Alien: Isolation Official Gameplay Trailer

Alien: Isolation Official Gameplay Trailer

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.

    “We get to shit the book… Ripely.”

    What? Wait, who the hell do you play as? Well, Ripely is the surname, and they mentioned something about, “we’ve found your mother”, so I’m guessing this takes place between the first and second movie, and you play as Ellen Ripley’s daughter who has the unfortunate luck of having to deal with an Alien like her mother did. This seems pretty basic gameplay wise, like Penumbra and Amnesia, and those are great games. Horror always works best in games when it’s simple and basic. I’m a little bit excited for this.

    On a side note, I recently bought Predators on Blu-Ray, and EER MEE GERD was it awesome! Seriously, if you have not seen it, and you like the first Predator (at the very least), you’re an idiot! That, or you just have a life and don’t always have time to watch movies a lot. Either way, go freaking watch Predators. Great action, awesome looking Predator costumes and weapons, really cool fights, some twists and turns, some genuine tense moments, and Trouble Maker Studios actually made Adrien Brody a badass! Who’da thunk it? I know I was skeptical. Plus there’s a special fight that you just have to see for yourself.

    Yea, I should have mentioned it in the write-up. You play as Ellen Ripley’s daughter in this game.

    And yea, Predators is an awesome movie. I’ve seen it quite a few times and it never gets old

    I just realized I typed “We get to shit the book”. At first I was like, “WTF did I just write!?” I meant to type “shut”, not “shit”. Wish I could fix it. Ah well, at least it’s funny.

    I think this is the step in the right direction. More like the original Alien than Aliens. And Noah… I think you may just of came up with a new phrase. “We get to shit the book.”

    looking forward to this, first time hearing about it. As a big fan of alien and the origins of alien aka “Prometheus”, I am looking forward to this one, especially since its all about survival.
