So I nailed it right?  This is like a TellTale Game?  That covers the #Watch and the #Play.

@Hicks - When you said searched for a "barely contained excitement" GIF for this the other day, did you mean to type "barely excited"?  ;D

I was bummed at first, But now I can appreciate we ARE getting SOMETHING! We still have the other game. I will buy this.

Although a bit silly seeing Amanda back in the exact same scenario again.

I’ll definitely play it, I just hope it’s not a micro transaction nightmare. I really still need to try the AVP game, too.

Yeah it literally seems like a rip of Alien: Isolation's survival mode, but you're controlling four AI-driven characters instead of yourself. Even seems to heavily re-use assets from Isolation - models/sounds/animations, just with heavily reduced polygon counts on models.

This game would've had less backlash and seemed more original if the main character wasn't Amanda Ripley. Unless there are story aspects that haven't been shown, it seems like there's no need for her to be in it.

I’ll definitely play it, I just hope it’s not a micro transaction nightmare. I really still need to try the AVP game, too.
Considering it costs $4.99, I'd like to hope it doesn't have micro transactions. Don't really see how they'd fit into what they have shown off.

Wait. So the big part hasn't dropped yet? The #Watch is something else?  Maybe it's an animated web series?  Or an animated series on Netflix like "Castlevania"?

Argh! I'm reading into Hick's post like it's the mural!  :P

If it's Alien/Predator/AVP content I found expecting nothing works best. This way you will never be really disappointed :P

Yeah if you re-watch the Alien: Blackout trailer, at the end it highlights "PLAY", so "WATCH" is definitely for another project. Wasn't there talk of an online series back along? Maybe that has been resurrected secretly.

I love alien and I love mobile. People are already picking holes at a game they haven’t even seen yet. Pretty sure isolation took sound effects directly from the sound effects in the original. So what if it’s borrowing? This is just history repeating itself. A new thing comes out, about something they claim to love and rather than being happy about it. They chuck mud at it. I for one would love a alien isolation type game I can play on the go. I just hope it’s premium and not free to play. Be grateful that we are being spoilt with classic alien games this year. It might not happen again for awhile.
