Amnesia Collection coming to PS4 just in time for Thanksgiving

The early Penumbra games were decent enough horror games, but Amnesia: The Dark Descent was the big hit that made Frictional Games a haunted household name (don't boo me). It later released a single piece of DLC titled Justin...   read

Review: Yomawari: Night Alone

There is only one proper way to play a horror video game, just as there is only one proper way to watch a horror movie: with the lights off. In order for horror to work, you have to invest yourself in it. You have allow yourself to be scare...   read
