Six years. That’s how long it took for Ubisoft’s I Am Alive to arrive, from announcement to release. For many, this amount of time builds up insane amounts of hype. After all, doesn’t the wait make something taste that much sweeter? For some, yes, yes it does. For others?
Well, they just couldn’t give two damns about the length of time a game takes so long as it’s good. So how do Adam and Jonny feel about this game? Was the wait worth it or should this be another XBLA/PSN title that you just happily avoid? READ MORE

I Am Alive is taking survival games to the next level. By that I mean they are making it incredibly real. Some would say the more real life you make a game the less fun it would be. I’ve definitely encountered people who have said things along the lines of “Whatever, that would never happen, it doesn’t make sense.” Well, technically that’s what video games are for. Giving us everything we can’t have in real life. Check out the video and draw up your own conclusion.
I Am Alive comes out Match 7th on the Playstation Network, and Xbox Live Arcade. READ MORE
Coming March 7th, 2012 on XBLA and PSN is Ubisoft’s action/survival horror game I Am Alive. Everyone I’ve spoken to regarding the game simply cannot wait to give it a shot (I’m included in that category), so any news just stokes the fire and gets us even more pumped up.
So, with that, below you can hear the theme to the game, which is composed by Jeff Broadbent (Transformers: Dark Of The Moon
). Check out Dead Pixels coverage of I Am Alive here
Xbox Live’s House Party is coming up this month. It aims to bring us a new XBLA title every Wednesday, and the roster of titles is pretty exciting. The event begins on Feb 15 with Warp for 800 MSP, and continues with Alan Wake’s American Nightmare on Feb 22 for 1200 MSP, Nexuis on Feb 29 for 800 MSP, and concludes with I Am Alive on March 7 for 1200 MSP. Those four games cover a wide variety of genres, from puzzles, to horror, to shooters, and survival/action.
Head past the jump for some pointers that could very well end up saving your life when the nukes drop, the dead rise, or the aliens invade. READ MORE
March might look pretty great with its trio of Silent Hill games and Operation Raccoon City, but February doesn’t look too shabby either. We all known about Resident Evil: Revelations that’s prepping for its Feb 7 release on the Nintendo 3DS, and now both Alan Wake for the PC and American Nightmare have been given release dates as well. Mr. Wake’s finally making his way to PC sometime next month and the more bite-sized American Nightmare is releasing on Feb 22. Now all we need is another Alan Wake to be announced with a 2012 release date and we’ll have three Silent Hills, three Resident Evils, and three Alan Wakes. Wouldn’t that be amazing?

I’m still not sure how I feel about the dramatic change in direction that I Am Alive has taken. I was definitely more interested in the original plot, and the games graphics definitely looked better. It also helped that the game took place in Chicago, and now I’m not quite so sure. The video below gives you an interview with one of the games creators, as he explains some key elements to the game.
No exact release date yet, but expect it to be hitting the Xbox Live Arcade first and Playstation Network a bit later. READ MORE
It’s no secret the world is ending this year. There are just too many ways for it all to come to a crashing halt, whether it’s by alien invasion, zombie infection, nuclear fallout, or any number of other possibilities — the point is, tell your loved ones how you feel because we’re all going to die. While I’m spreading some truth sauce on you, you should know there’s a pretty good chance a majority of us will die slowly and very painfully. You could be eaten alive by the hungry undead, die of radiation sickness, or you could find yourself in an alien’s sex dungeon where it probes you daily until it grows tired of you and blasts you with its Raygun.
Once January 2013 rolls around there probably won’t be many of us left. Our once glorious civilization, founded on the idea that you can call someone a douchenozzle and not get reprimanded because everything you say online is anonymous. However, there is still some hope. Sure, most of us will meet with gruesome deaths, but there are some here that will survive. How long you survive is entirely up to how intelligent, physically fit, and resourceful you are. If you’d like to increase your chances of making it in the inevitable apocalypse, here are ten games coming out this year that can help you out. READ MORE
Not sure if this game will be horror or not, but it sounded pretty great, and had an I Am Legend feel. The game is looking at a 2009 release, on all the current game consoles. You take on the role of Adam, who seems to be on his way to work in Chicago when disaster strikes. Nothing is known so far about what has happened to the city, but you are one of the few left alive.
