After watching this latest trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines I had to double check the title. Okay, it's Aliens and not Alien, so I guess two minutes of a drill sergeant yelling at me about overcoming fear, huge guns Freud would have fits over, and plenty of fire and explosions makes sense. Oh, it's named the "Kick Ass" trailer, that's pretty straight forward. Bros, this trailer is for you.
Up until this trailer most of what I've played and seen of Aliens: Colonial Marines has focused on suspense, rather than action. I guess that may not be entirely fair to this trailer, as there was still a good amount of screen flashing, sneaky aliens and dudes getting pounced. It's mainly that voiceover from the drill sergeant that's bothering me, I suppose. I'm kind of hoping he's not in the game.
Aliens: Colonial Marines, Gearbox Software's take on the popular franchise, is coming to PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U February 12. As expected from the franchise, it's got a solid multiplayer mode on top of an intense single-player (and co-op) campaign.
