Shout out to P.T.

P.T. scared me more than any other videogame


Don't look upstairs
Apr 28
There was a moment in P.T. that terrified me. I mean truly terrified me. Between the endlessly looping hallway and the haunting cries of a disfigured fetus in a sink, I knew strange things were afoot. It's a disorienting game... read

Can a game on mobile fill the gap left in our hearts by Silent Hills?


Let's find out together!

Riiiight

When there's this much money to be made, the series must go on. Developer Scott Cawthon is teasing Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter with a horrifying image I'd like to erase from my mind. I don't know what I'm loo... read
Should've taken that job at the fireworks factory
I didn’t have the greatest of starts with Uncanny Valley. After only 15 minutes of play time, I’d wandered into one of the “bad” endings seemingly by accident. On my second attempt, I encountered so ma... read feature

Remedy plans to Wake up Alan once more


Developer says horror sequel may still return

I hope you like sewers, kid
When I first approached Resident Evil: Revelations 2, I was fairly cautious. I had been burned many times by Resident Evil games in the past, but having played through Episode 1 and 2, most of my concerns were alleviated. At this point, I think I can heartily recommend Revelations 2 as a whole, even if Episode 3 drags momentarily. read feature
