Aliens: Colonial Marines Launch at Ster-Kinekor

Posted on 07. Feb, 2013 by in Articles, Games, Images, News

Ster Kinekor invited us to the launch of the highly anticipated first-person shooter, Aliens: Colonial Marines developed by Gearbox in collaboration with publishing company SEGA.

The launch took place at Ster-Kinekor Office Park in Sandton on January 31st, 2013 where we were welcomed by smoke machines and dim lighting which really created the perfect atmosphere for Aliens: Colonial Marines. After a few snacks we made our way over to the Ster Kinekor Preview theatre were the Product/Brand Manager for Ster Kinekor Entertainment gave us an insightful overview on the Aliens movie series and how gearbox really focused on incorporating that unique feel of the movies we all know so well into the upcoming title, Aliens: Colonial Marines.

Jim Dyer from SEGA also joined us by taking us through a bit of the game, explaining some of the features and what we can expect from this thrilling title. The excitement didn’t stop there as ps3blog.co.za got to get some hands on with Aliens: Colonial Marines on the PS3 and let me tell you we were not disappointed. Gameplay was quite exciting, with aliens running through corridors and the ceiling to the chilling sound the xeno’s make in the background that we are all so familiar with in the Aliens movies. With only a small amount of gameplay, I must admit, I had quite a lot of fun.

We just want to send out a special thank you to the team at Ster Kinekor for making this event possible and inviting ps3blog.co.za. to join in on the action.

Be sure to pre-order Aliens: Colonial Marines to secure your copy of the game which will be releasing February 12th, 2013.

      Haha, well…I would just say playing the game was the best goodie! Since Freak_c was dying half the time and me saving his bum the whole time made me feel superior lol and then popping caps left, right and center into aliens was freakin spectacular!

        LOL Freak’s not ready for the corp :p . You sound like a good marine to have on one’s side though :) Did you play multiplayer or just co-op? You get to use the power-loader? What weapons did you start out with? I have too many questions. I must just wait for Tuesday. Really can’t wait. I’m a bit of an Aliens nut lol.

        Don’t forget I am awaiting your review of DS3 (with cookies) as well ;)

          Why thank you, lol! We played co-op which was really fun but I think online co-op will be much more enjoyable. We only played around with the shotgun which I prefer with those close encounters (aliens jumping at you from everywhere) and then with the standard M41A Pulse Rifle. We did not get to play around with the power-loader unfortunately… Its really worth getting excited about, it was a first for me playing aliens and it was really enjoyable… I don’t want to spoil it to much for you but being a Alien nut like you said; I think you are going to be happy with the outcome!

          Sweet! I look forward to you reading it!
