Yes this game needs more love. It could be a killer VR app too if they tried. We need sequels
I doubt it but i would be so happy to be wrong. It's my favorite horror game ever but there are still things a sequel could improve upon. Like making me care about the NPCs i use as a diversion for the Xenomorph.
I hope we can disable the film grain filter. On PC it was possible but i don't know if you could do it on consoles.
Feral Interactive were already the ones that did the Linux and Mac OS port and given the switch is mostly BSD based (running on an ARM processor sure but that doesn't change much of anything really ) it was a pretty straight forward affair to perform using the Linux port as a jumping point . So it was a no brainer for both Sega , Creative Assembly and Feral Interactive here .
The only hate I've seen for the game was from that one review that seemed to have been playing it by running around like an idiot and complaining they kept getting caught.
Actually horror games are more immersive playing in handheld mode with headphones. What you, having the screen right in front of you, was almost like that.I loved the game but part of that was due to playing it sat very close to a relatively large TV (2-3 feet from a 42-inch screen) in the dark with headphones on. So immersive! I can't imagine it being as effective in portable mode, but I'm happy that the option will be there for anyone who does want to play it that way.
Gyro is not that important in this game. The few combat sequences are mostly reliant on the flamethrower, and the guns aim is random anyway.
