The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Im putting this game in after over a year of not touching it. I'm totally lost, all I know is that I have a flame thrower and I'm shitting myself after 20 seconds of playing it. This has got to be the most tense and stressful videogame ever made. I hear its in VR now on PC. I would need a handle of scotch to play that. Also hearing that its out on the Nintendo switch, which seems great since you can play with headphones, in the dark or right on the toilet. I'm not a big fan of the first Alien film, I'm all about ALIENS,
but this is an incredible experience. Is there anyone here who hasn't played it? Anyone who's finished it? If youre a die hard fan of the first movie, you need to play this. Unless you have a heart condition. Maybe this game could help people who are going a little nuts in quarantine.

I'm only a couple of hours in, but I'm enjoying it so far. If any PC gamers want to give it a try, you can sign up for the XBox for PC beta for 5-10 dollars a month, and Isolation is included.

I hope you managed to get through this game.
I would never consider myself to be a hard-core gamer, but I am a gamer. I have been playing video games since my Commodore 16plus4 back in the late 80s.

My experience of Alien Isolation was one of the most amazing gaming experiences of my life. I rushed out and bought the game on release night, having spent the year prior watching the development video diaries from Creative Assembly and drooling at the prospect.
The game did not disappoint, but also scared the living hell out of me to a point where I could not play it.
I started playing this in the dark with headphones on. Even now, after playing through the entire game 3 times now, the moment when you first hear that wood-wind tone come through on the opening screen it sends a shiver down my spine and makes all my senses come alive. This is such an immersively beautiful and haunting game, I truly believe in my opinion (which is not worth much) that Alien Isolation is the greatest video game of all time.

I just restarted this after getting stuck and not touching for over a year. About two hours in, sharing the experience with my boys now that they’re old enough to play. Completely immerses you into the Alien universe, then tries to either frustrate or scare the feces out of you every few minutes. I can’t imagine playing with headphones in the dark, but I’m going to give it a try soon. I love the original Alien, even saw it in the theater with my dad (at WAY too young of an age). It’s right up there with Aliens, just an obviously different kind of love. If Alien is the hot brunette librarian coming to a slow boil, Aliens is the Baywatch blond running on a beach.

man I agree. I hope they update this for PSVR. Though I doubt anyone could get very far.
Sure wish theyd do a sequel in the ALIENS setting.
