Shinji Mikami would like to see God Hand on Steam

The past few years have seen a rise in PC gaming and digital distribution in Japan, partially due to the success of Dark Souls, as PC Gamer reported a few months ago. Seeing how well the Souls franchise performed on PC, along with visu...

The Evil Within and Rage sold enough to warrant sequels

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

The Evil Within's latest title update kills off letterboxing

The Evil Within had a letterboxed aesthetic that didn't fly with everyone. It added to the cinematic presentation, but some people couldn't stand it. Coming up on a year after release, Tango Gameworks is just now making stylistic sacri...

The Executioner is the last Evil Within DLC, out May 26

The last bit of The Evil Within DLC drops this month. "The Executioner" features an unexpected shift to the first-person perspective and "series of battle arenas all from the...perspective of The Keeper," if you were thinking The Evil With...

The Evil Within debuts 'The Consequence' DLC today

The Evil Within didn't live up to everything I thought it would be, but it's still a very unique survival horror title in a sea of action-oriented affairs. Today you can grab the second major bit of DLC, titled The Consequence, for $9...

The Evil Within's first DLC has the answers we're looking for

Oh, right -- there's a Season Pass for The Evil Within. The thought of paying $19.99 for three DLC packs when the game itself was just on sale for nearly that price is unappealing, but that's the situation. Part one, The Assignment, release...

You're gonna lose your head over this The Evil Within glitch

"This is insane," are some pretty appropriate famous last words, especially when you're inside a carnival of horrors. That should've been the case for this player, but he took a lickin' and kept on tickin'. That's perseverance at its fines...

Review: The Evil Within

I grew up happily playing Shinji Mikami's games, and he's probably one of the most influential directors/producers that ever lived. I remember the first time I played Resident Evil, the day I bought Devil May Cry from EB Games, and the exac...

Happy The Evil Within Day, you bloody goblins

Well, it's finally here -- the day when The Evil Within is upon us at last, and we get to see how this thing turned out. Not us, mind you; Bethesda wasn't so quick to forward us a copy for review. But, I can assure you that we have Ch...

The Evil Within has gone gold so let us hack up some bodies

I'm good and ready to jump into The Evil Within. So ready. The game has gone gold across all platforms, says Bethesda. That means that we're on track for the October 14 release of Shinji Mikami's latest survival horror, bringing the game t...

Oh, the horror! The Evil Within delayed two months

The Evil Within is staying hidden in the shadows a little bit longer than anticipated. However, there aren't any surprise jump scares here; we know exactly when to expect it. Originally slated for a August 26 release, Bethesda announce...

The Evil Within isn't looking very evil so far

A behind-closed-doors play session for upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within wasn't as evil as I hoped it would be. I still have high hopes for the next game from Resident Evil vet Shinji Mikami and his new studio, Tango G...

Mikami: It's become harder to make players afraid

I've got high hopes for Tango Gameworks' The Evil Within. It's the return of Shinji Mikami and, hopefully, big-budget survival horror. Games like Outlast have scared us silly, but it's also possible to point to series like Dead Space as evi...

This screenshot from The Evil Within is a bad idea

Did you know that this guy's name is Boxman? I wasn't aware until today. He's been featured prominently in Bethesda's promotion of The Evil Within so far, which has me wondering if the intent is for him to become the title's iconic characte...

12 minutes of pure horror with The Evil Within

The Evil Within is going to be hopefully a return to the classic survival horror games we grew up with. That was my thoughts when I first saw the opening act to the game prior to E3 this year.  Now you can see what Isaw as Bethesda ha...

The Evil Within trailer sets stage for a nightmarish tale

Survival horror has certainly seen better days. A show of its former self, the genre is at a crossroads as its marquee franchises search for an identity in a new age. The market is ripe for exploitation and it looks like The Evil With...

Check out this brutal The Evil Within gameplay

God, I'm looking forward to The Evil Within. Shinji Mikami, back doing horror, and backed by one of the few publishers with enough balls left to not stick cravenly to focus-tested sludge. Couldn't be happier with that. Unpredictability, an...

A return to true survival horror with The Evil Within

A return to true survival horror. That's what Shinji Mikami, father of Resident Evil, and his new studio, Tango Gameworks, aims to do with The Evil Within. I saw the game in action at an E3 pre-show recently, and they've certainly nailed do...

Mikami wants to bring back horror focus for Evil Within

Few game genres bring about the kind of debate over terminology that horror does. Or maybe it only feels that way because it's the one I can't turn away from when the insults start flying. It took no time at all for folks to wonder what cat...

Horrific The Evil Within screenshots show promise

Even without Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's name so prominently attached to The Evil Within, I like to believe that I'd still be this eager to see more of the upcoming PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and next-gen title. There'...

Hey does anyone remember that time Ubisoft, of all people, made a Naruto game and it was pretty good but for some reason never released in Japan? Why don’t we get more anime licensed games by western developers
