There has been a whole slew of survival-horror games that have come out in the past year. The emerging genre has seen several successes such as the ubiquitous Day-Z or the feverishly-running-around-naked-on-an-island-looking-for-shelter-simulator Rust. These games have been generally PC-centric in nature, and we haven’t really seen this style of game on current consoles. Developers Undead Labs aims to fill that… Read More »

Hand of Fate not only takes the design elements of the tabletop experience, but creates that feeling of a personally tailored… Read More »

What do you dream about? This fairly innocuous question is asked among friends, partners, and even medical professionals. The dream state is still a mystery for many of us. What induces nightmares? What causes us to snap awake in a cold sweat through fear? How can we avoid these traumatic episodes? How can we enjoy… Read More »

There is a sort of comedic tragedy when watching low-budget films. Badly written dialogue becomes countless inside jokes between friends, laughing at the hilarious sets, or the plot (or lack thereof) becomes a involved, philosophical discussion about the formulas of filmmaking. The fim has a new appeal, which comes in sharing it the experience in… Read More »
