Here are four new clips of The Evil Within 2

Bethesda's The Evil Within 2 reveal at E3 went about as smoothly as anyone could hope for. There was a well-produced trailer, a description of the plot, and a release date. Probably most important, there was a thirst from fans for...

Put some trust into sci-fi horror Distrust

It's hot in the UK, right now. Damn hot! So even though this is the third wintery game I've played already, right after Kona and The Wild Eight, I'm actually okay with it as long as the illusion keeps me cool. Luckily, Distrust also happens...

We've been expecting at least a couple new game reveals out of Bethesda's E3 2017 press event, and The Evil Within 2 is looking like a reasonably sure thing at this point. Over the weekend, r/PS4 readers encountered a reddit ad with the fol...

Review: Friday the 13th: The Game

Ch...ch...ch... Ah...ah...ah... Somehow I’ve made it through life without viewing a single Friday the 13th movie, yet after playing this game I feel it’s probably unnecessary (see what I did there above??). Kickstarted back in O...

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...

Review: Outlast 2

If Chekhov’s gun is the narrative principle that if a gun is shown on a mantle in the first chapter, it must be fired by the third, then Outlast 2 runs on the principle of Chekhov’s piss. If you see a mutant hillbilly pissing in...

Get mentally prepared for Outlast 2 with this launch trailer

Dang, Outlast 2 really snuck up on me. It's coming out on Tuesday! Listening to the song in this launch trailer felt like spiders crawling down my back (maybe I should get that checked out), and the mere thought of running around a creepy ...

We Happy Few is being adapted into a feature film

We Happy Few is the title of an upcoming dystopian drug-addled video game, but it's also a phrase that could describe the audiences of video game movies. Films based on gaming properties have a well-deserved reputation for sucking, the...

Lose your sight and possibly your mind in Perception

There’s something unsettling about not being able to fully grasp your surroundings, especially when you’re playing a survival horror game. Perception is a game that throws the player into shaky visual ground, mixes in ...

Jacking minds and fragile psyches in Observer

There is a man in front of me, and he is in rough shape. He's bleeding all over the place, slumped up against a wall. His apartment is kind of a dump but not "dying guy on the floor fits right in" levels of bad. Rather than call for help, I...

Dead Space 3 wasn't originally designed for microtransactions

For all intents and purposes, Dead Space 3 is a pretty big failure. It eschewed the ideas that the first two games were building on and contained all of the worst bits of the modern games industry. There was a microtransaction-laden system ...

Spooky Adventures in Babysitting with 2Dark

Two things I'm very weary of in life: kids and developers mostly remembered for big hits from 25+ years ago. Look, if you've ever played Amy, you'll understand where I'm coming from. Even so, someone thought I was the ideal person to play 2...

Review: Resident Evil 7: Banned Footage Volume 1

It hasn't even been a month since I reviewed Resident Evil 7, a game that I thought was solidly okay (that's a joke, I'm the jerk who gave it a 10), and a big ol' chunk of DLC came out last week. It's called Banned Footage: Volume 1&nb...

About as much effort went into this tweet as the localization of the Kudos to releasing them on the same day as Japan though! Getting better as communication and transparency in regards to the DLC, so credit where credit is
