Aliens: Colonial Marines innovates with self-heal glass!

Aliens: Colonial Marines is a stinker, this much is true. However, it's not all bad. As the super-duper really-real canonical sequel to Aliens, Gearbox's outsourced labor of love is rewriting the script on a beloved movie fr...

Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines photo
Review: Aliens: Colonial Marines
by Jim Sterling

Aliens: Colonial Marines has been one of my most anticipated games every year for over half a decade. My love of anything distinctly related to Xenomorphs, as well as my general high regard for the majority of Aliens games released over the years, made it a sure winner in my book.

At the start of every year, it made my "most wanted" list, but every single year, it was delayed, consistently pushed back for one reason or another. Rebellion's Aliens vs. Predator, released in 2010, was a playable but disappointing runner-up, and I remained convinced that, with Gearbox's guidance and love for the license, Colonial Marines would be the Aliens game I'd waited for my whole life. 

Boy, do I miss Rebellion's Aliens vs. Predator.

Five space horror games better than Dead Space 3 photo
Five space horror games better than Dead Space 3
by Allistair Pinsof

By now, you may have heard the inarguable, absolute truth -- as is the case with Destructoid's reviews that are handed down from the maker to our holy reviewers -- that Dead Space 3 is not as great as the first two games.

Being the case, throwing a temper tantrum and spamming EA's Facebook with inflammatory comments is understandable, but why not do something more productive, like play five other space-horror classics instead?

(Or, just go ahead and play Dead Space 3 which is still really awesome for what it is!)

Aliens: Colonial Marines is finally finished photo
Aliens: Colonial Marines is finally finished
by Conrad Zimmerman

It seems like we've been waiting an eternity for Aliens: Colonial Marines to see release, with the game having been expected as early as 2010. Today, a post on the Gearbox website confirms that the wait will only be a month longer, as the title has been certified gold and shipped to the printers ensuring the game will release on February 12, as scheduled.

The game has appeared to have great potential every time we've seen it, so my hopes are running pretty high for the title. Of course, we'll have a review just as soon as is humanly possible.

No Borderlands 2 for Wii U, wouldn't be 'OMG' enough

Aliens: Colonial Marines gets Survival Mode trailer

I have to admit, you can throw a wave-based survival mode into almost any game, and I'll be happy. I've always got time for that particular game type, and the inclusion of Xenomorphs just makes it all the more perfect. ...
