Sega have just released a teaser trailer of their upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines. If it's as half as intense as this clip then we're in for a treat.
Sega has posted the box art for Gearbox
Software's forthcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines, and it's just about
as Colonial, Marine-like, and Alieny as you might expect. Take a peek
