Can Aliens: Colonial Marines Free Itself from Prometheus' Shadow? (1UP)

"With the runaway success of 2009's Borderlands, Dallas-based developer Gearbox created a reputation for itself as more than just the studio behind a few Half-Life expansions or WW2 shooters, but one capable of offering its own serious creative output. With the long-in-development Aliens: Colonial Marines finally set for release early next year, Gearbox's latest trailer is capitalizing on the film franchise's return to theaters with next month's prequel-in-all-but-name, Prometheus.", writes 1Up.

I thought the two games would of went hand in hand. People watch Prometheus and then get the mood for more Aliens and pick up the blu ray collection of the films or the Game!
