We recently gained a new team member with iAlwaysSin now doing two livestreams a week for us, Samsai put together some clips from her first attempt and it's glorious.

I decided her first playthrough should be none other than the rather scary Alien Isolation [Steam]. Safe to say she's not my biggest fan after getting her to do this!

Samsai might have possibly messed with the follow notifications for a while...

iAlwaysSin will be livestreaming on our Twitch channel every Tuesday and Thursday night, starting around 19:30 UTC.

You can find all our livestreams on our schedule page, where you can also submit your own!

We may roll out an invitation to another Linux gamer to livestream on our channel once a week soon, if you're interested feel free to send me a PM, but you will need a good quality microphone and the stream would need to have high quality video (so good internet and a good PC required).

I actually took this stream halfway and iAlwaysSin looked sooo moved by the game I almost laugh. Then I played Alien Isolation for the first time with a headset... iAlwaysSin, if you read this comment, sorry I made fun of you.

Anyway, welcome to the team iAlwaysSin! Can't wait to see the rest of your playthrough ^^

SEE! It's as scary as it looks and with a headset its the worst!
Nah its cool, you making fun of me isnt as bad as a whole video pointing out that I missed the biggest troll ever!

I should get back into this game at some point. Possibly on an easier mode (if there is one!). I found the sections with the alien lurking about the place too frustrating and stopped playing.

This level of imersion is simply fantastic... really fun to watch. Keep up the good work!

Quoting: GuestAnd then I got to medical and I switched to easy, so I could finish the mission. Didn't switched back to normal, finished the game on easy.

I'm pretty sure that's where I am now, trying to get a trauma kit. I'd been playing on hard up until this point, I just never thought of changing the difficulty way back when. Normal seems to be a lot more forgiving, though the alien still seems to teleport in when you reach the trauma kit room.

I'm playing on hard and streaming it again tonight...
These comments fill me with no hope and possible scares and gamer rage!

Exactly... Or a quicksave option... Crawling 99% perfectly done, only to get caught in the last 1% before the save. Stuck at the medlab :-(.
I am just to big of a pussy to die.

Quoting: GuestSo yeah, just lower the difficulty and enjoy the game. If you like it, you'll be back anyway. ;)
How can you lower the difficulty if you are already playing it on tourist mode :-(.

Well, I ended up completing it. I still got the achievement for completing the game on the hardest difficulty setting despite switching to normal.

Managed to miss several ID tags and Nostromo logs despite backtracking and searching everywhere I could every time I got a new cutting/hacking upgrade. :(

Still, I enjoyed the rest of the game. The trauma kit section was the only ragequit-inducing section. Good luck, Sin, if you're still playing.
