New releases: Scary, porcine machines

I'm still recovering from last week's Outlast, and now we've got another bloody terrifying first-person horror title to scare our pants clean off in the form of Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs. I confess that reviews, such as our lovely Jim's, have cooled my excitement a bit, as The Chinese Room's love of story above all else has diminished the horrific terror found in the first game. 

On top of Amnesia, that Killzone: Mercenary thingymabob is coming out; Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix is dropping, so Squarephiles and Disneyphiles have something to get excited about; Arma III is finally leaving beta and becoming a big boy game, which is splendid, because it's rad; and everything Elder Scrolls gets collected in an anthology pack. All this and more is launching this week.

Anything tickling your undercarriage?

Review: Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs
by Jim Sterling

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is a beloved title for a number of reasons. As well as becoming a viral darling thanks to a cavalcade of shrieking YouTube videos, Dark Descent was praised for bringing back a sense of true survival horror at a time when so many publishers were adamant the genre was dead. It was also just a straight up terrifying game, which helped!

For the sequel, Frictional Games has drafted in the talents of The Chinese Room, best known for its story-driven excursion into vagueness, Dear Esther. The blending of survival horror and a studio famous for its contribution to what are popularly called "art games" makes for an intriguing cocktail, one that could potentially delight, but also severely disappoint. 

A Machine For Pigs straddles the line. The Chinese Room's talent for storytelling and mystery works very well in Amnesia's twisted world, but its love of making players hear, rather than play, its mysterious stories will certainly rub some Dark Descent fans up the wrong way.

It's time for another playthrough from your best buddy Jim Sterling! This time we're having an early look at Amnesia: A Machine For Pigs, the upcoming horror game from The Chinese Room. 

Don't expect screaming and yelling -- there are dozens of YouTube videos that'll do that for you. Instead, enjoy a video that discusses porcine seaside catapults and features a man sniffing and coughing his way through half an hour of scares.
