The Steam Project – Getting Into Character in Aliens vs. Predator (2010)
I’m back from Cannes! I have plenty of exciting news to share, and photography will be along shortly. Anyway, in the meantime here’s the latest Steam Project post. It’s about Aliens vs. Predator and getting into character in games. Do you ever find yourself doing that? Let me know on Twitter.
You see, the Spring of 2006 saw substantial time spent in my local LAN cafe playing AVP2. We’d all get into character playing Evacuation as we tried to survive. One would play as the Predator, meticulously planning their attack, slowly picking off the Marines. The others would blind-fire and team kill in the fear-induced panic. It was marvellous and while it was slower paced compared to other games of the time, we were all Aliens / Predator fans and let imaginations run wild.
