Horror games have been at a standstill recently, a lot of them turning into boring drudges through co-op scenarios where committee designed monsters jump out at you. Nothing too special, but nothing too offensive either, it’s all just normal and boring. A new Silent Hill is announced, great, the scariest thing we’ll be seeing in that game is Norman Reedus’ haircut.

But what about the Chuck-E-Cheese security camera game?

Sam Raimi announced at Comic Con that not only was he producing The Last of Us movie, he was also working on an Evil Dead television show.  This news has singlehandedly renewed my interest in The Last Of Us movie, of which I thought would just be cutscenes from the game.

As for the television show, all we know for sure is that it’s starring Bruce Campbell, and that’s essentially all we really need to know. The question remains of what kind of adventures Ash will be going on in this series, but it is definitely something to look forward to.

Normally I wouldn’t talk at length about a mod, but Black Mesa has been a mod that has been in the back of my mind for a few weeks now, so I figured it was the perfect time to talk about it.

Once thought as vaporware, Black Mesa has finally seen the light of day, a remake of Half Life. Although without the Xen levels, though strangely enough I haven’t heard anyone complaining about that omission.

The Walking Dead is a game based on a t.v show where people cry and the t.v show is based off the comic book of the same name. I haven’t read the comic but I saw one season of the t.v show and there was a lot of crying, but in a twist of fate the part of the show I saw wasn’t that bad (!) Can the video game live up to the impossible standard of “pretty much okay?” Let’s find out!

What do you get when a developer recognizes mistakes they’ve made in the past, and seeks to redeem themselves by making legitimately fun games, but then decide to abandon all they’ve learned to showcase that they’re still not above making godawful decisions?

You get a fucked up looking Knuckles that’s what.

Unlike Sonic I don't chuckle, because there's nothing funny about this.

Fun! Whee!

Oh hey, what are you doing here? Don’t you know that GoG.com is having a summer sale where approximately EVERY GAME EVER MADE is on sale?  I guess if you insist you CAN stay here instead of buying the best game ever made for 2 dollars, the Legacy of Kain collection, or the best game series for sneaky stealing before the new one came along and diligently ruined it.

Well I guess I can cook up a review for you. From my butthole to your brain. I guess we could take a look at Postal. Maybe talking about this game will bore you so hard you’ll have to go buy the Rayman collection which includes the utterly sublime Rayman 2.

I’ve always gotten this band confused with Rise Against. For some reason Rage Against The Machine never fell into my confusion though, and I’m curious as to why. I think I have it nailed down actually, while Rise Against is radio ready punk disguised under a political subtext, Against Me is radio read punk disguised under a-

Oh.

Game journalists seriously need to get laid.

Because it wouldn’t be game journalism unless people got ridiculously upset over stupid bullshit; The developers of Assassins Creed Unity are being called out over “no female characters” and that kind of bullshit. Ignoring that the game takes place during the French Revolution, I think this means we can expect to see a trend where history is rewritten to be more “politically correct.”
