    I'm not sure another studio can literally use the name "Alien: Isolation 2" (only the contracts can reveal that for certain), but other studios can certainly continue Amanda's story, hence Alien Blackout.  :)

    Well well... so Sega was also biased at the time. 

    Sega really botched this up didn't they?

    Can a A:I 2 game be made under the new flags? Or is it also a licence problem due to the Sega thing?

    And yes... most of the AFE hate comes from the Isolation fans. But they need to start seeing these things seperate.


    I'm a huge fan of Isolation and believe it's the best alien game to date. It's impacted me like no other game and captured my attention and praises like never before. Still, AFE is another game and should be looked as a separate style. Give the player options for dumb casual play and hardcore almost simulation like by tweaking the difficulty and simple parameters like health, speed and damage and that's all that's needed IMO. I can't wait for this game personally, I love the survival horror, but I also love the desperate horde modes. This seems like my perfect piece of action. The atmosphere is thick, dark, great lighting and I so want to get my hands on this game!

    What I meant is to face what they face in the movie in a similiar setting under similiar circumstances.
    My point by being so literal was to illustrate that wanting to copy the experience of watching the movies is a fairly meaningless preposition in itself.

    Outside of faithfully copying the aesthetic, Isolation doesn't really even do this. It's very different to the movie in so many ways in terms of the setting and challenges faced.

    AFE seems to be going for the panic and intensity of the Operations Firefight, but creating that panic in a video game friendly format.

    Clickbait sites like We Got This Covered have pushed forward rumors of an Isolation sequel, but the mobile game Alien Blackout was its legitimate follow-up.

    Unfortunately, when I remove my fan goggles and look at this logically, if the publisher is calling out the game's sales publicly as "weak", a sequel in the same vein seems very unrealistic. It's a public declaration that the revenue did not justify its AAA game budget.

    Here are some more details:

    Sega laments "weak" game sales even as hard numbers rise
    Full-year unit sales up 41 per cent, Consumer revenue up 11 per cent, but Alien and Sonic failed to perform

    Didn't Sega had a deal for a certain amount of Aliens games and Isolation was the last one?

    And yes... most of the AFE hate comes from the Isolation fans. But they need to start seeing these things seperate.

    I do feel AI2 is on the way though... something in the air dunno. It's really popular amongst gamers.

    :D Well, those were arcade games, made to make quick money in a machine. I didn't think we had to wait 7 years for an arcade game, but AFE looks to be one. And yes, people will have fun with it for a little while! Just like with those old arcade games. Line up!... I just expected more after all these years.

    I love the passion here, but to me, this all feels rooted from a deep love for Alien Isolation and deep disappointment that we didn't get an Alien Isolation 2. But I do get that. :)

    But reality is people like all different types of games, and as an owner of Isolation and someone who liked the game, at least for me, I for one would get tired of Alien games emulating this one type of gameplay in perpetuity.

    I would've loved a more action oriented but in the same spirit of Alien Isolation, e.g the same spirit as the first two movies. Alien Isolation with a handful of Colonial Marines with limited ammo and resources against a bunch of aliens, yes please. It's slow paced, atmospheric and up close and personal. It didn't have to be Isolation 2. What it would offer is open exploration and that roller coaster ride of highs and lows that the movies offer. Not a constant onslaught of action.

    Have you guys even watched the 25 minute IGN gameplay video? Are you fine with a bunch of aliens just stroking around your legs like cats while you are being attacked by a heavy alien enemy or not doing anything while you are healing your friend? It's just random headless chicken madness with no sense of fear.

    I plan to increase the difficultly to maximum, turn on friendly fire, and dabble in these mutator challenge cards that the developers are backing with a great belief to alter the experience each and every time.

    Yeah, sure, I hate the Aliens being mowed down like a bunch of crickets as much as the next fan, but what we've seen in the footage has clearly been established as easy-setting stuff. The walkthrough was with that IGN idiot after all, the same one that thought Alien Isolation was bang average.

    Have some faith, this is looking bloody decent in my opinion. The locations and use of prequel material has me really excited.

    But..it's an Aliens game? It's supposed to be about survival, it's supposed to be scary, thrilling, dark and claustrophobic. It's supposed to have an intelligent enemy that is extremely hard to kill that will instantly kill you or worse if it gets it hands on you. Alien doesn't fit in zombie horde mode shooter. As soon as the first alien gets close to you it's over. It's not supposed to be a harmless bug that slaps you a bit to take a little HP off your character's life bar.

    *Underperformed compared to Sega's unrealistic expectations.

    Underperformed in regards to money spent. It's always about profit versus cost.. money earned versus money spent on budget, production, promotion, licensing fee dollars, etc. If Sega made money hand-over-fist with Isolation, they wouldn't have declare sales weak for the title to shareholders and they would have greenlit another console game quicker than fans could say Alien: Blackout. :)

    No mention of Alien Resurrection? It's basically exactly what you've described -- action, minimal Aliens that are all a nightmare to run into, desperation, etc.

    Forgot about that one! It's great but I never finished it, it was too difficult! I enjoy Alien Trilogy aswell. The aliens aren't exactly smart there but the atmosphere is thick as hell, the aliens are hard to kill, they hide in the dark and your ammo is very limited.

    It's funny when I say the movie experience and you take it so literally that you think I want to mimic every step of the characters? What I meant is to face what they face in the movie in a similiar setting under similiar circumstances. Can't believe I have to explain this. Alien Isolation did just that, it put you in a survival situation on a space station with confined spaces against an intelligent, deadly alien. The developers Creative Assembly said it was their goal and they succeeded.

    Alien Isolation was great and all but it was a different vison developed by a different team. The idea that another team like CIS can't pursue their own vision and have to stay in a lane established by another team is highly unrealistic.

    Set the bar of what? And how is AFE regressed? HOW EVEN? What do you mean? Stop saying general phrases. Speak specifically.

    I mean: there are survival horrors, but there also are grim and scary games, which not a horrors. There are such genres like tactical shooters with hyper-realism and just coop arcades with hordes.

    Tactical games are not better than an arcades. They are two different genres. If A:I was serious and immersive - this doesn't mean that the following games should be like that. On the contrary, various genres and mechanics should be investigated. The only criterion is quality. And so far, in terms of quality, AFE doesn't look worse than A:I.

    Some of the most popular titles in the series are exactly the kind of game you're complaining about. Clearly people like different things and have different expectations of games vs movies.

    What does it even mean to have a similar experience to the movies? Everyone experiences it differently. Hell, the tension you feel watching the movie vs playing the game are completely different experiences to begin with -- it's watching something bad happen vs having it happen to you.

    Not to mention I don't remember hiding under a table when I watched Alien; I also don't remember any of the characters spending 90% of their time holding their breath in a locker.

    None of those titles comes close to Alien Isolation imo. I've played through Alien Isolation 6 times now I believe and still enjoy it. And no you don't need to stand in a locker, you can outmaneuver the alien if you are skillful. AVP 99 is the second best with great atmosphere and lethal aliens.

    No. You sounds like one of these marketers, who want a promotion, but will never get it. What I want? To see the quality and interesting game in alien setting with a similar things, not with an experience.

    Man it's crazy how you all keep twisting my words. Anyway, I think we are all alien fans for different reasons then. I'm always going to be about wanting a game that can give me a similiar experience as the movie Alien and Aliens. Alien Isolation came really close and is without a doubt the most faithful to the source material. It mostly understands it and respects it. AFE is just another misrepresentation of Scott's and Cameron's universe, like so many other failed titles in this franchise. You can't just put a game in the same universe and think it's going to be a hit. You have to understand the fundamentals of the Alien experience. The Alien have to be a threat, an intelligent menacing foe like no other. It has to be filled with tension, suspense, thrills and interesting environments that you can explore, a great atmospheric score, lighting and sound. The movies are slow moving, even Aliens, with quick bursts of action, with up and downs. Not just mowing down thousands of mindless bugs while running through a level for 5 hours and then calling it the day.

    Half-Life is literally Doom clone, just with a smart plot.

    That's the video game equivalent of saying all humans are apes.

    All humans are primates. Apes too.

    It doesn't matter what was the first or what looks similar. Doom and HL are shooters with their own flaws and advantages. The same with WWZ and AFE: if someone like generic setting and zombies - good for them and only for them. This is not a flaw of AFE or something like.

    For example: I'm really interested in WWZ gameplay mechanic, but I WILL NOT PLAY this game, because zombie and generic setting are boring things to me. But I like the gameplay and want to play a similar game, but in my favorite setting. What's how things works.

    How can you not be disappointed that this is what we get after the most immersive, intense and impressive alien game ever made? To go from a highly intelligent xeno that stalks you to mindless drones just charging at you in wide open areas. This is going to be a very linear, mindless and short game with zero of the tension from the previous title.

    So, you don't like clones, but you hate AFE, because it's different from A:I? I hear you.

    I don't think you are hearing me at all tbh. As I said in my first post, it could've been the perfect blend of action and horror, just like the movies it's supposed to be based on. Don't get me wrong, I was hoping to kill some aliens witha pulse rifle aswell, but yes in more of a Alien Isolation type style, meaning you have clever enemies, confined spaces on spaceships, vents etc. A more slow paced, realistic take on it with a very limited HUD. Alien and Aliens was always about making it feel like a realistic situation in a realistic environment. Remember this https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1277125/mediaviewer/rm1708431873/ from the game informer article for A:CM? That picture alone conveys what I was hoping for. For a game developer, the natural step from Alien Isolation would've been Aliens, just like the movie it could've been about survival with limited resources.

    Because it works for an ALIENS game, it always has only no one dared to do it (besides some excellent mods for certain games  ;D )
    Just like it works for a Gears game or a Killing Floor game. People like shooting hordes of enemies.

    Heres a picture from an Aliens horde taken in 1986:

    It...WORKS.

    You can still get fear just like in Aliens, just very panic orientated instead of dread. Comparring this to Isolation is silly, they are 2 different games just like Alien is a different movie comparred to Aliens. Haunted house vs war movie.

    I think it will work tbh.

    So, I have a few questions:
    1) Do you played WWZ?
    2) If so, then why you skip AFE?
    3) Only gameplay is important for you, not setting?
    4) Do you really prefer to play a generic zombie game over Alien?  :o

    6) Do you know how genres and subgenres works?
    7) Tell me one reason to play another shooter instead of OG Doom, or another RTS instead of Dune, or another souls-like instead of DS, etc.

    For your knowledge: a similar people called Alien: Isolation as a clone of Outlast and asked - why should I play the Outlast clone? And these were the (pseudo) Alien fans!

    1. Yes, it was fun for a couple of hours.

    2. Because xenomorphs shouldn't be compared to zombies. Zombies are braindead and the aliens seem to be aswell in AFE.

    3. Of course, but if the title enemy which I grew up admiring is presented as a mindless and weak zombie then the background isn't going to help.

    4. No but AFE will be a mindless generic zombie shooter with an aliens skin with a 5 hour campaign running from A to B holding down Mouse 1.

    5. Because it's basically the same game with different skin.

    6. Yes.

    Another game that misses the mark entirely. You know why Alien Trilogy is a fan favorite amongst the shooter take on an alien game? It's because one alien was a threat, ammo was scarce and it was up close and personal thanks to a first person perspective. Simple as that. Fighting a few intelligent 7 foot tall aliens that are hard to kill with a quickly depleting ammo counter is much scarier than mowing down hundreds of unintelligent bugs from a zoomed out third person perspective. And on top of that, if one gets too close, you can apparently just punch it...like in colonial marines..

Fighting a few intelligent 7 foot tall aliens that are hard to kill with a quickly depleting ammo counter is much scarier than mowing down hundreds of unintelligent bugs from a zoomed out third person perspective. And on top of that, if one gets too close, you can apparently just punch it...like in colonial marines..

    So do you have to buy the deluxe edition to get the classic looking marine armor or can it be purchased separately? I hope it can be individually purchased because locking things behind deluxe editions is kind of BS.

    Does that really amount to a difference though? Whether you buy it separately as DLC or packaged in as a Deluxe Edition (etc) it's still "locked behind" an amount of extra money. It's not like a pre-order incentive, where you sometimes can't access it at all after the initial release (looking at you AVP 2010 and Predator: HG!).
