SOMA is The Matrix if the Humans Created It

SOMA has been on my must-play list for nearly 3 years now. I’ve finally checked it off my list. And it wasn’t on my list just because it’s a horror title, but because of who made it, Frictional Games. This is the same team who created Amnesia, possibly the scariest game I have ever played. […]

The Lesser-known “Masters of Science Fiction”

We all know about Masters of Horror, the cool horror anthology idea where the creators and producers gave a group of horror writers and directors their own episode where they could pretty much do whatever they wanted with it, within budget of course and within reason on the amount of nudity and violence they could […]
