Unveiling some of the horror games I'm reviewing in October
August 04, 2019

Yeah, Halloween isn't for about two months, but I'm excited to reveal what I've been working on. Of course, you won't be getting 31 reviews like in the old days. Who has time for that anymore? I'm not guaranteeing these reviews will be out, but I at very least have rough drafts ready for them (final drafts for others).

What will you be getting, then?

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (GBA)
The long-awaited follow-up to Symphony of the Night that doesn't quite measure up.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (3DS)
The last good Metroid-style CV game, with new systems and mechanics that we'll sadly never see again.

Cold Fear (Xbox)
A survival-horror game where you fight parasite-infected creatures, similar to the movie "The Intruder Within." It's also a pretty blah title.

Euclidean (PC)
A cosmic horror game where you literally dive into numerous spectral worlds and dodge horrific, otherwordly monsters.

Shadowgate (NES)
Kemco's classic dark fantasy adventure that hasn't aged well...

Slender: The Eight Pages (PC)
Freeware horror that spooked a bunch of us several years ago. Pretty much forgotten these days...

The Darkness (PS3)
A first-person shooter based on the comic of the same name. Also not a very good game.

The Lost Souls (PC)
A prequel to White Mirror that fares better in some ways, worse in others.

Abasralsa (PC)
A short FPS where you perform meaningless tasks before being unceremoniously sent back to the title screen.

Alone? (PC)
Your standard haunted house game that's still better than most of the junk found on Steam.

A mashup of Slender and Doom that's not nearly as good as either.

Antihorror (PC)
What most WTF-y horror game I've played.

I look forward to the two Castlevania reviews. I remember thinking CotM was just okay. I liked HoD more, despite it's ugly colours and terrible music. Clearly, Aria was the best of the GBA entries, but I never had a DS and didn't get to play much of that system's CV trilogy, which I hear is pretty solid.
