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.

Destiny has so much lore, it's sad that almost none of it is in the game

In-game, Destiny's story is probably the worst part of the experience. Constant Dinklebot "defense" missions and short exposes during load screens are hardly what I'd call a narrative, but that's what Bungie ended up giving u...more

If you happen to have EA Access, I highly recommend playing Garden Warfare

I keep forgetting about EA Access. Perhaps you can say the same. It's a $4.99-per-month service for Xbox One that gives unlimited access to select games from you-know-who along with other perks like early demos. One of my fav...more
