Scary stories to play with the lights on World of Horror, a lo-fi horror RPG in which "sanity is dwindling" in a quaint seaside town, can't possibly end well for anyone – not while Old Gods are in the picture. The game has five protagonists, "each with their own story and a different perspective on the events that unfold," and it's bathed in dread.
Zombie Shark... doo, doo, do-doo, do, doo, With less than three weeks to go until the launch of creepy alt-history shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War, developer Rebellion has released a new trailer showcasing the ghoulish, violent warfare that awaits fans of this strange series, a spin-off from the Sniper Elite titles. The jam-packed trailer showcases many elements of Dead War, including characters, locations, an arsenal of explosive weaponry, special abilities and, of course, the rotting hordes of the resurrected Reich.

Why Sub Zerious? NetherRealm Studios has released the gameplay trailer for the fifth DLC character for its violent fighter Mortal Kombat 11. Taking a step away from regular MK cast members, the next kombatant is none of than DC Comics' Clown Prince of Crime himself, Joker. Known for his ruthless, homicidal behaviour, psychopathic sense of humour, and 11 Academy Award nominations, Joker will bring bringing his own unique blend of comedy and extreme violence to the Mortal Kombat universe.

But probably not in the middle of March 2020 The La-Mulana 1 & 2 collection is releasing at a terribly busy time for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One – it's out March 17, 2020, right in the middle of a month brimming with big-name games.

Welcome back, inmate Fans who are literally chomping at the bit for more footage from Atlus musou-like Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, might want to pour themselves a drink and settle in with the video below, featuring a staggering two hours of footage taken directly from the game. The video was streamed this past weekend by Japanese YouTube channel Amari Odorokanai Gacchiman wa Horror Game Bakari Yatteiru. It's worth noting that, despite the video's length, it is surprisingly slim on actual action, and mainly consists of dialogue and cutscenes, as is the Persona 5 way. We do get to see a tutorial mission, but mostly it's just the opening narrative on display here (and in Japanese, naturally). Still, it's great to see the old gang again, rocking their spiffy new duds and joined by the strangely ethereal newcomer Sophia.
Now we play the waiting game Resident Evil is back in full force, and it feels so good.Capcom has given us a few morsels of Resident Evil 3, but today, we're getting a wider look at the remake and its cast of characters – Jill Valentine, Brad Vickers, Carlos Oliveira, and the rest of the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service crew. Heck, they even threw in a Hunter just for you.

Polish up that anchor, May Arc System Works really got fans in a tizzy with its announcement of Guilty Gear Strive, the newest entry in the long-running anime fighting game series.
