On the one hand, you have to respect the level of care that went into the attempt at bridging the first three wildly disparate "Alien" films in "Aliens: Colonial Marines." Down to the authentic pulse rifle sounds, attempts to name-check just about every location, character, and memorable visual from those films (with a cursory nod to "Prometheus" thrown in late in the game), Gearbox Software clearly wanted to evoke fans' nostalgia for this universe.

Now whether this is the kind of thing Sony should be chasing in the handheld space is up for debate, but the publisher isn't messing around: playing "Killzone: Mercenary" during a preview event last night offered some console-level gameplay and visuals.

Not a quickie port by a cut-rate studio, the FPS from Guerrilla Games uses the "Killzone 3" engine to deliver a surprisingly robust experience in both its multiplayer and single-player modes.
