Aliens: Colonial Marines Story Trailer

December 27, 2012

I started to re-watch Aliens 3 the other day, but then got distracted by other things and didn’t complete it.  I can see now that I better watch all the movies again before this game comes out.  I like where this is going.       Via EvAv.

    Indeed. Hicks looks like shit by the way. The character model. It’s almost a caricature, really. Just goes to show you that artistic creativity often trumps graphical fidelity, at least this gen anyway.

    Guy with the bag over his head is Hicks. Check out his distress call (bandaged left arm & the textures of his ripped shirt; they’re the same). Weyland-Yutani most likely switched Hicks’ body before they wound up on Fury161 (Aliens 3’s penal colony). You see an impaled body which is “supposedly” Hicks, but he is actually never shown. The only ones shown are Ripley & Newt. Just blew your minds, right?

      I know. Providing plausible and engaging explanations for the haphazard writing of Aliens 3 strengthens both it and A:CM, and is what I am looking forward to most in this game. Outstanding! Personally, I always thought Alien 3 had a fantastic setting and was loaded with atmosphere (I like the religion aspect, too, as I do with Dune). However, but because it was so different from the others and so different from what people were expecting, it received somewhat unfair low reviews (admittedly, the long gimmicky camera angle chases at the end were a let down after the nail-biting, grab your girlfriend and squeeze her, terror of the stalking in Alien, or the hunting in Aliens).

      And @ty, yes about creative story/gameplay over graphic fidelity, though it is awesome when everything comes together.
