Mouth still adrip with disappointment after sampling the dispiriting stew that is Alien: Colonial Marines? Here, this should wash away a little of the sourness - an animator's reel showcasing a few bits and bobs from Obsidian's Aliens: Crucible, an RPG that swaps out rat-punching for chest-bursting. And will never see release. OK, perhaps the video won't raise your spirits quite so much after all.

I want to start an online poll so bad, but I know they're useless. If not for just letting Sega know how much they screwed up.

I was really excited for this game when they announced it (2006?). Looking back now though I can't be too upset about its cancellation because we ended up with New Vegas instead.

Despite being shit Colonial Marines is selling extremely well and I highly doubt that an Obsidian RPG no matter what quality would have achieved the same.
It also wouldn't have taken six years to release and would have been much cheaper for Sega.

Day ruined, thanks SEGA. Now only thing left to do for SEGA is to tell me they cancelled Shenmue 3

Selling well? What? We have no info to base that on, and no being number one on Steam and the UK doesn't mean anything.

And it's a guarantee that the toxic word of mouth around this game will definitely curb it's lifetime sales.

These Alien animations might be better than what we got in CM.
No might about it, they look leagues ahead of the poor animations in Colonial Marines. The Aliens also look better, which just shows how poorly done Colonial Marines is.
