Review: Corpse Party — Old School Horror

Review: Corpse Party — Old School Horror

on May 1, 2016 2:53 PM

Over the past few nights, I've been losing a fair amount of sleep thanks to a game. And while I would love to say it's due to the hyper-realistic frights the likes of Outlast II, in reality I can only blame a twenty year-old, black and red, cackling pixelated spirit that trapped me in the room in Chapter 1 of Corpse Party. While I'm not the bravest of gamers, the recently-released PC remaster (of Corpse Party: BloodCovered, the 2008 remake) had me playing with the lights on -- despite the dated visuals....

Hands-On Preview: We Happy Few – Brave New Psychedelic World

Hands-On Preview: We Happy Few – Brave New Psychedelic World

by

on May 1, 2016 12:00 PM

After emerging from an underground shelter with a bed and supplies, Compulsion Games' We Happy Few thrusts players into a world that's both disarmingly colorful and vibrant, and at the same time unnerving, making players tense in their struggle to survive the psychedelic streets of Wellington Wells.

We first had an opportunity to check out the game at last year's PAX East and enjoyed its drugged-out trip so much, we went back to check out the game once more and see what a year's difference has done. Luckily, one year later, Wellington Wells is still just as creepy as it is charming, but with plenty of new additions and changes that will certainly make We Happy Few a title to look out for later this year....

Review: Skullgirls 2nd Encore – The Perfect Rendition of an Instant Classic

by

on May 1, 2016 10:00 AM

I’ve been smitten with Skullgirls since I first saw the game in motion five years ago at PAX East. The fantastic character designs and animation, unique soundtrack and solidly familiar but fresh fighting combined to make it an instant classic.

When the game launched it offered a wonderfully unique experience both in the characters and gameplay. However, there was no polish; there were no frills. The game was fundamentally an excellent fighter, but it lacked many of the amenities that fans of modern fighting games had come to expect by that time. There were very few game modes, the story mode was barebones, the art gallery kept a “coming soon” placeholder, and there was little insight into the game world. On top of that was the paltry eight character roster of ...
