Aliens: Colonial Marines – Limited Edition
February 21st, Considering that we know Gearbox is capable of making good games, with the most obvious examples being the Borderlands series, and with some of their older Brothers in Arms games, the fact that Aliens: Colonial Marines went so wrong is sort of baffling. There is nothing in the game that looks like this…. But other things are far more noticeable, like the awful A. When the path-finding for friendly A.
This is the case of Aliens: Colonial Marines, where its Steam community multiplayer matchmaking for Colonial Marines is less than functional. Marines doesn’t deserve a good ribbing or that any of the issues with its.
Sega licensed the Aliens franchise awhile back and Gearbox eventually ended up with the task of developing what would be considered a sequel of sorts to Aliens and Alien 3 but set far before Alien Resurrection. The game breaks down into two sections, the campaign that can be played co-op or solo and then your versus section where all the multiplayer mayhem is centered. You can play this game two ways in the campaign, alone or with some friends.
Either way works, but honestly it might be more fun with some friends and the difficulty kicked up a notch. The story picks up with you as a Marine just getting pulled out of cryo. No one knows why as the squad that went in first has basically been either wiped out or has gone silent. Even in Aliens the Marines spent time getting chow and up to speed. It seems the Xenomorphs are alive and well on the Sulaco and have taken over a good chunk of the lower sections of the ship. Now remember what Bishop said in the film about the area being a cloud of vapor the size of Nebraska?
Well he may have over-stepped a bit as there is quite a remarkable amount of damage but quite a bit of the structures are still there.
I am just going to come right out and say that this game is plain awful! I am a huge fan of the Alien movies, and words cannot express the joy that I felt when I found out that they were making this game. The best I feel is the old Aliens Vs Predator computer game. I used to play that game all of the time, and when I first heard about Aliens: Colonial Marines I envisioned the game would be similar.
Matchmaker is broken in Steam/Valve and we the players of Aliens want it fixed. YOU are causeing the game to fail, and loosing countless.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Review
Like many, I too was a fan of the original Alien films while growing up. The dark and twisted sci-fi horror feeling that the film produced went on to inspire many top hitter titles today such as the Dead Space and Halo franchises. Sadly that flame nearly died the moment I started playing.
At the time of writing, Bungie are “in talks” to add a matchmaking system to This is the problem of the practice of pre-ordering. Nobody needs reminding about the dissonance between Aliens: Colonial Marines’s marketing.
Aliens: Colonial Marines is a squad-based first-person shooter in which the player controls four Colonial Marines, each with a different personality and primary weapon. Each player character can carry additional weapons including a flamethrower, pulse rifle, smartgun, pistol, RPG, and many types of grenades. The player controls one marine at a time, issues orders to the others using context-sensitive commands, and may switch between characters at any time. A new low for a once respected franchise.
It’s all there. The game basically put itself on a pedestal as the sequel to Aliens, when in reality only 3 missions are dedicated to aliens and the rest have you facing Weyland-Yutani Mercs. Did I mention there are only 7 levels? Well, okay, I could forgive that if the rest of it would be amazing. Well it isn’t, let me explain. Graphics are completely useless when making a game, they could have a made a black pixel, called it an alien and I’d be happy, but here they tried to create an atmosphere that required graphics and failed, with graphical tears on the console versions and the pc version having a problem with framerate stability, and all of them having a lack of effective textures, lack of color, and the overall blandness you’d find in a Call of Duty game.
But that’s nothing, for me, it’s all about the gameplay, story, and characters, in that order, and! Want me to hit it home?
The Division’s latest update is kind of a disaster
I have fond memories of Aliens vs Predator 2 multiplayer, in which I most often played the part of a terrified marine, a coward really who should never have signed up, abandoning my team and shooting wildly at shadows whenever anything resembling an alien jittered across the screen. Four marines must escape, booking it through a level while player-controlled aliens, some with special abilities, attempt to eviscerate them.
A trailer skitters in the darkness below. I like Aliens although a great deal less than Alien and I like Left 4 Dead, so is this the game mode that finally makes me excited about Colonial Marines?

Rebellion Developments has identified and confirmed an issue with the matchmaking system in the PC demo of Aliens vs Predator. It is not known yet whether or not a fix will be provided. I’ve been waiting 30 minutes Something tells me, this issue is going to still be here on Launch, and it could spoil the whole game. PC issues? PS3 issues? EvilBlackCat Someone seems a bit insecure. Perhaps you are over compensating for lack of good games on your favored console well besides Mass Effect of course, because you haven’t had a good game in years before it.
I was able to connect on the PC and version, but the PS3 version’s matchmaking did not seem to work properly. I actually enjoyed this demo quite a bit on the PC. DirectX 11 isn’t in the demo, but the game still looked and ran great on the highest available settings.
