  1. Happy Halloween! It's that special day of the year where ghosts and goblins roam, candy flows like water, and the scares just keep on coming. Of course, this day happened to land in the middle of the week and just a couple days shy of Game Day, an even more special day of the year. If only there was a way we could combine the two days.... I've got it! Here are four games you can use to extend your Halloween from now until the end of Game Day! Feel the chill down your spine and the warmth in your heart as you spook yourself out for the kids this year! Dino Crisis Many people turn to Resident Evil when the need for horror arises. In doing so, a grave disservice is done to one of the few horror games that puts nature's most terrifying creatures front and center: Dino Crisis. Released in 1999, only a year after Resident Evil 2, Dino Crisis was the brain child of Resident Evil's creator, Shinji Mikami. Envisioned as something of a spiritual successor to the Resident Evil series, Mikami stated that he intended Dino Crisis to be a second revolution in horror games. Whereas Resident Evil was survival horror, Dino Crisis would be panic horror. The story concocted for Dino Crisis starred Regina, a special agent who is tasked by her superiors with infiltrating a remote research facility. Unfortunately, that facility was basically Jurassic Park after the dinos got loose. While this might cause some people to pause, Regina is forced by her handlers to move into the dinosaur-filled halls of the facility and recover the research responsible for creating the saurian abominations. If you've had your fill of Resident Evil, physical PlayStation, Dreamcast, and PC copies of Dino Crisis are still floating around as well as a digital download for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. Give it a shot if you can. Otherwise, you could wait and see if a remake is in the works since the success of Capcom's remake of Resident Evil 2 has the company looking to its old IP for other series to resurrect. Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly It's easy to downplay Fatal Frame as ridiculous when the central premise has characters fighting ghosts by taking pictures of them. However, Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly stands as one of the most chilling experiences ever released on the PlayStation II. Players take on the role of Mio Amakura, a young woman on a journey with her twin sister Mayu to uncover the mysteries of the incredibly haunted Minakami Village. Mio is armed with the Camera Obscura, a mysterious camera that's able to confront spirits with remembrances of their pasts. The catch, however, is that the Camera Obscura becomes more effective the closer the ghosts are to the camera. That means players will have to get up close and personal with the chilling ghouls that inhabit the village. If you haven't experienced what the Fatal Frame series has to offer, start with Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly. Even Neil Druckmann, the creative director on The Last of Us and its upcoming sequel, agrees! In an interview with MCV UK, Druckmann stated that Fatal Frame II: Crimson Butterfly was "the scariest kind of experience in any medium; I haven’t seen a movie that comes close." The game was originally released for PlayStation 2 and Xbox. It is available now as a digital PlayStation 3 download. Deadly Premonition Deadly Premonition is one of those games that many people have heard about, kept alive by its ardent fans, but not nearly as many have actually played. It's a fantastically odd duck, melding Twin Peaks with Japanese horror tropes in satisfying and unpredictable ways. The game follows Francis York Morgan, a detective on the trail of a serial killer. That trail leads to Greenvale, Washington where Morgan begins his investigation in earnest, interacting with the locals, occasionally dropping into surreal dreamscapes haunted by monsters, and talking with his invisible friend named Zach. As if that weren't enough, pretty much everyone Morgan encounters during his investigation has odd mannerisms and quirky interests (and many of them have at least one disturbing quality). The mystery unravels as Morgan pursues the killer, but there are plenty of strange and downright unnerving asides that give Deadly Premonition the feeling you have when you laugh awkwardly after someone says something unexpectedly dark. Deadly Premonition was released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and just received an updated port to the Nintendo Switch in preparation for the upcoming sequel Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing In Disguise. Phantasmagoria Anyone who enjoys games should be familiar with Roberta Williams. She was the first game developer to add graphics to adventure games and kicked off Sierra On-Line where she wrote and developed Kings Quest and built the company into an adventure game juggernaut. One of her last projects before retiring was Phatasmagoria, a colossal point-and-click horror game for PC that released in 1995. Phantasmagoria tells the story of Adrienne Delaney, a novelist who moves into a small mansion with her husband. While everything seems fine on the surface, nightmares begin plaguing Adrienne and soon seep out into the real world. Live-action cutscenes serve as one of the major hooks to get people into the horror elements of the game - and also made it a lightning rod for controversy when it released. As the game progresses, scenes of sexual violence play out as well as some disturbing and creative deaths that involve blood and gore effects. These combined to grab the attention of headlines and politicians across the United States when the game released, earning it condemnation from parents and figures like Senator Mitch McConnell and Arkansas' governor Mike Huckabee. Of course, the controversy served to propel Phantasmagoria to massive success, topping the sales charts for 1995. Phantasmagoria was made for adults and definitely has content that young gamers shouldn't be exposed to - however, it is definitely one of the best and most often overlooked horror games of all-time. That's not something you can say about many games with live-action cutscenes. You can buy digital copies of Phantasmagoria through Steam and GOG.

  3. Resident. Evil. Shinji Mikami's debut survival horror game that single-handedly invented the entire genre in 1996. Since then, it has been retooled and rereleased numerous times throughout the years, culminating in the release of the 2002 GameCube remake that overhauled the graphics, added new mechanics and enemies along with a few special secrets. That version has stood the test of time so well that an HD version was ported to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2015. What makes Resident Evil worthy of decades of rereleases and ports? Is Resident Evil one of the best games of all-time? To help us answer this question, we are joined by the excellent Kazuma Hashimoto (who previously came on to discuss Catherine and Resident Evil 4). Be sure to follow him on twitter: @JusticeKazzy_ Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative.
