Origin Stories: How Gearbox got to make Aliens: Colonial Marines

Gearbox Software started production on Aliens: Colonial Marines back in 2007, and after a torturous five-year development cycle pockmarked with delays, layoffs, and more delays, it finally comes out Feb. 12. But it started, like a lot of things do, with a list. (Aliens: Colonial Marines, Dev)

Considering there are no reviews yet and the game comes out in just a few days Im getting the feeling Gearbox is using the same strategy ID software done with RAGE.

Not necessarily. Lots of games have release-day embargoes. Assassin's Creed III did.

Okay, I see your point now.

Embargo is the day before I think, same with pretty much all other games.

If Ridley's hand-drawn notebook was included in a Special Edition, I would buy ALL THOSE SPECIAL EDITIONS.

Hearing all the loose chatter about Colonial Marines from other reviewers on Twitter has me worried...

I think it will be a decent game, not without its faults (like most games). I am not expecting something revolutionary though..maybe this game will give us a bit of suspense.

I am quite disappointed the "bug-mode" will be DLC as I would have expected a horde mode to be already on the disc.

We'll have to wait and see :)

same here. Its getting alot of hate from people who compare it to call of duty and who dont know how bad ass aliens the movie was. ive waited over 20 years for this game....unless the shoot button doesnt work on release day i feel i will like this game

got it this morning, you will be spending time fighting getting thru doors on coop, 4 players is way too much, shared ammo and health pack and armor makes it less of a survival or coop horror. the black and white screen is annoying if a player runs to a checkpoint, video clips can lag, the game is not as good as made out to be i doubt u will play it twice. the aliens has low physics. also feels last gen with hd gfx.

Been saying this since the first gameplay video. Just watch any of them at all. Get over the fact that it's aliens and get over the fact that it looks a big presentable. Look at the gameplay - it's very easy to notice that this is not a good game.

I actually don't understand where the hype came for it.
