Aliens disappoints, Demos kill sales, and Toys are fun


9:30 PM on 02.12.2013



Hello there, boys and girls! It's your creepy uncle Max with another installment of the critically-acclaimed [citation needed] Destructoid Show!

Today we talk about Aliens: Colonial Marines, which seems to be the bummer of the week here in video game land.

In post-apocalyptic news, Obsidian devs wouldn't be opposed to make another Fallout, and Brian Fargo's Kickstarter'd Wasteland 2 shows off its first gameplay.
