Still Alive! Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

October 31, 2014

I’m impressed, Slant Six, I really am. It’s rare I find a game this bad. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is -impressively- bad. Stupendously so. It’s a walking monstrosity that could hold its own alongside Nemesis as a freak of nature the BSAA and S.T.A.R.S. could fight. This may top out as one of the […]

Tour the Terrifying: Top 8 Haunted Places in Gaming

October 26, 2014

Rather than take a long and likely uneventful walk on a local paranormal tour or watch yet another boring B-horror movie on Netflix, why not take a real test of fear this Halloween, one where the hauntings – and the goosebumps – are guaranteed? Fear is a place, and there’s no better way to get […]

Puppets and Destiny: There Are No Next-Gen Games (Yet)

October 23, 2014

We really love calling our new game releases “next-gen” and “new-gen”, don’t we? We flaunt the number of zombies on screen for Dead Rising 3 and the particle effects of inFamous: Second Son. We hear a lot of talk about how “only” this and that “can be done on PS4/Xbox One”. We’re told over and over […]

Still Alive! Dead Space 2: Outbreak

October 17, 2014

Oh boy, this one. This is a game that’s been repeatedly called out as not being unique and tacked-on. At many times, it’s been one of the poster children alongside Bioshock 2 as what makes “unnecessary multiplayer” (and we’ll be addressing Bioshock 2 in due time, have no doubt). Now I sit here, just a […]

October 17, 2014

Note: Due to some technical difficulties with Steam, I have been unable to complete this game prior to release. This post will concern my thoughts on my experiences with the game for the eighteen hours I have played thus far. I will update this post when I have completed the game.   Legend of Grimrock […]

Alien: Isolation Review

October 15, 2014

The case of Alien Isolation is a complicated one, as it both completely achieves the goal of being a great Alien game, but fails in some respects as a horror game. Yes, those two ideas can be separate and in this case, it is very clear that if it wasn’t for certain things “needing” to happen due to the IP, it might have been a better game altogether.

Out of the Abyss: Mental Illness in Horror Games

October 8, 2014

Madness has played a leading part in horror since long before the invention of digital entertainment, to the point where it has become a staple of the genre. Countless movies, books, themed attractions and campfire stories feature old standbys like haunted abandoned asylums, straight-jacketed inpatients screaming b***** murder at padded walls, and criminally insane convicts […]

Styx: Master of Shadows Review

October 7, 2014

Of Orcs & Men didn’t exactly light the world on fire when it released, but it definitely did leave an impression on those who played even just a portion of it. The mix of KotOR style combat, minor stealth mechanics, and quirky main duo lead to an interesting fantasy RPG with bite. Unfortunately, it never […]
