August 3, 2015


I finally got to sit down and try out Alien: Isolation. First off.... it's so scary! It's so cool to hear all the sounds and score that I'm so familiar with from the Alien films, and you get to play Ripley! I'm still adapting to how you play and what you do, it's pretty intense and you have to follow the storyline and I totally miss stuff all the time! But, on first try I successfully got dressed (woohoo!), and on the second try I was able to like... follow the story much more. This is going to be a lot of fun. Thank you so much to Suzie for the birthday present!!


I learned a lot playing a human paladin. I really like healing people. Being "good" with people who are elitist is almost impossible for me. My character had a deity that believed in her but she didn't believe in herself or that the deity was necessarily right about her. Twice Reg and I have had characters that died and both times, we perished fighting together. That if the future world of D&D (and this has to do with future campaigns at our store) only allows for you to be human and not a magic-user, then I do not want to play. I will play in Reg's world where I can talk to animals and turn into a bush.

Yay! That is so exciting Shannon and I am so glad you get to play Ripley! You are most welcome. I wondered if the game would be too freaky but it sounds like it might be fun which is awesome. :)

Late add from me and I might have screwed up your post Jamie, it looks weird. Sorry if I did!
