Well, Amy the downloadable survival horror game we’ve all been waiting for is out. If given the opportunity I always get a demo first, JUST to be safe. I feel that in the case of sad little speechless Amy try before you buy was the right choice. The game definitely feels like an old school survival horror game, the controls are a bit wonky, and it’s a bit slow moving.
The combat reeks of early Silent Hill, I definitely felt threatened with every enemy I fought. Have we evolved to the point where games like this that used to grip up and leave us on the edge of our seat just don’t cut it anymore? Has anyone else attempted the demo? Anyone bought the game? Can someone convince me to shed the 10 bucks for it? READ MORE
Finally.Amy has officially infected XBLA, and she can infect you too for 800 Microsoft Sorority Parties ($10). The PSN version won’t come until next week (Jan 17), because of that whole price change thing. That also means PlayStation owners will be able to get the game on the cheap just like their Xbox-based brethren.
Head past the break for a launch trailer made entirely of in-game footage. It’s glorious and I definitely recommend checking it out, especially now that the Silent Hill HD Collection has been pushed into March. READ MORE
If your wallet’s still hurting after all the Christmas gift-giving, an extra two bucks for the PSN version of Amy might be a big deal for you. Recently it was announced the game would be coming out next week for $12.99 on PSN and 800 MSP ($10) for XBLA. This caused a bit of confusion, so publisher Lexis Numérique clarified that the price difference is because of Microsoft’s wonky and totally pointless space currency.
Some fans of the game were a little upset that they were going to have to pay more for the game than their Xbox-based brethren, so now they’ve decided to leave it up to us, the consumer, to decide how all this is going to go down. You have two options: get Amy on Jan 10 for the original pricing, or have the PSN version’s price dropped but have the release postponed a bit. When you make up your mind how you’d like to have Amy, I suggest heading on over to the game’s Facebook page so you can partake in a poll. This is what democracy is all about people, so savor it.READ MORE
Well fuck me, this all just keeps getting better and better. As if getting the Silent Hill HD Collection in a few weeks (Jan 24) wasn’t enough, it was just announced via the AMY Facebook page that next week will bring us the highly anticipated arcade horror title. For a paltry $12.99 on PSN (€9.9 EU, £7.99 UK) or 800 Mutant Spring-Loaded Pompoms ($10) on XBLA you can kick monster hiney in AMY when it releases on Jan 10 for PSN and XBLA the following day.
Everything we’ve seen from the game so far points to it being an incredibly creepy game. If this sounds like your type of thing, and I’m sure it does, I suggest supporting it with your hard-earned money. Think of Amy, all alone, with no one to protect her. If you don’t get this game she will die, and that would make you a total dick. You don’t want that, do you? Oh, and head past the break for some creepy concept art. READ MORE
