  1. The Chant takes place at the Prismic Science Spiritual Retreat located on the remote Glory Island. When a ritualistic chant on the island goes wrong, a visiting group’s negative energy unleashes a dimension of cosmic terror called the Gloom. To survive the Gloom, players must uncover a cultish mystery spanning both past and present, as the other group members slowly go mad from a host of parasitic creatures. These horrors prey on your own fears and can be fatal unless you carefully balance your mind, body, and spirit. Players must choose to flee or fight, armed only with an assortment of spiritual weapons and abilities that seal away the Gloom, and escape from Glory Island. The Chant will be launching on PS5 on November 3rd, 2022.
  2. Soon
  3. Bad part about the 1973 matches is it having to be done in public matches that will take longer. At least in Friday the 13th you could boost quick matches in private games.
  4. Assuming the trophies match the achievements, the list doesn’t look bad. This looked hella fun in the dev live play. Really looks like a pick up and play game for all ages and skill levels. Getting this for the family. I’m really happy they showed stuff off today, am hyped now.

  5. Update: Ghostbusters: Spirits Unleashed is an upcoming 4 vs 1 asymmetrical multiplayer title from IllFonic that will see players teaming up with fellow new recruits as they set out to trap ghosts in locations like museums, prisons, hotels, and more. You'll have to use PKE Meters, Proton Packs, and Ghost Traps in order to find the ghosts and trap them before the haunting gets out of hand. Alternatively, players can control the ghost, which can fly and teleport, possess objects, and summon minions to help. Those who wish to play alone will be able to fill the empty character slots with bots to play offline. It is coming to PS4 and PS5. No release date has been given but it is aiming for a Q4 ‘22 release. Original: It appears that a new Ghostbusters game is being developed by Illfonic. From Ghostbustersnews: The news broke after the co-founder of Illfonic, Raphael Saadiq, was a special guest on the Questlove Supreme podcast, letting it slip that he was “currently working on Ghostbusters.” This past weekend at the Celebrity Fan Fest in San Antonio, Texas, Ghostbusters star Ernie Hudson was a special guest. Attractions included a variety of Ghostbusters-themed happenings, such as an Afterlife screening and a Q&A, which unexpectedly gave us a bit more insight into the upcoming video game. When asked if he would take part in another Ghostbusters video game, Hudson said: I just got an e-mail, because we’re doing another video game. They’re scheduling it now to do the recording, and I’m not too sure who going to do it, I know me and Danny (Dan Aykroyd), I think. I’m not sure about Billy (Bill Murray) will do anything on it. So, there will be another video game.” Hudson added, “When they’ll bring it out, I don’t know, but it’s definitely happening.” Hudson also talked about the approval process of his likeness, saying: They’ve been sending me prototypes of the character to get the image right, which they seem to have a hard time somehow creating my image. It’s so weird to me that they can get Bill Murray, and Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis to look exactly like they look, but I end up looking like Eddie Murphy or somebody.” When it comes to any further details surrounding the game, Hudson admitted that aside from his involvement, he doesn’t know much about the storyline or plot. Holy smokes, a new Ghostbusters game would definitely be welcome! I thoroughly enjoyed Afterlife and have a lot of the Ghostbusters video games. A new game for the new consoles could be amazing as it looks like they’re doing it right by getting the original actors.
  6. Developer Livestream just started at https://www.twitch.tv/illfonic
  7. Preorders now up. Preorder bonuses just give early to access to playable ghosts and other items. Interestingly there’s a higher priced Collector’s Edition but no details yet on everything it contains. Standard edition, digital - $39.99 Standard edition, physical - $39.99 Collector’s Edition, physical - $69.99 Physical edition bonuses above + ??? C.E. cover art likely placeholder as it’s the same as the standard edition cover.
  8. Will make revenge Kato first priority using this tip. And the rest of the revenge characters will still cycle after server closure?
  9. Horror Games Roundup from the last ~60 days (In time order to show what happened when) A bunch of new horror game announcements this round but surprisingly, not many announced for the soon-coming spooky season. With Halloween just two and half months away, there's only been a couple titles announced for release in the Fall and a couple with October launches. None specifically mentioned Halloween. Until now! Excellent survival horror The Beast Inside has been announced for Halloween '22. The next scheduled roundup due mid-October should be interesting. Maybe we'll see a lot more games with October or Halloween launches. The best time of the year is near! June NEW: DreadOut 2 added. Two years after releasing on PC, players will see a port of the Asian and picture-taking third person survival horror on July 20th. NEW: Bloodwash added. Revealed at the Puppet Combo Direct Show and releasing Fall '22. Puppet Combo's old school vibes are charming and this first person survival horror set in a laundromat is no exception. Get ready for retro laundry terror! Fobia: St. Dinfna Hotel released. Moved to archive The Chant article 3 and video 2 added. We see what the story is about and some creature designs. The Chant is looking fantastic. Daymare: 1994 Sandcastle release date change. It slipped out of it's Early '22 release window and is now targeting sometime this year. NEW: SENSEs: Midnight added. The sequel to Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story is out on PC and planning a console launch but nothing announced yet. The Dark Pictures Anthology: The Devil in Me release date (Fall '22), article 3, and video 2 added. July Last Days of Lazarus added to different genre games list Inscryption added to different genre games list MADiSON released. Moved to archive Ad Infinitum consoles (PS4, PS5), release date (April 20, 2023), article 2, and video 2 added NEW: Yomawari: Lost in the Dark added. This third person isometric and animated ghost tale is the third in the series and is releasing Oct. 25th and Oct. 28th, depending on the region. NEW: Untitled Single Player, Action-Horror Aliens Game from Survios added. We know this will be a new storyline set between the Alien and Aliens films, who the developer is, and that it's being built in Unreal Engine 5 but that's about it. It sounds promising but we need more information. Kona II: Brume added to different genre games list Paradize Project added to different genre games list. This one stands out because it's from the team behind the How to Survive series and it pretty much looks like what How to Survive 3 would look like. If you like zombies and survival aspects, the HtS games are good fun. Especially when played in co-op. This one's due out next year for PS5. DreadOut 2 released. Moved to archive August White Day: A Labyrinth Named School release date added. The PS5 version of the creepy, Korean chase-and-hide horror game will be releasing September 8, '22. NEW: Outbreak: Shades of Horror. The typically underwhelming Outbreak series is getting a big boost with this new title. It's the team's biggest and most ambitious game yet. You can toggle first person, third person, or retro-style fixed camera modes. It is coming to PS5, will have online and offline co-op, and they are launching a Kickstarter here on August 31st. Sherlock Holmes The Awakened added to different genre games list. Sherlock Holmes games developer, Frogwares, will be remaking their 2007 title from the ground up. It's coming to PS4 and PS5 in 2023. Early art and video of this Lovecraftian adventure looks amazing. As of right now, there is a Kickstarter campaign underway here and they have raised $174K of their $72K goal with 19 days to go. Two stretch goals have been unlocked, including the option to play as Dr. Watson. They are seeking additional funding due to the hardships of developing in Ukraine and the war with Russia. NEW: Alone in the Dark added. This remake of the 1992 PC title went from rumored to confirmed in a matter of days. In early August, a German website stated a new Alone in the Dark was to be revealed soon. Then it was expected to be revealed at the THQ Nordic showcase on August 12th and a leak with screenshots appeared a day prior. It was one of the first games shown in the showcase and it looks good. The Alone in the Dark series is one of the first survival horror games (as we know them) and set the standard for games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Newer titles in the long running series panned but early titles were decent and important for the survival horror genre as a whole. Hoping for the best with the remake. NEW: The Beast Inside added. This port of the highly regarded 2019 first person survival horror game for PC is due out Halloween '22 and is coming to PS4 and PS5. Consoles were always a goal, ever since the Kickstarter in early 2018. It released on PC and enjoyed success there but there was no word on the console versions. Finally, just recently, the team announced that console versions are coming Halloween. The Beast Inside has great graphics and an intriguing story line that gives the ability to play as two different protagonists in two different timelines. Also, fans of period pieces will enjoy playing as the character from the old times. It was really immersive. See you in October!
  10. All the upcoming horror games coming to a PlayStation console. I was watching new trailers for Sons of the Forest and Wronged Us and they got me excited for the future of horror games and inspired me to make a list of upcoming horror games. People that know me know I am a horror junkie with a soft spot for the genre and I like making lists, so this came naturally. Figured it would be good way to keep tabs on everything. Some of these games are highly anticipated by me and maybe you will find something here to get excited about as well. I'll keep the list updated and only include games releasing on a PlayStation console. Titles are listed in alphabetical order with an emphasis on ones that are coming soon. Videos are in spoiler tags and are listed oldest to newest if there are multiple videos. Articles are also numbered oldest to newest. By checking the archive at the bottom of the post you can see all the recently released horror games. I would love to hear about upcoming horror games missing from this list that you may know of. With the year coming to a close, let's see what we have to look forward to in 2022 and beyond!

I don't include the different genre game updates in the roundups (only the initial addition and archiving of a title) but details for those are updated in the background and they will still have the latest info. This has been quite a project and takes a lot of time but well worth it for the genre many love, even though it does feel niche sometimes. Long live Horror. Credits - Thank you to the following contributors! Ptirle Conscript addition Changelog: Archive: Bonus:
  11. Get the original trilogy on GOG for a paltry 6 bucks to see early roots of the survival horror genre. They set the standard for games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Just stay away from the films, they are very bad. The new title is expected to be revealed at the THQ Nordic showcase later today
  12. After three long years, horror game The Beast Inside is coming to consoles. Announced for PS4/PS5 this Halloween per their social media pages. This was a pleasant surprise and finally a Halloween game announcement. If you haven’t heard about The Beast Inside, it is an excellent first-person indie survival horror where you play as two characters in two separate timelines. It’s very scary and has great graphics.
  13. Does anyone if a physical version of this is available anywhere? Have not found much online nor about the company, only that they helped with Elden Ring. Also, the $49.99 price is wrong for this game. On the dev’s Discord they said it’s $34.99 on Steam, there was an error on PlayStation’s end, and are working on a fix it to get it in line with the Steam price. That’s according to comments in the video below and who knows how much stock can put into that happening. I have been pretty excited for this since it was shown at a State of Play a few months ago. It’s like a PowerStone and King of the Monsters mashup. (Still waiting for PowerStone on a modern console, Capcom). The campaign is short but still might be worth it for the right price. Especially if it is a pricing error! Here’s that video review. They gave it a 7. IGN also gave it a 7 so it doesn’t sound like a flop. If like me and the content is down your alley, this could be a lot of fun. Just hoping for a physical version or possible price drop. Edit: It happened. A day later and the price has been adjusted. It is now $35.49. Hopefully it’s a permanent price drop and not a limited time sale price.
  14. New trailer. It looks great. The more I see of this, the more I want.
  15. There are private matches so as long as trophies can be earned that way, could make a session and it wouldn’t be too bad. 5 in a row might be rough otherwise.
  16. The 00’s were very good. Don’t even have to go back to 90’s. Could buy a game, some DLC, and have some fun, carefree gaming. The last decade which I think he’s referring to, the 2010’s til now is for the most part, where we got loot boxes, season passes, mtx, pay to win, live service games, always online requirements, de-emphasis of physical copies, lack of single player modes, worry about server shutdowns, yadda yadda. While you can’t live in the past, ya gotta admit gaming was less worrisome in the past.
  17. Love that MTV trophy. A reference to the first music video they played. There’s some other fun throwbacks in the list. Have had this preordered since March but recently found out the physical is delayed til Sept. I’m so bummed.
  18. Do not have experience with the games in that video but do remember the first time being introduced to grindy achievements/trophies. It was the Seriously achievement from Gears of War 1 then they outdid themselves and created the granddaddy of grind with the Seriously 3.0 achievement for Gears 3. It was so bad it was comical. I think it was a 1000 hour plus grind.
  19. Haven’t played original so was excited to try this. Then bummed to hear they made changes because of the legal disputes with Ms Pac Man. It prob doesn’t affect the game much but this has apparently upset some fans of the original and it bothers me when games are changed, or worse, censored. Originally reported by VGC.
  20. Special Reserve hosting the PS5 physical edition preorders from Aug. 11 to Dec. 11.
  21. Game is listed at Amazon UK and the product description provides some interesting details. Casino battle royale, unsanctioned lights out, exploding barbed wire death match, and other match types are mentioned as well as tag team maneuvers and online co-op. Time will tell whether all this makes it in the game but it kinda lets us see what they have planned. Amazon UK store page Edit: listing was pulled from store. Here’s the Fightful article with the summary. Another store listing at Xtralife has popped up with further details. It mentions having 40 different weapons, daily challenges, and displays new screenshots with Thunder Rosa, Abadon, Yuka Sakazaki, and the HUD. Also a potential cover featuring CM Punk, Britt, Kenny, Moxley, and Jade.
  22. The upcoming AEW game officially has a name. Confirmed by Tony Khan at last night’s Rampage taping, where they recorded the audience for the game’s crowd noise. A story mode is planned and I hope we get unique match types they have on tv like dog collar, blood and guts, Texas death match, etc. The game has been in development for a while now and no release date has been given. They are targeting this September but next year or beyond seems more realistic. It is being developed by the established wrestling game developer Yukes and inspired by WWF No Mercy gameplay. Hideyuki Iwashita, the director of classic wrestling games WWF No Mercy and Def Jam Vendetta is also involved. Coming to PS4 & PS5 and it will have cross-platform gameplay. Are there any other AEW fans here that are looking forward to this?
  23. A good and proper list. Shame part 1 didn’t get the same treatment. If Champions of Norrath could come over that would be the trifecta. Loved all those on ps2.
  24. Went the same route as Viper. I have a WD Black P10 5TB. Costs a little over $100 and there’s a cheaper 2TB model. Just move the PS5 games back to internal storage and you can still play PS4 games from it without moving them. Internal SSD technology is still expensive. Figure the HDD will be fine and maybe in a few years the cost of SSD’s will come down. Am happy with the WD Black. It’s small, doesnt require an external power source, and the transferring of games back and forth is quick. Quicker than on the PS4 I noticed, definitely.
  25. Of course. Emergencies happen. Just saying in general, I would have planned, had free time then, and set that time aside for the session. In the end, one’s preference doesn’t matter because one can just make their own but BlindMango’s earlier post said it best-have it differentiated by it’s anytime start time and avoid that type if wanted.
