Almost as nonsensical as Catwoman in high heels!
Our Editor in Chief Jill Pantozzi loved Alien: Isolation, but it (and I quote) "scared the shit out of her." Since I am a little horror movie baby and would never sleep again if I played it, I am seriously comforted by Neebs Gaming's terror-proof addition to Alien: Isolation - just throw really squeaky shoes on the alien. Problem solved. Fear neutralized.Read More
