Adventures in getting killed by an alien in virtual reality
Seeing a Xenomorph in person, watching it hunting you, is one of the scariest moments Ive ever experienced in my long history of gaming. I had spent the past five minutes or so walking around what looked like a derelict spaceship, making sure to check my motion tracker as often as possible. I was told there might be a flame thrower I could find, but soon enough there was a blip.
I pulled up the motion tracker and leaned in to see it clearly. Yes, there was movement. Behind me. The lights flickered. I turned around, and there it was. The alien took a moment, looked at me, and then bolted in my direction. It held me down and hissed in my face. It felt like it I couldnt breathe, and I definitely couldnt move. The Xenomorph lost interest in my face and began to eat my brain.
Game over, man.
