If it feels like Aliens: Colonial Marines has been in production for yeaaaars, that's because it has. Remember when it was announced as a squad shooter in which you could direct AI teammates a la Star Wars: Republic Commando? Perhaps not. It was way back in 2008, and the pitch has changed somewhat since then. Still, it's an excuse to go toe to toe with the most memorable monsters in movie history, which is all the more reason to hope it'll turn out okay. Aliens has always struggled a little to make it in videogame form, which is odd given how videogamey the second film was.
