Even though I’m a bit sick of first-person-shooters, I’m pretty excited for Aliens. It’s one of my favorite franchises and after playing Syndicate, I’m excited for the co-op features in this. This is one of the few games I’d be tempted to actually buy, although I probably will just rent it. I already put it in my rental queue. In fact, I haven’t bought any games since I signed up with the Blockbuster @Home service that my employer, DISH, started offering a few months back. It’s kind of like Netflix and Gamefly smashed into one. It’s great because with games being sixty dollars a piece these days I simply can’t buy 2-3 games a month.
