Aliens: Colonial Marines and AvP 2010 No Longer Sold on Steam

The Aliens vs. Predator Steam forum offers a confused post which notes the game associated with the forum is no longer being sold on Steam, though it remains playable for those who have already purchased it. There is an extensive discussion of this and the concerns it raises on reddit. There's also a related post on Polygon noting that a Aliens: Colonial Marines is similarly no longer for sale on Steam, with this forum post raising questions about what's going on which have so far gone unanswered. They also note that for those still interested, Steam codes for Aliens: Colonial Marines can still be found on Amazon along with the Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass.

Let me get right on that ACM Season pass before it's too late!

But really, Sega and GB have pretty much dumped all ties to ACM that James Cameron couldn't even find their support at the bottom of the Challenger Deep so I wouldn't expect a lengthy explanation as to why this happened, if any at all.

Which is a shame because AvP remake looks like a triple A title when compared to ACM and generally was an 'okay', albeit unmemorable game when compared to its predecessors.

Is this due to a licensing issue, as the Deadpool game did last year (after being on sale for maybe 2 months)?

Same new year licensing bullshit probably. Not those games are any good.

I never understood all the hate for AvP 2010. I had a lot of fun with the campaigns and it's still is one of the prettiest games out there.

Hopefully Sega realizes why Isolation was so well received, and continues that route...

I remember reviewing it when it came out, having been somewhat familiar with the original but not really a huge fan of the franchise or anything. Solid game, not amazing, and just a bit short. But that wasn't enough for a lot of people who held some really high expectations, and so then when the multiplayer never took off on top of that, it fell to the wayside pretty quickly.

Every year something likes this happens with some game. Wouldn't surprise me to see both games back on Steam fairly shortly.

I a have feeling it was a case of the game not selling at all on the service. Everywhere I have seen ACM still sold its under $5 in some bargin bin. Also It might have to do with controlling the reputation of the Alien brand. A new Alien game came out not to long ago and some people might be put off my the user reviews of the other games.

Not to mention that even w/o selling it, steam still has to host the install files for people that already own the game.

It was mainly a let down because of the fake e3 gameplay video, if that had never been shown then it just would have been another blip on the radar of poorly made games based on movies.

I can think of many games that are more deserving of being drug through the mud though.

Easy, people wanted AvP2, which was great. They got AvP...something...where the aliens felt like they were running through cheese. Unlike the nimble, quick, and overpowering bugs they were in the first two games.

They lost me as soon as the predator only had certain points he could jump to/from.

It's interesting how both of these games are terrible yet one was developed in 1-2 years (AvP3) while the other was developed over the course of 8 years. Rebellion was forced by Sega to retool the entire game in 9 months while Gearbox had free reign to do whatever they wanted and ended up spending more time and money on Borderlands instead of what they were hired to do, ACM. Two garbage games with very different histories as to why they suck so much.

A lot of consternation for a very mediocre game. Glad it is off steam if you ask me.
