Didn't think I'd find myself saying this about any presenter team, but I think you two might actually be as good a pairing, possibly even better, than Johnny and Danny from Gamespot UK. That was brilliant, really looking forward to further installments. Congrats on a great show!
Oh joy, another game I would love to play but can't for the rating...Someone please man up and make a good game that isn't ruined by it's maker's M-chotic mind!
Ah good old Penumbra, such a great game, it gets better as you get further, plus its sequel, black plague... Though requiem was kinda crap... That aside, ladies, you should give Condemned: Criminal Origins a go.
That was pretty funny but that game looks horrible, id hate running around from a bunch a dogs a whole game
This was way funnier than any horror game video from YouTube, I really had a good time watching this!! Good one GameSpot!!!
@wgerardi Agreed. Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth is one of the best survival horrors I have ever played. I recommend this game to every gamer who loves gritty world, terryfing mysteries and cosmic horror. Every fan of H.P. Lovecraft should take a look. Game is based on Lovecraft's stories (like The Shadow Over Innsmouth) and Call of Cthulhu P&P RPG. Few scenes are so faithful to the HPL works, that I was simply stunned. Alone in the Dark 1 is another game inspired by Cthulhu mythos, particularly HPL's novel The Case of Charles Dexter Ward and Edgar Alan Poe's The Fall of the House of Usher. This game is the first modern survival horror and IMO still can scare you. I also like The Shadow of the Comet - Lovecraftian adventure game set in small fishing town. Graphics is obviously very dated, but atmosphere's simply amazing, especially if you have read HPL's stories like The Shadow over Innsmouth (again) and The Dunwich Horror. Another good point'n'click game is Prisoner of Ice inspired by At the Mountains of Madness. Ahh, the memories.
These games are meant to be played alone at night, or at least in the dark room.
@theteaface Frictional Games got much experience because of Penumbra series. This is why Amnesia is so good. I'm a fan of these guys and wish'em good luck. We need more developers like them.
