Final Piece of Aliens Colonial Marines DLC is Now AvailableAndrew Gaskill

It's a shame the game isn't very good, because "Stasis Interrupted" sounds like it could have told an interesting story. From the XBLM description:

Colonial Marines did features a season pass and to date we've only seen a little bit of content come out of that, namely a co-op survival mode a few months back. Our review was harsh, but fair. Co-Op makes the game a bit more enjoyable. And the game has received a steady stream of patches and enhancements, especially on PC. Perhaps the recently leaked Stasis Interrupted pack will breath new life into the 4 player co-op shooter.

In news that probably shocks no one, Sega has officially confirmed that the Wii U version of Aliens: Colonial Marines is no longer in development. The latest Aliens game, developed by Gearbox and published by Sega, came out mid February of this year on PS3, 360, and PC; however, the promised Wii U version was conspicuously absent from Q1 2013. There was no comment by Sega or Demiurge (the developer in charge of the Wii U port) then about its absence, leading to speculation about the port's cancellation. Today it's official: there's no plans of it ever happening.

There’s no doubt that most of us can share in the disappointment that is Aliens: Colonial Marines. However, Gearbox IS trying to correct their mistakes by fixing the errors that have been plaguing all versions of the game since launch. A recent update to the console versions may give players a reason to give the game a second chance.

Aliens: Colonial Marines released a new objective-based cooperative mode yesterday. "Bug Hunt" is a survival mode which allows four players to team up and fight against 30 waves of xenomorphs and enemy soldiers. There are three new maps, dubbed Broadside, Mercenary, and Tribute. Players can use the money they earn from kills to capture beacon points and to buy better weapons and ammo.

Aliens: Colonial Marines has received a massive patch on the PC bringing it up to date AND past the recently patched console version of the game.  The four player co-op shooter was released to mostly negative reviews due to buggy gameplay, poor AI, and unimpressive visuals.  While we gave the game a 3 out of 5 for co-op play, it definitely wasn't worth the $60.  It's a good thing it's down to $35 already.

Aliens: Colonial Marines may not have lived up to its potential, but Gearbox isn't sitting back with the title. Updates continue to flow for all version of the game fixing issues and enhancing the game as we work towards the first official piece of DLC.  The Xbox 360 version of the game has been updated today with a bunch of these corrections, while the PS3 and PC version will be updated shortly with similar fixes.

There is a bit of a problem regarding save data for Aliens: Colonial Marines. The problem in question is a nasty bug that is completely wiping out save files for the Xbox 360 version of the game. Sega recognizes that a "small number of users" are experiencing the bug, which is wiping out their save data and resetting their progress.

Aliens: Colonial Marines launched today and the reviews are not so good. Hey, at least we get to see one of the most quoted lines of all time used in almost every single review! Brilliant. But since A:CM doesn't seem to be causing eye cancer, I'm sure some fans are still going to enjoy it. Maybe. I guess I'm not so sure about that. Somebody, somewhere, might like it. I don't know. My only experience with the game was from a short session at E3 that was actually quite enjoyable, but not everyone is a sexual Tyrannosaurus, like me. Apparently I played the best part.
