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...

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 ...

Maybe Ripley's arms are made of fire?

In what was probably an alternate ending to Alien: Isolation, Amanda Ripley looked down and noticed that her arms were fire. How she went through decades of life without realizing that her limbs were constant chemical combustion wasn't imp...

Very Quick Tips: Alien: Isolation

That Xenomorph can be one tricky asshole in Alien: Isolation. One time it walked out of a room, waited a second, then turned back around to find me awkwardly climbing out of the cabinet I had been hiding in. What a dick. Here's how to avoid...

Review: Alien: Isolation

From the old school "20th Century Fox" opening to the first few seconds, Alien: Isolation wants you to know that it takes after the first film from the series it was based on. One alien, one spaceship, one chance at survival. This is t...

Something's stalking us in Alien: Isolation's television ad

The latest piece of media for Creative Assembly's impending Alien: Isolation prods "How will you survive?" It's a fair question. With that hulking Xenomorph nimbly crawling out of the airshaft, stalking its prey before terrifyingly en...

Most of Alien: Isolation's Survivor Mode will be DLC

Survivor Mode in Alien: Isolation, as described here in this video and further detailed in Steven's hands-on coverage, sounds cool. You'll have to complete certain objectives on a timer while being hunted, and factors like which items you ...

How not to survive in Alien: Isolation

From everything I've heard of Alien: Isolation, it's best not to run around when you think the coast is clear much less when the Xenomorph is right there in the same room. See: the trailer above. Creative Assembly plans to put out more of ...

Alien: Isolation is haunting and uncompromisingly scary

Though it was initially seen as "Jaws-in-space," the legacy for Alien is certainly much more pristine than the one with the giant shark. Originally released in 1979, the first Alien would eventually become a much-loved horror film that spaw...

Go play Alien: Isolation at Comic-Con

SEGA has announced its plans for San Diego Comic-Con, which is to chill at some place called Nerd HQ ironically held at the San Diego Padre's baseball park.  With how much videogame nerds try to bully sportsters for social media passio...

Alien: Isolation's pre-order bonuses are annoyingly good

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 investiga...

Alien: Isolation on Oculus Rift won't see the light of day

One of my favorite experiences at E3 was playing Alien: Isolation on Oculus Rift. The extra layer of immersion that virtual reality could provide did wonders for an already terrifying game. Unfortunately, it seems as if that experienc...

It looks like people really dug Alien: Isolation at E3 2014

Another day, another bit of info about Alien: Isolation. I already know I want to buy it. I don't honestly need trailer after trailer with tiny morsels of gameplay. I'm about ready to jump right in, especially after Steven's ringing endors...

Run, hide, survive: Good advice, Alien: Isolation trailer

That's the coolest SEGA logo ever. I've always liked when a logo is altered to tonally match whatever it's slapped on.  This Alien: Isolation trailer doesn't divulge too much, which is good for a horror title, though there are mo...

Alien: Isolation is more than just you and a Xenomorph

At the reveal event for Alien: Isolation, we were shown a lengthy demo that got right to the heart of the conflict at-hand: Amanda Ripley trying to navigate a space station as a very aggressive Xenomorph hunted her. In our first look at the...

Sound might be the key to survival in Alien: Isolation

Creating atmospheric tension isn't exactly easy. If it were, every survival horror game would be a hit. There are several elements that have to be closely tended to, one of the most important ones being sound. In making Alien: Isolati...

Alien: Isolation set for October 7 release

Alien: Isolation is coming out on October 7 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC. So no need for a PS4 or Xbox One yet? Though I suppose Infamous: Second Son is quite nice. But I'm waiting on The Witness. And yes, I am avoiding talking ...

New Alien: Isolation screens spill the android fluid

If you came here looking for more images of Creative Assembly's terrifying Xenomorph in Alien: Isolation, no such luck. And if the Alien isn't in front of you, that means that he's either behind you, or above you, or in the vents, or oh god...

Here's how Creative Assembly landed Alien: Isolation

When the rumors first got out that Creative Assembly was working on Alien: Isolation, I wasn't concerned so much as I was curious how the studio landed the project. Alistair Hope and Jude Bond spoke about exactly that in an interview with E...

Creative Assembly talks about goals for Alien: Isolation

Alien: Isolation captures the mood of Ridley Scott's film

Have you ever been hunted? I haven't (in a videogame or, thankfully, real life). Some games make veiled attempts to simulate the sense, but as long as you learn and know the correct order of operations, they usually don't take much to best....

 
Isolation like A:CM? photo

Alien: Isolation is nothing like Colonial Marines

There we were. The same notion on everyone’s mind, whether they liked it or not. Members of the press conflicted in their reluctant eagerness to address, key developers dreading the topic altogether. It clouded the air, enough to make...
