Aliens: Colonial Marines Fan Petition

Fans have started an online petition to ask for female characters to be an active part in the upcoming Aliens Colonial Marine videogame by Gearbox Software and Sega. If you agree with the below statement, you can sign the petition here.

While we fully support Gearbox, We would like to request the inclusion of playable females. The ALIENS franchise is dominated by strong females such as Ripley, Vasquez, Ferro, Dietrich and most importantly, The Queen. There is roughly 5-6 months before the game goes Gold and releases February 12th, 2013. We believe ALIENS is the perfect starting point for developers to start including playable females in more multiplayer shooters. And what better company to start this than Gearbox with the success of Borderlands and the benchmark shooter Brothers in Arms? 

There are many females that enjoy playing video games and are fans of the films who are tired of playing as a male all the time. Lets let Gearbox Software see how important this is to the ALIENS franchise!

“What we want is the ability to create a CUSTOM female to represent ourselves just like the men can, in multiplayer/co-op in order for us to “Become a Colonial Marine

    Why mess the chance to continue to allow such a legacy to be your bread-and-better by signing a petition that could potentially piss off the people that continually support you? 


    You mean "people that continually pay him".

    Doubt it.

    They've probably already been paid anyway.

    There might be a sequel.  If Henriksen's character survives A:CM, he might be reluctant to throw his hat into signing a petition if he knows there is a chance he could return and get paid again.  His original portrayal of Bishop has led him to some pretty lucrative deals in film sequels (Alien3 and AvP) and also given him quite a presence in video games based on the Alien franchise (AvP2010, Alien Trilogy, and now A:CM). 

    Why mess the chance to continue to allow such a legacy to be your bread-and-better by signing a petition that could potentially piss off the people that continually support you? 

    I'm just saying...

    Nice! Mr. Ross is on board!

    I didn't know that the original script for Aliens had everyone showering together, no matter the gender. That would have been a powerful scene, show a lot about how in the marines in Aliens you are not divided by race or gender.
  8. Moosh89
    So I also wrote Mr. Ricco Ross (Frost... FRRRROSSSSSSST!!!)

    Waiting for a reply from him as well

    Heres what we have so far:
    - Cynthia Scott

    Waiting for:
    - Jenette Goldstein
    - Gale Anne Hurd
    - Al Matthews
    - Ricco Ross
    - Colette Hiller


    Need to write:
    - Lance Henriksen
    - Mark Rolston
    - Farrah White (Bella)


    Wishful Thinking:
    - James Cameron (I have his agent's email address!)

    If anyone has contact info (email) for these people or their agents, please PM it to me :) Thank you!!!

    You want a playable Newt?

    With an explosive Casey?

    Also, I will draw this up when I buy my digital tablet, I so want to see this.


    I have been saying for awhile now, I would love a capture the flag style mode where you need to capture Newt... she would have her own AI and scurry around in vents and stuff, and she would fight you off by hitting, squirming and biting haha. Marines need to get her to Medlab, ALIENS need to get her to the hive, that would be too funny!

    Anyway. If you guys want me to, I will try to track Ms. Henn down as well


    That would be so freaking awesome.

    Haha.  I was saying all of that half jokingly...but an explosive Casey would be cool except it sounds more like an improvised terrorist weapon for CoD than something I'd expect to find in A:CM. 

    Then again, I'd expect playable female marines too.
     :-\

    But of all the people Moosh is trying to contact,  Carrie might be relatively easy to find as well as contribute a statement on the issue.  Since she is a school teacher now I'd expect her to still be on summer break and therefore relatively available.
