Happy Friday the 13th, all! We’re in October, and that means its time to get spooky with our game footage! Projectionist, hit the reel and let’s dive on in;
Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem – GC – June 20th, 2002
– One of the first games to launch onto the Gamecube for North America, the game was similar to the gameplay of the early Resident Evil franchise in how enemies were encountered. Notably for the title, it was the surreal effects that was the separation from other survival-horror entries during this generation; Players had no control over the camera, and the addition of odd effects would test the limits of what one would endure. Not a commercial success by any means. Eternal Darkness would go on as a cult game in critic’s eyes.
The Evil Within 2 – PS4, Xbox One, PC – October 13th, 2017
– A direct sequel to 2014’s IP, Sebastian once again enters into the nightmare he previously survived in order to save his daughter, previously thought dead until an old partner of his brings forth news stating otherwise. Shinji Mikami, the veteran director of the Resident Evil games, returns as a producer and supervisor with newcomer John Johanas in Mikami’s old seat. The trailer itself had me enraptured upon its debut at E3 this year, morphing Duran Duran’s “Ordinary World” into the surreal but captivating environment. Hoping for great things once I’m able to tackle the sequel.
Visage – PS4, Xbox One, PC – TBA 2017
– This particular game started as a Kickstarter back in 2015, ending it’s run with over $100k thanks to backers. For anyone that was upset about P.T. (Silent Hills) being canceled (and there are many of us), Visage looks to be a potential successor. The game’s description goes as thus;
“The game takes place in a secluded town in the 1980s. The house you are in has been there for centuries, and its foundations never seem to decay. Dozens of families have lived here. Many of them died brutally, while others lived their lives placidly in their beloved home. Is there something triggering inevitable deaths, or is it pure coincidence?”
A Horror hopeful for this year, the gameplay trailer is enough for spark memories of the haunted hallway Hideo Kojima fashioned for us.
That’s all for this week in Game Trailers. Check back in next week for more scares revisited & soon-to-come!
