The last bit of The Evil Within DLC drops this month. "The Executioner" features an unexpected shift to the first-person perspective and "series of battle arenas all from the...perspective of The Keeper," if you were thinkin... read

Shinji Mikami's The Evil Within has one more trick up its sleeve. The cool-down lap is said to feature a lengthy talk with a therapist before dimming the lights and taking a refreshing nap. When you wake up, the house w... read

The next DLC episode of The Evil Within, The Consequence, picks up on April 21, 2015. Like The Assignment before it, Bethesda is starting us off with an extra brief teaser trailer. Somehow, the delivery of the sorta-out-of-c... read

All that matters is finding Leslie, but it is still nice to see an actual trailer for The Evil Within's first DLC, The Assignment, after last week's ten seconds of nothing teaser. There is a release date, too. March 10. The ... read

Well, Leslie. That's quite the predicament you've gotten yourself into, Leslie. We can't wait to see how you manage to get out of this one, Leslie. It's just a teaser, but at least we know that The Evil Within's first add-on... read

Based on everything I've heard about The Evil Within, I genuinely do not know if I'll like the game. It could be one of my favorites this year, but I also wouldn't be shocked if I ended up hating it, all the same. I'll contin... read

You're gonna lose your head over this The Evil Within glitch


Lost his head, but kept his cool
Oct 20
"This is insane," are some pretty appropriate famous last words, especially when you're inside a carnival of horrors. That should've been the case for this player, but he took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. That's perseverance at its finest. That thing was just weighing him down, anyway. read

I'd prefer a little more evil
I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Game... read feature

The first 30 seconds of this new The Evil Within trailer declares that the game's enemies are "demented, vicious, and deadly." Most of them look all three parts, but the ones with the smiley-face masks have really locke... read

All too often, survival horror titles perform poorly in some areas, but it's somehow acceptable because that's the trade-off for being survival horror. If the experience is tense and scary, it seems like everything else is fo... read feature

I've got high hopes for Tango Gameworks' The Evil Within. It's the return of Shinji Mikami and, hopefully, big-budget survival horror. Games like Outlast have scared us silly, but it's also possible to point to series like De... read
