Is BioWare's new nightmare called 'Shadow Realms' or 'You've Been Chosen?'

BioWare sent out a mysterious teaser trailer for its new horror IP. The trailer implies surreal psychological terrors, but the identity of this game is even more of a mystery. EA's trademark activity points to the name "Shadow Realms," but the channel hosting the video and the website for the game are called "You've Been Chosen."

Original Alien cast discuss how great the movie was while voicing Isolation

While voicing lines for the upcoming Alien: Isolation pre-order DLC, the crew of the original Alien took a few moments to compare the movie and videogame mediums while also reminiscing about the 1979 classic. Tom S...

The Evil Within jump starts the scares a week earlier than planned

If indecision frightens you, then there's plenty to be scared of when it comes to The Evil Within. Originally slated for an August release, Bethesda pushed it back to October 21. Now that we're a bit closer to that window, th...

Slender: The Arrival is coming to consoles, bringing new VHS-based terrors
by Bill Zoeker

Slender: The Arrival is coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this year, and it's arriving with some added content (which owners of the game on PC will receive for free). Casey Lynch from Midnight City came by to play through one of the new levels with Max.

The level shown in the above video actually takes place on a VHS tape being viewed by another character from the game. It puts the player in the shoes of CR, who is investigated the disappearance of a child named Charlie Matheson.

First look at Tecmo's new Fatal Frame for Wii U
by Kyle MacGregor

Koei Tecmo unveiled the next entry in the Fatal Frame series, Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko, today during a NicoNico Live event.

The Wii U horror title, which Siliconera translates as Fatal Frame: The Black Haired Shrine Maiden, will be summoned to Japan starting September 27, 2014.

Zero: Nuregarasu no Miko is set against the backdrop of a cursed lakeside manor in the mountains, where themes of water and hydrophobia will feature prominently.

The Wii U GamePad also figures to be a core part of the experience. Koei Tecmo asserts the title will make use of the controller's unique qualities to mimic the trademark Camera Obscura, allowing players to spot things that might otherwise go unseen by the naked eye.

Alien Isolation Ripley DLC not pre-order exclusive, will release later

I think that Alien: Isolation could be great. Pre-order DLC is bad. Especially when it's actually cool sounding content, like a few missions starring the original Alien cast in the upcoming Alien: Isolation. After a...

Here's what Ripley and friends look and sound like in Alien: Isolation

Someone needs to take Sega aside and politely inform it that pre-order incentives aren't actually supposed to be enticing. Years of custom gun skins and XP boosts have made the whole affair predictable and boring, and then S...

Original Alien cast returns for Alien: Isolation bonus content, available for those who pre-order

Alien: Isolation is supposed to be more like the 1979 horror film Alien, and less like the action shooter that some other Aliens game tried to be. Thus far, it looks like it has stuck to that design philosophy well enough, an...

Evil Within CENSORED in Japan, Gore Mode DLC unlocks Western version

So Japan gets the ability to cattle prod moaning, ass-up anime girls and the rest of the world doesn't (quite). Meanwhile, we get a gross out Evil Within, while in Japan it has been edited down. I assume the same people mad a...

Alien: Isolation on Oculus Rift won't see the light of day

One of my favorite experiences at E3 was playing Alien: Isolation on Oculus Rift. The extra layer of immersion that virtual reality could provide did wonders for an already terrifying game. Unfortunately, it seems as if...

It looks like people really dug Alien: Isolation at E3 2014

Another day, another bit of info about Alien: Isolation. I already know I want to buy it. I don't honestly need trailer after trailer with tiny morsels of gameplay. I'm about ready to jump right in, especially after Steven's...

Never too late: Outlast now playable on Xbox One

Child dragging Murasaki Baby coming to Vita this September

Murasaki Baby is weird, which I guess you'd expect from the director of Shadows of the Damned. Developer Ovosonico announced today on Twitter that we can expect Murasaki Baby to release exclusively for the Vita this September.
