Sounds like Bugs to me.

Will we get Skinnies?

I hope the game is better than the movie.

Can someone post a link to the teaser? I don't use facebook myself so I have no access to the teaser. Regardless, some kind of wargame set kn the Starship Troopers universe could be a lot of fun!

Are you serious? The first movie was awesome.

Funny this announcement should come now. Was recently going through my old cd game collection and came across the ST rts game, which was actually quite good...

Paul Verhoeven was genius before his time in the way he could shape fascist worlds.

The CGI hasnít aged well but still a fun movie that was robbed by lack of power suits.
Insert witty comment here.

One of my favorite movies. 

It's so much fun to watch.

I liked Roughnecks- the animation series. It was pretty good as far as how it dealt with the Bugs and the Skinnies.

LOL....actually, yes.  I thought it was a ridiculous, poorly acted train-wreck ranking right down there with the first Dune movie with Sting.  But who knows, maybe it will make for a compelling game.

But it had Denise Richards (back when she was great looking) and a top-less Dina Meyer!

And I, for one, kinda liked the first Dune movie. It was interesting and did some things better than the mini-series (and it's mini-series-sequel).

I don't understand, you're just listing all the reasons why it is the greatest piece of entertainment in history.

Admittedly, I started off going, "what the hell!?!" when I saw the movie but time and "wisdom," has shifted my POV to where I kinda/sorta get where the director was coming from so I can enjoy the movie moreso nowadays.

That aside, a nifty computer game based upon the Troopers' milieu could be pretty sweet.  Reminds me, I've got a copy of the Avalon Hill game somewhere...

What were you expecting? The Godfather? Casablanca? It sounds like your expectations were way too high.
