Aliens: Colonial Marines and Star Trek videogames are on the way

Stop yer grinnin' and drop yer linen. It's been a quarter-century since James Cameron sent space jarheads to contend with the xenomorph menace, and now current game console owners will (finally) get to join a squad in ALIENS: COLONIAL MARINES.

The first-person shooter has been in the works since 2006, and updates on the project have been scarce since last year. But developer Gearbox (Borderlands, Duke Nukem Forever, various Half-Life expansions) has officially announced that the game will arrive in Spring 2012, and provided the teaser trailer below.

Set shortly after the sci-fi classic ALIENS, the squad-based game has players in a group of Colonial Marines sent to investigate the drifting USS Sulaco and search for the team previously dispatched to LV-426.

Meanwhile, Paramount is bringing JJ Abrams' variation of STAR TREK to consoles with a new game in 2012, from developer Digital Extremes (Unreal Tournament, Bioshock 2). It's based on an original story by God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk, but will also have the involvement of the whole TREK movie gang (Abrams, Orci, Kurtzman, Lindelof).

STAR TREK: THE GAME follows Kirk and Spock as they "learn to work as a team in the process of trying to thwart the efforts of an infamous enemy race from conquering the galaxy."

The studio claims it will "enable players, for the first time ever, to assume the roles of Kirk and Spock." I guess that means they're specifically referring to the Pine/Quinto versions, or they're just deciding to ignore the old Interplay point-and-click TREK game.

Expect to hear more about both games after next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo.

That security cam or whatever said Hadley's Hope. That's the terraforming colony on LV-426. The same place that got nuked at the end of Aliens.

Are they suggesting that something survived that big ass explosion? Because that's a bit far fetched.

I Miss The Original.

Why didn't they ever port the original Aliens Vs. Predator PC game over to consoles? That game was great and way better than the version released a couple of years ago. I haven't played any Star Trek games so I can't say if it's a good or bad thing but I'm glad to hear that one is coming. Is that Star Trek Online game still around?

BSG?

First thing that came to mind when I heard the word "colonial" was Battlestar Galactica. I don't know, are people still into the Alien movie series? Let's just hope there isn't a remake of the original in the works... As for the gameplay, as long as it gets players addicted and away from Farmville I'm all for it!
