Holy shit, Agony looks friggin' terrifying

Agony hasn't been on my radar, but after watching this gameplay trailer (which has the game's other trailers built-in) I'm pumped. Apparently, you play as a tormented soul trying to escape Hell with no memory of your past life. Boy&nb...   read

Review: CASE: Animatronics

I went into CASE: Animatronics with an open mind. Yes, as a Steam Greenlight game featuring evil animatronics, there was some obvious cause for trepidation. That it would turn out to be a shameless copy cat, a thin experience riding another...   read


Killing Floor 2 officially releases on PC and PS4 November 18

I've been playing a ton of Killing Floor 2 since it came to Steam Early Access April 2015, and it's been great, bloody fun. For those of you who tend to skip Early Access or prefer playing on PlayStation 4, your wait is almost over. On...   read

Little Nightmares looks messed up in all the right ways

Remember Hunger? Maybe not its name (those one-word titles sure have a habit of slipping out of mind for me), but the unnerving, surreal, not-quite-right world should seem vaguely familiar. Bandai Namco has opted to publish the Tarsier Stu...   read


The Evil Within and Rage sold enough to warrant sequels

The headline says it all, check please. Just kidding. In an interview with, Bethesda Softworks vice president Pete Hines enthusiastically said that The Evil Within made enough money to justify a sequel. He also thinks tha...   read

Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location drops this October

Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location is lined up for an October 2016 release, but I'll be shocked if creator Scott Cawthon sticks with that plan. As fitting as that month would be for this series, he has a knack for getting these games ...   read

Voice-controlled horror game Stifled is on Steam Greenlight, worth a look

When playing horror games, I'm not really the type to yelp when things jump out at me. I might make a little "guh" noise when SCARY LOUD THINGS happen, but that's about the extent of it. Gattai Games' new first-person horror explorer Stifle...   read

Review: Dark Fear

I am probably a horror game maker's favorite sort of person. I scare very easily when it comes to video games. Movies, not so much, but video games, man, they get me. Like, was Resident Evil 4 supposed to be super scary or is that...   read

We're getting more Layers of Fear in August

Bloober Team is continuing the Layers of Fear story with Inheritance, an add-on coming to all platforms on August 2, and I think I'm down for more. The psychological jump-scares grew predictable well before the game concluded, but I though...   read

Capcom is still being coy about the Resident Evil 7 demo's finger

For weeks now, fans have been toiling away in and outside of the Resident Evil 7 demo hoping to figure out what, if anything, that damned dummy finger does. Based on an image Capcom sent out to Resident Evil ambassadors earlier today, the a...   read

The Problematic Translation of H.P Lovecraft

As many know, I am an unapologetic supporter of the horror genre. It allows for us to all feel one overwhelming emotion together in unity, while also telling a complex or surreal story with hidden themes and deeper messages. Perso...   read

Scorn looks gross in all the right ways

Scorn, a fleshy first-person horror adventure "set in a nightmarish universe of odd forms," popped up on Steam Greenlight today. You might not want to watch this teaser trailer in a crowded room. Elaborating on the gameplay since there's on...   read

Capcom promises there are no quick-time events in Resident Evil 7

I did not expect to come out of E3 pumped for a new mainline Resident Evil game, but here we are. The shift to a first-person perspective, the move away from "superhero characters" and absurd spectacle, the shroud of mystery -- Residen...   read

Ed Boon wants to make a fighting game featuring all horror icons

Speaking to Game Informer, NetherRealm's Ed Boon seems up for a horror fighting game based on all of the recent inclusions over the years of horror icons in Mortal Kombat games. It's an idea he's been visiting "frequently," and "one da...   read

Allison Road developer's cancellation statement doesn't really explain anything

For those of you who aren't aware of the Allison Road saga, I'll explain it briefly. Once upon a time, there was a game (demo, really) called P.T. It was canceled by Konami presumably out of spite for Kojima, and it, and it's follow-up...   read

Here They Lie trailer is creepy, mostly monochrome, VR-compatible

There were a lot of trailers at this year's Sony E3 presser (and not much besides trailers, oddly enough), but the one they put up for Here They Lie was one of the ones that stood out for me. Not much is known about the game besides th...   read

Call of Cthulhu looks a little cheesy, but I'm into it

Review: Edge of Nowhere

For $40, you can experience around three hours of a white guy with a gun battling aliens that can infect humans in Insomniac Games' VR debut, and no, it isn't Resistance, but obviously that isn't a stretch for the developer. That means you'...   read
