That's when I switched difficulty. Do you have a noisemaker?

Great couple of sessions recently, after 'finally' dispatching the pesky xenomorph (still about a third of the game to go, so we'll see). Still plenty of tension and danger, but relief from the ball-busting unpredictability and invulnerability of the alien.

It's over! We had some good times (headshotting androids with the bolt gun in the reactor), some bad times (mission 16 really pissed me off), some lols (walking into a new room and seeing a stack of boxes collapse for no reason, thinking 'lol glitch' then getting jumped by the facehugger that was hiding in them.) The last few missions really dragged and I kind of wanted it to be over, then then when I was done I wanted more! Still got the dlc to take a look at.

Cannot conceive of playing it on nightmare difficulty.

haven't played it since i got stuck. maybe i need to level down and just jump the dude with my crowbar.

i never stuck with the dlc. seemed insanely hard and the lack of save points bugged me too much

quit this awhile back but i'm determined to finish it. bumped the difficulty down to novice to get past the stupid alien randomness. i swear they used a rng to determine whether the alien sees/hears you or not. the dizzying backdrop to the airlock part was really cool

finished. just not my type of game as i was horrible at it. u ppl doing nightmare difficulty are crazy. but awesome game all-around. shd prob win some awards, at least for environment or sound design.

four years pass...

I have wanted to play this since it was announced for consoles initially but now its on Switch, I took the plunge.

Its basically a cowering simulator...

I like it but if it gets any harder than the first alien encounter, I can see myself noping out of this pretty quick.

Spoiler: it will get harder than the first alien encounter.

I stopped playing it on the PS4 after a while, not because it wasn't any good but in a way because it was too good!
