I got my dick destroyed in Outlast 2

The original Outlast had a nice combination of jump scares and actual horror; someone would pop out and scare you, before giving chase as you ran away and hid from them. You'd hear footsteps, breathing, and see enemies stand inches awa...

Outlast 2 is teasing a reckoning

Last we heard, Red Barrels was aiming for a fall 2016 release for Outlast 2. Assuming that's still the case, and based on this unsettling backwards-audio teaser video for the horror game, I bet we'll start to see a lot more of it soon -- s...
