So, I’ve started doing a thing. Because I love the Alien franchise, especially the first movie but because I hate scary video games I have decided to stream my playthrough of Alien: Isolation. Otherwise I’m just going to chicken out from playing it. Actually there’s a fair chance I’ll chicken out from playing it anyway but now when I finally fear-quit it’ll be on video.
To catch up, here’s the story so far.
Episode 1: I explore the safe part of the game without knowing it’s safe. Or believing it’s safe.
Episode 2: I fuck up badly trying to get past one of the earliest stealth puzzle. This one is painful to watch if you want to see me make progress.
Episode 3: I sort out how I fucked up in the last episode and, well, meet the alien. It’s actually less terrifying than it could have been but from here on in? Death stalks me.
