Horror

Dead Island: Ryder White Review

It's the Opposite

HIGH Clearing out the prison showers with impunity.

LOW Weapons unequipping in the middle of zombie gangbangs.

WTF Repeating ambush points until weapons degrade into useless scrap.

PSP Minis, Kingdoms of Amalur and Dead Island's Ryder White

I haven't been up on my download titles and the way I should lately, so I've been trying to rectify that over last week or two. I decided to comb through the PSP Minis store alphabetically and see what caught my eye. There's a whole lot of junk in there, quite frankly, but there are some nice titles if you look hard enough.

Amy Review

If You Seek Amy

HIGH A great premise.

LOW Feels like it was designed ten years ago.

WTF Marcello is the creepiest good guy, ever.

Gears 3, Amy and Cabela's Survival

After Amy, I took @KayinAmoh's advice and spent some time with Cabela's Survival: Shadows of Katmai on 360. You may not believe it, but the game is completely awesome.

Corpse Party Review

Students in Hell. Horror Game Fans in Heaven.

HIGH The final chapter.

LOW No ability to skip scenes.

WTF Butter up my pooper.

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Second Opinion

In Hindsight, I Should Have Named the Dog Toto

Amnesia: The Dark Descent Screenshot

HIGH Those first three hours of gameplay were the most terrified I have been of a game in my life.

LOW Non-stop fetch quests

WTF Why is Daniel mute? He's monologuing in flashbacks the entire time!

Video: Best five minutes of Amnesia ever

Video: Best five minutes of Amnesia: The Dark Descent ever

As part of Kristin's Extra-Life 24-hour gaming marathon she had agreed to play Amnesia: The Dark Descent and stream it live over the Internet. A commendable endeavor on many levels. Marathoning a game like that would be no small task for anyone. Alas, our Kristin couldn't do it. But all is not lost. She was recording the whole time and has left the video up on YouTube for the whole Internet to enjoy.

Dead Island Second Opinion

Sun, Surf and Septicemia

HIGH Randomly finding scattered survivors in need of aid.

LOW All the pre-patch bugs and glitches.

WTF Using cash to repair and upgrade weapons makes no sense whatsoever.

I'm now convinced that Larry the Comic Book Enthusiast should totally have been a selectable character in Dead Island. His stamina, hygiene, usefulness and likeability won't ever be very high, but he would surely make up for it with funny quips and witty commentary and girlish screams. Something Techland should consider for the next DLC.
