Aliens: Colonial Marines - The biggest shooter license ever? (CVG)

CVG staff writes:The 'Alien' franchise was once a shining beacon of the Sci-fi genre.

Unfortunately for us though, the series found itself wandering steadily off course from Alien 3 onwards and never really returned to form.

And now, after two Alien versus Predator movies - which, it has to be said, were even worse than expected - all remaining remnants of fondness for the series have surely dispersed into the nearest airlock.

Still, chances are that if like us, you loved Cameron's 1986 sequel 'Aliens' then, deep down, you'll probably be willing to reconcile your differences.

If this is successful, it would be awesome to see Gearbox take on the Terminator license. I mean, why hasnt anybody cashed in on the Terminator franchise? Its ripe for an FPS game.

Terminator, Aliens, Predators are three of the powerhouse franchises. It blows my mind just how bad each of them have become.

Look at the Terminator movies.

1st one: Good.
2nd: Awesome!
3rd: Not so good.
4th: Funking Terrible

Alien Movies.
1st: Great!
2nd: Amazing
3rd: Ok
4th: Ok

1st: Amazingly Awesome
2nd: Not terrible, not great!
3rd: Crap-HORRIBLE!
4th: Wow that was awful!


I'm probably mentally blocking out some movies but they sucked anyways I am certain.

Imagine, if only James Cameron would direct all three Franchises!

Hate to break it to you, but there are only three Predator movies: P1, P2 and Predators.

gogospeedracer2524d ago (Edited 2524d ago )

I threw the Aliens vs Pred, movies together sense they were more about the Pred. anyways.

nolifeking2524d ago


Then that would be 5 pred movies and 6 alien movies which is pure bs.

gogospeedracer2524d ago (Edited 2524d ago )

Yep, go back and look kids!

4 Alien movies. 2 Alien/Pred. Movies. 3 Pred movies.

Look it up.

Alien 3 where she is pregnant.
Alien 4 with the guy from Sons of Anarchy.
Pred. 1 with Arnold.
Pred 2 with Danny Glover.
Predators with Fishbern (or whatever his name is).
Two Aliens vs. Pred Movies.


Like I said fella, 5 pred. movies. You can group them anyway you want. Gah!

nolifeking2524d ago

That's what I said. There are only three pred movies, but you said four. Now your trying to tell me to look up something I obviously already knew. Real classy guy.

Alien Trilogy on the PS1 is one of my all time favourite games.

If this is as good as that game (at the time) then I'll be a very happy gamer. I have faith that it will be, from what little we've seen so far.

In my opinion the AVP movies never happened, it was a dumb idea to begin with.

Read the original comics/books, its waaaaay better than the movies.
