Aliens: Colonial Marines packshot image
Aliens: Colonial Marines is an upcoming video game in development by Gearbox Software and is to be published by Sega for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360. The game is a first-person shooter based on the characters and creatures of the Alien franchise, particularly the film Aliens. It is the third Aliens title that Sega has produced: the first was Aliens vs. Predator in 2010, and the second was Aliens Infestation in 2011. Aliens: Colonial Marines is a first-person shooter which puts the player in the role of a United States Colonial Marine named Cpl. Christopher Winter. The player will have access to iconic weapons from the movie such as the flamethrower, pulse rifle, smartgun, shotgun, pistol, RPGs, and robotic sentry turrets. Players will also be able to use welding torches to seal doors and motion trackers to detect unseen enemies. Initially it was announced that the game would involve squad-based gameplay, allowing the player to issue orders to AI-controlled marines using context-sensitive commands. However, Gearbox later revealed that this feature was dropped to make gameplay more accessible. Aliens: Colonial Marines will have no HUD to provide the player with onscreen information.

Can someone please help me with this game, just installed it and from the first menu the game lags and is really unresponsive with 2-3FPS. Once the first cut scene starts the FPS goes up to 30FPS and then as soon as the level starts back to 2-3 FPS. I have tried it on the lowest settings with everything off and the highest. Please help as you can see my rig should be able to please this. EDIT - using windows 8

I don't get the plot of this game. Is this supposed to be some alternate ending where Ripley doesn't save Newt from the queen and Hicks gets of the aircraft and bishop flies to safety? But you can find Bishop's legs on one of the levels.I honestly don't get the campaign.
