Alien: Isolation

I wanna be all alone with Alien: Isolation and more with Sega's E3 2014 offerings

1:30 PM on 06.06.2014 // Brittany Vincent

Hatsune Miku all up in here, holla!

Once your heart's broken, what do you do? I only want some pieces of you, Sega. And I won't be making it out to E3 to check out your lineup. There are a few games coming down the pipeline over at Sega that I'm more than a little intrigued by. Heck, I even want to try out the Sonic Boom games, even though I'm really not liking the characters' new look. Here's what you can expect to see at Sega's booth this year if you're heading out to E3 next week.

Alien: Isolation leads the pack, of course, a slick-looking exercise in survival horror that our own Brettany went hands-on with and lived to tell the tale. It looks to be much-improved from the abortion that was Aliens: Colonial Marines, which I'm sure everyone is waiting to be able to say after putting down the controller, and it's one of my most-anticipated games of the show as your resident Alien die-hard. Follow Amanda Ripley, daughter of Ellen Ripley, as she struggles to survive while being hunted by the Alien. Look for the game October 7 of this year, but play it on the show floor at E3.

Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric for Wii U, and Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal for 3DS are making their debuts as well, showcasing a new look for Sonic and the gang. Spoiler alert: They look absolutely horrific, but Brett the Hedgehog went hands-on with the latest entry in the franchise for us and took one for the team with his preview, and he thinks Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric is fair to middling. Eh. Both games include the newest member of the Sonic team, Sticks, as they band together to fight off Lyric, a snake-like creature who wants to take over the world. Same thing he does every night, Pinky.

Last, but not least, we've got Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F 2nd, and the introduction of this previously Japan-only PSP rhythm game on PS3 and Vita make me happy in all the right places. With twenty new songs for Western gamers and twenty new songs new to the Project DIVA series, it sounds like I'm going to need to get my Miku on yet again when this finally releases. And there you have it -- Sega's E3 2014 lineup. Is it what you were expecting? Are you disappointed?

AARRGGGHHHH!!!, GODDAMIT!, fucking SOMA has crashed 3 fucking times in a row and I always lose ~20 minutes of playtime!, playing the same section over and over kinda ruins the tension! >.<'

N-Not that P1 isn't perfect the way she is! Isn't that right sweetie? Yes it... Oh, now don't you go and listen to those P2 fans! They just go around spreading rumors and pretending Hitler was just a handsome gentleman in sunglasses, that's what THEY do!

Persona Q has made me realize I really want a Persona 1 remake on 3DS in a similar style. A lot. A loooooooot. You listening, Atlus?
Super Mario Maker, the announcement of Sonic Lost World for Steam, and remembering all of the mods that got made for the PC version of Sonic Generations makes me wish SEGA/Sonic Team would make their own dedicated Sonic level creation game.

Hey, is your fridge running? You better catch it. I mean, it has all your food, and without food, you die. Like, forever. You don't wanna die right? If you die, how will you watch The Good wife with your favourite bowl of Ben and Jerry's ice cream? Go.

Spooky yet totally true gaming fact: the bushes and the clouds in Super Mario Bros are the same exact shape. #Spooky

The newest PS4 update finally got rid of that bug where I'd get the "you can customize your power options" message every time I turned on my console!

Should I just pass on MGSV? I haven't really liked any of the games after Snake Eater, and it's being used as a money sink at the moment.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.
