Is this really the solution to P.T.'s final puzzle?

Hideo Kojima's interactive teaser P.T. has been a hot topic of discussion for the past week and a half. While part of the talk has been centered around the great experience and the reveal of Silent Hills, many have just...

Atari is rebooting the Alone in the Dark franchise

Horror this, horror that. 2014 is going to be known for the year the horror genre really took off again. Presumably because games like Slender Man, Outlast, and more have made some of the bigger companies realize th...

Looks like Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is going to be a thing

A listing for Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has been spotted on Xbox.com. Gamer In A Box discovered a box art image, along with a single screenshot. Capcom has yet to release any news of a new game, but it does make sense that...

There's plenty of death in this hour-long The Evil Within video

Based on this hour-long play session of The Evil Within, I'm not expecting to be particularly scared by the game, but I am expecting to die quite a few times. Given its limited checkpoints, the fear of failure and having to ...

Until Dawn has hundreds of endings and thousands of branches photo
Until Dawn has hundreds of endings and thousands of branches
by Dale North

Supermassive Games' Pete Samuels and Will Byles held a behind-closed-doors session during gamescom to give us a better look into upcoming PS4 horror title Until Dawn. During that session they explained how their PS3 Move-only campy teen horror title transformed into a PS4 adult horror, starring top-tier actors and featuring high-end technologies.

Until Dawn is all about player choice, offering thousands of play paths that lead to hundreds of possible endings. A lot of this is tied to one of the game's mechanics called the Butterfly Effect.

Kojima expected that it would take a week to solve the mystery of P.T.

Kojima's interactive teaser P.T., which we now know is the playable teaser for Silent Hills, was solved in half a day by curious players who persevered all the way to the end. But as Kojima himself revealed during today's pre...

Until Dawn is my kind of horror

I am a little baby when it comes to horror movies. I just can’t. I can’t sit and force myself to stare at a screen that will make me scream and flinch. That’s not fun to me! The opposite is true when it com...

Alien: Isolation is haunting and uncompromisingly scary photo
Alien: Isolation is haunting and uncompromisingly scary
by Alessandro Fillari

Though it was initially seen as "Jaws-in-space," the legacy for Alien is certainly much more pristine than the one with the giant shark. Originally released in 1979, the first Alien would eventually become a much-loved horror film that spawned a major movie franchise. And while the sequels would get more attention and prominence among fans, the original still holds a special place in the hearts of fans.

After the release of some rather disappointing Alien titles, and with the Cameron interpretation of Alien as the de-facto standard for the franchise, the developers at Creative Assembly believed it was about time fans went back to the roots of the series. Just a week before gamescom, Sega invited Destructoid out to get some quality time with Alien: Isolation, and to speak with the game's creative lead, Alistair Hope. During our time, we got to learn just how different horror is when faced off with something out of your league.

The next Silent Hill is coming from Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro photo
The next Silent Hill is coming from Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro
by Jordan Devore

Oh that Hideo Kojima.

During Sony's gamescom 2014 press conference earlier today, there was bizarre, eye-catching announcement for something called "P.T." which was said to be playable immediately for PS4 via PlayStation Network. It was shown so quickly that many of us didn't think much of it. Whoops.

Turns out that P.T. is a playable teaser for the next Silent Hill from, get a load of this, designer Hideo Kojima and director Guillermo del Toro. The game -- which seems to be named Silent Hills, presumably because that's how Kojima rolls -- stars actor Norman Reedus.

The ruse was figured out by Twitch streamer SoapyWarpig, whose playthrough of P.T. can be seen here. Skip to around 1:16 for the unveil or simply take a look at the .gif below. As someone who hasn't been much into the series in recent years, this is one hell of a way to win me back.

Yep, Until Dawn is 'horror reinvented' on PS4

After all of those icy, blood-filled teasers out of Sony, we finally have our confirmation that they were leading up to Until Dawn. Originally announced back in 2012 for PlayStation 3, it's essentially a videogame take on sl...

Sony teases the reinvention of horror on PS4

It started with a bloody snowflake. Then there was a bloody hatchet. Now there's a bloody window and a scary man chopping something or someone. Apparently we'll be able to "watch horror reinvented on PS4" tomorrow at gamesco...

Which of these alternate The Evil Within covers do you like best?

I tend to prefer alternate game cover art over the "real" thing and The Evil Within is no exception. Publisher Bethesda has three covers for us to vote on and whichever piece wins will be used on the inside sleeve for the lau...
