Did you know that this guy's name is Boxman? I wasn't aware until today.
He's been featured prominently in Bethesda's promotion of The Evil Within so far, which has me wondering if the intent is for him to become the title's ... more
The setup for The Long Dark interested Steven. This is a first-person survival simulation that has players exploring the Northern wilderness, dealing with other stranded people, and trying not to get eaten by wolves. We've h... more
There's nothing I like more than to curl up into a little ball and weep like a wee lassie, and Outlast looks like it's going to give me plenty of opportunities to do so. The pants-wetting survival horror title is due out on S... more

The National Entertainment Collectibles Association, a.k.a. NECA, has just revealed a new San Diego Comic-Con-exclusive figurine of Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees. Now, why would I be talking about film merch on a videogame... more
Even without Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's name so prominently attached to The Evil Within, I like to believe that I'd still be this eager to see more of the upcoming PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and next-ge... more
Rachel is in the main Resident Evil Revelations story, but she'll also be making her debut in the Raid Mode as a playable character for the console HD port. And she is still in desperate need of a hair cut and new clothes. Wh... more
Overall, I really enjoyed Dead Space 3. There were points that it dragged on, but a lot of the stuff near the end in those last few levels made it up for me. Still, Dead Space 2 is my favorite of the franchise largely because... more
Last month, Capcom announced the release of Resident Evil: Revelations for consoles and PC. Originally playable on the Nintendo 3DS, Capcom saw Revelations as a return to the series’ roots, and taking a step back from t... more

This isn't the first time Electronic Arts-published games have seen crossover items, and it will almost certainly not be the last. Those who have played Mass Effect 3 and still have the save file to prove it need only buy a ... more

Yup, Dead Space 3 will have Kinect voice control options similar to Mass Effect 3. And like the co-op experience, just because the feature is there doesn't mean EA will be trying to stuff it down your throat. With that said, ... more
Even before watching this trailer for Outlast, I was happy on the basis that more independent designers are trying their hand at survival horror. This is currently in development at Montreal-based Red Barrels, a studio made ... more
Slender is one of the scariest experiences I've ever had. Mastering the art of simplicity and exploiting it to create a true sense of paranoia and fear, the indie game based on the Slender Man mythos is impossible to forget. ... more
ZombiU is shaping up to be an easy launch-window purchase for Wii U owners as a complement to whatever obligatory first-party Nintendo title they purchase. I'm a bit worried by how much stuff is delegated to the GamePad, but... more
It's not every day you see a DS title get new PC and Mac versions years after the fact, but that's exactly what's happening with Renegade Kid's first-person horror game Dementium II. Memetic Games is using the Unity engine, s... more

You'll play as 7 different characters, with relationships that develop over the... more

SDCC has come and gone, and in its wake a trail of missed screen shots and concept art for ZombiU! Showcasing some zombie designs and blood spattered atmospheres, these come hot on the heels of a set of new trailers, each giv... more
Following the recent success of Day Z, we will now inevitably see many "me too" games being announced in the coming months. This one, however, appears to be a huge coincidence. Start-up indie studio Hammerpoint Interactive ha... more
Fans are still astoundingly furious at Silent Hill: Book of Memories, shocked as they are that a spin-off game would, y'know, spin off. I love me some righteous consumer outrage, but the presumptuous disgust for this one is t... more
Suffice to say, Silent Hill: Book of Memories has been met with a significant measure of cynicism by series fans. Seeing a beloved survival horror franchise become a dungeon-crawling RPG is a shock to the system, but after De... more
Electronic Arts is demanding attention, if my inbox is anything to go by. Three separate emails, from three separate EA employees, each containing one screen for a game that'll be at E3. The three games are Dead Space 3, Crys... more
All Games Beta has thrown a bunch of screenshots up for the next Dead Space game, prior to its announcement. With the appearance of a newer and redder buddy hanging off of Isaac Clarke's arm, these shots appear to reveal the ... more
It's been a full year since we last saw anything of Metro: Last Light. And unfortunately, just like last time, developer 4A Games only showed off a new section of gameplay rather than letting us go hands-on. While it is worri... more
Many horror games have played with the idea of a helpless protagonist, heightening the tension for a player by reducing their combat abilities and forcing them to survive, rather than fight. Krillbite's Among the Sleep takes... more
As I smashed a girl’s face in with repeated blows by a hammer to the point where it resembled a dropped plate of lasagna more than the visage of a human being -- a human being with a family, fears, and ambitions -- I re... more
A new batch of Resident Evil 6 screens have stomped their squelchy way onto the Internet, accompanied by a bunch of hot game details. From revamped controls to horror elements, there's plenty for the Resi-obsessed to be diges... more
China! White president! Tank driving! Racist!
Forget all of that. I'm just glad that there's a new Resident Evil game coming. We get so hung up on details that we forget that all of the Resident Evil games were good. So... more
I am quite the sucker for cooperative games. To me, there's no better experience than tackling an objective or taking down a sinister baddy with a bud right by my side -- oh, and couch co-op is preferred. Adversarial multipla... more
Here are some screenshots of Silent Hill: Book of Memories, showing some pictures of people doing things in the dark. The usually tight and claustrophobic Silent Hill looks very odd with such a withdrawn camera pers... more
A single image has surfaced for Alan Wake: Night Springs, the digital follow-up to 2009's action-horror. The picture comes via everybody's favorite full-color press release, Game Informer.
Mr. Wake is looking prett... more
Here's a slick little teaser trailer for Phosphor's The Dark Meadow, an iOS title I'm pretty excited about. The video is really nicely done, and seems to indicate that this will most certainly be a more involving type of mobile game.
We've also got some concept art in the gallery, and there's an official site for you to start gawping at. Good times! more
Here are some screens for Silent Hill: Downpour, that game I hadn't been impressed by at E3. I'm still hoping the final product turns out to be good and that someone just made a really stupid decision to put a crappy build on... more
Wow, Konami, can it be true? Not one, but two Silent Hill HD Collection screenshots, that we can keep forevermore? God bless us, everyone!
Seriously, this isn't really much to go on, but then, I guess you all know what Silent Hill 2 looks like by now. Here it is again, but with more DEFINITIONS! That's exciting for you all, isn't it?
Even after all of your attempts to change my mind, I remain unconvinced that Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D isn't going to to take a hit in the fun department now that you can run and shoot. I remain hopeful that Capcom will b... more
For a while there, I was under the impression Splatterhouse wouldn't make it out of development hell; it's nice to see that's not the case. Since the last time I gave the game a serious look, it seems the team at Namco Bandai... more

Now that the GTA IV craze is at least starting to die down, we can focus on other videogames -- yes, other ones exist. Alone in the Dark, for example, is one such game that is not GTA, even though it's set in New York. So, yo... more
Dracula 3 was announced last year, but it seems it mostly flew under the radar (perhaps due to the waning popularity of PC games that are not World of Warcraft.) I still enjoy gaming on my PC when there are games available, n... more
If Orcist was underwhelmed with the recent videos of the upcoming PlayStation Portable title, Silent Hill Origins, wait until he gets a load of these. These new screenshots of the upcoming prequel prove that even though the ... more
Here come five new Jericho screenshots of that creepy-looking tortured angry vegan fellow. While everyone looking forward to Clive's latest game appreciates the update, we kinda have to scratch our heads on this update. W... more
