I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be making its episodic debut a week later than originally planned — see revised release dates below — to allow for some additional fine-tuning. There’s always the Resident Evil HD remake to hold you over.
The good news is the bad news wasn’t all that bad, and we have some spooky monster footage, courtesy of the lovely folks at Capcom who only want the best for us. Continue reading →
Jason Voorhees won’t be returning from his decades long vacation from video games for another nine months and he’s already claimed his first victim. Last week, the Kickstarter page for the indie slasher game Last Year was taken down and replaced with a claim of a copyright violation submitted by the rights holders of the Friday the 13th film franchise.
We’ve mentioned Last Year on a couple of our shows, and have been really excited since hearing about it, we even made the comparison between the two games. Continue reading →
Variety reports that, as Sega looks to turn more of its videogames into other forms of entertainment, it has hired former Break Media executive Evan Cholfin to lead those efforts.
Cholfin now serves as head of development and production at Tokyo-based Stories International, a joint venture of Japanese gamemaker Sega and Hakuhodo DY Group (the world’s seventh-largest advertising agency) that was launched to produce films, TV shows and entertainment for digital platforms in 2011.

Eli Roth has launched a mobile game based on his upcoming The Green Inferno, in theaters September 5.
The movie follows a group of student activists who from New York City travel to the Amazon to protect a dying tribe, but crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they saved.
The game, which is absolutely free on both iTunes and Google Play – starts in the jungle, after a big plane crash, where we find eight survivors surrounded by ravenous opponents. Continue reading →
Game creator Edmund McMillen has posted a new track from the upcoming video game The Binding Of Isaac: Rebirth, which is said to be coming out by the end of this year. The track, entitled “Genesis 22:10″, is the new title screen music and is composed by Ridiculon (Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans). You can listen to it in the replies, and you can listen to Edmund on our podcast here. Oh hey, Edmund, if you need a couple of beta testers, you know we got your back. Continue reading →
In some of the biggest nonsense I’ve heard lately: Shinji Mikami’s upcoming survival horror game The Evil Within — known as Psycho Break in Japan — is clearly a hotly anticipated game both here and overseas. Unfortunately, those who reside in Japan will either have to endure a censored version of the game or preorder it to gain access to The Gore Mode DLC, which unlocks all of the blood and viscera you could ever want. Continue reading →
The third and final batch of DLC for The Last of Us is scheduled to arrive this week on PS3. Ahead of its imminent release, Sony has released a new trailer that shows off the four new multiplayer maps the Reclaimed Territories pack will bring with it, including Wharf, Capitol, Coal Mine, and Water Tower.
You have a few options here: you can get all of it with the season pass, which Sony will discontinue on May 13, or you can purchase them individually Continue reading →
Today Bethesda released a new gameplay trailer for The Evil Within, the next horror game from Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami. I can’t even begin to explain how excited I am!
The Evil Within releases on August 26th for PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
We try to cover all things horror here, and we don’t cover a whole lot of video games, but we’re pretty excited for the Silence of the Sleep. It’s a 2D adventure horror game, being developed by one guy. It’s a real survival horror game, in the sense that you can’t fight, you run, hide or die. Creepy music, dirty environments, weird creatures, fills my black heart with joy!
