Latest News

The upcoming MP DLC for Aliens: Colonial Marines, Bug Hunt, is available early to people who ordered the game through Wal-Mart and have redeemed the DLC code on XBL. Consequently, images and videos of the new content are appearing online.

The blurb reads: “Bug hunt is an objective based horde mode where accuracy and teamwork are key as you battle to survive 30 waves of increasingly challenging xenos and enemy Weyland-Yutani soldiers.

More cam footage can be found after the cut. Thanks to Leppard1236 for the videos.

  1. Would just be nice if sega and gearbox would just give an official release date for the DLC for this game, makes me laugh like its top secret lol

    So anyone out there get bug hunt yet that did not get the game at Walmart ?
  2. I apologise... I am just frustrated about this behavior of companies I used to have in high regard... DLCs are offensive, especially when they should have been on the retail game from day one! And given that I have sworn never to spend a dime on this game again (will see what the patch improves), it is double aggravating that they have this mode in a DLC and not included in the original MP content!

    So, I am just air venting, Hudson... guys... People have the right to spend the money as they please! I just am getting tired of this gaming industry, spewing sequel after sequel, incomplete game after incomplete game, with multiple patches, DLCs, etc...

    And fortunately Steam is a lot better now, because before, a few years ago, it was a nightmare!

    So, I come in peace...  :laugh: ;)
  3. My gamer tag on xbl is beb. I would love to be in on the bug hunt. If anyone wants help with Co op I am down with that. I would  love to be in a squad who still plays regularly 
  4. So, you're asking people to BUY the DLC?! SO that you have a buddy in the game?! Yes, the incoherence astounds me! SO, what's the game plan? People buy the DLC, spend even more money, or better, GIVING more money to Gearbox so that you can get to the last level of a MP SINGLE level?! What happened?! Just because you liked a Co-Op level, you change your mind entirely and ask people to spend some more money on a pathetically flawed game, a game you so verbally scorned?! Make up your mind, Hudson! Because make no mistake, no DLC redeems a game! Never did, never will! And if you believe a mere multiplayer map saves an entire game, then you boobytrap your own credibility! The only thing that could breathe life into this game would be a new story, new AI, new gameplay, etc! And make no mistake, Hudson, you're being naive if you don't think Gearbox left this DLC out of the Retail package ON PURPOSE, so that gullible Alien fans would be suckered back into spending more money on this! But to each, his own! I have made the mistake of buying this game, but I believe that saying:

    "FOOL ME ONCE, SHAME ON YOU... FOOL ME TWICE, SHAME ON ME!"

    Calm the hell down. People can do what they want and the opinion of one guy isn't going to change the face of the planet.

    It's certainly a shame to see the first DLC release contains a common complaint about the game but as previously mentioned, this content will have been prepared prior to the game's release - pretty sure it's a requirement these days. We'll see how the other modes do.
  5. Looking to play the new DLC when it comes out next week

    I need a team for sure. I wanna make it to wave 30. I made it to 14 on my own.

    14 is great! I think I've gotten to 9 on Tribute. What map? It will be nice to have more players next week.

    14, Tribute, Recruit. I feel the level difficulty thing is way out of whack. Even on recruit it can be insane. I made it to wave 4 on solider for the same level.

    Wave 18, alone, Tribute. WOW. I don't think it's POSSIBLE, at all, to advance without help. I unlocked the operations portion of LV-426. This game mode is going to easily breathe life into the game.

    Hope some of you guys are buying it.

    LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    BUTTHURT, MUCH?

    For one, it's not like Gearbox is gonna PROFIT off a couple dozen people from this forum buying one piece of DLC.

    For two, it's actually pretty fun.

    Three, you need a f**king Xanax.

    Also, WHERE DID I ASK PEOPLE TO BUY IT? I SAID, HOPE HOPE HOPE HOPE. You are being a friggin a*** over NOTHING. Yes, I have scorned the game, no, I am not taking back what I said. I just said this game mode is actually pretty good.
  6. Why why why...do I have to keep fighting stupid Weyland Yutani people!? WHY does Gearbox think that's fun!? If I want to shoot people I'll go turn on f**king Battlefield 3...not a damn Aliens game.
  7. Looking to play the new DLC when it comes out next week

    You hate this game so much go and sell it and don't pollute this site with your negative attitude

  11. The Borderlands games are incredible, but I can see what you mean. But it's the same premise as Activision IMO. I don't like CoD but I do like Guitar Hero and Prototype (and a few others I can't think of atm). Some publishers are fantastic, some are garbage, and some have good and bad titles. I mean, what else has Gearbox done besides Borderlands that they're known for? I'm not looking them up, just going off my knowledge.

    I think they did Brothers In Arms. I loved the first two...ACM should have had that combat dynamic/character development.

  13. Anyone who mentioned them wanting to fight WY-Mercs as enemy variety before release I am going to kick in the privates with cleats.


    Hell, I wouldn't mind a few new alien varieties instead of huuumunz.

    There was actually people who wanted that?
    I mean maybe for ONE level, sure, but there's too many human vs human levels. AVP2010 at least spaced out the combat synthetics enough for it to not be as annoying

  15. The moment I've read that we are fighting WY mercs and the deal was over for me. Sorry GBX you are complete douchebags. Sorry but its like that, you made me to call you what you are. The ALIENS fans want to fight ALIENS you know.. whats this human versus human fights in this game? Ok you screwed it up for the main game but did you ever read the feedback? Well I guess not because you end up as 100% morons with adding even more human enemies after everything said by the fans after the release. Yeah Ill get the DLC but when its for sale in Steam for 5$ or even less.
  16. I do think the maps are rather impressive (about as impressive as these poor damned graphics can get.) The Hadley's map (Tribute) is just great, and looks/feels exactly like Aliens. The amount of rooms and corridors there are, along with closeable (but not weldable) doors are truly a joy to fight through. So many little hallways and rooms, as you open your way to the Operations center and Medlab (where the Smartgun, Incinerator, etc.. are located) and the Aliens can pull the doors open behind you in truly scary fashion. There have been many times where I've backed myself into a corner and had Aliens swarming through vents, pulling open doors, and my tracker is going off all over the place. A lot of fun, honestly.

    Pathfinding also seems a little better, though they still all line up to jump at the same points. If you catch them right, you can waste a whole spawns worth of enemies as they crawl up the same hole in the floor or whatever. An improvement, but still far from perfect. Far from AvP 2010's Alien movement, that's for damned sure.

    I can't really make a call given this is $15. If it didn't have f**king WY, I'd say go for it if you already like the game.. but that does feel like a slap in the face, as many of you have said already. There's lots to keep people playing, but I'm still very much on the fence.
  17. Wow I'm impressed by their lofty level of douchbaggery and suckitude. But seriously, is there any one here who would want to sign a petition/raid the official forums for A:CM to see if we can try to change this? Even AvP 2010 had Alien horde mode with NO WY anybody.
  18. i really don't understand gearbox, one of the biggest complaints from fans was that you spend more time shooting mercs than you do aliens. so when the time comes to make a stand-out piece of dlc focused on said aliens what do they do?  I'm getting real tired of gearbox's S**t

    Gearbox already had the maps and AI all done way before the reviews came crashing down on their arses! People speculate that these maps, either for SP, MP (Co-Op included) seem to have been leftovers that didn't fit the game once Gearbox began downgrading the TimeGate version! These maps and modes were definitely already done before release! They just wanted to leave the best for last, furthering the treatment of 'let the suckers buy this crap and then leave the best MP modes and maps for the DLC to make them buy them, if they hadn't already with the Season Pass ploy we inflicted on their gullible arses!' >:(
