SEGA! Gearbox is developing this one and it will take place after the events of the Aliens movie which is the perfect place to start if you ask me. The best news to me is that the writers of Battlestar Galactica will be writing for the game. Yes! It's a FPS by the way. Cannot wait!

That's all I could find. From what I remember reading in Game Informer is that it's a squad based shooter, like the rainbow 6 games. Sounds REALLY awesome, we've all been waiting for a good Aliens game since the Commodore 64. And if you remember that, I pity you.

Nice I haven't seen anything from the game yet. Looks like Aliens to me.

Alien vs. Predator was a pretty damn good game. Especially playing as the Marines, very intense.

What was the other Alien game Gearbox is going to make? Was it an RTS or RPG or something like that?

The FPS is what I've been drooling over though.

Sweet! Although I'm still bummed the game wasn't at E3 or PAX. I wish they'd hurry it up already, its been so long since the masterpiece that was AvP2. And thank god its coming to PC.

I haven't heard anything about a PSP version but I hope for your sake it happens. I'd hate to miss out on this one.

A little update for anyone wondering where this game went-
http://www.gamesradar.com/xbox360/aliens-colonial-marines/preview/aliens-colonial-marines/a-20090106115325220079/g-20070604114510395087
I'm a little worried if it isn't too late for this one. A squad based shooter fighting off bloodthirsty aliens in dark corridors with big, loud guns. Sounds awfully familiar, right? A shame, really, considering how many games have borrowed from the movies. Now it seems old hat.
Oh well, you know I for one will be all over this like stink on a monkey.

Shooting aliens never gets old especially when they're Aliens.

Hello there, Floyd! Here I thought we lost you.

I guess my concern is that the younger crowd might not appreciate a honest to god Colonial Marines game. "Aw, this is just Rainbow 6/Halo/GoW, no big deal". I myself have waited patiently for years now for a good Aliens game (no, I didn't get suckered into buying a Jaguar) and am giddy with fanboy anticipation.

Ha, nope didn't lose me I got a job.

Yeah, I don't know how the younguns view Alien these days. Myself I couldn't find my Alien Quadrilogy after moving so I said screw it and bought a new one. I have to watch these movies on a monthly basis. I'm still waiting for them to come out on Blu-Ray. Won't that be something.
