Dying Light – Grand Mirror’s Island

 

 When you combine the urban world and mission structure of Grand Theft Auto, the fluid parkour mechanics and melee combat from Mirror’s Edge and the crafting system and rotting corpses from Dead Island, you get Techland Studios’ upcoming title: Dying Light. It looks incredible, so incredible in fact, that I can’t believe it is yet another zombie title. Dying Light is set to release 30 January, 2015, meaning until then we have to rely on the word-of-mouth of those who played it at rAge, what we can deduce from trailers and what the official website says (since those never lie or exaggerate) to debate whether it will be any good or not. So what have we learned thus far? You […]

Top 5 Classic Horror Movies.

 

 On this, the first day of Halloween week, we celebrate all things visually stimulating and decaying. And by that we mean films. To be precise, classic horror films. Films so old their stars, writers, producers and everyone involved in them have long since shaken off their mortal coils. Nothing on this list was made after 1940. The Mummy: (1932) This fantastic film was produced by Universal Studio and starred the legendary Boris Karloff (The Last of the Mohicans 1920, Isle of the Snake People 1971) and is the inspiration for the 1999 Brendan Fraser movie of the same name. The plot, though similar to the 1999 remake, varies a little as the newly risen mummy, Imhotep, seeks to find reincarnated […]

Hey now Santa, where are my games?

 

 “Good day Santa, no, that won’t work. Yo happy fatty! I think he’ll hate me. Howdy saint Nick… Whatever, listen up. I’ve been a very good (looking) kid this year and thus I demand you cover the area under my tree with the gift of my choice, GAMES!” Now while I doubt a letter to Santa this early in the year will be of use, I recently realized how many games I want. I then decided to compile a list of games I really, really want (if any of you readers are feeling generous). While the list is actually much longer and would give Santa consecutive heart attacks, this is the scaled down version comprised of my deepest desires, relating […]

H.P Lovecraft

 

 “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability.” -H.P Lovecraft. Today, 124 years ago, H.P Lovecraft was born. For those who don’t know, H.P Lovecraft was one of the most influential and groundbreaking American authors. His stories ranged from deep sea gods (Cthulhu) to horror and science-fiction shorts that influence films, TV, music and games, making Lovecraft a favourite amongst anyone who likes a good story, a dark tale, and something a little different. As such I’ve decided to dedicate this article to 5 of my favourite Lovecraftian works.  “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear […]
