I would argue that reaching save point in RES game feels as even more of an accomplishment than in Isolation. At least in Isolation it's pretty hard to miss a save point which has obvious glowing green light and pretty distinct sound cue. RES on PS1 was f**king maze of a game

Kinda interesting how both this and Isolation started as 3rd person games to be only later switched to 1st person ones

Both also have the same manual save system. I remember in ARES every time I would reach one and it'd be like, "Thank god!" Isolation upped the ante by making you have to wait a bit before saving, which was nerve-racking under pressure.

I'll let the boss know. Are you emailing the webmaster address?

Appreciated.

Yep, using that address.

It used to be fine, as my ye oldie IPad linked to my Hotmail account, then that went south, so linked it to my Gmail account.


I've got a fair measure of both misc games press and features, interviews with Aliens film cast and likes of H. R GIGER, i would like the site to have.

Might work in 3rd person but the camera positioning's  awkward, looks like it got designed for 1st person then switched to 3rd by console command if I did not know any better, still love seeing stuff about it.

Ah, I missed that in the E3 version.

In the video at 17:40 they get hugged once, then hugged again in a minute and the countdown reset. I meant if that made it in the final game it could have been a strategy. Also, I was asking because I was not sure if I interpreted the video correctly or had bad memory. I rewatched to confirm.

Facehuggers ignore you if you're impregnated. They follow you, but they idle until you kill them or you remove the burster.

Third person definitely doesn't suit this game. I wonder how an android gets face hugged though. Don't remember that in the final game as there was one Call level and the portable surgery pickups I think only show up for Ripley later in the game. Perhaps Call could throw them at NPCs? Also, did getting facehugged twice reset  the countdown? Could be a strategy to keep getting facehugged until the end of the level to get to the finish.

I wonder if Ripley "got it"...?

Interesting watch, but I think it works better as first person.

I actually managed to finish the game on an emulator. It get's easier once you know the weapons, enemies and tricks that the game pulls on you. The number one thing is to conserve ammo and only use the pistol on eggs and facehuggers. Christies dual pistols are awesome but they are only in one level.

Was surprised my Playstation 3 could actually play this game. I think it even made the graphics a bit better.
All models of the PS3 can natively play PS1 games. Only certain launch models of the PS3 can play PS2 games, though.

Had this game for years but the controls put me off so never played for more than 5 mins.
It's the first console FPS to use the now-standard dual-stick look/move system that was popularized by Halo.
