AvPGalaxy Reviews The Book of Alien: Augmented Reality Survival Manual

For the longest time, the only piece of in-universe reference material that existed for the Alien franchise was Aliens: Colonial Marines Technical Manual. The Tech Manual (often abbreviated as CMTM) detailed the inner workings of the Colonial Marines, their technology and some details about the Aliens.

I’ve never been able to read it cover-to-cover (though Darkness has previously reviewed it). It’s just too dry for my taste but it contains some cool information that you can just dip into. Fast forward to 2015 and we get Alien: The Weyland-Yutani Report (my thoughts on that are here). Much in the same vein as the Technical Manual, the Weyland-Yutani Report was written as an in-universe guide to the Company’s (and the USM) encounters with the Alien.

2017 graces us with another entry into in-universe guides in the form of The Book of Alien: Augmented Reality Survival Manual. The Augmented Reality Survival Manual (ARSM) is framed around the concept of being a guide issued to the United States Colonial Marines to offer intelligence on the Alien, information on previous encounters with the creatures and guidance on how to effectively combat the Aliens.

    Just got my copy in the mail today. I haven't had much time to mess with it (let alone mess with the AR functionality) but it looks pretty neat. I suspect I'm going to have similar "presentation" problems that I had with the WY Report, but like with that book, I get why they did it the way they did.
    Just from a cursory glance I did catch what appear to be a couple errors already, but that's okay.
