Holy cow, Alien: Isolation will be on Switch

In the outro sizzle reel during today's Direct, we got a glimpse of some upcoming games and Alien Isolation was among them. I'm surprised the Switch can even handle such a title, but it almost makes too much sense. You'll be so scarred...

Snag the new Alien mobile game for $1 today

In late 2018, 20th Century Fox trademarked "Alien: Blackout," giving people hope that there was a proper sequel to Alien: Isolation on the way. That, uhh, didn't turn out to be the case. Alien: Blackout is a mobile game that laun...

Giveaway: Get lost in the beautiful Planet Alpha

Admit it: Earth kinda sucks. Even before all the damage caused by the parasite known as man, the place was still pretty colorless. A green forest? Yawn. A brown desert? Blech. Hell, even the most abundant resource on our planet is mostly ju...

Review: Before We Vanish

If you were to ask me years ago what I thought about modern day science fiction movies I could have gone on at length about how the genre that once made us look in on ourselves and think about who we are as a person had given up on telling ...

Review: Alien: Covenant

[Ed Note: Film Review]  As reviled as it is (justifiably or not), Prometheus deserves a little pass for being unlike its Alien siblings in large part because of its branding. It may be in the same canon, but it&rsqu...

Don't get your hopes up for Alien: Isolation 2

Sega really should revisit Alien: Isolation for VR

Alien: Isolation in virtual reality -- need I say more? Besides the inherent potential for terror in a game about evading a lone Xenomorph, even the more mundane sequences could work wonderfully in VR. Creative Assembly nailed the retro-fut...

Review: ZEN Pinball 2: Aliens vs. Pinball

Today is Alien Day, the latest in a series of dubious holidays pushed by marketing departments. Unlike Back to the Future Day which has a very obvious temporal tie-in, the date for Alien Day comes from the plan...

WHATTAYA BUYIN' off of this good Sony flash sale?

Flash sales sometimes seem like digital stores' weird attempt to sell off junk that no one wants. It's like going to a garage sale where a kind old lady wants to pawn off old cigarette butts and ruined cassette tapes to anyone passing by. N...

Fallout 4 has the smallest Alien Easter egg

First, let me clear something up that also confused the shit out of me. Prometheus 2 is no longer called Alien: Paradise Lost, but instead Alien: Covenant and is coming in 2017 (as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy). Meanwhile, Neill ...

A modder has taken the Alien out of Alien: Isolation

The first time I played Alien: Isolation, I was at developer Creative Assembly's studio in Horsham, England. The game hadn't been announced yet and we were the first non-Sega people to see it. There was the briefest of introductions before ...

Steam Summer Sale, an embarrassment of riches

I still firmly believe that one of the greatest upsides of being a PC gamer are the twice annual fire-sales hosted by Steam. Those sales, alongside the multitude of other deals and bargains that can be scooped up from Humble Bundle, GoG, an...
