I've been wondering what type of alien it is. I've been thinking its a drone I'm not so sure though.
Out of shadow and darkness I shall strike you down.

It's supposed to be the original so it can't be anything but a drone.

It's a Giger Drone, his original monster. You can tell due to the transparent smooth dome.

Its part of the reasons I appreciate the game, as it stays true to the ALIEN world, monster and all.

^ It doesn't, though. The Isolation drone has shitty fingers, a shitty tail and a sight cone.

This is true, although the original Drone appeared to have a similar vision cone.

I say this mainly because of the scene where Ripley peers across the corner, and sees the Alien. If the Alien didn't have a cone of vision, then I would have seen (and killed her) immediately.


Also, at least it keeps the capabilities of the Alien. Its not like ALIENS or any of the other games where Aliens appear to only be a threat in numbers.

Its after she activates the Nostromo's self destruct, followed by her trying to turn it off.

So, aliens have a blind spot?

Interesting...

Yeah. I'm pretty sure the alien in Isolation is a drone, albeit bigger. Perhaps, it's host was a 2 meter or taller man?

Has to be a drone, only they have those smooth heads.

But it seems really big to be a drone at the same time. But I never played the game before so what do I know.
They say we are the prey. Not when I'm in the wall right behind you!

@Argonian

According to old conventions (I seriously don't remember where they came from, because I learned about this stuff over 10 years ago) no. It is generally accepted that Xenomorphs don't have eyes and therefore do not rely on a sense that is as limited as sight. Supposedly, Xenomorphs get information from all directions at once and are able to find other living things at great distances and beyond any number of walls.

...

I think the best part is that we DON'T know and that we can theorize. It's never stated in canon, so its up to us.


Personally, I like to think it "sees" or "hears" us in an abstract sense we cannot understand.

@DW: That theory also works really well with the original Giger design. The head on the Giger Drone has little to no room to actually rotate, nor can it comfortably look upward, so it would be impractical for it to have eyes like ours.

It does have eye sockets, but those are decorative, probably.

I like to think that the "child" of a Xenomorph is actually the process of rapid evolution, and that the skull hadn't been phased out yet. Much like our pinky finger, or our appendix.

Actually, it would be cool to have an Alien headcannon thread. Time to post!!
