"It has no relationship to the movies," we were told at a recent Sega event. Thank goodness: gamers would be outraged if the Aliens Vs Predator franchise were to be tainted by the recent films. Another good sign: Rebellion, developers of the fan-loved 1999 PC game, are at the helm of this current-...

The big, green gooey eggs containing Sega's long in development Aliens: Colonial Marines and Aliens RPG are going to hatch -- just not soon. When we asked why the games were absent from this year's E3, Sega replied, "Aliens vs. Predator will be the first to ship out of our triplet of Aliens titles;...

Last night's E3ified GameTrailers TV gave us our first glimpse at the gameplay featured in Aliens vs Predator, one of three (four?) Sega-published Aliens-based games currently in development.
