Gameplayer has a lengthy preview of the upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines game. There will be parts of the game where you basically need to fortify your position and defend from aliens. The developers are also aware of how the aliens should be portrayed; i.e. “virtually indestructible beings” like in the first movie. The preview also mentions a new place they saw from some concept art: “shanty mining town on a barely terraformed planet”.

“A second major gameplay approach is through the use of what Gearbox are calling ‘Make a Stand’ situations. These are particular moments in the game where you will need to fortify your position against incoming aliens. Your preparation time will be short, but there are a lot of interesting decisions to be made that add a tactical layer to each encounter. Creative Director, Brian Martel, is enthusiastic about this mechanic. “It’s the tools that we have; the ability to move things around, to put turrets there, to have the motion tracker so that you can know when they’re coming and from where.”

There’s a couple of renders of an APC and Dropship in the pictures that I’ve not seen before too. Thanks to Space Voyager for the news.

This review sounds very similar to one I read in an Xbox magazine about a month ago so it ain't new.

The game sounds awesome.  The ONLY bad thing I've heard about it are those stupid action scripts things?  This isn't f-ing Dragon's Lair!     ::)
