Aside from what I’d seen in a few trailers, I wasn’t sure what to expect going into The Evil Within for the first time. Since Resident Evil was the series that got me into horror across all mediums and Shinji Mikami, the man behind that series, was at the helm for this game, I knew I would likely be on board. What I ended up with was a horror experience that was reminiscent of the past games that I loved, delightfully atmospheric and occasionally frustrating.
When I heard about Neverending Nightmares I was instantly drawn to the game. As a child, I had my fair share of nightmares and occasionally, I would experience some that were particularly difficult to wake from. As such, this game has really resonated with me thus far and is one of the scarier games this year. With the likes of Alien Isolation and P.T. out this year, that’s quite a compliment. I’ll hold off my final judgement until I finish the whole thing, but color me impressed with what I’ve experience thus far with this terrifying game. Hit the jump below for the video!
Knots instantly formed in my stomach the first time I read the words “downloadable content” in relation to Nintendo. My younger self was screaming about robbing the world of the joys of unlocking content by playing the game instead of whipping out your credit card. Doomsday theories started forming in my mind about the terrible sort of DLC exploitation I might see down the line. It’s been quite a while since that moment and none of those fears have come to pass. Frankly, I feel like they’ve done a good job of approaching the situation in a positive way that has thus far benefitted customers.
