Aliens: Colonial Marines video pits Xenos against Marines

Time for another Aliens: Colonial Marines developer diary. Just look at the way Randy Pitchford puts those glasses on his face in slow motion with repeating video frames. Ooh, he is like the Prince Regent of Badasses or something! This time around, Gearbox talks about the differences in playing Xenomorphs and Marines in multiplayer while trying to look really cool. Oh, those cool dudes.

Aliens: Colonial Marines dev diary promises authenticity

Developer diaries really make me cringe. They're really just a studio masturbating on camera for a few minutes. It's especially bad with this Aliens: Colonial Marines one, because really the underlying message is, "We met Ridley Scott and you didn't, f*ck you!"  Still, there's some cool Aliens stuff in there for fans. Watch it if you want.
