I recently purchased The Mammoth Book of Best Horror Comics, a collection of horror comics spanning the era before and after the Comics Code Authority was instated in 1954. Though I enjoy comics (as a kid I had a pretty good collection), I’ve kind of fallen out of sync with the comics world. I have […]
In unsurprising news, Kotaku is reporting that Double Helix (previously known as The Collective) has cancelled vampire staking game Harker in order to finish Silent Hill 5. That’s probably a worthy trade off, though it’s always a bit sad to see original IP die off for the sake of a sequel (even a Silent Hill […]
Kotaku reports that Silent Hill 5 will be out for PS3 and Xbox360 in September of this year, and that the name on the box will read Silent Hill: Homecoming. September is pretty soon. I’m looking forward to seeing what The Collective has done with the game.
A while back I posted a short and completely off-topic piece about wireless headphones. Basically, good wireless headphones are not cheap, and though there are pretty good alternatives, some of them (like the Sony IR headphones I ended up buying) get interference from plasma TVs (hooray!). Despite the color-induced static, I toughed it out with […]
Sony Japan has a website up that looks an awful lot like a Siren 3 announcement. The red background, rain, grainy and scary soundtrack, and even the clock design are a perfect fit for the series (not to mention the giant “sa” character in the background). Back in 2006 there were some rumblings about a […]
On a lighter note, Destructoid has a humorous list of 10 Golden Rules for Survival Horror. It’s mostly commentary on Resident Evil, but fun nonetheless.
MTV’s Multiplayer blog has an excellent series of articles about black professionals in the game industry. The entire series is a really interesting, and I recommend that you read the whole thing. I decided to post about the series because one of the topics that is discussed is the Resident Evil 5 trailer, which, as […]
Wii-focused vaporware horror game Sadness is probably never coming out. It probably doesn’t even exist, except maybe on paper. But if it does exist, and is actually in development somewhere, then this might be a screenshot from it.
A couple of weeks ago I was browsing the film section of my local Japanese bookstore when I came across a box set of four discs called Tales of Terror From Tokyo and All Over Japan. Now, to tell you the truth, the set looked like utter schlock. In addition to the awkward title and […]
I keep forgetting to post about Project Origin, maybe because the name is so forgettable. This game is the sequel to F.E.A.R., but sports a different name because Vivendi, the publisher of F.E.A.R., owns the copyright. Monolith, the developer of the game, was purchased by Warner Bros. a couple of years ago, which required that […]
