Holy crap, there’s no fire button in Alien Isolation. The alien, all three metres of it, lurches towards me after reacting to my footsteps, narrowing my options with every sickening thud of its tread. Using every bit of FPS training I have, I mash all the shoulder buttons on the DualShock 4, hoping for an ironsight. A super-soaker. Something. But those skills won’t save me here – I was never supposed to kill the alien, just survive. I got reckless, and now without any means of defence I’m going to get dead. I can’t stop grinning with delight.
