Killer Instincts.

The story of Aliens vs. Predator 2 from MacPlay picks up not long after the events of Aliens. An unscrupulous scientist named Eisenberg makes an expedition to the planet Acheron to investigate the mysterious Derelict spacecraft. His team are attacked and wiped out, but not before Eisenberg discovers the whereabouts of an ancient Alien Hive on the world designated as LV-1201.

Eisenberg arrives on LV-1201 and establishes a biological research facility in order to study the Alien creatures. However, it is not long before the Xenomorphs rise up and break free - going on the rampage through the facility. A platoon of Colonial Marines is despatched to contain the chaos, rescue the survivors, and put a stop to Eisenberg's operations. But the Aliens are only one of their problems, for LV-1201 is also a favoured hunting ground for the Predators - who have long stalked Alien prey in the nearby volcanic plateau.

The convergence of the species is about commence once again for another terrifying battle!

Last Friday MacPlay announced that Aliens vs. Predator 2 was gold and would start shipping this week. Since then my email has been filled with requests for another desktop for this highly anticipated release. I was happy to oblige. In this week's wallpaper I wanted to capture the feel and look of the cover of the game. So, with the help of MacPlay's generous supply of art, I was able to create this week's feature. I simply entitled this selection, "Victorious", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)

Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.

Until then...
