The good, the bad, the invariably ugly and the truly horrific
This week's Deal of the Week is a testament to mankind's conviction that if there is life on other planets, it probably wants to use your ribcage as an eggbox. It's also a testament to the untold woe that has been inflicted on H.R. Giger's greatest monstrosity over the years, though there are a few bright spots - Rebellion's Aliens vs Predator isn't half bad.
Nor is Earth Defense Force, in which lunatics don jetpacks in order to nuke giant ants, or Alien Hominid HD, an XBLA classic from Battleblock Theater developer The Behemoth. You may wish to steer clear of Lost Planet 3, whose "basic competence doesn't mask an almost complete reliance on recycled fetch quests", and Colonial Marines, which is notable for this (NSFW) gif and not much else. And you should definitely avoid the Star Trek game, which sets out "to boldly go where literally everybody in the entire action games industry has gone before, and do its absolute, smiling best to ensure that nobody ever wants to go there ever, ever again."
