Gearbox Software President Randy Pitchford has let loose some gameplay footage for his studios upcoming Aliens: Colonial Marines, and it looks to do the franchise justice.  We all know looks aren’t everything, but I definitely feel better about this game after watching the near 10 minutes of campaign footage, which you can check out below.  This particular Aliens game will take place after the events of the movie Aliens, and gamers will find themselves battling it out on the same f*cked up planet that Ripley and crew nuked at the end of the film.

I really think Gearbox has done a great job at capturing the look and feel of the Aliens universe, and more importantly, they’ve got the amazing machine gun sound from the movie down pat (best machine gun report of all-time by the way).  Take a look and see what I mean.  Do you think Colonial Marines can do the Aliens franchise justice, or will it be a goat turd like AVP?  You’ve been wondering if Red Jacket could make a gun that sounds like it’s from Aliens…
