The Horror Geek presents: Is a Walking Dead videogame in the works?

Walking Dead Screenshot

With the first six episodes of The Walking Dead already done, work is under way to prepare for the second season arc—scheduled to air later this year. In the meantime, it seems like everyone involved is trying to figure out how to capitalize on the show's success—and what could possibly be better than a Walking Dead videogame?

HIGH Frank West. What else needs to be said?

LOW A few of the Achievements are too tedious to bother with.

WTF It's a locked facility and I've killed thousands... When does the place empty out?

The Horror Geek presents: Official launch trailer for Dead Space 2

Dead Space 2, the long-awaited sequel to Electronic Arts' hit survival horror title, is due to hit retailers in just two weeks. To make sure that the hype reaches a fever pitch, the company has released the official launch trailer for the title. Looks good.

Amnesia woes, Case West fumbles and Preacher rocks

The action and structure of The Adventures of Captain Becky is actually a little above-par as far as some of these indie games go, though that's not to say it's fabulous. No, I think the real draw here is that Becky is rendered in quasi-Anime "hot girl" fashion, and each level awards her a new outfit provided that the player makes sufficient progress. Taking this fanboy appeal one step further, the game offers a shockingly-detailed character editor where the player can modify Becky's appearance. I can't say that the graphics are good enough to sell the package, but the level of sophistication that was attempted in this mode alone far surpasses most of what I've seen on XBLI.

HIGH Getting to run around with Frank West killing zombies and guards.

LOW The fact that the only way I can play as Frank is by joining in someone else's multiplayer game.

WTF Why does Frank suddenly look like the love child of Dan Aykroyd and Mickey Rourke?

It's the beginning of the new year, which means it's time to look at the high points offered by last year's games. So, without any further ado, let's get listing!

Deadly Premonition.

That's it. Play it ten times.

HIGH Watching zombies fly to pieces as giant buzzsaws cut through them.

LOW Being unable to find a zombie to use said buzzsaw on.

WTF The single-player events are two hours long. Without save points.

How Games Should—And Shouldn't—Be Designed (Deadly Premonition is the Game of the Year, Part 11)

I have been accused of being a chauvinist for the cause of Deadly Premonition—that my love for the game eclipses any ability to think critically about its flaws. I don't believe this is the case, and I'm happy to admit it that the game is loaded with flaws.

Interview with Frictional Games' Jens Nilsson, developer of Amnesia: The Dark Descent

Amnesia: The Dark Descent is highly likely to be my 2010 game of the year, and is the proud recipient of only the second perfect 10 that I have given out. Jens Nilsson, one of the developers at Frictional Games, was kind enough to answer a few of my questions about Amnesia and the future of Frictional.
