Jimquisition: Previewed, Preordered, Prescrewed

Preorder culture expects gamers to trust developers more than ever, but how does that work when they inspire so little faith? The "take cash now, provide content later" tactic is currently serving companies well, but with recent disappoint...

Torture yourself with Obsidian's Aliens: Crucible footage

Aliens: Colonial Marines 360 save wipe bug

Aliens: Colonial Marines mods add better lighting

Gearbox lied about Aliens: From E3 demo to retail product

How often we forget that demos are sales tools, designed to pitch consumers a dream of what may be, not what actually is. Dull knives slice cans like butter, hamburgers perfectly cook on a budget grill, and Aliens: Colonial Marines looks li...

So ... who the hell DID make Aliens: Colonial Marines?

Aliens games to play that aren't Aliens: Colonial Marines

Aliens: Colonial Marines is finally out over more than half a decade of waiting, and the disappointment is real enough to lick. It's a terrible letdown, to the point that this particular Aliens fan -- who buys almost anything Xenomorph rela...

Reviews Elsewhere: Aliens: Colonial Marines

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 it quite clear i...

Aliens: Colonial Marines innovates with self-heal glass!
