The lights are on
Sega has released a new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines that shows off some action narrated by a rousing speech. It's almost enough to make you want to head over to enlist and go through space boot camp.
There's plenty of action to accompany the talk, including shots of xenomorphs getting torn apart and a nice exoskeleton neck-snap move. All that speechifying does seem a bit like overcompensation, however. The Colonial Marines may be the best that humanity has to offer, but we all remember how that last bug hunt went. Maybe they should save the bravado and champagne for when the mission's done.
For another look at the game, take a look at an earlier trailer. It shows what's inside a xeno hive. Warning: You may want to wear rubber boots before you set foot inside.
Look for Aliens: Colonial Marines on February 12.

Heck yeah! I hope this game does well; it'd be nice to see a third party wii game prosper. Don't get me wrong, the Zeldas are great and so are some of the Marios, but a nice change of pace in this scope would certainly make me actually consider picking up this console.
