I started World of Horror recently having seen so many glowing reviews and...it's a weird one. It's obviously super well done, and the bits of the stories I was seeing were really my gooseberry fool, but it's based on super old adventure games from the early 80s, clunky UI and all. And I have no tolerance for that gooseberry fool. That style of game was before my time and so I have no nostalgia for them, and although I'm sure this version of that interface style is in fact much more convenient, it's still very crunchy.

Which is a shame, as the stories behind it all are all Junji Ito-esque tales that I'm sure I'd love.

I might finally get around to playing Dead Space this year around Halloween. Think I've been saying that for about 3 years now, but this could finally be the year. :toot:

There’s a new instalment from the makers of “Man of Medan” out on the 30th October, called “Little Hope.”

That will be my Halloween game and the final game I will be playing on the PSS4.

Also on the PS5 launch, there’s “Observer.” Which is the same game as before but with improved graphics and effects.

I have been closely watching this one. Hopefully it will come to Xbox soon via Game Pass (i think its still early access?). I dont have a PC capable of running it, unfortunately.

My wife and I are going to start playing Until Dawn together for "spooky season". I've also just played Resident Evil and have Amnesia downloaded. :dread:

My girlfriend and I played Until Dawn together last Halloween. Part way through the evening a picture fell off the wall behind us with an almighty crash onto the floor - made us jump so much we had to stop the game. :lol: Might try again this year.
