#SDCC14: Go Hands On with Alien: IsolationNo one is ready to forgive the powers-that-be for Aliens: Colonial Marines, but it’s safe to say most of us are still curious about Alien: Isolation. Now, at the San Diego Comic-Con, Sega is giving you a chance to go one-on-one with the game for yourself.

From the Press Release
From the outer reaches of space to a fantastic ancient land, SEGA fans will get a chance to see the hottest games of the year at San Diego Comic-Con International.

SEGA is pulling out all the stops, giving fans their first chance for hands-on demos of Alien: Isolationâ„¢, Sonic Boomâ„¢: Rise of Lyric and Sonic Boomâ„¢: Shattered Crystal, and a variety of ways to experience these franchises, both onsite and off.

Alien: Isolation will be showcased in amazing, spine-tingling fashion at the FUTURE US booth (#241) with game demos in a custom-designed, giant-sized Alien egg pod. Sonic Boom will have a presence at the Archie Comics booth (#2842).

SEGA is also taking its presence to the next level this year, partnering with NERD HQ to give fans even more chances to have fun with some of the year’s most anticipated titles. SEGA will invade Nerd HQ from July 24-27 at Petco Park, just steps away from the Convention Center. Presented by The Nerd Machine, this popular fan-focused event provides guests an additional destination to interact with brand-new titles as well as hands-on opportunities with never-before-seen games. Nerd HQ will be the official home for SEGA throughout the show, spotlighting its games and hosting panels discussing the new titles.

Following overwhelming excitement from its debut at E3, the newest title of the Alien™ franchise, Alien: Isolation, will come to life and showcase the true meaning of fear with an immersive gaming experience. A replica version of the iconic egg from the Alien series will be onsite at the FUTURE US booth, immersing gamers into a solitary gaming pod for a unique, chilling, fear-inducing event. Enter if you dare! To help extend the experience onsite, SEGA will also launch an Alien: Isolation Motion Tracker app available as a free download for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. The app recreates the motion tracker used in both the original film and new game which will allow fans to locate the Alien: Isolation game at Nerd HQ. Alien: Isolation is available worldwide on October 7, 2014, for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Windows PC, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

Published

Now here’s an audio book we can REALLY get behind! Entertainment Weekly is reporting that former “Dexter” star Michael C. Hall will be narrating the first ever unabridged recording of Stephen King’s Pet Sematary. Sometime’s audio is better!

Readers have been asking for this audiobook for a very long time,” Stephen King said in a statement. “I know the listening experience will be worth the wait with Michael as narrator.

We’re thrilled to finally bring Pet Sematary to King’s audiobook fans,” Simon & Schuster Audio president and publisher Chris Lynch added. “Michael C. Hall is a perfect match for this timeless story, which has long deserved an unabridged production.

The unabridged audiobook of Pet Sematary will be released by Simon & Schuster Audio on March 27. Speaking of Hall… you know he would make a pretty friggin’ good casting choice to play Victor Pascow in the upcoming Pet Sematary remake. Just sayin’.

Saw-inspired Game Play With Me Sets a Trap on Steam

Published

on

Saw fans have a lot to be happy about right now. In addition to Jigsaw being teased for Dead by Daylight, a new Saw-themed game called Play With Me has launched on Steam, and although it’s not officially connected with the franchise in any way, developer Airem promised that they created a videogame which looks and plays as though it were made by Jigsaw himself. As you can tell from the trailer and screenshots, the production values and overall quality of Play With Me appear to be considerably higher than most other indie horror games released on Steam, and you’ll probably be very happy to see that Airem took the time and effort to create stylized hand drawn environments rather than using purchased assets from the Unity Store.

The killer behind the sinister traps in Play With Me is known as the Illusion, with the player taking control of investigative journalist Robert Hawk as he tries to fight his way through a series of sick and twisted obstacles created by the lunatic. The voice acting in the trailer was a little cheesy, although we see at 1:09 that the player will be tasked with using a kitchen knife to cut open a dead body (presumably to retrieve an item hidden in the cadaver’s stomach), which is not an image you’ll be forgetting anytime soon.

IQ Publishing are offering a 15% discount off Play With Me for those who purchase the game before January 24, so Saw fans might want to mark that deadline in their calendars and purchase it from Steam before the time is up. After all, it can’t be worse than Konami’s awful official Saw videogames.
