OTFPOTD: 1/8/09 - And Now For Something Completely Different...

The first concrete details for the upcoming tactical shooter Aliens: Colonial Marines have been released. I was a little concerned when this game was announced because I really didn't want them to mess it up. But after reading that article, I'm definitely cautiously optimistic.

The Positives:

  • Developed by Gearbox (Counter-Strike, Brothers in Arms series)
  • Looks like a good team of writers
  • Episodic game
  • Looks like the game creates good variety by having the player switch between the different members of the squad for each mission



The Negative:

  • Quick-Time Events. It looks like they're trying to handle the quick-time events in a reasonable way, but I'm generally not a fan of them.



And...for those of you who aren't into video games...umm...err...yeah, I got nuthin'.
