Join me for some spooky mansion action at 4pm EST! Feel free to comment on this post directly or head off to my Twitch Page to chat with me as I play!
It’s now officially October and that means horror games! I’m planning on peppering this spookiest of months with plenty of horror goodness, so stay tuned for all of the awesome horror that awaits. Today, I played through the first chapter of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories. One of the better recent games in the series, this game has some very interesting elements and makes decent use of the Wii remote.
Many would agree that one of the most neglected and misrepresented genres out there in video games nowadays is horror. Most of the established horror series, Resident Evil and Silent Hill for example, have evolved through the years to incorporate action-based gameplay. Recently, a trend has emerged in the games that have been successful with scaring the pants off their players. Stripping players of all the power they usually have in games like that leaves you feeling unnerved and exposed. First-person horror adventure game Among the Sleep looks to do just that by putting you in the shoes of a toddler.
