New Video Game Releases For The Week Of 2/12/2013: Games To Train Your Brain And Hug Your Face

“Prometheus” detractors will have a new target for their “Alien” franchise ire thanks to “Aliens: Colonial Marines,” but beyond that, this is a slow week for new games. Still, if you’re willing to get away from the AAA and check out some smaller titles, the 3DS and PC have some curiosities on offer.

Check them out after the jump.

Title:Aliens: Colonial Marines” (review)
Platform(s): PC, Xbox 360, PS3

If the development cycle on “Colonial Marines” were shorter than what it actually was, I’d call it a cynical cash grab on the parts of SEGA, developer Gearbox, and Twentieth Century Fox. But this game has been in some kind of active development for years and someone, somewhere cared about it. But maybe, after so long with the same game, tunnel vision set in and the wretched AI, stiff enemy animations, and general air of lifelessness about the whole thing is evident early on and none of those complaints ever let up.

On the plus side, it does have the voices of Lance Henricksen and Michael Biehn, so if you want to know what those two have been up to, well, there’s that.
