Firstly, it is a film that is not cut from the game and computer graphics but made with real cameras in real environments and real actors and special effects. This in itself tends to irritate me no end when it comes to video games, it is a kind of inferiority complex and a Hollywood fetishism that enables game publishers do not have confidence that the product they create may appeal well enough on its own, it must either be wrapped in one glossy Happy Meal-box from Hollywood in a desperate attempt to attract attention outside the core group.

It has ruled some doubt about whether EA's annual sports games will appear at this year's consoles at all, considering that the PS4 (and probably the next Xbox console) comes on the market at the end of the year. EA wants enough to maximize sales on this generation's consoles when the number of consoles in the million homes are at their greatest, and this week was both NHL 14 and FIFA 14 announced. In the first trailer for NHL 14 we will see an improved physics engine, while focusing on fighting games seem to be more important than ever before.

Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil, has started a new game studio, The Evil Within. The game is scheduled to launch both this and next-generation consoles in 2014. I find it lacking in horror in today's gaming world, so it's great to see a developer really trying to bring back the true survival-horror genre we had in the first Resident Evil and Silent Hill games (to name a few ). The first trailer does not contain any actual gameplay, but gives us a glimpse into how crazy this can get. See you at your own risk!
Vector Cell, a developer consisting of fifteen people, account for the new version of the classic. Among the fifteen we find Paul cuisse standing behind the original game, as well as four others who worked on the original team. It should therefore not be anything in the way of being able to recreate the original game. More worryingly, perhaps, Paul cuisse not have much to show for by Flashback at the beginning of the 90s.
Fade to Black on Playstation followed by flop Time Commando was nothing to brag about, and after a moderate success with the Moto Racer series, he took a break from game development to return again in 2008 with the DS game Mr. Slime.

The Last of Us is a game it is tied very high expectations and it will probably be high up there when in December to discuss the year's best games.

Cities are abandoned and taken over by nature while survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever else they can find.

Tuesday, namely the innovative online game Defiance released for both PC and console.

There are many gamers today who have never played Thief. The last game in the series came in fact way back in 2004, and after the fourth game was announced in 2009 it has been very quiet around this title. So quiet that many have wondered whether the game has been canceled. But last month they got the first screens, and this week, the first trailer. They are dishonored vibes far out in the fingertips, which is not surprising, since dishonored is clearly influenced by Thief, and several of those who originally worked on Thief now working for Arkane Studios - This sounds good!

Nintendo has released a video showing the differences in load times.
Before and after the upcoming patch is installed.
They've had plenty of positive things to say about Nintendo's new big commitment, but when it comes to speed of the menus, the Japanese manufacturer mildly had something to go on. And since January, they promised to fix the problem.
Games is in many ways the perfect medium for horror. Not only do we watch the hell is happening on the screen, we also participate in and experience the demons, ghosts and all the occult that should be behind the next corner. For this reason, the horror a new phenomenon, and the vast potential has left a lot of games that offer horrible creepy and thrilling adventures.
In Dead Space staples we acquaintance of Isaac Clarke, an engineer who investigates problems on a spaceship only to discover the one terrible surprise after another. Before he knows it, he's alone in space against grotesque mutated Necromorphs.
Necromorphsene is in no way any kind beings. Not only Mon traverse left around in an unknown ship with defective systems, but they downright ghastly killing machines is a real danger everywhere. Out of the blackest darkness flies the nasty bodies voted to end the lives of the poor engineer, and together with the constant unsettling loneliness they form an incredibly thrilling atmosphere for the player. Looking to sprinkle and sweat? Then this is the perfect game for you.
Resident Evil is by many seen as the survival horror genre's father, and had influence over many other games. A group of soldiers are venturing into a big and scary and sinister house standing in line as soon as you have moved over the threshold. An investigation suddenly turns into a deadly fight for life, with the nasty, hungry zombies brutally hunt you down.
In many ways this is Resident Evil still left as a worthy kronksempel how a survival horror game should be. The hordes of zombies pushing while it is often a lack of ammunition, and storage system makes it even more thrilling. Classic scenes, as the serpent and the first meeting with the dogs, has received well-deserved place in gaming history. Game Feeling combined with the investigation in the bottom makes it a game that is hard to put down, a combination that makes it worthy of classic piston.
Technology is anything but healthy for horror games. Many large developers have gone in the trap and priority availability rather than pure horror for high sales numbers, but fortunately there are also smaller developers focused and uncompromising interests. One of these is the Swedish Frictional Games, who have built up a good reputation in the genre of the game Penumbra: Black Plague and Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
There is no doubt the latter will walk away with the space the scariest game. In the game you wake up in a giant castle without knowing where you are, why you are there or who you are. In pursuit of answers you encounter various sinister beings, and they can combine with the dark cause mental instability and panic. It's a game that really makes you feel helpless and lost, it stands out in the crowd by not offering any kind of weapon, and everything revolves around the protagonist's ability to keep a cool head.
With his morbid surrealism can Silent Hill 2 is described as a psychological horror thriller from hell. After the protagonist James Sunderland suddenly getting signs of life from the dead his wife tricked him into the mysterious town of Silent Hill, where one grim trigger the other. He quickly discovers that things are not as they should be, and what would be a beautiful reunion turns into being the worst James may experience.
The monsters of Silent Hill 2 reflects the fact that James is most afraid of, something that has made a monster design that is both disgusting and interesting at the same time. Throughout the game you meet all the time in the most absurd forms of enemies and monsters, which combined with the game's hopeless atmosphere makes the game terribly sinister and disturbing. Take Pyramid Head for example, with its pyramid head without face turns loose on the helpless James with a giant meat knife. Anything you want to meet when you trudge home from football practice one late autumn night? Did not think so.
The reason why many people are afraid of the dark is not due. darkness itself, but ignorance of what is hidden there. This is something many horror exploits frequently, but what if the lights turn dark matter, and a camera lens is the only one who can reveal what is hidden there? The answer is Project Zero II: Crimson Butterfly, a game where you really never can be certain of what standing two feet in front of you.
Although the camera wearing around - Camera Obscura - kills ghosts encountered, the ghosts first visible - and vulnerable - when you are close enough that they manage to scare the shit out of you before you get them all. The terrifying surprises are never too many, and a further hell reveals itself when you run out of film and the dangerous ghosts flying around freely, totally invisible to you. If that does not scare your tough I am, maybe it helps that the game is loosely based on certain events in a Japanese village ..
On the screen, we can clearly see the logo of erudito Collective, the group that opposes the evil Abstergo Industries. Both of these, however, only exist in modern times in Assassin's Creed universe, and from what we know, comes the contemporary piece in the upcoming Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag to be told by a researcher employed by just Abstergo.
It is not inconceivable that the screen we see is taken from a game that takes place in parallel with Black Flag, or at least complement the story in it. As Eurogamer also mention, by the way firm Ubisoft Digital Arts the same as those made short film series Assassin's Creed: Lineage, which was based on the game universe.
