QuakeCon to host a blood drive inspired by The Evil Within

What are some of the pleasant activities you picture when you think of going to a gaming convention? Getting a first glimpse at a game that few have seen before? Collecting enough swag to double your luggage size? Donating bl...

Upcoming Doom sneak peek is only meant for QuakeCon attendees

The teaser trailer for Doom (4) didn't do much for me, but I'm looking forward to the long-awaited reveal. We'll see more of the game at this year's QuakeCon, set to take place in Dallas, Texas from July 17 - 20, or so I thou...

This Fallout 3 speedrun sets a new world record

Speedrunner BubblesDelFuego completed a new world record Fallout 3 run in a ridiculous 23 minutes and 55 seconds, beating out his old record of 24 minutes and 20 seconds. I spent more time than that on my first playthrough r...

The classic Cyberdemon receives a next-gen makeover in this Doom teaser photo
The classic Cyberdemon receives a next-gen makeover in this Doom teaser
by Brittany Vincent

Oh, sweet Cyberdemon. It's been far too long since I danced with thee. And now you're looking so very...refreshed. You've had a facelift. Even though you're a little bit older than the last time we met, you're still just as ravishing as you were when we first crossed paths.

Bethesda's latest Doom teaser may be short, but it's a heaping helping of the retro-fabulous goodness we can hope to see as more details regarding the upcoming Doom project come down the pipeline. I don't know about you, but I'm itching to see what an updated cacodemon looks like.

Morrowind kept Bethesda from going out of business

A lot of people think they do their best work with their back up against the wall. That's the narrative Bethesda's Todd Howard is going with. In an interview with GameStar, Howard talked about how Morrowind was basically the...

BattleCry's reveal trailer chops off a perfectly good head

Have you heard about Bethesda's newly announced BattleCry -- a free-to-play, PC-only, 32-player, team action combat game? That question's a test, because I wrote a preview about it, and we all know that you should be re...

BattleCry is Bethesda's new free-to-play multiplayer action game

In October of 2012, Bethesda Softworks opened a new development studio named BattleCry in Austin, Texas. At the time, we didn't know what the team was tasked with, but certain job openings hinted toward a free-to-play multipl...

Oh, the horror! The Evil Within delayed two months

The Evil Within is staying hidden in the shadows a little bit longer than anticipated. However, there aren't any surprise jump scares here; we know exactly when to expect it. Originally slated for a August 26 release, Be...

The Evil Within seems like it forgot the 'horror' in 'pure survival horror' photo
The Evil Within seems like it forgot the 'horror' in 'pure survival horror'
by Brett Makedonski

All too often, survival horror titles perform poorly in some areas, but it's somehow acceptable because that's the trade-off for being survival horror. If the experience is tense and scary, it seems like everything else is forgivable. That's a very important "if" however, because if it doesn't deliver on the horror front, you're suddenly left with a game that just performs poorly.

After having almost two hours of hands-on time with The Evil Within, it's perilously close to falling into this category.

As a disclaimer of sorts, I was thrust into two levels at varying points of the story. Chapter 4 and Chapter 8 were the two sections shown, and both were ineffective at providing any scares, any true adrenaline-pumping moments, or really anything even noteworthy. For what it's worth, maybe I was missing the context of the previous parts of the game that might give others an overarching sense of fear. As isolated incidents, they were just dull.
