Horror Games – Halloween 2016

It’s Halloween! It’s time to trick, treat, go out, have fun, get candy from the neighbours and give respect to those living on the other side of the veil between our world and weirder ones.

It’s also a time for horror films, horror games and all things creepy, crawly, spooky and altogether ooky. On my end, I have a long list of horror films I’ll be enjoying tonight, plus a giant collection of H.P. Lovecraft stories to go through so my eerie evening is ready to go.

But it wouldn’t be Halloween in The Mental Attic if I didn’t share something with you, if I didn’t give you a little something for this most sacred and scream-worthy of holidays. So over the weekend I recorded a couple of short videos on some really fun games for you to keep an eye on: Continue reading Horror Games – Halloween 2016

Halloween 2015 Highlights

This was Halloween!

Another one has come and go, full of cheers, jeers, screams and scares. Children dressed up in scary costumes, “grown children” dressed up in scary costumes and even pets did the same. There were cemeteries, haunted houses, cursed manors and so many more home decorations out there that you could feel the spirits in the air. Continue reading Halloween 2015 Highlights

Outlast Scarethrough

After the awesome Outlast Scare-up on 1001up.com, V from VerbalSpewReview, JohnHeatz from JohnHeatz.com and I decided to do our own Scared playthroughs of the game.

I’m the first one doing it.

Following their Scare-Up, I decided I’d play the game following this rule: I play until I die, which I did, about 5-10 minutes before 1001up did, and I feel sad about that, I wanted to beat their progress…even if I complain about playing such a scary game every minute.

I have to say I was scared as hell. You can tell by that one high-pitched scream and the fact I stood still for a long while.

You can watch it here (I don’t know how to embed twitch.tv videos here)

We’ve been talking about this, and the plan is to do one of these playthroughs maybe once a month, but we’re still in the planning stages.

I hope you excuse the poor camera but I was using my laptop’s and with such a dark game and the lights out (no point in playing this game with the lights on) you can barely see me, but this is my first time doing this and I didn’t take those things into account, next time I’ll try to have a light or something close to me so you can see my horrified expressions more clearly.

Also, the video is a bit twitchy…that may be my fault for not setting things up correctly…again, first time, I’ll take care of that for the next Playthrough

Hope you like it.
