Does anybody remember Aliens: Colonial Marines? I certainly don't, but it's hardly surprising, since the game was canceled by EA in 2002 and never saw the light of day. Now, a whole six years later, the game -- very much like the aliens themselves -- has undergone a resurrection.

Gearbox (Brothers in Arms) has rescued Colonial Marines from EA's basement and will be bringing the squad-based shooter to PC and consoles in 2009. It will be published by SEGA.

As a huge fan of all things Xenomorph, this is great news to me. While Aliens games have been spotty, I'd go out on a limb and say they've been one of the more successful videogame licenses to date, and the potential is always there for a great Alien-em-up to be had. Just give me some guns, some current-gen graphics, and a bucketful of chestbursting, phallus-headed acid droolers and I'm sold.

This Destiny trailer makes me want to get my ass to Mars

In Destiny, the tops of long-lost skyscrapers poke through the surface of Mars which means, presumably, we'll have to work our way down through them to reach whatever lurks below. I'm not expecting to find anything good down...more
