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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
We may not have gotten Doom: Eternal this year, but Bethesda is hoping to soften that blow with news of DLC… for the Doom and Doom 2 console ports. Revealed during Bethesda’s Doom 26th anniversary livestream, the original two Doom games will be receiving DLC that will expand the user experience and serve as a bit of nostalgia for those that grew up with the series.
