Hot off the heels of The 3rd Birthday’s April 1st release date we’re finally getting the long awaited confirmation of the original Parasite Eve’s release. A few weeks before the highly anticipated followup hits store shelves the game that started it all will be available on the PSN. So if you missed the original or want to get caught up on the goings on in Aya Brea’s busy life, I definitely suggest you check it out for a paltry $5.99.
Parasite Eve is a survival horror RPG that’s based in New York in 1997 and follows the story of new NYPD recruit Aya Brea who has to contend with monsters and spontaneously combusting people. Sure, there’s a bit of dialogue and action here and there but that’s pretty much the gist of it. The 3rd Birthday isn’t the Parasite Eve 3 we’ve all been begging for since the second game released a decade ago but it’s not a direct followup to the main series though it does still follow longtime protagonist Aya. Head past the jump for some new action-packed 3rd Birthday screens. READ MORE
Earlier today Square Enix told the world they will be bringing the fantastic Parasite Eve and its sequel to the PlayStation Network sometime in the near future. Granted, this was brought to us by their Japan branch so nothing’s been confirmed for the rest of the world but looking at their pedigree I’d say it’s safe to bet we’ll be seeing the games as well.
This was confirmed by Tetsuya Nomura via The 3rd Birthday’s Twitter page that the series would be making its debut on the PlayStation 3. Perhaps, depending on how well the games are received we’ll finally be getting that true Parasite Eve 3 we’ve been begging for a decade now? READ MORE
The video games industry is an unforgiving world where highly anticipated games can be canceled without warning, or even worse, they can be thrown into the dread video game limbo. The fate of those who find themselves in the latter category rarely survive, instead fans are strung along for years with the promise of a release until the game meets its inevitable fate.
Unfortunately, Development Hell strikes horror games just as often, if not more so, than other genres. The most likely cause of this is how shaky the genre is, where long in development titles like Alan Wake get great reviews and tons of hype before falling short in the sales department. Then there are titles like Resident Evil that breaks all expectations, and surprise hits like BioShock. So if there’s a game you’ve been looking forward to for some time, read on to see the fifteen horror titles we’re foaming at the mouth to get our hands on. READ MORE
