Let's discuss the new next-gen Aliens game coming out in 2009.
Game Informer has a cover story on this game. I haven't gotten my issue yet.
I might get this game depending on if it's just a shoot-em up (yes) or a horror (no). I don't like horror games which is why I don't want Bioshock.
I personally hope it's like AVP for the PC where there's multiple stories (one for Marines & one for Aliens) & online multiplayer.

EDIT: Crap I wanted this to be in the Multiplatform section. If a mod reads this please put it in there.

SEGA Reveals Details Of Upcoming Aliens: Colonial MarinesTM Video Game

First-Person Shooter Based on Popular Motion Picture Franchise Coming to Xbox 360®, PLAYSTATION®3, and PC in Late 2008

LONDON AND SAN FRANCISCO (February 21st, 2008) - SEGA Europe Ltd. and SEGA of America, Inc. today revealed details of the highly anticipated squad-based first-person shooter video game, Aliens: Colonial Marines™. Licensed through an exclusive agreement with Twentieth Century Fox Licensing and Merchandising and developed by Gearbox Software, the game will be available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Windows-based PC in late 2008.

In Aliens: Colonial Marines, players are part of a United States Colonial Marine squad and must prepare to face an alien assault more intense and horrific than ever before. Driven by a compelling and original story penned by renowned writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle Aliens: Colonial Marines will retain the atmospheric look and feel of the original films while leveraging next-generation technology to create an entirely new interactive Aliens experience.

Packing classic Aliens weaponry ranging from pulse rifles to flamethrowers as well as brand-new equipment and skills all within a squad-based combat system, players will become an elite United States Colonial Marine. Featuring claustrophobic environments, a brooding soundtrack, and a multitude of surprises and shocks, players will battle against menacing alien hordes in strikingly detailed levels that include the stark interiors of the abandoned Sulaco and unique environments created specifically for the game.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will feature a story driven single-player mode and an all-new four player co-op mode allowing players to share the chilling experience with three friends. In co-op mode, each player will assume the persona of a Colonial Marine and have a distinct role to play in the completion of every mission. Additionally, more multiplayer modes will be revealed later in the year that will complete the Aliens video game experience.

Since its 1979 debut, Alien and its three sequels have grossed more than $557 million worldwide, garnering numerous awards, including two Academy Awards®.

EDIT: Double post. Sorry.

EDIT 2: This should be moved to the Misc. and Multiplatform Games section.
 
This game looks freakin' dope. I love Aliens and this game looks like a very faithful recreation of it.
 
A) This is a game based off of the movies ?

B) Is Ripley in it ?
 
This looks sweet :up:
 
Ripley's dead. 1st words of the GI article.

But this game looks really cool and scary. I love games that could put some fear in ya.
 
At the request of the original poster and the fact that this is a multiplatform game, I moved it to the Multiplatform forum.
 
It's going to be a co-op FPS with the players being a squad of Colonial Marines. Up to 4 players. Players can customize their kits and load-outs. So you can have standard grunts, smartgunners, engineers, etc.

If this game is even half as badass as the old AVP games, it will rock.

My friends and I are already assigning squad positions - I called dibs on the Smartgun ;)
 
This is going to be freaking sweet.

I can't wait to hear the beep of the motion detector again.
 
Awesome details from OPM UK

- One of the early levels has you inside the ship from the end of Aliens AFTER Aliens, so you see all the damage the Queen and Ripley made in their fight etc.

- Interactive cutscenes as Aliens drag you into vents, using the D-PAD but requires more focus and skill than God of War or Resident Evil 4.

- Variety in missions like the a scene resembeling the Alien assualt scene. You basically have the turrets (awesome!) and your squad mates and you have to focus where the Aliens can come out from.

- While the blood won't dissolve everything, Gearbox are still looking in to how to impliment it.

Okay, best point for last...

- 4 PLAYER CO-OP

ZOMG ZOMG ZOMG
 
I'm surprised you guys didn't notice the mention of co-op in my previous post.
