The Aliens & AvP franchises has seen many games over the years, including Colonial Marines which is due out in February. However the first game holds a special place in many player’s hearts. I remember the game fondly as the first PC game I ever bought that required a dedicated graphics card, prompting me to make one of my first big purchases: a Voodoo 3 3,000. It was also one of the first games that I ever played online using the Mplayer service. As good as Colonial Marines looks, I am sure there are tons of people that would prefer to have a remake of the original game, and at least one person is (partially) making it happen.
The user “oldschool.Dave” of the CryDev.net forums posted a video of some of the work he has done to re-create the marines campaign from the original 1999 game. He has promised to post some more information later. For now, just check out this awesome video:
Outlast is a PC-only survival-horror game by indie developer Red Barrels. The talent at the company is undeniable, with employees who worked on Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed, and Uncharted, and this new trailer shows it.
The incredibly ambitious sci-fi action/constructing game StarForge has appeared on IndieGoGo to look for some funding. I first became aware of this game about 5 months ago, and it already looks like it has improved a ton in that short amount of time. Based on the awesome technology and gameplay ideas shown in their IndieGoGo trailer, I would say these guys deserve the chance to make this game a reality. Check it out below and see if you would be interested in backing them.
Congrats to the team at Unknown Worlds for releasing what is currently my favorite multiplayer game. Judging by the amount of full servers, it looks like the launch was a great success. Lets hope that sales stay strong throughout the new year. They really deserve it!
Yeah, this is looking pretty good…
