Mouth still adrip with disappointment after sampling the dispiriting stew that is Alien: Colonial Marines? Here, this should wash away a little of the sourness - an animator's reel showcasing a few bits and bobs from Obsidian's Aliens: Crucible, an RPG that swaps out rat-punching for chest-bursting.

Pretty much. Sega pulled the plug because they though Gearbox had a more mass market game.
