It’s been a fun time here for the ole RPG crew, but now it’s time to dive into something primal. Let’s face it, at some point in time we’ve all been freaked out and haunted for days (in some cases years) because of something in a video game. The best part is that the game itself may not even be a horror game, but for some reason the developers decided to include nightmare fuel. So without further introduction, this is Iggy and Mr.Dragon’s Top Ten scariest moments in video games. This time Iggy takes the fright stage.
Challenging and Addictive
When Dark Souls first came out, I heard nothing but of how challenging the game was and how others couldn’t get past the various areas of the game. Then after a while, the same friends began talking of how much fun they had playing what had angered them so much before. After a while I decided to buy the game and try it for myself because surely if they’re having this much fun playing through the story and replaying it on New Game+ can’t be that hard. Click below to read more and to learn how I felt after playing through this title.
The name that popularized the phrase “survival horror”. In 1995, Resident Evil changed the landscape for gaming as we know it, just look at the most critically acclaimed game today and you’ll see the influence. That being said, the name Resident Evil has been sullied in the eyes of fans. So in response to that, I decided to take a glance at the high point for the Resident Evil franchise. The game that changed the series for better or worse. It’s time to go to Not Spain for Resident Evil 4.
Still Frightening After All These Years
Welcome to another retrospective review on a title known to be one of the most scary franchises to date, but with one small difference. I have never played a Silent Hill game. So not only will this be a retrospective, it will also be a completely blind review. So does this old Playstation (One) title still hold up even after all of these years? Click below to read more and we’ll find out.
As Halloween looms ever closer, yet another review from the RPG crew dawns upon yee. I’ll just get this right out of the way, puppets freak me out. Most human puppet designs are freaky plus how they move just messes with my head. So of course I simply had to play a game where the setting is a puppet show. So what exactly does this PS3 exclusive have in store for this puppet fearing gamer? Well for that answer we have to go to the moon!
Dead Rising 2
Fighting and Waiting your Way to the End
Now here’s a game near and dear to my heart. This was a title I looked forward so much as I got the “Dead Rising 2: Case Zero” demo/DLC just to prepare for the things to come and to learn of any more story that I could experience among just playing the general game. But have these years really made this title age well? Click to read my review on Dead Rising 2.
Halloween month rolls on with and of course I am back with yet another Nintendo related review. It’s like I must like their brand somehow, crazy right? Well now I’ll be looking at a sequel to the cult hit Luigi’s Mansion. Now I haven’t played Luigi’s Mansion since 2004, so this review won’t be focusing the progression the series made but rather as a stand alone game. So what exactly does Nintendo have in store for the best sidekick in all of gaming? Well grab your vacuums and lets suck up some ghosts for Luigi!
Definitely sets a Marker in its Genre
This year marks the sixth anniversary of Dead Space’s U.S. release of October 13, 2008. So in honor of this year’s special Halloween month, what better way to celebrate than to play the game that made the survival horror genre more modern and look at what made the game great, along with other aspects that could have been improved. Just like with The Last of Us, this review will be based off two playthroughs of Dead Space with a New Game+ for the Playstation 3
The Last of Us
Infecting Itself into your Collection
We’re starting off this special Halloween-themed month strong with Naughty Dog’s recent title, The Last of Us. Now that it’s a year after the game’s release and all of the hype behind it has died down, we can play through the game and see with for lack of better words, “clearer eyes”. This review will be based around the Playstation 3 version after two consecutive playthroughs (New Game along with a New Game+). With that said let’s get this started.
