Aliens: Colonial Marines Dev Diary Focuses on Xeno's vs. Marines

The new developer diary from Gearbox Software for Aliens: Colonial Marines has talk of Xenomorph types, marine weaponry, and about 8 shots of men dramatically putting on their eyeglasses.
It looks as though Gearbox has spent a lot of effort getting the semblances from the movie just right, from detailing the reload of the Pulse Rifle to imagineering the HUD of the Smart Gun eyepiece.
I still have my reservations however, most of them having to do with the tone and tenor of the interactions with the xenomorphs, and the heavy focus on multiplayer, but it's still good to see Gearbox paying attention to the details.
