In an interview with IGN, PlayStation’s Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation Don Mesa confirmed that Telltale’s episodic take on The Walking Dead will be coming to the PlayStation Vita sometime this year. No word on whether it will be released episodically or all at once — we’ll update as soon as we find out.
Everyone’s favorite engineer-turned-Necromorph slaying badass is taking a break from strategically dismembering monsters to make an appearance in PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale — ya know, that Sony version of Super Smash Bros. I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, but this certainly piques my interest a bit. See him curb-stomp that chick from Heavenly Sword after the jump.
So today I found out from somebody who knows somebody a little bit of exciting info about the upcoming Playstation 4 Dual Shock Controllers. They are looking pretty weird and pretty awesome. I still don’t like the thumb stick placement as opposed to the Xbox Controllers, but the redesigned thumb sticks could make up for it. It definitely looks like Sony is trying to incorporate some things their competitors are doing but on a smaller scale. Head past the break for a normal sized pic, and the specs we know so far.
Yep! It’s that time of year again. Thanksgiving is on Thursday, which means dutiful consumers are already preparing for the Holiday Shopping Season. If you think you’re exempt from that, think again. Either you know a fellow horror fan (or family member) in need, or you want something for yourself! You can take this as advice for what to buy, or what to ask for.
This third installment is all about games, toys and merch. The stuff you buy for the real horror fans in your life. We’ve got collectibles, clothes, sheets, apps and video games! Many thanks to BD Video Game guru Adam Dodd who shot over a few blurbs with some of his suggestions, he’s credited as “AD”.
Head inside to find that special something for that special someone. Again, I’ve made the images thumbnails so you can scroll more easily through the list – click to make big. READ MORE
Linkin Park has teamed up with Medal Of Honor Warfighter to bring you a music video for “Castle Of Glass”, which comes off their latest album Living Things (review). The video splices imagery of a family that has just learned that their soldier husband/father has died with band performance as well as images from the upcoming video game (out Oct. 23rd). You can watch the video below.
Personally, I think the video is too stylized and uses way too much slow-motion. “Castle Of Glass” is a faster paced song and using all that slo-mo drags down the energy of the song. What do you think? READ MORE
So here I am Capcom, down on my knees. Over at Gamespot during a video Q and A with Capcom producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi he admitted they weren’t currently working on a remake of Resident Evil 2. HOWEVER, he did say if the fans go nuts for it, and if there is enough of a push from the fans that would definitely be grounds to start the remake. Resident Evil 2 is the game that started me out and pulled me into horror gaming, so naturally I would do anything for a remake. You hear that Capcom? ANYTHING. He didn’t officially state how we should demand it. So, lets start a million petitions and start sending stuff to Capcom. But what?
Some would say Call Of Duty’s multiplayer has gotten stale. I would never say such a thing, because of the shear amount of people who play the damn game. Though if I were to make such a comment I would say Modern Warfare 3 just didn’t do it for me. Judging by what we have seen so far, and now what many of the top video game sites tell me in the video below I can’t wait to jump into Black Ops II. Obviously being set in the future for once a large amount of doors are open to awesome new vehicles, weapons, locations and more. Check out the Accolades Trailer below, and don’t forget the game is going up again Halo 4 releasing just one week after it on November 13th.
Silent Hill BOM (Bowel of movements) screens are here straight from this years PAX. I unfortunately don’t see myself making the purchase of a PS Vita anytime soon so I hope this gets ported elsewhere so I can give it a slam dunk into the garbage can. Anyone else have as little faith in this game as I do? Check out more screens past the break.
V/H/S is now available on various On Demand platforms (a month before its October 5 theatrical release!)! While iTunes (AppleTV) has it, it’s also hitting Amazon, Charter, Comcast, Google Play, DirecTV, Playstation 3, SuddenLink, Time Warner, VUDU and Xbox Zune via Magnet Releasing. You can find out exactly where to rent it by clicking here.
The filmmakers include Adam Wingard (You’re Next, A Horrible Way to Die, Pop Skull), Simon Barrett (You’re Next, Dead Birds, Red Sands), Ti West (The House of the Devil, The Roost, The Innkeepers), David Bruckner (The Signal), Joe Swanberg (Silver Bullets), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), along with YouTube sensations Radio Silence. And now we have a behind-the-scenes clip that features interviews with many of the above! It’s also got a ton of footage you haven’t seen in the trailers.
BD will not be reviewing the film. But it was made for true horror fans – so that’s where YOU come in! It would ROCK if you could write a review! We’ve also set up a pretty cool V/H/S HUB where you guys can live chat your thoughts on the film.
Head inside for the clip! READ MORE
Update: Thanks to our wonderful readers I have discovered the game IS available in the US. You can get it HERE!
For those of you who have been around BD and more so Dead Pixels know that Final Fantasy VII is my favorite game of all time. Well, you can download the digital PC version now from HERE for €9.99 normally €12.99. The problem for me, is that I, living in the US, cannot download the game. I’ve never been more let down. Head past the break for screens, a trailer, game info, and whatever I don’t give a crap.
Video game developers Capcom and Ninja Theory have confirmed today that both Noisia and Combichrist are the composers for DmC: Devil May Cry, the upcoming hack n’ slash action/adventure game for Xbox 360 and PS3. There will also be licensed Combichrist songs within the game. A sample of the soundtrack can be heard below (you can download it for free here).
Noisia states, “It’s been an awesome experience working with Ninja Theory on the game. We had great freedom but were also bound by certain criteria typical in the game world. These are challenging boundaries (for example; consistency in sonics over 180 minutes of music) but also lots of space in terms of dynamics & progression and instrumentation being able to create soundscapes without having to worry about holding the attention of a dancefloor. Their music director was great to work with, good vibes. It’s great when you get to play to your strengths. Also, the game kicks ass!”
Combichrist lead singer Andy LaPlegua adds, “As an avid gamer myself I was honored to be asked to work on this project. I had a lot of fun digging myself into Dante’s psyche in order to create music to match the battle scenes and am equally as excited to license existing Combichrist music. I’m looking forward playing the finished game when it comes out.” READ MORE
Cancel your trip to a local game retailer tomorrow because Silent Hill: Book of Memories has been delayed (again!) into an unspecified date sometime later this spring. The game was originally planned to release tomorrow, so a last second delay that I’m sure many fans hoping to get the game won’t realize right away, is more than a little surprising. Could the HD Collection’s plethora of game-breaking technical issues be the cause of this delay? I wouldn’t be surprised if it is.
After getting hacked, having confidential customer data stolen, and spending close to a month offline, Sony was sure to have lost a few fans. Sony’s offering of two free games for everyone and a free month of their PlayStation Plus and Qriocity services was an attempt at making amends for the debacle. It’s six weeks after coming back online, and at a shareholders meeting earlier today Sony said that 90% of PS3 owners have returned.
In reality, I’m thinking they should’ve said something along the lines of “90% of PS3 owners have returned to claim their free games,” since this really isn’t a solid way of understanding the effect the PS3′s downtime had on its user base. I’d much rather know how much of a decrease the number of people playing online has been since the incident, but I’m 90% sure I won’t get an answer to that. What I can get an answer to is how many of you have returned, and if you have, was it only to claim your rewards or have you actually played online and/or used the PS Store? READ MORE
We’re only a couple of weeks away from what could be the most fun video game release this year: Mortal Kombat. Seriously, just look at all the sweet stuff Dead Pixels has been writing about it! So, to build up the hype even more, the full track list for Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired By The Warriors has been released (check it out after the jump).
Could we finally be getting a third game in the Outbreak series? No confirmation yet but the French issue of the Official PlayStation Magazine is using promo art from the original Resident Evil: Outbreak on their cover. I sincerely hope this is the case. As an example of good timing it just so happens that Resident Evil’s 15th anniversary is coming up on March 22nd and that would be a perfect time to unveil such a long anticipated sequel.
Back in November we reported on SOCOM developer Slant Six’s supposed involvement with a multiplayer centric Resident Evil game codenamed Resident Evil: Raccoon City. And in case you were wondering, the big bold text on the cover translates to Guaranteed Chills! So is a chilling new Outbreak game something you’d like to see or is this a series that shouldn’t get reanimated? READ MORE
Coming in April, ‘Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired By The Warriors’ is a compilation of songs for many of your favorite characters from the upcoming Mortal Kombat game. The first track that is available is ‘Mileena’s Theme’, which you can pre-order either off of Amazon or iTunes. The album is being produced by JFK of MSTRKRFT.
Jason Graves has been officially announced as the composer of EA’s upcoming Dead Space 2, the sequel to the 2008 smash hit Dead Space. An interesting bit of news that has come out is that Graves has composed a central piece entitled ‘Lacrimosa’, a concerto written for a string quartet that runs throughout the game. I have to say, that alone intrigues me.
Call of Duty: Black Ops hits shelves this Tuesday, the 9th, so get your headset ready and warm up your thumbs, it’s gonna be a battle for the ages. But for those of you who can’t devote yourself 24/7 to your console, you can always enjoy the soundtrack, which is slated to be released on iTunes, as well as major retailers, the same day. Composer Sean Murray (Call of Duty: World At War, Junkyard Dog, Gang of the Dead) brings you 30 digital-only tracks that are sure to make you itch to shoot a couple of n00bs in the face. Meanwhile, to find out more about CoD: Black Ops, check out the official site here.
Pack up the plastic skulls and styrofoam tombstones and make sure you’ve hidden the candy the trick or treaters didn’t manage to get their grubby little hands on because Halloween’s over. But please, don’t let the looming Christmas fever depress you. Instead why not get caught up on all the awesome (and fairly heartbreaking) headlines you might have missed.

So cheer up and get your horror fix. READ MORE
