New Bloodrayne Game in the Works
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 124 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
Ever since that time Uwe Boll got his hands on “Bloodrayne”, the franchise as a whole seems to have slipped from the pop culture conscious. With its wild heroine and combination of vampires and Nazis, Bloodrayne used to hold a certain charm that popularized it in the 90s. In 2012 Wayforward took a crack at [...]

In a world where MMOs are struggling to live long enough just to become “free-to-play”, its always a surprise to see another franchise attempt to enter the fray.  One such MMO was the long-gestating “World of Darkness” which was an online game based on the “Vampire: The Masquerade” series. “World of Darkness” was originally announced [...]

If you’ve been waiting to dive back into the world of “Outlast” with their first DLC expansion, then you probably know that it’s been a scary-long wait.  “Whistleblower”, the upcoming DLC expansion, was first announced way back around Halloween of last year.  And while I initially hoped we would be seeing it sooner rather than [...]

A lot of news articles about the latest trailer for “Soma” have opted to reveal the surprising twist showcased in the video below.  However, I think its better if you see it first before you learn what the twist is.  The way Frictional Games reveals this particular secret is pretty clever and worth watching untainted.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Teases Predator Appearance
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 145 Days Ago. | 5 Comments
When Michael Myers joined Activision’s “Call of Duty: Ghosts”, it seemed like a perplexing choice.  The world of slasher horror doesn’t really intersect too often with fully-armed military grunts.  As slick as Michael Myers is, he probably wouldn’t stand much of a chance against a guy with a futuristic grenade launcher. But perhaps Activision has [...]

Go Behind the Terror of Alien: Isolation
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 146 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
The more I hear about “Alien: Isolation” the more I like.  Almost everything they’ve discussed sounds like the perfect “Alien” experience.  It’s all so good, that I’m starting to worry that it can’t possibly live up to the promise.  However, I’m attempting to remain cautiously optimistic.  I don’t want to build this game up too [...]

Bethesda Unveils $100 Collector’s Edition for Wolfenstein
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 146 Days Ago. | 1 Comment
Here’s an interesting twist on an old favorite.  Video games receiving “collector edition” bundles are the norm now.  No one is particularly shocked when a publisher announces that you’ll be able to spend more money for some cool little trinkets or bonuses.  However, this may be the first time that a collector edition is being [...]

Ether One Game Review
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 148 Days Ago. | No Comments
The mind is an inconceivably complex network of thoughts, emotions, memories, and other things that I can’t articulately explain.  I’m no brain scientist, yet, but I know the brain is super important.  And it really is terrifying just how susceptible to damage it is. Dementia, for example, can alter your memory and behavior and essentially [...]

Get on a Train with Wolfenstein Gameplay Video
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 152 Days Ago. | No Comments
Bethesda has released a new “gameplay” video for “Wolfenstein: The New Order.”  I put gameplay in quotes because there isn’t much actual gameplay to be seen in the video as its more of an interactive scene. However, you should still check it out as it does present a fairly intense moment from the game that’s [...]

Ether One Releases a Brain Bending Launch Trailer
Written by Jason McDonald, Posted 155 Days Ago. | 2 Comments
The complex and delicate nature of the mind has always unsettled me.  The mind is an infinitely powerful tool that can easily break if mishandled.  A knock to your head or the discharge of a particular synapse is all it takes to irrevocably change your life forever. Which is why I find “Ether One” to [...]
