Pre-Order Alien: Isolation and Get the Old Crew Back

Alien: Isolation is the latest game in the Alien franchise that, instead of going on the old “Aliens” movie with marines shooting their way through every situation, Isolation takes on a different approach.

Staying true to the original movie, including available technology found in the 1979 Ridley Scott film (old black and white CRT monitors, for example) Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game where your objective is to get from point A to B without the alien finding and killing you.

Sega has announced that if you pre-order the game your copy will be upgraded to the Nostromo Edition which includes bonus content called “Crew Expendable”. In this content, players choose one of three surviving crewmembers, only moments after Brett’s death in the jaws of the alien. As Ripley, Dallas or Parker, you can explore the Nostromo from the habitation deck down through the bowels of the ship in engineering figuring out how to lure the alien into the ship’s airlock.

If you pre-order from GameStop, you receive additional bonus content “Last Survivor” in which players play as Ripley trying to escape on the Narcissus. “On hearing the screams of Lambert and Parker, players must navigate their way back down through the Nostromo in order to activate the self-destruct sequence, before retracing their steps back to the Narcissus shuttle and their escape.”

Alien: Isolation will be available on October 7th, 2014 for the PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, XBox One, and XBox 360.

This is so wrong. If I had any intention of buying this game, that is now gone.
Pretty much every Alien(s) game is a disaster, where Isolation is getting a lot of hype at the moment. I am not saying Isolation will be a disaster to, the gameplay footage seen so far looks very promising. But the only way to tell is to wait until the game is actually on the shelves, and more reviews and hands-on are out there. I would like to see developers making demo’s of their games again, that was a great way to test drive a game. While reviews are ok, I tend to not use those to make my decision. Reviews are opinions from the writer, who of course tries to remain objective. But it happened to often that I like a game intensely, while the reviews are on average. It is all about personal preference and experience.

Every sensible gamer should not pre-order (any) game anymore. Check out Ron Whitaker article from yesterday about the subject.( http://www.gamefront.com/lets-get-rid-of-pre-order-bonuses/ )
This indeed has to stop.

P.s. If your worried you will miss out on these ‘extra’ mission when you don’t pre-order, exclusive means it will be a DLC at some point after official release. Which is another sad story, but for another time.
