Resident Evil 1

 

 Originally on the Psx/Ps1 I am now playing it on the Ps3 however, I have played it on the original console long before the Ps3. While the story for each resident evil game varies from place to place it always comes back to this one. Your paly as Chris Redfield or Jill Valentine, you are a member of the S.T.A.R.S Alpha team locates Bravo Team’s helicopter, but there are no signs of survivors, however Alpha Team is attacked by infected dogs, killing one of the team members. Alpha Team is forced to seek refuge within a nearby mansion, thought to be abandoned. Wesker, Chris, Jill and Barry (Alpha Team) when searching the vast mansion members of bravo team are found, […]

The Evil Within

 

 Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, a veteran police detective walks into a mental hospital and gets attacked; thereafter he murders millions of non-zombies. I have no idea where I was hoping to take that and neither does The Evil Within apparently. When the original creator of the loved Resident Evil series, Shinji Mikami, sat down to pen the concept of The Evil Within (or Psycho Break if you’re from Japan) he quite evidently ran out of inspiration. The Evil Within, published by Bethesda Softworks and developed by Tango Gameworks, is an action horror game (read, “should have been”) that offers a lot to love for all the wrong reasons. The player takes control of the drip-dried drama […]

Cryptic Dawn: Aggrometh

 

 The first track assaults your senses within seconds of the sound system coming to life. The second and third tracks continue the attack; and by the time you get to track twelve your head is left in a distorted mess by the pure power of Cryptic Dawn’s electcro-aggression. Aggrometh -the long awaited LP- picks up where Old Blood left off. Once again Cryptic Dawn has delved into the world of popular culture, drugs, guns and meth. Namely the meth of American hit TV show, Breaking Bad. [youtube id=”Xce8WhOKcjQ” width=”600″ height=”350″] All the tracks on this album are well executed -the beats hard, the drums tribal and the synths hauntingly simple; and the singing, though hard and distorted, still sinks into […]

Paresis: Hope Lies Torn

 

 I am often prone to the curse of logorrhea; but today I will attempt to curtail my ramblings and furnish you with the simple facts. Fact One: Paresis is a great band. Fact Two: The first song “Not in my name” kicks you in the head causing frenzied movements and peculiar dance-floor dominating dance moves that could bring about the end of days or the zombie apocalypse. Fact Three: The rest of the album is just as powerful at pounding your speakers, assaulting your head and causing you to attack the dance-floor. Fact Four: Songs like “Anti Me” and “Your voice” are but the tip of the iceberg that this amazing band has created over the years. The guitar riffs […]

.5:The Gray Chapter Prieview

 

 .5:The Gray Chapter is the 5th Studio album by US band SlipKnoT. Released worldwide on 21 October 2014 this is their first album release in six years, and the first not to feature deceased bassist Paul Gray (whom the album title is an ode to) or  drummer Joey Jordison, who parted ways with the band in 2013. The album contains a balance of the melodic style of newer albums, but also incorporates the harder more brutal style of the Iowa era. The pain the band suffered from the loss of Paul is evident in the sombre tone of the album, as well as Corey Taylor’s emotional lyrics. The emotional track Goodbye and the frustrated Skeptic are both clear tributes to […]

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 […]

Marvel Zombies

The Marvel universe: where you are certain that a hero will swoop down to save the day when a maniacal villain attempts to seize control of your lunch/city/world etc. But…..this version of the Marvel universe isn’t the one that you’ve always known. For one thing, if you yell for someone to help you, well, that is probably the wrong move because those very heroes that you’ve come to know and love, like your favourite Avengers, X-men and even the likes of Spider-man, Captain America, the Hulk and *gasp* Wolverine!?! Yep. All were turned into flesh eating zombies by a mysterious virus that came after a bright flash in the sky was observed in that particular universe. You have to remember […]
