Michael Biehn Talks Aliens: Colonial Marines

Actor Michael Biehn has recently commented on Aliens: Colonial Marines in an audio interview with Xbox Live’s Major Nelson about his involvement in Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. The Aliens actor, who reprised his role of Corporal Dwayne Hicks for the poorly received Aliens videogame, explained:

I did an Aliens game last year that nobody really talked about very much, I never really heard too much about it.

I heard when it came out. Nobody ever came up to me afterwards and said ‘Oh, that Aliens game was really good’, or whatever.

When asked if he would like to work on more videogames, he replied:

“I don’t want to spread myself out to other games that don’t have the passion… You know, like the Aliens game.”

Additionally, Dark Star’s John Carpenter, has also commented on the game for Game Informer:

“It’s all about money. It’s not that something is being mistreated, it’s just another marketing issue. They are trying to get you to buy the game, which I stupidly did.”

    So...since this interview is 99.9% about Far Cry 3 BD, it is my duty to say that the game is awesome and everyone who enjoyed 80s action/sci-fi needs to play it. For God's sake you come in gun's blazing to a Predator reference.

    And The Thing on PS2/Xbox is one of the benchmarks for licensed games I think. It built on a story and also tried to make a completely new gameplay mechanic, which worked SOMETIMES and was cooler in 2002 than it is now, but it's still a fun game for the most part, and it is fairly long and substantial. I mean, even without it being The Thing related, I think it's a pretty f**king good survival horror game for the time. I'd love to see an HD remake on XBLA or something.

    The Thing videogame for the PS2 was simply awesome and the second part got canned but there are videos of the gameplay and concept art in Youtube. They should remake the sequel of the first game with Carpenter supervising it.

    And regarding ACM, the ironic thing is that the game actually sold well. I haven't seen used copies of the game and retailers tell me used copies of it are difficult to find.
    The Thing game is a really, really cool idea that just couldn't fulfill its own promises due to technology limitations at the time. The first 1/3 or so of the game totally rules, and when the game introduces human enemies the game completely nosedives and never recovers.

    I totally agree that the sequel idea looked completely kickass and I'd love it if that project got "thawed out" and completed.

    ummm micheal u havent realized that even your character's story was shit when u said his lines??
    He probably did but a paycheck is a paycheck.
    Or he could've just been sold on the original concept art, the former Battlestar Galactica writers, and the general enthusiasm for the project from GBX...just like the fans.  I wouldn't be surprised if he signed the contract when A:CM was being proposed to everyone as an entirely different game than the one that eventually came out.
