The remake of the 1990 classic, which will be a downloadable-only effort for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and PC, is being handled by Sega Studios Australia who will be working alongside [...]
A complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority by Reddit user subpardave has resulted in SEGA Europe agreeing to add disclaimers to trailers for the poorly received Aliens: Colonial Marines, making the acknowledgement that they are not accurate and do not reflect the final game. In a e-mail to the ASA, the disgruntled user placed emphasis on what he outlined as the “absurd” difference between the “in-game” and “playthrough” footage that SEGA utilised to market the [...]

Sega have released a multiplayer trailer for their forthcoming xenomorph set-piece, blast-fest Aliens: Colonial Marines. The trailer focuses on the various tactics that can be employed in the various multiplayer game modes and can’t help but think that had I been aware of even a fraction of them, I likely would have fared much better than I did when I went hands-0n with multiplayer portion of the Gearbox Software developed title [...]
Project X Zone, a 3DS strategy RPG thing that contains a veritable smorgasbord of notable ladies and gents from various Sega, Capcom and Namco Bandai franchises, is due to make a splash in North America and Europe this Summer after a successful Japanese release late last year. The game itself is one great big mash-up in which owing to a balls-up in the space-time continuum (the usual then), characters from these different worlds are able [...]

Heads-up folks, those wizards over at Platinum Games have released the international launch trailer for Anarchy Reigns; their ultra-violent multiplayer brawler which contains characters from their IP history such as Jack from MadWorld and Bayonetta from, well, Bayonetta. Anyway, the game has been getting some rave reviews lately and its being sold at a budget price point too (just £20), so there really is no excuse not to get stuck in really. [...]
SEGA and Gearbox Software have released a story trailer for next year’s licensed FPS affair, Aliens: Colonial Marines. Essentially, it serves only as a primer to the events of the game proper; showing how this latest batch of smart gun wielding unfortunates ended up on the USS Sulaco. As you might expect, it doesn’t show a great wealth of gameplay, but it does show off the in-game cut-scenes and of course, the [...]

Between the two trailers, we get an extended glimpse at the Adventurer, Knight and Time Traveler, The Hillbilly, Scientist, Monk and The Twins. The game continues to look rather brilliant too and very early contender for downloadable game of 2013. Yep, that’s right. Feel the hyperbole rushing into you. See what we mean after the break.
