My 2 most-anticipated horror games come out after Halloween

I’m experiencing a bit of a dilemma. Horror games have been making a bit of a comeback, especially this year. Alien Isolation and The Evil Within are two significant, AAA, winter season releases, and are both thoroughly hardcore horror games. I love horror, so I should be happy. But, I’m not. I’m disappointed. I have more »

Killing isn’t easy in Bio Inc.

It’d be easy to overlook a mobile game like Bio Inc. The title sounds similar enough to Plague Inc.: Evolved to convince someone it’s a clone. Plus, it’s an iOS and Android game. So many of those are released each week that it’s easy to overlook some. I did, and only discovered it because I more »

Shall We Date?: The Niflheim+ is the best

I suppose it was inevitable. With all of the horribly translated projects NTT Solmare released, one had to wonder how long it would be before one good game came alone. Well, Shall We Date?: The Niflheim+ is that game. This is the otome game to get. It isn’t because it’s Halloween-themed and it’s October, though more »
