Introduction



About the game
Aliens: Colonial Marines is a first person shooter made by the lovely chaps at Gearbox and published by Sega. This much we know. What we don't know, however, is why the hell it was ever greenlit for release or even once considered a meaningful contribution to the Alien(s) franchise. Yes. That's right. Gearbox (and the 46 million other developers who worked on this game) were given the green light by 20th Century Fox to expound on actual Aliens lore and boy did they do a fucking terrible job. Corporal Hicks is back, alive and kicking, ships are all over the place, Wayland-Yutani are in full swing questioning the logic already established by the movies and novels from the franchise.

All in all this game is just a huge disservice to fans of the franchise and yet another disgusting cash in on movie licensing... so with that said... let's give them money and play it! Nothing like positive reinforcement of bad practices, right?
