Aliens: Colonial Marines was released last week and… it’s pretty bad. No really, it’s bad, and not in the good ‘Who’s bad!?’ kind of way. Anyway, it’s also a game that’s full of hidden Easter Eggs, including a reference to the Special Stages from Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles.
During chapter 6 ‘For Bella’ you enter a large building and have to run past a room with a sentry gun on the left hand side. If you then enter this room and disable the turret, you can now safely check out the lockers. Inside one of the lockers are 3 small balls, one red, one blue and one textured exactly like ground you run on during these stages.
Nothing happens once you find this, just a small hidden extra added to the game. Please, do not buy this game just to see this for yourself, it really isn’t that good.
Thanks to… I can’t believe I’m typing this… Barack Obama on SSMB for bringing this to my attention.
