Review: Darkwood

Darkwood's atmosphere is stifling and oppressive. The top-down horror game builds slowly and with purpose; preying on our innate fear of the unknown and the crippling indecision of wondering who to trust. It's a winding, obtuse journey thro...

Review in Progress: Darkwood

Darkwood is a game of gnarled roots and things that go bump in the night. Savages and mutated creatures hide just out of view, obscured by the heavy shadows cast from thick foliage and impossibly high trees. The forest looms overhead. It's ...

Today's Outlast 2 patch smooths out the difficulty

If there's one thing that can really bog down a horror game, it's the difficulty. Make it too easy, and there's no real chance of maintaining tension. Make it too hard, and repeated playthroughs of the same challenging section over again an...
