The lights are on
Nobody at Gearbox played any Left 4 Dead, no sir.
Just when you thought xenomorphs were bad enough, new types show up that spit acid, blow up when you shoot them, and resist tons of damage while charging your group and laying waste with brutal melee attacks.
Aliens: Colonial Marines comes out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on February 12. The Wii U version should be out shortly thereafter.

Looks like tons of variety!
I'm still on the fence with this game. I hope they can finally do the franchise some justice.
I've been waiting for this since 2008, finally!!!
Wow you really had me bummed for a second. I'm glad I took your words with a grain of salt and decided to watch the video. Other than the spitter and the "Tank" all of the other types work completely different than LFD. LFD didn't have human characters that specialized in certain things either. You talk like the only thing you know about left for dead is what you've heard from someone else. Gaming journalism at its best :P
I can't wait!!! 2 more weeks!
I only need to know one thing:
Who's making the action figures?
I'm still not convinced. I enjoyed playing as Xenomorph and Predator in AvP so much, that playing a simple FPS with Marines seems boring. I'd much rather have another AvP. But I'll stay tuned for more gameplay videos and make up my mind later.
I want to be excited for this game but it seems like the more I see of it the less interested I become. As I understand it, the multiplayer is limited to 4v4 which kinda bummed me out. But more than that is just the visual and graphics. It just doesn't pop or live up to what one would expect from the final months of this generation consoles. I am definitely waiting to hear some first-hand accounts. Maybe rent for the campaign.
I think that looks awesome. Appart from the obvious ability copy, they really made it thiers. This is Aliens after all.
Xenomorphs are awesome
