The Evil Within PC updated with settings for 60 FPS and letterbox removal

Based on everything I've heard about The Evil Within, I genuinely do not know if I'll like the game. It could be one of my favorites this year, but I also wouldn't be shocked if I ended up hating it, all the same. I'll contin...

You're gonna lose your head over this The Evil Within glitch

"This is insane," are some pretty appropriate famous last words, especially when you're inside a carnival of horrors. That should've been the case for this player, but he took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. That's perseverance at its finest. That thing was just weighing him down, anyway.

Review: The Evil Within photo
Review: The Evil Within
by Chris Carter

I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Games, and the exact moment when my friend showed me God Hand.

All in all Mikami has worked on over 20 major games that have impacted the industry in some way. Even if The Evil Within is one of the worst in the bunch, it's still in good company.

Happy The Evil Within Day, you bloody goblins

Well, it's finally here -- the day when The Evil Within is upon us at last, and we get to see how this thing turned out. Not us, mind you; Bethesda wasn't so quick to forward us a copy for review. But, I can assure you ...

Nope, nope, nope! Go away smiley-masked dudes in The Evil Within

The first 30 seconds of this new The Evil Within trailer declares that the game's enemies are "demented, vicious, and deadly." Most of them look all three parts, but the ones with the smiley-face masks have really locke...

The Evil Within's minimum requirements on PC aren't a whole lot better

Last week, Bethesda shed some light on what it considered the recommended requirements to be to play The Evil Within on PC. After some chatter from the Internet about them being ridiculously high, Bethesda clarified by p...

These limited edition The Evil Within PS4s don't look very scary

Oooh, a building outline! Terrifying! You'll get a scary-ass building etched onto your PS4 if you're nabbing a Japanese Psycho Break (The Evil Within here in the west) limited edition release. It comes in Jet Black or Glacier...

The Evil Within has gone gold so let us hack up some bodies

I'm good and ready to jump into The Evil Within. So ready. The game has gone gold across all platforms, says Bethesda. That means that we're on track for the October 14 release of Shinji Mikami's latest survival horror, brin...

Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't
Dio in Skyrim: Part 3 - Don't "Taco" To Strangers
by Bill Zoeker

In the third part of our ongoing investigative series on what it would be like if heavy metal pioneer Ronnie James Dio was, in fact, a mage in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In this installment, we forget more lyrics, and Max's girlfriend gets home from work, only to find a very special surprise waiting for her. Is it tacos? 

(Yes. That's exactly what it is.)

Make sure to set aside a whole lot of hard drive space for The Evil Within

The Evil Within players might experience something slightly terrifying before ever booting up the game -- the amount of hard drive space that Shinji Mikami's latest creation takes up. Bethesda just released the system re...

Dio in Skyrim - What did you do the day Dio died? photo
Dio in Skyrim - What did you do the day Dio died?
by Bill Zoeker

Continuing our adventures through Skyrim; Max lays out the lengthy tale of what he did the day Dio died. Max's romp involved bottomless mimosas, a 40oz of malt liquor with a condom taped to it, and a deformed raccoon named 'Scary'. I don't really remember what I did that day. Probably listened to Dio.

Skyrim can only get better when you play it as Ronnie James Dio
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I decided to start a playthrough of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim as the late Ronnie James Dio, the heavy metal legend who had a music video that kinda looks like Skyrim. There's only one problem; Max can't remember any Dio lyrics correctly. It's okay though; we had good beer and bad tacos.

Free-to-play Quake Live rocket jumps onto Steam today

Good news, arena shooter fans, id Software's Quake Live is launching today on Steam. As far as I can tell, the Steam version will be the same Quake Live you're used to if you're already signed up. Even though it may not be a...

Watch Sebastian stumble around a lot in this Evil Within trailer out of TGS 2014

We're marching ever closer to the release of The Evil Within, which is headed to a retailer near you October 14. Bethesda's latest horror IP is shown off in the latest trailer here, straight out of TGS 2014. If you've been t...

Try not to think about cantaloupe while playing The Evil Within

I get such a kick out of seeing how things are made, especially when the people making said things are having a blast. This behind-the-scenes footage for The Evil Within is exactly what I'm talking about. We're given a glimp...

Rejoice, Europeans as you get to experience The Evil Within early photo
Rejoice, Europeans as you get to experience The Evil Within early
by Alasdair Duncan

As someone living in the UK, it's super frustrating to see notifications pop up on a console or Steam showing my North American friends playing new releases when I usually have to wait a few more days to get my hands on the same game. Well, Bethesda is being nice to us Europeans and releasing The Evil Within on October 14, the same date of the North American release. 

This includes all platforms, both physical and digital in Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, and India. If you're in Australia, New Zealand, and Japan, you'll still have a couple more days to wait for The Evil Within but I'm really happy by this move.

As I mentioned earlier, it's annoying to see my friends playing the latest games while I'm stuck waiting for the preferred retailer release date -- especially when it's a PC game.
