Sometimes we crave spooky thrills and what’s a better way to get it than play the scariest games out there? To that end, here’s our list of the top scariest games that have given us genuine frights and jump scares, especially in the dark. Alien Isolation Perhaps the most appropriate game to play in the dark, Alien Isolation does what no other Alien game based off the movies can – scare the hell out of you. As Ripley’s daughter Amanda, players are tasked with searching the Nostromo 15 years after its disappearance, so as you can expect, there’s plenty of Xenomorphs on the ship. With no weapons to start with and when hiding is your best option, Alien Isolation does fantastically well and feeds on your fears. Every turn is fraught with danger which makes the game one of the best horror titles out on the market today. Dead Space Have you ever wondered what it would be like if the Xenomorphs from Aliens had a sicker, twisted and scarier looking twin? Wonder no … [Read more...] about Top 5: Scariest Games To Play In The Dark

You'd risk people raiding it if they find it , but maybe we could also set up traps and and guards for it. Sort of like build your own dungeon.... Then we could do treasure hunts using such bases... and other fun activities. … [Read more...] about Can we build in the wild something like a hidden base?
Sandbox/Mission Hybrid Roughly a month ago a friend of mine hooked me up with a copy of How to Survive 2, because she knew I was a fan of the whole zombie apocalypse genre and it was a game she was enjoying. I had all of these plans to write up a proper impressions piece, but got sidetracked by all things The Division. This game was a whole lot of the reason why I survived the lead up to the launch of that title, because it gave me something fresh to piddle around with. The basics of the game are that you are a survivor in a world long after everything went to shit thanks to the zombie outbreak. Since I did not play the first title, I feel like there is probably some background story there that I am missing. What I do know however is that this title is set in the coastal region of Louisiana.

I love the idea of PvP allowing for meaningful social gameplay, but in reality, I mostly experience only ganking. But without PvP, I generally get so bored of PvE that I run into the arms of a (J)RPG so I can get drama and permadeath in a finished product, often without kids screaming at me to stop moving and just die. But here I … [Read more...] about First Impressions: Struggling to survive in Conan Exiles
