Seriously, why does it find flares so interesting, I mean, it doesn't even have eyes! Does this confirm it sees electromagnetism? Even so, why does it care about a stupid flare?

Probably a nod to the unfilmed scene of the Alien being attracted to an alarm light in the original film.

This is along what I was thinking. I like the idea of the Alien being curious about stuff.

The Alien is curious. It would've been cool to see more examples of it being curious about its environment here and there.

it would have been much more cooler to see someone gets raped by it

This is actually a good point. I would've liked to have seen it, or heard it, kill people in more disturbing or torturous ways now and then. It became rather generic how it always just ran at people, headbite, repeat.

That's generally what it does though.

It does, but more slowness/theatrics/creepiness here and there would be nice. As it stands, he just runs at people like Pacman.

I've got the moment the alien checks out a flare in one of my videos, at around the 25min mark the Alien kills a bunch of people and then goes and squats over a flare...

The reason the Alien finds flares so interesting is because T-Rex did in Jurassic Park, then Velociraptors in Turok, and now any alien whether it be in Call of Duty: Ghosts (Extinction) or Alien: Isolation.

Or because, you know...



        INT. AIR LOCK - "B" DECK

        Low servo whine.
        Door opens.
        Slowly.
        Green light throbbing inside air lock.
        Creature looks curiously at it.
        Moves onto the threshold.

        INT. PASSAGEWAY - "B" LEVEL

        Parker watches...

        INT. AIR LOCK

        Creature move further into air lock.
        Fascinated by green light.

No, it's not that; the Alien is probably fascinated by unexpected things, but the concept of flares was born in Jurassic Park, I believe, which then flowed into other media.

So nothing to do with the original shooting script - but everything to do with dinosaurs...

Well, I don't see an option that lets you turn the lights on or off to distract it.

Good to see that you're still vexing people, Predxeno.
