Aliens: Colonial Marines gets official release date

Aliens: Colonial Marines gets official release date

While not technically ‘NSFW’ (unless you count the violence), I’m still going to post the latest video for Aliens: Colonial Marines because, well, it’s my site and I’ve been waiting 26 years for this game.

Unfortunately, it looks like I am going to have to wait a bit longer.

Gearbox released a new trailer for Aliens: Colonial Marines today, and announced that the official release date will be February 12th, 2013.

Ever since I saw Aliens in the theater at the inappropriately young age of 8 (thanks dad!), I’ve been obsessed with the Alien universe and, more importantly, the Colonial Marines themselves. Growing up, I only drew USCM soldiers and Boba Fett.

Seeing Aliens at such an impressionable age had its draw backs too. Aside from the frequent nightmares I have about being a Colonial Marine stuck in a hopeless scenario, it also jaded me to watching kids movies. Instead of going to Disney films in the theater I went to see RoboCop (1987), Predator (1987), and Die Hard (1988). So you can do the math: I was born in 1978.

Being a Colonial Marine fighting Xenomorphs is my worst nightmare and also my favorite fantasy in the whole world. I don’t care if I have to wait until 2015 to play Aliens: Colonial Marines, I just want it to be perfect. Thankfully, after watching the video below, I have complete faith in Gearbox.

Can someone please put me in cryosleep chamber and wake me when it’s 2013? Thanks!
