Square wasn’t pulling punches when they developed their very first M-rated survival horror game, Parasite Eve. In the opening scene, the main character, Aya Brea, attends an opera where the entire audience spontaneously combusts. But what makes Parasite Eve so unique is that it shares more in common with Final Fantasy…
Dying Light, the parkour-themed zombie action game released in January 2015, is getting another free year’s worth of ten DLCs, according to its developer. While many players said they are excited, some players also said that they would rather see a sequel. All of the DLCs will be free on console and PC.
Horror games are a difficult thing to get right. They can feel like carnival attractions, full of overblown scares, or have so little horror that they elicit nothing but eye rolls. Resident Evil 7 gets it right. It’s a scary and violent blast of survival horror that sneaks up behind you before plunging a chainsaw in…
My love for survival horror games began with the first Resident Evil. As a kid I hated everything related to horror, but, after Resident Evil, I came to love and even seek out horror games.
Eternal Darkness is a 2002 GameCube game featuring an epically dark story that takes place over thousands of years. It’s a series of interconnected tales, almost like a collection of Edgar Allan Poe’s short stories, that weave together myth, occultism, and some of the dark chapters in religion. While most people…
When I first heard the original Silent Hill was getting a “reimagining” from Climax Studios, I groaned, thinking it was an attempt at a cash grab. I initially didn’t bother playing Silent Hill: Shattered Memories because no Silent Hill had been up to the quality of the first three (and, to a lesser extent, the fourth…
For months, fans who downloaded Resident Evil 7 Beginning Hour demo have been wondering what the hell we’re supposed to do with a useless in-game finger. Well, we might be on the cusp of getting an answer on that front.
Resident Evil 7's first-person take on the franchise is a bold experiment that holds tons of promise. The same could be said for Umbrella Corps, a new attempt by Capcom to graft multiplayer onto Resident Evil. Sadly, it doesn’t really work.
It doesn’t matter how pretty you make Resident Evil Zero—it’s still Resident Evil Zero. It’s easily one of the weakest entries in Capcom’s survival horror series, but if you’re interested in fighting zombies on a train, you’re suddenly in luck.
It's been nearly 20 years since Capcom released Resident Evil, but the company is still tweaking one of its best games. Thanks to some key control and graphical chances, today's re-release makes Resident Evil an even better and more enjoyable game than it's ever been.
Shinji Mikami of Resident Evil fame and the upcoming The Evil Within. Hideo Kojima of Metal Gear fame and the upcoming Silent Hills. Let's get the two in the same room and have them talk horror games, shall we?
UK-based mobile developer Neo_UK is trying its hand at PC game making with Congo, a co-op survival horror game set in Central Africa. It looks quite promising and sports some pretty neat lighting and particle effects. The trailer's above, and you can find out more over at the game's Steam Greenlight and Indie DB…
Forest Sharks: The Forest, that survival horror game with cannibalistic mutants, just got a big 'ol update with lots of fixes, changes and bug-squashing. The update includes stuff like sharks and a more dramatic scene involving your son, Timmy. Neat.
But nope. Case in point: a terrifying new gameplay trailer for Darkwood, the procedurally generated top-down survival horror game we showed you two months back. Incidentally, there's an Indiegogo campaign going on for the game, so if Darkwood seems like something you'd want to check out, have a look.
Shinji Mikami, creator of the Resident Evil series is making a new survival horror game, The Evil Within. You've seen the trailer, now let's see what the man behind the madness has to say about it.
This is the first footage from Zombie Studios' latest, a survival horrory-looking game called Daylight. There's not yet much to know about it, besides that it's powered by Unreal Engine 4 and its world is entirely randomly generated.
The fear of the unknown is powerful. Darkwood takes that idea to heart: it's a top-down procedurally generated survival horror game. This means that every time you play, you'll experience something different.
Some would contest whether or not Dead Space was ever a scary franchise, but most will agree that Dead Space 3 focuses more on being an action title. In a recent NowGamer interview, Dead Space 1 writer Antony Johnston explained why he thinks the added action emphasis occurred.
As far as first impressions go, Progrestar's Facebook zombie survival game The Last One isn't doing itself any favors. I show up in the game world wholly unprepared for the task ahead of me—torn pants, a chest wrap and a metal pipe against legions of flesh-hungry walking dead.
This infographic from sporting goods megastore REI—visiting the one in Denver was like going to Six Flags—isn't just amusing, it's in fact helpful. I never knew how to properly use a signal mirror before now. (Yes, I was a Boy Scout. No, I was not a good one. My only merit badge came for surviving the explosion of a…
