Default Alien: Isolation

http://m.ca.ign.com/articles/2014/01...lien-game-ever Looks pretty cool. Kind of like Amnesia in space. It's a smart move to make a horror game after AvP and Colonial Marines got such negative feedback. Though i don't think Creative has ever made a first person game before, so hopfully they can deliver.

I'm actually really liking the look of this.
I love sci-fi, aliens and stuff like that so if this is a properly done horror game I might really enjoy it!

So glad they're taking a survival horror route rather than a well-worn action angle.

(AKA Why Alien is an infinitely superior movie to Aliens)

Meh.

I'll wait and see what's done with the game later. As of right now, it looks pretty bland.

Damn. I'm upset that this is listed for PS3 and 360 too. That WILL drag it down a lot. Still looks like a great game but it won't be as good as it could have been.

The trailer looks nice, I hope the game will be good.

I expected yet another crappy Colonial Mariens like shooter, this looks alot better than I though it would be!

Also, where's my WiiU version. Gamepad as that motion detector should be pretty self explanatory... Jeah, jeah I know. WiiU sucks and all...

I had my thoughts on remaking the original ALIEN game for awhile where managing your role as part of the crew was vital, but it's an interesting take that the franchise is returning to it's horror roots with someone who has a related stake in the story.

One thing I'm wondering, I had a concept for "Ripley" a couple years back where she was doing this and ended up being abducted by the same race that pilot came from, further linking her to what happens later in the franchise, including some "daughter - clone Ripley" face off that happens on the main homeworld.

Not sure how that can happen now that Weaver is an old woman at this point (see this is what happens when you take too long deciding anything, que Old Rocky, Indy, etc)
