Severed doll's head = Aliens: Colonial Marines at E3

So, Nick and myself each received a burned, severed doll's head in the mail. With E3 right around the corner, this kind of nonsensical paraphernalia is quite common, but our powers of deduction leads us to believe this particular head is a bit more interesting than the usual garbage. 

The head was sent to us by one Rebecca Jorden. Any Aliens fan worth his salt (and being fat, this Aliens fan's got a LOT of salt) would recognize the name as belonging to Newt, the sole survivor of the Xenomorph attack on LV-426. She carried a doll head around with her during the film. Then she got killed off for no reason in Alien 3, which was hilarious. 

So, it's definitely Aliens related. With rumors of a DS game and confirmation of a Creative Assembly game, it could be either of those two projects, but we reckon it's Aliens: Colonial Marines. The Gearbox-led title is canonically related to the Aliens film for a start, and the Creative Assembly title seems to only be in its infancy, not to mention they keep using the Alien title, rather than Aliens (there is a big, very nerdy, difference). As for the DS one -- I don't think they'd hype that with plastic heads. 

[Edit: The cat's out of the bag, since other online writers decided to say that they were seeing the game at E3. I'm not saying WE have an appointment and were trying to make it sound like we didn't in order to not break the secret. We definitely didn't do that.]
