Couple of new previews have been added to the main post. Also exciting news regarding E3 arriving soon. Stay tuned!  :)

Zach said they wanted to avoid spoilers for the E3 crowd, any word whether the demo will be made public after E3?

QuoteAliens: Colonial Marines utilizes an all new in-house, custom built rendering engine featuring dynamic real-time lighting and shadowing.

Maybe I'm understanding this wrong, but does this mean its not using the Unreal engine anymore or is this just using a customized lighting system in the Unreal engine?

First reviews to give positive feedback on the AI, respect.

Did Sega forget to hand out a memo to these guys telling them the planet is called LV-426  ::)

Also that crusher alien reminds me of this

this Crusher thingy is presumably a version of the one seen in the handheld CM video, surely? the big four leggedy beastie who leaps in at 1:24 here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHbjped9gM8#

Or am I barking up the wrong tree altogether?

I hope not, that thing looked ridiculous.

No that's a normal alien. previews say the Crusher has a head more similar to the queen.

But this doesn't really look like a normal alien.
The shape is actully not far from a Praetorian one:


But you know, I'm not telling the truth, just giving an opinion from what it looks like.
The body seems more massive also.
Anyway it's hard to tell with the footage which obviously have been modified in purpose.

The previews make the crusher sound like a beefy Praetorian that likes to ram things with its' crest and is nearly bulletproof.  That sounds okay to me, as long as it looks right, and at least it creates more tactical options (hopefully the game will let me SADAR the mother, not run through a door and hide :D.)

I hope we get more meat of the game soon, Ikarop... you're killing me.


Dowly... WUT DAT

Whoops sorry. I presumed you were talking about the alien that leaps at you in the A:CM gameplay. That could very well be a version of that alien (less cartoony I hope)
