The Shacknews video crew has been busy at this year's E3, but there was one spot that they couldn't miss. The video team's Andrew Zucosky and Sam Leichtamer headed over to check out the Oculus Rift and talk to Lucky's Tale developer Paul Bettner. After that, it was time to talk aliens. More specifically, it was time to talk Alien: Isolation.

For those unfamiliar with Lucky's Tale, Bettner describes it as a third-person adventure game designed exclusively for virtual reality.

As for Alien: Isolation, it proves to be every bit as frightening on Oculus Rift as it does when played conventionally.

This was Andrew and Sam's first go-around with the Oculus Rift's second development kit (DK2) and you can check out their impressions in the interview below.

And while it may be difficult to convey how Alien: Isolation plays out in virtual reality, Andrew's reaction in the video below should tell the whole story.
