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.

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.
