Yup, this deserves my money.

This looks surprisingly fun.

Posted by BeachThunder

:o This actually looks good; kind of makes me think of Duke 2.

Finally, a game like Alien 3 for SNES! 
 
Hope it's a fun game, though I'm surprised it's not for 3DS.

Accidentally hit play before entering a birthdate.

Reminded just how awesome this site is.

XD at an age gate for a T video. High five to Giant Bomb for it working anyway.

This looks rad. I'm for sure going to buy this "let's rockkkkkkk"

I love Aliens. But, dude, that movie came out 22 years ago!

WayForward has make some very good side-scrollers, like Contra 4 or, believe it or not, the DS version of Thor: God of Thunder, which is many times better than the generic console counterpart. They have an excellent pedigree in this kind of games, so I'm hoping here this one doesn't let down.

Between this and the new Bloodrayne game it's clear that Way Forward should be the people making new Castlevania and Metroid games. Glad they're getting the chance to, even if its under different names.

Everything I've read about this makes it sound like a great Metroidvania. There's even a perma-death aspect, where you recruit marines, and they can be killed permanently via face-hugging, little-mouth-to-throat, and kidnapping.

One shot alien kill, followed by "DEADLIEST KILLERS IN THE GALAXY" quote. Heh. Well just hand that gun out to people and it'll be a minor nuisance, like swatting a fly.
 
The nerfed nature of aliens in alien games does sorta take the point out of them really.

Faces.
Will.
Be Hugged.
 
So hugged.
 
Also, I'm really glad this style of game has had a resurgence in the last few years -- despite being a lifelong gamer both Symphony of the Night and Super Metroid passed me by. Alien(s) is one of my favourite franchises. This look leagues better than Colonial Marines.
 
Also also, this is what I want from the next Dead Space offshoot.

Yeah, that Thor game is totally alright for the DS. 
 
This seems fun, but like 3 years too late to be relevant for the DS. Would've been a solid tie-in for that horrid Aliens vs Predator: Requiem movie, even more so than the actual AvP: R game. Imagine if the graphics were beefed up for the 3DS...

That looks good, considering it only looks like a great GBA game and not quite DS. That doesn't matter though as long as it's great. I'm probably not going to get it though, even though I'm a huge Alien/Aliens fan. I just hope that the new Alien: Colonial Marines game is good. I think it looks good right now, but in the end I'd be surprised if it actually turns out that way. I hope I'm wrong.

Posted by CookieMonster

Looks okay. Graphics are a bit shitty though.

Posted by Robin_Gr
Looks cool. I played loads of Alien 3 on the Snes, and that wasn't even good. Hopefully with this not being a direct tie-in it will be able to stand on its own as a legitimately good game beyond its license.
Posted by Zippedbinders

Looking forward to it, I enjoy WayForward games. 

Posted by KillyDarko

Man, this really reminds me of that old Alien 3 game for the Master System...! :D

Partial nudity? What? The aliens aren't wearing anything!

Posted by chickdigger802

playing some shantae right now. Ready for more wayforward goodies.

Posted by FoxMulder

Glad to see DS games still coming out. I am probably never gonna buy a 3DS until they stop making DS games or start making essential 3DS games like new Castlevania, Metroid, Advance Wars and 2D Mario.

Honestly as long as the game is good I don't care when the movie came out.

Posted by mlarrabee

This looks fantastic! I wish it was coming to PC. Abuse was great, and I'd love another!

Posted by GS_Dan

Are those GBA sprites?

Posted by jonnyboy

My favourite part was the close enough, but yet legally far enough away  version of 'In the house, in a heartbeat' from the 28 Days Later soundtrack.

Face hugging AND mild nudity? Oh dear

Posted by MeatSim

I don't wanna hug that.
