This is certainly an (un)pleasant Halloween surprise. Frictional Games and thechineseroom have posted a teaser trailer for Amnesia: A Machine for Pigsand here I am, creeped out -- it's not even 9:00am. Today is off to a great start!
PC Gamer caught up with thechineseroom's Dan Pinchbeck to get more context for this new horror game set against the backdrop of industrialization in 1899 London. He says that "It's fairly true to the spirit of [Amnesia: The Dark Descent]. There's a definite case of 'don't fix what isn't broken.' We're not going to be arming the player up at all -- you're still going to be hiding for most of it and running and peeking and not wanting to open doors and things like that. I think that's kind of the core spirit of the game really, so we don't want to take that away from the player."
Continuing, Pinchbeck notes that it won't be too familiar an experience, saying "We've tried to do some stuff which will keep the player on their toes a little bit, to stop them from being able to play the same way. So there's changes to the way some of the things behave in the game. It's difficult to talk about that without giving too much away really."
And, really, I don't want to hear more -- the less we know, the better. The Dark Descent has steadily grown its audience over the last two years. Come 2013, there's going to be a lot of nervous excitement in the air. I can't wait to see people freak out on YouTube.

KyWii Why is it that Sundays always feel so lazy? I always tell myself I'm going to get things done and then...well....SeymourDuncan17 So, I plan on using my GameStop Power-Up Rewards points (yes) to buy all the eventual P4DAN DLC.

This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).Lawman What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...Terry 309 Been trying to get Tales Of Phantasia finished before Zestiria comes out... How i'm going to get through that game I have no clue... especially when Exist Archive comes out in December and I have to play that too... also i've still yet to finish Grandia 2TheLimoMaker Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?
