COWER, BRIEF MORTALS

Hi, I'm Sho, professional gaming expert and occasionally unscrupulous ninja. You may remember me for writing Ai Choaniki, Final Fantasy X-2, or similar reviews from about a hundred years ago. Or then again, you might not. A century is a long time.

In honor of the season I've decided to rise from my grave and inflict seven days of gaming horror upon the good readers of Honest Gamers. Beginning Sunday, October 25th I will post a new review at the stroke of midnight (Venter Standard Time) each and every night through Halloween. Each review will have been freshly written that very day, so even I'm not sure what they're going to be yet.

The abyssal awesomeness of Demon's Crest?

The necromantic romantics of Bible Black?

The skimpy clothes and even skimpier gameplay of Oneechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad?

We'll just have to wait and see; such is my solemn, manly vow. Well, assuming anyone is interested, anyway. Otherwise I'll probably just watch Night of the Creeps when it comes out instead, you dream crushing bastards.

=O You can't do a Holloween horror rumble without classic, if predictable, titles / series such as:

Silent Hill
Resident Evil
Left 4 Dead

and... that's it. I'm not creative!

Well, of course you will need at least one classic horror title in there. I recommend Silent Hill 1, as it has just been rereleased on the PSN recently and would make a relevant title as well an interesting study in how games are affected by time.

I second the Bible Black suggestion (made by yourself)! I've, er, watched the anime a number of times... or at least the one disc I own. The anime is surprisingly good, if totally indecent. But then, that's what I wanted...

Other games, other games... well, some abysmally bad game is probably in order. I'm already covering Obscure II, though... okay, well it's not ABYSMALLY bad... actually, it's shockingly satisfying, but I think it's only because I enjoy watching the hateful characters get their faces eaten all the time.

Shadow Hearts would be a good one to consider.

HG needs a Demon's Crest review. Go for it!

Demon's Crest would be a good pick. That's a game I keep meaning to review, but just never have gotten around to playing again. I'm sure I can think of others if I try, so we'll see what happens.

Zipp: Is Obscure II the Obscure game I reviewed? I think so. I know I reviewed one as an assignment.

Just checked, OD, and yes it is the same game, though mine is the PSP version, where it is almost impossible to find a co-op buddy to play it with you, making combat ridiculously hard (and yet strangely mandatory).

You used the word inconsistent in your review and it was a solid word. There are times where I really enjoy the game for its cheesy teen-horror-flick style. Then it tries to be a game and I just get frustrated.

A new review by Sho is a review worth reading.


I don't have to boost my review resume because I have a real resume.

Tonight's piece is dedicated to Zigfried, whose GameFAQs review stood as a shining beacon of truth until it was cast down by the order-worshipping agents of YHWH.
