Quit your grinnin’ and drop your linen, folks.
Take a good hard gander at Gearbox’s Collector’s Edition of Aliens: Colonial Marines. The mighty hammer of fan service is set to crush you like a bug by doling out the following laundry list of Weyland-Yutani approved goodies:
- A copy of Aliens: Colonial Marines in all of its belated glory.
- In-game DLC content including multiplayer weapons ripped from the ‘86 film and an extra game mode dubbed “USCM Academy Firing Range.”
- 8" Power Loader figure.
- A 22 page Aliens comic published by your xeno pals at Dark Horse.
- Three exclusive fabric USCM patches because an angel dies every time a collector’s edition skimps on patches.
- Wrap Around Display (to make your Power Loader feel at home).
- USCM Dossier
Absolutely badass. If Colonial Marines has been off your radar then shame on your very soul. James Cameron’s Aliens has remained atop my favorite movie list for years now. Alien as a franchise has seen the short end of the stick in video game form for longer than that. Cameron’s opus, though, deserves a game worthy of the branding and I truly, sincerely hope Gearbox has pulled out all the stops.
