Nope, nope, and more nope in Dreadhalls

Guys, I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to start playing Dreadhalls. I really don’t. But I can think of no better way to round out our #Spooktober celebration than with my story about this unique and scary VR game, which is at once unforgettable, and for me, unrepeatable. Way back in…

SCP: Containment Breach – A Unique Horror Experience

The horror genre is fairly sparse in the Duck’s household, so as I pondered the topic of my final Spooktober post, I had very few options available to me.  It then occurred to me that I have never written about the spooky PC game, SCP: Containment Breach, a truly unique horror experience!  So let’s rectify…

Your Horror Mileage May Vary in BioShock

When BioShock was first described to me way back when it was first released in 2007, the words “survival” and “horror” were emphasized. Me being the chicken that I am, I subsequently avoided the game for a very long time. As if the “horror” tag wasn’t enough, the fact that this game, or any game,…

Hunter: The Reckoning – A Proper Review This Time

Though I have talked about the first game in the Hunter: The Reckoning trilogy multiple times in the past…in some really old posts from 2013…that haven’t aged the best (please do not seek them out…), I have never given the game a proper, honest review.  So without further ado, let’s discuss the Duck’s very first…

Outlast is Just Too Much

As much as I love spooky games, there’s a certain variety that I just can’t handle. These don’t just create a creepy atmosphere or build a feeling of dread like Silent Hill or Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem do. Nope, these games go straight for the throat with their scares, and it gets me every time….

Top 5 FNAF Fan Games

One can’t really talk about horror games these days without being reminded of Five Nights at Freddy’s.  Love it or hate it, it can’t be denied that this series has spawned an immense popularity, with an increasingly confusing lore, lots and lots of merchandise, and let’s not forget…fan games!  While the Five Nights at insert…

The Quest to Finish Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem

Over the years, I’ve found that there are some games that I just cannot finish no matter how much I want to. Be it poor timing, lack of ability or just a plain ol’ lack of enthusiasm, I’m just not able to get these games done. One of these is the classic Gamecube horror title:…

The Sights and Sounds of DOOM

Happy #Spooktober, everyone! As far as scary games go, images of id Software’s 1993 classic corridor shooter, DOOM, like this one… …this one…

Why I Love Luigi’s Mansion

As you may already know, for the month of October, we’re going to be covering spooky games.  While the Duck enjoys things of the spooky variety, if this post concerning Half Life 2’s Ravenholm is anything to go by, I like my spooky on the mild end of the spectrum.  (Unlike my salsa.  Make it…
