Deception IV

If there’s any gaming genre you could wake me up in the middle of the night for, it’s quirky Japanese cult games. Deception IV: Blood Ties is one of those games. I didn’t expect a graphical powerhouse, no tearjerking storyline and expected the full experience to be as niche as games can be. But does this fourth game in the series of sadistic trapbuilding live up to my expectations? I’m going to be quick about this one, yes, yes it […]

Alien-Isolation

Some new footage starts to emerge from E3. Throughout all the upcoming first person shooters like Call of Duty, Battlefield, Rainbow Six and games like Little Big Planet 3, Uncharted 4 and Assassin’s Creed Unity there are a few very interesting horror themed games. One of them, which i’m most intrigued by at the moment is Alien: Isolation. The reason I’m so intrigued by this game is that it’s based on the original Alien film by Ridley Scott. It’s actually […]

Dead Island Riptide

E3 2014 is held at the moment and all press conferences where held last monday and tuesday. The conferences where kinda thin on horror announcements but during Sony’s presser both Sony and publisher Deep Silver announced Dead Island 2 with a Shaun of the Dead-like trailer. Dead Island 2 will (hopefully) be a proper sequel. I liked the original game but I really didn’t like Riptide. Deep Silver is currently also working on Dying Light, no word on that one […]

Daylight

Daylight has the honor of being one of the first true horror experiences on the PS4, but unfortunately, that’s the only accolade that this fetch quest is garnering from me.

I was thrilled by the chance to play a next gen exclusive horror title, built with Unreal 4, and published by Atlus (one of the few publishers that aren’t afraid to take a chance on different […]

A very intriguing, claustrophobic setting, an intimate story and some of the best tension building I’ve seen in a long time. At this moment developer Dreampainters is working on a new horror project for Oculus called White Heaven. We already saw a teaser trailer but it just begs to find out […]
