Alien: Isolation brings back Ripley and the original cast with preorder DLC

Most of the original cast of 1979’s Alien have reunited to voice their roles in two missions Alien: Isolation is offering as a pre-order DLC incentive.

Sigourney Weaver returns as Ellen Ripley, who will be playable in two missions set in the events of the original film. Tom Skerritt also voices Dallas and Yaphet Kotto returns as Parker, and both of these characters also will be playable in the module, called “Crew Expendable.” The different characters will have a different perspective in the events, and carry a different loadout.

The Twisted Trees of Slope Point, New Zealand

Slope Point is at the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand. The air streams loop the ocean, unobstructed for 2000 miles, until they reach Slope Point causing incredibly strong winds. In fact, the winds are so strong and persistent here that they perpetually warp and twist the trees into these crooked, wind-swept shapes. 

Slope Point is generally uninhabited, except for the herds of sheep that graze the land. There are no roads leading here, however backpackers regularly make the short 20-minute walk to see the fascinating tree formations that only Mother Nature could create. However there is no public access during the lambing season from September to November.

Nature makes art too.

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!
