The PSP2 has been unveiled and it’s looking like more than a worthy contender to the Nintendo 3DS. Its 5″ OLED touch screen, rear touch panels, Six Axis, 3G/Wifi functionality and snazzy look leaves little complaints to be had. Well, it is slightly larger than the PSP 3000 so I’m sure that’s disappointing to a few people, but other than that the future is looking bright for Sony’s next handheld.
Good looks and impressive tech will only get you so far though, so the NGP’s developer and publisher support will be crucial to its success. Lucky for us, if the list below shows how strong third party support for the console is. With companies that have major stakes in the horror genre included in the list (check out the full list after the jump) my head is buzzing with all the possible horror games we could see on the platform. Here are the most exciting games we’d like to see make it to the NGP. READ MORE
Last year was pretty good to horror fans, pretty good indeed. It gave us Amnesia: The Dark Descent, a game that would’ve scared my pants off if I had been wearing pants while I played it. What? Don’t you play all your horror games without pants? After coming close to soiling myself during late night Dead Space marathons I’ve learned the virtues of playing games while my loins are in the comfy embrace of a thick adult diaper. It keeps me from having to do laundry so I can save my quarters for more important things like soda and snacks for said half naked gaming marathons.
But enough about me and my bizarre gaming habits, let’s talk about this year and what’s lurking in the shadows, waiting to satiate our endless appetites for all things twisted and horrifying. If the following thirteen games are anything to go by, this year might just be the best one yet for fans of the genre. READ MORE
Shadows Of The Damned was announced not too long ago, and it was kept a secret for a while before that. Slated by our very own very sexy Adam Dodd as the game that could redefine horror, (before knowing exactly what it was) most of you flipped your shit. With such gems like “Wow, this doesn’t look like it’s gonna redefine anything… Suda51 is overrated. ” and “One word. NO.”.
Here’s the deal. Behind the game we have executive director Suda51 (director of No More Heroes), creative producer Shinji Mikami (director of Resident Evil) and music composer Akira Yamaoka (sound director of Silent Hill). That right there is a dream team in itself. Don’t be so quick to discard this game. It’s got a lot of different horror flavors to it, from Alan Wake to Devil May Cry. It may not redefine horror, but it’s definitely going to punch horror in it’s uppity face. The game is looking at release sometime next summer on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. READ MORE
Do you consider yourself a planner? You like to look to the future and prepare for what may come? Do you fancy yourself a horror gamer? If you answered yes to either of those questions you might want to stop talking to your computer and check out this list of horror games just waiting to rock our socks in 2011.
This was undoubtedly a great year for horror games, we had a myriad games come out suiting virtually every fan’s tastes including more than a couple great ones pretty recently (that might just get you in the mood for Halloween! – Shameless plug). But if you thought 2010 was well endowed you should definitely take a look at this group of games we’ll hopefully be seeing next year, because they pretty much rock. READ MORE
Tokyo Game Show is here and so far it’s the most exciting gaming event of the year, for horror fans at least. The most exciting news, at least for me, was the unveiling of the collaborative effort between Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami, No More Heroes creator Suda51, and Silent Hill composer/producer Akira Yamaoka: the new action horror project, officially dubbed Shadows of the Damned.
But that’s certainly not it, there’s also been news on Resident Evil 6, Dead Space 2 multiplayer details, the exciting reveal of Project Dark by the guys who made the amazing Demon’s Souls, a Devil May Cry reboot, and two limb-flailing horror games for the Kinect. READ MORE
