I picked up Aliens: Colonial Marines for ￡2.50 and I’m really enjoying it. I’m not really following the story so couldn’t say if it makes any sense but I haven’t found any of the issues that have been talked about, I think it catches the look and feel of the movies well. The multiplayer was a surprise too as I’v found it to be alot of fun, the tension of being a marine not knowing when or where the aliens are going to attack has been done well. It’s made me jump many a time.
It’s made me wonder if either the patch for it has corrected a lot of the bugs or whether my expectations for it were so low or the fact I paid so little for it are the reasons for me enjoying it, it’s nice to have a surprise though.
GC: There’s no patch that can fix what’s wrong with Colonial Marines. But lowered expectations and almost giving it away can certainly help to soften the blow.
RE: Mondeohitman and Splinter Cell: Blacklist, you piqued my interest in this game when you said that the single-player gave you the same feeling you felt with the older games. I had read that the developers tried to give both an old school stealth option or a gung-ho action option to each mission.
As regards the multiplayer, does this game have local two player co-op like Spies Vs. Mercs in the old games GC? If so, I feel a purchase coming on.

GC: The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions have split screen co-op for some modes, but not Spies Vs. Mercs.
RE: Funtimefitzy and Gatchaman. If I may wade into this debate: I would agree 100%, I have never been able to fathom the mindset of someone who will willingly cheat at an online game and have yet to find anyone that admits to such. What is the point of playing an online game for skill and cheating your way through it?
I have met a large number of cheaters online with FIFA, these particular idiots would freeze the game (no idea how) and wait for you to lose patience and quit or restart the game to start scoring goals… How anyone can be that desperate for a win is beyond me.
The mindset of such an individual will always confuse me, if you have no skill at the game then practice and get better, it proves nothing by cheating a score or a win. You see it all the time on the leaderboards of most multiplayers, with cheaters fixing the results which I just find bizarre.
If any cheater finds themselves banned from online or a particular game then I say good!
