That title isn’t exactly clear. You can hide in Alien: Isolation. It’s encouraged, in fact, as it can provide a chance to evade a xenomorph that is getting smarter by the second.

NBA Live tries to capitalize on NBA 2K15 server issues

Touting that your server works isn’t the most ringing endorsement for your game. It’s not unlike promising that the game will boot up when you start it.
