‘Resident Evil 4’ Review – Capcom’s Updated Remake Perfects the Survival Horror Experience

There was a time when I personally believed that Resident Evil 4 never needed a remake. The original game that was released in 2005 has held up fantastically over the years and become such an influence on third-person action and horror games.

Where Dead Cells stands out from the crowd […]

‘Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse’ Review – A Long Lost Survival Horror Classic Returns

It’s hard to talk about the fourth entry in the long running Fatal Frame franchise in anything but a retrospective manner. Mask of the Lunar Eclipse was originally released for the Nintendo Wii nearly 15 years ago and was a collaboration between series creator Makoto Shibata and director/writer Goichi “Suda51” Suda (of No More Heroes […]

A Playground for the Rich – Exploring the Sick, Sad World of Brandon Cronenberg’s ‘Infinity Pool’

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Infinity Pool. Media criticizing the upper class is about a dime a dozen these days, truth be told.

‘Atomic Heart’ Review – A Disappointing and Frustrating “Spiritual Successor” Experience

Atomic Heart from developer Mundfish is quite the conundrum in the way that I kept asking myself, “how did this go so wrong?” Announced all the way back in 2017, the game has had a long development cycle fueled by player hype and expectation over what the game actually was or what it was going […]

The Pizza’s Still Cold: The Lasting Legacy of ‘The Slumber Party Massacre’ 40 Years Later

The slasher film. Across several decades, one of the most dominating sub-genres in the entire horror sphere. From the beginning days of the formative slashers in the 1970s, all the way to today’s reboots, sequels, and fresh originals.

Back in 2008 when the original Dead Space was released, players were almost immediately enamored with its action-inspired gameplay, space horror setting, and next-generation technology that elevated the experience to a level never seen before.

‘Mortal Kombat X’ Lets Us Imagine the Horror Icon Fighting Game We Desperately Need

Mortal Kombat just celebrated its 30th anniversary this past October and it got me thinking. Not about where the franchise can go from here, or who the top tier character is in Mortal Kombat 11 (it’s Cetrion, thank me later). No, instead the anniversary got me thinking about one of the more controversial aspects of […]

You know what rules? Vampires. You know what else rules? Westerns. Both of them are surprisingly under-utilized in games.
