Anonymous said: How excited are you for Alien: Isolation? :D
me, personally, not so much because I usually end up playing gmaes long after they first come out, haha. I tend to like more mindless shooty games too so I dunno if I can get into a slow placed survival horror.
My favorite Aliens game was the first 3d AvP game (Classic 2000 or something like that) but my favorite species to play was the Predator… whoops :(
“I always like to have these big long heads for the monster,” HR Giger told Famous Monsters magazine in 1979, “because I worked as an industrial designer. Every object needs to have a function. So if it has a long head there’s space for a long tongue. And I also gave his tongue teeth. I thought it was very good as a filmic device.”
But to take full advantage of the Alien’s retractable jaws the production needed an experienced engineer to provide the appropriate mechanisms. They decided to contact Carlo Rambaldi, an artist, effects man and one-time student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, Italy, whose earlier credits included Oscar winning work on the 1976 King Kong remake, and also later Spielberg’s E.T.
