White Night Review: This Old House


I’m a real sucker for horror games. Ever since I played Shadowgate for the NES, scary and macabre games really struck a chord with me. One of the things I love most about horror games is that there is so much variety. I can paint a wall with zombie brains in one game, outrun a silent killer in the woods in another, and avoid an unstoppable space creature in a third. In the case of the recently-released downloadable title White Night, I found myself in one of my favorite horror settings: the haunted house. Nothing spooks me more than being stalked by an unseen entity. Add in a dark, decrepit mansion and an ever-dwindling supply of light, and you’ve got all the makings of a real fright fest. But where White Night shines in style, the substance makes you feel a bit like you’ve been left in the dark. (more…)

Xbox Store Today: White Night, Zombie Army Trilogy, OlliOlli

You’ll have a scary good time with today’s Xbox Games Store update as two horror titles (and one skateboarding game) are newly available for the Xbox One.

First up is White Night, a striking black and white exploration game that will force players to face their fear of the dark (it’s OK, you can admit it, we’re all scared of the dark). White Night will tap into another universal fear, creaky 1930s mansions, as it throws puzzles and survival horror scenarios at you. I really hope there’s not a creepy clown…

Also available on this fine Friday is Zombie Army Trilogy, Rebellion’s bloody spinoff of their Sniper Elite series. Hitler’s a zombie and his army of genetically modified undead hordes are overrunning Europe. And guess what, it’s up to you to stop him. Preferably by socking zombie Hitler right in his zombie jaw.

Finally, side-scrolling skateboarding sim OlliOlli kickflips onto the Xbox One this week. After debuting on the PS4 and Wii U, OlliOlli’s final stop completes the new-generation trifecta.

More information on all three of these games can be found after the break. (more…)

PS Store Today: Helldivers, RE Revelations 2: Episode 2, Zombie Army Trilogy, more

Sony kicks off their eight-week Spring Fever promotion with Helldivers, a top-down shooter set in a dystopian future where players are tasked with defending mankind from a horde of alien invaders. It sounds like a good time will be had by all. And I do mean all, Helldivers is a Cross-Buy title compatible with the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.

Also available this week is the PS3 and PS4 launch of “Contemplation,” the second episode from Resident Evil Revelations 2. Capcom has plans to complete this chapter of the Resident Evil saga in a timely manner as the remaining two episodes should launch next week and the week after, respectively. If Resident Evil doesn’t have enough zombie Nazis for your taste, then prepare to square off against undead Hitler in Rebellion’s Zombie Army Trilogy, which will also be released for the PS4 this week. Even more horror can be found in the noirish White Night, which is a survival horror game that’s rendered completely in black and white.

Something slightly less horrifying will be available for PS4 and Vita owners as OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood will take the side-scrolling skater off the streets and onto the set of a blockbuster film. Can you skate on top of the Olliwood sign? Yes, yes you can. Finally this week, La-Mulana EX will make Vita owners very happy as the cave exploration title will appear on Sony’s handheld in its most complete edition yet.

More details about these games (and a few more new releases) can be found after the break. A full rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)
