I don't think you'll be disappointed JT.  I plan on picking it up as soon as the store opens on Tuesday.

Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass Detailed

Aliens: Colonial Marines will be laying an egg in your guts and hatching in a shower of blood and viscera next week, meaning its high time SEGA announced its DLC plans for the game, right? Gearbox's FPS sequel to the 1986 Aliens movie will be offering up a Season Pass for its add-ons, with four packs in the offing.

Starting with recently outed Bug Hunt DLC on March 19th, the Season Pass will also give players access to a further three packs, resulting in a total saving of 40% over buying the add-ons separately. Bug Hunt is essentially Aliens: Colonial Marines' version of Horde, with waves of Xenomorphs to shoot.

The Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass will set you back 2400 Microsoft Points. The game itself is out on February 12th. Game over, man. Game over. Or rather, not game over.

I'm tempted by this. I'll let a few of you guys playtest the multiplayer for a week or so, If you guy's reckon it's a online stayer then I'll pick it up.

Well, it'll be out tomorrow.  I'm still trying to decide where to focus my early Xeno unlocks.  It's a tough choice because I think the Spitter class will be best for me when I play Escape, but the Lurker is great for picking guys off in Deathmatch or that mode where there are eggs to destroy/protect.  Besides, with the Lurker having a fatality called "Palate Jack" how can I not want that?

I'm kinda surprised they went with allowing the Xeno players in Escape to select their own class instead of the Left 4 Dead method of assigning them evenly.  After all, when the teams are even, if the Xenos are all Lurkers, they could time their special pounce to instantly win the round.

I'll be on it tomorrow, though I might jump into multiplayer first to pick off the early players who haven't had their hands on the game yet :P  Will do some campaign co-op tomorrow though as well.
I like my women how I like my coffee: ground up and in the freezer.

The doctors say his chances are 50/50... but there's only a 10% chance of that.

Seen a few reviews appearing online today, 7.9/10 is the best i've seen, 4/10 the worst with a couple of others nearer 4 than 7, good thing I don't care about them!   :)

Aliens: Colonial Marines - Early review scores appear online
General press embargo set to lift tomorrow

A handful of early Aliens: Colonial Marines review scores have made their way on to the internet.

Most notable is that of UK games mag Games TM, which according to subscribers has issued the Gearbox FPS a 4/10.

For a more rounded overview of the game's critical reception, check back tomorrow morning when the general press embargo lifts. We'll update this round-up when it does.

Published scores:

Games TM - 4/10: "Mechanically, the game functions, but the fun of the Aliens universe is quickly drained away by what amounts to a mundane shooting gallery through a drab and lifeless world."
PS3gen.fr - 5/10: (Translated) "We expected a lot from this project. And unfortunately, our disappointment was all the greater."
ITNewsAfrica - 7.9: (Pulled)

Early reviews are pushed to attract web traffic.
Negative reviews of a heavily marketed game are pushed to attract web traffic.

The game may be crap, but I'm certainly not going to trust the word of sites just looking to attract web traffic.

If there's one thing I've learned...reviews are merely opinions clouded by expectations, sprinkled with biases and sometimes formed by agendas. Play on.  :)

I will check this out at some point, but I've got a list that's scolding me for not paying attention to it...Deus Ex: Human Revolution / Rage / Assassin's Creed Revelations & III /The Walking Dead / Tomb Raider / Bioshock Infinite.....

Deus Ex HR is a great one you should work on then!  I'm interested in the live action film coming out about it.

Aliens is still going to be in my hands as early as I can manage to break through the door get it home from gamestop.
