PT Gives a Glimpse of Horror Without the Gore

P_T__20140815170332.0This PS4 game demo opens with a familiar horror trope: you’re laying on the ground in an empty, dimly lit room. A cockroach waves its antennae in front of you. You hoist yourself up to see that the only fixture in the room is a door, slightly ajar.

What comes next is pure, electrifying horror. Gory games like The Evil Within don’t even come close to the unease you feel when you walk down a hallway or approach a closed, rattling door in PT. The tropes used are simple, yet effective at building up tension and not letting go until the ending is reached (or you’ve had enough adrenaline for the day). The ending is difficult to solve, so plan not to finish the teaser in one sitting. If you don’t have a PS4, consider watching a Let’s Play of PT, because it is worth the watch.

Hideo Kojima (Metal Gear Solid) and Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy) have come together to create the newest Silent Hill game – and this is just a teaser. Featuring Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead), the final game is sure to terrify anyone brave enough to pick up the controller.

A few days ago I found myself in the most unbearably long line at Walmart. You know, that checkout line where you wonder if the cashier has actually died because no one had moved in a solid twenty minutes. While impatiently waiting, like many shoppers, I found myself reading the covers of magazines on display. […]

Packing a Smaller Gun? Here’s How to Rock it so She Won’t Forget It.

This week I posed the question to my girlfriends on various group chats: What do you think about a guy with a smaller dick? My diverse group of female friends contains every race combination available, so I figured this would give me a reasonable pool of answers. From an anthropological perspective, the size of both […]

“The Splinter” A Supercar that Will Give You Serious Wood.

In 2008, Designer Joe Harmon took on the dubiously tedious task of building a car. But not just any car. A supercar. And not just any supercar, a supercar made of wood. The Splinter, a true labor of love, is the world’s first and only supercar constructed out of wood. After 7 years, The Splinter […]

  1. I expect it will either go off the rails with these two trying to throw in their own flavour, trying to put the same amount of effort in that one hallway into the whole game….or it’ll be fantastic.
