Corpse Party returns to its PC birthplace with upcoming XSEED release

Corpse Party is one of my favorite horror series (even if it's a little tame at times) and I was thrilled to see it make its debut as a PSP cult hit back in 2011. Now, XSEED plans to bring the original Windows edition to life...

Corpse Party: Blood Drive will give you nightmares

I'm not exactly sure why I enjoy the Corpse Party series. The games give you likable casts of characters and just enough time to become attached to them, before ripping it all away and going to a very dark place.  Corps...

Corpse Party: Blood Drive website up, coming this year

The official website for Corpse Party: Blood Drive has gone live. Of corpse, it's creepy as heck, complete with eyes that follow you around and a school girl in uncomfortably suggestive peril. I wouldn't expect anything less ...

Review: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows photo
Review: Corpse Party: Book of Shadows
by Kyle MacGregor

The original Corpse Party follows a group of children's descent into hell. After performing a ritual, these students are unexpectedly transported to an alternate dimension and trapped in a cursed elementary school. Malevolent spirits await who are intent on toying with the kid's innocent minds and eviscerating their helpless bodies.

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows picks up where the last one left off. Well, sort of. The game tells seven standalone stories that range from backstories, to what if scenarios, off-camera events, and even some canonical new territory. Unfortunately, much of this won't make sense to newcomers, so playing the first entry is highly recommended. For those in the know, a poignantly macabre tale awaits.

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows out now, Europe next week

Corpse Party is not for the weak of heart. It conveys some pretty dark imagery and few games are more worthy of the ESRB's M rating. But if you can get past its unpleasant sights and stomach-churning sounds, this visual novel...

New releases: Batten down the hatches, DmC is upon us

Another week of new releases is upon us! I hope you're not broke. After many months of furious debates, arguments, and colorful name calling, we can finally shut the hell up and just play (or not play) DmC: Devil May Cry.&nb...

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows heading to PSP next week

Corpse Party is one of the most disturbing horror games I've ever experienced. Starting out on something of a cheerful note, the game allows players time to form bonds with its affable cast of characters. That is, before...

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows trailer is pretty messed up

Corpse Party: Book of Shadows is a sequel to last year's Corpse Party. It's coming to the PSP this winter by way of the PlayStation Network. You can try to change fate in this point-and-clicker, but messing up sounds like it...
