The folks at Capcom sure have gone out of their way to make us say “Okay, that’s weird!” throughout the production of Resident Evil 7. From the dramatic tonal shift present in its playable teaser demo (similar to the Silent Hills P.T. experience), to the USB stick resembling the demo’s mysterious severed finger that comes packaged with the game’s limited edition collector’s edition release, Capcom wants to keep us in the dark and scratching our heads until the game’s January 24th release date.

Netflix Infinite Runner Features Stranger Things Characters

Netflix has just released a browser based game featuring characters from their orginal series including Stranger Things.

As Mike Wheeler, you can jump past security guards, soldiers and scientists while running through the woods around the secret military base. After a short while, the antagonist of the series, The Demogorgon appears and the chase is on. Mike does get a little help in the form of Eleven, a girl with some serious psychokinetic skills.

The game resembles the 8/16-bit video games of the past and is made with simplicity in mind. The spacebar is the only key you will need to press in this game. Hitting it once makes you jump, while hitting it twice makes you do a higher, double jump. read more

Friday the 13th The Game Reveals Counselor Gameplay

Yesterday, Friday the 13th The Game was featured on IGN First, a section of the popular IGN website which showcases games set to debut at a later time. Viewers were treated to eighteen minutes of counselor gameplay with the goal being not to be killed by 80’s slasher icon, Jason Voorhees.

A handful of players roamed the woods in search of escape routes as Jason is seen looming. The slasher icon appears a few times during the demo, and fans can also hear that signature Harry Manfredini sound of ‘ki , ki,  ki, ma, ma, ma‘.  From the looks of it, the game plays much like the movie, and a traditional survival horror game. read more

Fans of the classic Sega titles “Altered Beast” and “Streets of Rage” will be thrilled to learn that Stories International has entered into a collaboration with Circle of Confusion to produce both big and little screen versions of the popular video games.  Stories Intl. is the production company of Sega Group.  Circle of Confusion produces such film and television titles as “Fear the Walking Dead”, “Outcast” and “Mr. Right.”

New Resident Evil 7 Trailer Emerges

This past weekend at Sony’s Playstation Experience 20016, the latest trailer for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was released.  Revealing only a few new plot twists, such as the name of the main character “Ethan,” the tease was enough for gamers who are anxiously awaiting the next installment in one of the most successful video game franchises ever.

Since 1996, Capcom’s survival horror game has been a staple even in all gamers collections, and became the zombie game that defined the genre. From the looks of it, this game is as creepy and intense as it ever was and may be even gorier this time around.  The sneak peek that emerged this weekend is just the latest glimpse into the next chapter into what looks to be one of the darkest Resident Evil chapters yet. With Resident Evil 6 garnering Capcom $6.5 million in sales, I don’t expect the franchise to slow down anytime soon. read more
