Creep is sometimes best served in short bites, and the Internet has never failed to deliver some amazing short scares. Here’s 10 that you might find at least a little bit unsettling, especially when read alone at 2 am… Continue Reading →
Part of the ritual of growing up is watching horror movies together as a group of teenagers. The shared experience mitigates the fright somewhat, and makes it more tolerable. Some of those films you can even watch when you’re alone. And then there are some films that you really shouldn’t watch when you’re alone. Especially if you’re of a nervous bent. In which case, why are you watching scary movies alone, again? Get the popcorn, and I’ll run down some creepy films you have to rope others into watching with you (in no particular order–randomness can be just as creepy as the expected scares). Obviously, fright is a subjective term; some might find this list a little tame, others a “keep away” notice. If you’ve seen these, or have other recommendations, let us know in the comments below! The list after the jump-scare. Continue Reading →
Teslagrad is one of the latest in a wave of beautifully illustrated, beautifully programmed indie 2D games that we lucky gamers have a chance to experience. The game has seen some success on the PC, and now we have the Wii U version. I take the power into my own hands to see how electrifying the game can be.
[Update: Word from the developers (see comment below) is that Wii U Pro Controller support is coming in a patch, so that’s something to look out for!] Continue Reading →
So, it being October, the month of Halloween and haunting and horror and other things that begin with “h”, we think it’d be good to get you into the mood by posting some creepy videos and stories from around the web. And by “web”, we probably mean “YouTube”. Nothing better than a nice, creepy video, right?
So without ado (or context), here’s your first vid, and we’re keeping it low for the initial scares. A creepy ghost girl.
Possibly probably faked, but still effectively mildly creepy.
Of all the highly anticipated titles this year, Super Smash Bros. has got to be somewhere near the top of the list. For the uninitiated, it’s a sprawling beat-em-up featuring a host of Nintendo’s greatest and toughest characters (and a few borrowed from …here and there, amongst other places). It’s a fabulous roster of fighting, and the 3DS version is upon us. I put on my fighting words and take the knocks to bring you this *knockout* review.
Level 5 are known for some of the most amazing JRPGs ever created, and the new Fantasy Life for the Nintendo 3DS is no different. Read on, and I’ll take you on a journey that you’re going to not want to end.
The US Postal Service honours the “quintessential American superhero” in a special edition run of stamps. It’s Batman’s 75th Anniversary this year and the set of stamps show the Caped Crusader’s iconic identity through the Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Modern ages of the American comic book.
Check out the Batman-themed stamps after the jump.
Lifted from her upcoming album, Aretha Franklin Sings The Great Diva Classics, the 72-year-old soul hits singer covers one of Adele’s chart-topping tunes, Rolling in the Deep. It’s a wonderful rendition, with an added chorus line from “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” Have a listen to it below.
Cubemen 2 is a real time strategy tower defence game made by Nnooo. It’s seen a release on many other platforms, including PC, Android, and iOS, and now it’s made its way to the Wii U. I review this particular version of the game and let loose the blocks of war.
The original Bayonetta first appeared on PS3 and Xbox360 about four years ago and it was received with differing amounts of criticism. In light of the release of the sequel, Nintendo is releasing the first game for Wii U along with some new controls and new Nintendo-exclusive costumes for the leggy witch. Let’s see how it compares to the other console versions, shall we?
