  1. The makers of Contradiction Spot the Liar have come out with a new FMV game and....it actually looks quite good! Trailer It wasn't the trailer that got me interested though, it was a playthrough of the first section by some Australian streamers I've followed for ages. (Warning for swears and obv. some spoilers.) Looks really nicely done for FMV!
  2. About time the PS5's most promising game gets its own thread. So what is Returnal? If you'd throw Housemarqe's arcade heritage, roguelikes, Tom Cruise's Edge of Tomorrow/Live Die Repeat, Bloodborne and a pinch of P.T. in a blender, you'd get Returnal. For an overview: https://www.playstation.com/en-gb/games/returnal/ Reveal trailer: Then there is this Game Awards trailer: And there is my favourite trailer, the recently released gameplay trailer that is an onslaught of particles, neon coloured bullets, massive tentacled creatures, sci-fi mystery and cool music. Watch in 4K and with good sound: More info on the PS Blog: https://blog.playstation.com/2020/12/10/returnal-launches-on-ps5-march-19-2021/ I have high hopes for this and that's also based on things I can't talk about.
  3. Come on lads, no one made a thread for this? If it were another remake there'd have been one instantly and it'd be on the third page of replies by now. Capcom's worst kept secret, RE VIIIAGE sees Ethan go to Romania, where there's witches, werewolves and vampires to suplex. Next gen exclusive, no date beyond "2021" yet.
  4. So, I've been looking forward to this for quite some time - particularly for the amazing 1-bit art style that the game possesses. Basically, it's an RPG that revolves around your character investigating all manner of Junji Ito inspired abominations, and/or surviving the happenings around a very strange mid-80s Japanese town. I haven't got a lot to go on, as I'm going in blind and it's only just released on Steam for a crisp £11.39 , but initial impressions have been positive. There's also been a demo circulating, which you can find here: http://www.wohgame.com/ EDIT: And as @Goose has wonderfully mentioned, this is out on PC Gamepass right now as well! The developer is intending to release later this year on PS4 and Switch, if you're interested. In the meantime, I'll be back later with my own impressions of it. I'll be very upset of it's a bit pap, but that's life!
  5. It's a French series about a young woman who has been writing successful horror novels with the inspiration of her recurring nightmares about a witch, Marianne. When she decides to stop writing about her after 15 years, her nightmares return with a vengeance, seemingly intersecting with her real life, thus forcing her to return to her hometown to find out what is happening. I know, doesn't really sound like anything new, but I'm 4 episodes in and very pleasantly surprised. There are some wonderfully eerie scenes that truly manage to build suspense. Without spoiling anything, there is also an actress who is very, very good at being the creepy grandma of nightmares.
  6. After strange disappearances hit Tokyo’s population, it’s up to you to uncover the source and purge the city of a strange, new evil. Armed with your own mysterious abilities, you will face down the occult, unravel conspiracy theories and experience urban legends like never before. Don’t fear the unknown. Attack it. Ghostwire: Tokyo is an action-adventure video game played from a first-person perspective. The player can use various psychic and paranormal abilities to defeat the ghosts and spirits haunting Tokyo. Combat director Shinichiro Hara described the combat as "karate meets magic", as the player character utilizes hand movements inspired by Kuji-kiri hand gestures to cast spells. When an enemy loses most of their health, its core is exposed and the player can use takedown moves to destroy it, killing the spirit. GhostWire: Tokyo is the newest title by Tango Gameworks, the developer behind The Evil Within. The game was first revealed during Bethesda’s 2019 E3 press conference. Tango Gameworks is known for its work in the horror game genre and while this game definitely seems to have some spooky vibes, Tango notes that this is more of an action-adventure game. Official reveal trailer: Latest trailer: Announced exclusively for PS5 in 2022.
  7. Yes. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bubsy/bubsy-paws-on-fire-spicy-extras
  8. And it's for mobile devices... https://www.gameinformer.com/2019/01/07/alien-isolation-is-getting-a-mobile-sequel Excuse me whilst I go and have a sneaky cry in the work toilets.
  9. https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2018-12-04-those-ubisoft-club-points-youve-been-accumulating-for-the-last-ten-years-will-soon-expire So Ubisoft have decided to start expiring their Ubisoft Club points after 2 years, meaning that all your carefully horded points that are older than than that will be wiped out on April 1st, 2019. I think you have until March 2019 to spend any points that are due to expire. You can see how many points you’ll lose here: https://welcome.club.ubisoft.com/en-US/units Is this a travesty, or a shoulder shrug for people? Personally, I’m going to lose over 900 points according the link above, but I can’t really find anything to spend them on (which is why I have over 1600 points in the first place). Your thoughts?
  10. So this preview was shown to a bunch of unsuspecting schoolchildren. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/apr/27/peter-rabbit-hereditary-trailer-years-scariest-film-australia-perth?CMP=soc_567 Someone is going to be in a lot of trouble for this. On the other hand you couldn't ask for better viral marketing for a horror movie.
  11. All of your votes have now been tallied, and this has been hands down one of the greatest years for video games since 1998. Or was it 2001. Actually it might have been 2010… Anyway, what is definitely true is that in the last few years the breadth and variety of games available has been truly exceptional, and despite living in a “games as service” era where many publishers are relying on loot box revenue as their business model, there are just so many great games available that it’s possible to still make an informed choice to avoid it. The big success this year has of course been the Nintendo Switch, with many people returning to the Nintendo fold after the less than successful Wii U saw many a fan pass over it despite the great collection of games. Now with added portability, but in a robust and convenient package, we can finally play all those games re-released again for a mere £50 each. A small price to pay to hide and play Mario Kart on the bog, instead of with your friends and family. In other news, whilst everyone else was busy mortgaging their houses to buy more Switch games, a few power hungry gamers also sold their car as well, to invest in the XboneX, Microsoft’s answer to the ongoing problem of still being able to see pixels if you insist on playing games with your nose pressed against the screen for that added immersion. More graphically capable than anything ever released on the earth, and that’s the truth, because someone who has one told me. Several times. That does leave the humble PS4 and its bigger brother however, who’s expanding library of excellent exclusives has been steadily catching out the unawares, bolstered by a slew of titles for the PSVR platform because it’s probably going to become really popular any day now. Once you’ve spent an afternoon getting it set up and calibrated, those 5 minutes you are in VR before chundering all over your friend’s sofa which is now your home will be the best you’ve ever spent. Oh what’s that? Some good games came out on the PC this year? Sorry I thought PCs were what people used to use for Word processing and stuff before they invented Macbooks. Steam? Oh hundreds of cheap and increasingly brilliant and complex games sounds interesting, how much does a PC for gaming cost nowadays? Uhuh……………... Fuck off. NEXT UPDATE: the top 20 begins.* *final list note: for the top games of 2017 I was originally going to do a top 10, but due to the sheer number of great games 20 seems like the better number to count down from this year, and that means any game that scored at least 10 points in the poll. Don’t worry if some of your favourites don’t make it into the top 20, I will also be honouring other runners up after the main list and other category awards, as there were so many great games in there. I’m just doing them after the main event to preserve some mystery...

  12. Not a fan at all, but I've always found Morrissey's interviews good value for money and always considered him to be self-aware and at least having a sense of his own ridiculousness. I'm really taken aback by how defensive and unable to take criticism he is in this video. I never thought I'd hear Morrissey, of all people, refer to journalists as "haters", for goodness sake, and his moaning about his record not being played because of some organised conspiracy against him is just pitiful, paranoid and completely off base. The stuff he says about journalists having an agenda against him is simply based on his new record not being very good and his complete lack of relevance to anyone under 40, not some carefully constructed masterplan to undermine him by sending negative messages to his fanbase via the music press. Concluding his miserable little moan with a sickeningly cynical message to the victims of the Manchester bombing completely undermined any credibility he might have had left. Terrible cunt.
  13. Watched this on the weekend - had heard good things about it for a while. Okay, so the plot isn't that original (it even jokes about it during the film) as it obviously is influenced by films like groundhog day. Haven't seen a horror try this time loop like this before though. The lead actress (Jessica Rothe) is one to watch out for in the future. Sure, with films like this the looping day can get a bit tired but i think it pulled it off well and kept the running time at a decent 96 minutes. There are some good twists in the film and whilst it is not overly gorey or anything, it works really well. I have heard people call it a teens film and i can kinda agree with that but it was still worth watching.
  14. I'm surprised not to find a topic on this game. Just saw a trailer in another thread and it looks very interesting. Clearly H. R. Giger inspired even if they don't mention it in the Kickstarter, but that's what piqued my interest.
  15. Darkwood is a lovecraftian top down action adventure horror game I've had my eye on for a while. It just came out recently for 11 quid on steam.... http://store.steampowered.com/app/274520/Darkwood/ I was going to wait for a sale, but the developer has done something very interesting to combat "key reselling" which I was unaware of. They've released the full game on piratebay... https://pirateproxy.cam/torrent/18469605/Darkwood_-_hotfix_3_(developer_s_torrent) "Hi! This torrent was brought to you by the developers of Darkwood - Acid Wizard Studio. This is the latest version of Darkwood at the time of writing this (1.0 hotfix 3). Completely DRM-free. There's no catch, no added pirate hats for characters or anything like that. We have just one request: if you like Darkwood and want us to continue making games, consider buying it in the future, maybe on a sale, through Steam, GOG or Humble Store. But please, please, don't buy it through any key reselling site. By doing that, you're just feeding the cancer that is leeching off this industry. This torrent comes with no installer, so you can just run it from the mounted image, but we recommend copying the contents to your disk and running it from there. For more info on our story and why we decided to share this with you, check out: http://imgur.com/a/xVhDz Have fun!" I was planning on waiting for a sale anyway, so I'll buy it when it gets cheap. Interesting tactic though!
  16. PS5? PS4 Pro 2? Vita 2? PSVR Headset Ver 2.0? (It will almost certainly not be as exciting as any of these options) Cast your bets! I'm going with PS5, coming 2018, World's Most Powerful console. Most likely going to be announced/revealed at Paris Games Week.
  17. I've no interest whatsoever in the full 3D horror game Lucius but this demake that's on sale right now caught my eye with it's C64 colour pallette and despite some minor things that wouldn't be able to be done on the C64 (zooms and that font size) I've had a great time playing it so far. It's a little rigid to begin with but it opens up, becoming a little confusing until you understand how the house is laid out. Like it's bigger brother this game is about playing a 70's style demon child, wandering around a house doing chores to appear to be good while setting up situations to kill whichever adult is in your (literal) bad book. So it's like Jack the Nipper crossed with those horror games that CRL released back in the 80's. It plays like one of those 80's style clunky arcade adventure games but if you've missed that sort of thing it's on sale for the next day on Steam.
  18. An esports reality TV show starts tomorrow, with two teams of Counter Strike Global Offensive players competing to win a professional contract while living in the same house. It's got the potential to be profoundly awful, I can't wait.
  19. I couldn't find a thread for this so apologies if a duplicate. After playing this at EGX last year I picked this up today for it's paltry budget price. If you liked Inside then just go buy Little Nightmares now. I'm I think about half way through and it is utterly brilliant. It's looking like being one of my favourites games so far this year and that's saying something given the year we've had already. Basically take Inside, a dash of Trapdoor, Little Big Planet and a dash of your childhood fears and you're there. I urge people to not watch spoilers and take the plunge. I just hope the rest holds up to what I've played so far. As info this runs at 60fps on PS4 Pro and at a higher res, looks fine on my standard model though.
  20. Mods, please merge if there's a topic already. Anybody watch this through? it's an anthology horror series in the mold of American Horror Story, but instead of the OTT melodrama that show works with, this attempts to be much creepier. The first season is based on the Creepypasta Candle Cove. It centres on a man returning to his home town after being plagued by dreams and images of a scary puppet TV show from his childhood. Think an evil version of Captain Pugwash and you're pretty much there. Structure-wise it's very much in the Stephen King wheelhouse, but tonally it's much more Silent Hill. The slow pacing and the unavoidable sense of dislocation's quite chilling. Well, at least for a while - sad to say I found it ultimately disappointing as it's laboriously slow and the quality of the performances a bit hit and miss. It also manages to get less and less frightening as it goes on. Loads of stuff in it to like though, and I'd recommend seeing it through. A supercut trimming it to half the time would be great (something I reckon Stranger Things would benefit from, too) as I reckon SyFy stretched the content ultra-thin to make a season out of a story you could easily fit into feature film length. I enjoyed it enough to look forward to the second season, though: The No-End House
  21. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/686144604/hellhunter I've just backed this on kickstarter after seeing the following gif From the looks of the trailer it seems to involve a Witcher 3 style game loop of investigating clues to discover what type of creature you're hunting, and then picking the right weapon/strategy to get rid of it. It looks unlikely that it'll meet its goal at this point, but I figured it was worth telling people about as it looks fucking superb!
  22. Old news actually but I forgot to post about it. http://www.sonicretro.org/2016/10/people-making-sonic-movie/ Yes. Live Action.
  23. https://youtu.be/PEi7VX5KAUI Horror comes in various forms, what I may find scary others might find it boring. The scares are even more intensified when watched at four in the morning every morning, with the lights off in the whole house and the factor of fright being the highest it can get. This is what I got down to out of the 29 movies I saw leading up to Halloween.
  24. I don't know if you folks are aware of Shudder but it has just launched in the UK. It is a streaming service just like Netflix but dedicated solely to the horror genre. I've been using the service for about a week now and love it, I just thought I would post this here as a heads-up to anyone who might be interested but not aware of it, you can sign up for a seven day trial, perfect for some halloween viewing at the very least. https://www.shudder.com/ How Shudder choose what they stream - http://www.denofgeek.com/uk/other/shudder/44558/shudder-colin-geddes-and-sam-zimmerman-interview
