This is it, part 6 – the finale of my Alien: Isolation gameplay stream! In the final two hours we escape the Alien hoard that was released in part 5, blow up some stuff, and get multiple climaxes, as is the norm in the Alien series.
HO. LEE. CRAP. The game really opens up as we’re re-introduced to the xenomorph in one of the most tense, exciting, and gratifying parts of the game: the nest. We also get lots of android killing, reactor exploding, and – as a longtime Alien fan – a little scene near and dear to my heart: a cameo by Sigourney Weaver herself, as she gives Amanda a bit of closure.
I continue my exploration of the Sevastopol with one of the longest streams I’ve done in a long time: a six hour marathon! This episode contains some amazing moments in the game, with some Alien series eyecandy, throwbacks, and fan-service galore. We get to explore LV-426, mess about with a Mother-like computer system, and even explore the derelict spacecraft. This section easily made this one of my favorite entries in the Alien, and shows me what could have been had the property been handled correctly after Aliens.
We continue with the Halloween Survival Horror Stream-fest with Alien: Isolation, part 3! In this episode, I find myself getting deeper into the Sevastopol as the xenomorph has officially tagged me for snacktime.
I continue my survival horror month with part 2 of my Alien: Isolation gameplay stream! In this episode, I finally get to meet the alien, and some nasty Working Joe androids. I die a WHOLE lot as I get use to the mechanics of the game (do not run anywhere EVER unless you’re being chased). I learned pretty quickly that panicking will get you killed.
This is what a tech-nerd-gamer’s home theater setup can look like when he/she is not happy with his/her current wiring setup. Hell.
I have a problem. Well, several problems, really, in my ongoing quest to streamline and simplify this whole videogame streaming thing. So, I thought I’d show you, the world, the kinds of trials and tribulations a gamer has to go through in order to achieve the impossible: hooking up multiple consoles with the best (or close to best) visual quality possible while making sure all said consoles are permanently ready to stream. Given the multiple generations of technology and hookups being used, this project has moved from “Wouldn’t this be cool,” to “!@#%.”
For the past couple of years, I’ve seen many friends in the gaming community take to Twitch. I’ve always been enamored with it, but never went so far as to create my own stream. But I figure, screw it: I play videogames on a daily basis, why not use Twitch while gaming? Like, all the time?
