Alien Isolation Ripley DLC not pre-order exclusive, will release later


Could do better than that
Jul 11
// Steven Hansen
I think that Alien: Isolation could be great. Pre-order DLC is bad. Especially when it's actually cool sounding content, like a few missions starring the original Alien cast in the upcoming Alien: Isolation. After a...

Here's what Ripley and friends look and sound like in Alien: Isolation


Must. Stay. Strong.
Jul 10
// Brett Makedonski
Someone needs to take Sega aside and politely inform it that pre-order incentives aren't actually supposed to be enticing. Years of custom gun skins and XP boosts have made the whole affair predictable and boring, and then S...

Is this Harry Dean-Stanton's first game appearance? Who cares.
The pre-order bonuses for Alien: Isolation have been announced, and they're really, really cool... but should we take it at some kind of sign? After all, it was a very similar lust for bonuses that led to the crew of The Nostromo investigating the distress signal coming from LV-426, in the process granting passage to the film's titular nightmarish stowaway.

I'm waiting for unabashed Skinner Box pre-order bonuses
Ubisoft has launched a new tactic for netting pre-orders for Assassin's Creed: Unity in the form of a digital slot machine. Pre-order customers gain 5 free spins every Friday, and prizes include everything from in-game content to a trip to Paris. While participants pay no actual money to play, using gambling as a way to attract customers still feels a bit sleazy.
