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...

Neverending Nightmares is eerily evocative, and set for release on September 26 photo
Neverending Nightmares is eerily evocative, and set for release on September 26
by Alessandro Fillari

It's certainly an exciting time to be an independent game developer. With the rise of Kickstarter allowing anyone with the knowledge, the skills, and an idea to find support, we're seeing a larger breadth of games come out that try something a bit different. One such game is Neverending Nightmares, and last year Jonathan Holmes wrote up a nice post about its Kickstarter campaign.

After a few ups and downs, the Kickstarter for this evocative horror title managed to make its funding goal. With release set for September 26, the developers are finally ready to unleash their survival horror game that's far more personal than most would realize. At PAX Prime 2014, I got the chance to check out an updated build and chat with some of the talent behind the game.

How not to survive in Alien: Isolation

From everything I've heard of Alien: Isolation, it's best not to run around when you think the coast is clear much less when the Xenomorph is right there in the same room. See: the trailer above. Creative Assembly plans to put out more of these videos throughout the month, and I have to imagine most will end with the demise of Amanda Ripley. It's just like playing the game, then.

Yuri Kozukata is your new Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden lead

Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden has an awful title as well as some decidedly bland box art, but the recent issue of Famitsu has revealed some details about the upcoming Japan-only (boo!) Wii U survival horror titl...

2D survival horror Uncanny Valley has a demo out now

Way back in April, we first heard about Uncanny Valley, and we all had a nice juvenile moment of pointing and snickering at pixelated medical diagrams of human genitalia. The trailer also showed slightly less funny stuff: da...

Help infect Raccoon City for free Resident Evil HD content

Capcom is promising "free additional content" for the Resident Evil remaster if we collectively manage to spread the T-Virus throughout Raccoon City, which isn't nearly as cool as it sounds. Really, there's just a website wi...

Alone in the Dark: Illumination looks like a horror game, alright

This concept art from Alone in the Dark: Illumination illustrate some of the environments in the game, and man, they're boring. From the grey concrete of an urban area to the grey scenic vistas of a mansion along the sho...

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.

Here are teasers for the previously announced Alone in the Dark and Haunted House reboots. Both are coming to PC this fall, so hopefully we'll have a few more spooky games to mess around with come Halloween time.

Dying Light has a sweet slide move

So I still need to actually play Vanquish in full, but that rocket knee slide? Good stuff. Dying Light's slide is not so cool, but with enough forward momentum, you could get a decent slide going.  I am only still ...

The Evil Within rocks some recognizable voice talent in this new trailer photo
The Evil Within rocks some recognizable voice talent in this new trailer
by Brittany Vincent

Ever wanted Watchmen's Jackie Earle Haley to taunt you? Now you can with Haley lending his voice as The Evil Within's main antagonist, Ruvik. But he's not the only recognizable celebrity to have climbed aboard The Evil Within's hype train.

Anson Mount (Cullen Bohannon, Hell on Wheels) takes on his very first voice acting role as lead protagonist Sebastian Castellanos, so you'll be hearing quite a bit from him.

And last but not least, Jennifer Carpenter, whom you likely recognize as Dexter Morgan's foul-mouthed and totally badass sister Debra Morgan, is taking on the role of Juli Kidman, Sebastian's partner (and Junior Detective). You'll be able to play as Juli with content released later on in the game's life cycle, so plan on ponying up if you're a big Carpenter fan.

Interesting choices as far as voice talent goes. Me? I'm just glad that we're looking past Nolan North these days.

The Grate Debate's final puzzle solution for P.T. works consistently

Earlier today we ran a story regarding the solution of P.T.'s final puzzle. After "looping" around the same hallway multiple times and getting to the "end," you must fulfill a certain set of requirements to see the teaser. T...
