Uncanny Accounts – Destiny’s Paracausal Nightmare

Hello all and welcome back to another Uncanny Account! Last week I dipped into Hollow Knight’s lore and we explored the inevitable horror of the Infection. Try as they might, there was nothing the bugs of Hallownest could do to escape their fate. It’s a pretty scary thing to think about, but what if the…

Uncanny Accounts: A Ghost Town’s Tale in Red Dead Redemption

No matter how an individual player navigates the main quests in Red Dead Redemption, one always ends rather roughly in Tumbleweed. Located in the western part of New Austin, in the region called Gaptooth Ridge, lies this abandoned town with, thanks to storytelling in Red Dead Redemption 2, an uneasy history. Practically since the release…

Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Actually Looks Pretty Interesting

You may or may not be all that interested in Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. I know I wasn’t. I played the original on the Wii U and it was fun enough, but, just like Link’s Crossbow Training, I couldn’t really get invested in it since it was basically just a non-canon side-story. I thought…

Uncanny Accounts: The Darker Side to Kirby

Hey, folks, I’m going to be completely upfront with you about this one.  I’m writing about creepy lore in the Kirby series.  And before you laugh and walk away, bear with me for a moment longer.  Sure, at first glance, Kirby might seem like the cutest franchise to have ever existed.  But when you recall…

Uncanny Accounts – No Eyes in the Darkness

Hollow Knight isn’t exactly a horror game, but it has its share of creepy encounters and lore nonetheless. While there are others in the game that should probably rank higher, the one that’s stuck with is the encounter with No Eyes. She’s the shade of a warrior bug found in the Stone Sanctuary within Greenpath….

Uncanny Accounts: Poltergeists and Red Lyrium in Dragon Age II

In the Dragon Age series, “lyrium” is a mysterious mined substance that plays a large role throughout the games. Regular lyrium, in its raw, turquoise blue form, is extremely volatile to nearly all races, and it can only be safely extracted by dwarves of the mining caste. Processed lyrium, however, is used (delicately, though sometime…

Nier Replicant Launches April 23

Okay, so this isn’t exactly breaking news, but I’m still feeling pretty excited about this announcement. It was a pretty pleasant surprise when Square Enix announced that they would be bringing the original Nier back with upgraded visuals (and more?), so it’s going to be kind of a hard wait until Nier Replicant launches in…

Uncanny Accounts: Gyroids Hold the Souls of the Deceased

If you’re a fellow Animal Crossing fan, odds are you enjoy collecting gyroids.  In fact, there are over 100 different kinds, and they can be found in each game in the series (aside from New Horizons; we’re still waiting on that update, Nintendo).  They are a rather fun and interesting collectible due to how unique…
