Really, after seeing the sleek and skeletal, uncanny-valley, androgynous design of Locusta (aka the 1979 version)in full light, this design pisses me off. It's not a deal breaker, but man is it disappointing. I usually try not to nitpick things too, but I gotta call it like I see it!

The more humanlike the design is, the more disturbing I find it. It's hard for me to understand why the "man in a suit" approach wouldn't be scary or disturbing if the animation is pulled off correctly.

These stances here are similar, if you don't look too close you can't even tell the leg design on the second one. Yet I find Locusta's to be as disturbing.





Not only that, but Locusta's model of the original also shows the sexual connotations of the design, slim and sexy, yet disturbing

Not really seeing the sexy but, hey, I don't judge.

Im talking about the slim (and human) shape. Its sexual like in a thin model. A hunched monster with giant chin and dino legs misses the essence and idea of the original design

I am actually impressed with the design. I like to see subtle changes to the xenomorph. Aliens change their bodies, shapes, and tactics depending on what host they grow inside. It's always nice to see a new artist's take on an old classic. The smooth original head was nixed for Aliens when they used more armor plated skulls. The xenos are an every changing species and I think that's a part of their appeal. Anyhow... I'm stoked for this game. Looks like loads of fun!

Do the devs have a feedback forum where we can air our grievances?

Yeah. There's an official Alien: Isolation website and forum.

I dunno if they really look at user response there but it was buzzing with threads and people the minute the trailers got released.  Haven't went back myself since, though.

Why say no when it feels so much better to say yes?

Cleary to be seen, they took to much notion of the Rambaldi head.

And how is the "man in a suit" look not scary and horrofying???

When the original alien is exposed the "man in suit" is just silly looking. I think the design is fine as it is. The alien looks good it isn't the crappy avpr design. even if it did, as long as the gameplay is good and the story doesn't suck it'll be fun. so they changed the design a little bit? are you going to base the entire game off of a few designs you dislike?
