Weird Al closing out BlizzCon

Husk is a Polish take on Silent Hill, and I'm fascinated

Like most video game horror fans, I'm legally obligated to brag to you about how big of a horror fan I am. There was a time in my life where I was inspired by Chris's Survival Horror Quest and systematically began tracking down and pla...   read
