I only just had my first Alien encounter but god damn I’m impressed. It doesn’t just rehash old themes in a lazy way. You can tell that great care was put into this story right down to the details. And the fact that its all happening at a space station run by a bootleg Weyland Yutani on the verge of collapsing is SUCH a brilliant detail. It’s not THE company. It’s A company. Fuck yeah.
"The closest you get to Earth is in “Aliens” at the beginning, on the space station. And poor Burke, Paul Reiser, he’s wearing that absurd collar. It just says FUTURE and it doesn’t work."
Sigourney, killin ‘em in this Galaxy Quest Oral History. It rules. And this is the second time Burke’s stupid-ass collar has been referenced on this site. BOOM. WE THOROUGH IN THIS BITCH…ah i cant find it to link to it. You do it.
Is it me, or do the graphics in Isolation look almost identical to the graphics of Colonial Marines when it wasn't out and they were just releasing stills and small clips?
Fuck that would be a trip…like my school just re-purposing old hamburgers two days after hamburger day and calling it “salsbury steak”. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if thats how this all ends up.
I'm on the edge about this myself, but what would you think if they made an Alien game an interactive, choice-based story, like Heavy Rain, Walking Dead game, and The Wolf Among Us?
At this point, the first-person shooter model has completely shit the bed so many times that ANY other format would be a breath of shitless fresh air. That’s why this one is intriguing…because its an all new format in this context.
I think some enterprising indie game designer should make a metal slug style Aliens side-scroller, or shit…just give us the opportunity to buy the mack DADDY of all the Aliens games: Alien Vs. Predator Arcade. Fuck that game ruled.
Well lets review what we know so far, this is a graphical game, it has been in development for 3 years, they are really trying to tap into what we want, its survival horror, based on movie #1, no bullets flying/ giant explosions, and they can't fuck it up, not again... right
Look, I’m always ready to believe. But, what are we… like 3 for 20 on the ratio of GOOD alien games to shitty ones??? The odds are against us.
