Feel like giving The Thing a go now. Wait, why does Andrew Curtis' face look familiar to me?

Oh shit, he was about to work on that Realm adventure game that I highlighted here a while ago but wasn't successful. And he shows up in that game's kickstarter developer diary.

The Hum looks to be the first alien invasion game? At least I hope so. The alien walking around reminded me of this scene in Signs:

If Thomas Grip played Alien Isolation like I did, he'd know that how the developers are trying to avoid the "death = relief" problem by making the xenomorph AI dynamic. I died twice in that demo and because of the AI's unpredictability, it made each trek to progress further into the game that more tense.

When you get more time to look at the enemy, I'm still worried that I'll die so even if I got a good look at its intricacies, I'm no less scared of its abilities.

Grip's idea of having the story and exploration tie into the monster is interesting and I can't wait for SOMA either. I've seen developers be critical of other games in their own genre and I like them challenging each other, but sometimes it doesn't pan out in the final game because of certain limitations so I hope SOMA proves he can walk the walk, too.

Get out of here @me3639! Hehe, thanks for the really detailed impressions. Was wary of this after hearing it'd be an MMO but at least it sounds like it doesn't play like shit.

So, this was featured on the latest Unprofessional Fridays.

Also, apparently Brad looks at the forums. Thought he just hung around on neogaf :P

If you're going to say Patrick is a hipster you might as well go full bore and say he's a SJW (somehow apparently that's a bad thing to some weirdos).

@cinnase7en: Syndicate was awesome, people with good taste enjoyed it. I honestly don't know what the 'cons' of that game might be apart from a weak story. It did the impossible, it took a first person shooter, and added some completely innovative and fresh ideas to it.

I'm too lazy right now to read what comment you're responding to, but I wholeheartedly agree with this. Now, I don't consider myself as one with good taste but Syndicate is something really special; in a good way.

And it's nice to see ex-Starbreeze dudes doing Wolfenstein The New Order which looks to be the best shooter of 2014. Them dudes are talented, no matter in which company.

Man, I hadn't even put that together. I have had mixed feelings about what they've shown so far, but this revelation makes me a lot more interested in that game. Thanks.

Mixed even after that "Stealth or Mayhem" trailer?
