which looks like it comes from the Xbox 360 edition of the game: "Showing off the thrilling gameplay of Survivor Mode, players must work together to hold their ground against swarms of xenomorphs and fight until the last player is left."
It's probably splitting hairs, but I got mightily annoyed seeing that neon-blob Alien pull itself apart to spray acid on the marines, when it clearly had them surprised from behind.
Non-Canon! Non-Canon! Not in the movie/books/comics/previous games!
That said, not sure why you guys are quite so excited about the mod, it looked ok, but the development team apparently consists of ONE guy. He also admits to lifting textures from other games, and is making an Aliens game. He will be sued well before he finishes it in 2027.
Still, who knows, that mod demo video is getting a decent number of views, he may be able to pick up some more team members and actually make something decent.
