Gold

Man, there are a lot (technically one metric alot) of games arriving next month. There are even more games that have been delayed because of…stuff. One game that hasn’t been delayed however? Alien: Isolation, which has just gone gold. Time to celebrate an impending horrible death then, with some new video that is all about survival.

In case you’re wondering what going gold signifies, it means that the game is done. Finished, and ready to be printed and then shipped all around the world. No more delays, barring some jerkass stealing the ship that all the games are stored on, which might be the plot of Metal Gear Solid 2.

The Creative Assembly developed game is now on track for an October 7 release, with the team behind the game starting a new hashtagged campaign called #HowWillYouSurvive. It’s essentially a series of short trailers, dealing with methods on how to avoid not being lethally double mouth-raped by the Xenomorph that is stalking you. Here’s the first video:

In short, don’t make a sound, don’t let it see you and don’t call it a bitch. It really doesn’t like that. Xenomorphs also don’t like being klapped in the face with mechanised power-suits either, but I doubt that option will crop up in this game.

Influenced by that cult classic Ridley Scott movie from 1979, Alien Isolation isn’t about killing everything on your screen, but rather surviving it. It’s out on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Right next to the aisle where they stalk clean underwear.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Hehehe, dat header!

  • Jonah Cash

    How cool is this????

    • Anon A Mouse

      Could have done more with the controllers I think.

      • Jonah Cash

        It is vinyl print I think, they have them in all shapes and sizes!! Batman, Watchdogs, Superman, The Last of us, lots of skulls, a white vinyl and off course Destiny….

      • MakeItLegal

        lol

  • Sir Rants A Lot: On Pandora

    I shall wait for reviews and then +1 month for all the crappy patches and stuff to come out first

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      Same here, wait-and-see approach is much wiser here

      • Hammersteyn

        More like a special approach? Amirite?

    • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

      Pretty much my thoughts on all games lately and then add to that waiting for the sale or the GOTY edition that is actually the whole game.

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

        Actually I’m not doing it to be cheap (as per the other article today), I am NOT paying to be a beta-tester

        • Hammersteyn

          I actually burned myself, played Destiny for about five minute4s and couldn’t connect to the server for the rest of the night. Yeah, consoles are becoming more like PCs

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Seeing as we are on the same server now, Y U NO PLAY PS2?

          • Hammersteyn

            I do.

        • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

          I also refuse to be a beta tester, but I judge for myself the worth of the game and then buy it at a price I decide it deserves. If the game is worth $60 I will pay it. Like Witcher 3 I will buy full price on gog.com, but Thief I will wait for it to be at least below $10 probably $5

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Yeah, Dief really fell quite short

          • UltimateNinjaPandaDudeGuy

            I actually pre-ordered it and then the before I cancelled and got a full refund. Best. Decision. Ever.

          • Admiral Chief Assassin

            Nice!

            (also, nice save on the edit!)

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            I still want to get it, but I don’t have to buy it because when I upgrade I’ll get it as part of AMD’s Never Settle bundle 😉

  • Hammersteyn

    LOL, Sega again?

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    He looks like he want to order a facehugger & a falafel.
