Aliens Games Back on Steam

Steam is once again offering sales of Aliens vs. Predator [2010] and Aliens: Colonial Marines following about a week when neither game was sold on the service (thanks GameInformer). Neither SEGA nor Valve commented on the removal of the games, and likewise there is no explanation about their return.

I enjoyed the hell out of A:CM. More than got my moneys worth. Not sure what made that game so cool to hate outside of the E3 video, but it was a solid title with good gameplay and fun multiplayer.

To each his own I suppose

Wow really? Have you played any of the AvP games?


I only paid $4.99 for A:CM and the Season Pass. I say I got my money's worth out of it.

Much more than that? Probably not, but I thought it was worth what I paid at least.

Except you mean "couldn't care less" as that's what the expression actually is, and makes no sense the way you use it. Think about it - how much less could you care? Really?

Sorry - there are only two things that bug me in this life - "Patty's Day!" when it's "Paddy's Day!" and the one you just used.

lol..called it. Every year it seems like there is at least one well known title, franchise, or publisher that has their stuff pulled from Steam for whatever reason at the turn of the year. Video game sales and distribution rights seems so unnecessarily complicated to me.

Except they usually don't come back. See Wolfenstein (2009), Deadpool, Dragon Age 2, Prey, Clive Barker's Jericho, FUEL, etc.

That is actually a pretty hefty list of games that have not returned, many of which I hadn't even noticed were gone. That said, it wasn't my point that they "usually" come back. It was my point, just as I wrote, that it seems like there is always at least ONE of these well known titles that comes and goes and comes back and there never really is a clear reason explained to anyone. Always around the turn of the year as well.

For whatever reason, probably because I have zero faith that Sega has any idea what it's doing, I assumed this was a blunder of some sort when it was first noticed. Well that and the fact that Sega doesn't have a distribution client of it's own. Had it been an EA game like Dragon Age 2, I would have assumed that they had decided to only offer the game through their own distribution software.

Pretty sick of Valve's silence on anything like this. Have some respect for your customers.
It is really more than likely nothing to do with Valve/Steam and all to do with the publishing rights from 20th Century.
Probably, so what's stopping Valve from sending a 2-word email to journalists asking about it?

And With some games only being around as digital now with a disk being non-existent, stuff happening like this means some games can just up and disappear. In this case, I could care less if A:CM disappeared, but I'm sure some kids got some enjoyment out of it.

I might reinstall AvP for the sake of having something to do when I find myself on the teetering edge of PoE ladder burn out and need something new.

Then again, I should really download Isolation again since it fucked up the installation and finish it too. Yeah, that's what I'll do...tomorrow.
