Happy Halloween Everybody! Why not celebrate by curling up with the original Night of the Living Dead, available for free download/stream in all its glory. Or, if that’s not your cup of tea, how about translations of classic Japanese horror stories (my favorites include Yuki-Onna and Mimi-Nashi Hoichi) by Lafcadio Hearn? I totally ripped off […]

RE4 -> PS2

Resident Evil 4 is out on Playstation 2 today, and it’s been garnering some pretty high praise. Here’s what IGN has to say: It’s easily one of the top 10 PlayStation 2 games you can lay your hands on. For me, it’s probably one of my top 10 games of all-time. There’s so much to […]

Holy Zombie Games, Batman

I’m still way behind because my computer is in the shop, but here’s some recent updates. For some reason they all involve zombie games. City of the Dead may or may not be cancelled.

Suffering 2 Reviews

The Suffering: Ties That Bind came out late last month and the reviewers have pretty much agreed that it’s a little weaker than its predecessor. I’m still looking forward to this title because the original Suffering is one of the very few American horror games that actually worked pretty well without being campy.

New Site Feature

This weekend I added Keywords to my site. Now every post should contain a keyword (like the link that says “Site” on this post), and you can browse the posts by specific keyword. This is a pretty standard feature of other blogs, and now I’ve added it to my software. Hopefully it will make the […]

Expository Horror

I’ve been itching to write a few more articles for the site, in the vein of the feature on character design that I posted a few months back. Like the previous article, I’d like to focus on one aspect of horror games and sort of write a stream-of-consciousness about how they help induce fear in […]
