Extra Life Heads to Orlando for Children's Hospital Week
Mainstream media oft jests at the behest of gamers, depicting them as ineffectual slobs with a penchant for Doritos and Mountain Dew. Anyone that’s actually spent time connecting with the community has seen its heart and soul and fully understands that it has a giving side. In fact, that side comes out annually when Extra Life makes its plea for help in supporting the Children’s Miracle Network. And come April 2022, gamers will once again prove they’re not the angry trolls media paints them as when they assemble in Orlando, FL, for Extra Life United and Children’s Hospital Week.
Alice's Kids is the Nation's Answer to Poverty Outcasting
I grew up in a comfortable, secure household, never wanting for the bare necessities of life. I didn’t have to, because they were always there. I wore relatively new clothing, and my appearance never made me stand out amongst the sea of students from middle to upper-middle-class households. And yet still, I was often on the receiving end of criticism. Maybe my jeans were a little too tight, or a shirt I wore was a bit too busy.
Universal Studios Orlando, I'm Breaking Up with You
There is nothing more devastating than falling out of love. For years, you cherish a person. You care for them, spend every waking hour with them, can’t get them out of your head, and then suddenly, the very sight of them bores you. It’s not entirely their fault. They can only do so much with what they have, but it’s simply not enough to keep you from going separate ways.
Predator: Hunting Grounds - My First Round as the Ultimate Hunter
I sat quietly in the trees, listening to the sounds of conflict unfolding in the distance. Admittedly, I didn’t move for 30 seconds or so because I foolishly skipped the tutorial, but once I figured out how to make use of the hunter’s staple gadgets and gear, I pressed forward.
'Doom Eternal' is the Bigger, Gorier Sequel We Wanted
More ripping. More tearing. It’s all we could want from a sequel to id Software’s reboot. But Doom Eternal isn’t just your average entry in the franchise. Sure, it has all of the chaos and gore the series has been known for, but id Software knew it should give fans more. While some sequels simply add new enemy types, weapons, and locations, Doom Eternal takes the core "push-forward" concept of its predecessor and molds it into something so much bigger.
'East Coast Nightmares' Bringing Bad Dreams to PC and Consoles
You arrive at a dimly lit carnival, the joyous screams of children echoing throughout the grounds. They’re broken for a moment by the horrifying grunt of your first assailant. A clown, demented and twisted by whatever supernatural horrors await, swipes at you. Your only escape is through the ominous facade of a clown’s head, its teeth sharpened and its eyes glowing under a neon hue. Rushing through its mouth, you hope to escape the monstrosity at your heels, unaware that you’ve run right into your very own East Coast Nightmares.
Predictions for HBO’s 'The Last of Us' TV Series
Ironically amidst the spread of a virus that has the world panicking, Naughty Dog vice president Neil Druckmann revealed that a The Last of Us TV series is in production at HBO. Joining Druckmann on the creative end is Chernobyl creator and writer, Craig Mazin. It’s two names you absolutely do want attached to a TV adaptation of The Last of Us as both have had experience in pulling heartstrings and crafting horrifying imagery.
The Ghost’s Most Anticipated Games of March 2020
I may live in the great beyond, but that doesn’t mean I’m not sitting here anticipating new games to play. Haunting people is fun only for so long. Just ask Polterguy. Since I highly doubt we’ll ever see a sequel to Ghosthunter, I have to reserve my excitement for other titles.
Fun Fact: We Almost Had Two New Games in the Alien Franchise!
Maybe it’s a “not-so-fun fact,” especially after The Creative Assembly further proved that there is still life in Ridley Scott’s tired cinematic franchise with Alien: Isolation. In a Twitter exchange, former Epic alum Cliff Bleszinski and 3D Realms vice president Frederik Schreiber both revealed how the acquisition of 20th Century Fox devoured two new Alien titles.
Late in the Game Review: 'Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City'
Remember that feeling of excitement we, as Resident Evil fans, had when the Resident Evil 2 remake was announced? It wasn’t just nostalgia. We were excited to see what Capcom could do with the beloved title of yesteryear and how improvements and updates would enhance the survival horror experience.
My Predictions for The Last of Us II
In May 2020, Naughy Dog is once again immersing us into the dark, dreary, and depressing world of The Last of Us. With the focus primarily on Ellie, now grown and full of rage, the highly anticipated follow-up is sure to be just as emotionally charged as the original. It is Naughty Dog, after all, a developer known for drawing raw emotion from its fanbase.
The Decade’s Scariest Horror Games That Kept Us Screaming
Another decade is winding down, which means it’s time to take that nostalgic look back at the past ten years. We could think about all of the good, warm things that happened to us. However, we don’t want to bore ourselves to death. Instead, let’s set our focus on the things that kept us on edge. For these past ten years, the gaming industry has churned out truly horrifying titles that destroyed our nerves but left us wanting more.
