The Daily Hotness: Aliens Colonial Marines' pacifist mode

Check out everything Destructoid did today



The hotly anticipated Aliens: Colonial Marines dropped today, much to the eventual disappointment of about everyone who has played it. Jim tore it up, defeated and sad, in his review, if you're interested. But maybe there is something to Colonial Marines. I mean, how many first-person shooters allow you to play through long stretches of the game without having to fire your weapon? The folks over at PCGamesN might have inadvertently sold me on the game with this video, which hints at the subversive commentary Colonial Marines offers in a AAA landscape filled with wanton violence and ... No, I'm kidding, don't play this game.

Today, we delivered some extra Aliens related content to make up for the soggy thud Colonial Marines dropped with, Fraser Brown wrote a stirring counterpoint to Allistair's claim that violence is essential in games, our site violated a trademark and the community showed off its ingenuity in response, Conrad reviewed Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, which is a game that is out and pretty good, and more!

I know I'm making a 4th post by doing this, but for some reason my quickpost posted as multiples... Apologies for the clogging.

We don't do Friday Night Fights anymore right? Any DTOIDers have Battlefront or WiiU parties that could use the company of An Eager to Cunnilingus Cannibal?

Xbox One proves that they're useless.They said that they are better than Sony's PS4 since they've got more and better exclusives and that doesn't mean that they should offer most of the exclusives to PC.Now there's no need to own an Xbox.

Well, I just ordered in an Undertale shirt. Despite my being crap at the game, it's just so charming. So. Ridiculously. Charming. I can't get mad at it, despite my awfulness at the bullet hell aspects.

So, SMT IV: Final looks like it'll make fans of the older games happy. Especially fans of SMT 2.

Do games go in cycles like style? I mean, I think I can just as well play my 1993 Space Hulk (PC CD) instead of getting the moderately new Space Hulk instead.

Naruto 4 installs on my PS4 and it updates. Game says it can't run story mode during installation. Nothing's installing though. Restarted PS4. Reinstalled. Nothing. Fucking dumb.

Tonight, I learned what Flanx and MrNovember sound like in discord, listened to the best idea for a movie ever, and learned a little more about the depths of human depravity. A night well spent. Fuck us all.

So, the artist that they used for Street Fighter 5's story mode(the arcade one) is kinda...not good. Go look up Laura's CGs. Colors are pale, and proportions sometimes end up kinda bonkers. Like, "extreme hourglass figure" level of bonkers.

Finished SOMA today , was able to do a second run without enemies with the "Wuss" mod, found it actually more frightening has you get more time to think about what is really going instead of doing hide-and-seek with the AI (Alien Isolation I miss you)
