September brought BORDERLANDS 3, and though it’s not a horror game they do have a Halloween themed free DLC coming soon. It’s called Bloody Harvest and looks like a blast. You’ll see flying Rakk-o lanterns and ghosts from your previous kills, coming in contact with these ghouls induces Terror impeding your vision and gun handling abilities. Try to stay out of the burial plot the goons made special just for you but enjoy the pit full of Ratch and the bloody rivers. You’ll get to earn Hecktoplasm, legendary weapons, and of course costumes (Hey, it is HALLOWEEN)
There are several Halloween themed DLC’s heading your way including PlayerUnknown’s Battleground. That’s one you’ll have to fork over some extra dough to attain but the freaky Wizard of Oz theme might be something you’re into. I’m not here to judge you my uh, furry friend. Dead by Daylight has 20 DLC’s available, some are free. Check out www.discord.gg/fandom for more information and download a new killer.
A horror inducing release you may have missed is Silver Chains. It’s a first-person story exploration game. Solve puzzles and let the haunted music engulf you while exploring the haunted mansion. Sometimes your only option is to run and hide. It’s available on PC now but coming to the other platforms soon. Two more titles for you PC gamers, Angry Demon Studios has released Apsulov: End of Gods. It’s first-person dark adventure incorporating Norse mythology and a lot of shadow. This game was released last month and currently has mixed reviews holding a 71% on Metacritic and a 9/10 on Steam. The other is a surreal beauty named Darq. Jump scares, stealth encounters, and some tricky puzzles land this game a 7.5 from IGN.
Other newer releases include Man of Medan (ghost ship, based on the urban legend of the SS Ourang) holding at a just over average Metacritic rating, and Blair Witch, which IGN is comparing to Silent Hill and describing as “a harrowing experience best left alone by anyone without a taste for relentless oppressive fear”. Now doesn’t that sound inviting? This game is likely to screw with your head by constantly changing around key landmarks. Good luck finding your way through the forest. The movie frustrated me as I thought following the river would have been the smartest thing to do, but I’m still up for trying this.
As far as a game I’ve been most excited about (the wait for CyberPunk is loooong!) The Walking Dead: The Telltale Definitive Series. It’s an interactive storytelling game that develops as you make your choices.
There’s been controversy surrounding the game’s creation; I won’t get into that because you probably already know. The game itself is exciting with over 50 hours of gameplay and extras including an art gallery with a 3D model viewer and original music. If you’re into horror (you’re at Kendall Reviews house for cybers sake! Of course, you’re INTO HORROR!) This game will make you smile, after you let out a couple of shrieks and curse words. That’s what you’re here for.
HAHAHAHA!!! Happy Gaming!
Raised by Pentecostal preachers, horror was not a readily available commodity. As her love grew, her parents were occasionally summoned to school to talk about book reports and various projects that weren’t quite appropriate for her age. They were lost as to where she’d gotten such “trash”. Luckily for her, there was a librarian that understood her insatiable hunger for darker worlds. Even now, if she could, she’d live among the stacks.
Her penchant grew to include ghastly movies and music, which she’ll happily share with anyone listening. The love of horror continues with her favorite videogame, “House of the Dead, Overkill”. She’s not the best gamer, except when defending herself against the wrong monsters. Headshots are her speciality.
