Resident Evil: Village – First Look

Well the Resident Evil Showcase has been and gone, and all I can say is “WoW”. I think most of us that tuned in were there for one reason, Resident Evil: Village. Capcom revealed key insights regarding the eagerly anticipated survival horror sequel, chief among them, that, yes, it is a continuation of Ethan’s story. But while it is picking up from where we left off in RESIDENT EVIL: 7, RESIDENT EV...[Read More]

Maid of Sker

I want to say it was around 24 hours after I’d bravely rolled the credits on Resident Evil Village when our editor Gerard passed me the review code for Maid of Sker, another survival horror that would continue my trajectory to passably capable, maybe even courageous, horror status. Did he do this on purpose? Having just come off another horror jaunt, there was a lot of familiarity to be found in t...[Read More]

Days Gone

I want to start by pointing out that my interest in this was heavily punctured by the critics after the initial release, so it went under the radar for throughout most of 2019. Last year has been a poor year, but worse than that has been the over-exaggerated critique of a lot of games and movies, something that has seen me just turn my back on what critics say and put more trust in what other play...[Read More]

The graphics at the beginning of the game struck me as clear and clean, although with a few rough edges, like when I ventured into a deserted building there were certain items laying around that seemed...[Read More]

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Like many of the Indie or cancelled horror games of recent years (see Outlast, Amnesia, Silent Hills, SOMA, Penumbra, Layers of Fear, Alison Road etc etc), RE7 has switched to a first person perspective, a move that originally slightly worried me. It seemed like an attempt to take advantage of the cancellation of Silent Hills and given their track record of trying to force Resident Evil in to a st...[Read More]

Resident Evil: Zero HD Remaster

I still have vague memories of playing the original Resident Evil 1, mostly the memories are just me shitting myself like never before and loving it, kick starting what would blossom in to a love of horror. But Resident Evil Zero, I can still remember playing like it was yesterday, back when it was originally released for the GameCube in 2002. Oh how disgusted I was when I realized that was almost...[Read More]
