It looks good, but they barely show us anything. Seems appropriate, given that the movie the game is based off of is Alien. They're giving us a little taste and relying on our imaginations to do the rest of the work. I like this, but I also hate it cause I wanna see more. : /

Nice videos and it looks promising. I guess I can buy that the Nostromo might have ejected a flight recorder pre-detonation, as standard protocol or something. This game better explain why the company didn't go back to LV-426 after they found it, though.

My guess would be that Seegson Synthetics are a rival to Weylan-Yutani and that they found the flight recorder and decided to copy the data and decrypt it themselves before handing it over to WY. A form of industrial or corporate espionage if you will.

Perhaps they saw the co-ordinates where the Nostromo last set down and decided to go and have a look-see what a 63 000 metric ton commercial towing vessel from a rival company was doing out in the boondocks.

Perhaps Seegson sent out a few guys to check out the landing site, picked up the derelict's beacon and someone got hugged. Perhaps everyone panicked and rushed the rape patient back to Sevastopol station which in turn might explain why there is a solitary alien roaming the station when Amanda arrives.

First impression, the characters look great. Far better than the stilted and weirdly proportioned characters in Colonial Marines. Some of the facial animation looks like it still needs a bit of work, but overall everything is impressive.

I'm becoming scared about how this will look on the X360....  :-[

The 360 is 9 years old. I will probably have the One or PS4 by the time this is out.

I'm honestly expecting a level of linearity similar to the Bioshock series, which had a decent amount of free-roaming and backtracking, but when it came to characters was mostly instance and room-based, scripted stuff.

That will be fine so long as the Alien has a degree of randomness to its' behavior, and the writing is solid.

It's like a big secret that if they put some effort into developing real characters with decent writing, their demise adds to the horror immensely.

Well, they did go back...to colonize.

I wish I had enough money to buy another console (I just bought a Wii U)...

The most striking thing about this trailer to me (in case my post over in the Literature section was TLDR) was comparing some of what we saw to the upcoming comics:
