Alien: Isolation Survival Video Footage Brings The Tension

Alien: Isolation

One of the big things that seem to be missing from the horror genre is tension. Why is it that most mainstream horror games rely on jump-scares instead of tension? That loaded question could be its own article for another time. But the truth of the matter is that mainstream horror games don’t really focus on building tension around emergent and procedural horror elements… except for Alien: Isolation. Continue reading



WWE 2K15 First Gameplay Trailer Is Impressive

WWE 2k15

It feels like over the last couple of years the officially licensed WWE games have just been phoning it in. Churning out the standard-fare crap we’ve all come to somewhat enjoy for the sake of… well, I don’t really know why people still enjoy the rehashed stuff. I grew tire of it. Anyway, the latest WWE game from 2K Games at least looks to offer gamers a slightly more dynamic presentation of the popular sports entertainment brand. Continue reading

Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution

The whole censorship raid going down on 4chan over the #GamerGate situation is a bit distracting, but let’s talk a little bit about recently released video games, even during a time where the entirety of video game culture is coming under fire from all the dastardly cretins attempting to censor the internet, shall we? Bandai Namco has officially let loose Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm Revolution for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

Mortal Kombat X Introduces Goro, Sets Release Date For April, 2015

Mortal Kombat X

NetherRealm Studios announced a brand new pre-order bonus for Mortal Kombat X. I’ve already made myself clear on not really digging pre-order bonuses. The idea of paying for cheats, secret content or extra characters in games before they release is kind of annoying. Even still, it feels like pre-order bonuses are small fries compared to the other crap happening in the industry. With that said, Goro is the pre-order bonus for Mortal Kombat X. Continue reading

Jesper Kyd Scores Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Borderlands The Pre-Sequel

Every time there’s a post that doesn’t have to deal with #GamerGate I get a little bit excited; a part of me jumps on the inside about the giddy possibilities regarding the game in said post. But then, another part of me realizes that said game could be part of some backroom cabal and the whole thing is actually some sort of sham and it’s all one big lie. I mean, following the IGF thing it’s impossible to tell what’s what anymore. However, sometimes there’s news from places that just seem like they want to get the word out about their creativity and art, and it’s easy to forget about all the other nonsense. Continue reading

Capcom is still a conductor on the milk train, moving each of their franchises (save for Mega Man) through a re-release phase, and they’re doing it again with Resident Evil with the HD remake coming to the seventh and eighth-gen consoles next year. On the bright side at least Capcom is working on a new game… even though it’s only just another sequel. Continue reading

Forza Horizon 2

The upcoming release of Forza Horizon 2 will first allow gamers to meet with a demo before the full thing drops, sort of like dinner before a wild night out on the town. The demo will contain a handful of super sports cars for players to dabble around with, along with some asphalt and dirt sections to drive through in southern Europe. Continue reading
