It’s finally October!! We’re in the home stretch for not only amazing games coming soon but new consoles and Halloween. Our next game in the 13 Games of Halloween line-up is a throw back to when Capcom was about side-scrollers and platformers - back when games were hard as hell. Ghosts ‘n Goblins, Metroid and Castlevania were known for being tough back in the day, and Capcom loved making games that made you have to be a Jedi to persevere; and Demon’s Crest was along that same line. While technically not a horror game, it did have demons, ghosts, zombies and other nasty monsters trying to stop you at every turn. If you’re a fan of exploration and then you’ll love Demon’s Crest - as the real goal of the game wasn’t so much kicking monster ass but evolving Firebrand with new abilities and items. Check out some gameplay of Demon’s Crest after the break.
I’m seeing a trend with the games so far we’ve covered for the 13 Games of Halloween - they’re all hella cheap - which is a good thing. The next game in our list also has a little Clive Barker vibe; Clive Barker’s Jericho. Jericho was one of those titles that came out early this generation and quickly went to the wayside. It can be found for around $5.00 in almost any gaming store and if you’re looking for an action heavy FPS with tons of gore and supernatural twist - then you may just love Jericho. Check out 14 mins of gameplay for a small peek at the squad based horror title developed by Mercury Steam (of Castlevania: Lords of Shadow fame). Just don’t go in expecting a AAA game. This is B movie horror and action but cheesy fun.
Happy first day of fall everyone! Sure, it’s not October yet but damn if I’m gonna wait till then to start the Halloween horror themed parade of gaming. I’m doing a video series titled : 13 Games of Halloween. So, what the hell is that? Well, pretty simple. I’m gonna show you guys 13 games that are jam packed full of Halloween like goodness. Not all are scary but all have a very Halloween like vibe to them. The first game is Clive Barker’s Undying (which available for $6). It’s a little FPS from back in 2001 which got some great reviews but sold incredibly poor. Check out 15 mins of gameplay after the break. And yes, I’m still trying to get the gist of this making videos thing (especially audio levels and rambling and … yeah a lot).
