Don't look upstairs
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...
P.T. was one of the most entertaining games I played in 2014. Even though it was just a demo, the "playable teaser" for Silent Hills was a perfect horror experience, nailing a lot of elements that current horror games complet...
'Konami said they wouldn't let a 'team like us' handle the Silent Hill property'
As the Internet continues to blink with incredulity at Konami's decision to spike one of the most exciting E3 teasers of all time, Silent Hills, here's another head-scratcher of a decision made by the Japanese ...
Forgotten Memories Stream
Let's find out together!
Forgotten Memories recently released for iOS devices, and looks genuinely creepy. The game clearly takes a lot of influence from the Silent Hill series, going as far as including voice actors from Silent Hill 2, but can a gam...
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...
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...
There was a Playable Teaser here, it's gone now
It's time to “shit your pants,” get off the pot, and download P.T. if you haven't already. Because come April 29, its going to disappear from the PlayStation Store.
P.T. may only be considered a demo or teas...

As it turns out, people still love some old-fashioned scares. That's evident by the latest news coming out of Capcom's camp: Resident Evil HD Remaster has broken one million units sold since its January release. That's a...
Still isn't out of its testing phase though
Don't Starve was released all the way back in 2013, but developer Klei Entertainment still isn't done with it yet. In addition to the Reign of Giants expansion/DLC in 2014, Don't Starve Together, a multiplayer game currently...
Starring detective Juli Kidman
The Evil Within didn't live up to everything I thought it would be, but it's still a very unique survival horror title in a sea of action-oriented affairs. Today you can grab the second major bit of DLC, titled The Cons...
Developer says horror sequel may still return
I loved Alan Wake.
Maybe it's because I overdosed on Stephen King as a kid and have always had a particular penchant for that whole fiction-becomes-fact thing (if only to keep alive the dream that one day, McDreamy is go...
It's just you and me now, Omnitool
The next spooky game from the team behind Amnesia: The Dark Descent is officially in beta. No, you can't play it yet. Neither can I. But around 40 people are testing a "pretty much" content-complete build of SOMA right now, w...
Deep deep down
Last year during Game Connection Europe, Steven had some special hands-on time with developer Honor Code, Inc's upcoming underwater survival horror title Narcosis. As a psychological-horror survival game, players find themsel...
Amanda? More like Ash
In what was probably an alternate ending to Alien: Isolation, Amanda Ripley looked down and noticed that her arms were fire. How she went through decades of life without realizing that her limbs were constant chemical combus...
Some online features delayed to hasten the release
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is on its way to PlayStation Vita this summer, according to Sony.
The Vita version will contain all four episodes packaged with any downloadable content released up to that point, aside from consum...
'I was watching. I saw the whole thing. First it started falling over, then it fell over.'
Do any of you remember the movie Nightwatch?
No, not the Russian one with the iffy sequel. I mean the one with Ewan McGregor as a security guard at the local morgue, constantly harrassed by a presumably drunken Nick Nolte an...
That freaking fridge
The timing on this video could not be better. As a new PlayStation 4 owner, one of the first games I knew I had to download was P.T., a playable teaser lead-in to Silent Hills. It's a weird game -- "experimental," if you lik...
The latest Fatal Frame game is coming western Wii Us later this year, Nintendo just announced.
For months fans were nervous this wouldn't get localized, but now we have solid confirmation that it will be hitting western shores roughly one year after the original Japanese release.
Maybe it's nothing, but things are getting concerning
In the midst of all the recent rumblings regarding Hideo Kojima potentially leaving the Metal Gear series behind after Metal Gear Solid V is released, today it turns out there's yet another troubling sign on the horizon.
Wii U, Vita, Android, and PC will have to wait an ickle bit longer
As you may recall, Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities came out of near-nowhere with its Silent Hill 2 cast additions, after several years off the development grid. If you're still wondering what Guy Cihi's delightf...
...on Steam Early Access
Atari has taken a break from bullying indie developers to release Asteroids: Outpost, a gross and twisted cash-in on the beloved space shooter that first delighted arcade patrons in 1979.
The "open world sandbox survival game...
You know you wanna
According to Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne, who is "happy on behalf of the team," the Alan Wake franchise has sold more than 4.5 million units across Xbox 360 and PC to date.
I can't hear numbers like that and not call for a s...
I'm holding out for Svelte: The Comebackening
Do people still think Slenderman is scary? I don't really know; it seems like the well-dressed humanoid has faded from the collective consciousness lately. Maybe it's just that I don't visit meme websites any more.
GOTY 2013, if you don't mention The Last of Us to me
State of Decay was one of those pleasant surprises back in 2013. Sure, the sandbox/RPG-lite horror game was a little rough, but it was an intense experience full of free flow situations, base building, and likable survivors....
Exclusive to the Season Pass or the disc
As you might be aware, Capcom is taking a really weird approach to Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition to bringing in an episodic format, they've also hitched two secretive "extra episodes" to the package, exclusive to ...
A fitting finale
That's it, folks. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is finally done with its odd episodic format, delivering small chunks every week for the past month or so. The final package is out in all of its glory, including the disc v...
Someone to (Terra)save you
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 has been a solid showing from Capcom thus far. The only real snag has been the approach to cooperative play, as it's not yet available for Raid mode. That'll change within a few week's time.
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.
Coming to iOS and Fire devices
Last I heard of Human Head Studios, it had taken over development on Minimum (and, prior to that, was working on Prey 2 until publisher Bethesda finally said stop). The company is now putting out a mobile horror title called...
