You always need a spooky forest
Killing Floor 2's last major update brought two new maps, two new perks, and all sorts of necessary improvements. It's still in Steam Early Access, and each chunk of new content is bringing it closer to full release.
'I believe we should produce titles that bring out the horror'
Capcom producer Masachika Kawata has asked fans to "stay tuned" for more news about Resident Evil 7.
Talking to Dengeki PlayStation magazine (via Siliconera), Kawata said, "We're currently not at a state to talk about it… but please stay tuned."
Digital submersion is my one true fear
The ocean has never been particularly terrifying to me. Contemplating on a beach and staring at the blue sprawl fills me with a sense of calm, not horror. Snorkeling in a Hawaiian crater was one of the awe-inspiring mome...
The other Romero's son, that is
Romero's Aftermath, George. C. Romero's MMO survival horror game, releases today in open beta.
Film director George C. is the son of George A., who you'll know from feisty romcoms like Night of the Living Dead.
The game offer...
Make a gun skin! Or a dumb hat!
Tripwire Interactive is hosting a Killing Floor 2 competition via Polycount called Guns 'n Gear. Anyone interested can create a cosmetic item or gun skin and attempt to win money/dosh.
This contest began on Septembe...
Mass Effect + BioShock + Ex Machina
P.A.M.E.L.A. is the hot new indie game taking Steam Greenlight charts by storm, and it looks absolutely gorgeous. Surprisingly the game has a grand total of six artists working on it, according to this in-depth intervie...
There's a chance Allison Road can fill the heartbreaking void left by P.T., and I sure am rooting for it. But it's going to be a real challenge for the small team at Lilith to meet such lofty expectations.
The game's Kickstar...
What makes us human? Is it our physical body, our intellect, our spirit -- or all of the above? These questions permeate an underwater world where everything’s gone mad. The machines have lost it, taking over all that w...
'It's about your birth.'
Silent Hill 3 is a mean-spirited game, but then that was always the point. In order to value her future, Heather Mason is dragged, kicking and screaming, through the muck and mire of her past. Yes, she’s given the tools...
Hope you like multiplayer in your horror
Capcom has announced Biohazard Umbrella Corps for the PlayStation 4 at the Tokyo Game Show.
The game is an online competitive shooter, and it will be released to celebrate the Resident Evil’s 20th anniversary. We’ll give you the trailer as soon as it becomes available.
So, a competitive multiplayer shooter to celebrate a survival horror series’ 20th year. Weird.
Frictional compares the two
In June, I told myself to stay away from watching and subsequently covering any more trailers for SOMA. That was going well -- until today. Curiosity got the better of me, but at least this "Environments" trailer is abstract ...
Look at him run!
The Resident Evil series is no stranger to silly modes, and I'm glad to see Capcom continue down that path with Wesker Mode in next year's Resident Evil 0 HD remaster. Uroboros? Uroboros.
In the new mode, Albert Wesker fills in for Billy Coen and oh my god, his sprint is hilarious.
Resident Evil Remaster and RE 0 HD
Rejoice PS4, PC, and Xbox One owners: Resident Evil Remaster and the upcoming Resident Evil 0 HD are coming to your big shiny gaming machines as Resident Evil Origins Collection.
The new collection, which packages the pa...
PS4s are too scared to load it
The PlayStation Network is preventing some early adopters of Until Dawn from playing the game.
According to reports on reddit, most gamers are able to download the game without incident, but on launch, they're info...
Fans speculated that Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water would be a digital-only release on the Wii U eShop in North America. Unfortunately, they were correct. Nintendo confirmed its launch plans (October 22, $49.99) in a 2015...
FIRE AND BLOOD
Killing Floor 2 has been available through Steam Early Access for almost exactly four months. Upon its initial release, I was already surprised by how fluid and satisfying the cooperative horror shooter felt. Cleaving my...
*Sigh* You won't listen
I urge you, Until Dawn kids: Don't go on that winter getaway. It seems like a lot of fun, but it won't be. It's not all drinking and partying and sexing.
There will be a scary guy in a scary mask doing scary things. Your fri...
Well, just 'Zombi' now
To date, ZombiU has been one of the best (and only) non-Nintendo published Wii U exclusives. It has turned into something of a cult classic, as many have praised the way that it felt more like a survival game and resiste...
In the nicest way possible
A bit of bad news with a silver lining, Capcom's recent announcement of an official remake of Resident Evil 2 has indeed put the kibosh on Resident Evil 2 Reborn; a promising looking fan remake made with Unreal 4. On the...
It's not impossible
Since the beginning of time, sexy teens have been going out into the woods to do naughty things and get slaughtered. It's the circle of life. This time-honored tradition is well-documented in many films of the 1980s.
Party like it's 1999
After spending a couple of years writing for relyonhorror.com, I became fairly jaded with horror games in general. You can only cover so many games where you explore dark corridors with naught but a flashlight while watching&...
This isn't your dad's Rare
Rare Replay is available now and includes unlockable videos of canceled games with concept art, stories, and gameplay that have never been show to the public. Unlocking the videos means completing various challenges and...
Is it too late?
Early Wii U owners should know all about ZombiU. Depending on who you ask, it was a decent to great zombie survival game and a much-needed one at that. Years later, Ubisoft is bringing it to other platforms -- PC, PlayStatio...
This guest has overstayed its welcome
Well, it's been a few months, time for another Five Night at Freddy's game I suppose.
I don't like to be cynical. I don't volunteer to review games, and pay for them out of my own pocket, hoping that they'll disappoint me and...
Surprise! But not really!
The new and almost certainly not final installment of Five Nights at Freddy's has released a couple of weeks earlier than expected. It's available for $7.99 on Steam.
Given the events of the last game, Five Nights at Freddy's...
Basically Resident Evil 4, playable soon
Italian studio Invader Games is coming up on its summer release of its non-profit remake project, Resident Evil 2 Reborn. The playable alpha missed its October 2014 release, but is now in Unreal 4 instead of Unity, and will ...
In our special place...
It started with a worried look in mirror dimly lit. For Silent Hill 2, this was a statement of intent; a progression in not only hardware, but also in narrative. Out went the B-movie horror about gods and the occult, and in i...
It obviously didn't
The Last of Us was the game that proved to a lot of people that Naughty Dog could handle a mature narrative. Its writing explores the human condition and examines the child/guardian protective emotional bond. Upon relea...
Five Nights at Anthrocon DLC imminent
Love it or hate it, Scott Cawthon’s Five Nights at Freddy’s series has been a huge success, and now we know when the fourth game in series is coming.
Thanks to an email sent to YouTuber Dawko by Cawthon and posted...
A long, long way
Today, Capcom took a trip down memory lane, reanimating some old footage of a Nintendo 64-era Resident Evil 0 prototype originally shown at Tokyo Game Show in 1999.
The following year, the publisher reworked the project for n...
