Aliens: Colonial Marines Writer Disowns Awful Trailer
So they added dubstep. Like, a lot of dubstep.
The voice-over dialog of the trailer, delivered (poorly) by some disembodied commanding officer, highlights the disconnect. He talks about the Colonial Marines’ potential badassery, how they’re all too crazy and awesome to just bail on this LV-426 mission that will almost certainly mean their deaths, and how they have All The Guns and so the game is going to be kick ass.
That’s right. Hudson’s speech about being ultimate bad-asses is what makes that movie compelling. Not the fact that the ultimate bad-asses are immediately gutted.
Anyway, it seems the trailer is a bit of marketing and maybe not indicative of the final game, because writer Mikey Neumann took to Twitter to disown it (likely after receiving much scorn and backlash). The tweet has since been removed, but Rock Paper Shotgun nabbed a screenshot of it (thanks, guys!):
Check out the trailer below. Are you guys as worried about this game as I am, as an Aliens fan?
Anyway, you can download the trailer here.
