Space Beast Terror Fright: The Alien Game We’ve Been Waiting For

With the disappointment of Aliens: Colonial Marines, and the mixed reactions to Alien: Isolation, fans of the Alien franchise, or just alien horror in general, have had a rough time getting a decent game.

Happy Wars on Xbox One: First Impressions

Happy Wars has been available since October 12, 2012 on the Xbox 360, but was recently released for the Xbox One console a few weeks ago.

Steam Greenlight Spotlight: The Human Gallery

Today’s Greenlight spotlight is on The Human Gallery, a horror game that foregoes the jump scares and focuses entirely on messing with your head. Horror games are definitely not one of my favorite genres, as they often end up being poor recreations of each other with little substance and cheap jump scares. I’ve always felt like horror games were all ...
