Aliens


So yeah, Aliens: Colonial Marines is pretty glitchy, but considering the lack of entertainment value in every other facet of the game, I guess we have to take our laughs where we can get them. This, for the record, is worth a solid chuckle.  At least this game's proving itself fertile ground for video clips and .gif silliness!


The verdict is in for Aliens: Colonial Marines, and it's not pretty. Even having beaten the campaign over a week ago, I'm still in a hazy shock over just how bad it was, even by licensed game standards. Of course, I've made i...


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...


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 re...

Here's a hot new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines, which is finally arriving on February 12 AND THERE'S NOT A DAMN THING ANYBODY CAN DO TO STOP IT. Except, delay it. I guess they could delay it.  Anyway, check out t...

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has said that Borderlands 2 wouldn't be coming to Wii U, due to an inability to exploit the GamePad in some sort of Earth-shattering way. In contrast, the studio has plenty of ideas for Aliens: Col...


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. ...


An Aliens vs. Predator game was announced, and I did not know it. Granted, it's a mobile game, and those things manages to tumble out of the woodwork at a rate too swift to monitor, but even so, my failure brings me incalcula...


[Destructoid's Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called 'Sup, Holmes?' so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says 'Sup, Holmes?' on it. This is that show. Subscribe...

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. 


Today's episode of The Destructoid Show is brought to you by a flock of magical falcons who carried it here in a net woven out of gossamer spider-silk. Okay, not really. I just wanted to write something interesting. Sega rel...


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.


According to some of the biggest first-person shooters on the market, women don't exist. Men give birth to men who become manly men and shoot stuff with man-guns. However, not only is that unrealistic, it's exclusionary, sil...


E3 2011 was one of more memorable E3 for many of us at Destructoid thanks solely to Sega's Sonic Boom event. Seriously, just watch the above video to see the pure insanity of the entire night's events. Sonic Boom is taking p...

Another event, another Aliens: Colonial Marines preview from yours truly. I caught my first glimpse of this interactive Aliens sequel one year ago during E3 2011, and I was suitably impressed. Of course, watching a hands-off ...


To my knowledge, Gearbox's Aliens: Colonial Marines has been given release dates in 2010, 2011, 2012 and more recently 2013. Four consecutive years. Four years slated for release, with shifting dates in between. One could jus...
