    Hide and Bore

    by  • October 21, 2014 • 0 Comments

    The first hour of The Evil Within made me pretty grouchy. Why? Hiding in lockers. I’ve liked a lot of games that featured hiding from a monster. The Clock Tower series does a pretty good job of this, as did Haunting Ground. Wanna know why it’s so much more exciting to hide in a...

    EDIT: The entire awful document of everything that has gone on with the Gamergate orchestrators is available for all to see. David Futrelle of wehuntedthemammoth.com has gone through a chunk of it and brought forth some truly sickening details, but if you have an iron stomach, you can go through the whole chatlog yourself...

    You may have been kicking around Twitter a few nights ago when I gushed about how I felt about the industry.
