In the video below, Blair Herter gets the latest from Randy Pitchford on Aliens: Colonial Marines, checking out the Marines vs. Xenomorph multiplayer "Escape" mode and learning that the fates of Hudson and Burke might continue outside the movies.
"The marines have an objective. They're in one place and they need to be somewhere else," Pitchford explains, "It's all about going from Point A to Point B, which is kind of the opposite from the 'hunker down and survive' approach."
The aliens of Aliens: Colonial Marines, of course, just want to kill.
I've played the escape mode from Aliens, and I pronounce it dope. Check out my Aliens: Colonial Marines preview.
