Square Enix announced today that current "Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn" players will be able to migrate their PlayStation 3 accounts to the up-coming PlayStation 4 free of charge.
"U55: End of the Line," he Berlin-set survival horror title, promises to meld Lovecraft with claustrophobia of being trapped in a darkened subway tunnel on the PC with the potential for Oculus Rift support. As a sucker for first-person horror, I'm intrigued, but specifics laid out in the campaign leave me wondering if this project will survive.
Featuring 7.1 audio, the wireless HMZ-T3W Personal 3D Viewer promises VR gaming for PS3 and Windows PC users.
It's when you're disoriented and a little lost in the dark and the battery on your camera starts chirping that "Outlast" is at its most effective. It's the part where "Outlast" attempts to tell its complicated and largely forgettable story about an evil corporation run amok and German spirits that the first effort from indie developer Red Barrels starts to falter. In fact, after a strong and largely unsettling first hour, "Outlast," the first-person horror game Red Barrels slips from fresh and frightening early on to tired and familiar by the time the final body drops.
When LucasArts stopped making point and click adventure games a long while back, the world lost one of the most enjoyable forms of video game art. Games like "Full Throttle" and "Day of the Tentacle" were like interactive storybooks that you could sink yourselves into. Thankfully, many other developers picked up where LucasArts eventually left off, and one of those that has risen to the top of the game has been Telltale Games, developers of last year's amazing "The Walking Dead" game. Not only did it provide a top-notch storytelling experience, it also pumped plenty of emotion to and through the game. They now stand poised to do it all over again with the video game adaptation of the Bill Willingham-written, Vertigo Comics published "Fables" entitled "The Wolf Among Us."
