Game Play Pile: Alien Isolation
I was able to satisfy the internal pact that I made with myself. “I cannot play a new game until I finish a couple of games that I got from the last Steam Sale. Those two games were: Dawn of War II [and the expansions] along with and Fallout 3 Modded [and all the dlcs]
To the best of my recollection; I do not remember if I have ever played a horror survival type of game before. Then comes along Alien Isolation, a survival game that takes place within the Alien atmosphere? Yeah! Okay… spank me twice, take my money and bring me pizza.
The story is utterly compelling, the game play [mechanics] are pretty good. This scary first person shooter is not only scaring the piss out of me, but they also added in a crafting engine. Just when you think, you might be close to finishing… “they pull me back in”.. no really.. that frapping alien. It will do that if you don’t really play this game smart. As of this post, I haven’t finished the game, yet. There are times that I just want it to end, but on the other hand, the story that is being told, could have been a pretty good direct to DVD movie.
