    Years ago, Sega was in the market for two games based off the famous Alien franchise. One was a FPS game, that has become the recent clusterfuck known as Aliens: Colonial Marines. However, the other was a RPG, made by Obsidian, best known for Knights of the Old Republic II, Fallout: New Vegas, and more recently, the upcoming South Park RPG, The Stick of Truth.

    While the video isn't anything fancy, it shows some basic animations for the game in a rough state. Gameplay footage this is not. However, the video does give the game the title of Aliens: Crucible.

    It's nothing amazing but give it a look to see what could've been.

    Here's some info about the game as well as some gameplay footage.



    Don't mind the live action segment in the beginning, gameplay starts at 0:37.

    Isn't Obsidian supposed to be working on Project Enternity? If a studio needs to raise money from fans to make a game, what the hell are they doing starting other projects?

    The game was being made, but Sega ultimately scrapped it in favor of Colonial Marines awhile ago.

    Sega has been dun goofing a lot on their business decisions since the Sega CD days, so this is kinda expected from them.

    So when I see that aliens commercial on TV and think it looks like a game that was made in 2002, I'm not just being picky?

    Some of the video's comparing the preview footage to what was actually released, it's borderline false advertising... The previews looked like a decent game the actual released game? Looks like something from 2007 tops...

    Then I hear the AI is pretty busted and in some levels you don't even have to shoot the aliens you can walk right past them.



    The actual game looks a lot worse than this.

    Edit: I found this review for the game!!!!

    nope that's pretty much what it looks like (even on pc) and it plays even worse. as for walking past the aliens it's true; they're all mind fucked stupid and your idiot ai team mates just love to say stupid shit like ready, aim, fire when there is nothing there...

    the whole game was rush fucked
