Chatty Twitch Highlights 38: Alien: Isolation and a great big convoy

The Xenomorph doesn't mess around, as Sapiens finds out that you can't escape by running around a table like in cartoons. Plus, this week's Battlefield 4 Shackbattle and the continuing travels of the Shack Convoy.


With the big time fall releases continuing to pour in, you can beat the Chatty community is taking a good look at them and put their exploits up on Twitch. This week, we check out Sapiens and one of the highlights from his excursion into Alien: Isolation. Spoiler alert: It doesn't go well for him. Also, we check out the weekly Battlefield 4 Shackbattle, as well as the continuing travels of the Shack Convoy in Euro Truck Simulator 2.

Warning: Some clips may contain NSFW language.

Alien: Isolation

No need to worry about the repeat of another Colonial Marines mess. Alien: Isolation is the real deal, offering the kind of tension that an Alien game should offer. Many have tried and failed to escape the relentless Xenomorph and Sapiens is the latest victim. Watch as he tries (and fails) to hide from the extraterrestrial terror.

Battlefield 4

Now that Battlefield 4 is seeing a Shack revival, thanks to its fall patch, it's time to once again highlight the weekly Battlefield 4 Shackbattle. Watch as everyone plays through the game with no trouble at all. (Well, except maybe for some occasional issues with Hemtroll, which can be troublesome since he's the one capturing the footage. Yikes!)

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

          Much like Amnesia, this is one game I can't play because I'd probably get a heart attack from the intro

            Just out of curiosity for people who have played both how does Alien compare to Amnesia?

              Alien is an amazing experience. It is spread into tense and then relaxed moments just like Amnesia, but the largest difference is any of the enemies you can actually affect. There are things that will frighten off the Alien (temporarily).

              The Alien's awareness is well teleprompted to you, so you can understand what it is thinking. However, once the Alien is active, it slows down your progress significantly. So it's kinda annoying, especially over a 20-hour long game.
