ESH | Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 1 & 2 Review

Pro­foundly spooky loca­tions and dark fore­bod­ing design are often the land­mark for an effec­tive hor­ror game. What could be more ter­ri­fy­ing than run­ning for your life in a dark for­est or an aban­doned insane asy­lum? Bendy and the Ink Machine takes this idea and flips it on its head by pro­vid­ing an incred­i­bly scary expe­ri­ence, while using graph­ics straight out of a car­toon from the 1930s. The first two episodes, that have been released thus far, are very short, but they man­age to instill a sense of dread even while invok­ing those clas­sic car­toons and they look damn good while doing it.

ESH | Narcosis Review

Pres­sure can mean a few dif­fer­ent things; It’s either force phys­i­cally being exerted upon an object or a sit­u­a­tion impart­ing emo­tional force to a per­son. Honor Code has expertly com­bined these two def­i­n­i­tions into one game in Nar­co­sis, a new hor­ror game set deep beneath the sea. Not all of the game­play hooks are exe­cuted as well as I’d like, but the care put into the atmos­phere and over­all sense of dread as you attempt to escape from the ocean floor very suc­cess­fully makes Nar­co­sis a nar­ra­tive expe­ri­ence worth try­ing out.

ESH | Dying: Reborn Review

Escape rooms have grown in pop­u­lar­ity, espe­cially in the last year or so. Many video games made an effort to emu­late these pop­u­lar real life attrac­tions as well recently to vary­ing degrees of suc­cess. Putting a hor­ror spin on the con­cept, Dying: Reborn is a flawed expe­ri­ence that never feels great to play, while admirably attempt­ing to cre­ate an inter­est­ing hor­ror story.

The Platinum Diaries | Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Why This Game?

I would be lying if I didn’t say that this one wasn’t per­sonal. Res­i­dent Evil is one of my favorite series and I can con­fi­dently say that this lat­est entry is one of the best yet. Res­i­dent Evil 7: Bio­haz­ard being a rel­a­tively short game over­all also con­tributed to my drive to make this my first plat­inum tro­phy of the series, though it being an immensely fun game didn’t hurt. Look­ing at the ini­tial tro­phy list, it didn’t seem like too much of a tough one to tackle, but like any plat­inum, there are a few obsta­cles that are easy to under­es­ti­mate when you’re sim­ply star­ing at a list. That being said, let’s break this one down.
