Stop the Cheap Jump Scares, Give Me More Atmosphere – The Elements of A Good Horror Game

Horror games and movies are great at satisfying our twisted curiosity of gore and a quick adrenaline fix from jump scares. As someone who doesn’t care for gore romps like Saw, or Peter Jackson’s Dead Alive, or the cheap jump scares of Paranormal Activity and The Conjuring, I usually stay away from horror movies.

Infographic – How Piracy Could Destroy the Gaming Industry

Piracy isn’t like what it was way back in the Golden Age. The technological pirates of today aren’t hung by the neck until dead, nor will their acts be romanticized in the centuries to come. At least I hope not.

Dragon Age Inquisition: My Story – Part 4

So, do you remember how in episode 3 of my Dragon Age Inquisition series, I said that we killed Livius Erimond? well, as luck would have it, I was wrong! He never actually died. In fact, he’s back in action with some nasty blood magic, and he plans to continue binding demons to Gray Wardens to help Corypheus’ cause. Great; this will be fun. What happens next? Read on!

Looking at The Last Of Us through the eyes of a war photographer

Zombie apocalypse games often carry an element of society torn asunder, and the environment reflects that.  Sometimes you’ll see a plume of smoke billowing from a recently burnt-out building or streets overgrown with vegetation.  Everywhere people are dead or dying and human suffering is the currency of everyday life, but these are all real elements used to create a fictional world.  So what...[Read More]
