I’m a big nerd for the Aliens universe and this game looks to be the pinnacle of what I’d want in an Aliens game. It appears to be set between Aliens and Alien3, and follows the marines as they try to figure out what the hell happened on LV-426. It seems as wonky about the continuity and obscure details in the films I latch on to, so this looks like it’ll be right up my alley.
And I’ll be honest: this is half the reason I bought my WiiU. Seriously. Half.
You can preorder it on Amazon for PS3, PC, and XBox and it’s set to release February 12, 2013. There’s no release date for the WiiU yet, or even the ability to preorder it, which makes me sad.
