OnlySP: A Youtube user has put together a video with clips from Alien: Isolation without any commentary in the videos. Thank goodness.
Game looks promising if you ask me! I have always loved Alien, and have yet to see a horror game made, which is funny seeing how it is a horror movie. Here to hoping they can make it among the likes of Amnesia and such other great horror titles.
Well I wouldnt ask you so there.....
This could be the alien game that we've all been waiting for.
Don't be a dick.
I agree! Light and sound play such an important role in these types of games and in these little snippets it seems like they've done an amazing job with those. On a side-note, I'm stoked we're getting Outlast on PS+ next month! Haven't played a good horror game in a long time. Seems like we're finally getting some good games in the genre again. I'm anxious for some new news on the Evil Within too.
Yeah, this...actually looks potentially good. Maybe the problem was everyone was trying too hard to make an Aliens-inspired game, when what we really needed was an Alien-inspired game.
The difference between Alien and Aliens, I get you on that. Survival horror or an action game where you go in guns blazing. The sequel to the movie started turning into another Rambo or Predator, where it could show off all the buff, tough, action stars. Lol Being over-powered against a xenomorph is not allowed as a human the way I see it. No matter what you're holding you should be shittin' your pants.
The last minute or so of the video got me really excited for this. The tension when the lights went out was great, especially listening to it on a good headset. I have high hopes for this, and seeing the most websites actually previewed the game and got to try it rather than see the tech demo and Pitchford playing only increases that hope. (I know Pitchford has nothing to do with Isolation, just what happened with the previous Alien game)
Refusing to get hyped. Cant do it to myself again.
Me too. No matter how nice that video looks I refuse to get my hopes up. Again.
I agree that "hyped" is premature, but "interested" seems fair.
It looks awesome but the flash light is truly terrible though & not entirely sure about the strolling upright alien at the end.
I also find it weird the way the Xeno is acting. Completely unlike the ones in the movies. But whatever.. The flash light is a bit **** too. But em, well, these are minor complaints I think. Flashlight is just a flashlight and changing the behavior of the Alien is for gameplay purposes. Although I certainly hope the whole game isn't like that, Xenos can be so much scarier than the way the one in the Vid is being portrayed. This vid reminded me ALOT of the first level of Amnesia, the dark descent. The Xeno acted alot like the enemies in that level, where they just walk around the place. The sound effects are top notch though. To be honest I think they're just putting Amnesia in the Alien universe and doing that. Seeing as Sega haven't managed to make a great game with Aliens in it yet. It's been over 10 years since the last good one. Amnesia was met with a very good response though so I think they're cashing in on that
It actually happens to be behaving EXACTLY how it did in the first movie.
In fact that's how most of them walked in the 2nd movie as well lol.. its just in the 2nd movie they did end up crawling on walls as well. But yea they do tend to stand up right.
Makes sense to me. The xeno is fearless and it thinks it is hunting a much inferior prey. if it walks uppright it is probably because it is searching and on its TOES, so to speak. Humans started to walk uppright as it made things easier to spot, carry things and generally navigate in tall grass and vegetation. A huge upright alien is also much more intimidating, animals shoots their back like cats or dogs and bears stand up to show their size like "Hey Im huge, you dont want to mess with me".
Humans have always walked upright...
he means we evolved to walk upright.. rather then like monkeys.
The alien stands upright in the first movie, which this game is inspired from.
Still feeling the disappointment of colonial marines, will only consider this game when i see some gamers reviews
Not sure why this is being downvoted considering yanikins111 said essentially the same thing and has received the opposite reaction.
I just can't get hyped for this, it looks really good but I got burnt last time so bad waiting for pro evolution soccer to come out and it just wasn't what konami had promised us. So I'm going to wait for reviews on this first, I can't put myself through that pre-order hell again.... I just can't.
Looking good, but i would defo get it if it had a 3rd person camera. Maybe its just me, but i can better judge the situation with a 3rd person camera..
That would remove the fear and the point of the game.
dude, seriously, since when first person camera meant fear? Silent Hill anyone?
In silent hill your not hiding from things... if you want fear like your hiding.. u need to see it from the perspective of where you are hiding. With first person u wont see the alien.. but if u do.. that means he can see you too. With third person u see the alien as though u can look past walls without stickn ur head out.
3rd person makes it too easy to see things beyond line of sight. It also hurts the sense of immersion, if immersion is what the designers are going for.
In response to your silent hill comment... The idea of hiding is restriction and constraint and limited visibility. With 3rd person you can just get the camera to peek around the corner for you. When it's in FP it makes you feel more like YOU are peeking around the corner etc. Its playing into the whole tunnel vision and placing you in the shoes of the character. If amnesia was in 3rd person it wouldn't of been anywhere near as scary. Seeing something through your eyes is always more terrifying than watching someone go through something. First person makes you feel more like it's you 3rd person makes it more like you are watching. That's the idea. I'm not trying to slant your preference but first person is always more terrifying. Imagine hiding in te closet. In 3rd person you probably would still see the room if the alien opens the door. In first you only know when it's jaws are in your face and it's already too late
valid points, but i prefer 3rd over 1st anyday, in any genre. My personal choice.
looking good, but so did the pre launch demos for the train wreck that was aliens: colonial marines
Crappy youtube quality
looks fantastic! but so did the first few Colonial Marines videos. We must be cautious.
lol that 720p looks like 360p O_o
