How's everyone doing today? I trust we all had a safe Halloween, and now are recovering from any crazy parties one might have had, or for some, recovering from eating too much candy. Either way, hope it was a fun time for all.

So this blog will be nothing too special, just the sequel to the previous one. I finished Alien Isolation this week, and while I still stand by it as one of the best games this year, there are some complaints. This may be mildly spoilerific, so use caution.

Alright, let's start with the good:  The alien itself is absolutely terrifying. As soon as he pops up in the game, you have to deal with his stalking you throughout, until a key moment, then you only have to deal with androids and some human opposition until the end when it gets REALLY insane. The tense feeling you get trying to avoid the giant critter is one of the best times in a game. It's not a game about over the top, shoot em up action, instead it's about survival, and this game does deliver on that front.

Now the bad:  The alien IS terrifying, but it can also be very annoying. You never really know where he'll pop up, which is cool and all, but it tends to be frustrating at times when you're trying to come up with a strategy, hiding in a locker only to get attacked by the big guy.
The guns work well enough, but they don't do a thing to the alien. They work on androids, but it takes so much ammo at times to put just one down, and you can't melee them unless they're stunned, so dealing with more than one can be a real pain. The game felt too long for what it was. every time I thought I was at the end, something else occurs and I got to try and get to another location. The last thing was, the ending.
After everything you do in the game, the way it ended was kind of a downer.
She doesn't die, as many who seen the movie "Aliens" knows, but (Remember, spoiler)...............................................She ends up stranded in space, floating around in a space suit, until a ship passes by................................................................................
.................................................................................................................................................................

.....Spoiler ended
Well anyway, as I said it was overall a fun experience, and worth checking out.
I still need to finish Shadow of Mordor, but I did just get a new game:  Bayonetta 2.

Well, I think I'm going to close on that for right now. Hope everyone has a pretty good day!

just to let you know, this screen cap is circling the internet.  You have been caught.  Good thing for you that Slug does not care about people that steal his art.
