I think I had a stroke the other night, and I'm playing on easy. Going To take a break until I can find a cheat or trainer for it, things got me stressed.

Yeah, my SO pre-ordered it. She's on Easy Mode, too. Have to be sneaky all the time, which takes way longer. If you go too fast, you die a lot from getting blindsided. I've been wishing it was a multiple player game.

Not so far, but not very deep into it yet either.

The most scary part is the annoying guy commenting that game.

I am loving it so far. Only playing through the single player with my SO, taking turns. She has some amazing luck, turning corners just to see the alien has just turned around and it stalking off the other direction. Jammy luck. Only complaint I have is quite a few of the locations are very similar, but saying that they do capture the design of Alien very well, feeling very much like the 70's sci-fi future it portrayed. The characters are mostly well done, but lack better definition in the faces. They use a SSS shader, which makes them look a little waxy rather than human, and the facial animation again suffers from indistinctness. That said, the atmosphere is spot on, the story works well, and it's very tense. Trying to make it to save points gives you a fair amount to lose if you die, so you really want to stay alive! I can only play it in bursts :)

I think the Oculus Rift would up the tension level a tad, even using headphones with it was too much had to fall back to my 1200 watt 7.1 surround system. I'm stuck on mission 15 just can't get that security tuner thingy to work for me, my old fingers don't move that fast this may be a bug as the forums have reported a number of problems with the level, to me it looks like a timing thing, how fast you move through the level. I do like the the fact that you have to plan ahead in the game even though the AI can adapt to your strategy, the hiding spot you used last time may not work the next time.

And I have learned that in Riverside CA your neighbors can hear you scream!
