‘Layers of Fear’ Early Access Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

If I said that the PC now has its own P.T would I have your interest? I hope so. This is what Layers of Fear is, it manages the same scares and messes with your head much in the same way as the Silent Hills teaser did. It also has the same problem in that […]

‘Until Dawn’ – A Horror Fans (Re)View

by Phil Wheat

I’ve been gaming for years, for longer than I have been a horror fan in fact. From the ZX81 through the Acorn Electron, Commodore 64, NES, SNES, Megadrive and beyond, and even back in the early days there were attempts to meld video games and movies. Be it cinematic style games like It Came From […]

‘Gravity Falls 2×15: The Last Mabelcorn’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“All our dumb horns can do is glow, point toward the nearest rainbow, and play rave music.” ‘The Last Mabelcorn’ takes a long, hard look at how mistakes can shape us without destroying our essential goodness while also giving us a scene in which Mabel, Wendy, Candy, and Grenda double-cross a gnome in a crooked […]

‘Corpse of Discovery’ Review (PC)

by Paul Metcalf

When playing Corpse of Discovery I can’t help but think about No Man Sky. I’m not comparing the two, but instead if this game did anything it proved to me that exploring alien worlds is something that I really enjoy, even if there is no combat included in the game. Corpse of Discovery is a […]
