‘Alien: Blackout’ Trailer: Don’t Look Now, But There’s a Xenomorph in Your Phone

Through the Looking-Glass of Black Mirror's 'Bandersnatch'

None Spoilers ahead. In 1983 I played an arcade game called Dragon's Lair. In what was already a video-game cliché, a knight named Dirk the Daring attempted to rescue Princess Daphne. But the selling point was not the story—it was that it looked like a cartoon. Meanwhile, on my Atari back at home, the similarly-themed Adventure featured a protagonist who was literally just a dot. After losing a week's worth of quarters within a minute, though, I realized that Dragon's Lair was not really a game...
