Santa Claws?

Happy Holidays, folks. 2008 is on its way and it should be a pretty good time for us horror gamers, so we have a lot to be thankful for this Christmas season. Hope that you guys are spending the holiday curled up with a scary game. Remember to turn out all the lights (except those […]

One Game I Cannot Condemn

I finished Condemned this week and posted a review. I thought it was excellent; one of the best recent horror games that I’ve played. I went into the game with low expectations (the E3 2005 demo made it look really bad), but by the end boss I was throughly satisfied. Check the review for details […]

Resident Evil CG Movie Screens Video

Back around Halloween I mentioned that a CG Resident Evil movie had been announced by Capcom. Well today the first screens from the film are available over at Destructoid. The aesthetic reminds me of Resident Evil 2, which is good because Leon S Kennedy and Claire Redfield are the main characters. Update: Kotaku has a […]

Crawling Up Through the Topsoil Sometime Soon

A bunch of horror games have been announced this year, so I thought I’d take a step back and see what we can look forward to in the near future. I think this list is pretty complete, but please post information about upcoming games that I miss. Also, until the titles actually ship it will […]

Penumbra: Black Plague

The pretty great-looking Penumbra: Overture is now getting a sequel, which looks pretty neat. Destructoid has the scoop (as well as a video), and there is more info at the official site. I don’t have a PC and thus wasn’t able to play the full version of Overture, but the demo seemed very neat. I […]

New Silent Hill 5 Footage

Destructoid has some new footage of gameplay from the upcoming Silent Hill 5. Everything about it looks pretty good except for the camera; it looks to me like it’s a standard American third-person-on-the-second-stick camera rather than the rather brilliant camera system from previous games in the series. I hope that I’m wrong and that the […]

In Defense of Bad Games

I know that I can be pretty harsh when it comes to bad games. I mean, this is a research blog and I am interested in why bad games are bad, but I’m also a gamer, and being frustrated by a bad game that I’m playing for research is just as annoying as when it’s […]

Silent Hill: 0rigins coming to PS2

Kotaku is reporting a fairly substantial-sounding rumor that Climax and Konami will be bringing Silent Hill: 0rigins to the PS2 in 2008. Makes sense–ports are pretty cheap and the PSP isn’t exactly a money-making machine. Here’s looking forward to a PS2 port of the latest addition to the Silent Hill series.
