How to Survive (2013, Eko Software) PC Review

How to Survive (2013, Eko Software) PC Review

Released in 2013, How to Survive is a survival horror, action role-playing video game that has not aged well in a market flooded with zombie-themed action-fare. I’m surprised this even has a sequel!

“Thanks to my survival guide, you will get through this.”

Agony Unrated (2018, Madmind Studio) PC Review

Agony Unrated (2018, Madmind Studio) PC Review

I slowly lugged through the game, having no motivation to even finish it. It’s not innovative in its gameplay. The only reason to play it is for the visuals, but even that gets stale after a short time. I think it was perfect Madmind Studio called it Agony because getting to the end is nothing but agonizing.

“I promise that your destiny will soon be fulfilled.”

Castlevania (2018, USA) Season 2 Review

Castlevania (2018, USA) Season 2 Review

Netflix have done a brilliant job at exploring the Castlevania story with this season, which is twice the length of the first and has a lot more Dracula. For anyone who didn’t see the first season there’s only two things you need to know: First- Dracula has declared war on the human race after the Church killed his wife. Second- Trevor Belmont (the last descendant of the famous monster fighting family) and Sypha Belnades (a witch) have joined forces with Alucard (Dracula’s son) to defeat the vampire lord himself.

“In killing my wife, humanity has proven to me that they don’t deserve the Earth… We will scour them off the land!”

An Interview with Director Uwe Boll, Postal, BloodRayne

An Interview with Director Uwe Boll, House of the Dead, Rampage, Postal

Director Uwe Boll shouldn’t need much of an introduction to film fans. Quite the controversial figure, it seems if he’s not making films that divide opinion, he’s pissing off the people that are.

“Independent movies are dead. What we have left are TV shows, $200mil studio movies and some Oscar contenders. The rest will be $100k movies shot by amateurs and wannabe filmmakers.”

Unforgettable Retro Zombie Video Games

Zombie Nation (1990)

Whereas retro zombie video games were the “Next Big Thing” in their days, this is not the case anymore since more stylistic and graphically-rich games have emerged. As a result, gaming enthusiasts across the globe have been forced to forget blasting through corpses in favor of the most current, action-intense games like like those from the Forza Horizon, Mafia and Gears of War series.
