Just announced from companies Animantz and Dysotek, is the first person zombie shooter called Deadly Walkers. What they are pushing however is what sets them apart from most of the other droll zombie shooters. You MUST shoot a zombie in the head to kill it. I know, that sounds like a no brainer (eh? eh?). A lot of zombie games let you unload on a zombie and if you fill it with enough bullets it dies. They also move slow. Very slow. We’re talking early early zombie movie slow. But if you’re not careful you can get surrounded by massive hordes of them. Trailer, screens, and more past the break!
Coming soon is a big update to Anna which will then transform it into the Extended Edition. Anyone who has already purchased the game will receive this update for free. The games creators Kalypso Media took feedback from people who bought the game and implemented it into the update. Just a few things included in the update are enhanced graphics, more gameplay, more puzzles and much more. If you head past the break you can see the full list and check out a new live action video to celebrate the update. Pick the game up now for PC and Mac on Steam!
Indie horror game Home brought pixelated horror goodness to PC earlier this year and now it’s looking to find a home on Mac, iOS, and if enough of you ask for it, Android, too. Home is a great little horror game with a fantastically creepy soundtrack — if you haven’t played it you can grab it on Steam for a paltry $1.49. Trust me, it’s worth it.
In related news, the PC version has apparently been a success, as Home creator Benjamin Rivers revealed his game has made its way to over 100,000 gamers. That’s big for an indie game, and that success will mean free content that will come in the near future.
Because I’m not the proud owner of a Nintendo DS, I wasn’t able to enjoy the twisted beauty that is Dementium II when it first released back in 2010. Thankfully, it’s coming to the PC and Mac, so I’ll soon get my chance to experience it. Until now, we haven’t had a really good look at the port, which was first teased back in August. It looks delightfully creepy, and I am so into that. Check out the full trailer after the jump.
Vaylr Studios, the company behind Pray For Dark, seems to think so. Here’s the problem. They need their Kickstarter campaign funded or this game may never get finished. With only $2500 funded of the projected $400,000 needed they are quite short of their goal. We’ve been promised redefining games before and all have fallen short. Rule number 1 when making a game is never to announce that it could redefine a genre, or that it’s another games killer. The game does look pretty cool so far, you can check out the trailer past the break. Game facts go! They are also building the game around some of an artist known as Brom‘s art. The dev team considers the game so scary they call it psycho terror. The game follows main character known as “Sewer Man” or “Angel” who is blind but has special goggles that allow him to see. In turn he can slaughter the horrid creatures living in the sewers. More past the break.
My love for the fantastically creepy puzzle platformer Limbo is no secret. I’ve been anxiously waiting to hear about developer Playdead’s next project, like will it be Limbo 2, or something brand new? If this art is anything to go by, it looks like it’s going to be a little of both, actually. Some concept art for the studio’s next title, dubbed “Project 2,” has leaked out and it looks like a slightly more colorful if not still incredibly dreary (and I mean that in the best way imaginable) platformer.

Readers. Pay close attention. There is something about this game that pulls me in like a bee to honey. The mysteries of a seemingly unexplored world get my insides all jibbly. I know, thus far you are wondering what the frak I’m talking about. Let me explain. In Lifeless Planet you play as a lone astronaut who takes on a one way mission with a few others to a planet well outside our solar system. The planet brings promise of being like another Earth. Somewhere we could settle and grow into a habitable world. However, upon landing your astronaut friends go missing leaving you to explore this planet alone. But exploring you find a desolate land, that looks as if it was already temporarily inhabited by the Russians. They are no longer there and that becomes the mystery. Ugh, I can’t wait for this game. You must MUST check out the screens and the trailer past the break.
Earlier today Poland-based developer Reality Pump Studios unveiled Sacrilegium, a brand new survival horror game that’s in development for all major platforms. This is a big departure from the studio’s past work, which includes the new RPG series Two Worlds. I have some screenshots and a synopsis for the game waiting for you after the break, but you’ll have to earn it. I want you to say Sacrilegium five times fast without messing up, no cheating, I’ll know if you cheat, before you can read the synopsis. Now put those tongues to work, people!
It took over a decade to get here, but the undisputed king of the dungeon crawlers is back, and oh my fuck does it taste good. Being a fan of this game is like being in an abusive relationship. You’ll invest your time, heart, and soul into this game–possibly ruining your social life in the process–and in return you’ll get one of the best gaming experiences available, peppered with the occasional Error 37 and a mean case of carpel tunnel. Head past the break for my tale of delicious terror. READ MORE
It’s nice to see studios taking risks, but it’s even better when a studio takes a risk with a game that’s decidedly outside the box. Granted, developer Krillbite is an indie studio so the need to please stockholders and the like isn’t there, but still, this game is different, and I love that. Their current project is Among the Sleep, an atypical horror game that puts you into the footy pajamas of a two year-old child who can’t seem to get to sleep. From this perspective we get to see a child’s nearly limitless imagination, fueled by the dark surroundings of their home. According to the studio’s website, you’ll be presented with “both physical and mental obstacles that challenge your creativity.” I’m not entirely sure what type of game this is, but a first person puzzle horror game from the perspective of a two year-old sounds more than a little intriguing. Check out an early gameplay trailer after the jump.
Diablo fans will remember the secret Cow Level in Diablo II where you fought the most terrifying evil of all: hell bovines. Forget Diablo and his hellish siblings, because legions of battleaxe-wielding cows is where the terror’s really at. The secret Cow Level might’ve been a little strange, but this newly discovered area in Diablo III takes the rainbow-colored cake. Back when the game was first revealed, some fans of the series weren’t all that enthused about its colorful new look. Now, Blizzard has immortalized their frustrations in the Whimsyshire–a realm that’s brimming with rainbows, unicorns and other amazing things. Also, I want to live here. Check it out after the jump.
The rumors are true. I’m a Diablo virgin. I’ve not ever touched the 1st 2 games. And thanks to Error 37, I haven’t played the 3rd. The trailer past the break gives you a sweet breakdown of all your character choices in the game. I know I definitely need a rundown before playing. Has anyone actually been able to get in? How is it? Tell me wonderful stories to make me jealous. Who else is locked out?
Diablo III had an astonishing 2 million pre orders and over 8000 midnight launch events, so it’s not a surprise that when I try to get on the servers to play it wont let me. You can only prepare so much I guess for the oncoming demonic onslaught. Diablo III has already become internet famous for it’s “error 37″ message when you attempt to log in. It basically says the servers are busy because a bajillion fans who have been waiting for 12 years to play the game are all sitting at their computers with Mountain Dew Pitch black and 40 bags of cheetos trying to log in at the same time. Head past the break for some hilarious memes, and hang in there! I’m hanging in there by attempting to edit my Mass Effect 2 game save because I got some people killed I didn’t want to. Oh Bioware! You are ruthless!
If you thought that some of the die hard Diablo fans have moved on over the years, you my friends are wrong. Amazon is reporting that Diablo III is the most pre-ordered PC game of all time on Amazon. It even beat out such games at Starcraft II and World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Want to help bring that pre-order number up even higher? Pre-order it now from AMAZON! And get it in time for it’s release on the PC and Mac on May 15th.
12 years is a damn long time to wait for a sequel. But a game like Diablo and Diablo II people are still playing to this day. But finally coming out on May 15th is Diablo III for the PC and Mac. Past the break you can check out an awesome TV commercial for the game that you may have already seen if you watch TV a lot. Obviously the trailer looks nothing like the game, but it’s still epic and awesome. Enjoy!
March was a busy month for horror fans. We got Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Silent Hill: Downpour and the Silent Hill HD Collection, but there was another survival horror game that was overshadowed by the major releases. This game is Lone Survivor, an arcade title for PC and Mac that blends gorgeous retro-inspired visuals with many of the things we love about the survival horror genre like item conservation, creepy monsters, exploration, and puzzle solving. If Resident Evil and Silent Hill left you a little disappointed this could make your forget all about them. Head past the break for more!
Has every night since The Walking Dead’s season finale been a struggle for you as you fought to overcome the shakes and sweats that are telltale signs of WDW, or Walking Dead Withdrawal? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Thankfully, a game just came out that can help you get your Walking Dead fix, and it’s also way cheaper than black tar heroin. Head past the jump for my review of The Walking Dead Episode 1.
I’m not. Well, probably not. If you own Portal 2, a Mac, or a PC, I’ve got some exciting news. Valve has announced the Portal 2 Perpetual Testing Initiative. Basically it’s a super streamlined level/puzzle builder for Portal 2. People have already created tons of them, but the process of sharing isn’t that easy. This will make it very easy to create and share with anyone and everyone. Just hop on to the puzzle maker, create your masterpiece and publish it to the workshop for your friends to play and be stumped.
The Walking Dead Episode 1 kind of snuck up on me, but immediately upon learning it was out last night I decided to do something I haven’t done in years. That’s right, I actually bought something from PSN. The game’s currently only available on the PS3, PC and Mac, with the Xbox 360 version set to release sometime in the (hopefully) near future. This is the first of five episodes Telltale Games has planned to come out over the coming weeks and because it’s fairly short — it’ll take you around 2 hours — it only costs a paltry $5. I spent about an hour with it last night and while I won’t give it all away here so you actually have a reason to check out my upcoming review of the episode, it’s pretty fucking awesome. Feel free to feast your eyes on the launch trailer after the break. READ MORE
BioShock 2 has finally made its way to Macs everywhere. You Mac gamers can download it right now for I believe $30.99. Weird, but alright. I personally LOVED BioShock 2. A lot of people thought it was an unnecessary sequel. I don’t care, it was still an awesome game. Moving on, go buy it! Also, the Minerva’s Den DLC is incredible. If you own

I think it’s a little cheap naming a game World Of The Living Dead, when it turns out to be not at all what you think it’s going to be. I was expecting a zombie game in the vein of the Living Dead series, but it turns out to be an in browser Dungeons and Dragons type game. I posted about this game almost a year ago, and that’s when you could sign up for the beta. So if you did and forgot, well, SURPRISE!
World Of The Living Dead has no release date but is coming to the PC, Mac, Linux, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Smartphones, Android etc etc. Screens past the break. If you want to sign up for the beta click that source link below. READ MORE
Screens past the break. Counter-Strike GO will be available this summer for the PC, Mac, Xbox 360 via XBLA, and Playstation 3 via PSN. READ MORE
It isn’t a secret that Mac computers get the dick as far as video game releases are concerned. But a lucky few get squeezed through. Some take longer than others, but RAGE: Campaign Edition is now available for Mac users worldwide. Lucky you, you’ll have access to the sewer missions I missed out on because I didn’t buy the DLC or pre-order the game. You buy, now?
