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."

Yeah for green splats. And the speed of the fucking Aliens tailored for gamepads. Hooray for gamepads! Thank you Xbox and PS, thank you very fucking much!
It's not just the controller - most console games run at 30fps, which is terrible for fast paced games. There's an excellent video comparing DmC: Devil May Cry on the PS3 @30fps with the PC @60fps and it reminded me exactly why I don't care for console gaming.
And yeah, the original AvP was excellent and the even the multiplayer was well done. The aliens movement was probably the best the series has seen, even though it's so old. I didn't care for AvP2 at all. AvP 2010 had a decent engine but everything else was a disaster (even though I really tried to like it).
