With the latest re-release of Capcom’s medium-defining classic Resident Evil 4 fresh on the mind, it’s bizarre and perhaps a bit sad to think on how few games have proven genuinely worthy of its design legacy. Even now, more than a decade after its original release, there is still only one game that has managed to truly take up the torch passed on by Leon’s misadventures through the macabre European countryside: Dead Space 2.

Don't wake the beast. Katie and I struggle through the final stage of Among the Sleep. Will we find the final memory or will my frayed nerves put an early end to the trip?
Sony has released a stunning new trailer for Bloodborne. Developed by From Software, the studio responsible for Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, this slick and brutally challenging action/RPG is one of Sony's most pivotal exclusives in 2015. The trailer shows a variety of absolutely disturbing imagery, making one fact painfully clear: Bloodborne will not be for the faint of heart when it releases March 24th. Read on to watch the trailer, and feel free to let us know if you're excited for the game in the comments below!
Tokyo Dark, a fascinating blend of investigative adventure and choice-driven horror that we ran an Indie Spotlight on a while back, has just arrived on Steam Greenlight. The game follows the story of Detective Ito as she unravels a supernatural mystery set against a backdrop of very real issues plaguing modern Japan, from institutionalized sexism to skyrocketing suicide rates, and is one of few games where causing violence can cause the protagonist to be driven insane. Read on to see Cherrymochi's chilling new trailer and a batch of new screens!

I attempt to knock another game off my backlog but I'm too scared to play F.E.A.R. alone. Thank goodness for good friends who won't make fun of you when you're down and out and screaming like a little child.
It's well-known that most games aren't exactly pacifistic: in some form or another many games see players fighting against or in conflict with some sort of adversarial force. As such, the quality of that adversary can sometimes make or break the game.
Capcom's Resident Evil 4, originally released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2005, is commonly considered one of the finest experiences the medium has yet produced, cropping up constantly near the top of "best game of all time" lists the world over.
