This Aliens: Colonial Marines Trailer Has the Best Line in Any Trailer, Ever

This Aliens: Colonial Marines Trailer Has the Best Line in Any Trailer, EverIf you’re easily offended, you probably shouldn’t watch this trailer. There isn’t anything graphic in it, per se, but if swearing hurt your ears, you won’t like it. It’s not like the Aliens: Colonial Marines trailer is littered with curse words, but it does contain some that could make you feel uncomfortable.

Now that’s out of the way, ya know what I love? – Swear words! When used in a manner that adds some gravity to proceedings, there’s nothing like a good f-bomb. For instance, my favourite quote from the trailer below is;

“We’re fighting for the title of baddest motherfuckers in the galaxy, and that’s a battle I intend to win!”

You couldn’t get any more action movie cheesier than that, and I love it! Check out the trailer for Gearbox and SEGA’s upcoming title, below.

Aliens: Colonial Marines will be released on February 12 for Windows PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii U

    Lol, great trailer. Loved it. Can’t wait to get my copy (PC, of course) through my door!

    the narrator’s voice acting is crappy…kind of ruins the good writing. sounds like he’s TRYING to sound like a marine, instead of SOUNDING like a marine. i don’t mind a little cheese with my wine, but not the whole bottle.

    The footage looks ace, but the voiceover is a bit “BRO!!! BRO!!!” isn’t it?

    Also, I actually guffawed at “I don’t mind a little cheese with my wine, but not the whole bottle” :-D

    This will probably be the first time I’ve disagreed with God is a Geek, please don’t take this as a criticism of this site – I love what I’ve seen so far. I’m just disagreeing with your view of this game.

    I’ve read some pretty negative previews so far, mainly from other sites like Rock Paper Shotgun, which may have already biased me against this game, but that trailer just plummeted my opinion to zero. I think if you’re going to go for cartoony or stylised graphics, you should make up for it with gameplay. We see nothing new in this trailer. Some may argue the Aliens license is all they need, but we’ve seen so many times that having a great license does not make a good game. Furthermore, instead of making an original game in that universe, they’ve thrown in bits and bobs from the films – Bishop, the Sulaco, the heavy lifter, the drop jet, and inexplicably the base itself (which we saw blow up at the end of Aliens).

    Last but by no means least, I love cheesy marines as much as the next man. Aliens did that really well – I still count the scene at the start with the camaraderie and the banter as one of my favourites out of any film – but this didn’t approach that level, for me. You could actually cut out the script from this trailer and apply it to Gears of War or any action game. There’s nothing that elevates it above the rest, and for me, as a fan of the great writing from the first three Alien films. that’s really bad.

    It wouldn’t do for us to like all the same things. How boring would that be?! I don’t think any of us would take someone’s opinion as criticism. Not at all, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and everyone’s opinion is right; for them.

    That being said, if you sat me down and asked me why I’m excited for Aliens: Colonial Marines I wouldn’t be able to tell you, maybe it’s because I’ve always been a fan of the Aliens Vs. Predator games and I’m blinded to the fact that this isn’t one of them, maybe it’s even as simple as the fact that this is the first game since moving half way across the country that I’ve actually been able to afford on the day it comes out. Who knows!

    I think we’re hoping it’s good. When you think about it, an Aliens game SHOULD be great. It has everything it needs, in theory!

    We actually did have a chance to play this, at quite an early stage and it seemed decent. We had another chance recently, so it’s not like SEGA have been shy of showing it off.

    Oh and there’s an interview with the design director coming up too.

    I must admit, I’ve not played it yet, I just *want* it to be good. The idea of the radar bleeping on the Wii U version…that SHOULD work amazingly. Let’s hope so.

    Edit: And what Martin said. Different opinions are wonderful. We don’t always agree here on the site ;-)

    Edit #2: RPS are an excellent site, imho. I’ve not seen their preview though, may go check it out.

    I’m really excited for this game, because I love Aliens, and shooters, and Gearbox. But I’m definitely of the school of thought that Aliens games have always been let-downs, and I’ll judge this when it comes.

    I dont even think the writers of Aliens knew how quotable that film would be. Its cool is effortless. I’ve seen a few things in these trailers that seem a little bit try-hard. Looking forward to seeing how it all plays out.

    By the way, just seen Mikey Neumann (Gearbox writer) say that the dialog in the trailer is NOT from in the game and he didn’t write it.

    Hmmm…interesting.

    Indeed! I’ll try not to let this affect whether I get the game or not. God is a Geek’s review will definitely be more of a factor!
