Of all the games I have played, I have never played any sort of survival horror until I tried out Resident Evil 4.  That first hour or so was one of the most suspenseful and tense moments of my gaming life.  I remember playing it at my friend’s house one weekend.  He told me to… Read More »

Comments Off on Fright Night Gaming: F.E.A.R.

When I first got my Xbox 360, I paid so much for the system and sold every piece of my Playstation paraphernalia that I had no money for an actual game. My gaming consisted of Hexic HD (probably one of the most addicting games in the world next to Angry Birds) and whatever I could… Read More »

Comments Off on Nerd Rage: Save and Quit

One of my first introductions to gaming as a child was with Super Mario Bros. for the NES. I would spend countless hours traveling the land, memorizing where the  pipes and secret blocks were, fighting off goombas, and trying to finish the game in one sitting.

One of the darkest, and spookiest games I’ve had the pleasure of turning out the lights for is definitely Condemned: Criminal Origins. You play as SCU agent Ethan Thomas.
