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

In recent days, rumors have been abound that Creative Assembly was working on Alien: Isolation 2. It started with Official PlayStation Magazine writing (as reported by PlayStation Universe) "Our sources tell us that after work is finished o...

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...

Sega promoting Alien: Isolation with scary eels

Alien: Isolation launches in Japan this week and Sega is promoting it in the creepiest way possible. Over the next week in Tokyo, folks will have an opportunity to feast on the closest thing to a real live Chestburster on this planet -- all...

Sega calls Alien: Isolation sales 'weak' at 2.1 million

Creative Assembly's Alien: Isolation was one of the most well-received games of 2014, but "well-received" seemingly doesn't cut it for its publisher. Sega released its year-end financial results today, and in it expresses disappointmen...

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...

Steam SEGA Super Bundle gives you $370 worth of games for $80

Sega is sailing onto Steam with sales this sweekend. On this page you'll find a general list of things on sale. It is deceptive because a $2.50 Jet Set Radio or a $6.80 Valkyria Chronicles share as much screen space as the "SEGA Super Bundl...
