2-22-2018_1-53-41_PM.png

Credits: Tripwire Interactive


Pros:
+Gorgeous 4K visuals at 60fps on the Xbox One X
+All classes play differently, each coming with their own loadouts and sets of perks
+Enemies aren’t pushovers and can easily overwhelm groups of players
+Extremely low latency in matchmaking

Cons:
-Minor framerate dips do occur from time to time.


Editors Note: Due to having reviewed the PC and PlayStation 4 editions of the game at an earlier date (those can be viewed here), the review was handed to a newcomer to the Killing Floor franchise.


Just when I thought zombie games were left to The Walking Dead and Call of Duty, little did I know Killing Floor 2 was on the horizon to show me some amazing sights. Enter the finished rounds of shotgun shells dropping to the floor when you go to reload as you soon find out that you are out of ammunition. “AHHHHHHHHHH, HELP, THEY ARE COMING RIGHT FOR ME!” Thankfully I was on a team to help save me, as our medic shot me with a healing dart and took me to the nearest ammo crate and so that I wouldn’t die in our following round.

killing-floor-2_20161114220629


Pros:
+Intuitively designed class-based system that brings out the importance of each role
+Weapon designs are intriguing, creative, and overly fun
+The gore system puts almost every game to date to shame
+Each level has multiple layers, which ensures no fight is the same
+Character personalities are great and wildly amusing
+Team work is an absolute must
+Rock solid control schemes that transition well from PC to console

Cons:
Needs more cowbell (not really, we’ll pretend this con doesn’t exist)
-Micro-transactions for chest keys could deter some players.


If you’re like me, you’ve begun to groan over the Zombie trope. It’s one that has become overdone across every medium possible. Want to watch a good TV drama with some zombie humor? iZombie has you covered. Want to watch Negan cave in a man’s skull and be grossed out beyond recognition? The Walking Dead has you covered. Want to cooperatively run for your life from zombies? Resident Evil has that covered.

Want Some Games to Prepare for Halloween With? Here’s 5 to Get You Started

Halloween is just around the corner. It’s the time of year that many of us prepare for with spooks, scares, and wetting our beds with some of the scariest games to release to date. To help you prepare, we’ve decided to grab a few of our favorite options only to send you on your way with the games that’ll sate your needs.

So what do you say, shall we jump into our list? Lets do so.

#5: Outlast – PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One

outlast

When it comes to scary corridors, limited resources (batteries in this scenario), and free-roaming lunatics, Outlast takes the cake. In Outlast players take the role of a Miles Upshur, a freelance investigative journalist, whom just happens to come across the news of an abandoned asylum.

When finally getting into the place, Miles learns very quickly that the residence have taken over, and what was once a safe place is now his living nightmare. Why? Just ask that lunatic waiting to cave your skull in around the corner. Outlast is all about being sneaky, solving puzzles, and trying not to wet yourself while playing.

#4: Amnesia: The Dark Descent – PC

amnesiathedarkdescent

Taking place in 1839, horror found itself seeping from every edge of the enigmatic Brennenburg Castle. The protagonist Daniel finds himself exploring through the dark halls in order to find memories that he has locked away after finding the note that gives him this evidence. When going into the castle in which he once left, Daniel goes forth to kill the Baron Alexander.

His adventure will take players through the history of what had happened to him and lead him to losing all his memory. What players will learn is that Daniel was once part of an archaeological expedition to Africa where he explored a tomb named “The Tomb of Tin Hinan”. Within the tomb, he discovered an orb that was broken into pieces. Upon returning strange things began to happen, and now it’s time for him to solve the case of what’s actually going on.

Set as a first-person horror survival title, Amnesia: The Dark Descent was the first game to remove weapons as a portion of combat into a distinct rush for survival. Instead players are forced to use their surroundings to hide from enemy threats and to move stealth like from their enemies.

#3: Alien: Isolation

15 years after the disappearance of the Nostromo spacecraft, the daughter of famed Ellen Ripley has gone on the search for her mother. In her exploration of her mother, Amanda Ripley, is approached by an android under the name of Christopher Samuels, whom is employed by the Weyland-Yutani corporation. Meeting with her, Samuels indicates that the flight recorder of the Nostromo had been located by a ship named the Anesidora. Located on the station Sevastopol, the Seegson Corporation has set orbit around the planet KG348.

Traveling to the station, Ripley, Samuels, and Nina Tailor travel to Sevastopol only to encounter a situation they weren’t prepared for. A monster has gone on the loose, with this being a problem, Axel, a survivor on the Sevastopol, is killed by the alien creature only to set forth a string of complications. Amanda’s adventure will take her racing through the Sevastopol and the Anesidora for survival. She will take on unimaginable enemies and survive unimaginable situations.

#2: SIREN – PlayStation 2, PlayStation 4

siren

St in the Japanese village of Hanyūda, player are set to explore the village that kept itself away from the world through isolation. Following the interruptions of a ritual near Hanyūda, a rather large earthquake happens near by, and in turn the village now finds itself lost between time and space. Surrounded by a sea of red waters, the village finds itself troubled with mysterious occurrences that take place within it.

Much of the games story takes place surrounding Hisako Yao, the leader of a local religion, and one that looks to reawaken an old God who now slumbers. With the deity awake, the shibito (corpse people_ seek to go through the village while building up the god’s corporeal form once it is summoned. Their job is to also hunt down and kill any humans left in the village in order to bring him back. The game takes place over the span of three days and in those three days, fans will experience gameplay that will seem rather similar to Silent Hill fans.

Will you have what it takes to resist the Siren’s Call?

#1: Resident Evil – What platform hasn’t this been on?

resident-evil-hd

While it sounds odd Resident Evil remains one of the creepiest game to date. It is a game that still brings the elements of horror to the forefront. Resident Evil takes place on July 24th, 1998 in the Midwestern town of Raccoon City. With news of odd and inhuman murders, the Raccoon City Policy Department sends the STARS unit into the mansion.

Upon arriving, the team is sent in to search the mansion after having been attacked by monstrous dogs with their flesh rotting off. Seeking efuge in the near by mansion, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, Albert Wesker, and Barry Burton. Once within the mansion the team discovers something out of place and fits the description of the grizzly murders: Zombies. If you haven’t played the series, Resident Evil is a series that requires fans to scavenge for supplies and use their resources sparingly.
