Sega has released a new trailer for their sci-fi first-person shooter, Aliens: Colonial Marines. After a much criticized cinematic around the “marine-cliché” motif – which I personally took as Aliens’ dark humor – it’s now time for Sega to show off the game’s multiplayer side. It’s a good trailer, which will probably make a better service in selling a few more pre-orders than the previous one. The marine-talk cliché is still present, but let’s face it, that’s part of Aliens, so, there’s simply no way around that. Prepare for blood, gore and fear. Some of the Marines and Aliens abilities are also revealed.
Personally, I prefer when there’s less Alien Xenomorphs around, when the setting is darker, the space tighter and you can’t see the aliens in much detail. Oh, and, apparently the Weyland Yutani Corporation has not yet learned to better equip its marines. When there was a surprise factor involved it was understandable, but after the first bloodshed, they still run out of clips? :) I understand the need to be faithful to the franchise origins, but where’s the cavalry? Unless this is a re-imagining of the Aliens movie itself and the marines were once more caught by surprise of course.Subscribe RSS
