Reviewing The Council: Part One

In a nutshell, The Council is a murder mystery that’s L.A. Noire meets Eyes Wide Shut, set in the 1700s. The span of the game takes place over five episodes, all of which I’ll review as they’re released and as I play them. I can’t quite place it, but I’ve always been drawn to horror

Like Resident Evil 7 Itself, The DLC is Phenomenal

While I ended up not finding the time to write about it at the time of release (something I need to work on), Resident Evil 7 was a very remarkable game that I wanted to write about. In fact, and although Resident Evil 4 was my long-time favorite as is the case for most other

Friday the 13th: Virtual Cabin — Jason Lives!

Some quick snaps of me playing the new “Virtual Cabin 2.0” from Friday the 13th: The Game. Still pinching myself, it’s so delightful to see this game become reality. I can’t wait to see what we get next for future DLC, especially concerning story-based content.

Black Mirror (the game) — Hey, I Recognize that Rune ᚦ

It’s Finally Time to Talk About Friday the 13th: The Game!

Since I first posted an update with the amazing news that the game had been funded nearly 2 years ago, I’ve been completely radio silent on the subject, including the 3 months now that the game has actually been released! This is particularly strange considering the following: Horror is my favorite movie and game genre

From the Creators of Layers of Fear: >observer_

I previously wrote about how blown away by Layers of Fear I was, so I was definitely on board with whatever Bloober Team developed next. And that next project came in the form of >observer_, a cyberpunk horror mystery, which I enjoyed thoroughly. >observer_ is drenched in atmosphere. Specifically, the game is most heavily influenced

I Like Me Some Walking Simulators: Perception

“Walking Simulator” is not a term that I consider to be derogatory. In fact, it’s one of my favorite styles of gameplay in video games. A walking simulator game is generally a game that doesn’t have a lot of interactivity like: driving, combat, or anything else that involves button-mashing. It’s a game where, for the
