Insteada going outside, I played this #3

Aliens, Commodore 64, Activision

Fly the drop ship (through hoops too fast to see) and land it, deploy marines, shoot aliens, thermal-melt a door while banging out xenomorphs, take Newt home, operate a power-loader against the Queen.

Everything Colonial Marines wasn't.

And this was pushed out not long after release of the film in a time when 3 or 4 people took on a game license - not a team of 20 programmers, 20 artists, 50 quality assurance, etc.

Yeah, Gearbox, you fucked up.
