A week ago I mentioned
how Alien: Colonial Marines
is striving to remain faithful to the source material - the film, Aliens
- but Aliens
is arguably the primary influence for modern first person shooters.
This new trailer further reinforces that idea, but also goes into detail on how Aliens: Colonial Marines
deviates from the film Aliens
, thereby adding another layer to the Möbius strip.
I'm not ashamed to admit to loving Gearbox. Randy Pitchford can spend all the time he wants producing videos where he excitedly talks up his own games, but Aliens: Colonial Marines
had me at Gearbox.
Alien: Colonial Marines
comes out for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC on February 12th.
