    I can see why people are full of cynicism.

    One thing that such a scaled down game is being made, but one based on a massive movie license and being published by a relatively large company makes it even more shocking.

    Hope this devs continue to be allowed to make the game they want as the original Alien movie is the only one I truly liked.

    Game looks damn good can't wait to see how it turns out.

    Watching these videos made me realize I have not played a game in over a month...

    Awesome. :) Can't wait for this.

    Even though they have a release date... I'm holding off on any pre-order as I'm waiting for a delay to be announced.
    I hope it doesn't happen, but, I've come to expect them.

    I reckon it is due to how much the developers were at the forefront of the marketing. Because consumers tend to be more trusting of the developers than publishers (publishers are just such an easy target to blame), combine that with IP that some people just adore, they put way too much faith into the product and got burned badly.

    Hype trains are the real baddies in that story IMO.

    That teaser/trailer looks fantastic but man it's Creative (Rome 2 with battle for Carthage trailer looked so awesome in comparison to final product :( ) so only hope remains in me that it'll be as good as trailers but nothing more.

    I was very much in that mindset with Lost Planet 3.

    While not a huge fan of the first two games, I did like the first one. So I kept an eye on the series, and I was beyond annoyed when they announced Spark Unlimited was developed the third game.

    The first thing I thought was "Spark?! The dips behind Turning Point and Legendary?!"
    It seemed like a horrible choice as those two games were beyond awful in pretty much every way.
    So I was very much against LP3, not willing to give it a chance. And, a friend gifted it to me through STEAM during the last holiday sale.

    And I've played about 4 hours of it... and I really like it. The gameplay is simple and straight forward third person shooter, but it's solid.
    Visuals are good, not great... but good. But, the characters... voice acting, dialog... writing... it's wonderfully done.



    So, sometimes, even a troubled studio can really deliver when they are given something to really sink their teeth into.
    And it seems like that's the case for CA here. They seem really hyped and devoted to this game. And thankfully, they announced it when they had something to show.

    Great video, loved everyone's reactions!

    I found out it is supposed to be between 12-15 hours long.That is a good run time for a horror game like this.

    You mean like "The Thing" game? it had that element, and despite the game being a bit buggy, that was probably the best part of the game for me.
    I remember playing the game for quite a good bit, and during a fight one of my teammates starts transforming and I'm like wtf? wtf?? dead. :)

    Never played The Thing, not sure why not as i'm a fan of the movie.

    Really looking forward to this game, it looks like a slow year and it's only this and Watch Dogs that have me interested.

    Hmmm. After watching the IGN 'reactions' video i suspect it's a 1 timer and has no replay value whatsoever.

    The game tells you what to do, you go there, do mini puzzles in a certain time or get caught by the Alien (AI).

    Alternative ways? No.
    Different playstyles? Nope.
    Cutscenes without warning, pausing the action? Yep.

    Not good, not good. :(

    That's a demo made for the press. It starts a ways into the game, and is made by cutting pieces of larger levels together.
    The alien won't be the only threat in the game. There will be human and synthetic enemies you'll have to deal with.
    Also, they've said that the alien won't attack or even show up in the same places.

    I think it looks great.
    Plus, it shows something else. People are saying that this game will pull an A:CM and at release, won't look anything like it's pre-release videos.
    But, with A:CM... SEGA didn't let IGN or any websites/journalists have demos that they could play outside of SEGA. They were only allowed to play the game at SEGA, GBX or game shows.

    Yet, with Isolation, they've given demos out to websites, internet reviewers, journalists... and let them play it at their businesses, homes... what have yous.
    This is how the game looks. I worked in CA's favor to not officially announce or show the game until it was almost finished.

    Some new footage from E3, I believe they are showing more tonight as well.

    Looks pretty good, a lot like Outlast but with an alien running about. I would be very tempted to preorder this, but I'll think I'll hold off and wait to see how it turns out. Graphics are looking very nice and the E3 demo was running on PS4, looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

    I'm pretty sure they will nail the atmosphere on this one big time, looks as authentic as it can get for true Alien universe.

    I was more pumped before watching that. Something about that orange garbage can and the ice skating alien that wasn't wearing it's shiny/wet skin.

    The 70's feel is very cool stuff, but it seems to work better in stills than in motion. A still shot looks quite realistic to me, but when the camera is panning around that realism went out the window for me.

    Still excited for the game though, and that was just teaser footage so who knows what could change between now and release.

    Alien: Isolation looks great to me.
    So far, it's been some of the better stuff shown at E3 this year. At least, IMO.
