Top 10 Scariest Video Games to Play for Halloween 2014

So it’s that time of year again, and if you’re like me, you love a good scare now and again. With October comes some great things including Pumpkin Spice coffee (Basic Bitches love these), pumpkin ales and most importantly Halloween. I don’t know about you, but I don’t need an excuse to dress up in a costume and paint the town red, Halloween just helps me blend in with you regular folk when I walk down the street on October 31. That was me last Christmas… I got socks and underwear for the third year in a row. But if you don’t make horrible body art decisions like me that’s okay, I’m sure there are other things out there that peak our combined interests, such as playing some of the most frightening video games there are, and sleeping with the light on for the rest of the month. Here’s a list of 10 of the scariest video games you can play on the nights leading up to and the very night of All Hallows’ Eve itself, if you’re not too scared that is. 10. Resident Evil 4 (Gamecube/ PS2/ Windows PC/ Wii/ mobile/ iOS/ Zeebo/ Xbox 360/ PS3) There are few games that can come close to Resident Evil 4 (well at least 9 that I can think of eh?) when it was in its prime, and I still have a soft spot in my heart for this game and what it did to revitalize the Resident Evil franchise (Even if the games are going in a less scary more action focused direction these days.) You play as Leon...

BulletStorm – February 2011 Game of the Month

Hi again and welcome back to another exciting edition of hiLounge.com’s Game of the Month. February’s GotM is Epic Games Bulletstorm, a First-Person Shooter that rewards players that “kill with skill”. Remember how in the Tony Hawk games if you did the same trick multiple times in a row the player received less points than the time before? Well apply the same idea to eliminating enemies in a first person shooter and you’ve got Bulletstorm. The amount of fun each player has playing Bulletstorm will depend highly on the amount of creativity that player has. For example would you just walk in and shoot every one like you would in every other FPS out there, will you kick that explosive barrel at the enemies and shoot it, causing a massive explosion, or would you rather use your thumper to send them all skyrocketing into the air, waiting to be leashed down only to be kicked into the air once more? The choice is yours in Bulletstorm and the possibilities are endless. Story: In Bulletstorm, you play as Grayson Hunt, a space pirate living in the 26th Century who is betrayed by his commanding officer General Serrano and subsequently dishonorably discharged from Dead Echo, the elite Black Ops army that protects the planets under Confederation control. The game takes place 10 years after the events mentioned above on the planet Stygia after an alcohol fueled scheme to exact revenge on the traitorous General and his forces goes horribly wrong, sending you crash landing onto the surface of the planet. Stygia used to be a resort planet for travelers and tourists...

January Game of the Month – Dead Space 2

Hi again, welcome to another exciting edition of hiLounge.com’s Game of the Month. Now, January’s GotM was developed by Visceral Games and published by EA Games. Dead Space is one of my favorite franchises in the survival horror genre and one that any fan of the genre won’t want to miss. Story In Dead Space 2 Issac Clarke reprises his role as the ordinary engineer sent to repair the USG Ishimura, turned bad ass necromorph killin’ machine. When we first start the game Issac is awakening from a coma (more back-story on Dead Space and why Issac was in a coma in the video below) in an infirmary ward on a super massive space city built upon Titan, one of Saturn’s moons, called The Sprawl. Isaac suffers memory loss from the coma and  is unarmed when you assume control of him. He’s also not all there mentally if you know what I mean. I mean this guy’s crazy, like crap the bed and roll around in it crazy. He mainly sees flashbacks or hallucinations of his dead girlfriend Nicole Brennan who was Issac’s main motivation in the first Dead Space. Issac’s psychotic episodes are brought on by the Marker, an alien object of intelligent design similar to the one that Issac encountered in the first game. Characters Upon battling your way through hordes of necromorphs  all the way to the end of the game here are the important people you will meet: Issac Clarke: The Protagonist of Dead Space 1 and 2, and apparently humanities only hope (Think Schwarzenegger in Predator.) , although he’s suffering from terrible dementia in the form of flashbacks and hallucinations of...
