Denis Murphy writes- This Halloween not all of us will be going out partying. Instead many of us will be locking ourselves into our little gaming caves, and scarring the shit out of ourselves with the best horror games. But while there are many, many great games out there that are worthy of your time, I come to you with a selection of 6 games that I think cover just about every type of horror you could want.

I have a confession: Until recently I had never so much as even tried Minecraft. Now before the mob calls for my head and gathers their pitchforks allow me to explain. I wasn't actively avoiding Minecraft and I certainly haven't been living under a rock for the past few years. It's just one of those games I never got around to. Time and money dictate all, and unless you grew up in circumstances similar to that of a young Bruce Wayne, I'm sure there are a good number of games out there that yo...

"Electronic Arts launched the bestselling ‘Need for Speed Rivals’ as a launch title on current-gen consoles the Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4. The open-world arcade racer took the series back to its roots with adrenaline-tinged racing and some of the hottest supercars to have ever been produced. While ‘Need for Speed Rivals’ is today among the best arcade racers of recent times, there are plenty others worth checking out for a new Point of Difference."

"The Kral’s has an appealing look and comfortable design. Its plush, polyurethane ear pads, fit wonderfully and feel really nice. Thankfully the headband features the same soft material underneath it, to keep from cutting into the top of your head. For those with bigger/wider heads than mine, it can be adjusted to accommodate for your size."

Earlier I introduced thoughts on The Talos Principle, a philosophical first person puzzle solving title from Croteam using the latest version of the Serious Sam engine. As noted I do have a video walkthrough that showcases the game in the Rome setting, it clocks in at 96 minutes so grab some popcorn, a drink or what else you might desire and see what the game is all about.



Note: The HD version of the video is still rendering through YouTube right now, the recording will eventually offe...

Although it is one of the most fun game modes in League of Legends, Dominion is dead. There are several reasons for this which Riot Games could easily remedy to bring it back though.

While the whole remake and remastered craze has gotten a little out of hand in recent years, there are a few worthy titles out there that still have yet to get the treatment. Some of these games spawned series that are still going strong to this day, while others haven't been heard from in quite some time, but all of these titles deserve the chance to be experienced by a new generation.

Fallout 1 and Fallout 2

The great thing about classic RPGs is that they age pretty gracefully. The F...

Croteam is back with a new IP, The Talos Principle, when confronting new technologies and ideas for the latest Serious Sam they stumbled upon a unique new item to integrate, it allowed the gateway for puzzle challenges and new interaction with the environment. While the item had potential within the universe, there was a moment to explore it further, to challenge it more, soon a new project was on the way to do something that broke off from what they expected and it's what I'm previewing toda...

Only a few more days until Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is released on November 3rd. for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. But in the mean time check out these new screenshots.

"Seeing a rogue-lite FPS launch on Steam that combines emergent exploration and adventure with first-person magic and medieval-fantasy combat is a pretty exciting thing. It feels like we’re finally getting back to evolving on the concepts that were established with games like Heretic and Hexen from yesteryear’s past."

"The Graphics were definitely a step up from the original, and from what I saw the original definitely didn’t have the graphics this one does now. I saw only a few comparison pics of the original and this one as I unlocked the bonus content while going through the story, and I have to say , I was very impressed with how different and more crisp the anniversary edition looks compared to the original game."

"Following the multi-platform delay of Project CARS to March 20th, 2015, Slightly Mad Studios has released a new trailer to help assuage all the crushed hearts and broken dreams of racing game aficionados who have to settle for Driveclub and Forza Horizon 2 for their holiday-season racing fix."

Game Informer is currently teamed up with Extra Life to raise money for the noble cause of childrens healthcare. They have recently embarked on a 24 hour long marathon; which is available to stream on twitch, and you can help out and even earn prizes by kicking a little money to some people who truly need it. As an added bonus the GI crew has promised to do a live reading of the unproduced George Romero Resident Evil script if they manage to hit their goal of $25,000.

GG3 writes: "Wacky shooter Hazard Ops, also known as Zombies Monsters Robots, has launched another update, called Full Metal Moon. Its latest batch of theme-vomiting content comes with another trailer that displays its campy style."

Codemasters shot over a code to check out the latest in F1 2014, while the review and future videos are still coming along, I wanted to give a tease of Eyefinity playback with it. I did crunch it into a 1920x1080 container this time around but I'll work on having raw footage out there soon.

In the meantime, enjoy the racing.

Jermain of RGN writes: "The Legend of Korra is a beat em title from PlatinumGames. Based on the popular and critically acclaimed Nickelodeon television series of the same name, the newest game takes place during Seasons 2 and 3. Was the developer able do the series and character justice, or does The Legend of Korra fall to the same trappings as many other license titles before it? Sadly its the latter."

"Oh man, this would make for an awesome low-budget horror flick. Animatronic, killer robots taking down any and everyone at a creepy pizza parlor that’s supposed to be for kids? That has sleeper-hit written all over it. For now, Five Nights At Freddy’s 2 will simply be the follow-up sequel to the original smash hit that took Steam by storm."

Sam Terry writes- I’ve never been this excited yet worried for a game in my entire life. After the absolute pile of shit that was Aliens: Colonial Marines, my expectations for Alien: Isolation were never going to be huge. But surely it couldn’t be any worse, could it? No. This is simply one of THE best games I’ve ever played.

Kyle Heller writes: "If you are into puzzle and trivia games then continue reading because may’s mysteries secret of dragonville might just be for you. I honestly didn’t expect much from this game since it was more for kids. But quiet honestly i had a lot of fun."

"Keen Software House must be rolling in the dough right now. One of the greatest games that’s never been formally advertised with a marketing budget and a team of poorly paid shills shoving trailers down your throat and pre-order DLC bonuses up every other forum post and social aggregator, has officially hit the milestone mark of selling one-million copies."
