Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 142 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
When you’ve helped save the world as a cheerleader you’ve probably earned yourself a little rest and relaxation in an isolated mountain cabin.  You just have to make sure you don’t pick a cabin that happens to be the hunting grounds of a psycho in a mask. “Until Dawn” is the next game from Supermassive [...]

The first annual (presumably) Video Game Awards were hosted live on the internet yesterday and, just like it’s Spike TV predecessor, the award show was full of trailers and world premieres.  While not a lot of big premieres were had, there were still quite a few notable horror-related games that made their mark last night. [...]

Evolve Unleashes New Story Trailer
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 146 Days Ago. | No Comments
“Evolve” hits store shelves this February and, to be honest, up until this point I didn’t realize the game had a story to it.  I simply thought it was a unique multiplayer experience, but as it turns out there is a story that ties the whole thing together.  And to prove it, they’ve released a [...]

Evil Within Livestream (Offline)
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 159 Days Ago. | No Comments
We’re giving this livestream thing another shot and this time we’re playing “The Evil Within.” I’m about five chapters into the game, so if you want to avoid spoilers you may not want to watch.  But if you want to see what this game is all about I’ll do my best to explain it as [...]

Alien: Isolation PS4 Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 163 Days Ago. | No Comments
After the mess that was “Aliens: Colonial Marines”, many fans of the “Alien” franchise were left bitter and resentful over Sega’s handling of the series.  So when word came soon after the release of “Colonial Marines” that Sega was working on another game, people were starting to sharpen their pitchforks and light their torches.  Is “Alien: Isolation” a turning [...]

Slender: The Arrival PS3 Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 177 Days Ago. | 3 Comments
Apologies are in order for this one. I had quite a few technical difficulties as of late that kept me from reviewing a few games on time. As such I have a backlog of reviews incoming that include “Alien Isolation” and “The Evil Within.”  However, this review will be for a game that has also [...]

EDIT: Alright, that’s a wrap. Thanks for watching if you stopped by. I might do this again during the week. I’ve got a copy of “Alien Isolation” and a PS4 so I’m testing out the livestreaming feature on this thing.  Nothing fancy!  But if you want to watch me play “Alien Isolation” for the next [...]

The Final Trailer for Alien: Isolation
Written by Chris Savage, Posted 203 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
After months of wondering and hoping, SEGA’s Alien: Isolation is finally upon us. But, the question still remains, is this the Alien game that we have all been waiting for? I’d like to say yes and certainly hope it is, and while many sites are praising the game, a few seem to be quite negative, so [...]

“The Drowning” to be Adapted into Feature Film
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 216 Days Ago. | No Comments
I don’t play very many games on the iPhone.  Partially because I don’t like playing video games on my phone and mostly because I don’t own an iPhone.  However, FPS horror game “The Drowning” has an interesting enough premise that makes me wish I could check it out.  Thankfully, I won’t have to sell a [...]

Check Out Your Victorian Gat in ‘The Order: 1886′
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 219 Days Ago. | No Comments
I’m not a huge steampunk fan, but I do enjoy the makeshift weaponry that they create for the style.  I like the idea of Victorian-era mad scientists throwing together random components to create their interpretations of modern weaponry.  It’s the one thing that really has me excited about “The Order: 1886.” Developer Ready at Dawn [...]

The Evil Within TGS Trailer Gets Messy
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 221 Days Ago. | No Comments
We’re just a month away from the release of Bethesda’s “The Evil Within” and I’m still not sure what to think about it.  I enjoyed my time with the game during E3 and was left wanting to play more; however, many others have felt underwhelmed by what it has to offer.  Either way, I can’t [...]

Bloodborne Hits Us with New TGS Trailer and Release Date
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 221 Days Ago. | No Comments
The more I see of “Bloodborne”, the more I know that I’m going to be absolutely terrible at it.  But it’s also the kind of game that I can’t say “no” to.  I may give up after a few frustrating hours, but if it’s anything like the time I spent with Demons Souls, I’ll remember [...]

Creepy New Concept Trailer for Silent Hills
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 221 Days Ago. | No Comments
Did you play P.T.? I finally got around to checking it out this past weekend (just got myself a PS4) and I have to say that it was pretty effective.  I’m not ashamed to admit that I let out one scream while playing it in the dark.  To be fair, it was a random jump scare, [...]
