If you want to see a few seconds of obscured gameplay, type 66.194.172.6 into your address bar and type in FATHER as the hostname on the page you get.  The teaser is extended at the end to include some first-person sequences.  
 
But it doesn't show any Paul Reiser cameos, so it's pretty much pointless.

Yeah, but it's a dry-heat! 
 
My favourite movie becomes a game. Greatest day ever. 
 
...didn't they nuke the site fom orbit, though? You know, to be sure.

Its game of the year man. Its  game of the year!

@Branthog
While I agree with you completely about the Aliens universe, you should probably also realise that there are lots of things that get made that simply aren't going to appeal to everyone. 
 
I'm more than a little disappointed that there probably isn't a new Borderlands coming anytime soon
#55 Posted by Hilts (256 posts) -

Get on the ready line. Aaarrrrggghhhhh... absolutely bad ass!

Finally! Thank you GearBox.
I've been waiting for this game for ages, I guess I won't mind waiting another year ^^

#57 Posted by Hilts (256 posts) -

Dude! With Gear box at the helm you'd better get your games of the year pens out. How can they fail after working on some of the 'greats' such as Half-Life, Counterstrike, Halo, Borderlands, Dude Nukem Forever and Samba da Amigo. Smoking or Non-smoking?

One of the guys talking sounds like Sam Worthington

Pleaseplease please be a good game, you'll never have a better shot than gearbox doing it.

Hell to da Yeah! Hope this games good, for the sake of the franchise lasting! C'mon Gearbox!

Man, actually going back to the colony on LV-426, if done right, could be really really cool.  Color me excited. 

#62 Posted by hilts01 (5 posts) -

#63 Posted by MrNukNuk (14 posts) -

I just crapped myself.  I'm already scared.  Awesome!

#64 Posted by wolf_blitzer85 (5253 posts) -

Huh, so this could be really cool, or fucking awful.

#65 Posted by hilts01 (5 posts) -

All we know is that there's still no contact with the colony, and that a xenomorph may be involved.

#66 Posted by hilts01 (5 posts) -

Its a bug hunt!

Stop yer grinnin' and drop yer linen!

#68 Posted by Xpgamer7 (2379 posts) -

#72 Posted by yorro (558 posts) -

All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for? Breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the Corps! A day in the Marine Corps is like a day on the farm. Every meal's a banquet! Every paycheck a fortune! Every formation a parade! I LOVE the Corps! 

#73 Posted by Lind_L_Taylor (3963 posts) -

Fuck this.
 
I want an Aliens game where I can sell out my squad mates for
a fucking percentage.
 
Also, I would rather have seen Obsidian's Aliens RPG built instead
of another goddam shooter.  It'll probably be a COD/MW clone, but
instead of fuckin' zombies, you got fuckin' Aliens(c).

Were you trying to post as much ignorance possible in as few sentences possible, or was this an accident? 
 
Could you explain why you think a science fiction squad based shooter would be a clone of COD/MW?  Or is that something you say about every game that involves guns and shooting things?

Everything about this, especially the percentage part, is pure win haha

So you would have rather seen Obsidians buggy ass game with horrible mechanics then a Squad based shooter from one of the best FPS developer? Your insane. 
And since when is COD/MW a Zombie game?

I have faith in Gearbox.
At least with Gearbox you know the game will either be alright or damn awesome.

#85 Posted by Hilts (256 posts) -

#88 Posted by rocketboot (135 posts) -

Whoa... wasn't this the Left 4 Dead type thing that got put on hold "indefinitely". Gearbox saves the day again. These guys are the superheroes of videogames.

Everything is copying it. That's why.  But fuck it, I want Aliens the RPG, not
some fuckin' shooter.

@Lind_L_Taylor:  They are not mutually exclusive.  You can have both.

I believe Sega had both of them, then pulled the RPG.  So I
don't think it's gonna happen, mutually exclusive or not.

Fortunately for the rest of us, reality does not arrange itself based on what you think.
 
What Sega had was something they apparently didn't believe they could make profitable.

If I could alter reality, then we would have an Aliens RPG. I don't
know why that would be unfortunate for you.  Plus I have no idea
why my powers of altering reality & reality distortion have anything
to do with why I would prefer the Obsidian-built RPG over this
thing (which I'll probably end up playing anyway since I like 
Aliens, though if it flops like AvP did, I can get it on the cheap).

#97 Posted by bybeach (4771 posts) -

I could handle this as a shooter or rpg/action hybrid, though it seems the the former is happening. I really liked AvP2 (or at least part of it), got it in disk form still I think.

#98 Posted by maverick_76 (14 posts) -

Saw other videos online and I have to say that this is looking good, can't wait for this to come out!
