If you listen to the NSFW Gamer Podcast then you know how much I hated Aliens: Colonial Marines. Hell, “hate” isn’t even strong enough, “loathed” is a better word for it. Randy Pitchford ruined my birthday with that abomination of a game and I’ll never forgive him for that.
Thankfully Alien: Isolation doesn’t have anything to do with him or Gearbox in general (I guess SEGA learned their lesson). That’s not to say that I’m going to go out and pre-order it or anything, but the idea of you alone on a spaceship with just one Xenomorph definitely has me intrigued.
Check out the first official gameplay trailer after the jump and take note of the fact that it “uses the in-game engine.” The hardest thing this dev team has to face is overcoming the stank of Colonial Marines…and make a good game, of course.
