E3 2014 - RUN. This is what the trailer to Alien: Isolation tells you to do, and I think once you're in the game, it's going to be something you'll be doing for most of it - running, away from the Xenomorph hunting you down.
If you haven't heard about Alien: Isolation until now, here is what you need to know: you play Ellen Ripley's daughter (Ellen was played by Sigourney Weaver in the various Alien movies) Amanda. Amanda faces down the Xenomorph that her mother eventually gets pitted up again, but Amanda is on a ship, in the dark, seemingly alone.
The video's description teases: "As Amanda, you will navigate through an increasingly volatile world as you find yourself confronted on all sides by a panicked, desperate population and an unpredictable, ruthless Alien. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive". The best part about Alien: Isolation, for me at least, is that it now supports the Oculus Rift. This has made it a day-one purchase - something it was already - but even more so now. Alien: Isolation launches on October 7 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.
