Dread-ful Games: another tedious list of ‘scariest’ titles

Hallowe’en is again upon us. ‘Eee, it comes round quicker every year’ as my dear grandmother tells me. I then attempt to inform her that time is actually a constant quantity, and find myself soundly thrashed with her cane. Which is not wholly unpleasant. The streets swarm with deformed horrors and ghastly creatures, which is really no different from a usual Saturday night in Devon. Adorable young scamps hammer insistently upon the door and demand chocolate, like hypoglycaemic sugar addicts, and then proceed to urinate through your letter box if you happen to have run out. Religious fundamental groups whine about Satanism. The whole charade is a cynical commercial sham, and frankly, you are far better off closing the curtains, playing some terrifying games, and eating the chocolate you had put aside for the trick-or-treat kiddies.

Red Dead Redemption’s Undead Nightmare Review

So it’s fair to say that we have been overrun with Zombie games in the last two years. Between Left 4 Dead 2, Dead Rising 2 and World At War Nazi Zombies and some others that I won’t take the time to mention, there has been plenty to choose from.

I guess the question is, why should we put our billy bucks down on Undead Nightmare?

The Veteran Gamers Episode 41 – Duke Has A Rant…Again

Welcome to show 41.

Duke finally gets Halo Reach, but does he like it? Chinny plays CSI and The Daddy delves knee deep into Enslaved, we give the demo for Star Wars The Force Unleashed 2 a whirl and Mirror’s Edge on the iPhone isn’t half bad.

Quanrian gives us HakoSekai and Mama and Son Clean House to play in
